Lash Lift FAQs


What is a Lash Lift?

The lash lift procedure has revolutionised old, inadequate perming techniques. Using silicone pads instead of perm rods, this new technique can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look. No need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you 6-8 weeks and can be combined with a tint to leave the mascara behind. 

Is a Lash Lift the same as an eyelash perm?

No the Lash lift is a new, improved procedure, overcoming the ‘over curled’ look of its predecessor . Whilst the chemical procedure is identical to a perm, the difference is in the results. By ditching the old fashioned perm rollers which curled  back the lashes to the extent of the ‘dolly look’, the silicone pads used for this  new procedure lifts the lash from the root in either a straight or curled, upwards fashion that produces length and a bright eyed enhanced look.

Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?

No the procedure is totally painless.  You will have your eyes 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.

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

No. Select a carefully trained and skilled Professional to ensure proper Lash Lift procedures are followed and make sure you don't try to have them Lifted again too soon after your initial treatment.

How long will a Lash Lift last?

A Lash Lift can last 8-10 weeks but can vary from person to person.  There is no need for any maintenance appointments in between expect if you want to freshen up your tint. You will need to have the process repeated every 2-3 months to lift the new hair growth once your hairs become straight again. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. 

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.

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 your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a Elleebana Lash Lift Mascara is advised as others can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.

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.
