Gummy Smile Injections
Dr Lara Watson is a trainer and a highly experienced practitioner who uses Botox ® anti wrinkle injections
After a thorough consultation, Botox® may be provided to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
A ‘gummy smile’ is described when lots of gingivae (gum) is displayed in full smile. Although all smiles are beautiful, the cosmetic ideal is thought to include a minimal amount of gum on show. Botox® can be used to drop the lip line (lower border of the upper lip) reducing the amount of gum that shows in smiling.
The treatment involves a series of injections using a very fine needle. Generally speaking, the procedure is quite comfortable and topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) is not required. Afterwards a soothing cream is applied to the treated area. The procedure takes 15-20 minutes and no recovery time is required.

Botox and other forms of botulinum toxin such as Azzalure and Bocouture, have been scientifically proven to
be safe and effective for clinical use. The effects of Botox® are temporary meaning that repeat treatments are
generally required (every 4-6 months) to maintain the desired result.
