Get ready for a new trend in facial plastic surgery: pokertox. With the rise in popularity of both poker and Botox, it seems like a natural progression. As a facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte who specializes in injectable treatments like Botox, I’d like to share the idea behind pokertox.
What Is Pokertox?
Coined by a cosmetic surgeon, Pokertox involves a regimen of Botox with the aim to help a poker player manage their poker face. A poker face is the ability to hide any unconscious signs about a poker players hand that may give his fellow players clues to if he has a good or bad hand. If you’ve ever participated in poker, it’s easy to realize how important it is to have a good “poker face”.
Take this, for example. Let’s say you’re playing a game of cards, and you’re dealt a great hand. Without even realizing it, you’ve probably moved or twitched small areas arounds your eyes. These tiny movements can be identified by other players at the table and may give insight on the player’s hand and ultimately be the difference of winning and losing thousands of dollars. Poker players that have typical facial movements that might give away their poker face are turning to Botox. Botox is injected into specific muscles in the face to weaken or paralyze them. Poker players are now using Botox to help create their poker face and we get the term, pokertox.
Some players believe pokertox can give them a slight advantage while others disagree and believe that poker relies heavily on the betting trends of opponents, skill, and experience. I personally believe in a competitive game of poker where thousands of dollars are at stake, if Botox can help you win by preventing a movement in your face that can give away your hand, then it could be a great option.
