Earlier we’ve learned what is a penile traction device, and the next question if you’re most like people who are investigating the method would be, is the device safe to use? Is it effective? And, how long would the results become apparent?
The whole concept of using a traction device, or popularly known as penis extenders in the penile enlargement arena is to achieve positive results, which is in this case, to correct penile curvature. Now, to the first question whether it is safe to use? The answer is yes, but it always depends whether the user used it appropriately. This is why reading the user’s guide of the device is vital, or if your urologist is having a demonstration on how to use it, it’s very important to pay attention and learn as much as possible, then ask questions if there are things unclear.
One of the first documented penile traction devices is FastSize, but again regretfully, this traction device is not available anymore for the public, but there are excellent options out there like SizeGenetics, which has been known to work for both penile curvature correction and size enhancement purposes.
Backed By Clinical Trials
When it comes to clinical trials, traction devices have been tested to have good results with Peyronie’s disease especially when combined with other treatments like oral and injection medications.
Many of the recent studies on the effectiveness of traction devices found it can prevent scar progression, as well as helpful in restoring penile length and girth, reducing the degree of curvature and most importantly, improve sexual function. One study found that when a traction device is used at least 3 hours day, it can provide a slight, but meaningful improvement in penile stretched length.
Another study published back in 2015 found that penis extender device is considered a minimally invasive solution that is safe, and provides satisfactory benefits and satisfaction of the patient. In a non-randomized controlled trial, researchers found the use of penile traction therapy (PTT) as an effective treatment for an acute phase of Peyronie’s disease when it comes to decreasing the degree of penile curvature, decreasing pain, and again just as the previous studies mentioned, it helps improve overall sexual function.
Note that, you have plenty of options when it comes to penile traction devices and if you consult your doctor about the condition, he or she may consider other treatment methods that can be used side-by-side with the traction device. Many of the traction device options are mentioned in this article, and although not mentioned, one of the most comprehensive penile traction system today is X4 Labs, and it has financing options, therefore, cost is not an issue if you’re willing to own and use a quality traction device.
How Long Will Take To Have An Apparent Results?
According to a researcher of the former traction device company, FastSize, it will take between 3 to 6 months for a traction therapy to take effect. Although, the longer and consistent it is used, the better the results.
Therefore, don’t rush and expect results within just a week of using the traction device. It takes time, and it’s important to take it low and slowly during the beginning. In addition, it’s also vital to find some good combination of other methods along with the traction device.
Keep in mind, when pain occurs, stop using the device and take some time to figure out why it happens. And, if pain persists, consult your urologist to make sure everything is in order and you’re on the right track. Lastly, read the manual that comes with the device and double-check the correct usage of the device.
