Service Description

A gummy smile, where excessive gum tissue is visible above the top teeth when smiling, can be effectively corrected with non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This condition is typically addressed with the strategic injection of botulinum toxin, which relaxes the muscles that elevate the upper lip, thereby reducing the amount of gum exposure when smiling. The treatment generally takes about 30 minutes and begins with a consultation to understand the client's aesthetic goals and evaluate the dynamics of their smile. During the consultation, the practitioner assesses how the upper lip moves and the extent of gum visibility. The target area above the upper lip is then cleansed, and a small amount of botulinum toxin is precisely injected into the muscles responsible for lifting the lip. Recovery from this procedure is minimal, with no significant downtime required. Patients may experience slight redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these symptoms usually subside quickly, often within a few hours. Normal activities can typically be resumed immediately after the treatment. The effects of the toxin start to become noticeable within a few days and are fully visible within two weeks, lasting approximately 3 to 4 months. Regular maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain the desired aesthetic result.
