Best Filler for Cheek Enhancement

Perlane is Restylane's stronger sister! Perlane is a great option for cheek enhancement. Another option is Voluma, which is similar to Restylane and Perlane but lasts twice as long. Talk with your dermatologist to figure out which filler would give you the results you're looking for.

Perlane vs. Restylane for Cheek Enhancement

Perlane can be a very effective treatment for enhancing the cheeks. While both Perlane and Restylane work to restore lost volume and fullness, the effects of Perlane do last longer than Restylane in the cheek area. There are other cheek enhancing fillers available and it is best to consult with your board-certified dermatologist to determine the filler treatment that's best for you.

Does Perlane last longer than Restylane

Perlane and Restylane are both hyaluronic acid fillers. The difference is not in the length of time they last, but the particle size of the hyaluronic acid they contain. Perlane is a larger particle size so it fills deeper areas better and provides more volume. It can be an excellent filler for the cheeks, as can Voluma, which is also a hyaluronic acid with a larger particle size. Consult a board-certified injector in your area for an in-person consultation to discuss which filler would be right for you.
