How can Trikwan reduce the appearance of your Gummy Smile?
Previously patients have relied on Orthodontics, using braces or laser therapy, or even surgical bone shaving to reduce the gum line. However, at our Harley Street and Mayfair clinics we can achieve the same effects through much quicker and less intrusive treatments with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.
There are several ways we can achieve that perfectly balanced smile that you are looking for. For some people who are slightly less affected, we can drop the top lip by half a centimetre by injecting botulinum toxin into 2 specific muscles next to the nose that elevate the lip. These toxin injections relax these muscles and drop the top lip down over the gum line. The effects of this treatment can take up to 2 weeks to reveal themselves, but if your desired effect isn’t achieved in one appointment then we can perform a free top up 2 weeks later to drop that lip a little more.
However, if toxin injections alone do not achieve the desired result, we can combine this treatment with dermal filler injections into the top lip to add some extra volume to help correct the gummy look and achieve a perfectly balanced, natural looking smile.
*All of our treatments require minimal down time. Any potential side effects, such as temporary bruising and swelling will be discussed during your consultation.
