P-Shot – Does This Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Hurt?

The P Shot is an incredible, innovative treatment that is helping thousands of men all over the UK with one of the most taboo topics: erectile dysfunction.

If you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction (also called impotence), it can be an emotional, frustrating and embarrassing time. It can have a negative effect on your sex life, your relationships and even your mental health. Thanks to the stigma our culture places on intimate health problems, many men feel like they have no one to talk to and nowhere to go for help.

But you don’t have to suffer in silence. Here at Elite Aesthetics, we’re experts in all things “intimate health”. Whether you’re struggling to get an erection or just looking for a way to enhance your sexual pleasure, we’ll treat you with dignity and respect as we listen to your concerns and help you to get a resolution.

The P Shot – A Media Sensation 

The P Shot is an exciting treatment that’s been taking the media by storm thanks to stories like that of Robert Schiewy, an army veteran whose penis grew 1.5 inches after P Shot treatment following an injury on the battlefield. Robert’s story went viral, helping to raise awareness of penis problems and the taboo that surrounds them.

Jimmy Croxton is another of our clients who has been heavily featured in the media with his story published in The Daily Mail, The Sun and Ladbible. Jimmy was struggling with erectile dysfunction due to his diabetes, the P Shot offered him a treatment that could help resolve his erection problems and give him the chance to enjoy a normal sex life once again.

P Shot does it hurt?

So What Is The P Shot?

The P Shot is a type of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment. While the P Shot is pretty new on the scene, PRP treatments have actually been around for many years. They’re usually used to help with soft tissue injuries such as ankle sprains or tendon damage. As time has gone on new uses for PRP treatments have been found, such as anti-ageing (Vampire Facelift) or breast enhancement (Vampire Breast Lift).

But one of the most exciting uses is that of the P Shot. Erectile dysfunction affects more than half of all men at some stage in their lives, and with limited treatments available, the P Shot is a welcome discovery.

How Does It Work

The theory is pretty simple, we use your body’s own healing platelets to stimulate the erectile tissue.

During treatment, we’ll take some of your blood – in a similar manner to a blood test. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is injected into the penis, to stimulate healing and cell regeneration.

Following treatment, men experience firmer, harder erections and greater sensation during sexual activity. Like any muscle of the body, the penis thrives on this nutrient-rich plasma. Many men notice an improvement within a few days to a few weeks, with continued results for up to 12 months – with some men finding a single treatment plan enough to improve their sex lives for good.

The Big Question – Does It Hurt?

Penis injections might sound mildly terrifying, but the reality is that it’s actually a pretty comfortable experience.

Before the platelet-rich plasma is injected we’ll numb the area with cream and a nerve block to ensure that you don’t experience any pain.

Most men say that the treatment isn’t uncomfortable and are happy to return for repeat procedures.

Following the treatments, you might experience some minor swelling or redness which resolves naturally in a few days. You’ll need to abstain from sexual intercourse for a couple of days to prevent infection, but otherwise, you can continue with your normal daily activities right away.

Other Benefits Of The P Shot

It’s not just erectile dysfunction that the P Shot can help you with, there are some other exciting benefits too.

Longer Lasting Erections

The P Shot helps to improve the circulation to the penis and increase blood flow. This results in harder, longer-lasting erections. 

Premature Ejaculation 

Premature ejaculation can be embarrassing but the P Shot could help. By stimulating healthy tissue in the penis it can improve your stamina and help ensure that both you and your partner are satisfied. 

More Pleasure 

The P Shot improves the health of the tissue in your penis and can increase sensitivity too. This increased sensitivity can help make sex more enjoyable for you and give your libido a boost too. Some men have noticed an increase in the intensity and duration of their orgasms following P Shot treatment.

More Confidence

If your libido is a little low, it could be due to poor sexual confidence. If you’re worried about the size, girth or shape of your penis, or your ability to perform sexually, it can reduce your sex drive. The P shot helps restore your sexual confidence and gives you back your sex life.

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.
