The next best thing in lip fillers is here. Restylane Kysse is the newest FDA-approved lip filler, and this dermal filler was created strictly for the lips. The innovative technology behind Kysse offers more natural, longer-lasting results. At Mirabile M.D., we want to share with you what makes Kysse different than other dermal fillers and what to expect should you choose to try it yourself.

What Is Kysse?

Restylane Kysse is the first hyaluronic acid (HA) filler created specifically for the lips. Galderma, a global dermatology company, is the creator of Kysse dermal filler. While Kysse has been used in other countries, the new lip filler was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The Restylane line of HA dermal fillers includes many different treatments, including products that smooth wrinkles and smile lines, lift and add volume to the checks, and augment the lips. The Kysse fillers are unlike any other product, however, because it uses a unique formula to suit the flexibility of lips.

How Does Kysse Work?

Restylane Kysse uses XpresHAn Technology. This technology alters the way hyaluronic acid binds after it is injected into the lips, making it different than other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Traditionally, these fillers involve hyaluronic acid being injected into the lips, or in some cases, other areas of the body like the cheeks or hands. After it is injected, the hyaluronic acid binds to itself and stretches within the body.

Kysse acts differently because the XpresHAn Technology allows the hyaluronic acid to mold to the lip’s tissue after it is injected. The Restylane particles are smaller than other fillers. The small size combined with the XpresHAn Technology allows the hyaluronic acid to become a part of your lips, rather than something inside of them. Additionally, the small filler particles mean that there is less risk of developing lumps or other side effects.

What Are the Benefits of Kysse?

The clinical trials have proven that Kysse fillers offer many benefits. This lip augmentation treatment provides lip fullness that both feels and looks more natural. While Kysse offers results of fuller-looking lips, there are also other benefits to choosing this lip augmentation option.

Many patients choose to get lip fillers because, in addition to augmenting the lips, they improve the appearance of the lines above the mouth. Kysse also does this but in a more natural way.

Unlike other lip fillers that last three to six months, the results of Kysse injections have lasted up to a year in most patients. The clinical trial of Kysse proved that the treatment is safe and provides patients with consistent results.

In addition to the hyaluronic acid, the Kysse injections contain lidocaine, a medication used to numb the area to decrease pain and reduce discomfort. This, combined with topical numbing cream, allows for a more comfortable experience.

Lastly, clinical trials found that Kysse providers can use less product while offering the same results. Combined with the longer-lasting results of Kysse, this means that it is a more cost-effective option for patients.

What Are the Side Effects of Kysse Fillers?

In the clinical trials, Kysse’s results were resoundingly positive. However, like with any other dermal fillers, there are some side effects that patients should be aware of before getting Kysse fillers. The most common side effects are mild and may include swelling, bruising, tenderness, and itching. However, these should subside soon after receiving the injections. Also, the lidocaine medication will minimize any pain following the treatment.

It is also crucial to only receive Kysse fillers from licensed professionals who specialize in cosmetic injectable treatments. This is the easiest way to avoid any severe side effects.

What to Expect When Getting Kysse Fillers?

Like most dermal filler treatments, appointments for Kysse will typically last between 30 and 45 minutes. One of our nurse injectors will apply a topical numbing cream, allowing for a pain-free experience. We will also provide you will post-care instructions. Most patients will see results within several days.
