What are Lash Lifts?
Everything you want to know about Lash Lifts in Long Beach
You’ve probably noticed the buzz surrounding eyelash lifts lately, so what are they? Lash lifts and tints are one of the biggest beauty trends currently–but they’re different from eyelash extensions and fake eyelashes. Brow Heaven Lash lifts in Long Beach can help you get bigger, fuller, curlier eyelashes and you can customize your results from the shape of your curl to adding a tint if you don’t plan on wearing mascara every day.
Not only does the procedure require little effort, it also lasts longer than eyelash extensions with fewer potential side effects.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that curls your eyelashes form base to tip so you can see their full length. It enhances your natural eyelashes but in a more natural form than the dramatic extra length you may get from a lash extension or false eyelashes. If you’re going on vacation or prefer a low-maintenance makeup routine, you can opt for a lash lift and tint to deepen the color of your eyelashes in addition to the more dramatic curve.
How does the lash lift procedure work?
The wonderful and experienced technicians at Brow Heaven in Long Beach will walk you through the procedure with a consultation. After discussing your goals (i.e. if you want lashes pushed upward or fanned out), the work begins. The technician separates your lower and upper lashes and applies a silicone pad to your upper lid. A special serum is then used to break down the keratin protein in your lashes, allowing your technician to shape, sculpt, and lift them around a special silicone mold. The keratin is then added back into the lashes with another serum—and voilà!—lifted, curled lashes.
How long will it take and how long does a lash lift last?
The service takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour. While you might feel a little bit odd about someone fussing with your lashes, you’ll likely be able to relax and chill out during that time in Brow Heaven’s serene salon.
The lash lift can last anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks; this can depend on how quickly your lashes grow and how much care of your eyelashes you take. You can try to extend the results by using eyelash growth serums, but the treatment is not meant to be permanent.
How much does a lash lift cost?
The cost of lash lifts can vary from $75 to $175. The wonderfully trained technicians at Brow Heaven currently charge an amazingly affordable price of only $50!
Who is the best candidate for a lash lift?
Nearly anyone is a candidate for a lift as long as they have lashes, however you’ll often get the best results when beginning with healthy lashes. If you’re planning on ongoing lash lifts treatments, your technician will most likely suggest you use a conditioning lash serum in between visits.
While extensions may yield a more dramatic end result, lash lifts are perfect for a more natural look. The other benefit? There’s no need to come back in for touch-ups, like there is with extensions.
What do you need to do immediately after a lash lift?
The first 48 hours post-lash lift are super important. During this time, it’s essential to keep lashes completely bare. That means no mascara, serum, or eye creams.
Getting them wet can also undo the results. Avoid steam, any exercise that will make you super sweaty, washing your hair in the shower, and use oil-free makeup wipes to cleanse your face.
After those 48 hours are up, be gentle with your lashes moving forward. Avoid rubbing your eyes and don’t use a curler.
