Russian Lip Filler in Sydney

The name Russian Lips originated from the style of lips that are often seen on Russian stacking dolls, known as matryoshka or babushka. With this style of lips, the cupid’s bow is often emphasised in the shape of a heart. This provides a doll-like effect to the lip’s plumpness but still maintains a natural feel and look.

The Russian Technique Lips has been popular in Russia for many years and the trend has rapidly spread to other parts of the world, quickly becoming a favourite. The filler is injected vertically into the lip’s body, this technique lifts the lip along its length, giving a volumised appearance, without overly projecting the lips. This avoids the dreaded “trout pout” or “duck lips”. It is also the best technique for augmenting the cupids bow without looking overdone.

What Is the Russian Lip Technique?

Russian Lips are one of our most in-demand treatments at Contour Clinics. Many of our patients are upping their lip game to all new levels, improving the cupids bow, augmenting lip height WITHOUT looking overdone.

The Russian Lip filler technique provides an impressive improvement in the height of the lips without overly projecting them from the side to achieve natural plumpness to your lips, resembling a doll-like effect. This is achieved by emphasising the cupid’s bow to resemble a heart-shaped look to your lips. A voluminous, yet natural look is then created by everting your lips without an imbalance to your side profile.

Your expert cosmetic doctor or nurse will administer the injection vertically from the vermillion border of your lips (border surrounding the lip) and then draw the filler product outwards to the lip border. This differs from the standard lip filler procedure in which the filler is spread evenly throughout the body of the lips and is injected horizontally along the length of the lips. Filler will be injected into the bottom lip as well to assure a balanced enhancement to your lips. This is typically administered to reduce the distance from your bottom lip to your chin.

How Does this Technique Differ from Others?

Standard lip filler is usually injected into the lips horizontally, allowing the volume to be spread throughout the lips to create an even fullness.

For the Russian Lip Technique, your expert cosmetic injector will inject smaller amounts of filler vertically from the outer border of the lips inward to achieve a natural, shapely, plump look without looking ‘ducky’.

This achieves a completely different ‘doll-like’ result by widening, lifting, and opening the lips without compromising projection.

Eligibility for the Russian Lip Technique in Sydney

The Russian Lips is the best option for those who are opting for aesthetically pleasing improvements in the vertical height and shape of the lips, without overly projecting them from the side view.

The technique is generally better suited to individuals who do not have any previous lip filler or have minimal or dissolved filler in their lips for the best potential result. As the Russian lip filler technique focuses on adding volume from the vermillion border inwards, any remaining filler can obstruct the way this technique lifts.

The technique works well and compliments patients whose philtrum is longer or have a thinner top lip. The added volume provides the height to attain facial harmony.

What You Should Know Before Getting Any Lip Fillers

Before undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedures such as dermal fillers like the Russian Technique, it is important for the patient to be aware of some important information. Lip fillers last up to 6-18 months with results being shown immediately after treatments. Some people are more prone to swelling and bruising, and in this case, these side effects can stay for a few days after treatment and go away by themselves. Avoid activities that increase substantial blood flow such as exercise and getting massages or facials. If you are prone to cold sores, preventative medication immediately before/after your treatment is recommended as injections can trigger a flare of cold sores.

You can go about as normal straight after your treatment. However, it is important to not book your appointment close to a significant event like a wedding or function to allow up to a week for any bruising or swelling to settle.

Our team at Contour Clinics works to achieve the best results for you so talking to your professional about exactly what you want prior to having your lip fillers performed is the key to satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Kind of Filler Is Used?

For dermal filler treatment procedures, hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is used, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that produces new collagen in the lips. This helps create the plump look of the lips. The filler is made with numbing ingredients to reduce discomfort and pain during the procedure. There are various brands of hyaluronic acid fillers. A consultation with your doctor or nurse is most recommended to find out which filler will work best for you to achieve your desired result. Adverse reactions and allergies are extremely rare in the case of dermal fillers.

How Long Will the Treatment Take?

The treatment usually takes around 10-15 minutes. This includes prep time with your nurse or doctor. Extra time may be required if you choose to place numbing cream for it to take effect.

How Long Do Russian Technique Lips Last?

Your Russian Lips will last typically between 6-18 months. Each individual varies. Touch-ups are recommended every 3-9 months.

Is the Treatment Safe?

All medical procedures carry risks, which will be discussed during your complimentary consultation with our expert cosmetic injectors.

Safety and comfort are our chief concerns here at Contour Clinics. When your treatment is performed diligently by our expert doctors and nurses who have extensive experience in cosmetic injectables, the risks of complications from Russian Lip injectors are uncommon. Do keep in mind that the Russian Lip technique is significantly more susceptible to bruising and swelling than standard lip filler. These usually take about 2 weeks to completely subside. If you have any concerns, Contour Clinics offers consultations to discuss any questions.
