Bocox® is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting Botox into the corpus cavernosum of the penis. Botox injections can relax the corpus cavernosum muscles, allowing the penis to fill with blood more effectively. Bocox is considered an alternative to The P-Shot.
Are you having trouble with erections? Is it affecting your self-esteem? Is erectile dysfunction (ED) causing difficulties in your personal relationship?
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can have many causes. Because some of these causes can be due to certain health conditions like heart disease or diabetes, it’s important you see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.
It might also be necessary to have your medications evaluated, as they can also contribute to erectile dysfunction. It might also be necessary to make lifestyle changes such as your diet and exercise.
Stress is also a contributing factor to ED. You might find you benefit from meditation or yoga. Some types of therapy might also help.
An inability to get or maintain an erection on occasion is perfectly normal for most men. It’s when it becomes an ongoing issue that you should see your doctor for ED treatment. Symptoms of erectile dysfunction include trouble getting an erection, difficulty maintaining one, and a decrease in libido.
How Does Bocox® Help?
Bocox blocks nerve signals, allowing the smooth muscle that controls penile blood flow to relax. This process allows more blood flow to the area for more sustainable erections.
Do Bocox Injections Hurt?
This is a common concern. The thought of needles in your penis isn’t exactly pleasant! The truth is the needles are small, and the treatment is fast. You’ll hardly have time to feel anything, and you needn’t worry.
Your injector will do everything possible to make sure you’re comfortable. Before Bocox, a numbing cream will be applied to minimize any discomfort. The topical anesthetic takes up to 30 minutes to take effect, after which you’ll be injected.
Am I a Good Candidate for Bocox?
You should schedule a consultation with your provider to make sure it’s safe for you to receive Bocox, or Botox for penis. In general, as long as you are in good health, you’re likely a great candidate.
Bocox is often recommended to patients who have not had success with other sexual dysfunction treatments like oral medications or other injectables. If you’ve had recent surgery for erectile dysfunction, it’s important to let your doctor know before getting Bocox.
This treatment might not be suitable for you if you’ve had reactions to anesthesia, cosmetic injectables, or certain medications.
Should I Be Concerned About Bocox Side Effects?
As with any injectable, some side effects are to be expected. After receiving Bocox injections, it is possible to experience some swelling, redness, soreness, and tiny bumps at the injection sites. You might also feel fatigued or experience a headache. All of these side effects are normal, minor, and go away rather quickly on their own.
How Soon are Results Experienced After Getting Bocox?
After getting Bocox injections, most men notice a significant change in their ability to achieve and maintain erections in three to four weeks.
How Long Do Bocox Results Last?
Most patients enjoy the benefits of Bocox for three to four months. In some cases, it can last a bit longer. You need to repeat the treatment as scheduled by your doctor to maintain your results.
Is Bocox for Erectile Dysfunction Safe?
Yes, Botox is considered safe and was approved by the FDA for aesthetic purposes over two decades ago. It is true Botox contains the same toxin that causes food poisoning, but Botox for sexual dysfunction is delivered in very small, safe doses.
