Love-Shot for Men’s Sexual Health
The Love-Shot enhances male sexual health and performance. Issues such as erectile dysfunction and undesirable penis girth and length can be improved with the Love-Shot. Even those with Peyronie’s disease (curving or ‘bending’ of the penis) can see improvements with this treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Love-Shot and How Does it Work?
The Love Shot is a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection into the penis. Generally, PRP is extracted from the patient’s own blood and is extremely rich in natural growth factors and nutrients, which stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and potential nerve generation.
What Issues can be Treated with the Love-Shot?
PRP therapy is versatile, and can be used to treat a variety of issues. These include, but are not limited to:
- Erectile dysfunction (inability to maintain erections)
- Premature ejaculation
- Peyronie’s disease (undesired curvature of the penis)
- Undesirable girth of penis
- Low sensitivity and sensation
How Long Does It Take for the Love-Shot to Work?
Results can be seen gradually in 1-6 weeks following treatment. A 2nd and 3rd treatment will be needed to optimize results.
How Long Does It Take for Recovery? What are the Side Effects?
There is no downtime following treatment, although some patients may have mild bruising and tenderness at the injection site right a[er their treatment. We do not recommend sexual activities for 2 days or until the bruising or tenderness settled.
How Long Does It Last?
The Love-Shot is typically reported to last up to 18 months after three consecutive treatments. However, some patients have seen results linger two years after their treatment. Routine touch up treatments can help prolong the results and benefits.
How Do I Prepare for the Love-Shot?
Please let us know if you are on Warfarin, Coumadin, or other novel anticoagulants; it is a contraindication.
In order to avoid bruising:
- A week before your procedure, avoid if possible using NSAID blood thinners such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Motrin, and Advil.
- A week before your procedure, avoid fish oil, vitamin E, vitamin A, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, and gingko biloba.
- 48 hours before your procedure, avoid alcohol.
