Gummy Smile Correction
There is a treatment for patients who feel they show too much of their gum line when they smile (“gummy smile”)!
A gummy smile has been successfully treated with Botox/Dysport when performed by expert injectors. Injection of a low dose into precise points on the upper lip to reduce the “gum” showing without affecting any other motion.
We like to keep you posted on everything you need to know. In this case Botox/Dysport/Xeomin may lower the upper lip so that you are not be able to show the gum line when you smile. Because there is some risk of lowering too much, (which could affecting your singing or playing of a wind instrument, for example), using low doses and making sure that you receive precise injections by a highly qualified and certified professional are very important!
Gummy smile treatment (Gummy Smile Procedure using Botox) is painless but must be done carefully not to create an unbalanced smile. Improper use of Botox can ruin the natural movements of the upper lip and create a strange smile.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
