Can BOTOX fix a gummy smile?
Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth and gums when you smile? Is the problem bothering you so much that you try to keep your mouth closed at all times? Rest assured, there is an answer to these concerns. BOTOX is a safe, non-surgical solution that is highly effective in combating a gummy smile. When injected, BOTOX can help relax the tiny facial muscles that are contracting at the upper lip, causing the gums to be visible when smiling. With BOTOX, the upper lip remains more stationary, covering the gums. Results typically last about 3 months. Dermal filler injections can also be useful in addressing a gummy smile. Check with your doctor to determine the best formulations for your unique cosmetic goals.
What procedures can I combine with BOTOX injections?
BOTOX can be well combined with dermal fillers to achieve comprehensive anti-aging results in the face and neck. BOTOX is a neuromodulator that addresses dynamic wrinkles created as a result of repetitive facial contractions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting. Dermal fillers address static wrinkles that form as a result of aging and sun damage. Together, they represent a formidable weapon against unwanted facial lines, creases, and folds. BOTOX can also be well paired with laser treatments and chemical peels, which help remove dead skin cells and debris, leaving your complexion radiant and youthful.
How much does BOTOX cost?
BOTOX is a personalized procedure. Each patient will require a different number of injections in different areas in order to achieve their aesthetic goals. Therefore, costs will vary.
