How it works

Do you show too much gum when you smile and laugh? Gummy smile injections are a safe and effective treatment to reduce visible gum show.

Gummy smile injections are available at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne. They work by relaxing the muscle that lift your upper lip. This slightly reduces how much the upper lip lifts when smiling, meaning less gum will be seen.

The medical professionals at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne are experienced in gummy smile injections. During your comprehensive consultation, we will design a bespoke treatment plan to treat your gummy smil. For a more severe gummy smile, we may recommend combining gummy smile injections with other treatments such as a lip flip or lip filler as a part of a comprehensive smile enhancement treatment.


Gummy smile injections are a popular treatment in Melbourne, and have the following benefits:

  • Reduce visible gum when smiling and laughing
  • Improve smile height symmetry of the upper lip
  • Give you a more attractive smile

Injections to reduce excessive gum show take only a few minutes and have no downtime.

    There are a number of treatments available in Melbourne that can improve the appearance of your gummy smile.

    The most common way to treat a gummy smile is with gummy smile injections. This relaxes the muscles that lift your upper lip when smiling and laughing. Gummy smile injections can be combined with a lip flip and lip filler for a more effective correction in cases of a severe gummy smile.

    Prior to the injections, the treatment area will be cleaned, marked and numbed.

    Tiny needles are then used to inject a product that relaxes the upper lip elevating muscles in the hollow area beside each nostril.

    Gummy smile injections have almost no pain. For those concerned about pain, we have a number of strong numbing options available to ensure that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum.

    Gummy smile injections start to work after 3-5 days, with the final result being seen 14 days after your treatment.

    Gummy smile injections usually last for 3-4 months for most people.

    The longevity of your gummy smile injections depends on the strength of your smile muscles, and the amount of muscle relaxing product injected.

    There are a few steps to take before your gummy smile injections in Melbourne to optimise your result, and lower the risk of side effects. They include:

    • Cease all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (unless you have been advised to take these by a medical practitioner)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup

    After having gummy smile injections at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne, you may experience slight redness at the injection sites. This will quickly resolve in a few hours.

    3-5 days after your treatment, the effect will start to work. The final result from gummy smile injections is seen 14 days after the treatment.

    When performed correctly, gummy smile injections are categorised as a low-risk treatment.
