Evidence suggests that platelets can promote the body’s natural healing process. This type of penile injection can help repair damaged tissues in the penis with zero side effects, as concluded by an abstract in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

This therapy involves drawing some of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets — which are responsible for encouraging the growth of new cells and blood vessels. The resulting concentrated solution of platelets is injected into the penis to make the area more sensitive and improve all aspects of sexual function including libido, arousal, and orgasm.

Hair loss in men is often caused by a hereditary condition called androgenetic alopecia. Medical experts theorize that platelets can help trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft

In this three-step, in-office treatment, our providers will draw your blood, separate it into concentrated platelets, and inject it into the scalp. Platelet therapy for hair growth works best in patients with thinning hair, because it can help stimulate thin hair to grow thicker.

What are platelets?

Platelets play a key role in the body’s natural healing process. Defy Medical uses them in targeted injection treatments to help promote healing in specific parts of the body.

One of the most important functions of platelets is promoting angiogenesis, or the process of forming new blood vessels from pre-existing blood vessels. Over the years, physicians and medical experts have recognized that re-establishing blood flow through angiogenesis is critical for healing.

Platelets also mediate cell differentiation, migration and cell-to-cell adhesion through the release of various growth factors, cytokines and adhesion molecules.

How does platelet therapy improve your quality of life?

Through this therapy, you can begin minimizing the effects of sexual dysfunction, joint pain, hair loss, and other conditions. 

First, we draw your blood and use a centrifuging machine to separate out the platelets. Once the platelets are concentrated, we inject them into specific areas throughout the body to promote regeneration and healing. This process is non-invasive and offers less risk, since we're using your own blood as treatment. The resulting improvement in joint pain, sexual function, and hair restoration, and other issues can help improve your quality of life.
