What is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift is technically a chemical process that is used to change the behavioural structure and texture of your lashes. Depending on the size of the shield used, the lashes can be lifted more or less dramatically. A lash lift is essentially a modern version of a lash perm without the perming rods.
Contraindications that prevent you from getting a Lash Lift:
- Are you Pregnant? If you have an appointment and found out that you are pregnant, please contact us right away and we can reschedule.
- Do you have very little natural eyelashes or almost nothing? If so, the gaps between your lashes will be more noticeable.
- If you have pre-existing eye(lid) conditions such as chronic dry eye, blepharitis, conjunctivitis and ocular rosacea.
- If you’ve had Lasik surgery recently (wait a minimum of 6 months from your procedure).
- Have Trichotillomania (compulsive pulling or twisting hair, eyebrows and eyelashes).
- If you have very sensitive eyes or possible allergies to adhesive, we recommended to book an appointment for a patch test.
- Are you rough on your lashes? Do you put them through the ringer daily? Constant play with your eyes is a no-no!
- Unfortunately, if you’re undergoing chemo treatments or have had chemo treatments within the past year it is definitely recommend to consult with your physician first.
- Are you sensitive or have allergies to dyes? We will most likely do a patch test before your appointment.
- Have you had blepharoplasty surgery? If so you must wait a minimum of 1 year after your surgery before lifting those lashes!
How long do these appointments take?
Eyelash Lift & Curl appointments last about 40 – 50 minutes depends on how long and coarse the eyelashes are.
How long will the effects last?
A lash lift can last anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks. Results vary from client to client depending their natural lash growth cycle. Indeed, there are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you have found that your lift is not lasting the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before.
