Best Botox in Birmingham! Dr. Farmah was a professional and very warm and welcoming. He also did fillers with her for nasal labial folds and best lip injections. What a great experience!!!

Dr. Farmah was so thorough, informative, and reassuring. This was my first Botox treatment ever performed on myself, and I used it as more of a preventative method. I started developing a horizontal line across my forehead and worried that it would become more permanent if not targeted right away by a professional. He makes it sound and look so easy. Very professional atmosphere and exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him!

I had few sessions of Micro-needling with Dr. Farmah there. Very happy with my results! The aestheticians are super professionals and kind, the treatment is relaxing and I love to go to this clinic as my break time from work and stress. A little me time once a month for relaxation and beauty. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend! I'm from Bromsgrove, and it is worth the drive! Dr. Farmah truly knows what he is doing. I was nervous because any alteration to the face is scary. I am young and have always had dark circles. No creams, diet, or products helped. I was impressed by how natural his patients looked. I am young, so I did not want the “filler” look. Dr. Farmah did a great evaluation, and did not push me to get the treatment. I truly think he did everything right: deep fillers, microcannula, Restylane. I had very little bruising and swelling, and I went out to dinner right after treatment. Overall, I would absolutely do this treatment with Dr. Farmah again. I look rested and refreshed, and it looks natural! Thank you, Dr. Farmah!

I recently came to see Dr. Farmah after a friend had recommended me for filler. I have had a hard time finding a decent injector around Birmingham and was nervous at first. But my experience here was fantastic. My results came out better than I had expected and required less product than I had been quoted by others. Dr. Farmah was very professional and patient and did an excellent job of explaining my options between Restylane and Juvederm. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in botox & Fillers! I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face.

Gummy Smile

A 'gummy smile' is a widespread condition that affects around 15% of adults and causes many people to be self-conscious and anxious when smiling.

What is a Gummy Smile?

A Gummy Smile is a term used to describe the condition where a significant portion of the gums are on show when you are smiling. While what exactly qualifies as a 'gummy smile' may differ from person to person, the general consensus is that a smile will usually be perceived as gummy when three millimeters or more of gum tissue shows.

What Causes A Gummy Smile?

There are a number of reasons why you may have a gummy smile. For one, it could simply be down to genetics, where your upper lip is slightly shorter. As a result, you will naturally show more gums when you smile. Similarly, you could have been born with your maxilla somewhat protruded (this is the upper jaw that holds your teeth in place)

The muscle that controls your upper lip movement could be hyperactive, causing your upper lip to rise higher than normal, resulting in a gummy smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get rid of my Gummy Smile?

With our Gummy Smile treatment at Dr. Aesthetica, we can correct your gummy smile and, most importantly – give you your confidence back. Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections offer an effective non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of gummy smiles. Botox relaxes specific muscles around your mouth to stop your gums from showing when you smile. And the best part is you don't need any surgery whatsoever; in fact, you could be back at work the same day. 

What should I expect during the treatment?

An average appointment for this treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes. You will start to see results in a few days, with optimal results usually seen around the 2-week mark after the treatment.

Also, it's worth noting that treatment for a Gummy Smile is generally pain-free. There's also an option for a numbing cream to be used on the area if you are concerned about any discomfort.

Side effects such as bruising, swelling, and bleeding tend to be very rare with this procedure.

The results of treating a gummy smile with Botox tend to last between 3 and 6 months but may last even longer depending on your skin's natural genetic make-up.

Treatments for Gummy Smile: Botox®

Many people feel that too much of their gums show, or their gums are simply too prominent when they smile. We have good news —a gummy smile can be fixed!

Our treatment of Botox® is an effective solution for achieving that perfect smile. You no longer have to be self-conscious when you smile,
