Smile confidently with Botulinum toxin injection, commonly known as Botox injection, for gummy smile treatment at Cosmetic Clinic. All treatments are carried out by our expert Nurse. 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.
Prior The Treatment
Prior the treatment a full medical consultation will be completed to confirm your
suitability for the treatment. The Nurse may assess your facial muscle contraction
to determine the area of concern. The desired results will then be discussed and a
treatment plan will be created.
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. The full result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment. The treatment will last 3-4 months.
