Are you considering Scrotox and wondering how long the results last? At Dr SW Clinics, we understand that making an informed decision about any treatment is crucial.

This article will guide you through everything you need to know about Scrotox, from the procedure itself to the duration of its effects. Let’s dive into the details of this innovative treatment and how it can benefit you.

What is Scrotox?

Definition and Origins of Scrotox

Scrotox is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting Botox into the scrotum to reduce wrinkles and improve aesthetics.

The name combines ‘scrotum’ and ‘Botox’, highlighting its purpose and method. Originating from cosmetic treatments designed to smooth facial wrinkles, Scrotox offers similar benefits for male genitalia.

How Scrotox Works

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is injected into the scrotal skin to relax the muscles and smooth out wrinkles.

This temporary paralysis of the muscles prevents them from contracting, leading to a smoother appearance.

Additionally, it can reduce sweating and make the testicles hang lower, creating an impression of increased size.

Benefits of Scrotox

Aesthetic Improvements

Scrotox helps men achieve a smoother, less wrinkled scrotum, which many find boosts their confidence and self-esteem. The reduction in wrinkles can also make the scrotum appear more youthful.

Functional Benefits

Beyond aesthetics, Scrotox can enhance sexual comfort and pleasure. The reduced muscle activity can lead to less sweating, lowering the risk of discomfort and infections like jock itch.

The Scrotox Procedure

Consultation and Preparation

Before undergoing Scrotox, a consultation with a specialist at Dr SW Clinics is essential.

This session includes a medical history review, a discussion about the desired outcomes, and an examination of the scrotum to ensure suitability for the treatment.

The Treatment Process

Application of Anaesthetic

To ensure comfort, a topical numbing cream is applied to the scrotal area before the injections. This step minimises any discomfort during the procedure.

Injection Procedure

Once the area is numb, small injections of Botox are administered into the scrotal skin. The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes, making it a quick and convenient treatment option.

How Long Does Scrotox Last?

Duration of Results

The effects of Scrotox generally last between 4 to 6 months.

This duration can vary based on individual factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific areas treated. After this period, the wrinkles and muscle activity will gradually return to their pre-treatment state.

Factors Influencing Longevity

Several factors can influence how long Scrotox lasts. These include the amount of Botox used, the patient’s muscle activity, and how the body metabolises the toxin. Regular maintenance treatments can help prolong the results.


Aftercare and Recovery

Immediate Aftercare

Following the procedure, it’s normal to experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness at the injection sites. These symptoms usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Applying a cold compress can help alleviate discomfort.

Long-Term Care Tips

To maintain the results of Scrotox, follow your specialist’s aftercare advice. Avoid strenuous activities and excessive heat for a few days post-treatment. Staying hydrated and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also contribute to longer-lasting results.

Potential Side Effects and Risks

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Scrotox include temporary redness, swelling, and tenderness at the injection sites. These are typically mild and resolve on their own.
Rare Complications

While rare, some complications can occur, such as infection or an allergic reaction to the Botox. It’s important to choose a reputable clinic like Dr SW Clinics to minimise these risks.

The Cost of Scrotox

Typical Pricing

The cost of Scrotox at Dr SW Clinics starts from £1450.

This price includes the consultation and the treatment itself. The exact cost can vary depending on the individual case and the amount of Botox required.

Factors Affecting Cost

Factors that can influence the cost of Scrotox include the extent of treatment needed and any additional procedures that may be recommended to achieve the desired results.
