HangTox & ShowTox™
HangTox (Scrotum Botox)
What Is It For?
HangTox is scrotum BOTOX. The treatment is aimed at making the scrotum hang lower at baseline. The same look that is often presented when the patient is warm. HangTox also helps with scrotum sweating.
How Does It Work?
HangTox (scrotum Botox) allows the cremaster muscle of the scrotum to relax. The cremaster muscle is responsible for the reflex of pulling the balls closer to the body when the individual is cold or experiencing anxiety, etc. Some people’s cremaster muscle is naturally more hyperflexed and they always feel like their balls are very tight against their body, while others can have the opposite which is a more relaxed cremaster muscle, this allows their balls to hang lower at baseline. With HangTox the scrotum appears bigger or more filled out, the testicles hang more loosely or lower, and some patients report that sex is more pleasurable.
ShowTox™ (Scrotum Botox)
What's It For?
ShowTox™ is penile Botox. The treatment is aimed at making the penis look larger when flaccid (therefore making you more of a shower than a grower).
How Does It Work?
ShowTox™ (penile Botox) allows the corpus cavernosum (erectile tissues) of the penis to relax, thus they are slightly always filled with more blood. This allows the penis to hang lower when flaccid and appear semi-erect without actually having an erection. This procedure may also allow for harder and firmer erections, since the corpus cavernosum is able to relax further and fully engorge.
