Restylane Kysse is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. It is designed to enhance the lip volume and minimize the appearance of fine lines above the mouth with a natural look and feel, and has also been shown to improve texture and lip color, and allows patients to maintain their natural-looking expressions.
Kysse is a great treatment option for people with lips that have thinned due to the aging process or for those seeking natural-looking, softer, fuller lips. Results are clinically proven to last up to 1 year.
What results can Kysse provide?
Restylane Kysse makes the lips appear fuller and more youthful. Specifically, the filler works to add volume to the lips providing a plumping effect while also smoothing away lip lines. Kysse has been FDA approved to augment or enhance the lips.
Where can Kysse be used?
Kysse is approved for use in the lips. The filler is not approved by the FDA for use in any other facial areas.
How does Kysse work?
Kysse uses hyaluronic acid to enhance the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring bodily substance with the ability to bind up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, causing an expansion in volume when injected under the skin. This volume increase also corrects fine lip lines that occur on the surface of the lips due to natural aging.
What make Kysse different from other lip fillers?
Using “XpresHAn Technology™”, a proprietary advancement developed by Galderma that enables the hyaluronic acid filler to bind more naturally lip tissue, Kysse is able to naturally stretch and move during common mouth movements like smiling or kissing.
How is a Kysse treatment performed?
Kysse is administered through a series of smooth flowing injections through a very fine syringe. The procedure is quick and fully customizable, the exact amount of Kysse that will be injected will depend on the state of the patient’s pre-treatment lips as well as their desired end result.
