A Lot Bigger!
The P-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the arm. PRP (platelet rich plasma) is derived by taking the blood and separating the platelet rich portion from the red blood cells by running it in a special centrifuge. What is left is a substance rich with a host of different growth factors important for healing.
A numbing cream is applied to the penis prior to the procedure so that there is minimal, if any, discomfort. Once the PRP is extracted from the blood, it is injected into the numbed shaft of the penis.
The injection feels like a slight pinch or warm sensation. There is no recovery time, and including the numbing process, generally takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Patients have reported a range of positive effects from the shots including:
Better blood flow to the penis
Greater arousal and sensation
Better ability to maintain an erection
Potential to reduce doses of some medications
Increase in girth in some patients
Increase in length in some patients
There is no down-time from the procedure, and some men notice near immediate results. Full results appear in about 2-3 months.
What Does It Help With?
P-Shot Can Help With:
Maintaining an erection
Blood flow to the penis
PRP can also be an effective treatment to treat Peyronie’s Disease, a condition resulting from fibrous scar tissue resulting in a bend in the penis that can make erections painful.
It is important to remember not all PRP is created equal. At Lumera Regenerative Medicine, we use a centrifugation system from AccCelerated Biologics, a company that is in the forefront of technology within the regenerative medicine industry. The result is superior quality PRP which is much higher in platelets, growth factors and other healing substances than that produced by many other centrifugation systems.
The P (Priapus) Shot
The P-Shot (aka Priapus Shot), is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that uses your own PRP (platelet rich plasma) to rejuvenate the penis.
So, when PRP is injected into an area of the body, the body responds to that area as if it were healing an injury. With the P-Shot, there is formation of new cells, blood vessels, collagen as well as other supporting structures of the penile tissue, resulting in a rejuvenating effect.
The benefits of the P-shot include an increase in sensitivity during sexual activity, an increase in sexual desire (especially if paired with hormone therapy in appropriate patients), and may result and an increase in girth or length of the penis in some patients.
About 50% of men in the United States suffer from erectile dysfunction after the age of 40. At Lumera Regenerative Medicine, we want men to know that if they have suffered from a loss of function or desire this treatment can help bring back the excitement.
Is the P-Shot a drug?
The P-Shot is not a drug. It’s a procedure performed in which your own blood platelets are injected into penile tissue. The theory proposed by the inventor, Dr. Charles Runels, is that platelets naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area, and generate healthier and more functional tissue.
Are there P Shot Complications?
Most patients experience minimal to no side effects after receiving the priapus shot. However, you may experience mild redness, swelling and/or numbness for the first few days to one week.
What results can I expect?
The results can vary depending on the patient’s starting point. For example, factors such as age, medical conditions, and hormonal imbalance can determine the results.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
