Male Vanity Shifts To Veins
By Marci Robin , Senior Online Editor |
Sclerotherapy, which corrects varicose and spider veins, is steadily rising in popularity. Some surveys now put it at the number-two spot for cosmetic-procedure popularity. But that's not due to the small increase in women seeking the treatment. Over the past five years, the number of men undergoing sclerotherapy is up over 200 percent.
In fact, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, as more men are treating their unsightly leg veins, fewer are opting for hair transplants. While the hair-loss procedure is still popular, it has seen a drop in patients, likely due to its average rise in price.
So don't be surprised if you start seeing a lot of bald men with great legs.
