Here's Everything You Need To Know About Lash Lifts!

Lash Lift

WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?

The LASH LIFT procedure begins with placing silicone pads on top of the eyelid.  This technique is relatively new and can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look.  LASH LIFTS are another way to lengthen lashes and leave you feeling like you have lash extensions.  No need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you approximately 6-8 weeks.  Clients like combining the LASH LIFT with a LASH TINT for that extra pop.  No need for mascara, however it can be applied.

LASH LIFTS CAN BE USED TO COMPLIMENT OTHER TREATMENTS

A LASH LIFT is enhanced when you use an eyelash growth product. While your lashes grow longer, our product controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them an equal lifted look. Black eyelash tint is applied during the treatment to enhance the look of your lashes.  

NO PAIN OR STINGING

The procedure is totally painless.   Your eyes will be closed for the entire treatment.  It may feel a little strange not being able to open your eyes for this time.  Take this opportunity to relax and enjoy!

SAFE PROCEDURE

Yes, completely safe.  Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped silicone lifting pads before products are applied.

NO DAMAGE TO NATURAL LASHES

Select a carefully trained and skilled professional to ensure proper Lash Lift procedures are followed.

PROCEDURE TIME

A Lash Lift can take anything from 45 minutes to an hour from beginning to end. Maybe a little longer if you decide to have your eyelashes tinted which will enhance the effect of your Lash Lift. Tinting takes an extra 10 minutes.

HOW LONG WILL THE LASH LIFT LAST?

A Lash Lift can last up to 6-8 weeks but can vary from person to person.  You will need to repeat this process approximately every 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. If you swim, rub your eyes a lot, or use harsh products the lashes may drop or weaken. If you find that your lift does not last 6-8 weeks, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of having the initial treatment.

ALLERGIC REACTION

Very few people have a reaction to the product but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen, so to be sure you can visit prior to your lash lift treatment for a patch test 24 hours beforehand, unless the client waives the patch test.

A patch test is quick and simple.  A small bit of each lifting solution, & water soluble adhesive is applied behind the ear.

CONTACT LENSES

We ask you to remove them temporarily during the treatment as the eyes will be closed throughout.  You can put your contacts back in immediately after the procedure.

MAKEUP

You should leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish, use a non-waterproof mascara so there is no pulling when you remove your mascara.  Pulling on your lashes will weaken the lash lift.

CLEANING EYES

Wait 24 hours and use a gentle cleanser.

HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE A LASH LIFT?

A Lash Lift will begin to naturally drop after 6-8 weeks and your lashes will be back to their natural look. The lashes should drop evenly and will not look out of place. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks if you feel the need, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.
