Lash Lift & Tint
What is a Lash Lift?
One way to think of a lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. Unlike lash extensions, a lash lift simply alters the shape of your natural lashes. “In most people, lashes grow out, rather than up. However, upward growing lashes will give a more cosmetically pleasing appearance,” notes board certified dermatologist, Dr. Josh Zeichner.
What happens during a Lash Lift?
When you walk into your first lash lift, you can expect to lie down on a bed. But you will not actually be able to see anything, or use your eyes (and therefore, phone) for the duration of your appointment. It is not painful, but it can be uncomfortable. Your eyes may tear a bit, but fortunately that will not negatively impact the process.
The appointment itself boils down to three key steps. First, silicone pads (that are fitted to your eyelid) are placed on the eyelids. Your lashes are then lifted, and a serum is applied to them. The first serum is to stick each individual eye lash to the silicone pad. Next, a lash perm serum is applied. It will process for 6 minutes. It will then be gently removed. A keratin lash sealer is then applied to help strengthen your lashes. The silicone pad is then gently removed, and you are ready to go!
Will a Lash Lift damage my lashes?
Lash lifts will not damage your lashes if done properly. Getting your lashes lifted usually motivates people to grow longer lashes and take better care of them naturally.
How long will my Lash Lift last?
Lash lifts will last anywhere from 6-8 weeks.
What is a Lash Tint?
The tint will intensify your natural lashes by darkening them and adding definition to the eye. The tint itself is like what hairdressers us on hair, except it is specifically developed to be safe around the eye area. It processes in 6 minutes and then is removed with a cotton square.
How long will a Lash Tint last?
Your average eyelash tint lasts 4 weeks. Your lashes will gradually start looking lighter and lighter, not because the dye has faded but because the lashes that were coated with dye have slowly fell out, which is what happens naturally.
Are Lash Tints unhealthy for your lashes?
Lash Tinting is not unhealthy for your lashes, but it can dry them out over time. We recommend using a lash conditioning serum after the service to maintain healthy and strong lashes.
