How it works

Deep smile lines? Top lip thinning? Showing too much gum? There are many reasons people try to avoid smiling. Fortunately, a smile enhancement is a simple, yet effective solution.

Cosmetic injections can improve your smile with zero downtime. Dermal fillers can plump your lips, and soften deep smile lines. Anti-wrinkle softens crow’s feet and bunny lines. Muscle-relaxing injections can treat your gummy smile and stop top lip thinning.

Our medical professionals will work with you to develop a personalised treatment to give you a more attractive smile.


Experience the benefits of a smile enhancement done by experts at Cosmetic Connection:

  • Reduces gum show when smiling
  • Improves the shape, symmetry, and proportion of your lips
  • Reduces top lip thinning
  • Soften nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Improves wrinkles around your eyes, and on your nose
  • Structures the cheeks

A smile enhancement is safe and effective. It takes just 10-20 minutes, and has no downtime. Dermal fillers used to enhance your smile can even be reversed.

Preparation & aftercare

To ensure your smile enhancement goes to plan, follow these preparation guidelines:

  • Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
  • Avoid consuming excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
  • Refrain from intense exercise immediately before your appointment

After your smile enhancement, proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and results:

  • Slight tenderness and swelling is to be expected, especially where dermal filler has been injected to the lips
  • Avoid makeup, intense exercise and excessive alcohol until the following day
  • Gently apply a wrapped ice pack to the treated areas to minimise swelling and bruising
  • Avoid applying pressure to areas injected with dermal filler for 7 days, and to areas injected with anti-wrinkle for 4 hours
  • Small lumps related to local swelling may occur and will resolve over a few weeks
  • After anti-wrinkle injections, you may notice small bumps at the injection sites which will resolve over 15 minutes

    The parts of a smile are:

    • The eyes
    • The cheeks
    • The lips
    • The teeth
    • Smile lines and wrinkles

    A smile enhancement is a non-surgical treatment that uses cosmetic injectables to improve your smile.

    It does not target the teeth.

    A smile enhancement uses dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to improve your smile.

    Dermal filler enhance your cheeks and lips, and reduce deep smile lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections soften crow’s feet wrinkles around your eyes, reduce a gummy smile, and reduce the top lip thinning when you smile.

    The extent and complexity of your smile enhancement determines the cost.

    To review the current starting and average cost of a smile enhancement, please see our pricing page.

    Yes, a smile enhancement can improve the appearance of a gummy smile.

    A gummy smile is caused by overactive smile muscles, small and thin lips, a long upper jaw bone (maxilla), or excess gum tissue.

    We can use gummy smile injections to relax the smile muscles, and lip filler to add fullness. This gives better gum tissue coverage.

    A lip flip can reduce top lip thinning when you smile for a more pronounced result.

    When done correctly, a smile enhancement has very little discomfort.

    Here at Cosmetic Connection, we prioritise a comfortable treatment. We use a gentle approach, premium products containing local anaesthetics, and strong numbing.

    A smile enhancement will usually takes 10-20 minutes.

    During your smile enhancement, we clean, mark and numb the treatment areas.

    We then precisely place dermal filler or anti-wrinkle injections in the planned treatment areas.

    Finally, any filler will be moulded smooth, and a protective balm applied to your skin.

    You will see the final result from your smile enhancement either immediately, or within 2.

    Dermal fillers give an immediate result, that settles over a few weeks.

    Anti-wrinkle injections take 2 weeks to reach full effect.

    The result from a smile enhancement will generally last 12-24 months where we’ve used dermal filler. Areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections typically need upkeep every 3-4 months.

    The longevity of your result depends on the type and amount of product injected, and your metabolism.

    Before your smile enhancement, you should follow these preparation guidelines:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup

    You may experience mild redness, tenderness, and swelling after your smile enhancement.

    Areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections may have small bumps that resolve in 15 minutes.

    You can speed up the healing process by carefully following the treatment aftercare instructions.

    The most important after instructions for your smile enhancement are:

    • Avoid intense exercise, alcohol and makeup until the following day
    • Refrain from applying firm pressure to the treated areas for 7-10 days
    • Gently apply a wrapped ice pack intermittently to the treated area for a few hours after your procedure

    You can partake in low-impact exercise immediately after your smile enhancement.

    For intense exercise, wait until the following day.

    A smile enhancement is categorised as a low-risk treatment. Visiting an experienced, doctor-led clinic is the best way to ensure that your procedure will be performed as safely as possible.

    The most common side effects from a smile enhancement are mild redness, swelling and tenderness. Bruising can also occur from time to time.

    Rare risks include infection and skin injury.
