NEW YORK, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A New York doctor said his "Pokertox" service consists of Botox treatments for card players who need help keeping their faces still during games.

Dr. Jack Berdy, a doctor of aesthetic medicine on Manhattan's East Side, said his "Pokertox" treatments are designed to "allow people to gain a poker face" using the treatments meant to reduce wrinkles and other facial lines, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

"Very few people can maintain a real poker face," Berdy said. "They have some 'tells,' some expression that gives away that they have a good hand or a bad hand."

"We can inject Botox appropriately" to mask the "tells," Berdy said.

The doctor said his "Pokertox" treatments cost an average $600 to $800 and the benefits last for about three to four months.
