What Are Russian Lips?

Russian Lips St Albans technique uses lip fillers to add height to the lips but keeps them flat and defined. The key to the Russian Lips technique is to use lip filler starting at the centre and working outward toward the borders to create the perfect cupid’s bow.

Developed by Dr Garunova in Russia, the trend for Russian Lips has spread around the world. Ola was trained personally by Dr Garunova and is one of the few experts in the technique practising in the UK.

Lips can become thinner as a result of the natural ageing process. However, some people may have thin lips caused by genetics. No matter what causes OLA Aesthetics treats thinner or asymmetrical lips by using lip fillers to create fuller and more shapely lips. 

While lip fillers can be highly effective, it’s important to understand that they are not a permanent solution. Russian Lip treatments can last between 6 to 12 months on average.

Russian lips create a subtly enhanced and naturally fuller appearance, adding volume without an exaggerated look.


The technique accentuates the cupid's bow, resulting in a more defined and attractive lip shape.


Russian lips typically offer longer-lasting results, reducing the need for frequent touch-up treatments for sustained enhancement.


What are the Benefits of Russian Lips in
St Albans?

Russian Lip technique pulls up the lips and keeps them flat and defined. Russian Lip hyaluronic acid fillers are one of the most popular types of dermal filler and change your lips shape by lifting and increasing their volume.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many patients may need Russian lips filler treatments repeated every six months. However, there are patients who  metabolise (absorb) lip fillers faster than others. In that case, some patients may need additional treatment sooner. There are also patients who may not need another Russian Lips filler treatments again for up to a year. What’s more, a smaller amount of filler is all that may be required for repeat injections. 

Yes, you may feel some discomfort during lip filler treatment. However, at Ola Aesthetics we reduce discomfort through the use of a topical anaesthetic that works to numb the area before your injections. Many find this considerably cuts down on any pain or discomfort felt during the injections. 

In addition, most lip fillers also contain a numbing medication that helps reduce pain at the site of injection. 

Before your Russian Lip filler procedure, we apply a topical  anaesthetic cream to your lips. The anaesthetic numbs the lips so you won’t feel any pain. The cream contains benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine. After about 15 to 30 minutes, your lips should be numb.

Once you’re ready for the procedure, a fine, thin needle is used to inject the lip filler. While you won’t feel any pain, it is possible you may feel a pinching sensation and your eyes may water. These are completely normal sensations. 

Usually, we will insert about 1ml of lip filler into your lips, which adds up to about 1/5th of a teaspoon. The needle does not go deeper into the skin than about 2.5mm. The entire process takes between 30 minutes and an hour.
