Do you know eyelash enhancement, more commonly called lash lift or lash botox? If you’re like many other women and your biggest makeup struggle is definitely the look of your eyelashes, the eyelash enhancement treatment will change your life! Here are eight things you need to know before you get started.
What are the benefits of lash lift ?
The lash lift will not damage your eyelashes
The lash lift uses products equivalent to Brazilian hair straightening. It is associated with keratin treatments and nutritious and protective oils, to deeply nourish the eyelashes. It is gentler than perm and eyelash lift, two techniques that use a more aggressive chemical base. Even those with sensitive eyes will find what they are looking for.
Lifting makes the most of your natural eyelashes
This technique is therefore ideal for those who want an enlarged look and a natural result. The eyelashes are modeled using silicone patches applied to the mobile eyelid of the eye. Once glued to the patch, the eyelashes gradually adopt the desired curve.
The treatment is not painful
But the time may seem long because you have to keep your eyes closed for the duration of the treatment (between 45 minutes and 1 hour 45 minutes).
The effect of the lash lift can last up to six weeks
The results of the lash lift last between three and six weeks, enough to make your eyelashes flutter for a whole month!
Recommendations to follow when doing a lash lift
Avoid wetting your eyelashes or sunbathing
During the 24 hours following the treatment, you should not expose yourself to the sun or put water on your eyes, especially for those who are tinting their eyelashes in addition to the lash lift.
To keep pretty eyelashes soft and smooth, they must be brushed daily
After the lift, you should brush your eyelashes every day using an eyelash comb.
Do not use waterproof mascara
To prolong the effects of the treatment, waterproof mascara should be avoided. More difficult to remove because of its powerful chemical formula, it will make your eyelashes brittle when removing makeup, which would considerably reduce the effects of the lashes enhancement.
On the day of the lash lifting, you must arrive without make-up
Avoid eye makeup on D-Day, your eyelashes must be completely natural. For contact lens wearers, they will also have to be removed before the treatment.
