If when you grin, too much gum tissue shows over the upper teeth, this is known as a gummy smile or excessive gingival presentation.
The wrinkle relaxing treatment works by relaxing the precise muscles in the face that are contracting more vigorously, resulting in excessive gum exposure when smiling.
- An excessively short upper lip.
- An excessively thin upper lip.
- When the face is relaxed, the top lip is normal length, but when smiling, it lifts too high, revealing a lot of gum tissue.
The underlying cause of the problem will determine treatment.
A gummy grin can be remedied easily and efficiently by treating the hyperactive muscles. A little dose of botulinum toxin will be injected on both sides of the junction of the nostril and the nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles. The procedure tries to calm the hyperactive lip elevator muscles, resulting in a gummy grin correction/improvement.
Before beginning your treatment, you must first have a consultation. This is true regardless of whether you have previously had anti-wrinkle injections elsewhere. This is so that we can discuss your medical history and ensure that the procedure is suitable for you, and ensure that you are entirely informed before beginning treatment.
You may have concerns regarding the safety of the anti-wrinkle treatment. This medicine has a lengthy history of usage, which gives it a high level of efficacy and safety. Wrinkle relaxing treatment is FDA-approved to treat wrinkles and fine lines, and there is a very low risk of side effects when performed by skilled, experienced specialists. Anti-wrinkle injections are appropriate for a broad spectrum of people, but there are some limitations to be aware of. This treatment is for healthy men and women who are at least 18 years old. It is not recommended for persons with certain underlying medical disorders, such as myasthenia gravis or motor neuron disease. This treatment is also not recommended if you are pregnant or have previously had an adverse reaction to the injections.
Most people don’t feel any discomfort during this procedure. We can use a light topical anaesthetic to numb the area beforehand if you are apprehensive about having this treatment or have a fear of needles. The skin may be red and inflamed after treatment, but you should be able to get back to work straightaway.
After the initial treatment, it may take up to 2 weeks to get the full effects. The cosmetic results can last up to six months, but most require another treatment after 3-4 months. As wrinkles resurface, most people will require retreatment.
However, as the unconscious muscular contraction habit is changed in some treated locations, the wrinkles may return less prominent following repeated treatments. We provide all of our patients with a free two-week follow-up session to check the treatment’s effectiveness and, if necessary, give any more treatments.
The majority of people report just modest local discomfort and tenderness as a result of the treatment. The injection site may be moderately swollen right after the treatment, but this usually goes away within 48 hours. It’s also possible to have some minor bruises. These medications have virtually no side effects. The treatment may cause temporary lowering of the brow or eyelids by relaxing surrounding muscle groups.
This could persist for a few weeks, but it will eventually go away. An allergic reaction is possible. There are unforeseen benefits resulting from the relaxation of the forehead muscles, including decreasing the likelihood of tension headaches. These medicines have been in use for more than 20 years and do not seem to have caused any long-term side effects.
- After the treatment, don’t wear make-up for at least 24 hours.
- For 48 hours, avoid touching or rubbing the injected regions, as well as facials and massages, ensuring that the treatment remains at the injection site.
- For the next 48 hours, avoid excessive activity, sauna, and alcohol-based products on the treated area.
- Arnica cream can be applied if bruising occurs.
- Take paracetamol after the treatment if you are experiencing any pain.
