WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?


Forget harsh perms! A lash lift is a semi-permanent cosmetic treatment designed to gently lift and curl your natural lashes, creating the appearance of longer, fuller lashes without mascara. This low-maintenance treatment utilizes safe solutions to achieve a beautiful, wide-eyed look that can last up to 6+ weeks, depending on your natural lash cycle and care routine.


TEMPTED BY A DRAMATIC LOOK? WE CAN HELP!


While lash lifts typically create a subtle and natural curl, we understand that some clients crave a bolder look. During your consultation, our experienced lash technicians can discuss your desired results and tailor the lash lift treatment to achieve the perfect curl and lift for your unique lashes.


THE PROCESS?


The lash lift process starts with your skilled lash artist gently applying a small silicone mould to your eyelid, carefully lifting and securing your lashes onto the mould. Specialized solutions are then administered to begin the process, effectively lifting and firmly shaping your lashes into their new, attractive form. This process is generally painless and typically concludes within about 45 minutes.


HOW MUCH DOES IT?


A lash lift service costs $85 in Calgary. The longevity of the results varies, lasting between 6 to 8 weeks, contingent upon your natural lash growth cycle and the level of care they receive. You can find more information about our lash lift service on our website


LASH LIFTS VS. EXTENSIONS: CHOOSE THE RIGHT OPTION


Both lash lifts and extensions enhance your lashes, but they cater to different preferences. Lash lifts accentuate your natural lashes, while extensions involve applying individual synthetic lashes for dramatic length and volume. If you adore your natural lashes but desire a lifted and defined look, a lash lift is ideal. Craving show-stopping lashes? Extensions might be the perfect choice for you!



ARE LASH LIFTS SAFE?


Safety is paramount! When performed by a certified professional using top-grade products and correct methods, lash lifts are safe for most people. However, incorrect application or excessive treatment can lead to dryness, irritation, or, in rare instances, breakage. That's why choosing a reputable salon with experienced technicians is crucial.


DO THEY DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?

The major concern: do lash lifts cause damage? When performed by a certified professional using top-grade products and correct methods, lash lifts are usually safe for the majority. Nonetheless, incorrect application or excessive treatment might result in dryness, chemical irritation, or, in rare instances, breakage. Therefore, selecting a reputable salon and adhering to post-treatment care instructions are crucial for achieving the safest and most effective lash lift results!


ARE THEY PAINFUL?

No need to worry, lash lifts are typically painless! While you might experience a mild tingling sensation when the solutions are applied, it's nothing significant. Many individuals find the experience to be relaxing and indulgent.


CAN I DO A DIY LASH LIFT INSTEAD?

Although DIY lash lift kits are accessible, it's highly advised to entrust this procedure to trained professionals. The process demands specialized expertise, and using incorrect products or methods may pose risks to your eyes. Rest assured, your lashes (and your eyes) deserve the expertise of a professional!


CAN I USE MASCARA ON MY LIFTED LASHES?

Absolutely! You can continue to enhance your lashes with mascara after a lash lift. In fact, it will accentuate the lifted and well-defined shape of your lashes. Simply wait for a minimum of 24 hours before application.


WHAT SHOULD MY LASHES LOOK LIKE?

Prepare for an influx of compliments. A lash lift will accentuate your eyes, lending them a more open and awakened appearance. Additionally, clients have the option to request a lash tint post-lift for darker and fuller-looking lashes. Say farewell to mascara and lash curlers, and streamline your beauty regimen, highlighting the time-saving benefits of the procedure.

WANT TO EXTEND THE LIFT OF YOUR LASH LIFT?


Adoreyes Eyelash Serum

Consider incorporating a lash growth serum alongside your lash lift! Look for a serum enriched with nourishing ingredients like peptides and biotin to strengthen and condition your lashes. It's important to wait at least 24 hours after your lash lift before applying any serums or other products to your lashes.


We Recommend ADOREYES Plus Eyelash Serum, but a consultation with your lash technician can help you find the perfect product for your needs.


LASH LIFT AFTERCARE


Consider lash lift aftercare as giving your lashes a pampering session post-treatment! During the initial 24 hours, refrain from exposing your lashes to water, excessive touching, or makeup application. Subsequently, handle them delicately, steer clear of eye rubbing, and opt for oil-free makeup removers.



FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


How long does a lash lift last?

A lash lift typically lasts anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. However, this can vary depending on your individual lash growth cycle and how well you care for them. With proper aftercare, you can potentially extend your results for a few extra weeks.


How long does a lash lift take?

A lash lift appointment usually takes around 45 minutes, although this may vary slightly depending on the salon and your specific lashes.


How long after a lash lift can I shower?

It's crucial to wait at least 24 hours after your lash lift before showering or coming into contact with water. This allows the lifting solutions to set properly and ensures your lashes retain their beautiful curl.


DIFFERENCE FROM A TRADITIONAL EYELASH PERM


In the past, eyelash perms were the go-to option for achieving a lifted lash look. However, technology and techniques have evolved, introducing the gentler and more modern lash lift. While they share some similarities, there are key differences to consider:


Technique:

Lash perms use small rods to curl the lashes from root to tip, often resulting in a dramatic curl that can sometimes appear unnatural. Lash lifts, on the other hand, utilize silicone molds that gently lift and shape the lashes from the base, creating a more subtle and natural-looking curl.


Chemicals: 

Lash lift solutions are generally milder compared to traditional perms. This reduces the risk of damage to the lashes and makes lash lifts suitable for most people.


Results: 

Eyelash perms can sometimes leave lashes looking stiff or over-curled. Lash lifts provide a more natural and defined curl that lasts for 6-8 weeks, depending on your lash cycle and care.


So, which one is right for you?


If you desire a dramatic curl and don't mind a more high-maintenance approach, a lash perm might be an option. However, for a more natural-looking and gentle curl with long-lasting results, a lash lift is generally the preferred choice.
