What is it that we do in the Yumi Lashes -Lash lift treatment?
The lash lift differs from the traditional lash permanent so that, it bends the lashes from the roots upwards to expand your eyes. We use silicone pillows to assist with the lash lift is such way that your lashes will be set on them after which we glue them with a water-soluble milk glue. The milk glue will then be removed in the end of the treatment by rinsing with water. The glue keeps the lashes in place whilst the bending product and conditioner affect. The silicone pillows (bending molds) come in different sizes due to lashes been different length. Have a conversation with your Yumi Lashes -professional on how curvy lashes you wish to have and also what would be the best choice for the quality of your lashes. At the Yumi Lashes treatment, your lashes will be colored with a black or even more intensive blue-black shaded permanent tint. The permanent tinting will be done straight on top of the lash mold, which then gives the costumer even more of a pleasant experience.
The lash lift can be done on the lashes in maximum, every 8 weeks. The lash lift will last on the lashes 8-12 weeks, depending on the growth cycle of your lashes. Many costumers take the Yumi Lashes -lash lift regularly.
Home care instructions on how to take care of Lash Lift
We do not recommend that you wash your lashes for the first 24 hours, for it weakens the affect of the lash lift. Please note that providing that you eat supplements that affect the growth of your lashes, the lash lift may last a shorter time because when the lashes grow the result may gradually start to vanish from the lashes. The lash lift does not “flatten out” in 8 weeks, but it does grow out, once your lashes grow and renew. The life cycle of natural lashes is 8-12 weeks.
You can use Mascara without any worries and you can also use makeup remover even if you have the lash lift. Providing that you feel that the lash lift has been done too steeply, we are able to flatten it out for the next 7 days from the original day of taking the treatment. In which case, you need to contact the store as soon as possible. All of our Yumi Lashes -professionals are trained cosmeticians or hairdressers.
