While penis patches have been available in the male enhancement market, many questions about their efficacy, use and ingredients are on the minds of interested individuals. Here are a few of the frequently asked questions and their answers about penis patches.
How Do These Patches Work?
Penis patches work in the same manner as transdermal patches, such as patches used in the delivery of medications, nicotine and contraceptives.
These patches are placed on the skin, allowed to firmly adhere to it, and then left in place for a specific period from 24-72 hours depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. These products contain beneficial ingredients with substances that can then be administered via the skin in controlled doses.
When the patch with the medicated side touches the skin, its substances are then absorbed through the skin’s layers and into the bloodstream for direct absorption. The substances can be released via a reservoir or melted via body heat depending on the design.
How Do You Use The Patches?
One of the most notable benefits of using penis patches for male enhancement purposes is the ease of application. Just peel away the liner, which protects the ingredients from evaporating into thin air, place the medicated side on the skin, and press firmly to achieve a flat, even and smooth application.
A penis patch is typically applied on a specific part of the body, even near the penis, such as on the abdomen or hip. It should not be placed on a sensitive part of the body especially where there are cuts, scrapes and bruises.
What Are The Ingredients?
The ingredients in penis patches are typically chosen for their proven efficacy in two ways, namely:
- Relaxation of the smooth muscles within the penis
- Stimulation of blood flow into the penis specifically within the two chambers known as the corpora cavernosa.
It must be emphasized that these two effects of the ingredients contribute to the achievement of better erections. In an erection, the smooth muscles of the penis must be as relaxed as possible to allow more blood flow into the chambers – the more relaxed the smooth muscles, the more blood flow into the chambers, the harder the erection will be.
While each brand of penis patch has its own range of ingredients, the most common are:
- Ginseng, for boosting erectile function, sex drive, and copulatory performance
- Fo Ti, for combating the age-related decline in sexual function including poor erection quality and low libido
- Gotu kola, for increasing the hardness of erection and sexual stamina by enhancing blood flow, relieving high blood pressure, and neutralizing toxins in the blood
- Saw palmetto, for stimulating sexual energy and appetite (i.e., a strong aphrodisiac)
- Damina root, for use as a sexual stimulant
- Menthol, for aiding the transmission of the ingredients through the skin
What Are The Benefits Of The Patches?
Penis patches are becoming increasingly popular because of their wide range of benefits.
- Safe ingredients
The best penis patches only use the safest ingredients, such as herbal extracts, which cannot be said of many male enhancement supplements. These products are also safer than many penis pumps and traction devices, more so than penis enlargement surgery.
- Effective delivery
Transdermal patches are popular in the medical community because of their efficacy in delivering beneficial substances into the body. This is because the substances pass through the skin and into the bloodstream largely in their original form. In contrast, delivery via oral intake, as is the case with dietary supplements, will alter the substances’ form once in contact with the various matter (e.g., saliva, acids, bacteria) in the digestive system.
- Effective results
The results will vary between individuals but most should see positive results in the quality and quantity of their erections within 3-4 weeks of regular and proper use.
- Controlled doses
Since the patches provide for gradual and specific doses of the medication, there is little to no risk for either misusing or abusing (overdoses) of the product.
- Discreet use
The penis patches usually have small sizes (e.g., 1.25×1.25 inches) and paper-thin dimensions, thus, allowing users to wear them underneath clothes without anybody else being the wiser about it.
What Can Be Done To Improve On The Results?
Penis patches are not the miracle bullet for longer penises and harder erections.
Users will have better results when the regular and proper use of penis patches are coupled with:
- a healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables and lean meats
- moderate physical activity and penis exercises like jelqing, stretching, and Kegels
- and sensible lifestyle habits, such as limiting alcohol consumption, stopping smoking cigarettes, and managing stress, among others
