What Are Russian Lips?
The term Russian Lips is derived from the style of lips you often see on Russian stacking dolls or matryoshka. Think, Cupid's bow lips that are particularly full in the middle. This lip enhancement technique focuses on achieving a subtle heart shape with more volume near the center. It tends to lift the lip rather than add excessive volume so it’s ideal for lip filler newbies or those seeking a natural finish.
How Are The Russian Lips Done?
Russian lips are achieved by injecting very small amounts of dermal filler vertically into the lip, as opposed to horizontal injections, used for regular lip filler treatments. A smaller syringe is used to maintain more control over the exact placement of the filler, as it is injected using the threading and droplets injection technique from the base of the lip and outwards toward the lip border, concentrating most of the volume on the center of the lips.
