What Is PRP? And Is It The Best ED Treatment?

PRP for ED

Looking for the best ED treatment? Have you ever heard of PRP? It’s a revolutionary treatment that’s taken both the aesthetics and medical world by storm due to its potent ability to restore and revive.

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is proven to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, and it can even revive your skin, giving it a youthful glow. 

But that’s not all. PRP can also be used as an effective erectile dysfunction treatment but is it the best treatment for ED? 

Keep reading to find out… 

What Is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains essential cell-regenerating growth factors that can be used to stimulate the growth of new, younger tissue and increase blood flow. 

A PRP procedure works by taking a small amount of your blood which is then spun at a high frequency within a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. This is then injected into a treatment area. In this way, PRP injections use an individual patient’s healing system to heal and regenerate.

What Is PRP Used For?

PRP isn’t new; it’s actually been used for decades in the medical field, dating as far back as 1975. Because it’s derived from a patient’s blood, it is a natural and safe treatment, and there are many different PRP treatments available, such as:

When the P-Shot is used to treat erectile dysfunction, it can also increase the size and firmness of your erection and boost your sexual performance, stamina and girth, putting it firmly in the running for the best ED treatment. 

P-Shot Results

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. It’s the most common sexual problem that men report to their doctors, and many men struggle to find the best ED treatment for them.

ED might affect you occasionally, or you may find yourself frequently dealing with the issue. Some of the most common causes are:

  • Age
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Cardiovascular
  • High cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Peronie’s Disease

If you’re suffering from ED, you’re probably searching for a solution, but you don’t want to rely on pills, pumps and potions – you want the best ed treatment out there. 

PRP For Erectile Dysfunction

The Priapus Shot, also known as the P Shot, is a pioneering treatment often used for erectile dysfunction. It helps to improve issues such as impotence or the inability to maintain a firm erection.

One of the things that makes PRP one of the best ED treatment options available, is that it harnesses the power of your own ability to regenerate. First, your doctor will take some of your blood, much like in a blood test. Then the blood is put into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

The PRP contains cell-regenerating growth factors that are used to stimulate the growth of new, younger tissue and increase blood flow. For many years it has been used in medical and aesthetic treatments, but experts have also found that using the same process can combat erectile problems, giving men more treatment options.

At Elite Aesthetics, we use a specific FDA Approved centrifuge to give the best possible results, and we’re the only clinic in the UK to use this particular centrifuge for the P Shot.

Once collected and ready, your PRP is injected into your penis. This might sound uncomfortable, but you don’t have to worry, we carry out the procedure under local anaesthetic, so you’ll experience little to no discomfort.

Following treatment, our patients experience firmer, stronger erections and reduced or resolved erectile dysfunction symptoms. 

The Best ED Treatment: PRP vs Alternatives

Although we believe PRP to be one of the best ED treatments out there, there are other options available too. 


ED medications allow the blood vessels in the penis to relax and increase blood flow. Side effects can include headache, flushing, upset stomach, nasal congestion, vision problems, diarrhoea, dizziness and rashes.

Lifestyle changes 

Making healthier lifestyle choices has been known to improve symptoms of ED. Things like quitting smoking, exercising more and consuming less caffeine and alcohol.


Some research supports that supplements, including vitamin D, red ginseng, L-alanine, L-carnitine and Tribulus Terrestris can treat mild to moderate ED. However, not everyone responds to these supplements in the same way, and some men have reported little to no change after taking them.

ED Ring 

There are wearable devices, such as an ED ring which can help you maintain an erection. These are most suitable for men who can get an erection but have trouble sustaining one.

ED Pump

An erectile dysfunction pump is a device to help achieve and maintain an erection by drawing blood into the penis via air suction. It’s not a cure for erectile dysfunction but it can help increase your ability to have sexual intercourse.

Are There Risks With PRP?

PRP is so popular because there is little to no risk associated with it. There’s no risk of allergic reaction as it’s your own blood, and the treatment is comfortable. However, you might have slight swelling/bruising from the injection side, but this will be minor.

PRP injections are minimally invasive and very safe when completed by an experienced doctor. 

How Much Does It Cost?

The P-Shot procedure at our clinic in Kent takes about 45 minutes to an hour. You can return to your daily routine immediately and can even resume sexual intercourse on the very same day. In some cases, the results are immediate, but they may take up to 3-4 weeks to be fully noticed.

Treatment starts from £995, and we have a range of finance options available to make treatments as manageable as possible.

Is PRP The Best ED Treatment For You? 

PRP as an erectile dysfunction treatment is fast working, non-invasive and gives a great outcome. If you think that it could be the best ED treatment for you, then the first thing you need to do is get in touch.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
