Men with erectile dysfunction might benefit from Botox injections to the penis, according to a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine commentary.
The therapy is still experimental, but could be worth exploring further, the authors noted.
Botox weakens targeted muscles and nerves and is sometimes used for cosmetic procedures, overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and chronic migraine. It's possible that Botox could help relax smooth muscle tissue in the penis, allowing for greater blood flow.
Botox "represents a promising avenue for future experimental and clinical research for the treatment of ED,” the authors wrote. However, more study is needed on the efficacy and safety of the approach. Experts warn that Botox should be used only in clinical trials with professional supervision for now.
