Why use Botox to treat a gummy smile?
Botox is non invasive and effective at reducing wrinkles and lines, and can also be adjusted depending on what results your require. It also causes little discomfort, a less so with repeat treatment. Results are natural and can be seen within 1-3 days.
Botox numbs the nerve endings in your skin, preventing certain targeted muscles from working. It can also be used to treat wrinkles and signs of ageing. Using botox is non invasive and effective. The treatment for a gummy smile works by stopping the muscles in your upper lip from lifting upwards when you smile.
What goes on at my appointment?
After your initial consultation with us you’ll be offered your appointment with one of our qualified injectors.
The injector will numb the area and inform of you of any potential side effects and what to expect during your treatment and afterwards.
We will then inject botox into the area and it will begin to work immediately and you’ll see results in 1-3 days and last for 6 months until the nerve endings begin to return.
