Gummy smile treatment is treated with a very small amount of anti-wrinkle injections. Depending on how strong the muscles are that pull the top lip up to smile are, they only require 1-3 units per side. Because this is such a small dose of anti-wrinkle injections, you may not get the ‘typical’ 3 months out of the treatment. In saying that, most of my patients are satisfied with the results for 2-3 months after treatment, with only 1-3units per side. The injections start working in 1-3 days after treatment and reach peak effect at 2 weeks. After that, the anti-wrinkle injections slowly start wearing off. I would suggest to keep track of when you have your injections and see how long you’re satisfied with the result for, then you will have an idea if it was the  right dose for you (you may need more than what was injected), or when you need to come back for your next treatment.
