What is Restylane Kysse?

Joining the rest of the Restylane® family of fillers, Restylane Kysse is the new FDA-approved dermal filler exclusively designed for the lips and fine lines above the mouth, known as smokers or lipstick lines. Made of hyaluronic acid (HA), Restylane Kysse is formulated to act as your body’s own naturally produced HA, creating a fuller set of lips without looking overdone. It utilizes XpresHAn Technology that allows for more advanced tissue integration and natural expression in motion, helping to seamlessly fill the lips without the heavy feeling that some patients encounter after an injection. Furthermore, its unique cross-linking technology that complements the chemical bonds within the skin makes Restylane Kysse safe, effective, and long-lasting.

What Does Restylane Kysse Treat?

Dermatologists inject Restylane Kysse into the lips and the upper perioral rhytids (lines around the upper lip) to temporarily add fullness to the lips and smooth away perioral lines. Typically, patients who undergo a Restylane Kysse treatment can achieve the following:

  • Fuller lips
  • Shapelier lips
  • Improved lip symmetry
  • Enhanced lip texture
  • Greater lip definition
  • More lip color
  • Smoother skin around the upper lip

Who is a Candidate for Restylane Kysse in NYC?

Dermatologists generally recommend Restylane Kysse to patients who want a subtle, natural volume increase, reduction of lines above the mouth, smoother lips, or color enhancement. Due to its natural and refined composition, it is also an excellent option for those with sensitive lips or patients having their first lip filler treatment. Restylane Kysse is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our SOHO medical spa to find out if Restylane Kysse is the right choice for you.

What to Expect During a Treatment Session in New York City

Most patients find the procedure to be quick and relatively comfortable. A treatment session can last approximately 5-30 minutes.

Restylane Kysse Questions & Answers

Q: Are there any possible side effects from Restylane Kysse?

A: Restylane Kysse side effects are uncommon and if they do occur, are only temporary. Some patients might experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites which should resolve within a day or two. This filler tends to cause less swelling than other lip fillers due to its unique cross-linking technology.

Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved. In the hands of our board-certified dermatologists, injections are always done safely and effectively.

Q: How long will my results last?

A: You will see immediate improvement after your Restylane Kysse treatment, which is clinically proven to last for 6-9 months. However, many patients experience results that last for up to a year or longer. You can maintain your refreshed appearance indefinitely with regularly scheduled treatment sessions.


Q: Does a Restylane Kysse treatment hurt?

A: Dermatologists inject Restylane Kysse using a very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula. Its formula contains the anesthetic lidocaine to enhance your comfort throughout your procedure. Most patients find the procedure to be quick and relatively comfortable. If you are concerned about discomfort during treatment, you may talk to your doctor about the application of a topical numbing cream or ice before your procedure.

Q: What is recovery from a Restylane Kysse treatment like?

A: There is no recovery time after a Restylane Kysse treatment. Most patients return to regular activities immediately following their treatment. Any mild swelling that occurs should be temporary and not be overly noticeable. Typically, bruising occurs because of the needle’s contact with the skin and will resolve within a day or two.

The natural deterioration of underlying bone and soft tissue leaves a hollowed, aged appearance. Fillers injected below the skin surface can correct age-related volume loss.
