Many women wish to enhance naturally thin lips or restore lost lip volume. Restylane Kysse is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that improves lip size and minimizes the appearance of perioral lines found above the upper lip. Kysse offers a natural look and feel, and the filler is formulated with XpresHAn technology for excellent integration with your tissues that maintains natural movement and expression. Restylane Kysse can give you plump, supple lips for up to one year.
Dr. Kevin Bounds offers Restylane Kysse at Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach and will customize your lip filler treatment to give you long-lasting lip enhancement.
How Does Restylane Kysse Work to Increase Lip Volume?
This injectable gel is made with hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a type of sugar found naturally throughout your body’s connective tissues, particularly in the skin, eyes and joints. It’s a transparent, gooey material that binds with water to maintain moisture in your tissues. Your body produces less HA as you get older, contributing to the formation of lines and wrinkles and loss of facial volume, including thinning lips.
Fillers that use HA restore lost volume by introducing reformulated HA into the skin and lips. HA has been used to improve joint pain from arthritis and for other medical purposes for years. Restylane Kysse uses a concentrated form of HA to add volume and elasticity with more moisture for smooth, luscious lips.
Kysse can enhance the color and texture of your lips and offers flexible movement with its cross-linked HA formula.
Can Restylane Kysse Reduce Lines and Wrinkles Around the Mouth?
Restylane Kysse can be used to reduce perioral lines. These wrinkles are found above your upper lip and extend from the border of your mouth, and they may appear as fine lines that deepen over time and are challenging to cover up. Restylane Kysse fills in these wrinkles by adding volume and fullness to the tissues for smooth, youthful skin.
If you have moderate to severe marionette lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward your chin or nasolabial folds that extend from your nose to your mouth, another dermal filler may address these concerns.
What Should I Expect During My Restylane Kysse Treatment?
Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved for adults over 21. The lip filler contains lidocaine to ease any discomfort you may feel during treatment. Your appointment will likely take less than an hour at our Virginia Beach office, and Dr. Bounds will skillfully inject Restylane Kysse into your lips and/or upper lip area to temporarily add fullness.
When Will I See Results from Restylane Kysse?
You will notice an immediate increase in volume after your Restylane Kysse treatment, but it will take time for your results to settle, with the best results around two weeks after your treatment. Clinical trials for Restylane Kysse showed 88 percent of participants enjoyed increased fullness and volume in their lips eight weeks after their treatment, with 94 percent reporting smoother perioral lines above the lips.
You can enjoy fuller, more vibrant lips and reduced wrinkles for up to one year, and maintenance treatments can help you keep your luscious and youthful lips.
Is There a Recovery Period for Lip Fillers?
There’s no downtime required after your Restylane Kysse treatment or any injectable. After your appointment, you may experience some swelling, redness, bruising and other short-term side effects. These reactions are typically mild and go away in the weeks following your lip filler treatment.
