Guys, are you struggling to enjoy sex the way you used to? Is there something getting in the way of your desire or ability to have a satisfying sex life? If you answered yes, at YourSkinRN in Kitchener, Ontario we would like to introduce you to an exciting sexual rejuvenation treatment called the P shot. While age-related changes in sexuality are more commonly associated with women’s health, symptoms can occur in men as well, and they may include low libido and erectile dysfunction (ED).
It is estimated that as many as 30 million men in the U.S. currently suffer from ED, making it the most commonly treated sexual disorder in the country. For years, the standard approach to dealing with erectile dysfunction was either medication or surgery, or a combination of the two. If you’re dissatisfied with your sexual performance and have been let down by your previous attempts to address the issue, read on to learn more about the latest treatment for combating ED.
What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is defined as the consistent inability to achieve and maintain an erection. This can make sex difficult even if you have a high sex drive. While men of any age can experience ED, it becomes more common as we age.
Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction:
- Soft erections
- Erections that don’t last
- Inability to ejaculate
- Reduced desire for sex
Possible Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
Physical causes account for the vast majority of ED cases and include:
- Prostate cancer surgery
- Coronary artery disease
- Peyronie’s disease
- Kidney failure or dialysis
- Neurodegenerative conditions
- Testosterone deficiency
- Thyroid disorders
- Side effects from medications
- Sleep apnea
- Surgical trauma or complications
- Injury to the pelvic region
Psychological and Emotional
Psychological and emotional causes are much less common and more difficult to pinpoint. Some of the psychological causes of ED include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Fear of intimacy
- History of sexual abuse
- Limited sexual experience
Lifestyle and Habits
Lifestyle habits can be contributing factors and often overlap with both the physical and psychological causes of ED:
- Alcohol abuse
- Use of recreational drugs
- Lack of exercise
- Poor diet
Regardless of the cause, YourSkinRN is pleased to offer the most advanced treatment options for men seeking to restart or improve their sex lives.
What Is the P Shot?
Named for the Greek god of fertility, the Priapus Shot (P shot) is an innovative sexual enhancement treatment for men. It’s drug-free, painless, and noninvasive and has safely helped thousands of men over the past decade to improve their sexual health. The treatment has proven to be a game-changer in the field of male enhancement.
How Does It Work?
The treatment relies on platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a technology originally used in wound healing and dentistry. Sports medicine and pain management doctors have been using it for years to treat orthopedic conditions including tendonitis, muscle strains, arthritis, joint pain, inflammation, and cartilage injuries.
Most ED cases are related to poor blood flow to the penis. With PRP, we use your body’s own healing power to increase circulation to the penis. There are just a few steps involved in this simple, in-office procedure.
First, a small volume of blood is drawn from your arm. This is about the same amount you’d give at the doctor’s office, so there’s no need to worry about getting tired or dizzy. The blood is then processed in a machine called a centrifuge, which spins down the blood to separate the platelets and stem cells from the red and white blood cells. The platelets are treated with a calcium chloride solution, which triggers the release of eight different growth factors that the body uses to rebuild tissue.
A local nerve block is used to temporarily numb the penis and a topical anesthetic such as lidocaine cream is applied to the region. Our certified medical professional will then use a thin needle to strategically inject the concentrated PRP into specific areas of the penis. This stimulates the regeneration of tissue, blood vessels, and nerve cells around the injection site.
Is It Safe?
Unlike ED medications, this treatment uses your body’s own plasma, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction or adverse effects. Since no cosmetic fillers are used, lumpiness is also not a concern.
This treatment has been performed thousands of times with no reports of serious complications. It is the safest and most effective natural alternative to drugs and surgery.
How Long Does It Take?
The treatment itself takes about 30 minutes, but you should plan on being in the office for about an hour. Since no incisions are made and no implants are used, there is no downtime. You’ll be up and moving around the same day and can resume sexual activity that night.
While the P shot has been proven effective on its own, results may be optimized when combined with a penile pump. This medical-grade device creates a vacuum around the penis and promotes blood flow to the area. This protocol involves using the pump each day for 30 minutes for six weeks after your treatment.
What Kind of Benefits Can I Expect?
