Gummy Smile Treatment Adelaide
Transform your gummy smile today with anti-wrinkle muscle relaxant injections.
Smile confidently with muscle relaxing injections, for gummy smile treatment at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine. All treatments are carried out by our expert Dr Rahma Targett. Gummy Smile is a phenomenon that when some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive smile. This happens due to several causes. One of the causes is hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more. Fortunately, a gummy smile can be simply and effectively corrected by muscle relaxing injections to reduce the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip.
We look forward to your visit.

What Are Muscle Relaxing Injections?
Muscle relaxing injections are a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It relaxes the muscle by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that lifts the upper lip up when smiling. The cosmetic effect of muscle relaxing injections was first documented as early as 1989. It is now regularly used by many, both male and female, as it is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance than traditional forms of treatment such as plastic surgery
What to Expect During The Procedure?
Prior to the treatment :
A full medical consultation will be completed to confirm your suitability for the treatment. The doctor may examine your ability to move certain muscles to determine location, size and use of the muscles that cause the area of concern. The desired results will then be discussed and a treatment plan will be created
A small amount of muscle relaxing injection will be injected at both sides of the junction of nostril and nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles. Within the next 3-4 days, the elevation of the upper lip will gradually become less and your new smile is transformed! You will be showing less gum and have much more confidence to smile without inhibition. The full result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment
Avoid touching, massaging or apply cosmetics or creams to the area for 6 hours. This will reduce the risk of infection. All aftercare instructions will be discussed with you before the treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
Am I Suitable For The Treatment?
Only you and the doctor can decide if the treatment is the one for you. During your medical consultation, our expert doctor will asses your medical history and make sure you are suitable for the treatment. Be sure to inform the doctor about any pre-excisting medical conditions such as:
– A disease that effects your muscles and nerves such as Myastenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome
-Allergies to any Anti Wrinkle Injection products
-Any medication that you are currently taking
-If you have had facial surgery or plan to have surgery in the future
-If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Also if you are breast feeding
Are There Any Side Effects?
Injection-related side effects are minimal and temporary such as redness, swelling, bruising. Spreading of the muscle relaxant to the muscle nearby that can cause temporally relaxation can be easily prevented by avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas for approximately 4 hours post treatment
How Long Do The Results Last?
The results last 4-6 months. The longevity of the result is variable and each individual may obtain a different result. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent results leaving you the option of refining your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion
