Lip Filler for Gummy Smile

Our expert doctors can use Botox gummy smile treatment to relax the muscles that excessively pull up the lip and cause a gummy smile.

Gummy Smile Treatment

The smile is one of the most important expressions that we have. However, sometimes the presence of asymmetry or gumminess can sometimes be distressing. At City Skin Clinic, we offer gummy smile treatment with Botox injections above the lip to correct a gummy smile. This is a quick and painless procedure with no down time. Better still, the results of our gummy smile correction are visible within 3-4 weeks and can last for up to four months.

How We Correct a Gummy Smile Without Surgery

A gummy Smile when the upper lip lifts up far above your upper teeth when you smile. This is exposes your gums and makes the upper lip look thinner. The most common cause of this is due to overactivity of the muscles tat elevate the upper lip. The gummy smile can also be worsened by a naturally thin upper lip. If this happens, it can expose the gums even more. Thankfully, we can correct a gummy smile by reducing the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip. In patients with naturally thin lips, we can also combine this treatment with lip fillers.

What to Expect From Gummy Smile Treatment at City Skin Clinic

At City Skin Clinic, we place the patient experience at the heart of everything we do. For us this means personalised treatments, delivered safely with excellent service. You can smile confidently knowing that all our treatments are carried out by our expert aesthetic doctors.

Gummy smile treatment with Botox involves injecting Botulinum toxin at the junction of the nostril and nose to mouth fold. As a result, the muscles that pull up the lip will weaken. This will correct the gummy smile whilst still allowing you to smile and express yourself! You will start to notice an effect within the next 3-10 days and the full result will be visible 2 -3weeks after the treatment

For your safety and well-being,  we perform a detailed medical consultation before every gummy smile correction treatment. This allows your doctor to assess your general health and aesthetic requirements. If it is deemed safe and appropriate then we can offer Botox anti-wrinkle injections. To ensure safety and great results, we tailor the amount of Botox® necessary for each individual client’s face and muscle size. We also provide a complimentary top-up at 3-4 weeks after treatment if needed.
