Lash Lift

January 11, 2019

What is a Lash Lift?

The Lash Lift is a revolutionary technique that gives volume, curl and length to your natural lashes. To give your lashes that desired length and volume, an eye-safe adhesive is then applied to the top of the pad, brushing your lashes upwards. Next, a special lash-lifting solution is applied. This solution softens the bonds of your hair, moulding it into the shape that the adhesive has set them into. After 30 minutes, the adhesive will be carefully removed. Hello lash envy!! Your own lashes with amazing lift and volume.

Do I need to prepare for the Lash Lift?

Don’t wear any makeup and if you wear contact lenses, you will need to remove these before the treatment.

How long will a Lash Lift last?

Because the Lash Lift uses your natural lashes to create that coveted wide-eyed look, this amazing treatment will last up to 4-6 weeks. Even better, there is no need for any maintenance appointment in between treatments! As with every beauty treatment, results can vary from person to person, and some activities, including swimming for example, can cause the bonds in the lashes to prematurely weaken.

Can I still use my favorite daily lash serums?

Absolutely! Lash growth and thickening serums, as well as your regular lash tint, can still be used in conjunction with your Lash Lift treatment.

We do not recommend the use of an eyelash curler after your Lash Lift, however, as a Lash Lift gives a much better result than using a curler! But more importantly, using an eyelash curler may weaken and damage your lashes.

Is a Lash Lift the same as an eyelash perm?

No! While the chemicals used in the Lash Lift are the same eye-safe products as in a perm, the Lash Lift has ditched the old-fashioned, over-curling lash perm rollers. Instead, by using silicone pads to lift the lash straight upwards from the root, we can create dreamy custom lashes that are either straight or curled, depending on your desired look.

Will the Lash Lift hurt?

Not at all. A Lash Lift is a totally painless, non-invasive procedure. You will have to have your eyes closed for the duration of the 30 minute treatment, so we recommend you take this time to unwind and relax!

Is the procedure safe?

Completely! However, as with any treatment, we recommend an optional patch test beforehand. A patch test is simple. Your Lash Technician will place 2 drops of lotion behind your ear. After 15 minutes, it will be wiped off and the area assessed for any irritation, redness or inflammation.

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

No. The chemical procedure used in the Lash Lift is safe for and gentle on your natural lashes. You may experience some redness around the eye immediately after the process, however this will be from the pressure of the pads and should disappear within a few minutes.

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?

Definitely! If you want to enhance your Lash Lift even further, just wait 24 hours after the treatment to use your favorite mascara. We recommend a non-waterproof mascara as it is easier to remove than a waterproof one, keeping your newly lengthened lashes protected against any harsh makeup removal.

 Post Care Instructions

The first 24 hours after receiving your Lash Lift are the most important for effectiveness and safety. During this period, make sure you:

  • Keep your lashes dry and makeup free
  • Avoid any cream or lotion that is oil-based

In General:

  • Do not use waterproof mascara
  • Do not use an eyelash curler
  • Do not rub or irritate your eyes
