Frequently Asked Questions
What is Scrotox?
Scrotox is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting Botox into the scrotum to reduce sweating, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance the appearance of the scrotum. The outcome is an overall improved aesthetic appearance.
How does Scrotox work?

Is Scrotox safe?

How long does the procedure take?

Is there a recovery period or downtime required after the procedure?
There is no recovery period or downtime required after the procedure. However, it is advised to avoid any activity that may raise your body temperature for 24 hours, such as exercise, saunas or steam baths, jacuzzi and excessively long hot baths or showers as it may influence the duration of the result.
What results can I expect from Scrotox?
Results can last for several months and averages around 4 months, but this varies from person to person. As the muscle action gradually returns, so the scrotum will begin to contract back to its natural state. However, after subsequent Scrotox treatments results can last even longer as the muscles are being trained to relax.
