THE SOLUTION TO BIGGER, FULLER, CURLIER EYELASHES

The newest “it” trend in beauty, a lash lift offers the best of both worlds: you get the semi-permanent lift and curl of eyelash extensions without the additional care, or the potential damage to your natural lashes. Lash lifts also last longer than extensions while allowing you to customize your results, from the shape of the curl, to the addition of tint to make your eyes pop even further by adding depth and darkness with lashes that look longer and thicker!

But that’s not all, a lash lift really helps open the eyes, making you look bright-eyed and alert. The lifted effect also brings out the full length of every individual lash, making them look instantly longer.

Combining a tint with your lash lift will darken the color of your lashes and add depth. It will appear as if you applied a soft coat of mascara to your lashes.

A lash lift can last anywhere 6-8 weeks depending on how quickly your own lashes grow and regenerate, and how well you care for them. You can extend the results by using eyelash growth serums, but the treatment is not permanent.

A Lash Lift Is Like A Perm For Your Eyelashes.

A lash lift is basically a perm that provides up to 8 weeks of lift and curl to your lashes without having to mess with tools, curling wands, and false lashes. Also nicknamed “lash perm,” this procedure works with a keratin solution to create volume. The same way a hairstylist would set your hair around different size barrels (depending on the curl size you want) and coat it with a perming solution to lock in the shape, a lash specialist curls your lashes over a silicone rod then paints the hairs with a lifting solution.

Every treatment starts with a consultation to determine what lash style you’re looking to achieve. The level of curl is customizable and based on your answers, your esthetician will then pick a suitable curling pad size to shape the lashes.

The effects are semi-permanent so you’ll need to get the procedure done again after a few months in order to maintain results.

LASH LIFT FAQs

Before your visit, if you normally wear contact lenses, you’ll want to remove them and wear eyeglasses instead.

You’ll also want to make sure that your eyelids and lashes are clean: They should be completely free of makeup or residue — this includes mascara and the oils that some makeup removers leave behind.

While lash lifts are advertised as being safe, the process itself involves chemicals, including manufactured keratin:

• Estheticians often apply a glue to the eyelid to position a silicone roller, which they use to shape your lashes.
• Chemicals break up the disulfide bonds in strands of hair, making it possible to reshape the hair.
• The application of another solution “sets” the new shape and stops the initial process of reforming the disulfide bonds in your hair.

Let your esthetician know if you have a history of eye, skin conditions, or sensitivities. Whether or not you have a history of sensitivities, it’s a good idea to have the practitioner perform a skin test with a small amount of the lash-lifting product. This is usually applied to a less conspicuous area of the body, such as the inside of your elbow.

Not if performed by a skilled and properly trained professional who will ensure proper lash lift procedures are followed.

A lash lift can last anywhere 6-8 weeks depending on how quickly your own lashes grow and regenerate, and how well you care for them. You can extend the results by using eyelash growth serums, but the treatment is not permanent. Our lash lift provides 8-12 weeks of lift and curl to your lashes without having to bother with tools, curling wands, and false lashes.

There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use of harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full two months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of your initial Lash Lift procedure, but not before.

Eyelash Lift & Tint MAY NOT be suitable for clients that:

    • Pregnant. If you have an appointment and found out that you are pregnant, please contact me right away and we can reschedule
    • Have very little natural eyelashes or have nothing. The gaps between your lashes will be more noticeable
    • Have pre-existing eye(lid) conditions such as chronic dry eye, blepharitis, conjunctivitis and ocular rosacea
    • Lasik surgery (wait a minimum of 6 months from your procedure)
    • Have Trichotillomania (compulsive pulling or twisting hair, eyebrows and eyelashes)
    • Have very sensitive eyes or possible allergies to adhesive (recommended to book an appointment for a patch test)
    • Who are rough with their lashes
    • Undergoing chemo treatments or have had chemo treatments within the past year (recommend to consult with your physician)
    • Are sensitive or have allergies to dyes (recommended to book an appointment for a patch test)
    • Had blepharoplasty surgery (must wait a minimum of 1 year after your surgery)

Avoid getting your lashes wet (or applying mascara) during the first 24 hours so they can set their shape. After a day, it’s back to your regularly scheduled programming. No need to worry about getting your eyelashes wet or wearing mascara.

