Botox for Gummy Smile Dallas

Botox can be used for wrinkle reduction, sweat reduction, and 24 other FDA-cleared indications in the human body. Dr. Lam also uses Botox to help with someone’s gummy smile, i.e., when one smiles too much, excessive gum is shown above the teeth. This is an unattractive feature that can be easily fixed with little cost, little to no discomfort, and increasing longevity. Dr. Lam specializes in this painless procedure and has treated a large number of individuals seeking this type of improvement.

The goal is to target a small muscle known as the levator alaeque nasi (LAN) that serves to lift the lips excessively to expose one’s gums. Fortunately, this procedure is painless using Dr. Lam’s vibratory technique, very quick (taking only a few seconds), and in almost every case has no recovery time. The result becomes apparent within a few days to a week in a subtle but profound way and should not affect speech or have other negative side effects.

Unfortunately, the procedure lasts a shorter time to start, only 6 weeks to 2.5 months but after 1 to 2 times, the interval becomes longer and longer in duration. Dr. Lam has noticed that after a few times the interval can expand all the way to 6 months to a year and require very little maintenance. This inexpensive, easy procedure is powerful in terms of the cosmetic benefits for an individual with little to no drawback.
