Can Stem Cells Increase Penis Size?

Although there is no factual link between a man's penis size and his sexual prowess, millions of men (and women) continue to conflate the two. It's no surprise, then, that many men are obsessed with their penis size, sometimes going to extreme lengths that could imperil their penis health in order to add some extra length or girth to their member. Many have gotten rich by playing on the vanity and insecurity of men who want a bigger penis, creating products that by and large do not live up to their promise of increasing the size of a guy's member. But several news stories recently talked about a new process one man has tried - using stem cells to enhance his penis size.

About stem cells

What exactly are stem cells? They are early-stage biological cells which can form other, more specific cells. So think of them as being like a lump of clay. When a sculptor starts out, he has this clay which could become just about anything. He can mold it into a dog, a human head, a bench - whatever he wants. Similarly, a stem cell has the potential to turn into any of a variety of other cells.

There are two kind of stem cells, embryonic and adult. Adult stem cells have the potential to create a whole organ from just a few cells because of their replication ability.

Adult stem cells are most easily obtained from three places: the bone marrow, body fat and blood. A scientist gets from bone marrow by drilling into the bone; from fat tissue by way of liposuction; and from blood by extracting the blood and then separating out the stem cells.

Penis size

  • So what kind of connection could stem cells have with penis size? Well, there already have been some small studies that look at erectile dysfunction. One study took stem cells from body fat and injected them into the penises of men suffering from impotence. All 21 of the study subjects reported erectile improvement, some of them to the degree that they could achieve erections without other medical assistance.
  • Recently, an individual - at his own insistence, not due to a doctor or scientist - had his penis injected with stem cells to see if it would affect his penis size. The theory seems to be that because recreate themselves so well and so quickly, they would therefore increase his penis size.
  • However, there has been nothing in previous studies to indicate that a mere injection could have this kind of focused effect. The subject claims that he indeed is bigger now - but he also admits he hasn't taken a ruler and actually officially measured himself. (If he were part of an official study, pre- and post-treatment measurements would be obtained.)
  • More importantly, this man underwent an entirely experimental procedure that has no FDA approval and was not set up with safety protocols in place. (Fortunately, he seems to be doing fine.)
  • It is possible that scientists will create and conduct evidence-based clinical trials to look at the viability of therapy to enhance penis size. But for the present, it is not an accepted procedure.
  • Penis size, whether stem cell-enhanced or not, is not as important as the health of the organ. More men need to focus on applying a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) regularly. It's best to look at the ingredients carefully and to select one that contains powerful moisturizing ingredients, such as Shea butter and vitamin E. Also, a crème with vitamin A is recommended, as this vitamin has anti-bacterial properties that help fight persistent penis odor.

Penis Health Primer: Too Tired for Sex?

Penis Health Primer: Too Tired for Sex?

When a man is in the mood to get it on, sometimes his body just doesn't agree. That's often the case when a man really wants to enjoy a little sexual pleasure but he's just too tired to bother. From ignoring the need to masturbate to telling a loving partner, "Not tonight, honey," a guy might find himself saying no to sex over and over again. If that's the case, there is something going on - and he needs to figure out what it is, not just for his own peace of mind (and his partner's!), but for the sake of his good penis care. After all, regular orgasms are necessary to "exercise" the organ and keep it in tip-top shape.

Too tired for sex?

Let's be honest: Sex is one of the most enjoyable things in life, and many a man thinks about it at least every day, if not multiple times each day. So it must be something serious to make him too tired for sex, right? Here are some of the issues that might lead to being too tired and other penis problems that are associated with it.

- Not enough sleep. When a man doesn't get enough sleep, it has a detrimental effect to every system of the body, including his penis health. But besides the simple fatigue that comes from not getting enough sleep, the lack of shut-eye can also lead to significantly less testosterone in the body, which in turn makes a man even more tired. It also affects his levels of desire in an adverse way.

