Restylane Kysse

Featured Image

Restylane is a natural hydraulic-based cosmetic filler that helps smooth your wrinkles and plump your cheeks and lips. It is the first and only cosmetic filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, a substance that already exists in the human body to restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age our face naturally loses subcutaneous fat. In this condition, the facial muscles are working to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. As a result, the facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to the loss of facial volume. 

Restylane offers a number of solutions that vary, depending on the needs of the patient. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane clings to your skin and the water in the acid provides volume. The acid also attracts more water, helping to preserve the recently added volume. There are several kinds of Restylane that can be used for different areas of your face including includes lips, cheeks, facial folds, and wrinkles. Restylane Kysse is crosslinked with BDDE, an ingredient that helps form a network of HA hyaluronic acid that has been modified to last longer in the body than the naturally occurring HA. Restylane Kysse 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).

Restylane Kysse Candidates will receive great benefits from their injections. Those include:

• Plump thin lips

• Soften facial creases and wrinkles

• Reconstruct contour deformities in the face

• Enhance shallow contours

• Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids

Restylane Kysse is injected with an ultrafine needle into your lips to add fullness. It can also be injected into the skin above your lips to help smooth the wrinkles around your upper lip (perioral lines). The procedure is performed by giving you the first injection, then pausing to allow the anesthetic that is part of Restylane Kysse to continue to numb the area around your injection. 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.

Restylane injections aren’t permanent fillers for facial aging and those ongoing treatments will be needed for long-term results. In order to maintain the best results, you’ll need more rounds of injections as suggested by Dr. Rafi Bidros our cosmetic plastic surgeon at MyBodyMD Plastic Surgery Houston, Texas.