To keep your lashes as healthy as possible we recommend you give your lashes a break in between any lash treatments (including tinting and extensions) to maintain their strength. We also recommend applying a nightly lash oil such as CompleteLash® Accelerator with nourishing ingredients to strengthen and promote lash growth.

If you’re using a lash growth serum, be sure to let the salon know. They should use a softer profile or less curl as the lashes curve more easily when on a growth serum. If they use a mold too tight, it may flip the lashes back onto themselves.

Approximately 40-50 minutes depends on how long and coarse your eyelashes are, and if your lashes will be tinted.

A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about two months 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 one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.

Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara, especially if you opt for a Lash Lift and Tint, however, if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara is advised as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.

Gently, using mild products. Always wait 24 hours to do this, straight after the procedure.

Like any cosmetic treatment, lash lifts aren’t without risk. There are some potential side effects to consider — which can be made worse if you don’t work with an experienced technician who specializes in treatments around the eyes, including lash lifts. lash extensions, tinting, and/or brow shaping.

Skin irritation is perhaps the greatest risk of the procedure. While protective pads are placed along your lash line to prevent the keratin glue from getting on your skin, this method isn’t completely foolproof.

You might also be more prone to irritation due to the chemicals contained in the solution if you have a history of dry eye, allergies, and eye or skin sensitivities.

Potential side effects from the solution include:

• blisters
• rash
• redness
• dry eye
• watery eyes
• inflammation
• more brittle lash hair

Aside from the solution itself causing irritation, working with an inexperienced practitioner can also increase your risk of side effects during the application process.

APPOINTMENT PREP & AFTERCARE

Please plan to arrive 10 minute prior to your appointment time to update all necessary consultation forms and prepare for your procedure to begin on time. Please make sure to arrive without contacts, concealer, eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow etc.) on the day of your appointment. avoid curling your natural lashes with a lash curler for 24 hours prior to your appointment. Makeup removal will result in time being taken from lashing and a removal fee of $25 will be added to the service.

If you want a more dramatic result, then going on something like a lash serum to grow your lashes as long as possible is a great option (we recommend CompleteLash® Triple Action Lash Accelerator), however, we can work with any lash type.

If you’re using a lash growth serum, be sure to let the salon know. They should use a softer profile or less curl as the lashes curve more easily when on a growth serum. If they use a mold too tight, it may flip the lashes back onto themselves.

DO

NATURAL LASH GROWTH CYCLE

Eyelashes go through a three-phase growth cycle. Long, thick eyelashes are touted as one of the most desirable features a person can have. Thousands of products are sold to enhance the look of lashes from mascara to lash conditioner to lash extensions. So, when you wake up in the morning and notice an eyelash or two that have fallen out (and are resting on your cheeks or pillow), it can be a little unsettling. It’s important to understand that this is a normal process, like every other hair on your body, eyelashes are perpetually moving through a natural growth cycle.

Eyelashes aren’t just a pretty feature on the face; rather they have a very specific and important function. Eyelashes are designed to prevent objects and debris from getting in the eyes. Each eyelash is actually a sensory hair that reflexively shuts the eyelid whenever it is touched by dirt, dust or anything else that could possibly get in the eye. The upper lid typically has about 90-150 lashes on it, while the bottom lashes have between 70-80 lashes. Most eyelashes grow to be 10mm long just 3/8 inch.

Although it may not seem like it, hair growth is a preset function of the body. Every hair on your body follows a three-phase growth cycle and eventually falls out, which is typically nothing to worry about.

ANAGEN (GROWTH) PHASE

The anagen phase is also called the growth phase. This is the phase when lashes are actively growing. It can last between 30-45 days. Only about 40% of the upper lashes and 15% of the lower lashes are in the anagen phase at any one time. Each will grow to a specific length and then stop.

CATAGEN (TRANSITION) PHASE

The catagen phase is also known as the transition phase. During this phase, the lash stops growing and the hair follicle shrinks. If an eyelash falls out or is plucked during this phase, won’t grow back right away because the follicle needs to complete the cartagen phase before it can move on to the next one. This phase lasts between two and three weeks.

TELOGEN (RESTING) PHASE

The telogen phase is also referred to as the resting phase. This can last more than 100 days before the eyelash falls out and a new one begins to grow. Each individual lash is in its own phase of the growing cycle, its normal for a few lashes to fall out most days. It typically takes between four to eight weeks to full replace and eyelash.
