Wrinkle Relaxing Injections Gummy Smile


Some patients feel that when they smile, they show too much of their gums, this is referred to as a “Gummy Smile”. It may be caused by hyper-elevation of the muscles in the top lip, in which case, relaxing those muscles softens the elevation and lowers the top lip to conceal more of the gums.

If this is something you feel very conscious about, it can be remedied by a few tiny injections of BOTOX®

If you have a very slim top lip, which sometimes accompanies or exacerbates the issue, we may suggest you also have a lip enhancement with dermal filler.





Who will be performing the treatment?

You may decide which product is right for you.

What will be involved in the Treatment?

You will be consulted and we will advise you about what is possible in terms of treatment and answer any questions you may have.

Treatments are carried out in a clinical environment. You will be asked to lie down comfortably whilst you are treated.

Will it hurt?

The needles used in administering the treatment are extremely fine so discomfort is kept to a minimum. The injections are relatively quick too, so if you do feel them they are soon over with.

How long will it take until I see a result?

The results of your treatment may take up to 14 days, however many people see a reduction in their wrinkles 3 -5 days post-treatment.

Is there any aftercare?

We ask you to refrain from washing your face or applying make-up for 4 hours after treatment, to avoid bacteria and possible infection.
Apart from this advice, you may carry on as normal.

How long will the results last?

The majority of our wrinkle reduction and relaxation treatments last for 3 – 6 months. It is worth noting that the first treatment may be evident for a shorter length of time, e.g. 3 months, but once you have been treated again, you are more likely to see the results lasting longer.
