The Russian Doll Lip filler technique is all the buzz in the aesthetics world right now. Are you wondering if this technique is what’s best for you and your desired lip goals? Have you been watching TikToks of this hottest new injection trend? We are here to break it down for you!
Russian Doll Lip filler is a specific injection technique that shapes the lips into a subtle heart shape (like a Russian doll). It provides lift to the shape of the lip rather than add excessive volume. It’s ideal for patients seeking a natural-appearing lip enhancement. You’ll also notice that the results have a flatter appearance as height is the goal over plumpness (although you can get both if you want).
This is an advanced technique so before we go any further, make sure you have a trustworthy injector that boasts lots of great results with this technique.
How is the Russian doll lip technique different?
During traditional lip filler, you’ll notice that the injector starts injecting filler at the border of the lip and moves the product inward. When using the Russian doll technique, the injector will inject filler vertically beginning at the base of the lip and drawing the product outward toward the lip border.
Does the Russian technique cause more bruising or swelling?
No! The bruising/swelling will be no different than normal filler. As always, choose a reputable injector that you trust.
How long does this filler technique take?
30-45 minutes with prep time. We apply topical numbing before injecting the filler to make this experience as comfortable as possible.
How long will my results last?
Filler dissolves naturally over time, depending on the type of filler you receive you will notice your results last 6-12 months.
