Lash Lift FAQs: Welcome

What is a Lash Lift?

The lash lift procedure is a new take on the outdated Lash Perm. 

Using your natural lashes, we lift them from the root and curl them, making them look longer and giving you are beautiful, opened eye look. 

Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?

No, the procedure is totally painless.  You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment with little pads on your eyelids so it may feel a little strange being unable to open your eyes, but the pads are only on for 20min max.

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

Not at all. We are carefully trained and use quality products to ensure there is no damage to your natural lashes. We also know that waiting the correct amount of time in between your lift is important, which is why if you come back into the salon too soon, we might refuse to do your lift.

We have also brought in 'Lash Botox'- a nourishing treatment to add onto your Lash Lift. It repairs the proteins that are broken during a lash lift and treats your lashes with keratin and vitamins.  It makes your lashes smoother and gives them a thicker/fuller look with a visibly nicer grow out.

How long will a Lash Lift last?

A Lash Lift can last 8-10 weeks but can vary from person to person. You need to wait until all the lashes are 'back to normal' before getting them lifted again but you can have them tinted again, in between lifts, to freshen up your look. 

There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop prematurely such as swimming, using harsh products or heat or not following the aftercare correctly. 

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?

Yes, but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, the Elleebana Lash Lift Mascara has been custom made to use after a lash lift as other types can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

What is the aftercare for a Lash Lift?

The aftercare period is only for the first 24 hours after your lift.

During that time please don't touch or rub your lashes and no sleeping on them either (side or face sleepers this means you'll need to sleep on your back tonight)

Also, you can't use any products on your lashes (except for Elleevate Lash Lift Mascara if you wish) and avoid excess water and steam - so mind that dishwasher.

After 24hours you can treat your lashes as you normally would.

Do I need to do anything before my Lash Lift?

Just make sure you come to your appointment with clean, mascara free lashes. If you have any reside of mascara on it can create a barrier between the solutions and your lashes, making the lift not as effective. 

How often can I have a lash lift?

A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about 6-8 weeks and your lashes will be back to their natural look by around 8-10 weeks. You can repeat the treatment as long as your natural lashes are 90% back to their natural state.

What is Lash Botox?

Lash Botox is a deep repairing, conditioning treatment that you have done right after your lash lift. It repairs the proteins that are broken during a lash lift and treats your lashes with keratin and vitamins. It makes your lashes smoother and gives them a thicker/fuller look with a visibly nicer grow out. 

Can I have a Lash Lift if I have extensions on?

No sorry, we can't perform a Lash Lift if you have any lash extensions on. Once you have removed your extensions you may have a Lift 24 hours afterward - this gives time to make sure all the adhesive remover has been properly removed.

Will I have a reaction to the lotion?

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 24 hours beforehand.  A patch test is quick and simple.  It consists of us placing 2 drops of lotions behind the ear for 15 minutes. Wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation for example. If you think you might react to any of the products, just ask for a free consultation.
