Restylane Kysse®

Restylane Kysse® is a newly FDA-approved lip filler with the potential to change the dermal filler market for the better. Lips are the most mobile part of our facial anatomy, and as such, there’s a balancing act a filler must achieve. A lip filler must be flexible for the most natural results while also staying firm so enhanced volume is not lost.

The difference is more than the cross-linking of Restylane Kysse®, though that’s part of it. Restylane Kysse® gives injection specialists more control over the final result because the gel’s integrity is not lost in the flexibility necessary to sculpt beautiful lips that don’t fall into the “duck lips” trap. Restylane Kysse® volumizes lips, smooths away fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and with ExpresHAn Technology™, Restylane Kysse® integrates with tissues for better plumpness and shape. Your lips have never looked more naturally kissable.


  • Men and women who are concerned about the fine lines and wrinkles, sometimes called smoker’s lines, around the mouth and lips.
  • Men and women interested in increasing lip volume to enhance their appearance, smile, and confidence.


Restylane Kysse® is administered the way most dermal fillers are, through injections in the treatment area. Because less filler is required due to Restylane Kysse’s® superior structure, you may require fewer injections than with other fillers, and Kysse® is proven to last longer than other fillers that break down quickly because of how much motion the lips and mouth perform in a day. Restylane Kysse® offers natural, beautiful results for up to 1 year, up from the 6-9 months promised by competitive lip enhancers. Galderma, Restylane Kysse’s® maker, reports 78% of patients to continue to be satisfied at the one year mark. It’s the XpresHAn Technology™ that makes Restylane Kysse® look so natural while maintaining the structural integrity of the filler, which can also be used to minimize deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the mouth.

Needles aren’t for everyone, which is why we offer an anesthesia option called Pronox, to help you alleviate any discomfort you experience. You control Pronx, which is an inhaled analgesia which takes effect in seconds. Immediate relief from anxiety and discomfort is entirely in your hands. We also offer topical numbing, BLT, with 3 agents to help alleviate pain.

Risks, Recovery, and Results with Restylane Kysse®

With any cosmetic procedure, there are risks, but Restylane Kysse® is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, which the body naturally produces to give the skin nutrients and hydration. This makes Restylane products extremely well-tolerated by even the most sensitive of patients. There is virtually no downtime with Restylane Kysse®. Any injection site tenderness or mild bruising from the treatment is often resolved within a few hours or a couple of days.

Your results with Restylane Kysse® are immediately visible, with lips plump and natural-looking. Fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth are just gone, and if you’re treating deep lines, such as nasolabial folds or lines from your mouth down your chin—often called parentheses and marionette lines—you’ll notice an immediate reduction in their depth. Your skin takes what the HA molecules offer in terms of hydration, becoming supple while at the same time, the strategically placed gel offers the firmness needed to keep those lines from getting worse. Your skin gets a break and wrinkles smooth away almost entirely.
