Russian Lip Filler
Russian lip filler is a lip augmentation treatment. It gets its name from the resemblance the result has to Russian stacking dolls (matryoshka or babushka dolls). The Russian lip technique uses vertical injections of dermal filler to augment your lips. This adds vertical height to the upper lip, define the Cupid’s Bow and sculpt a crisp lip border.
The Russian lip technique has quickly become one of the most popular approaches to lip filler. It is a great option for people wanting a defined and full pout without the ‘duck lip’, ‘trout pout’ or ‘sausage lip’ effect.
What is the Russian lip technique?
Russian lips are currently one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Australia.
Using the Russian lip filler technique, you can sharpen your lip definition, enhance your Cupid’s Bow, add vertical lip height, and sculpt plump, crisp lips. This is without overly projecting the side profile view. Adding emphasis to the Cupid’s Bow gives the lips a heart-shaped, doll-like look.
After cleaning and numbing your lips, we precisely place high quality lip fillers with vertical injections. The filler is placed from the lip body, backwards towards the lip border. This compares to regular lip filler where we inject horizontally to add fullness and projection to the lip body.
Filler is also placed vertically in the bottom lip to curl and define your lower lip border.
How are Russian lips different to regular lip filler?
Standard lip filler treatments are performed using horizontal injections of dermal filler. This allows the product to spread evenly in the red body of your upper and lower lips, creating an even fullness and projection, without focussing on vertical height.
The Russian lip technique focusses on increasing vertical lip height and defining the upper lip border and the Cupid’s Bow. Your lips are still volumised, but in a highly controlled way to minimise forward projection and prevent them from appearing distorted.
What you should know before getting Russian lips
Before choosing to have Russian lip fillers there are a few important things to know.
Lip fillers generally need maintaining every 12-24 months, although it is not uncommon for repeated treatments to last longer.
Most people will have some amount of swelling and bruising, and using a cold compress after your Russian lip injections is the best way to minimise this.
Finally, the filler used for the Russian lip technique can be reversed at any time, giving you full peace of mind.
If you have an important event, it is important get your Russian lips 3-4 weeks in advance, so that you have time to heal.
Get your dreams looks without looking fake and overdone.
