Different Lip Filler Techniques

Sep 8

Lip filler is a cosmetic procedure to plump up the lips with dermal filler.

There are many different lip filler techniques for lip fillers depending on the goals of the patient. 

Lip fillers are excellent for bringing more definition and volume to your lips, but the results are temporary. Because of this, it's important to know what types of lip filler techniques exist so you can decide which one is right for your needs.


Lip Fillers: What are the Best Types of Lip Augmentation?

There are a number of different lip augmentation techniques available for patients. The best results can be achieved when a combination of techniques is used. It is important to choose an expert like Doctor Shah who specializes in non-surgical cosmetic surgery to ensure you get the best results possible.

All techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages, which makes it important to understand the differences between them before undergoing any procedure. Here we will take a look at two that are popular today.


1. Lip Tenting Technique

The lip tenting technique can help you achieve fuller lips. This is a lip augmentation method that's been around for years, but it's recently gained popularity because of the pouty lips trend.

The idea behind the lip tenting technique is to create a pocket of air between your natural lip and the temporary filler used during the procedure. This allows more room for your permanent filler to settle and gives you bigger, fuller lips.

This technique involves placing a filler into the upper and lower part of your mouth at the same time. 


2. Russian Lip Technique

The Russian lip technique is a new, minimally invasive way to get fuller lips. It is a procedure that uses hyaluronic acid filler injected into the lip body, which is underneath the border of the lip and above the vermilion edge.

The process involves placing tiny droplets of filler, injected vertically into the lip, compared to lines of filler underneath the border. See this full article on Russian lip technique here

This technique widens, lifts, and opens the lip body without any compromise of projection. The results are natural-looking and long lasting results.


Russian Lip Filler Technique vs Normal 

The Russian lip filler technique is not as common in the UK as it is in Russia, but it is becoming more popular. The main reason that clients choose to go for this treatment is because of the results they can achieve.

Whilst most clients have shared that the treatment does not hurt any more than the classic lip, the Russian technique does risk significantly more bruising and swelling. This means that if you are looking for a quick fix, this may not be ideal for you.

The Russian technique uses a thicker filler which is injected into the lips in three.

The traditional method of lip filler involves using small amounts of product for each injection point. This allows for minimal bruising and swelling, but can result in uneven results when it comes to filling out larger areas of the lip (i.e., full lips).


Most Natural Lip Filler Technique

Natural looking lips can be achieved with dermal fillers. Lip augmentation is a procedure that involves injecting hyaluronic acid gel into the lips to add volume and create a fuller pout.

Dermal fillers are biocompatible materials used to treat facial irregularities and to enhance the lips. They are made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the human body. Dermal fillers can help smooth wrinkles and improve volume loss in aging skin.

However, lip augmentation requires careful planning, skill and experience to get the best results. Here are some tips on how to achieve natural looking lips with dermal fillers:


1- Choose a good injector

The first step to achieving natural results is choosing a good injector similar to Dr Shah at Dr Majid Shah Aesthetics in Birmingham. The injector should have extensive experience and training in dermal fillers, as well as other facial cosmetic procedures such as Botox® Cosmetic (botulinum toxin type A). You should also choose an experienced injector who has performed many lip augmentations before so he can give you realistic expectations about what you will look like after your treatment.

2- Choose a good product line

Choosing the right product line for your specific needs is essential for achieving natural results with dermal fillers. Each product line has its own characteristics, benefits and side effects. The most popular type of injectable filler used for lip augmentation is Juvederm Volbella XC, which is FDA approved to last up to 12 months. Therefore, it is important that you choose a product that fits your needs best in order for it to be effective for you.
