With about half of all men between the ages of 35 and 65 dealing with some form of sexual dysfunction, including Erectile Dysfunction (ED), developing real solutions for this condition is a high priority.

The problem is so pervasive, pharmaceutical products such as Viagra®, Cialis® or Levitra® have become household names. While these treatments have helped many men temporarily improve their sexual function, there are a few issues with these and similar drugs. Because these medications can be dangerous to men with certain medical conditions, the number who can be helped by these pharmaceutical treatments is limited.

Fortunately, there is a better option, not only for men who cannot take ED drugs, but for any man who wants to enjoy a long-term solution to Erectile Dysfunction and a more fulfilling sex life.

Why Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a Better Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Platelet Rich Plasma is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. This therapy utilizes the patient’s own blood and cutting-edge medical technology to stimulate a healing response within damaged tissue.

This proven, minimally-invasive, nonsurgical procedure has been used for years to treat many different medical conditions, including Erectile Dysfunction, improving the patient’s erectile function, sexual performance and overall sexual health. This procedure is believed to work, in part, by improving blood flow to the area while promoting growth of the microvasculature, which, together, restores the patient’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection.

PRP Therapy helps men regain sexual function lost due to age, prostate issues, hypertension, diabetes, even side-effects of prescription drugs. Because the plasma is created by using the patient’s own blood, the risk of allergic or other adverse reactions is extremely minimized.

The PRP Process

Blood plasma contains many different solid components including red and white blood cells and platelets. These platelets contain growth factor proteins that play a key role in healing. To begin the PRP Therapy procedure, Dr. Skaliy draws a small amount of blood from the patient seeking treatment.

That blood sample is placed in a specialized centrifuge and spun to separate growth factors and stem cells from the red and white cells. This creates a super-concentrated, super-healing platelet-rich plasma.

As the plasma is prepared, the patient receives topical anesthesia to reduce any potential pain during the procedure.

When the PRP is prepared, a very small needle is used to inject the plasma into the area where the patient is experiencing symptoms. From the moment of injection, the super-concentrated, Platelet Rich Plasma goes to work on the problem, addressing the causes of the condition. Most patients report no significant discomfort during the procedure.

Start to finish, the procedure takes about 30 minutes. Patients should experience noticeable, long-term results beginning in one to two weeks, and those benefits typically last for at least a year. PRP delivers enhanced sexual performance, more confidence and greater peace of mind — all without medication.

Whether you just need a little help now and again, or it has been years since you have been able to achieve or maintain an erection, PRP Therapy can help you. To learn more, click here to make an appointment with Dr. Skaliy today.
