Lash Lift FAQs


As an esthetician, one of the most common procedures I get asked about is the lash lift. Lash lifts have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to enhance natural lashes without the need for extensions. If you're considering a lash lift, you likely have some questions about the process, the results, and the benefits. In this blog post, I'll answer some of the most frequently searched questions about lash lifts from an esthetician's point of view.

  1. What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is a beauty treatment that involves curling and lifting your natural lashes using a chemical solution. The process is similar to a perm for your lashes, but instead of creating tight curls, it lifts and curls your lashes from the base, giving them a more dramatic look. The effects of a lash lift can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks.

2. Is a lash lift safe?

Yes, when done by a licensed and experienced esthetician, a lash lift is safe. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks involved. The most common side effect of a lash lift is temporary irritation or redness around the eyes. In rare cases, a person may experience an allergic reaction to the chemicals used in the process. That's why it's essential to have a patch test before the treatment to ensure that you're not allergic to any of the products used.

3. What is the process like, and how long does it take?

The lash lift process typically takes about an hour. During the treatment, your esthetician will start by cleaning your lashes thoroughly and then apply a silicone shield to your eyelid. Your lashes will then be brushed onto the shield, and a perming solution will be applied to your lashes. After that, a setting solution will be applied to lock in the curl, followed by a nourishing serum to condition your lashes.


4. Can I wear mascara after a lash lift?

Yes, you can wear mascara after a lash lift, but it's recommended that you wait at least 24 hours after the treatment to allow the solution to set fully. When you do wear mascara, it's best to use a water-based formula to avoid clumping and weighing down your lashes.


5. How do I care for my lashes after a lash lift?

After a lash lift, it's essential to avoid getting your lashes wet for at least 24 hours. You should also avoid steam and heat, such as hot showers and saunas, for the first 48 hours. Once you can get them wet, be gentle when washing your face and avoid rubbing your eyes. You can also apply a lash serum to help condition your lashes and keep them healthy.


6. Are there any benefits to getting a lash lift?

Yes, there are several benefits to getting a lash lift. One of the most significant benefits is that it enhances your natural lashes, giving them a more dramatic and voluminous look without the need for extensions. Lash lifts are also low-maintenance and can save you time getting ready in the morning. Additionally, they can make your eyes look more awake and bright, making you look more youthful and refreshed.


In conclusion, a lash lift can be an excellent option for anyone looking to enhance their natural lashes without the need for extensions. As with any cosmetic procedure, it's essential to do your research and find a licensed and experienced esthetician to perform the treatment. If you have any further questions about lash lifts, don't hesitate to reach out to your esthetician.
