Everyone has a little something about their facial features they would like to change. For some, it is the look of their smile and how their lips frame their mouth. If you've always felt that your smile shows too much of your gum line, rather than just your teeth, there is a solution. The look of your smile is controlled by the small facial muscles around your mouth. By injecting a neuromodulator chemical, like Botox, with strategic placement in those muscles, we can actually change the positioning of your lips around your mouth. We can lower the upper lip line to hide more of your gums.
At The K Spa, we use bruise-free cannulas instead of needles and small, concentrated amounts of Botox in our injections. This provides us with great precision in our placement and gives you the highest comfort level available with your injections. Greater precision, combined with the expertise of a dual board certified plastic surgeon, ensure that you receive amazing results that meet or exceed your expectations for a natural-looking beauty enhancement.
Although The K Spa does offer other neuromodulator injectables, Botox remains our preferred product of choice in most cases. A smile that shows an excess amount of gum line can be caused by the upward pull of the smile muscles, and thin lips can add to this characteristic. Botox injections can help relax the upward pull from the mouth muscles. When necessary, this treatment can be combined with dermal fillers to add more plumpness to the lips to further enhance your smile.
Botox works on mouth lip lines by targeting the nerve receptors for the muscles that pull the lip up or down. The neurotoxin in Botox blocks the signals to contract, relaxing the muscle. This can lower your mouth lip line to hide gums, improving the beauty of your smile. However, this is not as easy as it sounds.
The correct placement of Botox injections is crucial for the desired results in mouth lip line corrections. It is also important to have the highest quality Botox for the procedure. Wrong placement or diluted Botox can affect other surrounding muscles that can negatively affect your smile. However, our team at The K Spa is directed by our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong. His expertise and knowledge of the facial muscles and Botox treatment lends to meticulous results in mouth lip line adjustments, only affecting the specific muscles causing a "gummy" smile.
Stop trying to control your smile to hide your gums. At The K Spa, we can help improve your smile with our quick mouth lip line procedure. Our experienced aesthetics team, under the guidance of our medical director Dr. Stong, can perform your treatment right in our office. The procedure will only take a few minutes after your initial consultation and examination to determine the best placement for your injections.
Botox injections take effect over several days after your treatment. You should notice results within a week as the medication begins to take effect. You can expect to have continued results for a few months. Each person is different, but for most people, Botox results last about 4-6 months. To maintain the effect, repeated treatments can be safely used for many years.
