The latest advanced Botox Smile at Dermadoc- No more Gummy smiles!
In some people, smiling exposes the gums and produces an unattractive “Gummy Smile.” This phenomenon could be due to several reasons. One of the causes is a hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more.
For most people smiling is an expression of happiness however others whose gums stand out more than their smile does often feel self-conscious. Very often those with gummy smiles try to control and minimize their smile and some feel so self-conscious that they prefer not to smile at all. This impacts upon relationships both professionally and socially.
Dr Tukmachi will apply usually inject a small amount of Botox® on each side of your lip to weaken the muscles’ ability to contract. Within the next 3-4 days elevation of the upper lip is progressivelyt weakened and your smile is transformed, showing less gum and giving you the confidence to smile without inhibition. A lip enhancement using Juvederderm Smile or Restylane can also be done at the same time to enhance the Lip border.
The procedure will usually take 10 minutes and can be done at all 4 of our clinics (Harley street, New Bond street, Hammersmith and Brighton).
