How to do Russian lip filler technique?
The technique involves injecting small amount of dermal filler into the cupid’s bow of the lips, mainly focused around the centre to achieve the heart-shaped look. The lip filler is injected vertically into multiple injection points and dragged upward from the base to the top of the lip.

What is the difference between Traditional lip augmentation technique and Russian lip filler technique?
- Different injection directions: Traditional lip fillers are injected horizontally into the lips, resulting in an evenly spread volume and fullness effect. However, the Russian filler technique injects small amounts of filler vertically, focusing in on the center of the lips. Russian lip filler technique aims to heighten the lip, rather than to add overall plumpness throughout the lips, thus providing that heart-shaped look.
- Different treatment times: Traditional lip enhancement takes about 15 to 30 minutes, while Russian lip filler takes about 25 to 45 minutes because more points need to be injected with a smaller amount.
