What is Restylane® Kysse

Are you unhappy with your dry, thin, or cracked lips? Do you wish they were luscious, hydrated, and fuller? Most people opt for lip-fillers and injections to enhance their lips. But most lip-fillers leave you with swollen lips and only work for a few short weeks, necessitating multiple sessions with the aesthetician.

Restylane® Kysse is the longest-lasting lip filler injection available. Restylane® Kysse is an injectable gel that instantly fills out your lips, making them seem full, soft, supple, and hydrated. Most importantly, a single session can see you through up to 12 months.

Our San Jose Restylane® Kysse treatment is a gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring fluid that adds volume and moisture to your skin and lips. Hyaluronic acid is frequently used in cosmetic procedures to make your skin look youthful, taut, and supple — and now, you can also use it to achieve a pair of luscious lips.

What does Restylane® Kysse Correct?

Restylane® Kysse is generally used to treat lips because they’re most likely to grow coarse, cracked, or dry, under constant exposure to elements like the sun and wind. When your doctor injects Restylane Kysse into your lips, it fills out and smoothens the wrinkles. However, Restylane Kysse® may also be used around the upper lips or regions around the eyes to get rid of crow’s feet or the wrinkles above your lips.

Does Restylane® Kysse Hurt?

Restylane® Kysse is a completely painless and comfortable procedure. The Restylane® Kysse gel contains 0.3% lidocaine, a strong anesthetic component that reduces pain during the injection. As such, you may feel a slight tingling sensation, perhaps numbness, but you don’t feel any pain or discomfort.

What are the Advantages of Restylane® Kysse?


Restylane® Kysse fills out your lips and the borders of your lips, adding depth and volume, making them appear fuller.


Your lips appear dry and chapped when they don’t have enough naturally-occurring moisture. Restylane® Kysse complements the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, rejuvenating your lips to make them look hydrated and supple.

Natural Appearance:

Unlike many other surgical procedures, Restylane® Kysse is made of naturally-occurring components to ensure the results also look natural. No one will know you’ve had fillers.


The Restylane® Kysse contains an anesthetic component that numbs your lips upon contact with the needle. As such, you don’t feel any pain or discomfort.


Restylane® Kysse is one of the safest lip-fillers with a negligible risk of side effects and minimal (if any) swelling after the treatment.


Clinical studies have shown that a single Restylane® Kysse session adds volume, depth, and moisture to your lips for 6 to 12 months. As such, you don’t have to shuffle to and from the cosmetic center regularly, once or twice a year is enough.

What Happens During the Restylane® Kysse Treatment?

Restylane® Kysse is one of the simplest and quickest cosmetic treatments for full lips. The doctor will inject the Restylane® Kysse gel into your lips using an ultrafine needle. Following that, they may also inject the regions around your lips. With that, you’ll have a pair of beautiful lips.

What Happens After the Restylane® Kysse Treatment?

After the Restylane Kysse injection, your doctor will provide some post-treatment guidelines — basic dos and don’ts. Your doctor may also recommend a slight touch-up for optimal results.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
