What is a Lash Lift?
The lash lift procedure has revolutionized old, inadequate perming techniques. Using silicone pads instead of perm rods, this new technique can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look. No need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you 6-8 weeks and can be combined with a tint to leave the mascara behind.
Can a Lash Lift be used to compliment other treatments?
Yes! A lash Lift is enhanced when you use an eyelash growth product, such as RevitaLash, which is available in our store. While your lashes grow longer, our process controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them a uniform lifted look. Black eyelash tint is applied during the treatment to enhance the look of your lashes. See treatment price list here.
Is a Lash Lift the same as an eyelash perm?
No. The Lash Lift is a new and improved procedure, overcoming the ‘over curled’ look of its predecessor . Whilst the chemical procedure is identical to a perm, the difference is in the results. By ditching the old fashioned perm rollers (which curled back the lashes to the extent of the ‘dolly look’) the silicone pads used for this new procedure lift the lash from the root in either a straight or curled, upwards fashion that produces length and a bright eyed enhanced look.
Does the Lash Lift procedure hurt?
The procedure is totally painless. You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment and although it may feel a little strange being unable to open your eyes for this time, it offers you a chance to relax during the treatment.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting pads before products are applied.
Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes??
No. Select a carefully trained and skilled professional to ensure proper Lash Lift procedures are followed
How long does a Lash Lift take?
A lash lift can takes between 45 minutes to an hour from beginning to end. If you decide to have your eyelashes tinted, which will enhance the effect of your Lash Lift, the total procedure may take slightly longer.
How long will a Lash Lift last?
A Lash Lift can last 6-8 weeks but may vary from person to person. There is no need for any maintenance appointments in between Lash Lifts but you will need to have the process repeated every 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 4 weeks after having the initial treatment, but not before.
Will I have a reaction to the lotion?
Very few people have a reaction to the lotion, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be one of them. What one person reacts to, another is fine with. This is why you can opt to have a patch test 24 hours beforehand. A patch test is quick and simple. It consists of us placing 2 drops of lotions behind the ear for 15 minutes, wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation.
I wear contact lenses, can I have this procedure?
Yes. However, we will ask you to remove them temporarily during the treatment as the eyes will be closed throughout.
Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?
Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara is advised as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.
How do I clean my eyes?
Gently, using mild products. Always wait 24 hours after the procedure.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.
How often can I have a lash lift?
A lash lift will begin to naturally drop after about 2 months and your lashes will be back to their natural look. The lashes should drop evenly and will not look out of place. You can repeat the treatment after a minimum of one month if you feel you need to, or you can wait until they are back to their natural state.
Each lash extension is expertly applied one lash at a time and tailored specifically to your desired look. Advanced bookings are essential. Our Eyelash Extensions are weightless, look absolutely natural, feel great and will last 2 to 6 weeks. Eyelash Extensions fall out naturally with your lash lifecycle. Infills are recommended every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain your lashes.
We stock a number of varying lash lengths, thicknesses and curvatures to ensure a customized look to suit your eye shape
At Diamond Laser Medispa we give a consultation prior to the lash application. We will discuss the application process and your desired look.
Viewing from the top of your lashes means our artists have the best view of your natural lashes, ensuring natural, clump free results. We provide a Lash Brush for you to take home to guarantee your lashes are applied individually.
Russian Volume is an extremely advanced technique that only the experienced and highly skilled technician can offer. Sadly there are a lot of technicians offering this treatment, but they are not correctly trained and are using incorrect techniques, or overloading the natural lashes. Here at Diamond Laser Medispa we see this far too often, so please be warned when researching your therapist.
Russian Volume is the use of multiple ultra fine extensions, that are hand created at the time of application by the therapist using their specially designed tweezers. The therapist skilfully creates bouquets of eyelash extensions that are then placed onto the natural lash in a fanned effect, to create extra fluff, coverage and fullness than cannot be created with classic extensions. Although we use multiple extensions, the fan is still placed onto one individually isolated natural lash in a method that encases the natural lash, and results in great retention with zero damage.
