How long does the lash lift last?
Depending on the length, condition, and shedding cycle of your lashes, the lash perm can last up to two months or longer, but can vary from person to person. It is recommended having the process repeated every 4-6 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 4 weeks of having the initial treatment, but not before.
What can I expect during the lash lift procedure?
The procedure is totally painless and very relaxing. Your eyes will be 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, so let all your cares and worries melt away. The processing times may vary slightly depending on eyelash hair types. The procedure can take anywhere from about 45-60mins. Maybe a little longer if you decide to have your eyelashes tinted which will enhance the effect of your lash perm.
Does the lash lift procedure hurt?
No, the procedure is completely safe! The product is cream based and will not run into the eyes. The only thing that may leave a slight tingle is the tint.
Are there any side effects?
During the process, the product never touches your skin. Redness around the eye may occur due to the product removal process (wiping eyes with cotton rounds), but should disappear within a few minutes after the procedure. Very few people have a reaction to the lotion 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 48-72 hours beforehand. If you are unsure, please contact me or schedule an appointment for a patch test. IMPORTANT! If you have had any known eye disorders in the past, please discuss this with me at the time of booking.
I wear contact lenses, can I have this procedure done?
Yes. However, you will be asked to remove them temporarily during the treatment, as the eyes will be closed throughout.
Can I wear makeup after my lash perm?
Yes, but please 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, after 24 hours non-waterproof mascara is recommended as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.
When should I come back for my maintenance procedure?
A lash perm will begin to naturally drop after about 2 months and your lashes will be back to their natural look. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state. I do recommend that you re-lift your lashes every 4-6 weeks to maintain the Lash Perm.
