Erectile Dysfunction – The Secret To Achieving A Good Erection, Plus Everything You Need To Know The Priapus Shot Treatment

Erectile Dysfunction – having difficulty maintaining an erection? Concerned it may affect your relationship? Unsure of what treatment is best for you?

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is the most common sex problem that men report to their doctor. It is a common problem experienced to some degree by almost half of the UK’s male population aged between 40 and 70, although for some it starts much earlier in life.

Erectile Dysfunction

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

ED is defined as “trouble getting or keeping an erection that’s firm enough for sex”.

Though it’s not rare for a man to have some problems with erections from time to time, ED that is progressive or happens routinely with sex is not normal, and it should be treated. As men age, they may naturally find it more difficult to maintain an erection. There are many causes, which will discuss later.

How Do Erections Work?

As portrayed in movies, you believe that men can achieve an erection anywhere at any time. The fact is all men need two things to get everything working down there: intimacy, and time.

Did you know that for a penis to become erect, it requires approximately 130 millilitres of blood?

During arousal, your nerves release chemicals that increase blood flow into the penis. Blood flows into two chambers in the penis, made of spongy muscle tissue. An erection is formed when the chambers have filled.

A second set of nerve signals reach the penis and cause the muscular tissues in the penis to contract once orgasm is achieved. The blood is then released back into a man’s circulation and the erection comes down.

The penis is soft and limp when you are not aroused. You may notice that the size of the penis varies with warmth, cold or worry – this is perfectly normal.

What Causes ED?

Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can get in the way of that blood reaching a man’s penis, such including:

  • Hormones
  • Quality of the relationship
  • Psychological mood
  • Injuries
  • Blood flow issues such as those related to diabetes
  • Being over age 50
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Having cardiovascular disease
  • Having high cholesterol
  • Using drugs or drinking too much alcohol
  • Being obese
  • Lacking exercise
  • Treatments/surgery related to the prostate

Some emotional issues that can cause ED are:

  • Anxiety from previous sexual experiences
  • Depression
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Stress at home or work
  • Stress from social, cultural or religious conflicts

There are other common issues related to erections including:

  • Peyronie’s  Disease (Bent Penis)
  • Phimosis (congenital penile curvature)

Erectile Dysfunction and Its Mental Impact

When ED becomes a frequent and troubling problem, your doctor can help.

ED can cause many side effects including:

  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Distress for the man and his partner

If ED is affecting a man’s well-being or his relationships, it should be treated. Treatment aims to fix or enhance erectile function, help circulatory health and help the quality of a man’s life.

Ways to Identify Erectile Dysfunction Causes

For some men with ED, specialised testing is available to guide treatment, these include:

  • Blood test to measure blood sugar (Diabetes)
  • Blood test to check Testosterone and other male hormones

What Treatments are there for Erectile Dysfunction?

Fortunately there’s a lot that men can do with regard to their lifestyle to protect their ability to have an erection.

Some considerations include only have sex only when they wish to do so, creating the right conditions for sex. Quitting smoking, increase their levels of daily exercise and controlling body weight. Creating an environment free from stress.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatments

There are a wide variety of treatments for ED.

Non-invasive treatments are often tried first as they are the lowest risk. Most of the best-known treatments for ED work well and are safe. Oral drugs or pills known as phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitors are most often prescribed in the U.S. for ED (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Stendra)

  • Testosterone Therapy – when blood tests indicate this can help.
  • Penile Injections (ICI, intracavernosal Alprostadil) – need to be used for each intercourse session.
  • Vacuum Erection Devices
  • Penile Implants
  • Surgery to bypass penile artery damage for some younger men.
  • Priapus Shot – using regenerative techniques to regrown nerve, muscle and blood vessels.

Do The Treatments Hurt?

In general the treatments are not painful, although they can have unintended side effects. For example, Penile Injections for erections will cause the erection to maintain after climax.

The Vacuum Pump combined with the Priapus Shot have seen good results, allowing men to regain erections naturally.

How Much Does A Priapus Shot Cost?

If you’re considering a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction, the Priapus Shot then you probably want to know how much they cost?

Surgery is often expensive, but non-surgical aesthetic alternatives are usually much more affordable! Drugs and Injections have their place, however, being able to have erections naturally is preferred.

When completed by a professional, qualified and experienced doctor, your Priapus Shot treatment should only cost somewhere between £1200 and £1500.

