Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Erectile Dysfunction Can Be Improved For Better Sexual Performance
At CALIBRE Clinic we have developed the PRP Procedure, which is a clinical assessment and medical PRP injection program aimed at regenerating penile tissue and allowing men to enjoy long term healthy erectile function. As many as half of all men aged between 40 and 65 years will suffer from some level of erectile dysfunction at different stages in their lives. This is a very common condition and apart from the inevitable aging of penile tissue, there are other factors that can trigger impotence or erectile dysfunction symptoms at a younger age. These include illness such as diabetes, injury or surgery, drug side-effects and smoking.
A common side effect of erectile dysfunction is a condition known as Peyronies, where plaque (or scar tissue) builds up leading to curvature of the penis. Case studies show that PRP injections can soften this scar tissue and help the penis to straighten into its normal shape.
Erection Problems Now Have A Better Solution
The PRP Procedure only uses substances already naturally found in the body, namely concentrated blood platelets and growth factors. These are used to trigger repair and regeneration of tissue and vessels in the penis. This leads to enhanced blood flow and nerve sensitivity and so helps the patient to achieve and maintain a normal healthy erection. Because the PRP Procedure also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin there’s the added benefit of rejuvenating the cosmetic appearance of the penis’ skin.
There are different extraction methods for PRP. However, at CALIBRE Clinic, we recommend a system called EmCyte PurePRPII, which is the most advanced and highly concentrated extraction system available. PRP Procedure makes an excellent complimentary treatment to CALIBRE Clinic’s male enlargement procedure.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This is a natural tissue and skin rejuvenation therapy which uses the body’s own concentrated bioactive proteins and blood platelets. Activating stem cells, and releasing growth factors, PRP triggers tissue repair. PRP has long been used in the medical world for treating injuries and wound healing for these reasons and has the same benefits for regeneration in penile skin and tissue. Being a completely natural occurring product in the blood, PRP does not pose any risk of allergic reaction, sensitivity or other complications when it is extracted and re-injected under sterile clinical conditions.
There are a number of benefits and results that patients experience after the PRP Procedure. These include:
- Stronger and longer-lasting erections
- Prolonged sexual performance
- Increased sensation
- Enhanced appearance of penile skin
- May assist with prostate discomfort
- May assist with Peyronies curvature i.e. to straighten the penis
For the majority of patients, you’ll see that the skin of the penis looks more hydrated within the first week from treatment, and tissue regeneration will start after about 3 – 4 weeks. Several sessions may be arranged 4 – 8 weeks apart. For most people results of the PRP Procedure remain noticeable for about 12 – 15 months and an annual top up session is recommended so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of the PRP procedure.
* PRP Procedure results may vary from patient to patient depending upon individual circumstances and causes of erectile dysfunction. These factors will be discussed at your initial consultation.
How many treatments you require will depend upon the cause, extent and duration of your erection problems. Most patients require between 1 and 3 treatment sessions to achieve the best results and an annual refresher session is recommended to extend results. How many treatments you require will be discussed at your initial consultation with one of our men’s health doctors.
Your initial consultation with one of our doctors is one of the most important aspects of the PRP Procedure. It’s important to identify what’s causing the problems to make sure you get the right treatment for erectile dysfunction. We aim to provide a holistic medical solution. Your initial consultation may include assessments of current medications, weight and lifestyle factors, psychology, illness and hormone balance.
The first part of the procedure is a blood draw, which is double-spun using an advanced centrifuge system, precisely extracting the required components, including platelets and monocytes. These are used to stimulate growth factors and stem cells which lead to the regeneration on the penis’ tissue. This process takes around 20-30 minutes. An anesthetic cream will be used to numb your penis and the concentrated PRP is re-injected into those areas of the penis which are most important for blood flow. This part of the process takes around 10 minutes. Patients experience some swelling and inflammation during the treatment, which is expected and will subside in 1 – 2 days. You can reduce the risk of bruising during the procedure by avoiding the following items in the week leading up to your treatment: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication such as Neurofen, blood thinning medications, and fish oils.
Following your treatment, the area may be swollen for up to 48 hours but this will reduce as the fluid is reabsorbed into the body. If swelling persists after 48 hours, you should contact your clinic. It’s also normal to experience a little bruising and tenderness. You should make sure that you keep the area clean for a week and you’ll need to refrain from sexual activity and strenuous activity for the first 3 days after your treatment. You’ll be given post procedure instructions at the time of your treatment – take the time to read these and makes sure that you follow them carefully.

CALIBRE Clinic uses EmCyte PurePRP II for re-injection PRP Therapy. This advanced method of cell separation is unmatched by any other PRP procedure in terms of efficacy and concentration. Inflammatory white blood cells and red blood cells are removed, while the platelets, monocytes and other nutrients are carefully concentrated, creating the treatment which is re-injected into the body in precise amounts.
Developed by Patrick Pennie in the USA, the EmCyte PurePRP II system is a Viagra alternative. Penne is a qualified Cardiovascular Perfusioinst – he takes care of the blood supply through the heart lung machine when people are undergoing open heart surgery. From his clinical work, he developed an expert and detailed knowledge of both blood handling and blood cell biology and developed the Emcyte conical design, equipment and separation protocols. The resultant system gives purer quality separation and higher cell concentrations, with minimal cell damage. This system is far superior to previous PRP systems and delivers consistently high results. You can read a clinical comparison of the different PRP systems here
PurePRP poses no risk of allergic reaction, sensitivity or other complication when extracted and re-injected under medical conditions, however, it may not be suitable for patients with:
- Cancer or metastatic disease;
- An active infection; or
- A low platelet count.
