The elevation of one’s upper lip far above their upper teeth, exposing gums produces the “Gummy Smile.” This is the result of a hyperactive muscle which pulls the lip too far up when smiling. Sometimes the “gummy smile” is aggravated by a thin upper lip that contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more. Individuals, whose gums stand out more than their smile does, often control their smiles and can look depressed or angry. Botox when injected at certain strategic points above the upper lips, by a highly trained physician at Trifecta Med Spa, lowers the upper lip by up to 5 mm to hide the gums and give a more beautiful smile. The technique is very delicate and if not performed professionally, may result in a crooked smile. If a thin upper lip is a contributing factor our specialists at Trifecta Med Spa NYC may suggest upper lip augmentation with Juvederm.
