What Is Restylane Kysse Lip Filler?

And What Makes It So Special?

These days, many of us are letting our normal beauty and wellness routines slide — our roots are growing out, and our favorite yoga pants have become our at-home uniform. Amid the pandemic, we’re not seeing many faces or going out much. But during these days of isolation, it’s more important than ever to focus on what makes us feel our very best — which often means looking our best too. And it doesn’t hurt to wow your coworkers on those Zoom video calls, either.

Here at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa, we’re so excited about Restylane Kysse, the brand-new lip filler that’s being touted as a total game changer for a plump and incredibly natural-looking pout. Keep reading to find out why it’s the new favorite lip filler on the block, and why it’ll have you running to Viva.

What Makes Restylane Such a Shining Star?

Restylane Kysse lip filler logoSwiss pharmaceutical giant Galderma — makers of the incredibly popular line of Restylane fillers — recently unveiled their newest filler, Restylane Kysse. As the world’s largest independent dermatology company, they’re already well known for their line of fillers that deliver natural-looking results. But their latest release is also their most impressive lip filler to date.

Restylane Kysse — adorably pronounced “kiss” — is their brand-new FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler designed specifically for lip injections, both to add fullness and to smooth wrinkles above and around the mouth. In fact, experts are confident that Restylane Kysse is set to become the leading lip filler. Here’s why.

No one will be able to tell you’ve had fillers — unless you tell them yourself.

This star-power lip filler is specially formulated with smaller particles than other Restylane fillers, which balances its structure and flexibility. The hyaluronic acid is also bound to itself, which means it seamlessly fuses with each and every microscopic movement of your lips, mirroring your own movements as naturally as your own skin. Whether you’re talking, laughing, smiling, kissing, or frowning, Restylane Kysse is molded to your unique lip shape and volume, making it look and feel as organic as ever.

Previous patients were in love with their results.

Studies from Galderma’s clinical trials with Restylane Kysse showed that it provided enhanced fullness of the lips and also reduced the appearance of lines above the mouth. Eight weeks after treatment, 90% of patients were completely satisfied with the results. More specifically, when it came to the shape of their upper and lower lips, patients were overwhelmingly happy with their new pout — 93% and 95% respectively.

And it wasn’t just the patients who loved what they saw. The study also polled the loved ones of patients, and 90% of partners were happy with the results of the Restylane Kysse treatment —  proving that the natural look and feel was also virtually undetected by those who knew their faces best.

Restylane Kysse requires a much smaller amount than other fillers.

A study from Galderma’s research team showed that a significantly reduced amount of Restylane Kysse was necessary to increase fullness of the lips when compared to other fillers: 1.82 mL vs. 2.24 mL, to be exact.

It’s the first FDA-approved lip filler to use XpresHAn Technology. 

Restylane Kysse takes the cake as the first hyaluronic acid lip filler that’s specifically designed for the lips using XpresHAn Technology, also known as Optimal Balance Technology. XpresHAn is a manufacturing process that helps regulate the degree of HA crosslinking. This creates a smooth gel that integrates into the skin for a softer and more natural expression of motion, rather than a firm or structured appearance.

The results are long-lasting.

Clinical studies show that Restylane Kysse lasts up to a year, which is considerably longer than the typical six- to nine-month lifespan of other HA fillers. Of course, shorter-term results may be best for you, depending on your own needs and desires. However, the longer-lasting results of Restylane Kysse are great for patients with busy schedules who may not be able to get to the spa as frequently as they would like.
