Botox® injections are best known for minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines and other upper-face wrinkles. However, they can also enhance your smile.
How Can Botox Enhance Your Smile?
The small facial muscles around your mouth control how your smile looks. Botox injections stop those muscles from contracting, allowing them to relax – resulting in a more balanced, beautiful smile. Here are some ways Botox treatments can improve your smile:
1) Improves Gummy Smiles
Gummy smiles can be caused by abundant gum tissue combined with small teeth, a shorter upper lip coupled with a thicker gum line or a hyperactive upper lip. As a result, when a person smiles, their top lip rises higher than usual, showing a large portion of their gums. Botox injections can help with treating gummy smiles.
2) Gets Rid of Perma-Frowns
You may have a permafrown if people frequently ask you if you are angry or sad despite being in a good mood. As people age, their mouth corners can pull downward and develop permanent lines accentuating their frown. A corner-mouth lip lift with Botox can quickly reverse that frown.
3) Reduces Smile Lines
Smile lines are wrinkles and creases on the skin that affect your smile’s appearance. These lines are brought on by stress, lack of sleep, odd sleeping positions, aging, smoking, smiling, laughing and frowning.
Smile lines are classified into two types: marionette and nasolabial lines. The marionette lines occur at the corner of the mouth, whereas the nasolabial lines go from the nose to the outer corner of the mouth. Botox treatment helps eliminate these creases by injecting the drug into the muscles and restoring their tenacity.
4) Fixes Smoker’s Lines
Botox injections can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on and around the lips and mouth. This includes vertical lines caused by smoking, aging, kissing, extensive UV exposure and drinking via a straw. Smoker’s lines can be treated with Botox by injecting the medication into the orbicularis muscles between the lip and the skin.
5) Enhances Lips
The Botox lip flip improves the shape of the lips by administering a series of injections into the muscle right above the top lip. As a result of the toxin’s muscle-relaxing effects, the lip rolls outward and appears more voluminous and defined. Additionally, this will reduce the appearance of creases and wrinkles near the lips.
