instructions and FAQs

PRP Penile Injection is a favorite among out male patients. We use the patient's own Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, to activate the release of growth factors and other proteins. This process, in turn, activates stem cells and stimulates cellular repair and regeneration. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occurs and further aids in tissue repair.
Benefits Include:
  • Stronger, firmer erections
  • Easier to achieve and maintain erections (i.e., improved sexual stamina)
  • Increased penile length and girth
  • Improvement in or resolution of penile curvature from Peyronie’s Disease
  • Resolution of penile pain with erection
  • Increased sensitivity in the penis
  • Better overall blood flow to the penis
