EVERY INDIVIDUAL HAS A UNIQUE LIP SHAPE THAT LENDS ITSELF TO DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES.
ONE METHOD TRENDING ON RIGHT NOW IS THE RUSSIAN LIP TECHNIQUE.
What are “Russian Lips”?
This specific technique will shape the lips into a subtle heart shape with more volume near the center, much like a Russian doll. 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. You will also notice a ‘flatter’ appearance as height is the goal, rather than plumpness. (Although both can be achieved if that is what you desire!)
The technique demands an artist’s touch so it’s even more important to find a trustworthy injector.
How is the Russian Lip technique different?
Unlike traditional lip filler, an injector employing the Russian Lip technique injects the product vertically starting at the base of the lip and drawing the product outward toward the lip border. Rather than starting from the lip border and working inward, the injector works the product from the inside out.
How much does the Russian Lip cost?
Russian lips cost a little more than traditional lip filler and depend on how much much filler is used.
How long does the Russian Lip technique take?
The Russian Lip technique takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes, including prep time.
How long do Russian Lips last?
At Harbour Medispa Hamilton your premium brand hyaluronic acid lip filler will typically last 9-12 months, with touch-ups recommended every 6 months on average but it depends on many factors both intrinsic and extrinsic. Ask for more information at your consultation appointment.
