Smile confidently with Botulinum toxin injection, commonly known as Botox injection, for gummy smile treatment at Second Look Aesthetics. All treatments are carried out by our expert cosmetic specialist Practitioners.
Gummy Smile is a phenomenon that when some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive smile. This happens due to several causes. One of the causes is hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip.
Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more. Fortunately, gummy smile can be simply and effectively corrected by Botulinum toxin (well known as Botox) injections to reduce the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip.
A small amount of Botulinum toxin will be injected at both sides of the junction of nostrill and nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles. Within the next 3-4 days, elevation of the upper lip will gradually become less and your new smile is transformed! You will be showing less gum and have much more confidence to smile without inhibition. The full result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment.
Avoid touching, massaging or apply cosmetics or creams to the area for 6 hours. This will reduce risk of infection. All aftercare instructions will be discussed with you before the treatment by your Practitioner.
