This treatment is ideal for those that want a little extra oomph from their natural lashes, but without all the maintenance of lash extensions, or the daily use of an eyelash curler.
Frequently asked questions
What is a Lash Lift?
The Elleebana Lash Lift is a lifting technique designed to make your natural lashes curled and longer looking. This creates curl, separation, and a defined lash that can last up to 8 weeks! A semi-permanent black lash tint (optional) that can be added will create a more prominent look. The procedure takes about 60 minutes and up to 75 minutes with tint to complete. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!
How do I need to prepare for the treatment?
PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT COMPLETELY FREE OF EYE MAKE UP! You must stop usage of waterproof mascara at least 2 days prior to your Lift. Please do not wear contacts // remove contacts for service.
Is this like lash extension where they will look dramatically thicker?
What are the post treatment instructions?
_ don't get your lashes wet
_ don’t apply anything at all to them for 24 hours
_ no waterproof mascara the entire life of your Lift
_ steam // hot saunas will soften the lift
_ brush out the lashes daily
_ use a nourishing mascara like our Xtreme Lashes Length + Volume mascara :: vitamin B5-enriched, water-based formula //long-lasting formula adds length and volume without clumps, flakes, or smudges // safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
Can I book this on the same day as a facial?
Absolutely but after only the facial.
Is there any maintenance?
Why can’t I wear waterproof mascara?
Waterproof formulas contain harsh ingredients in order to make them waterproof. This chemical composition is extremely drying to your lashes. Removing waterproof formulas will have most people use extra tugging and pulling on the lashes to remove the mascara. The majority of people do not thoroughly remove waterproof mascara. Which results in you having a harden, dehydrating coating that will weakened lashes, cause breakage, and over shedding.
Can I still wear mascara?
Absolutely! You'll just achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your curled lashes.
Do you use any products containing latex or formaldehyde?
No, we do not use products containing latex or formaldehyde.
Why do I have to stop wearing waterproof mascara 2 days before?
If you are a regular waterproof mascara wearer, your lashes might be dehydrated and weakened from the residue which will result in a poor Lift and possible further damage.
How is this treatment any different than a lash perm?
We use silicone domed shields that lift the lashes from the root, producing a beautiful, uplifted look. This method allows the straightening and lifting of lashes that conditions and nourish. This is a faster processing formulation and formaldehyde-free. The older lash perms of years past use tiny little rods that product a way too inverted curl. Others, use a type of lash curler/clamp which can be uncomfortable and difficult to work with.
Will this damage my eyelashes?
Not if you follow the preparation and post care instructions. The lifting solution is only applied to the new growth area and base but never to the tips of the lashes. We finish the service with a conditioning and nourshing cream :: the lash botox.
Are some lashes resistant to the curl?
Rarely - it very difficult and sometimes not possible to sustain the curl with lashes that have a strong cowlick or slanted growth pattern. Also, growth patterns due to plastic surgery in the eye area are often not able to be corrected. As stated, it is uncommon to encounter this lash type.
Is it painful?
Not at all! It may feel a bit strange when applying the silicone pads, otherwise, it's extremely relaxing! Most clients fall right to sleep 💤
I use a lash growth serum. Can I get this treatment?
Yes. Some of the most beautiful dramatic results have been achieved with those using a lash growth serum.
I have downward-pointing lashes, will this be a good treatment for me?
This is perfect for downward lashes! Anyone with this lash type will love the lash lift! Post treatment :: your lashes will all be evenly dispersed and lifted
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 6 to 8 weeks.
I have very very short lashes. Am I able to still do this procedure?
Most of the time, yes. We have multiple sizes to use. Unless, the lashes are less than 5 mm they might not long enough to bring up and back on to the shield.
I have glaucoma, can I have this procedure?
Yes, but always consult with your physician
