This treatment is an instant ‘root lift’ for natural lashes. Lash Lift uses silicone moulds to lengthen and curl lashes to perfection.
Forget messy perming rods or clunky eyelash curlers, this new treatment defines and curls lashes in one relaxing treatment; the lashes literally sit upwards towards the brow line. It’s hugely popular with clients who don’t like the high-maintenance factor of lash extensions but who still want lashes that look amazingly long and have strong curvature.
How Does a Lash Lift Work?
A Lash Lift uses a specially created silicone pad and perm solution to lift your natural lashes from the root only, creating a subtle and natural looking lift. Many women prefer their lashes to have more lift than curl. However some prefer more curl than lift. A Lash Lift is flexible enough to accommodate either preference.
What can I expect during a lash lift appointment?
A lash lift appointment can take anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hours. During most of the appointment you’ll be lying down with your eyes closed. Most people take this time to relax or nap.
Your technician will start with a consultation and the after care will be explained. Next, gel pads, often containing a moisturizing or brightening serum will be placed under your eyes. After, you’ll be asked to close your eyes before the silicone forms are fitted onto your eyelids. Once your lashes have been sculpted into place onto the forms the lifting cream solution will be applied, followed by the fixing cream solution.
What is the after care?
In order for the lashes to set properly, they must be kept completely dry for 24 hours. This includes avoiding eye makeup and mascara. Once this period is over, it’s safe to get your lashes wet and use any type of skincare products or makeup.
How long does a lash lift last?
On average, a lash lift lasts up to 6-8 weeks. Lashes that have been lifted do not uncurl. Instead, they are shed during the natural lash cycle, and a new one is grown in its place. The speed of your lash cycle turnover will determine how long your lash lift will last. It’s recommended to wait at least 6 weeks before having another lash lift.
Who is this procedure NOT good for?

• Eye Infections/disorders
