Full, luscious lips speak to an attractive, youthful appearance. They enhance your smile and make you look younger. Unfortunately, as we age, the skin between the upper lip and the nose starts to lengthen, while the upper lip becomes thinner, and turns inward and downward. You can observe this when watching older newscasters on TV: when they speak you primarily see their bottom teeth as opposed to their upper teeth, which is the precise opposite of young people. To combat the aging appearance of thin lips-which can also run in the family via DNA-Miami patients turn to either permanent lip implants or dermal fillers to plump their lips.
Patients who come to our Miami cosmetic surgery practice for lip plumping are ecstatic with their results! Restylane® Kysse creates very natural-looking lips, as if Mother Nature kissed you herself!
Lip Filler Options
There are essentially two options for plumper, fuller lips: fillers, such as Restylane® Kysse, which are temporary, or silastic implants, which are permanent. Although both Juvéderm® and Restylane® are also used to plump lips, we use Restylane® Kysse because it was specifically created as a lip filler. Like other dermal fillers, a Restylane® Kysse treatment takes very little time in our office, so you can receive Restylane® Kysse during a lunch break and immediately get back to your day. Unlike other dermal fillers, only Kysse™ reduces wrinkles on the lips! Furthermore, results show that Kysse™ results last up to a year with optimal treatment, compared with other dermal fillers that last only 6-9 months.
What is Restylane® Kysse™?
Kysse™ is a gel implant (dermal filler) made of crosslinked hyaluronic acid (HA). This crosslinking results in a filler that not only enhances the fullness of the lips but their flexibility, softness, and natural movement as well. Kysse™ also includes lidocaine as a numbing agent to minimize discomfort during the injection.
Is Restylane® Kysse Right For You?
Healthy adults, 21 years or older, who desire plumper lips and who do not have a history of any severe allergic reactions, or allergic reactions to HA fillers or lidocaine may be ideal candidates for Restylane® Kysse injections.

Your Restylane® Kysse Consultation
As with any cosmetic treatment, your consultation appointment is your opportunity to ask any questions about Restylane® Kysse. Your aesthetician or cosmetic surgeon will also ask you questions about any allergic reactions you may have had in the past.
The Restylane® Kysse Procedure
After applying a cream anesthetic for about 15-20 mins, the lips are cleaned in preparation for injection, which is tailored to address your areas of concern. An ice pack will be given for you to hold on your lips for a few minutes before you leave our Miami cosmetic surgery office to go about your day.
Recovery after Restylane® Kysse
There are no specific recovery issues associated with Kysse™ other than some discomfort at the injection sites and, in some patients, minor swelling that dissipates within a couple of days.
Results of Restylane® Kysse
You will immediately see a plumping of your lips with optimal plumping that, according to studies of Kysse™, will last for approximately one year. Results appear natural and you should see enhanced texture, color, and volume in your lips.
