    You can get Russian technique lips if you’ve already had lip filler. However, the treatment works better if you don’t have filler in your lips. This is because your filler can interfere with how we place new filler with the Russian technique.

    We generally advise waiting for your previous filler to wear off or dissolving it before getting Russian lips.

    It is up to you whether or not to dissolve old lip filler before having Russian lips. Russian lips work optimally when you don’t have any lip filler.

    If you dissolve your lip fillers, you need to wait 2 weeks before getting Russian lips.

    Some clinics charge more for Russian lip fillers compared to traditional lip fillers because they are supposedly more challenging and take longer.

    In reality, Russian lip fillers are not significantly more difficult to perform than regular lip fillers when done by an experienced medical professional. For this reason, we charge the same price for Russian lips as we do for traditional lip fillers.

    With a gentle technique, tiny needles, and strong numbing, Russian lips should only have slight discomfort.

    We use a moderately firm filler for Russian lips. This allows the lips to be accurately sculpted, maintain their shape, and look and feel natural.

    The Russian lip technique takes 10-20 minutes.

    The Russian lip technique involves vertical injections of dermal filler into your lips. This adds height to your lips, and defines your Cupid’s Bow and lip borders.

    You will see an immediate result after Russian lip fillers. Allow a few days for swelling to subside, and 1-2 weeks for the filler to settle.

    Russian lip fillers last 12-24 months on average.

    You can increase the longevity by having regular maintenance treatments.

    To prepare for your Russian technique lip filler appointment avoid alcohol and intense exercise within 24 hours of your treatment.

    Remove all makeup from your lips before arriving for your appointment.

    After having Russian technique lip filler avoid alcohol and intense exercise for 24 hours. Be gentle with your lips for 7 days, and apply a cold compress to minimise swelling and bruising.

    When performed by a qualified medical professional, Russian technique lip fillers are a low-risk treatment.
