Gummy Smile Reduction
A gummy smile is when you show excessive pink gum when you smile due to the lip lifting quite high above the teeth. This can be due to hyperactivity of the muscle above the lip, due to thin lips and poorly defined lip borders giving the appearance of an unattractive smile.
Botulinum Toxin block signals between the nerves and muscles to relax facial muscles which allow the lip to relax and drop giving the appearance of an attractive well proportioned smile.
Many now elect to have this treatment to prevent the appearance of the gummy smile from returning as it stops the movement of muscles which causes the lip to lift.
Botulinum Toxin is a purified protein has been used in the UK within the cosmetic industry for more than 20 years and has been extensively studied for years with a large emphasis on safety.
