Frequently Asked Questions!
If your question is not listed, or you would like more information please contact us anytime!
Is this like lash extension where they will look dramatically thicker?
No. Lash extensions and lash lifts are 2 totally different treatments. We will not be adding any additional lashes to your existing lashes. We will simply be curling your natural lashes. It will make your lashes appear fuller because they are so uplifted.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting pads before products are applied.
Is there any maintenance?
None at all! You don’t have to do anything special with your lashes in between lifts. If you wish you may use a nourishing oil or lash serum to promote the strength and length of your natural lashes.
Will this damage my eyelashes?
No. The lifting solutions are only applied to the new growth area of the lashes, down towards the base and up a bit. Never to the ends of the lashes where they are the most delicate.
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 6 to 8 weeks. Your lashes shedding and growing will cause the lift to grow out, the structure of the lift itself should not change.
How do I need to prep for the treatment?
Please come in make up free. If you wear contacts, they must be removed just for the duration of the treatment. If you wear waterproof mascara please stop using it 3 days prior to your appointment; regular mascara just the day before. Any residue on the lashes will affect the quality of the lift.
What are the post treatment instructions?
Lashes must be left alone for the first 24 hours. Keep them dry, no water, sweating or crying, do not touch, rub, or pull on them. Try to sleep on your back. Do not apply make up for the first 24 hours. After 24 hours you may resume your regular activities and treatment of your lashes.
How do I clean my eyes?
Gently, using mild products. Always wait 24 hours to do this to ensure long lasting results.
Can I still wear mascara?
Yes, as soon as the 24 hour window has passed. Waterproof mascara is not recommended as the removal of it is much rougher on the lashes and can cause the lift to begin to drop.
How often can I have a lash lift?
You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 5 weeks if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state, average between 8-10 weeks. Most clients will re-lift around 6 – 7 weeks as the new growth comes in straight and the lifted lashes that have not yet shed can cause a uneven, possibly messy, look.
Who is this procedure NOT good for?
Chronic dry eye, conjunctivitis, damaged lashes or lashes with gaps (this treatment may make the gaps more noticeable), active eye infections of any kind, trichotillomania (habitual pulling out of lashes), recent chemo treatments (you will need to wait at least a year from your last treatment. When in doubt, always consult with your physician.
