ALL ABOUT LASH LIFTS

WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?

It’s a lifting technique designed to give you longer-looking lashes without the need for lash extensions. It will look as if you used a really good eyelash curler, only this lift lasts for 6 to 8 weeks! To top off the treatment, I’ll apply a black lash tint which really makes your lashes look more prominent. The procedure takes about 60 mins to complete. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!

HOW DO I NEED TO PREP FOR THE TREATMENT?

PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT COMPLETELY FREE OF EYE MAKEUP! Also, you must stop usage of waterproof mascara at least 2 days prior to your Lift! If you wear contacts, they must be removed.

IS THIS LIKE LASH EXTENSIONS WHERE THEY WILL LOOK DRAMATICALLY THICKER?

Lash extensions and lash lifts are 2 totally different things. I will not be adding any additional lashes to you. I will simply be curling your natural lashes. That said, for most, it can make your lashes appear fuller because they are so uplifted. Lash extensions can cause damage to your lashes while the lash lift formula we use helps your lashes to stay strong and healthy!

WHAT ARE THE POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS?

It's easy! Don’t get your lashes wet or apply anything at all to them for 24 hours. Steer clear of waterproof mascara the entire life of your Lift. Brush out the lashes daily. I provide a shower visor and lash wand after the treatment.

CAN I STILL WEAR MASCARA AFTER?

Of course! You’ll just achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your curled lashes.

WHY CAN’T I WEAR WATERPROOF MASCARA?

Harsh chemicals are used in waterproof formulas in order to make them, well…. waterproof. This chemical composition is extremely drying to your lashes. Not to mention all the effort and extra tugging and pulling on the lashes to remove the mascara. To be honest, most people are not great at thoroughly removing mascara. If that’s the case, now you’re running around with this super drying film of chemicals on your lashes 24 hours a day. This results in weakened lashes that are prone to breakage, and over shedding.

WHY DO I HAVE TO STOP WEARING WATERPROOF MASCARA 2 DAYS BEFORE?

Pretty much for all the reasons I just stated above. If you are a regular waterproof mascara wearer, then you are already walking in my door with dehydrated and weakened lashes, which will result in a poor Lift and possible further damage.

WILL THIS DAMAGE MY EYELASHES?

No, if you follow all the advice on Pre-prep and Post care. 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.

ARE SOME LASHES RESISTANT TO THE CURL?

On occasion, it can be very difficult and sometimes not possible to sustain the curl with lashes that have a strong cowlick or slanted growth pattern. Also, growth patterns due to plastic surgery in the eye area are often not able to be corrected. I say, give the treatment a shot once, and let’s see how your lashes hold the curl.

I USE LATISSE®. CAN I GET THIS TREATMENT?

Yes. Some of the most dramatic results I’ve achieved have been from those using Latisse® because their lashes are already so long.

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.

I HAVE VERY VERY SHORT LASHES. AM I ABLE TO STILL DO THIS PROCEDURE?

Enter your ansMost of the time, yes. Though it can be challenging if the lashes aren’t even long enough to bring up and back onto the shield. If when you come in, I see that your lashes are too short and too fine or delicate, I will advise that you not get the Lift.wer to the question here. Make sure the writing is clear and concise, and helps visitors get the support they need in the most efficient way. Consider elaborating with examples or visual aids to ensure all users fully understand the information.

I’VE RECENTLY HAD BLEPHAROPLASTY SURGERY, CAN I HAVE THIS PROCEDURE?

You need to wait at least 1 year from your surgery. It has been my experience with clients who have had this surgery that there is an increased sensitivity in the eye area for quite a while. You need to give yourself that time to heal first. After that, you can consult with your physician to be sure.

I’VE RECENTLY HAD LASIK SURGERY, CAN I HAVE THIS PROCEDURE?

Yes, but you need to wait at least 6 months. As always, when in doubt, please consult with your physician.

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.
