What Is Botox® for Penis Shrinkage?
Hyperactive Retraction Reflex, or penis shrinkage, is the shrinking or retraction of the penis due to external circumstances. Such retraction usually occurs when temperatures hit a low, or in rare cases when a man withdraws sexually. The muscles at the base of the penis are responsible for this experience.
How Botox® for Hyperactive Retraction Reflex Works
Botox® stops the muscle at the base of the penis from contracting, which stops the shrinking effect. The process provides you the appearance of a larger flaccid penis. A procedure like this works best if you want to be a “shower” more than a “grower.” However, it is important to note that this treatment can modify the appearance of the penis only in the flaccid state. What’s more, this solution is temporary—lasting up to six months—so follow-up treatments may be necessary.
Additional Benefits of Botox® for Hyperactive Retraction Reflex
Premature ejaculation is the second biggest complaint men have in the bedroom. There are sprays, exercises, and mantras to help but, in this case, Botox® can provide relief. Injecting Botox® into the base of the penis relaxes the muscle that contracts during intercourse and especially at orgasm. Calming this muscle down allows your body and mind the opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of sex more fully before finally ejaculating.
It is important to note that this benefit of Botox® is in the clinical stages. What exact side effects may exist and how much Botox® is needed will be determined by clinicians later this year. Whether follow-up treatment will be needed has yet to be determined.
Botox® for Hyperactive Retraction Reflex—The Side Effects
Botox® is safe. Still, with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a chance of infection, redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. Due to the nature of this procedure, additional side effects may be considered. See our Botox® page for more information.
