What is Restylane® Kysse?
Restylane® Kysse is a dermal filler specifically designed to add volume and definition to the lips and mouth area. It is part of the Restylane family of products, which also includes fillers for other areas of the face such as cheeks and eyebrows. As with all Restylane products, Kysse is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. This makes it safe and effective for adding volume to lips without any downtime or anesthesia. Kysse is administered as an injectable treatment that helps refresh the appearance of aging or thinning lips, by filling out wrinkles and creases that have formed over time.
Who is an ideal candidate for Restylane® Kysse?
Restylane Kysse is safe and effective for a wide range of patients. It can be used to enhance the shape, volume, and definition of lips in people over 21 years of age who have thinning or aging lips. It is particularly helpful for those with:
• Fine lines around the mouth
• Thin or flat lips
• Unbalanced lip shape or size
• Sagging skin around the mouth due to aging.
Kysse is also ideal for those who want a subtle result that looks natural and can last up to 12 months with touch-ups. The treatment is gentle and minimally invasive, making it an attractive option for those looking for a non-surgical lip augmentation.
What can I expect during a Kysse treatment?
During a Kysse treatment, the healthcare professional will use a very fine needle to inject small amounts of the filler into different areas of the lips and mouth. This helps to add volume, shape, and definition as desired. The entire process is typically completed within 15-30 minutes, depending on the amount of product used.
What areas can be treated with Restylane® Kysse?
Restylane Kysse can be used to enhance the appearance of lips, as well as other areas such as the corners of the mouth and vermillion border. It can also be used to improve symmetry between both sides of the face, by adjusting lip size or shape on one side.
How long does a Restylane® Kysse procedure take?
The entire Restylane Kysse procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the amount of product used. The results are immediate, and you can expect to see full results within 2 weeks.
Are there any side effects associated with Restylane® Kysse treatments?
As with any injectable treatment, there may be some side effects associated with Restylane Kysse. These include swelling, redness, bruising, itching, and tenderness at the injection site. These reactions are usually mild and typically resolve within a week or two after treatment.
What is recovery like after Restylane® Kysse?
Recovery after Restylane Kysse is typically quick and easy. After the treatment, you may experience some swelling and tenderness in your lips. This should resolve over a few days or up to a week. It is best to avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours after treatment, but otherwise, there are no restrictions on activities or resume normal daily activities.
You should also avoid swimming, sunbathing, and saunas for a few days after treatment. It is important to use an SPF of 30 or higher when outdoors as your skin may be more sensitive following the procedure.
What are the benefits of Restylane® Kysse?

How much does Restylane® Kysse cost?

How long do the results last after Restylane® Kysse?

Can I get repeat Restylane® Kysse treatments?
Yes, you can get repeat treatments with Restylane Kysse. However, it is important to wait a few months in between treatments so that your lips have time to heal and adjust to the results of the first treatment before adding more product.
Botox vs Restylane® Kysse?
