Answer

Anti-wrinkle injections are a great temporary treatment for gummy smiles! Treatment involves normally just 2 small injections of 1-3 units per side of the nose. The muscle injected is called the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi (LLSAN). This muscle is bilateral down the sides of the nose and the action of the muscle is to pull the top lip up when smiling. When a small amount of anti-wrinkle injections are injected into this muscle, it temporarily relaxes the muscle down, which results in showing less gum, in a gummy smile. When the LLSAN is hyperactive, and pulls the top lip up showing 4mm of gum, this is considered a gingival smile. 
 
Anti-wrinkle injections start working within 1-3 days post treatment, continue to work for 2 weeks and can lasted to 3 months, depending on how many units were used. ie. less units may not last as long. This is an area where a conservative approach needs to be taken, because if too much product is injected, you won’t be able to smile ‘properly’. More anti-wrinkle injections may be administered at 2 weeks after injection, but there is no ‘reversal’ for anti-wrinkle injections.
 
Please note that all City Skin clinics have a minimum charge of $150 for gummy smile, regardless of how many units are injected. For further details about gummy smile treatment, please visit https://cityskin.com.au/anti-wrinkle/gummy-smile-treatment-melbourne/
