Have you always dreamed about having larger, more attractive lips? At H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK, we can use a powerful injectable product called Restylane Kysse to add fullness to your lips and smooth fine lines on your face. You’ll be able to relax during your injections, and your fuller lips will give you a youthful, refreshed appearance.
How Long Does Restylane Kysse Last?
Restylane Kysse is an injectable treatment that will temporarily change the appearance of your lips. We can use this product to plump your thinning lips and fix lines that appear above your upper lip. The duration of these improvements will depend on your lips’ response to your injections, the amount of filler that you received, and other factors. That said, it’s common for your fuller lips to last for up to 12 months.
As you process the ingredients in this dermal filler, your lips will become smaller, and your wrinkles will become more noticeable. If you would like to maintain your voluminous lips and wrinkle-free look, you should receive another set of injections at our office in OK.
Who Is Eligible for This Product?
If you are an adult who wants to change the appearance of your lips, you will probably be eligible for this aesthetic treatment. That said, you’ll need to tell us about all of your medical conditions and allergies before we use this product to transform your appearance. If you have a history of experiencing severe allergic reactions or you have multiple severe allergies, you will not be eligible for this treatment.
In addition, you cannot use this product if you have experienced an allergic reaction to a hyaluronic acid-based product in the past. Further, you should not receive this treatment if you are allergic to anesthetics like lidocaine.
Why Do I Have Thin Lips?
You have fat pads under the surface layers of your skin. These fat pads will affect the appearance of your cheeks, lips, and other facial features. If your relatives have thin lips, you might also have naturally small fat pads in this area of your face. As a result, your lips will look smaller and less voluminous when you are young.
As you get older, your lips will probably begin to lose additional volume. Over time, all of the fat pads in your face will become smaller, and your lips will begin to look thinner. In addition, if you smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol, your lips may lose larger amounts of volume during the later parts of your life. Similarly, drinking inadequate amounts of water or receiving insufficient sleep can negatively impact the appearance of your lips.
How Will This Product Improve My Lips?
This injectable product will use a very gentle ingredient called hyaluronic acid to add fullness to your lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that your skin and other tissues contain. When we inject this dermal filler into your lips, the hyaluronic acid will increase the amount of volume in this part of your face. This ingredient can also smooth the fine lines that have become etched into the skin above your lips.
How Should I Get Ready for My Injections?
Before you receive your injections, you should tell us if you are using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen. In addition, you should let us know if you are taking Vitamin E supplements or St. John’s Wort. Since these medications and supplements could alter your response to your injections, you may need to temporarily stop using these substances.
You should not receive this dermal filler if you have pimples, rashes, or hives that affect the skin around your lips. Further, you should not use this product if you have an active infection, cyst, or skin sores that affect your target area. If you develop any of these issues before your appointment, you should contact us so that we can reschedule your aesthetic treatment.
What Will Happen During My Appointment?
We will smooth away your wrinkles and enhance your lips at our office in Oklahoma City. Since your appointment will usually take less than 30 minutes to complete, you will have plenty of time to run errands, work, and accomplish other tasks during this day. We will start this process by cleaning the skin on your lips. Next, we will use an ultra-fine needle to administer your dermal filler.
This lip filler contains an anesthetic that is called lidocaine. This ingredient will numb the tissues around your injection sites and allow you to relax while we are increasing the size of your lips.
What Rules Will I Be Required To Follow After I Get My Injections?
After we have injected this product into your lips, you will be free to leave our office in OK and drive back to your home or go to your place of work. Although you won’t be required to adjust your work schedule, you will need to follow some easy rules while your lips are adjusting to your dermal filler.
Protect Your Lips
In particular, you should not touch your lips during the six hours. After this point, you can use water and soap to gently clean this part of your face.
Take a Rest
During the next 24 hours, you should not go running, lift heavy weights, or perform other strenuous physical activities. Further, you should not expose your skin to intense sunlight, strong heat, or UV lamps during this time. In addition, we will ask you to stop taking St. John’s Wort, high doses of supplements that contain Vitamin E, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines, and substances that could thin your blood for one week.
Adjust Your Cosmetic Treatments
Receiving this dermal filler can alter your reaction to chemical peels, microneedling treatments, and other cosmetic techniques. If you are interested in receiving a chemical peel or other skin treatment after your injections are complete, you should tell us about these plans. We will let you know when you can begin receiving other aesthetic treatments.
Will My Lips Look Natural After I Use This Injectable Product?
When you started thinking about enhancing your lips, you might have seen images of celebrities or other people who used dermal fillers to add volume to this facial feature. Sometimes, these people will develop very plump lips that look overly dramatic or unnatural. Fortunately, you will not experience these issues when you visit our office in OK for your injectable treatment.
Before we improve the appearance of your lips or wrinkles, we will discuss your personal goals and carefully analyze this facial feature. At this point, you may decide to show us photographs of celebrities or other people with attractive lips. Since these photographs will allow us to understand your cosmetic preferences, your lips will not look artificial or stiff after your treatment is complete. Instead, this facial feature will be soft and youthful-looking.
When Will My Lips Become More Voluminous?
If you are looking forward to seeing improvements in your lips, you’re in luck. This dermal filler will usually create quick changes in the appearance of this facial feature. In general, your lips will look larger, and your skin will become smoother as soon as your injections are complete. That said, your dermal filler will take a little time to settle into your lips, and you will usually achieve the final changes in your appearance after about 14 days have passed.
Can I Use This Filler To Plump My Lips Before a Wedding or Other Important Event?
Although this product will create quick improvements in your lips, you should not receive this treatment right before your wedding day, class reunion, or other significant social events. Instead, you should give your lips time to adjust to this cosmetic treatment. If you would like to achieve the full benefits of this dermal filler by a specific date, you should tell us about this objective during your initial consultation.
Can This Dermal Filler Really Improve the Appearance of My Lips?
In the past, you might have seen advertisements for lipstick, lip balms, and other products that claim to create lasting changes in your appearance. Unfortunately, these beauty products probably will not add significant volume to your lips. Instead, these at-home treatments may cause your lips to become swollen or irritated. In contrast, Restylane Kysse is a powerful filler that has proven results.
During a scientific study, 96% of people said that their lips became fuller after they used this product, and 90% of people’s partners were satisfied with the appearance of their lips.
Can I Combine This Injectable Treatment With Botox?
Botox is an injectable product that we can use to correct fine lines between your eyebrows, wrinkles around your eyes, and other imperfections that form on the upper area of your face. This injectable product will temporarily stop you from making the facial movements that have caused you to develop lines and wrinkles. In general, the effects of this injectable will improve your lines for up to four months.
If you are interested in plumping your lips and smoothing wrinkles on your face, you might be a good candidate for a Botox-Filler facelift. During this treatment, we can use a combination of Botox and Restylane products to transform your look.
Improve Your Lips
Adding volume to your lips will improve the balance between your facial features and give you a renewed and beautiful appearance. Your Restylane Kysse injections will enhance your lips for a very long time, and the injection process will feel relaxing and comfortable. If you are interested in using this cosmetic treatment to plump your lips, you should contact us at H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK.
