To numb your skin, an anaesthetic cream may be used initially. Injections are administered to the targeted area of your face, which is subsequently massaged. Depending on the region being treated, the therapy
normally takes 30 to 60 minutes. Botulinum toxin is injected slightly above the smile, it paralyses the elevator muscles which are causing the top lip to rise excessively, exposing too much gum tissue. The effect lasts about three to four months. For an appointment to treat your Gummy Smile in Birmingham, call Starbrows today.
