Botox For Gummy Reduction

Treatment at MELOCARE for gummy smile

More commonly known as a “gummy smile,” some people have a lot of gum tissue that can be seen whenever they laugh or grin. Although it’s generally not an urgent issue, individuals with a “gummy smile,” often feel less confident about their smile.

Twice as many women as men suffer from a gummy smile. A smile considered gummy is one that shows an excess of gum tissue (3 mm or more).

At MELOCARE Botox is injected above the smile to temporarily denervate the muscles that cause the upper lip to excessively lift. Effective Botox treatment for a gummy smile requires injection at the intersection of these three muscles, a triangular area called the Yonsei Point.

Typical Botox treatment for a gummy smile includes injections at the Yonsei Point on either side of the nose and lasts for around 3 months .
