In the non-surgical procedure, we usually use combine two injectable substance, Botox and Restylane. In this basically, your upper lip gets paralyzed so that muscle does get pull up high when you smile. It is a fifteen minutes procedure. This treatment lasts about the next six months and can give an immediate beautiful smile. After six months the procedure need to be redone.
