A lash lift is a treatment where you feel truly pampered each and every step of the way. From walking into the salon to weeks later still sporting my ideal lashes, it all feels like a dream come true.
After arriving at your appointment, the first step is to sit down with your lash specialist and discuss exactly what it is you are looking for. Do you want your eyelashes as upright as possible? Do you prefer your lashes at more of an angle?
The two of you will discuss your natural lashes, as well as their curl pattern and sparsity or denseness. These are all important factors when it comes to making your eyelashes as perfect as possible. Once you have settled on a plan of action that is both achievable and beautiful, it is finally time to begin the process itself.
You will lie back, close your eyes, and prepare to indulge. This treatment can actually be so relaxing that it is not uncommon for people to fall asleep in the middle of having it done. While I have never gotten quite that far, it’s been a close thing once or twice.
Your specialist will remove any eye makeup or other build-up from your eye, ensuring a totally clean surface to work on. This will allow the solution to fully adhere to your lashes, so your results will be wonderful every time.
Once your eyelids and lashes are clean, a piece of silicone will be applied to your upper lid. This pad serves two purposes. For one, it gives any extra solution a place to fall other than your skin. For another thing, it gives your lashes something to adhere to when it is time to point them vertically. Next, your lashes are gently brushed upward and stuck to the silicone pad.
Now it is time for the curling solution itself to be applied. This solution works to remove the hairs’ natural curl pattern so that it can be retrained to be even more beautiful. Your lashes will be curled to the desired angle you and your specialist discussed beforehand, and you are almost done!
A calming solution is now applied to your lashes, locking in their new curl pattern. After that, a moisturizing agent may or may not be applied to your lashes. It simply depends on your lashes, your technician, and their process.
Total, the process generally takes about forty-five minutes to an hour. When you consider how long the treatment can last (more on that later), that time commitment seems increasingly minimal.
