Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Give You an Advantage In Your Next Poker Tournament?

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

Poker players are always looking for ways to develop a better poker face to help them when bluffing opponents. A good poker face can mean the difference between winning big and losing your shirt in a high stakes poker game. If you have a “tell,” it may tip off others to your hand, giving them the advantage they need to topple your fortunes.

A doctor of aesthetic medicine in New York has recently gone “all-in” on a treatment that will help you eliminate your “tell” so that you can finally achieve the perfect poker face. He calls this treatment “Pokertox.”

In reality, Pokertox is just BOTOX® Cosmetic applied to an area of your face which potentially gives away your poker hand. This doctor is betting big that poker players across the country will ante up for his innovative new treatment.

“Some squint, or furrow their brows,” said the doctor. “We can inject BOTOX® Cosmetic appropriately so the other player doesn’t get the message that they’re angry, disappointed, or happy. What someone sees across the table is no movement.”

So far, most poker players have seemed a bit skeptical. After running his Pokertox promotion for more than a month, the doctor still hasn’t had any patients.

At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we have helped many Southern California residents improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using BOTOX® Cosmetic. While there aren’t many poker players who have come to us for help with their “tell,” we would certainly find it interesting to see if this procedure improved the fortunes of a few people at the poker table. It would add yet another use to this versatile procedure.
