Men's Health Q & A

What men’s health issues are a common part of aging?

Some men experience andropause, which is very different from female menopause, but refers to age-related hormonal changes and declining testosterone levels. For most men, testosterone declines gradually throughout adulthood — about 1% each year after age 30 — rather than abruptly. But, that doesn’t mean men don’t face challenges with issues like:

  • Incontinence
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Lower libido
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Weight gain and increased body fat
  • Emotional changes, such as depression or low self-esteem

Fortunately, you can get help for many of these with natural remedies and simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. Dr. King offers BioTE® hormone replacement therapy for men with “low T” levels, plus the revolutionary P-Shot® for low libido and improved sexual health. Dr. King also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration for thinning hair and male pattern baldness to help restore your self-confidence naturally.

What is the P-Shot?

The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot®, uses your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to promote new cell growth and naturally enhance and rejuvenate sexual function. During this two-step procedure, Dr. King takes a blood sample from your arm and separates the platelets from the other blood components in a high-speed centrifuge to create platelet-rich plasma. This PRP then gets injected directly into your penis through a tiny needle.

The PRP releases growth factors to heal your body at the point of injection. It improves sexual function and has many other benefits, including:

  • Increased blood circulation in the treated area
  • Enhanced sensitivity
  • Increased sexual stamina
  • Firmer erections
  • Reduced urinary incontinence
  • Reduced prostate discomfort

Because the PRP solution in the P-Shot is completely natural and comes from your own blood, there’s no risk of adverse reactions. This makes the P-Shot an ideal choice for men who don’t want to take oral medications for erectile dysfunction.

You don’t have to wait until the aging process kicks in to benefit from the P-Shot, as any man dealing with ED can benefit from this innovative treatment method.

Our BTL Emsella™ chair is the latest non-surgical urinary incontinence treatment available today. This amazing chair uses non-invasive electromagnetic energy to cause pelvic floor muscle contraction. In men, it has been shown to also improve erectile dysfunction and can be combined with the P Shot to maximize results.

There is an increasing body of clinical research supporting the effectiveness of shockwave therapy for the treatment of vascular-related erectile dysfunction. Our Zimmer Shockwave Machine can be combined with the P Shot and the BTL Emsella chair to improve the outcome of Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease treatment.

How does PRP work for hair restoration?

As with any PRP procedure, it begins with your own blood donation so Dr. King can separate the blood components containing the highest concentration of growth factors. For the purpose of hair restoration, Dr. King injects the PRP directly into the areas of your scalp where you experience hair loss due to age, heredity, or both. The PRP stimulates your hair follicles to begin regenerating cells for new hair growth.

Over the next several months, after a series of PRP treatments for hair restoration, most men notice new, fuller hair in the treated areas. PRP for hair restoration not only restores your hair, but your self-confidence as well.
