What is it and what makes it different?
A hyaluronic acid filler recently FDA-approved in the US for the lips is now here! Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our skin and due to several factors like sun exposure, aging and more, its amounts can significantly decrease and lead to a lack of volume and hydration in the
lips and surrounding skin.
Galderma’s Restylane Kysse is designed to achieve soft kissable lips, like its namesake. It uses Galderma’s trademarked and proprietary XpresHAn technology of unique cross-linking
hyaluronic acid which makes the gel much more able to seamlessly blend with the lips and have “natural expression in motion” instead of a very firm or structured look, leading to lips that not only look more natural but also feel more natural. Restylane Kysse is the first and only hyaluronic acid lip filler that is FDA-approved to utilize this technology.
How long does it last?
Studies and clinical trials are showing that Restylane Kysse can last up to a year with other hyaluronic acid fillers lasting around the six to nine month mark and onwards depending on an individual’s metabolism of the filler.
What can I expect immediately after the treatment? Restylane Kysse’s lip enhancing results will be visible after one treatment session. Immediately
after, the lips will swell about 20% more which is important to keep in mind when waiting for your final results. After the lips have settled, you can then decide if you need more filler for your desired outcome. The procedure does not have any downtime, so you are free to carry on with
your normal daily routine after.
Will I have any side effects?
Swelling and minimal bruising are very common immediately after treatment and should resolve shortly after. Bumps that you can feel in the lips are also common. A great way of reducing them and keeping the lips soft and supple is by massaging or rolling the lips with your fingers (don’t
worry, this will not damage or do any harm to your filler, only enhance the results!)
