What is the procedure called Scrotox?
“Scrotox” is a colloquial term that combines “scrotum” and “Botox.” It refers to the cosmetic procedure where Botox (botulinum toxin) is injected into the scrotum. The primary reasons some men seek this treatment are:
- Cosmetic Appearance: Just as Botox can smooth wrinkles on the face, Scrotox can make the scrotum appear smoother and less wrinkled.
- Relief from Sweating: Botox can be used to treat excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, in various parts of the body. Some men opt for Scrotox to reduce sweating in the genital region.
- Perceived Increase in Size: The relaxation of the muscles in the scrotum can lead to a temporary “enlarged” appearance, as the testicles might hang lower.
It’s essential to note that any elective procedure, especially one involving injections in such a sensitive area, comes with risks. These can range from infection, allergic reactions, or unintended effects on the appearance or function of the scrotum. It’s crucial for individuals considering Scrotox to consult with Dr. Kerschner at Victory Wellness who has performed this procedure.
