    What is the Fab Clinic Gummy Smile

    In a perfect smile, the lip should sit just above the top of the teeth, but some people have problems with a disproportionate gum tissue to teeth ratio, leaving them self-conscious about their smile & the amount of gum shown when smiling (known as gummy smile).

    Causes for ‘gummy smile’ could include:

    • Thin upper lips
    • Protruding teeth
    • Hyperactive muscles

    Treatment For Gummy Smile
    Depending on the patient’s face, a couple of treatments could help to create a more natural and attractive smile shape.

    Toxin injections, also known as Botulinum toxin, can be used to reduce the muscle activity which controls the top lip. This can be very effective. Patients can expect to retain all their normal facial movements, but the top lip will not ride as far above the teeth.

    Toxins are individually prescribed by the treating practitioners for you specifically and we only use the highest quality substance brands available in the UK.  

    All facial injections are strictly administered by highly experienced and qualified advanced aesthetics staff or GMC-registered doctors at FAB Clinic.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • How long will it take before I see results?

    Results are expected usually from the 3rd day of your injection

    • How long will the results last for?

    In general, wrinkle injections last approximately 3-6 months. However, individuals with higher or lower than average muscle activity can expect proportionally higher or lower lasting results, respectively.

    • Is the injection painful?

    Injections are very routine and minimally invasive. Low to moderate discomfort will be experienced. With that said, prior to the injection, the area is anaesthetised using a strong numbing cream for maximum patient comfort.

    • How long before I can go back to my normal life?

    Some redness and irritation will be experienced during the administration of the injection, and you can almost immediately resume your normal activities with some limitations for your toxins to work effectively (SEE AFTERCARE).

    • Do I need a follow-up appointment after my injection?

    Usually not. However, patients are offered a complimentary touch-up on ALL our wrinkle injections should they need to within 2 weeks of the appointment. This is facilitated as some individuals prefer a more frozen look than others.

    • Is the treatment safe? Any side effects?

    Our senior practitioners will ONLY proceed with injectables having individually examined you on assessment against any contra-indications OR red flags considering your past & current medical history as well as your aesthetic goals.

    You will be advised in writing and verbally on consultation about any possible treatment side effects.
