Galderma receives FDA approval for Restylane® Kysse, a new hyaluronic acid (HA) Filler specifically designed and indicated to add fullness to the lips and help smooth the wrinkles above the mouth
New Restylane HA Filler lasts for up to 1 year1,2 using XpresHAn Technology™
Fort Worth, TX – (May 5, 2020) – Galderma announces that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Restylane® Kysse for lip augmentation and the correction of upper perioral rhytids (wrinkles around upper lips) in adults over the age of 21.1 Restylane Kysse is the first hyaluronic acid (HA) filler specifically indicated for the lips using XpresHAn Technology™ (pronounced ex-ˈspre-shan’) globally referred to as the OBT technology (Optimal Balance Technology. Restylane Kysse is proven to last for up to 1 year1,2 with high levels of patient satisfaction for people with lips that have changed due to the aging process or for those seeking natural-looking, fuller lips.3
“Restylane Kysse is a new lip filler that offers key attributes both providers and their patients desire in a lip injection – high satisfaction, consistent results, and a proven clinical-safety profile,” said Alisa Lask, General Manager and Vice President of the U.S. Aesthetic Business at Galderma.3,4,5 “We are confident that Restylane Kysse will become a leading li filler in the dynamic U.S. market.”
XpresHAn Technology™ products have demonstrated natural-looking results for patients with dynamic facial wrinkles.6 Restylane Kysse uses this technology to provide high levels of patient improvement* with 78% of trial patients reporting they were still satisfied with their results after 1 year.3 A lower amount of Restylane Kysse (1.82 mL) was needed to show an improvement in lip fullness** compared to the comparator (2.24 mL) in the Phase 3 trial supporting approval.3 Restylane Kysse was shown to be both safe and well-tolerated.4 It contains lidocaine, a medication used to numb the area to decrease pain and reduce discomfort associated with injections in the lip area.1
“Restylane Kysse is a game changer with a formulation specifically designed to provide excellent outcomes in the lips,” said Dr. Melanie Palm, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon in San Diego, CA and a clinical investigator in the Restylane Kysse phase 3 trial. “This new approval enables me to provide natural-looking results for my patients’ lips that are apparent when they speak, smile or even kiss.” 3,4

Do not use if you have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis), are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid, prone to bleeding, or have a bleeding disorder. The safety of use while pregnant or breastfeeding has not been studied. Tell your doctor if you have a history of scarring or pigmentation disorders as these side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers. Tell your doctor if you are planning other cosmetic treatments (i.e., lasers and chemical peels) as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the injection site.
Tell your doctor if you’re taking medications that lower your body’s immune response or affect bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, as these medications may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site. Using these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete.
The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. The risk of unintentional injection into a blood vessel is small but can occur and could result in serious complications, which may be permanent including, vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
To report a side effect with any Restylane product, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P at 1-855-425-8722.
