It’s that time of year when we begin to think about our legs again. Remember them? Those perfect pins that have been hiding all year round.
The arrival of summer brings with it relaxed days spent lounging bare-legged soaking up the sun. But for some getting the perfect beach body in time for summer isn’t just about having a toned torso and rippling biceps – it’s about achieving those perfect legs also.
It’s no secret that a large proportion of men can be conscious about their body image – in particular gay men. In fact, recent studies show that homosexual men experience greater body-dissatisfaction than heterosexual men.
For some men, unsightly varicose veins stop them from wearing shorts and hiding their legs in trousers all summer. Fear not, a solution is out there.
A pioneering new technique called Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is a simple treatment which will eliminate varicose veins forever.
Dr David West, founder of Veincentre, explains: “40% of our clients are male and should not have to limit themselves while on holiday because they are embarrassed of their legs.
“Varicose veins affect people’s body confidence and we understand especially during the summer months that men as much as women want to look and feel their best.
“I encourage anyone worried about their varicose veins to seek advice before going on any holiday as the heat can cause further discomfort,” adds Dr West.
EVLA is perfect for men on the go as Veincentre can provide the consultation and procedure the same day, sometimes being completed within 90 minutes.
The procedure is pain-free leaving no scarring and within a couple of weeks you could be on a plane to the beach with nothing but shorts packed in your suitcase.
