We use wrinkle relaxing injections to relax this muscle and restrict how much it lifts up your upper lip thereby reducing your gummy smile. Further information and images of results can be found on the treatments page.
Sometimes we can use lip fillers alone or in combination with wrinkle relaxing injections to improve a gummy smile. Some people with thinner lips are better off getting fillers as it lasts longer than wrinkle relaxing injections. However, if you already have good sized lips, it is best to stick to the wrinkle relaxing injections.
