Botox injections have many multifaceted applications. Most commonly, Botox addresses muscles. This includes overactive muscles, and those performing small localized movements causing wrinkles or other cosmetic problems. Additionally, Botox can help control nerve function. For example, when treating hyperhidrosis, the injections are shallower and target the nerves which induce sweating. In some cases, the exact mode in which Botox acts has yet to be fully known such as when it treats chronic pain. One of the newer Botox treatments—scrotox—falls into this category. The injectors at Seattle Plastic Surgery provide the best scrotox in Seattle and Tacoma offer.
Understanding Scrotum Botox
Scrotum Botox is not one specific treatment. It can address several concerns, including cosmetic and medical ones. The treatment was first performed as a way to reduce excessive sweating on and around the scrotal region. However, now it is also used to reduce wrinkles on the scrotum to create a smoother appearance. In some people, Botox may help lower the testicles slightly and make them appear bigger.
When treating the scrotum with Botox, the nerves underneath the skin are generally treated. However, the muscles affecting the hang and position of the scrotum—cremaster and dartos muscles—can sometimes be treated, especially if they are overactive. Overactive cremaster or dartos muscles can cause pain or the testicles to stay close to the body.
Therefore, each scrotum Botox treatment will look slightly different based on the patient’s specific goals for the procedure. Your injector can discuss what the ideal scrotox treatment looks like for you.
