Lash lifting is a great way to temporarily curl and lift the eyelashes in order to create a more open, awake appearance. Many people find it a great substitute for mascara when they get tired of applying make-up. Eyelash curling is a quick, safe procedure that lasts from two weeks to a month.
Eyelash lifting is done via a perming solution that curls your lashes in the same way that your hair would be curled. First, a roller is applied to the eyelid. The eyelashes are then temporarily glued to the roller and a perming solution is applied. After the solution has been given time to develop, it is removed with the rollers.
Please remove all of eye makeup before coming in for the treatment. The perming solution will have the best result on completely bare hair. Let your provider know if you have any history of sensitivities or allergies to products.
Before your treatment, your eyelids and lashes will be gently cleansed. A pad to protect your eyelids will be placed prior to the procedure. You may feel a mild sensation similar to how it feels to apply mascara. You will be required to keep your eyes closed for the duration of the procedure.
After your procedure, be as gentle as possible with your eyelashes as the perming solution sets. In the days following, be careful not to scrub too hard when taking off makeup. Just like the hair on your head - messing with it too much will put the "styling" into disarray. The more gentle you are, the longer the results will last.
Lash lifting is a relaxing procedure. Most people state that it feels like putting on mascara, except that you have to keep your eyes closed.
You can wear your eye makeup as usual, just be sure to use gentle eye makeup remover and avoid scrubbing the areas.
