For laugh lines either Restylane or Perlane will go fine. Perlane will then to do a better correction as it is thicker and may last longer.
Hope that helps.

Injectable Filler Options for Under-Eye Bags
Thank you for your inquiry. For dark circles under the eyes, Teosyal Redensity II or Restylane are good options for those not yet ready for blepharoplasty (corrective eye surgery). Perlane is thicker, so the results are not as good for the under-eye area. The amount used varies depending on the person. As for under-eye bags, injectable fillers can reduce their appearance, but the best solution is usually blepharoplasty, which can even remove the bags in some cases. Your laugh lines would be treated as a different area. Consult a qualified plastic surgeon in person for the solution(s) that is best for you.

If your bags are deep then you may need a surgical correction for that area. The nasolabial area can be treated with Restylane or Perlane. If they are deep than Perlane would be preferred. Best, Dr. Green

Eyelid bags and Dark Circles
After the examination and determination of best approach for the patient's features one or more procedures may be recommended. For repositioned or "herniated" lower eyelid fat pads a surgical approach (blepharoplasty) is usually the most effective option. if there is a contour variation between the bulging fat pads and the cheek a "tear trough" is often present which can be filled to soften the appearance of the bulge. The less dense hyaluronic acid (HA) "fillers" such as Restylane or Belotero are good choices for this approach. Perlane is too dense and bulky a filler to be used in this location with potential for lumps and greater risk of complications.
Some patients will benefit significantly from just tightening the skin in the area above the trough by laser or other technology based procedures.
"Dark circles" can be lessened by treatment of the underlying pigment and fine blood vessels by some of the specialized lasers that we use such as V Beam and Gentlelase.
As with all procedures involving the delicate tissues around the eyes please be sure that your doctor is a specialist and experienced in treatment of this area.
