Too much of your gums showing when you smile can really knock your confidence. Some even avoid smiling in photos. A gummy smile can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics and an overactive upper lip muscle. Fortunately, there is a relatively simple treatment available for those who struggle with this issue— anti wrinkle treatment. Treating your gummy smile can help restore your confidence in your smile. Anti wrinkle treatment is an effective and popular treatment option.

Can Anti Wrinkle Treatment Fix A Gummy Smile?

Yes! Anti wrinkle treatment is an effective and popular treatment option for gummy smiles. This treatment works by relaxing the muscles around your mouth. Your upper lips then do not curl as much when you smile. This helps to create a more balanced smile with your top and bottom teeth. All that, without having to resort to invasive surgery.

How Long Does Anti Wrinkle Treatment For Gummy Smile Last?

The effects of anti wrinkle treatment usually last up to three months. After this point, we recommend follow-up treatments with our doctors to help maintain the results. However, this greatly depends on the individual; some people may find that the effects last significantly longer than others.

Is Gummy Smile Treatment Same as Lip Flip?

No! Lip flips involve using anti wrinkle injections to relax the muscles in your upper lip so that it turns outward instead of inward when you smile or talk. This can help make your lips appear fuller and plumper, but it does not affect how much of your gum line is visible when you do smile. On the other hand, the gummy smile treatment is focused exclusively on reducing how much of your upper gum is visible when you smile or talk.

Is Gummy Smile Treatment Painful?

No! The needles used are very small, so most patients don’t experience discomfort during the injections themselves. Some people may experience slight soreness in their facial muscles afterwards, but this should go away within a few days at most. If you are nervous about getting injections, we can even apply numbing cream beforehand to make it that little bit easier for you!

All in all, gummy smile anti wrinkle treatment is an effective and relatively painless way to reduce how much of your upper gum line is visible when you smile or talk. Book now to speak to our doctors who can answer any questions or concerns you might have about the treatment of the gummy smile!

What Exactly Does Anti Wrinkle Treatment Do?

They can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Some wrinkles are only there when you smile or frown. However, with time they can become permanent so you can see them even when your face is relxaed. If your wrinkes are permanent it may not completely get rid of them. Over time, with regular treatments, your lines and wrinkles may continue to improve so you need treatments less often.

The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.

The treatment is safe when carried out by our highly trained doctors. However, there are potential risks with any medical procedure including bruising, swelling, redness or irritation at the injection site, headache or nausea. Droopy eyelids or brows are also a potentia risk (in rare cases), and allergic reactions such as hives or difficulty breathing (also rare). It’s important to discuss any concerns with your doctor before undergoing treatment.

The three most common side effects are bruising at the injection site; swelling or redness; and temporary weakness in nearby muscles. These side effects usually go away within a few days. If they persist or worsen it’s important to contact your doctor immediately.

No, unfortunately not. Though regular treatments can help temporarily reduce their appearance over time. The results will last up to three months so regular maintenance treatments are recommended if you want to maintain your desired look for longer periods of time.

Generally speaking, results from anti wrinkle treatment typically last three months. This varies depending on how quickly your body breaks down the protein as well as other factors such as age and lifestyle habits (like smoking). Additionally, individual results may vary depending on how much botulinum toxin was injected into each area being treated.
