Lash Lift FAQs
How long does the Lashes treatment take?
The Lashes treatment takes about an hour from start to finish.
Does the Lashes treatment hurt?
No, this treatment is 100% pain free!
What makes the Lashes treatment different from an eyelash perm?
The Lashes treatment and a typical eyelash perm are very different. First off, an eyelash perm curls the delicate eyelash hair, which gives the hair an obvious curl but doesn’t do much more. Eyelash perms also use very harsh chemicals that can severely damage or break the natural lash, and can do a lot of damage to the eye if there is a sloppy application.
The Lashes treatment takes your natural lashes and delicately lifts them from the root to make them appear longer and more full. We are also able to comb and separate each lash in the process to give the appearance of a more full, more voluminous lash line. The eye appears bigger, the lashes appear longer, and we apply a complimentary tint to give the eyes a great “pop!” Aside from that, the formula is a very gentle keratin protein treatment that adds nutrients and vitamins into the eyelashes. It’s hypo-allergenic, cruelty free, and extremely nourishing. What’s not to love?!
How long does this treatment last for, and how often can I get it done?
This treatment lasts anywhere from 8-12 weeks, or a whole cycle of the natural eyelash. Eyelashes grow and naturally fall out every 60-90 days. With that being said, depending on the individual, around week 7 you may notice new straight lashes growing in among the previously lifted lashes. a coat of mascara will tuck the straight lashes up with the already lifted ones but you may want to consider booking another treatment In the coming weeks. most guests come for treatments every 6-10 weeks.
This treatment is safe to maintain after 4 weeks.
Can I get the Lashes treatment done if i’m pregnant or breast feeding?
Absolutely! This treatment is 100% safe for any new mom, or mom to be. However, with all the additional hormones in the body during the time of pregnancy, or post partum, there is no guarantee the treatment will take and manipulate the curl pattern of your natural eyelashes. If you choose to go ahead with the treatment during these delicate times, use your discretion and understand you may experience no change to the natural eyelash.
I have eyelash extensions, can I get a Lash Lift?
No, you may not get a Lash Lift with eyelash extension applied. However, this is a great treatment to get before you get your extensions put on. If you have very straight, or extremely curly eyelashes, getting a Lash Lift before getting your eyelash extensions installed can help make the natural eyelashes blend better.
