Scrotal rejuvenation encompasses not only the functional quality but also the aesthetic appearance of the scrotum. It includes medical therapy and procedural interventions to improve scrotal conditions that require morphologic restoration and/or aesthetic alteration. Rejuvenation of the scrotum may be appropriate for aging-related and non-aging-related changes concerning the hair (alopecia and hypertrichosis), the morphology (laxity and wrinkles), and/or the vascularity (angiokeratoma) of the scrotum.

Scrotal Rejuvenation.

Philip R Cohen

Cureus 2018 Mar 13;10(3):e2316. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego.

Genital rejuvenation is applicable not only to women (vaginal rejuvenation) but also to men (scrotal rejuvenation). There is an increased awareness, reflected by the number of published medical papers, of vaginal rejuvenation; however, rejuvenation of the scrotum has not received similar attention in the medical literature. Scrotal rejuvenation includes treatment of hair-associated scrotal changes (alopecia and hypertrichosis), morphology-associated scrotal changes (wrinkling and laxity), and vascular-associated scrotal changes (angiokeratomas).
