EVERYTHING you need to know about a Lash Lift!
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 8 to 10 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 45 to 60 mins to complete. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!
Why would I get this over lash extensions?
Lash extensions and lash lifts are 2 totally different animals. Lifts do not add any additional lashes. We will simply be curling your natural lashes. If you lack the fullness you desire, the extensions are definitely the route you should go. If it simply comes down to wanting length and more curl, try the lash lift, a tint and a few months of our RevitaLash serum and see what you think. You will be thrilled with the results! And the best part is, you can do still get a lash lift while wearing lash extensions!
How do I need to prep for the treatment?
PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT COMPLETELY FREE OF EYE MAKE UP! If you wear contacts, they must be removed.
What are the post treatment instructions?
Pretty simple: Don't get your lashes wet or apply anything at all to them for 24 hours.
Can I book this on the same day as a facial?
Is there any maintenance?
None at all! You don't have to do anything special with your lashes in between lifts.
Can I still wear mascara?
Of course! After waiting 24 hours, you'll just achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your curled lashes.
Have you been trained in this service?
Our eyelash techs are trained in the Australian Elleebana Lash Lift.
Will this damage my eyelashes?
No. 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?
It's 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. Give the treatment a shot once, and let's see how your lashes hold the curl.
Is it painful?
No. At first, when applying the shields to the eyelids, it may feel a bit strange. But, for the most part, it's very relaxing! You just kick back and relax :)
I use RevitaLash®. Can I get this treatment?
Yes. Some of the most dramatic results I've achieved have been from those using RevitaLash® because their lashes are already so long.
I have downward-pointing lashes, will this be a good treatment for me?
Heck yes! Anyone with these types of pesky lashes will love the lash lift! Post treatment, your lashes will all be evenly dispersed and lifted.
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 8 to 12 weeks.
I have very very short lashes. Am I able to still do this procedure?
Most of the time, yes. Though it can be challenging if the lashes aren't even long enough to bring up and back on to the shield. But again, start with our RevitaLash regimen for a few weeks then come in for your lift and tint and see what you think.
I have glaucoma, can I have this procedure?
If ever in doubt, always consult with your physician.
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.)
