Restylane Kysse is a clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar, found in the human body. Restylane Kysse is crosslinked with BDDE, an ingredient that helps form a network of HA to provide a gel filler that lasts longer. It is injected into the lips and the lines around the upper lip to temporarily add fullness to the lips and help smooth the wrinkles around the upper lip (perioral lines) for up to 12 months.

The Restylane Kysse Procedure
One of our expert injectors will begin by examining your face and discussing whether Restylane Kysse is the right treatment for you. They will also review what you should expect during and after the procedure, along with any possible side effects that you may experience. Your photos will also be taken.
Prior to treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and you will receive a topical anesthetic, as either a cream or ointment, to numb the area where you will receive your injection.
Using an ultrafine needle, your provider will inject Restylane Kysse into your lips or perioral area to add fullness. The product contains 0.3% lidocaine to reduce pain during injection, so after your first injection, the area around your injection will continue to numb. The anesthetic part of Restylane Kysse has been shown to significantly reduce the pain and discomfort that may occur with a dermal filler gel injection.
After the injection is complete, your provider may gently massage the area that was treated to ensure the dermal filler gel is distributed evenly and looks natural.

We will provide you with an ice pack immediately after your treatment to reduce swelling. We recommend avoiding touching the treated area within six hours following treatment. Avoiding taking aspirin, NSAID, St. John’s Wort, blood thinners and high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. Lastly, we recommend minimizing strenuous exercise and exposure to excessive heat for the first 24 hours after treatment.