Individual results may vary but most patients report one or more of the following benefits:
- Increased penile blood flow
- Increased sexual pleasure
- Increased sensitivity
- Stronger erections
- More frequent and sustained erections
- Increased firmness
- Improved stamina
- Less “down time” between erections
- Less risk of premature ejaculation
- Improvement in urinary incontinence
- Fewer prostate issues
- Less plaque buildup
- Improved skin texture and appearance
- Enhanced length and girth
- Better intimacy for you and your partner
- A lower dose of ED medications
How Long Does the P Shot Take to Work?
Some of the results can be seen immediately. Many men report a significant increase in the size, shape, and duration of their erections within a few hours of the treatment and continue to see improvement over the next several months as tissue renewal is achieved and improved blood flow is established.
How Long Does The P Shot Last?
The effects can last for as long as 18 months. Since we’re restoring the functionality of the penis naturally, rather than with chemicals, the increased blood flow can last years and may be permanent in some. The treatment can be repeated as often as you need. Just talk to us.
YourSkinRN is also a provider of GAINSWave, another cutting-edge treatment option that is sometimes combined with the P shot. The two treatments have been shown to work synergistically, with each enhancing the effects of the other for maximum results.
How It Works
GAINSWave is a form of acoustic therapy that involves the use of a wand to send high-frequency shock waves through the penis. Similar to the shot, GAINSWave helps to expand blood vessels in the penis, but it also stimulates the formation of new blood vessels. The new blood vessels that are formed during this process allow the growth factors from the PRP to penetrate more deeply into the penile tissue.
This speeds up healing in the damaged areas. An additional benefit seen with GAINSWave therapy is that it assists the body in breaking down plaque in the penile area. The effects of GAINSWave can last up to three years. Several additional treatments may be recommended for maintenance.
Both treatments are drug-free, noninvasive, and virtually painless. Unlike prescription medication, they address the underlying cause of most ED cases—poor blood flow.
Am I a Candidate?
The treatment is appropriate for men of all ages. It can especially benefit those experiencing erectile dysfunction, a condition that will affect 1 out of every 2 men between the ages of 35 and 65 at some point in their lives. It can help with ED regardless of whether it’s a new issue or something you’ve been struggling with for years.
The shot may be particularly helpful for those who have lost erectile function because of certain health issues. Those with Peyronie’s disease, for example, have plaque buildup that causes a bend or curvature in the penis, making intercourse painful or impossible.
Erectile dysfunction is also one of the most common symptoms among men suffering from neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis (MS). These diseases are marked by progressive damage to the nerves, some of which are associated with erectile response.
Diabetes and blood sugar dysfunction can also lead to nerve damage in the penis. High cholesterol and atherosclerosis typically result in a narrowing of the blood vessels and a hardening of the arteries. These conditions can impede blood flow to the penis. Your doctor may have recommended certain lifestyle changes to combat these issues, but if those haven’t been enough to have a positive effect on your sexual health, you may be a good candidate for treatment.
Many American men are taking medications to manage chronic health conditions and the side effects these drugs cause can contribute to ED. These medications include antidepressants, blood pressure drugs, hair regrowth medications, and narcotics and other painkillers.
Libido and Size Concerns
While men with medical issues may experience a more dramatic benefit, this treatment is indicated for any man looking to improve the size (a 10-20% increase on average) and function of his penis without drugs or surgery.
If you suffer from any of the following conditions, then this treatment may be right for you:
- Low sex drive (libido)
- Decreased sensation and pleasure
- Inability to achieve firmness during intercourse
- Difficulty maintaining firmness
- Decrease in size
This treatment may also appeal to you if you’ve had little or no success with commonly prescribed ED medications like Cialis and Viagra. These drugs commonly cause side effects, such as headaches, skin flushing, gastrointestinal issues, and vision changes and are therefore not long-term options for many men with ED. Men who continue with these drugs post-treatment often find that the medications work even better, and often at lower doses. You may find that other male sexual health therapies are more effective as well.

Erectile dysfunction can lead to embarrassment, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. While we may not be able to stop the aging process, men looking for a better sex life are no longer limited to creams and medications. The P shot can help you regain that lost confidence.
