The phimotic ring is the part of the phimotic tissue with inelastic cells which forms around the foreskin after an infection, particularly in cases of acquired phimosis.
Phimosis can have two different origins: congenital and acquired.
The former is present at a young age, when the foreskin tends not to grow, as the penis and does not allow normal exposure of the glans. In congenital phimosis, no actual phimotic ring is present, and is not clearly visible as it is in cases of acquired phimosis.
At the root of acquired phimosis are causes that occur after normal pubertal development. They are mostly causes that are related to infections of the glans or foreskin, which heal, sometimes leaving small scars. Scars that can degenerate until a tight phimosis forms.
The presence of a phimotic ring makes it impossible to slide the foreskin onto the glans and this impediment makes correct penile hygiene difficult, makes an erection painful and prevents normal sexual activity. In this case you need a tight foreskin stretcher.
Formation of the phimotic ring
As already mentioned, in adulthood, most of the time we witness a phimosis emerging as a consequence of an infection that’s been treated incorrectly or too late. After the infection, a ring of even more inelastic cells begins to form on the foreskin, which over time can “stiffen” to create an actual loop around the glans. In the worst cases the glans is strangulated so badly that it requires an emergency intervention (paraphimosis).
Particularly at the start, when the phimosis has not yet tightened, the sufferer tends to intervene on their own, and tries to force the foreskin, perhaps by using phimosis cream, but actually obtains the opposite effect. Sadly, forcing the phimotic ring creates small tears that can become infected and render the phimotic tissue even harder.
The use of self-administered and homemade therapies (or homemade tight foreskin stretcher) that merely risk making the situation worse should be avoided completely. By intervening promptly, the phimotic tissue growth process can be blocked, and complete regression of the phimotic ring can be observed. It is always advisable to consult a doctor and assess the actions that could be taken to solve the problem.
How to treat phimotic tissue: tight foreskin stretcher
In cases of acquired phimosis doctors recommend surgery, a well-established practice that is performed in a day hospital. This intervention involves surgical removal of the foreskin or the individual parts involving the phimotic tissue, via a complete or partial circumcision.
The practice of circumcision certainly eliminates the problem of phimosis, but it does not take into account the psychological tension it creates in a patient, the loss of erotic sensations and the protective action of the glans. Putting your penis “under the knife” is never easy, and circumcision should only be performed in emergencies, where it is completely unavoidable.
Phimostop was created to provide an alternative to phimosis surgery. The medical device was created by applying the known ability of the body to adapt itself also permanently as a result of constriction constraints, in this case for the foreskin. It is a phimotic ring stretcher.
By using a series of specially designed elements, called tuboids, Phimostop intervenes directly on the phimotic ring. The action of the medical device is focused on the inelastic cells of the phimotic tissue and, thanks to a continuous and mild dilatation process, the inelastic cells thin out and give rise to new elastic cells.
The creation of new elastic cells soon allows the prepuce to return to glide freely over the glans without any hindrance or restriction, just like it was before the onset of phimosis.
Phimostop is composed of 7 tubes and 6 intermediate rings, which have been specially designed to follow the anatomy of the glans, which allow a progressive dilating action on the phimotic ring. The tuboids are easy to wear, and thanks to a specially designed and patented fastening system, can be kept on throughout the day, leaving the patient free to take part in any activity.
Phimostop is the only medical device for phimosis treatment that has been validated by the Italian Health Ministry , and was awarded the Gold Medal at the Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions.
