Read the answers to the most common FAQs first before you book your lash lift appointment today…
What is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift is a revolutionary eyelash treatment that creates incredible length, volume and lift in your natural lashes: no mascara, no extensions, no maintenance. Whether your lashes are short, thick, stubborn or simply don’t stand out as much as you’d like them to, a lash lift is a great way to enhance what you already have (and will save you so much time when getting ready!).
What Happens During a Lash Lift Treatment?
- Your beauty therapist will place a silicone pad on each of your eyelids, which help to achieve an even curl, with a gentle adhesive solution.
- Your natural lashes are then combed over the pad and held in place with said solution.
- To begin the reshaping process, a perming solution is applied upwards from the root of your lashes and is left to process.
- Next, your therapist will apply a neutralising solution to strengthen the new curled shape.
- The silicon pad is removed from your lashes.
- If you book a lash tint with your lash lift, a tint is now applied and left to process.
- Finally, your lashes will be treated with a conditioning agent to re-soften and protect the permed lashes after the treatment.
Can You Get a Lash Tint With a Lash Lift?
Of course! Lash tinting consists of using a special dye to darken your lashes so, when paired with a lash lift, achieves an effortless mascara look for weeks without needing to apply any eye makeup whatsoever.
Do Lash Lifts Damage Your Eyelashes?
The short answer is NO, lash lifts do not damage your eyelashes. As long as you choose an experienced and, most importantly, certified beauty technician, your natural eyelashes will not be damaged in the slightest.
A lash lift can only damage your lashes if the therapist over-processes them OR if you have the treatment redone too soon after a previous one, which is why you should wait at least four weeks between treatments.
Are Lash Lifts Safe?
Again, there’s no need to worry about having a treatment near your eyes as the whole lash lift process is really straightforward – plus you’ll have your eyes closed the entire time so may even find it relaxing! As long as you are with a reliable and reputable therapist, everything will be smooth sailing.
Reassuringly, you will be required to do a patch test at least 48 hours prior to your treatment to ensure that you are not allergic to or irritated by any products used in the treatment.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
The results of a lash lift last from 6 to 8 weeks – ideal for people with busy lifestyles or for anyone who wants to make their beauty routine easier.
The results are immediate, plus the added lash tint creates a mascara-type effect so you can wake up with flawless lashes and be ready to go (just think of all that extra time in bed!).
How Long Does a Lash Lift Treatment Take?
With a qualified lash technician, your lash lift will only take 60 minutes.
If you were to add up all the time you’d spend applying false eyelashes, curling your natural ones and applying mascara across 6-8 weeks, a 60 minute treatment sounds like a dream!
How Much Does A Lash Lift Cost?
A Lash Lift with Greenwich Spa’s experienced lash technicians range from just £65 for a Lash Lift with Tinting to £70 for a Lash Lift with Tinting and Eyebrow Shaping.
Can You Wear Mascara With A Lash Lift?
Yes! There’s no reason you can’t wear mascara to further enhance your beautiful lash lift. Just don’t apply any eye makeup within the first 24 hours after your treatment. Furthermore, remember to avoid waterproof mascara as it could damage your lash lift curl and impact the longevity of the treatment.
What Is The Difference Between a Lash Lift and Lash Extensions?
While a lash lift makes your natural eyelashes look fuller and longer, lash extensions consist of adding lash-like hairs to your lashes; like hair extensions for your eyelashes! Lash lifts tend to be much more cost-effective and tend to last longer than lash extensions.