- Insurmountable stress. When a guy faces burnout, lots of things happen. A man has more difficulty making decisions, insomnia and fatigue, anger and distress, a suppressed immune system and no desire for sexual activity - and that's all just for starters. Stress is the number one cause of many problems for men, but when it comes to sexual function, it's a true game-changer.

- Relationship issues. When a man has sudden penis problems, it might mean that he's dealing with something psychological. If a guy is also dealing with serious fatigue - the kind that means he would rather go to sleep than talk to his partner - the two might be related. Sometimes relationship issues can lead to a loss of libido that is so extreme it makes a man subconsciously avoid intimacy with that person.

- Problems with nutrition. A guy who isn't eating enough, or isn't eating the right foods, can suffer from serious fatigue that makes him too tired to engage in many things, including sex. This can also be the case if a man is getting plenty to eat but it's all the wrong things, such as the guy who lives on fast food and never touches a fresh veggie. Nutrition problems should be evaluated by a physician.

- Underlying medical conditions. Some men might have an underlying medical problem that translates into penis problems. For instance, a guy with diabetes might be tired all the time because his blood sugar is too high, which means his cells don't get the energy they need. Or a guy might suffer from serious depression, and as a result, he feels the bone-deep fatigue that makes him want to stay in bed all day - but not do anything in that bed but sleep. Only time spent at the doctor's office can lead to an investigation and diagnosis of these kind of problems.

Whether a man is really tired or full of energy, he should always strive to protect his penis health by engaging in excellent penis care. He can do this by reaching for a powerful penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A good crème will contain multiple vitamins and nutrients, including amino acids for overall health, vitamin E and Shea butter for softness, and a plethora of vitamins to maintain tip-top health for the penis.

Fractional Laser Treatment - How Does It Work?

Fractional Laser Treatment - How Does It Work?

Fractional laser or Fraxel as it is commonly known in cosmetic surgery terms, is a non-invasive technique to treat various skin problems. A beam of laser is divided into thousands of treatment zones, which are focused on a particular spot on the skin, giving it the name fractional laser.

Conventionally, ablative laser works on the epidermis while non-ablative laser works on the collagen or the dermis layer. Fractional laser is unique in that it works on both these layers. Therefore, in problems involving both these layers, Fraxel works extremely well.

  1. Sun damage
  2. Extensive skin pigmentation
  3. Wrinkles
  4. Stretch marks
  5. Melasma

How does it work?

The skin has two layers – epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the protective layer and has the melanin-producing melanocytes, which gives the skin, its color. The dermis has collagen and elastic fibers, which gives it skin the elasticity. With age, the skin loses its elasticity and becomes pale, as the collagen degenerates. Less of new collagen is formed, and so aged appearance including sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, etc. appear.

What Fraxel does is produce 1000s of columns of laser which act on both the dermis and the epidermis and improve collagen formation and removing old cells. The surrounding skin remains intact, and only the area of focus is treated.

What to expect?

  1. Before the procedure, the doctor will validate if you are a candidate for the procedure.
  2. Photos will be taken of the area and in people with darker complexion, bleaching or chemical peel may be used
  3. With face cleaned with soap and water, an anesthetic cream is applied to the skin.
  4. The laser beam is then applied, usually about 30 minutes.
  5. The procedure could be painful if the laser beam is strong which makes the use of anesthetic essential
  6. A cooling device is applied at the end of the procedure, and the area is then washed off
  7. One may experience redness, swelling, and tenderness for about a week
  8. New skin will develop in about a week’s time
  9. Skin peeling can happen in some people, which can be easily removed off without pain
  10. Adequate use of moisturizer and sunscreen is advised
  11. Clothing should be protective, include sunglasses, wide hat, and scarf
  12. Most people require a repeat of 3 to 4 sessions to complete the treatment, with a gap of a month usually.
  13. Unlike with other skin treatments, the effect from Fraxel takes time. It may take up to 3 to 4 months for the complete effect to show, as it involves complete collagen formation.

Advice from a doctor is must, so you can plan for your Fraxel treatment well.
