BOTOX Results Take a Few Days
As effective as BOTOX is for a
number of conditions, including a gummy smile, it does take a bit of time for
the results to appear. In most cases, my patients start seeing changes about 5
days after their treatment. If you haven't noticed any results more than 7 to
10 after your treatment, get in touch with your injector. Thanks for your
Ditto to what the other surgeons have said. Give Botox at least 2-3 days for any effect, and up to a week for a strong noticeable effect. The dose that I typically give for a gummy smile is very small because I don't want to completely paralyze the lip elevator muscles, I just want to weaken them. Because of this, sometimes the dose may not be enough and a touch up might need to be done a week or two after the initial injection. I would wait a week and if you still have no difference, contact your surgeon.
hope this helps, and good luck
It will likely take 5 to 7 days before your Botox starts working, don't pass any judgment on its final effect until at least 14 days.
Botox will take at least 4 days to start showing it's effect after injection. It could take 10 days for it to be working fully. You are a little anxious to see the results. They will come.
Hope this helps,

Botox works for treatment of the gummy smile by weakening the muscles of the upper lip and therefore making it a little longer to come down over the teeth a little and this should occur within 5 days
10 days for full effect of botox
I tell all my patients it takes 10 days to get the full effect of botox. If you need more, wait until after the 10th day for a touch up.
Thanks for your question. Botox takes between 4-7 days to see the full effect so what you are experiencing is normal. If you don't see any change by 10 days, you can contact your injector and get a few extra units. Good luck
Botox and Time to see Results
Botox takes 7 to 14 days to see the full effect. Your physician should have explained that the results are not immediate. Keep us posted on your results. Best, Dr. Green
Thank you for your question. Botox usually takes effect between 5-7 days. Give it time to settle in. Hope this helps. Best regards
How Long Does It Take Botox To Fix a Gummy Smile?
Botox is an effective treatment for fixing a gummy smile. However, like all other Botox treatments, the effect of therapy is not immediate, nor would it be seen 1 day post-op. Change after Botox typically takes 1-2 weeks to set in.
