There are no studies but I do believe Restylane last longer than Belotero

Restylane and Belotero filler for under-eye hollows
Restylane is more "structural" and provides good lifting when placed in the deepest area of the hollow. If it's placed too superficially, it can create a bluish appearance that isn't helpful.
Belotero is a "softer" filler suitable for more superficial placement because it flows well under the thin skin of the under-eye area. It doesn't show as a bluish color under the thin skin.
I use both fillers and take advantage of their differing characteristics to create the best look depending on each person's needs and goals. Restylane probably does have greater longevity, but that isn't the only reason for selecting a product. I will frequently "mix and match" the fillers to create the most harmonious appearance.
Always seek a physician to do your treatments, and ask about his/her philosophy about why s/he is recommending a particular treatment option.
Belotero and Restylane for tear troughs - Buffalo Niagara, NY
What is known emperically is that areas where HA fillers are injected, such as tear troughsvthat are less prone to movement than corners of the mouth, lips, marionette lines, the HA fillers last longer in the same individuals.
Of course, genetics as well as body metabolism and smoking play a significant role in how long HA fillers last in any particular individual.

Belotero versus Restylane for Tear Troughs
Belotero and Restylane both have advantages for the tear trough. Belotero has little risk of the Tyndall effect and is ideally suited for the under eye area. Restylane is injected deeper and tends to last a little longer. The product used also depends on the depth of the tear trough that needs injection. There have been no studies comparing the longevity of both of these products in a single study. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with tear trough injections.

Under Eye Treatment
Undereye hollows are a very common concern for many people of all ages. This is one of the most popular procedures in my office. Currently I like to inject Restylane into the hollows of my patients. I find that it causes less swelling than Juverderm and gives better correction than Belotero, but each physician has their own preference.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see if this which filler is best for your concerns.

Longevity depends on several things.
1) Your body's metabolism. Everybody has an enzyme in their skin called hyaluronidase, which breaks down HA and helps your skin remodel itself all the time. Over time (months to years), hyaluronidase will dissolve the HA fillers.
2) Amount of HA injected and injector technique.
3) Use of neuromodulator (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) which can help relax the muscles in the treated area and prevent breakdown of HA
