S.T.I.M. Therapy for the Penis (STIM™ Therapy)
Superconcentrated Thrombocyte Injections for Men
STIM™ therapy was coined by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Tim Neavin, to describe the use platelet rich plasma and negative pressure for male enhancement. It consists of two components:
- STIM™ shots or injections of PRP into the penis
- Negative pressure therapy with “penis pump” to expand the penis
Although every man’s experience from STIM therapy varies, the purpose of STIM therapy is to enhance sensation in the penis, improve ability to achieve erection, and potentially add volume to the penis in both length and circumference by promoting the growth of new tissue.
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is the platelet (thrombocyte) component of blood that has been concentrated. Because it is from your own body, it poses no risk for allergic reaction. PRP is a natural and safe solution.
Platelets are chemical signals which stimulate cell repair, proliferation and differentiation for tissue regeneration. PRP therapy has been used in various fields of medicine relying on its healing capacity to facilitate the repair of various tissues. Orthopaedic, cardiovascular, ENT, wound healing, and plastic surgeons have been utilizing the potent growth factors in PRP for years. It has recently gained momentum because technology has readily afforded physicians the capacity to prepare PRP quite easily and efficiently in the office.
The procedure starts with the application of topical anesthesia to the area just above where the penis meets the pubic area and along the shaft of the penis.
Injections of lidocaine are then introduced to the pubic area to create a field block to reduce sensitivity to the penis.
The tube is then spun at an appropriate speed and duration to concentrate the platelets without inciting injury. If the tube is spun too fast or too long, the platelets, which are fragile, can fracture causing a premature release of factors.
The concentrated platelets, PRP, is then transferred into a syringe for injections into the marked areas of the penis.
With the aid of negative pressure, the growth factors and cytokines released from the platelets can disperse into the corpus cavernosum more evenly.
Possible benefits from STIM therapy include:
Improved sensation of the penis
Improved ability to achieve erection of the penis
Possible straightening of the penis (improved appearance)
Enlargement of the penis
Many men report improvements within days after the procedure. To amplify the response, STIM therapy can be performed every 60 to 90 days or until desired results are achieved.
