LASH LIFT / TINT
The Elleebana Lash Lift is a semi-permanent treatment that gives your natural lashes an illusion of perfectly curled lashes with added definition. It is a great alternative to eyelash extensions, as it requires very little maintenance and has long lasting results.
How long does the treatment take?
Depending on the length and health of your natural lashes, the treatment takes about 45-60 minutes with a tint.
How is a lash lift different to a lash perm?
With the Elleebana lash lift treatment, lashes are lifted from the root to give that just curled look rather than curling at the tips. Thus creating the illusion of longer, thicker lashes.
What is the actual process for the lash lift?
The process is relaxing in nature. After you lie down on the table, your lash artist will cover your lower lashes with a soothing gel pad to protect your lower lashes during the application. You then relax with your eyes closed. Based on the size of your lashes, I will choose the appropriate silicone pad size to “lift” your lashes and apply lash adhesive which is water soluble. I will then brush back the lashes so they attach to the silicone pad and apply the specialized eyelash activating solution. Depending on the size and shape of your lashes, the activation solution will sit on your lashes from 6-10 minutes. The activator is then removed with a conditioning neutraliser solution which will sit on your lashes for 5 minutes. Q-tips with water will then be used to remove product and pads. Usually a tint will follow.
Is the procedure safe and painless?
Yes. Lashes are lifted onto specially shaped lifting silicone pads before products are applied so no solutions will be touching your skin. A water soluble and gentle adhesive is used to attach the rod. A patch test of the adhesive and solutions can be done 72 hrs before if you have sensitive skin, this is up to you!
Will this service damage my natural lashes?
When performed by a carefully trained and skilled professional, the lash lift procedure will not damage your natural lashes. We treat your lashes with the utmost care and proper technique.
How do I care for my lashes post treatment?
Immediately after the procedure avoid steam for 24 hours and discontinue the use of lash growth products for 48 hours. After 24 hours, exposure to steam will not affect your lashes and after 48 hours you can resume the use of eyelash growth products. Mascara can be applied after 24 hours.
