The Botox gummy smile correction procedure, also known as gingival smile correction, is a very simple, non-surgical, non-invasive operation that can produce very positive aesthetic results when performed in the correct clinical context. In the proper circumstances, the gummy smile correction Botox treatment should be completely non-invasive and should require no recovery or downtime. It is not uncommon for small red bumps to appear on the area where the Botox microinjection has been administered, but these will subside after just a few minutes. Some bruising is also possible, but again, the effects disappear rapidly. It is important, however, that you take great care not to touch or inflict any damage to the treated area for the next 4 to 6 hours after the procedure. Also, it is indicated that you do not take hot baths, saunas or showers and to avoid the consumption of alcohol.

If, however, the Botox gummy smile correction procedure is not performed correctly, the patient may experience some difficulty in smiling at all for a period of time. If the patient presents allergies to the botulinum toxin, then he/she can react very badly to the Botox treatment. †The same is true about people who have trouble breathing, though this is highly improbable in the case of the Botox gummy smile correction. Also, people who sing or use instruments that require blowing may encounter some issues immediately after the procedure. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our dental and cosmetic specialists are very careful to examine the patientís medical background in order to determine the best course of action and prevent any risks or future complications.
