While women are bothered with wrinkles, hair loss, and thin lips, men have got their own concerns. Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and penis enlargement. At least one out of these points troubles every second male on the Earth, if not every first. Is there any effective way to help with these sensitive questions? There exists a number of known methods, but their effectiveness leaves much to be desired. However, recently, a new revolutionary treatment appeared – Botox penis injections, and the doctors are quite optimistic about its efficacy in fighting the described above problems.
Botox Mechanism of Action
Whatever is the purpose of the injection, botulinum toxin (a purified poison, produced by a special kind of bacteria) always acts in the same way. It is also important to mention that there are no different types of Botox. It is always the same product. Whether you are having injections for wrinkles elimination, migraine, hyperhidrosis, crossed eyes, or erectile dysfunction, your therapist will use the same product but in different doses.
So, how does it work? When the toxin gets inside the skin, its molecules bind and block special proteins at the ends of the nerve membranes, which are responsible for receiving the signals from the brain. Once the nerves are blocked, the muscles in the neighboring areas become paralyzed to some extent (depending on the dosage of the drug injected) and motionless, relax, and the tension decreases. The effect is local and superficial, and it does not imply the complete immobility of the area where it was administered.
Are injections of Botox for the penis different? No. As I’ve mentioned before, the principal is always the same. However, every issue may require different dosages and number of injections.
Now, we will stop in more detail on every issue with sexual dysfunction.
This problem may concern the male population of different ages, but the older the man, the higher are the concerns. Problems with achieving and maintaining an erection can occur due to different factors: poor diet, sedentary way of life, some physiological peculiarities, etc. To understand how medical Botox for the penis can help to treat erectile dysfunction, we need to explain how the erection happens.
The thing is that penis consists of one spongy and two cavernous bodies, which fill in with blood during sexual arousal. Sciatic-cavernous muscles, which are placed at the base of the penis, contract, block the vessels, and prevent the outflow of blood. Men with erectile dysfunction experience the problem either with efficient blood flow or its maintenance. How can Botox for penis help? When injected into smooth muscle tissue within the erectile chamber, it helps to increase penile blood flow. Although it is an experimental method, many men, who had undergone the treatment, reported a considerable improvement.
The reasons may be different:
- hypersensitivity of the glans penis;
- inflammatory diseases;
- dysfunction of central serotonin receptors;
- lack of self-control experience;
- frequent sex intercourses or masturbation, etc.
Moreover, there may be various psychological factors. Whatever is the reason, it is a serious concern for many men all over the world. Let me clarify here that Botox for the penis is effective just in certain physiological cases. You should consult with the doctor to make sure it will work in your case or not.
So, how can it help?
Injections of botulinum toxin relax the bulbospongiosus muscle that is responsible for the contractions and ejaculation. Initially, this method was applied to rats, and it showed impressive results. The average duration increased from 4,4 minutes to 10 minutes in total, giving the scientists a reason to continue the study with human patients.
Does size matter? Whatever is the opinion of the female part, men would always want a bigger penis. Modern medicine offers various solutions on how to enlarge one’s genitals, but not all of them are safe enough. Botox for the penis may help to solve this issue. We are talking here about hyperactive penile retraction reflex due to which the organ appears smaller than it really is. Botox injections into the dartos muscle (responsible for the penile retraction) relax it and improve the flaccid penile length.
Is Botox a panacea from all diseases? Perhaps, no. But there are cases when botulinum toxin can improve the quality of someone’s life, return the self-confidence, and help to get rid of psycho complexes. Although this method for treating sexual problems is innovative and experimental, we believe that it has a bright future, solving serious issues quickly, effectively, and relatively painlessly.
