Gummy Smile Treatment

Smile confidently with a small Botulinum toxin injection, commonly known as Botox injection, for gummy smile treatment at The London Cosmetic Clinic. All treatments are carried out by our expert cosmetic doctors. Gummy Smile is  when some people smile, their upper lip elevates far above their upper teeth, exposing the gums. This happens due to several causes. One of the cause is hyperactive muscles elevating the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also exacerbated 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.

The procedure

Prior to the treatment :

A full medical consultation will be completed to confirm your suitability for the treatment .The doctor may examine your ability to move certain muscles to determine location, size and use of the muscles that cause the area of concern. The desired results will then be discussed and a treatment plan will be created

Treatment :

A small amount of Botulinum toxin will be injected at both sides of the junction of nostril and nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles. Within the next 3-10 days, elevation of the upper lip will gradually become less and your new smile is transformed! You will show less gum and have much more confidence to smile without inhibition. The full result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment

Post 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 our Clinic Coordinator.
