How Long Do You Have To Wait Before Getting Your Next Lash Lift?
After your first lash lift, we’re sure you’re stunned by the results. We know you can’t wait to get another, which is why we’re here with some pointers as to how long you should wait until your next one. You can keep results looking fresh without damaging your lashes (and actually help them grow stronger too!).
What Is A Lash Lift and Tint?
Lash lift treatments help clients achieve longer, thicker-looking lashes that require minimal maintenance. They give lashes a perfectly curled and lengthened look for up to 6 weeks, meaning you wake up looking even more fabulous than you already are. Lash tinting is often added to lash lift treatments, adding more definition and depth to each lash. The combined results make it look like you’ve brushed on mascara and used a curler without using a stitch of makeup.
How Often Can You Get a Lash Lift and Tint?
Lashes follow a growth cycle, replenishing every 60 to 90 days. Once new growth starts to come in, lifted lashes will start to lose their extra oomph, meaning it’s time for another lift. On average, most clients are safe to schedule a keratin lash lift with The Brow Fixx every 6 to 8 weeks – able to keep their lashes on fleek all year round.
While we’re not throwing other treatments under the bus, ours has some definite benefits that others just can’t match. For starters, our keratin lash lift formula is one of the best in the business, filled with lash-loving ingredients like silk peptides and botanicals. Continued treatments will not only ensure lashes look flawless but also keep them strong. Additionally, our lash lifting formula is medical grade, only purchasable by certified lash artists. That means your eyes and lashes are safe with us – each and every treatment.
Lash Lift Risks: Can You Overdo It?
Keeping lashes long and lifted all year round is definitely a goal but, is it associated with any risks? Is there a such thing as overdoing it when it comes to lash lifting and tinting treatments? The answer is yes, though it does depend on the type of solution used by your lash artist.
Keratin Lash Lift Solution Risks
Not all brow artists use the same products. That’s why it’s important to choose your artist wisely, knowing that they are looking out for you and your lashes. Here at the Brow Fixx, we love ingredients that are good for clients. We strive to only go for those that we would use ourselves, ensuring our products meet our standards of both quality and safety.
Having that said, we use only the most high-quality keratin lash lifting treatment products made with approved ingredients. As far as risks, some can have more sensitivities than others, though the most common side effect is redness post-treatment. This often goes away quickly after we’re done getting lashes in shape.
Risks From Lash Lifts Too Often
Knowing that your lash growth cycle completes from 60 to 90 days, it’s not recommended to get lash lifts so close together. One of the main risks that can come from lash lift treatments that are too close together is damage to lashes. The exposure to lifting formulas used to add length and curl can make lashes look frizzy, resulting in less than desired results. Additionally, you may lose lashes, overexposing them and interfering with their natural growth cycle.
To understand how often you can safely get a lash lift, we recommend consulting with one of our lash pros. They can check in with you post-treatment and see how long lashes hold lift. From there, they can recommend a schedule that maintains the lifted look you love without putting your lashes at risk.
Keratin Lash Lift Tips: Maintain Your Swag
While expected to last 6-8 weeks, the longevity of your lashes depends on several factors – including aftercare. If you’re in love with your keratin lash lift results (we know you are!), here are a few pointers on how you can extend your results.
Avoid Water for 24 Hours (At Least)
Hopping in a steaming shower after a long day can be relaxing but save it for another day. Post lash lift, avoid water and steam at all costs, allowing the lift to set in.
Skip The Curler
One of the greatest things about a lash lift is that you don’t have to use a lash curler every day – so why use one anyway? It can weaken your lift and result in the loss of added lash length and curl you get from a keratin lash lift.
Keep Lashes Clean
Brushing lashes out not only helps extend results but also keeps them clean and clump-free. Get in the habit of brushing lashes before and after cleansing, opting for oil-free cleansers around the eyes.
Say “No” To Waterproof Mascara
With a lash lift and tint, you might not need mascara on the daily. However, if you’re going for an extra glam, dramatic look, you can load up, as long as it’s not waterproof. Waterproof is heavier, adding a thicker coat to lashes. On top of that, you have to use oil-based products to safely remove it from lashes. To keep lash lift results longer, it’s best to keep mascara use to a minimum.
Lash Lift and Tint for Low Maintenance Lashes
Lash lifts are one of the most popular treatments out there, and it’s easy to understand why. With little maintenance, lash lifts and tints offer longer, stronger, bolder, curvier lashes that last up to 6 weeks. You can work out, go out, and wake up with perfect lashes, all without using an eyelash curler. When considering how often to get a lash lift, consult with your lash artist. You can maintain results safely by keeping the natural lash growth cycle in mind and working with a pro lash artist that can help you extend results. Perfect lashes are possible year-round thanks to our quality keratin lash lift and tint treatments – schedule yours today!
