Do you desire a plumper, more youthful pout? Enhancing your lips is a great way to feel more confident and put your best face forward.
One of the most common cosmetic procedures in the world is lip augmentation. Also known as lip filler, lip augmentation can enhance the size, shape, and texture of your lips to give you a more visually pleasing pout.
When performing lip augmentation, Dr. Fischer uses two different hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to achieve the patient’s desired result. One is Restylane Kysse and the other is Restylane Silk. While both are very similar, there are a few key differences.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved substances that can be injected into soft tissue to reduce fine lines and create a smoother, more plump appearance.
Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance already found naturally in the body - not a harmful acid! High concentrations of hyaluronic acid are present in the eyes and joints. However, when injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid can reduce the signs of aging.
What Is Restylane Kysse?
Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that has been developed with XpresHAn Technology. This allows for more flexible movement and volume that looks natural. It enhances the texture and color of the lips but still allows for a full range of motion. Restylane Kysse is the first lip filler designed with this technology.
What Is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is an FDA-approved product that has been developed specifically for subtle lip augmentations and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth. It is ideal for restoring and enhancing lips in a softer, more precise way because of its formulation.
Restylane Silk is made of gel that is smoother and smaller than other Restylane products. Using an ultrafine needle, Restylane Silk is injected into the lip and around the mouth with enhanced precision and accuracy.
Restylane Kysse vs. Restylane Silk: The Main Differences
While the two are both hyaluronic acid injectables, Restylane Kysse and Restylane Silk have a few distinct differences. Knowing the differences makes it easier to determine which product is better for a patient’s specific wishes.
- Restylane Kysse is a great choice for patients who want to maintain the natural movement of their lips and the skin surrounding their mouth. Thanks to the XpresHAn formula, you’ll retain ultimate flexibility if you choose this option.
- Restylane Kysse subtly enhances the color of lips and can smooth and improve overall lip texture.
- Restylane Silk is formulated with a smaller gel making this option ideal for patients who want subtle results It is administered with a fine needle, allowing Dr. Fischer to provide accurate and precise injections.
- This means that Restylane Silk is a better option for patients who want to resolve fine lines and wrinkles in the skin around their mouth because of the small hyaluronic acid particles in its formula.
