Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Improves Erectile Function
Aging sucks. Muscle becomes harder to maintain, hormone levels decrease, and you just don’t have as much energy as you used to. As men grow older, all kinds of body parts start to slow down or wear out. You may even lose some of your sex drive.
However, that doesn’t mean you’re doomed to live a life without romance just because you’ve gone a bit over the hill. If you’re starting to have some trouble pleasing your partner like you used to, there’s no need to throw in the towel and stop having a good time. There are treatments available that can help alleviate the symptoms of some causes of erectile dysfunction and help you regain your innate charm in the bedroom.
Blood flow creates the magic
You probably already know that increased blood flow to that most critical area is what makes the magic happen in the bedroom. Low blood volume, low oxygen in the blood, and anemia can all lead to problems with creating and maintaining an erection in men. If you don’t have any other diagnosed health conditions, you may just need a little boost to regain the prowess you once had. Anything that helps boost blood volume and efficiency can help you function better where it matters most.
Erections happen because of a sudden rush of blood flow to the penis. There’s a complex network of blood vessels that fill quickly with blood until the penis expands and becomes ready for action. If blood volume, quality, or pressure is insufficient, this reaction won’t work correctly and the result may be disappointing in either strength or duration. ED is typically a result of hormone issues, blood flow issues, and/or neurological issues. Blood flow can either be arterial (blood flow in) or venous (blood flow out – specifically leaky venous syndrome). PRP therapy can assist with healing these structures to improve blood flow in or decrease blood flow out of the penis, resulting in improved erections.
How platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can improve erectile function
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)is a safe and effective procedure that doesn’t need to be performed at a hospital. A technician draws the patient’s blood, puts it in a centrifuge and retains the platelets and plasma. After drawing blood, the cellular structures (WBC and RBC) are separated out leaving platelets and plasma (the acellular component). Platelets assist the healing process with growth proteins, acting as a sort of fertilizer for the body. Minimal, typically procedural side effects such as mild swelling are the only usual observable effects.
This process shows promising results for conditions like erectile irregularity and poor function. PRP has been successfully used to treat hair loss, joint problems, and to accelerate wound healing. Neurologic issues can lead to sensation deficits that can result in ED, including a decrease in firmness or challenges with achieving orgasm. PRP therapy can assist with healing these structures and improve ED issues, leading to better sexual satisfaction.
