What to Know Before Opting for Lip Enhancement with Restylane®

Featured Image

There's no denying that having full lips is one of today's hottest trends — and one that doesn't seem to be slowing anytime soon, with more and more people each year turning to lip fillers to plump their pouts. Among the most popular fillers used for lip enhancement is Restylane, which offers strikingly natural results that can last for up to a year in many cases. At Ben Schultz, M.D., board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin D. Schultz and our experienced aesthetic team perform Restylane lip fillers to help patients transform a thin, lifeless mouth and send their confidence soaring. If you're thinking about lip fillers, consider the helpful information here about Restylane for thin lips — including how treatment works, when your results will be visible, and more.

Are fillers the best way to get bigger lips?

If you follow social media influencers and celebrities, you've likely seen the magic that can happen with makeup — giving people the illusion of having larger lips by contouring and other techniques. However, this illusion does not actually make the lips fuller and requires constant reapplication to re-create the look. Likewise, over-the-counter lip-plumping glosses and products are typically ineffective, temporary, or produce only a subtle effect — with some actually causing unwanted side effects like burning, stinging, or itching. Finally, lip augmentation with implants is an option. Still, many patients agree that injectable lip fillers offer the most ideal solution for plumping up their pout due to:

  • Convenience
  • Instantly visible results
  • Minimal side effects
  • Customizable results
  • Long-lasting results
  • No incisions, sutures, or scarring

In particular, Restylane Kysse is a widely used dermal filler for lip plumping, thanks to its natural look and feel.

Why should I use Restylane for my lips?

The Restylane collection of fillers — including Restylane Kysse for lip enhancement — contains hyaluronic acid (HA) as one of its primary ingredients. Like the HA that occurs naturally in the body and skin, the HA in Restylane makes the filler soft and flexible, allowing it to move with facial expressions and even feel more natural to the touch compared with some other filler products. Because of this, Restylane lip filler results are often considered some of the most natural-looking and -feeling.

How soon does Restylane start working in the lips?

One of the most exciting things about lip fillers is that patients can see immediate results as soon as the filler is injected. Still, it is important to keep in mind that some bruising, swelling, and firmness may be present for up to 1 – 2 weeks. A cold compress and other techniques can help to resolve these mild side effects. Once post-filler swelling subsides, patients should be able to enjoy a natural-looking transformation for up to 6 – 9 months — or even a year in some cases — before repeat Restylane injections may be needed.
