Lash Lifts in Heathfield
The lash lift is like the beauty equivalent to a push up bra for your lashes. The treatment gives an instant lift, separation and definintion without the use of extensions.
So, how is it done?
Silicone pads that mould to the shape of your lash line are adhered to the eyelid. A bonding gel then grips the natural lashes onto the pads in an upwards and outwards direction, so that the lashes are pointing straight up to the brows. (This is where the technology is more advanced than a lash “perm” as there are no cylindrical rods, which can accidentally over curl the lashes back onto themselves). A perm solution, followed by a neutraliser are applied, followed by a lash conditioner to nourish the natural lashes, and finally a lash tint to complete the transformation (if required).
How long does it last?
The effects last between 6-8 weeks depending on your lash type.
Can I wear mascara afterwards?
Yes of course, but I do not recommend waterproof mascara or the use of mascara remover as they can weaken the perm.
Do I need a patch test?
Yes, absolutely, even if you've had them done elsewhere. This must be done at least 48 hours prior to the treatment. Its better to be safe than sorry.
What do I need to do after my Lash Lift?
During the next 48 hours post-treatment you do need to give your lashes a little bit of TLC and special attention, to ensure you get the maximum results from your lashes. Following the correct aftercare is important, as your lashes are still getting used to their new shape, and failure to do so could lead to an adverse reaction.
After this time period you can shower, but avoid submerging your head and face fully in the bath or directly under the shower head. Completely avoid visiting saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and sunbeds for 48 hours post treatment. The high temperature can cause your lashes to drop, or not last as long as they should, which is between 6 and 8 weeks.
Another thing to consider is how you sleep. Facing down into the pillow, or sleeping on one side could manipulate the shape of your lashes into different positions. If this sounds like you, try propping up your head with pillows, and making an effect to fall asleep on your back.
