Erectile dysfunction (ED), is no laughing matter. An estimated 18 million men in the US experience some form of ED. Symptoms can be mild decrease in performance to complete inability to achieve an erection. There are many causes and now there are many options for treating ED.
If you have ED, the first thing you should do is to visit your doctor to make sure it is not a symptom of a more life threatening medical condition such as cardiovascular disease or uncontrolled diabetes. Checking your hormone levels will also be helpful.
Treatments vary from psychological to medications to surgery. Drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are the most commonly prescribed treatments. However, these drugs can have side effects and may not be an option for some people who are on heart medications. Testosterone replacement is growing in popularity, but supplementing your testosterone can suppress the production of your own natural testosterone if you are not actually suffering from low T. Penile implant surgery is the last option for people who do not respond to any treatment.
Priapus Shot® also known as a P-Shot®, is a new method of treating ED that your doctor may not have considered. The P-Shot is a simple procedure but it can only be administered by a doctor or nurse with specialized training in this technique. This procedure takes advantage of the regenerative potential found in your own body.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is being used in all fields of medicine. Athletes get PRP injections to quickly recover from acute and chronic sports injuries. Plastic surgeons are using it to regenerate collagen and skin in the face and to grow hair. Wound care doctors are using it to heal chronic wounds. The potential benefits are limitless.
It turns out that the platelets that are circulating in your blood are actually storehouses of growth factors that are released in response to any injury. When the platelets become activated, the released growth factors signal stem cells to come to the area and start healing the damaged tissue and it initiates the creation of new blood supplies to the area.
The P-Shot involves taking a sample of blood from your arm, extracting the platelets, activating them to release the growth factors and injecting the potent solution into strategic areas of the penis.
Within 3-6 weeks after a P-Shot injection, men are experiencing increased sensation, increased ability to have and sustain an erection and even a modest increase in size of their organ.
At Omni Aesthetics, the P-Shot is performed by Dr. H. William Song or his registered nurse. Dr. Song trained personally with the inventor of the Priapus Shot Dr. Charles Runels. Dr. Song is also an official trainer for other physicians who want to learn how to perform this procedure. Dr. Song works very closely with Dr. Runels to ensure that physicians and nurses performing this treatment are properly trained and receive ongoing support for advancements in the technique.
Safety Although the P-Shot is very safe, the penis contains many vial structures that could be injured if the procedure is performed by untrained practitioners. Please make sure that your doctor is an official provider by checking the director of P-Shot providers: http://priapusshot.com/members/directorywww.priapusshot.com/members/directory/
What is GAINSwave? GAINSWave® is a revolutionary drug-free, surgery-free, and non-invasive therapy that uses pulsed acoustical waves, providing a breakthrough solution for men seeking better erections and optimal sexual performance. Having Problems in the Bedroom?As a man, there is nothing you fear more than not being able to perform while you are in bed with your partner. Not only can this be very frustrating and embarrassing, but it may worsen as you age. Whether you are unable to achieve an erection or function is simply not what it once was, a decrease in sexual function can be a detriment to not only your confidence but also your relationships. GAINSWave® can help any man seeking to improve their overall sexual function and performance.
How Does it Work? Steady blood flow is the key to erectile function. As men age, the blood vessels in the penis deteriorate and fill with micro-plaque reducing blood flow to the penis. For over 15 years, therapy similar to GAINSWave® known as Shockwave therapy has been successfully used in Europe to help men with ED. However, it’s new to the U.S. and Canada.GAINSWave® therapy uses pulsed acoustic waves to open existing blood vessels and stimulate the formation of new ones. The resulting improved blood flow helps any man, not only those with ED, to obtain stronger and more sustainable erections.
The GAINSWave® ProcedureGAINSWave® therapy is a series of simple in-office procedures that is completely non-invasive, drug-free, and surgery free. Your local Certified GAINSWave® provider in Oakland, NJ will review your symptoms and recommend the right protocol for you. Typically treatments last between 15 to 20 minutes. There are little to no side effects and no downtime. Men usually experience the full benefits after a series of 6 to 12 procedures, but many experience improvements immediately following their first few procedures. According to research benefits can last up to 2 years (NCBI). Who Can Benefit from GAINSWave®?Any man looking for improved erectile quality and optimal sexual performance can benefit from GAINSWave® with these treatments:
Erectile Dysfunction Relief - Erectile Dysfunction Relief - Over 50% of men will have some degree of erectile dysfunction in their lifetime, which is often a result of lack of blood flow. GAINSWave® therapy opens existing blood vessels and creates new blood vessels in the penis resulting in increased blood flow creating stronger and longer lasting erections.
Peyronie’s Disease Relief - Peyronie’s Disease is known to be an increasing problem with 5-10% of men suffering from this condition. Scar tissue forms under the skin of the penis resulting in curvature of the penis and painful erections. Most men subsequently develop ED as the body’s natural defense mechanism against pain. GAINSWave® is a revolutionary, drug-free, surgery-free therapy that can break down the scar tissue and address all aspects of Peyronie’s Disease allowing for straighter, healthier, and pain-free erections.
Sexual Performance - Often, men over 30 notice decrease in their sexual performance. Even if you don’t have ED, but always want to stay on top of your game, GAINSWave® is for you. GAINSWave® can provide stronger erections, decrease recovery time between orgasms, increase sensitivity, and boost your confidence.
For patients looking for more significant results, Dr. Song also offers Stem Cell Treatments. Instead of using platelets to attract stem cells, the actual stem cells can be extracted from your fat and injected like the P-Shot. This technique is a little more involved because the stem cells will need to be harvested by doing a mini liposuction, but the results are even more impressive.
If you are interested in increasing the size as well as the function, a Collagen Implant Therapy (CIT) can be performed at the same time as your P-Shot or Stem Cell treatment. A microscopic implant material called PMMA and collagen are injected along the shaft of the penis to increase the girth. When we combine this with PRP, the PMMA acts as a scaffold for your own collagen to form around it. The increase in girth is due to formation of your own collagen and skin and will last for 5 years or more. The only FDA approved PMMA product for injection into soft tissue is Bellafill®. Bellafill is approved for injecting into the face so injecting into the penis would be an off label use of this product. Using the right PMMA product is crucial to obtain the best results. Some people travel to clinics in Mexico because cheaper PMMA products are available, but this is asking for trouble. The size of the particles, if too small or too large, can cause nodules. If the particles are suspended in water instead of collagen the particles can clump and cause deformities. Your own fat can also be used for this procedure, but most patients prefer the PMMA because they find the fat to be too soft. The ultimate treatment would be a combination of PMMA and autologous fat. Our midlife overhaul package would include: 1 round of CIT with 5 syringes of Bellafill and PRP followed by 6 treatments of the Gainswave® protocol acoustic wave therapy. 3-4 weeks later, a fat transfer procedure which involves liposuction to small area such as lower abdomen or flanks and transfer of live adipose tissue to the penile shaft over the Bellafill. Injection of regenerative cells harvested from you own fat to maximize function.
