Russian lip technique
With the Russian lip technique, the filler is injected vertically, unlike other techniques. We start at the base of the lip and move outwards towards the border of the lip. This technique injects the product the opposite way around to other techniques. Other techniques start injecting at the border of the lip and work their way inwards, towards the lip border. Russian lips look a lot different to other lip filler techniques
This technique is increasingly popular in the UK as it provides an advanced, new shape. This technique is supposed to give the look of the “Russian Doll”, with the heart shape of the top lip and prevent the migration of the filler.
The Russian lip technique can take between 30 to 45 minutes to complete. No anaesthetic is needed for lip filler as it is a painless and sensationless procedure. Russian lip filler can last from 12 to 18 months.
