Lash Lifting: Answers to Your Most Frequently Asked Questions

lash lifts

Skip your daily lash routine with the help of lash lifts. This natural process is great in comparison to other treatments like extensions. Here are some helpful tips for what to expect during the lash lifting process.

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is a natural way to get longer, fuller lashes. Using silicon rods and a Keratin-based lifting lotion, it is a safer and quicker method of achieving beautiful lashes.

How long does the lift take?

Lash lifts are a quick process – they take under 30 minutes!

Is it safe?

Absolutely! Our expert technicians are trained to make the process easy and relaxing.

Can I wear contact lenses to the appointment?

We ask that you remove your contacts for the length of the appointment. Don’t worry- we’ll be doing all the work, so you can lay back and relax.

Is it damaging? Will I have a reaction?

No! Unlike eyelash curlers or extensions, the process is not damaging, and the majority of patients do not experience any reactions. This is another bonus when compared to treatments like extensions, where patients react to the glue that is used.

Can I use my eyelash curler?

No. There should not be any need for an eyelash curler, but using one can lead to breakage in lashes post-treatment.

How long will the lift last?

The lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks even with activities like swimming or exercising.

Will I need to come in for maintenance?

No! Unlike lash extensions, which require fill-ins, you will only need to return when your lashes naturally grow out after two to three months.

Can I wear eye makeup to the appointment?

No. We ask that you thoroughly remove all makeup before arriving to ensure the lotion we use adheres to your lashes and gives the best results possible.

Can I wear mascara after the lash lift?

While it is okay to wear mascara post-treatment, we suggest you avoid waterproof mascara and harsh makeup removers as these are damaging to lashes. If you’d like to ditch your mascara completely, we offer lash tinting for a small additional cost to darken your lashes for a natural look.

Can I get lash tinting the same day as the lifts?

Yes! You can add lash tinting to your appointment for an additional fee.

Is there any reason I can’t get lash lifts?

The most common reason patients are turned away from lifts is if their lashes are too short to work with the rods. We suggest you use a lash serum to grow your lashes, then return once they are longer.

Why should I choose lash lifts over lash extensions?

Lash lifts are far less damaging, last longer, and look more natural than extensions. Call ANU Medical Spa today to talk with one of our consultants and book your lash lift appointment. Be sure to mention lash tinting if you are interested in adding it to your treatment!
