VIVA Skin Clinic’s Gummy Smile Treatment

VIVA Skin Clinic’s Gummy Smile Treatment

We all know Botox to be an effective anti-wrinkle treatment, but what you might be surprised to hear is that Botox is actually an incredibly versatile product that can be used to treat an array of complaints. As well as using Botox to treat stubborn fine lines and wrinkles, at VIVA Skin Clinics we are proud to offer innovative Botox treatments including: Botox for excess sweating, the Nefertiti neck lift, Botox for a square-shaped jaw and Botox for a gummy smile.

What exactly is a gummy smile?

A ‘gummy smile’ is a term used when a person’s gums show excessively when they smile. It can make people feel self-conscious and make something as simple as smiling feel embarrassing.

How can Botox help?

As you might expect the more traditional, invasive cosmetic surgery is drastic and expensive and involves the removal of gum tissue. Luckily, contrary to popular belief, there is another way to fix those gummy smile woes and that solution is Botox. Botulinum toxin is injected to target and relax the muscles around the mouth that are causing the excess retraction and thus displaying excess gum tissue. As these muscles weaken the top lip will come down over this gum area helping to produce that perfect Hollywood smile.

There are just 4 injection points involved in this treatment making it a very quick and easy process; most appointments for gummy smile treatment last around 30 minutes. The product is fast acting and results should start to appear within 7-10 days with maximum results being achieved after 2 weeks.

What are the benefits?

  •  Affordable: Prices start at just £200.
  •  Quick and convenient.
  • Minimal downtime.
  • Relatively pain-free (local anesthetic cream is applied to help reduce discomfort).
  • Results are impressive and quickly noticeable.
  • Effective treatment without committing to drastic, invasive surgery.

Is it for me?

VIVA’s Botox treatment for a gummy smile is suitable for anyone who feels they are showing a little too much gum when they smile. If this is something that affects your self-confidence and makes you want to hide your smile away, this

procedure could very well be for you. It is particularly suitable for those with busy lifestyles, looking for a convenient and fuss-free solution.

At VIVA Skin Clinics you can receive an in-depth consultation free of charge to discuss whether Botox is the right choice for you. Botox is also temporary (lasting around 4-6 months) so it is the perfect alternative to committing to permanent cosmetic surgery.
