As we age, our lips lose volume and elasticity, resulting in a thinner, wrinkled appearance. Luckily, dermal fillers like the innovative Restylane Kysse can restore a shapely, kissable pout. Keep reading to learn all about this revolutionary filler and why it might be right for you.

What is Restylane Kysse?

Restylane Kysse is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA) specifically designed for lip enhancement.

HA is a natural sugar molecule found in the body that retains moisture and provides volume to the skin. Since it is already present in the body, HA fillers like Restylane Kysse are extremely safe and biocompatible.

The key advantage of Restylane Kysse over other HA fillers is its unique XpresHAn TechnologyTM. This exclusive manufacturing process creates versatile crosslinks between the HA molecules, resulting in a smooth gel with the ideal balance of softness and support.

The specialty formulation allows the filler to integrate seamlessly into the lips, moving naturally with facial expressions.

The Benefits of Restylane Kysse

There are many reasons why Restylane Kysse has become a top choice for lip enhancement. Some of the main benefits include:

  • Natural-Looking Results with Advanced Technology: Utilizing XpresHAn Technology™, Restylane Kysse ensures lips maintain their natural movement and appearance, eliminating concerns of an artificial or “overfilled” look. This technology helps in retaining natural lip movement and a range of expressions.
  • Soft, Smooth Texture for a Kissable Pout: Beyond adding volume, Restylane Kysse infuses lips with hydration, enhancing their texture. This results in a soft, smooth, and kissable pout, improving the overall aesthetic appearance of the lips.
  • Youthful Lip Hue Enhancement: Post-treatment, patients often observe a more vibrant, youthful hue in their lips, contributing to a natural-looking lip color enhancement.
  • Minimization of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Effectively targeting perioral lines, including smoker’s lines and vertical lip lines, Restylane Kysse smooths these areas, offering a solution for those concerned about signs of aging around the mouth.
  • Long-Lasting Results Supported by Clinical Studies: Demonstrating longevity, clinical studies reveal that Restylane Kysse can maintain its effects for up to a year, outperforming many other lip fillers in terms of duration.
  • FDA Approval for Safety and Efficacy: With its FDA approval, Restylane Kysse assures patients of its safety and effectiveness, adding a layer of trust and reassurance in its use.
  • Minimal Downtime and Quick Recovery: The treatment, typically lasting about 10 minutes, involves little to no downtime. Most patients can resume normal activities almost immediately, experiencing only mild swelling or bruising.

Target Areas and Application of Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is specifically formulated for lip augmentation and the correction of perioral wrinkles.

This dermal filler is adept at enhancing the lips’ volume and fullness, making it a popular choice for those seeking a more pronounced and youthful lip appearance.

  • Lip Augmentation: The primary focus of Restylane Kysse injections is the lips. The filler adds volume and contour, enhancing the overall shape and fullness. This is particularly beneficial for individuals looking to achieve plumper lips while maintaining a natural appearance.
  • Correction of Perioral Wrinkles: Apart from lip enhancement, Restylane Kysse effectively addresses upper perioral lines. These are the fine lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth, often referred to as “smoker’s lines.” The filler smoothens these lines, contributing to a more youthful and rejuvenated facial aesthetic.

Administering Restylane Kysse: A Step-by-Step Guide to Enhanced Lips

When receiving Restylane Kysse treatment, it is typically administered by a team of expert physician injectors. Here’s what you can generally expect during the process:

  • Customized Consultation: Initially, you’ll have a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. This step ensures your expectations align with the potential results.
  • Preparation and Comfort Measures: On the day of your appointment, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed. A topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure.
  • Precise Injection Technique: Restylane Kysse is injected using an ultra-fine needle into strategic points in the lips and around the mouth. This process, typically taking 10-15 minutes, is designed to achieve a symmetrical pout with natural-looking volume.
  • Aftercare Guidance: Post-treatment, you’ll receive instructions on aftercare, such as avoiding strenuous activity for 24 hours. Using cold compresses can help minimize any mild swelling or tenderness.
  • Visible Results: You can expect to start seeing the enhancement in your lips within a few days, with optimal results typically visible within 1-2 weeks as the filler naturally integrates into the lip tissue.

Safety is a priority, and only FDA-approved products are used. Treatments are administered by licensed medical professionals trained in advanced injection techniques, ensuring natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing outcomes.

Who Is a Candidate for Restylane Kysse?

Restylane Kysse is intended for patients over the age of 21 looking to rejuvenate their lips. Reasons you may want to consider treatment include:

  • You’ve noticed your lips thinning out and losing definition with age.
  • You have mild to moderate wrinkling and fine lines around the lips.
  • Your lips have always been naturally thin and you’d like a bit more fullness or contour.
  • Your lip shape and/or symmetry could use aesthetic enhancement.
  • You want your lips to appear smoother and softer.
  • You’d like to achieve a subtle “lipstick effect” without wearing makeup.

How Much Does Restylane Kysse Cost?

Restylane Kysse costs approximately $600-$800 per syringe.

Since everyone’s facial anatomy and aesthetic goals are different, your exact cost will depend on how much product is needed to accomplish your desired enhancement. Many patients only need 1-2 syringes for optimal results.

Unfortunately, as an elective cosmetic treatment, Restylane Kysse is not covered by insurance. However, we offer convenient financing options to help make this investment in your beauty and confidence affordable.

Restylane Kysse Safety Information

As with any cosmetic treatment, it’s normal to have questions about safety. Here are some facts about Restylane Kysse you can feel confident about:

  • Over 50 million Restylane treatments have been administered worldwide since 1996.
  • Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved specifically for lip enhancement in patients over 21.
  • Possible side effects are generally mild, like temporary swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection site. 
  • More serious complications like infection are extremely rare when proper injection protocols are followed.
  • The regenerative ingredient (HA) is naturally present in your body already. Allergic reactions are very uncommon.
  • Results are reversible in the unlikely event you are unsatisfied. An injection of hyaluronidase can dissolve the filler.
