Restylane® is used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds around the nose, mouth, and surrounding areas. Restylane® is an injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid. Restylane® combats wrinkles and fine lines by “filling in” your facial imperfections, and is also ideal for lip augmentation. Restylane® results may last up to six months and are most effective when frequently reapplied.
Restylane® products are cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Dr. Pautler uses Restylane® in all facial areas and lips. It is her preferred filler for the delicate lower eyelid area near the nose called the “tear tough”. Perlane® is a slightly thicker product ideal for the lower face and to fill lips.
Restylane® and Perlane® are made of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® and Perlane® has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s hyaluronic acid. Restylane® and Perlane® contain no animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. No allergy testing is required before use.
Restylane® and Perlane® are FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane® has been used in over 70 countries and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the U.S. Perlane® has been used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide since 2000.

It is not unusual for Dr. Pautler to use all three filler types (Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvéderm™) in a single patient to target different wrinkles, folds, or volume depleted areas. In addition, BOTOX® can enhance with careful selection of muscle relaxation. Although not a substitute for surgery, fillers and BOTOX® can give wonderful results that are easy to maintain. They can complement any surgical procedure as well. Many patients start with fillers and BOTOX® in their mid thirties, and increase their usage in small incremements to powerfully maintain a more youthful refreshed appearance as they grow older (but don’t look it!). Combined with excellent skin care, lots of sleep, avoidance of sun, and lots of water, fillers and BOTOX® are extremely effective anti-aging nonsurgical ways to keep you looking your best!
Collagen injections are used to enhance the lips; to camouflage wrinkles and scars of the cheeks, chin, and mouth; and to soften nasolabial folds. These in-office nonsurgical procedures are quick, with virtually no downtime, and require a topical and/or local anesthetic. Sometimes a skin test is needed prior to the injection of collagen to screen for any allergy to the product.
