Who is a good candidate for a Lash Lift?
Anyone is a good candidate for a Lash Lift! Regardless of how short or long, thick or thin, straight or curly, coarse or fine, light or dark - Everyone can benefit from this incredible treatment!
What should I expect during the treatment?
The treatment will begin with your lash technician cleansing the lashes and applying an under-eye gel pad to cover your bottom lashes. Your eyes will remain closed for the rest of the treatment. Next, she will use a gentle temporary glue to secure the appropriate sized silicone pad to your eyelid. Size will depend on the length of your lashes and desired look. Glue is again applied to the top of the silicone pads, and lashes are then combed up over the silicone pad to secure them in the desired position. Next, the gentle perm and neutralizing cream is applied and removed. If tint is being applied then your technician will apply tint and remove. A nourishing oil is then applied to lashes and eyelid to release silicone pads. Eye area is gently cleansed with a damp facial wipe and lashes are combed out. Finally, open your eyes to see your new gorgeous lashes!
How long does it take?
A simple Lift takes about 45 minutes and Lift & Tint takes about 60 minutes.
How does it work?
Like traditional perming solution, the Lash Lift perm solution breaks the bonds of the hair allowing it to take the shape you want. Then a neutralizing setting cream is applied to reset the bonds in the hair. The result - dramatically lifted lashes!
How is a Lash Lift different a from Lash Perm?
With a lash perm the lashes are wrapped around a sponge rod and the perming and setting solutions are applied to the entire lash in order to create the curled effect. With Lash Lift, the lashes are secured to a silicone pad and the perming and setting solution is applied only the base where its needed to lift the lashes so not to over process the lash causing the strand to become brittle.
Is it Safe?
Absolutely! The Solutions are very gentle and approved by Health Canada to be used on the eyes. Even clients with sensitive eyes report that the treatment is very comfortable with no irritation or discomfort.
Can I continue to use lash growth products such as Latisse?
Yes. Growth enhancing products will not interfere with the lashes ability to be lifted nor will it affect the how long the Lash Lift lasts.
How long does the Lash Lift last?
The Lash Lift lasts up to 6 -8 weeks which is the length of your lash growth cycle. There are three phases of growth and the lashes on your eyes are continually in all three phases at once. You constantly have new growth at the same time that you are shedding lashes. Once the lashes are lifted with the perm and neutralizing products, the lashes will never return to their originally straight position. They will however shed, and the new growth will come in straight. Depending on what stage the majority of your mature lashes are in at the time you have them lifted, will determine when you will be due for another lift.
Can I get another lash lift if some of my lashes are still lifted?
Yes, once the perm and neutralizing creams are applied, the bonds on the already lifted lashes with be broken and able to take the new shape along with the straight lashes. The product is gentle enough, and only applied to the base of the lashes as to not over processes the previously lifted lashes.
Can i have my natural lashes lifted prior to putting lash extensions on?
Yes , if you have extremely straight lashes and are unable to hold a curlier lash extension, you can lift your natural lashes prior to extension application. However, your technician would only do a very subtle lift so the lashes are not too difficult to work on, and once extensions are applied you can NOT continue to get Lash Lifts between fills.
What if i don't like how intense the curl is?
We are yet to have a client who is not absolutely in LOVE with their new Lash Lift, however in the case that you don't like it, we can easily relax the curl by breaking the bonds with perm and neutralizing creams.
Lash Lift is the newest in semi-permanent lash curling system that works with your natural lashes. This is unlike the traditional perming system of wrapping lashes around a sponge rod, which can cause the lashes to over-curl and look short and stubby. Instead, Lash Lift uses different sizes of silicone pads and each lash is “lifted” individually at the base of the lash, creating a perfect lift for your lash length. With lifted lashes, your eyes immediately open up and lashes appear fuller and longer.
Treatment is 45-60 minutes with results lasting 6-8 weeks. This is a great alternative to lash extensions, giving a you a naturally beautiful look!
