Gummy smile

Does everyone see your gums when you smile? And is that why you often smile with your hand over your mouth? Aesthetic Beauty Center specializes in treating the so-called gummy smile that causes this. With the help of botulinum toxin you will soon be able to smile carefree and relaxed again.

Fixed with a few injections

With a gummy smile, the lifting muscle of the upper lip is too strong. This will show your gums and the top row of teeth. This phenomenon is congenital and can be observed at a young age. With a few injections of botox, the muscles above your mouth can relax, creating a natural smile. Your gums will no longer be visible. Botox consists of a natural protein and is extremely safe. It falls under the Medicines Act. Usually the effect of botox is visible for 3 to 5 months. To achieve a long-lasting effect, it is important that you return after 3 months for a repeat treatment. If you use the injectable for the first time, you must take into account a build-up time. The more often you come back, the better the result.

Personal Advice

Before the treatment begins, we invite you for a 10-minute intake, without any obligation. You discuss your wishes with the doctor and what options are available. He also goes through the expectations with you. It is also possible to schedule a free intake without obligation.

Before the Treatment

We ask that you do not drink alcohol or take any medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen 48 hours before the treatment. An anesthetic is not necessary; the treatment is usually not experienced as painful. We do handle a number of administrative matters before the treatment, so we ask you to be present 15 minutes in advance.

The Treatment

During the treatment, the doctor will carefully prick your gums at the level of your nose. This relaxes the muscles in your upper lip. The treatment only takes a few minutes. The injections may hurt a little.

After the Treatment

After the treatment you may experience a slight swelling. But this goes away quickly. After 3 to 4 days you will see the first result. After 2 weeks you will see the final result. We recommend that you follow the doctor's instructions carefully, so that the result is optimal after 2 weeks.

Check-up, after-treatment, re-treatment

2 to 3 weeks after the treatment you can make a check-up appointment for evaluation. If necessary, we will also schedule the re-treatment. Is there still a lot of muscle activity in the treated muscles? Then we may inject additional botox. This is included in the treatment. If there is also muscle activity after the refill, we will not continue the botox treatment. Apparently your body does not respond well to botox.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doesn't the gummy smile come back worse when the botox wears off?

No, on the contrary. You haven't activated the muscles that tighten your upper lip for a long time. That way it won't come back worse.

Will the treatment affect the way I eat?

No, you will be able to continue to eat normally.

Will my smile change?

Yes, but that's the point. Your gums are much less visible when you smile. You get a nicer smile.
