Botox has been growing in popularity since it was introduced over 20 years ago and has spurred the development of neurotoxins like Dysport. These wrinkle-smoothing injectables are versatile. At Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL, we use them during a treatment called Sylk, also known as Scrotox. The sylk treatment is specifically designed to improve the appearance of the scrotum and alleviate some medical concerns that many men deal with on a regular basis.
They contain an active ingredient called a neurotoxin, a highly purified protein that works post-injection to relax the muscles in the treatment area. These injectables work on the muscular level, and their main ingredient blocks the communication between the nerve signal and the muscles to keep the muscles relaxed, therefore delivering wrinkle-smoothing results and alleviating specific symptoms.
Then we’ll give you more information about what kind of results you can expect after beginning the treatment process, when you can expect them, and how often you should schedule follow-up treatments to ensure consistent and long-lasting results. And then, once we confirm that the sylk treatment is right for you, we can move forward and schedule your injection appointment.
Most people who schedule Botox or Dysport to smooth wrinkles on their face don’t require a topical numbing solution to comfortably endure the treatment. The needle is thin and fine, and the injections are strategic and quick. However, due to the sensitive nature of the scrotum, scrotox is best administered in combination with a topical numbing solution to ensure patient comfort throughout the treatment.
While this may seem like a complicated process, our injectors know how to administer scrotox to meet the needs of patients in the quickest and most comfortable treatment session. Just like Botox and Dysport injections only take a few minutes to complete, so too is this injection process quick and virtually painless. From start to finish, you can expect the injection process to take less than 20 minutes. Them, you’ll be free to go about your day.
After your appointment is complete, your injector will give you some detailed instructions about caring for the injection sites. Just like these wrinkle-smoothing injectables require some aftercare instructions when administered to the face, so too will the sylk treatment process require that you follow some post-treatment instructions.
Avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours after your injection and anything that will increase your body temperature. You should also avoid anti-inflammatory medications and alcohol consumption for those first 24 hours as well. Your injector will give you detailed instructions to ensure comfort and optimal results.
Those who suffer from certain conditions regarding the scrotum may find relief and resolution with this treatment thanks to the way that Botox and Dysport can effectively relax the muscles in the areas to accomplish specific goals.
Additionally, those who have had an allergic reaction or are sensitive to Botox or Dysport ingredients will not qualify for treatment. The initial consultation is the best way to determine if sylk is right for you. This wrinkle-smoothing, scrotum-enhancing treatment is a good option for many men, but not everyone.
