"Are Lash Lifts Safe?" And other FAQs
Lash lifting is one of the newest trends to hit the lash industry, and it’s no wonder why. This short and simple lash service permanently curls the eyelashes, simultaneously eliminating the need for eyelash curlers, and waking up tired-looking eyes. But as with any new service—particularly one so close to the eyes—there can be some hesitation. So we’ve answered some Lash Lift FAQs to put your questions to rest, and help you decide if a lash lift is right for you.
What is a lash lift and tint?
A lash lift and tint is a lash service that permanently curls and tints natural eyelashes. Lash lifting is a new age lash perm that uses silicone shields and a series of cream-based products to curl natural eyelashes—eliminating the need for eyelash curlers. Unlike traditional eyelash perms, which use tight rods to give lashes an unnatural barrel curl, lash lifts use specially-shaped silicone shields to give natural lashes height while extending lashes to their full length. Lash tinting is often used in conjunction with lash lifting, although it can be done on its own, and permanently darkens the colour of the natural lashes. When used together, a lash lift and tint replaces the need for eyelash curlers and mascara.
Are lash lifts safe?
Lash lifts are very safe when provided by trained and experienced technicians. Sugarlash PRO’s Lash Lift products are cream-based, meaning they are easy to control and do not easily run into the eyes like liquid solutions would. When choosing a lash lift provider, always look for someone who is certified in lash lifting.
How long does a lash lift last?
The short answer is 6-8 weeks, but there’s a bit more to it than that. Lash lifting is a permanent service. That means, for the lifespan of each natural lash present at the time of a lash lift, that lash is permanently curled. But keep in mind that most people lose between 1 and 3 natural eyelashes per day. As mature lashes fall out, and new lashes grow in, you’ll notice the effect of the lash lift begin to lessen. By 6-8 weeks, you’ll have enough new growth to need another lash lift.
Are lash lifts worth it?
Absolutely. Lash lifting is an extremely low maintenance lash service that lasts up to 8 weeks, and requires almost no aftercare. The Sugarlash PRO Lash Lift permanently curls your natural eyelashes for the remainder of their life cycle, so you can kiss your lash curler goodbye. And unlike lash extensions, lash lifting allows you to rub your eyes and sleep in any position you want! Lash lifts are generally much less expensive than eyelash extensions, and the service only takes about 45 minutes.
Are lash lifts safe during pregnancy?
As with any cosmetic service, you should consult your physician before getting a lash lift. The products used in lash lifts do not touch the skin, however, if you do develop a reaction or sensitivity to lash lifting products, you may not be permitted to treat it with antihistamines. Pregnancy can also affect the rate at which hair grows, and even the hair’s texture, meaning pregnant clients may experience less lift than usual.
