WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?
This treatment is meant to curl, lift, and lengthen your natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller wide-eyed look. Two cream solutions are applied throughout the process finishing off with a conditioner. There is also an option to add a tint which darkens them, giving an even more dramatic look.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?
Depending on your lashes, this takes anywhere from 45-60 min.
WILL IT HURT AND IS IT SAFE?
Eyelash lifts are replacing the old perm technique which used cotton rods and a liquid that would absorb into it. Instead, the lashes are lifted onto a silicone rod and the creams are rolled over on top which is less likely to get into your eyes.
It’s absolutely pain free! Take this time to relax and take a mini nap. Your eyes will be closed the entire time. You may feel a slight tingle, but for the most part no major discomfort (please notify your tech if so).
WILL THIS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
These formulas are created with keratin to actually grow and strengthen your lashes! Sometimes you’ll notice some fall out after, but it’s completely normal. Our lashes are growing and falling out everyday, it’s more unnoticeable compared to the hair on our heads. Don’t think because you see your lashes falling after the treatment it’s because of the lash lift, they were going to anyways!
HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?
Results last about 6-8 weeks.
Remember, your lashes are each in a different stage of the hair growth cycle so they won’t all be lifted for the same amount of time. Also the hairs which are in the ’baby’ stage when you get your lift will grow in to their natural state.
WHAT DOES AFTERCARE ENTAIL?
Post care requires minimal maintenance. Within the first 24 hours, you want to leave your lashes unwashed, untouched. Afterwards, feel free to use makeup, mascara, serums, oils, etc.
My only recommendation is stay away from waterproof mascara because it requires more tugging on the lashes when cleaning.
IS THIS LIKE GETTING EYELAH EXTENSIONS?
No, totally different process and result! With extensions, false mink lashes are individually placed on top of yours with adhesive. Extensions do give a longer, more volumized look. Lash lifts are intended to simply enhance your natural lashes.
