Restylane® Kysse is a lip filler in the Restylane family of products that was FDA approved in early 2020 for lip augmentation. It is a hyaluronic acid based filler formulated with XpresHAn Technology™, which refers to Galderma’s stabilization technology that delays degradation of the product. Restylane® Kysse is designed to provide shape and volume to the lips. It can also give some improvement to vertical lipstick lines above the lips. Results submitted to the FDA show that the filler can last up to 1 year.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural molecule found in the skin, which keeps your skin soft, supple, and hydrated. Restylane® Kysse has lidocaine incorporated within it, to lessen the pain of injections. We also use anesthetic cream to partially numb the lips prior to injection. As with any filler injection, there are potential side effects and risks. We encourage you to discuss options for lip augmentation with one of our facial plastic or plastic surgeons.
For those who seek fuller, more supple lips, or those looking to treat signs of aging of the lips, Restylane® Kysse gives a viable option. Please call us at 239-594-9100 to set up your appointment for this treatment.
