What Is a Lash Lift and How Long Does It Last?

Article by Sherrill Daltiz · Nov 02, 2023

Are you tired of using eyelash curlers every morning to achieve that wide-eyed, lifted lash look? You may even want to save the hassle of applying mascara every day, or having to wash it off at night. If so, a lash lift might be the solution you’ve been searching for. In this article, we’ll delve into what a lash lift is, how it works, and most importantly, how long you can expect those beautifully lifted lashes to last.

What Is a Lash Lift?

A lash lift is a semi-permanent beauty treatment that enhances and lifts your natural eyelashes. It’s like a “perm” for your lashes, but without the harsh chemicals and damaging effects often associated with traditional eyelash perms. The procedure involves carefully curling your lashes from the base to the tip, creating a lifted and more open-eyed appearance. Lash lifts are an excellent option for those seeking a low-maintenance alternative to eyelash extensions or daily curling.

How Does a Lash Lift Work?

During a lash lift appointment at The Brow & Skin Studio, a skilled technician will first cleanse your eyelashes and apply a special adhesive to a silicone rod or shield. Your lashes are then carefully lifted and curled over the rod, giving them a beautiful upward curve. A gentle, conditioning solution is applied to set the lashes in their new lifted position. At The Brow & Skin Studio, we typically do this in conjunction with a lash tint, which darkens your lashes so that there is no need to wear mascara. The entire process is painless and typically takes around 45 minutes to an hour.

How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?

So, how long does a lash lift last? The good news is that a lash lift can provide stunning results that last for weeks, typically ranging from 6 to 8 weeks. This timeframe can vary slightly depending on your individual lash growth cycle and how well you care for your lashes post-treatment.

How To Get the Most Out of Your Lash Lift

Avoid Getting Them Wet
For the first 24-48 hours after your lash lift, it’s crucial to keep your lashes dry. Water can disrupt the setting process, so skip the steamy showers and swimming pools during this time.

Be Gentle
Avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes, as this can weaken them and cause premature straightening.

Use Oil-Free Products
Oil-based eye makeup removers and mascara can break down the adhesive used in the lash lift, so opt for oil-free alternatives.

Skip the Lash Curler
There’s no need for an eyelash curler with a lash lift. Using one can put unnecessary strain on your lashes and pull them out.

Consider Lash Serums
Some lash serums can promote lash health and growth, potentially extending the life of your lash lift.
