When the stress of office life gets to be too much, NYC men aren’t turning to the bottle — they’re turning to Botox.
“When men are in business meetings, they normally sweat profusely from their scalps, and it makes them look insecure,” celebrity dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler tells The Post. So Wexler injects Botox, which is usually used to fight wrinkles, into clients’ sweat glands to halt perspiration.
“This gives them more self-esteem, and their presence is more secure,” says Wexler, who says the jabs cost between $750 and $2,500 per treatment.
The Midtown East doctor has been injecting guys’ heads for more than 10 years, but Wexler says that recently business has been booming.
“More people ask for it once they know it’s available,” she says.
It’s not just nervous executives turning to Botox for uses beyond wrinkles. A large portion of Wexler’s clients are female fitness enthusiasts who are getting injections to prevent their sleek blowouts from getting ruined with icky workout sweat. Who knew Botox was so versatile?
