The typical method of achieving bigger lips is to use lip filler. A doctor uses a needle to inject hyaluronic acid (a natural substance contained in your body) into the folds of your lips. The hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge, absorbing any moisture from inside your mouth and causing it to inflate, making your smile appear larger.

Another type of lip filler that comes from Russia is known as Russian Lip Filler. Here’s everything you should know about this popular cosmetic procedure:

If you’re new to lip augmentation, you’ve most likely heard about injectable fillers and how they may help you attain the luscious, full lips you’ve always desired. But what if we told you there are several kinds of fillers? That’s right: different fillers serve different purposes and yield different results. Russian Lip Filler is one such substance.

The Russian Lip Filler gel works in the same way as standard lip fillers but provides additional benefits that are not available with traditional injectable fillers.The injection process is also unique in that it employs tiny syringes and injects small amounts at a time. This may appear to be a disadvantage, but it is not.

Russian Lip Filler


As the name suggests, just like you see in Russian stacking dolls – or matryoshka and babushka, to give them their correct name; the Russian Lip technique shapes the lips into a subtle heart shape with more volume near the centre of the lips. Unlike traditional lip fillers, the technique tends to lift the lip giving the hight rather than add volume, making them look more natural and an ideal solution for any newbies considering getting lip fillers. The technique also makes your lips appear flatter rather than the plump-look normal lip filler techniques produce.

How is the Russian Lip Filler Technique different

Whereas, traditional lip fillers are injected from the lip border and work inwards, during the Russian Lip Filler technique tiny droplets of filler is injected vertically at the base of the lip drawing the product outwards. This technique widens, lifts and opens the lip body without any compromise of projection.

Smaller syringes are used during the injections just so they can be controlled better stopping the filler to spill over to unintended areas, allowing more shaping options. It might take a little longer than your traditional lip filler, but it certainly would be worth it.

Is the Russian Lip Filler technique painful?

Absolutely not. Because the fillers are injected in the base of your lips rather than the border, it’s more of a tingling sensation than pain.

Who can get Russian Fillers?

For the apparent reason, the best canvas is a blank one. So, ideally, it would be perfect for anyone who hasn’t had any lip fillers done before. If however, you have had a lip filler done before, the filler will be removed by dissolve before your appointment.

How will I know which lip filler technique is best for me?

Well, that’s where we come in. Prior to any treatment, you will have a consultation to determine the best course of action. Ideally though, if you have never had lip fillers done before, we would highly recommend the Russian Lip Filler. With this technique, you get a more subtle look, rather than the all famous projected pout.

Does The Russian Technique Cause More Bruising or Swelling?

The Russian technique allows for multiple injections with smaller points, so the bruising might be a little bit more noticeable, however these subsidies are without concerns.

How long does the Russian Lip technique take?

Creating the Russian lip requires double the amount of time that the standard lip filler technique takes. Depositing tiny droplets of product between the lip tissue takes time, resulting in a smooth uniform finish, with that lip lift effect. Our practitioners are very articulate regarding the placement of filler. Patience and calmness are definitely required to promote tissue separation for a seamless result. As such the application itself will take anywhere from 30-45 minutes.

How long do Russian Lips last?

The Russian Lip Filler lasts the same amount of time as the traditional lip fillers 6-12 months with some patients reporting they lasted 2 years.

The Russian doll lip filler technique demands an artist’s touch so it’s even more important to find a trustworthy clinic.

Immediately after your treatment, you may have a small amount of bleeding and swelling. This is normal after skin tissue augmentations. In the hours that follow, some clients will start to see bruising appearing around the needle sites. These will subside within 7 days and your new final, natural, beautiful lip shape will reveal when the dermal filler has settled in the lips.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

Although there is zero downtime and you may resume your usual daily routine following dermal lip filler treatment in general the treatment healing time is 7 days. Some swelling can be expected immediately after the medical treatment. An ice pack (wrapped in a paper towel to prevent it sticking to the filled lips) can help with this, and the initial swelling will go down quite quickly. There may be minor soreness from the injections as the numbness from the topical cream wears off. You can manage this with paracetamol painkillers. We advise against ibuprofen, aspirin, blood thinner medications, Fish oil, Vitamin A & E and steroids 7 days before treatment and 7 days following treatment.

Avoid intense exercise for 2 days after your treatment. Reduced activity allows the body to heal the treated areas quicker. Avoid swimming, sauna, steam rooms and sunbeds for 7 days.  Bruising is rare but can occur and will subside within 5 days

Avoid consuming alcohol for 7 days. Avoid excessive consumption of caffeine drinks and drink hot drinks through a straw.

Drinking plenty of water also helps to keep hydrated and applying a thin layer of Vaseline to keep the lips moist.

Avoid applying makeup to the lips for 48 hours.

One of the most evident medical advantages is the reduction of thin lips, which have long been considered a global beauty standard. Many women believe that therapy improves their sense of femininity. However, there are other fantastic outcomes and advantages.

Fuller lips can give the appearance of stronger features. They can assist to balance the features, especially if you have a larger upper face (eyes and forehead) and a smaller chin. Finally, the volume they restore can give the face bounce and youthfulness.

The advantages of choosing this sort of treatment versus the more skin-invasive medical procedure of implants are that there are little to no side effects or discomfort. They typically take less than 15 minutes to administer, have minimal bruising and swelling, and are incredibly inexpensive in compared to permanent modifications.
