What is Restylane Kysse?

Restylane Kysse is a hyaluronic acid filler from the Restylane family of products. FDA-approved in April 2020 and released in May 2020, Restylane Kysse is used for lip enhancement and correction of upper lip lines. This hyaluronic acid gel filler has been approved and used in Europe and Canada for several years prior to its introduction stateside.

Where can Restylane Kysse be used?

Restylane Kysse is approved for treatment around in and in the lip area. This new hyaluronic acid gel filler is used to correct perioral lip lines, enhance lip shape and structure, and improve the corners of the mouth.

How long does Restylane Kysse last?

Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved for up to 48 weeks duration. In the FDA clinical trial, approximately 2/3 of physicians and almost 80% of patients appreciated a noticeable improvement in the lips almost 1 year following treatment and a touch-up. It is important to note that the lips are a very active area (like around the month) and lip enhancement may last closer to 6-12 months in “real-life” use.

Does Restylane Kysse look natural in the lips?

Restylane Kysse integrates into the area of placement extremely well, lending this filler to a very natural result. Dr. Binhlam expertly places this lip filler to individual patient needs, always striving for lip enhancement that addresses aging changes, enhances beautiful features, and restores lip fullness, symmetry, and proportion.

What makes Restylane Kysse different from other hyaluronic acid fillers?

Restylane Kysse is the third Restylane filler product to use XpresHAn technology. This technology imparts flexibility and structure to the filler. In areas such as the lips, flexibility and support allow the filler to look natural with motion such as eating or talking. XpresHAn technology means that Restylane Kysse blends well with the lip tissue, and has long-lasting results. In the FDA trial, over 60% of study subjects had no side effects following placement of Restylane Kysse in the lips, and swelling is typically mild following injection.

How much downtime is there following Restylane Kysse treatment?

There is typically mild to minimal swelling following Restylane Kysse placement in the lips. While individual results may vary, most patients experience minimal to mild swelling for a day or two. Most patients can resume daily social activities on the same day.

As with any injectable dermal filler, there is a chance of bruising. Dr. Binhlam suggests curtailing usage of blood thinners (if possible) and alcohol for 7 days prior to filler injections to lessen bruising.

What is the cost of Restylane Kysse?

The price of Restylane Kysse ranges by the amount of lip restoration to be accomplished. Typical price ranges for Restylane Kysse placement by Dr. Binhlam is $875 per syringe.

What is lip injection with Restylane Kysse like? Does Kysse hurt?

Lips are one of the more sensitive facial areas to address. Dr. Binhlam and his team take appropriate measures to minimize discomfort during lip treatment including numbing cream, ice, and more.

Discomfort is mild during Restylane Kysse filler placement. Restylane Kysse is supplied with lidocaine already mixed into the hyaluronic acid filler itself, making the area numb as the mouth area is treated.

What are the possible side effects of Restylane Kysse?

In the clinical trial, over 60% of patients receiving Restylane Kysse for lip enhancement had no side effects following treatment. Adverse events are typically mild in nature. The most common and expected possible side effects include swelling and bruising. Like any injectable filler, there is a chance of other possible side effects including pain or soreness at the injection site, or allergic reaction. Serious complications, such as vessel compromise, stroke, or blindness is exceedingly rare but theoretically possible.
