I had the pleasure of visiting Smilepod Soho last weekend, for a procedure I have always been nervous and hesitant about.
I always assumed that having any form of facial rejuvenation procedure would be painful and leave me with disappointing results.... I was very wrong.
This was one of the most easy, simple straight forward and pain free procedures I've ever undergone.
I couldn't believe that you could now have this procedure at you dentist.... genius idea. Dentists have become a great choice of facial injectable provider due to their vast knowledge of facial anatomy as well as their ability to perform injections safely.
My experience was wonderful; I was greeted by dentist and male rejuvenation specialist Gino Castro where I was given an in-depth run down of the process and the results I should expect; He also informed me of the 3 layers of our face and how the procedure would work. He was very thorough in all the details given and ensured all the correct forms were signed and procedures followed.
You will see from image 3 that this is where the injections are inserted and the muscle areas are targeted. The middle image shows where the fat is positioned within the human face.
Gino Castro, dentist and male rejuvenation specialist at Smilepod Soho and Canary Wharf city clinic has seen a rise in male clientele with a 40 per cent ratio of men.
In 2015, a study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons said the number of men getting injections increased by 337 percent since 2000.
More and more people want to slow down the signs of ageing and enhance their youthful traits, with men becoming especially appearance conscious.
In the last few years male skincare sales have boomed as men are concerned about premature ageing. The male skincare and grooming market is estimated to top £14.8 billion globally this year.
This increase in injectables is attributed to the fact that procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections (for example botulinum toxin) and dermal fillers are much gentler than old fashioned and traumatic under the knife plastic surgeries. Clients walk away from these procedures feeling more confident and positive.
I cannot recommend Smilepod enough. The who process was easy and very quick also. And the results was far better than I even expected. My face feels tighter and the lines that were once around my eye area and forehead are almost non existent. I will definitely be returning, as the results last anything up to 3 months which is great.
