The Harley Medical Group is reporting that as the 2010 World
Cup kicks off, many of its 29 UK clinics will be at 'full capacity'
with non-surgical treatment bookings up 25% on the England match dates.
While many male footie fanatics have scheduled time off work to watch the first
round of games in June, women across the country are making the most of the free
time and booking rejuvenating peels and wrinkle relaxing injectables.
Keen to not to have any distractions this summer men are openly encouraging
girlfriends and wives to spend more 'me' time, with pampering sessions and
girls-only days out.
Liz Dale, Director, The Harley Medical Group, commented, "During the World Cup four
years ago, we noticed a peak in female dominated treatments. This year the trend
continues with enquiries for June up 48% compared to this time in 2006, which
reflects the cumulative growth we've seen in non-surgical treatments overall. Women
know they won't be getting much attention from their husband or boyfriend while the
football is on so this is the perfect feel-good factor treat."
"Unsurprisingly we're also expecting cosmetic surgery bookings for men to be down slightly - around 10%
- in June for the first time in 20 months."
Katherine Moore, 48, from Brighton said, "During the last World Cup my husband and
I were on holiday in Italy. I hardly ever saw him and on match days he would spend
hours searching for bars showing the game. This year, a girlfriend and I have
decided to holiday in Dubai. We both want to try a nip of Botox to give us a smooth
complexion so we're planning to book in a week before we go. My husband has
actually offered to pay for a treatment - no doubt as a sweetener, but I'm
certainly not complaining"
