The team at Gendler Dermatology is pleased to offer Restylane Kysse, which has recently been approved in the United States – an all-new hyaluronic acid filler designed specifically for the lips, able to add texture, color, and volume to your smile.
As we age, we often lose volume and color in the lips, and the gradual loss of collagen and elastin in the skin causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear on the face, particularly around the mouth. If you wish to bring a youthful appearance back to your mouth or are seeking a more voluminous smile, Kysse could be the perfect solution for you.
Restylane Kysse is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler, designed with XpresHAn Technology™’s innovative cross-linking gel – which changes the way hyaluronic acid binds inside the lips. Designed specifically for the movement of lips, Kysse integrates with the tissues where it’s injected, and molds to become one with the lips for an extremely natural look.
Hyaluronic acid itself is a naturally occurring substance in the body, and the injection of this provides an instant boost to the lips while promoting the production of collagen.
Restylane Kysse is used exclusively for the lips to add volume and definition to the lips, as well as enhance color and texture on both the upper and lower lip. It is also used for the upper perioral lines – the fine-to-deep lines that occur around the upper lip.
Whether you wish for a subtle, natural volume increase, color enhancement, smoothing of the lips, reduction of lines above the mouth, or all of the above, Restylane Kysse may be an ideal option for you. Due to its natural, refined makeup, it’s also an excellent option for those with sensitive lips or having a filler for the first time. However, Kysse may not be suitable for you if:
At your consultation at her New York office, Dr. Gendler will conduct a thorough assessment with you, and discuss your goals and expectations. From this, she will produce a personalized treatment plan, detailing which treatment or treatments she recommends, as well as any suggested products for use at home.
Your Restylane Kysse appointment will last from 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of injections to be administered. Like some other hyaluronic acid fillers, Kysse has a small amount of lidocaine in it, which helps to reduce any discomfort, though most patients report minimal levels of pain.
Kysse has no downtime, and you will be able to return to work or most other normal activity immediately after your treatment.
It may take a few days for your lips to settle into their new natural shape, and you can expect your results to last for approximately 10 months, even up to a year.
Craft your dream lips with precise, targeted results, and a beautiful, natural new look. At Gendler Dermatology, we strive to provide the best possible experience for patients, and give the results they need to feel comfortable, confident, and radiant.

Restylane Kysse can last up to 12 months, though this depends on the patient, as everyone naturally metabolizes fillers at different rates.
Both are effective and safe hyaluronic acid fillers, and it can come down to personal preference as to whether one is better than the other. It is noted that Restylane Kysse feels more natural due to its cross-linking gel, whereas Juvederm can provide more volume.
Restylane Kysse is FDA approved, and completely safe. Like any cosmetic procedure, there are rare but possible complications that can occur, however, these can be managed or mitigated depending on the skill of the specialist applying the injections.
Similar to other injectable fillers, you may experience some slight side effects after treatment, which fade in days. These include:
