A lash lift is an all-natural, semi-permanent procedure that gives you the appearance of fuller, thicker eyelashes without the use of any leave-on chemicals or extensions. The natural lashes are boosted from the root, giving them a lifted, lengthened appearance.
Lash lift is a beauty treatment that is used to enhance the appearance of the eyelashes by curling and lifting them. The treatment involves using a chemical solution to break down the bonds in the hair, allowing it to be molded into a curled shape.
Here are the steps involved in a lash lift treatment:
The lashes are cleaned to remove any dirt or makeup.
A silicone shield is placed on the eyelid, as close to the lash line as possible.
The lashes are lifted and secured to the shield using a water-soluble adhesive.
A perming solution is applied to the lashes, which breaks down the disulfide bonds in the hair and allows it to be reshaped.
A neutralizing solution is applied to the lashes to set the new shape.
The lashes are tinted, if desired, to enhance their color and definition.
The adhesive is removed and the lashes are combed through to separate and define them.
Lash lift treatments typically last around 6-8 weeks, depending on the individual’s lash growth cycle. It is important to avoid getting the lashes wet or applying any makeup or oil-based products to the lashes for at least 24 hours after the treatment. Lash lift should be done by a trained professional to ensure that it is done safely and effectively.
The technician will clean the eye area and place a protective pad over the lower lashes to prevent them from sticking to the upper lashes.
A silicone pad is placed on the upper eyelid, and the lashes are then lifted and pressed onto the pad using a special adhesive.
