Can lash lifts be damaging?

No, eyelash lifts shouldn't harm your eyelashes. Even if you end up with an eyelash lift that goes a little wrong, the effects of the procedure are only semi-permanent. Your eyelashes fall out naturally and grow back every 4 to 6 weeks, so you don't have to worry about damaging them in the long term. Eyelash lifts aren't supposed to ruin eyelashes.

However, if done poorly, it can damage the eyelashes. If done correctly, you should leave with beautiful, fluttering eyelashes. I have too much curl on my eyelashes and, therefore, they rub my eyelid and I have the constant feeling that something touches my eyelashes and a double blow, so does my eyelid. Eyelash tints and eyelash lifts are separate services, but some experts suggest doing them at the same time.

Normally there should be no redness or burning in the eyes after the eyelash lift; you should ask your eyelash stylist what product they used, as it could be too aggressive to the skin and eyes. The Asian woman gave me some cream for my third-degree burns and a comb for eyelashes, I went to the bathroom to try to comb them and the rest of my curly and permanent eyelashes crumbled like ashes. Be sure to start with a serum 24 to 48 hours after your eyelash lift to let it harden first; otherwise, you could compromise your lash-tightening effect. The only reason eyelashes would fall out after an eyelash lift is if the technician over-processes them.

A silicone protector is placed on the eyelid above the lash line, and the eyelashes are brushed upwards and fixed on it. Eyelash lifts are becoming a go-to treatment for beauty addicts because they claim to give eyelashes an enviable volume, without the need for an eyelash curler. To give the lashes a curling effect, the technician works from the base of the lashes to the tip to see their full length. Here you can make a difference in keeping your lashes healthy and making sure that an eyelash lift doesn't ruin them.

An accredited technician will always discover your history of eyelash lifts or any eyelash treatment, your eye sensitivity, and any skin conditions you may have had in the past.
