FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS ABOUT LASH LIFTS

How do I need to prep for the treatment?

  • Please come in make up free. If you wear contacts, they must be removed.

 

Can a Lash Lift be used to compliment other treatments?

  • Yes! A lash Lift is enhanced when you use an eyelash growth product, or a semi-permanent mascara. While your lashes grow longer, our process controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them a uniform lifted look.

 

Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?

  • No the procedure is totally painless. You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment and although it may feel a little strange being unable to open your eyes for this time, it offers you a chance to relax during the treatment.

 

Is the procedure safe?

  • Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting pads before products are applied.

 

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

  • No. Your lash procedure will be performed with the utmost care and proper technique. The product never touches the skin during the process. Redness around the eye may occur due to the product removal process (wiping the eyes with cotton rounds) but should disappear within a few minutes after the procedure.

 

How long does a lash lift take?

  • An lash lift takes approximately 45 minutes.

 

How long will a Lash Lift last?

  • A Lash Lift can last 6-8 weeks but can vary from person to person. There is no need for any maintenance appointments in between but you will need to have the process repeated every 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 6 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before.

 

Will I have a reaction to the solution?

  • Very few people have a reaction to the solution but that doesn’t mean you won’t be one of them. What one person reacts to, another is fine with. This is why you can opt to have a patch test 24 hours beforehand. A patch test is quick and simple. It consists of us placing 2 drops of solutions behind the ear for 15 minutes. Wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation for example.

 

I wear contact lenses, can I have this procedure?

  • Yes. However, we will ask you to remove them temporarily during the treatment.

 

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?

  • 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 anyway, but 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.

 

How do I clean my eyes?

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

 

Can I use an eyelash curler?

  • 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.