Most typically only need one single treatment and the results should last you between 6-12 months, making them not only safe and effective – but very affordable too.

Is the Priapus Shot Safe?

Like other similar treatments, there are some small risks involved with this treatment –  but when performed by a professional and qualified doctor they are usually a safe, minimally-invasive treatment.

You might notice some minor, localised swelling immediately after the treatment but this usually resolves within 24-48 hours.

It’s always important to choose a reputable doctor, no matter what kind of treatment you’re having – but even more so with a Priapus Shot!

It’s essential that the doctor that’s treating you is professionally trained and knowledgeable if you want to get good results. They must be using a high quality centrifuge like the Magellan centrifuge.

What To Look For When Choosing a Clinic or Doctor

Unfortunately, the aesthetic industry is not nearly regulated enough. Clinics are required to be registered with the CQC if they wish to offer medical treatments. The doctor must be trained, qualified or insured to perform this type of treatment, however, there are clinics offering this treatment without the reassurance of CQC registration! Because of this it’s very important that you research and choose a doctor that you know to be qualified, skilled and safe.

So what should you look for in a clinic or doctor?

  • They must be listed on the official Priapus Shot Registryhere
  • They Should Be Professionally Qualified – A professional aesthetic doctor will have undertaken training and gained qualifications for any treatments they offer. They’ll be happy to show you their certificates. Certificates should ideally be GMC accredited and your aesthetician CQC Registered.
  • They Should Be Experienced – Skill comes with experience and practice, so ideally if you want the best results, then you should choose an doctorwho has been in business for several years.
  • They Should Be Insured – Professional aesthetic doctors understand the importance of insurance – to keep both you and their business safe. A reputable clinic will be happy to show you their insurance certificates – be VERY wary of anyone practising without insurance as it could mean the insurers won’t cover them!
  • They Should Offer Comprehensive Consultations – Before you undergo any treatment a good aesthetician will do a full consultation with you. During this consultation they’ll ask you what you’re looking to achieve, discuss the treatment options and tell you the full cost for your brow lift.
  • Must be registered with CQC – Elite Aesthetics registration can be found here:

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes premature ejaculation is a problem for men who have erection problems (erectile dysfunction or ED). Since an erection usually goes away after an ejaculation, it can be tough to know if the problem is PE or ED. ED should be treated first. Premature ejaculation may not be a problem once the ED is treated.

Can erectile dysfunction be corrected?

In many cases, yes, erectile dysfunction can be reversed. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found a remission rate of 29 percent after 5 years. It is important to note that even when ED cannot be cured, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate symptoms.

How erectile dysfunction affects relationships?

Erectile dysfunction can lead to relationship problems. … Though this obviously affects their sex life, it can also carry over into the rest of their relationship. In many cases involving women and ED, the man is ashamed to talk about it or go for help and instead pulls away from his partner. However, more men are now willing to treat their ED.

Which erectile dysfunction drug is best?

There are a large number of drugs available to treat ED.

They all tent to work in similar ways, each oral medication has a slightly different chemical makeup and therefore minor differences in how each medication works. Factors include: how quickly it takes effect and wears off, and the potential side effects. All medications should be discussed with your doctor. At Elite Aesthetics, we believe in trying to fix the root cause of ED through the use of stem cells to re-build muscle, nerves and blood vessels (Priapus Shot). However, here is some information on the drugs available.

  • Sildenafil (Viagra). This medication is taken one hour before sex. It’s effective for four to five hours or more if you have mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. Should not be taken on an empty stomach.
  • Avanafil (Stendra). This medication is taken with or without food 30 minutes before sex, depending on the dose and can  last up to six hours.
  • Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn). This medication also is most effective when taken one hour before sex and can be taken with or without food. It is effective for up to 5 hours.

Please consult your doctor before taking any medication.

Can erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes be reversed?

Erectile dysfunction can also be linked to other conditions common in men with diabetes, such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Erectile dysfunction might occur earlier in men with diabetes than in men without the disease. Difficulty maintaining an erection might even precede the diabetes diagnosis.

Please see the following information on the NHS website for Erectile Dysfunction Treatments.


Do vacuum pumps work for ED?

Vacuum pumps encourage blood to flow to the penis, causing an erection and we recommend using them for a period after the P-Shot Treatment. They work for most men and can be used if medicine is not suitable.
