PerlaneManufactured by the same company, Medicis Aesthetics, Inc., Perlane is Restylane's bigger-particled sister.
It works best on: Because of its larger molecular structure, Perlane needs to be injected deeper, so it works best in the cheeks, chin, eyebrows and around the mouth.
How long it lasts: Perlane is marketed as lasting from nine to 12 months but many pros contend that the duration depends on where it's injected -- an area that doesn't move as much, like cheeks, will reportedly last longer than one that's constantly in motion, like marionette lines (those that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).
One expert's opinion: "Perlane is like bread dough," says Dr. Arcan. "It's dense and beautifully moldable so it holds its form and allows you to spread it into the space you want it to go."
Reader review: Total Beauty reader Audrey told us that she had Perlane injected into the "abyss" -- what dermatologists call crevices that occur around the corners of the mouth. "It worked like a charm to plump them back up and lasted for a really long time!"
