What is Penile Retraction?
Penile retraction, also known as phimosis, is a condition where the foreskin of the penis is too tight and cannot be retracted over the glans. It can lead to discomfort during sex, difficulty with hygiene, and even pain or inflammation. While there are various treatments available for phimosis, in recent years, Botox and PRP have emerged as the best potential solutions. This is a common condition that affects males of all ages. In some cases, it may be present at birth, while in others, it can develop over time due to scarring, infections, or other factors.
What are the Causes of Penile Retraction?
The causes of penile retraction can vary. Some of the most common causes include:
- Tight Foreskin: A tight foreskin that does not allow for proper retraction is the most common cause of phimosis.
- Scarring: Scarring from previous injuries or surgeries can lead to penile retraction.
- Infections: Infections such as balanitis, which is an inflammation of the glans, can cause phimosis.
- Age: As men age, the skin of the penis may become less elastic, which can lead to phimosis.
What Treatments are Available for Penile Retraction?
There has been recent progression in the medical space to better treat conditions such as penile retraction in a comfortable manner with the best results possible. At Infinity MedSpa, we utilize both revolutionary Botox, and the natural healing power of PRP (platelet rich plasma) to reverse the effects of phimosis, and restore sexual performance and physical comfort.
Botox Treatment for Penile Retraction
Botox, which is short for botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that is commonly used to treat wrinkles, muscle spasms, and other medical conditions. In recent years, it has also been used to treat phimosis.
Botox works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is responsible for muscle contractions. In the case of phimosis, injecting Botox into the muscles of the foreskin can relax them, making it easier for the foreskin to retract.
How do Treatments Using Botox Work?
An initial consultation is always required prior to treatment in order to develop the best treatment plan for you and your specific needs. Penile retraction procedures utilizing Botox are performed on an outpatient basis and take about 30 minutes. During the process, a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles of the foreskin. The Botox formulation then works to bind to the muscles and relax them – reversing the inverted appearance. Patients can usually resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Optimal results are typically achieved within 1-2 weeks following Botox treatments.
PRP Treatment for Penile Retraction
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a therapy that involves injecting a concentrated solution of your body’s own restorative platelets into the affected area. Platelets are cells in the blood that are responsible for healing the natural healing process. They also contain growth factors that can promote tissue regeneration and repair.
In the case of phimosis, PRP can be injected into the skin of the foreskin to promote healing and regeneration of the tissue. This can help to reduce inflammation and scarring, making it easier to retract the foreskin and promote natural functionality and performance.
How do Treatments Using PRP Work?
PRP treatments are performed by first collecting a small amount of the patient’s own blood. It is then placed in a centrifuge where it is rapidly spun to separate the red blood cells from the rejuvenative white blood cells. The healing platelet rich plasma is then injected into the skin of the foreskin to activate the natural healing and restorative process. Like Botox treatments, PRP procedures are quick, with no-to-minimal downtime. You can expect to see results in the appearance and functionality of penile retraction treatments using PRP within a few weeks.
