In some people, their gums above their top teeth are revealed when they smile (known as a gummy smile). This occurs when the muscle above the top lip is overactive. Two small injections of anti-wrinkle Toxin on each side can quickly and effectively allow the top lip to fall back into place, covering up the exposed gums.
All our treatments are performed by Dr. Michael Aicken. Dr. Aicken is a GMC registered Doctor and GP, he has 14 years of experience in advanced medical aesthetics. He has been teaching his own techniques to thousands of trainees from around the world for the past 12 years.
Will it hurt?
The needle we use is 32G, which means that it is the thickness of human hair. In addition, we also use anaesthetic cream for all injections, which further optimizes the experience for our clients. Additionally, as Dr. Aicken has vast experience in injecting Botulinum Toxin and so his injection technique will also limit discomfort.
