Lash Lift Treatment – £45.00
A Lash Lift is a revolutionary eyelash treatment which is designed to lift your natural lash at the root, creating the effect of longer, lifted lashes. With immediate results lasting between 6 and 8 weeks, it is the perfect treatment for people with a low maintenance beauty regime, busy lifestyle, allergies and hay fever, or just those who want to make the most of their natural eyelashes!
Pre Lash Lift
Prior to treatment you are required to receive a patch test. A patch test must be carried out at least 24-48 hours prior to treatment date.
The result from the test will be either positive or negative.
A positive result will be recognised by irritation, swelling or inflammation of the skin. If this occurs, please inform your technician and you must not proceed with the treatment.
A negative result produces no skin reaction and you can proceed with the treatment.
Please ensure you arrive to your appointment makeup free and if you wear contact lenses they have been removed (remember to bring your glasses).
Lashes cannot get wet for at least 24-48hrs post treatment, nor can makeup be worn. So ensure you don’t have any events immediately following your treatment.
We also advise to turn your mobile phone off during the treatment and that if you have driven to the salon you have sufficient parking paid for, it is important you relax during the treatment as you will not be able to open your eyes, and we advise to keep conversation to a minimum to prevent product moving.
Post Lash Lift
This aftercare advice is given to ensure you fully understands what should and should not be done 24-28 hours post treatment for longevity of the lash lift treatment results
- Do not apply make-up or receive any other eye treatments for 24-48 hours after your treatment.

- Avoid putting contact lenses back in for 24-48 hours
- Avoid swimming/sauna for 24-48 hours
- Keep lashes dry for 24-48 hours
- Use a lash conditioner daily
- Comb the lashes upwards using the mascara wand
- Sleep on your back for up to 2 days after treatment to prevent the lashes being squashed by the pillow.
- If any stinging or swelling occurs, keep applying a cold dampened cotton pad, cold compress or cooling spray to soothe, if it persists seek medical advice and let your technician know so they can put it on your record card.
How it works
The structure of a single hair is made up of three parts: the hair cuticle, the cortex and the medulla. When the lifting solution is applied during the Lash Lift treatment, the hydrogen comes into contact with the air and oxidises. This creates a chemical process which breaks down the disulphide bonds in each hair, allowing them to move into a new shape. The next step is applying the neutralising solution, which reforms the disulphide bonds into their new shape.
This new shape of the eyelashes takes up to 48 hours for the disulphide bonds to lock into place and cure, which is why it is important to follow the correct aftercare for 48 hours post-treatment. If the lashes get hot or wet, they can fall back into their original state and the lift will drop or become over processed with excess heat.
Each step of the Lash Lift contains nourishing and hydrating ingredients such as:
- Cocoa Butter – Helps to moisturise and give your lashes a silky shine.
- Biotin – Known to strengthen the keratin bonds within the hair follicles, strengthening the lashes and enhances hair elasticity which enhances the lash lift.
- Hydrolysed Silk – A protein derivative that is highly hygroscopic with an enhanced moisture binding ability.
- Vitamin B3 – Stimulates hair growth and has been included in the formula to aid lash growth and provide fuller lashes.
If any of these contraindications are present the Lash Lift Treatment cannot be performed. If the contraindication will clear within a few days or weeks, the treatment can be rescheduled.

It’s best to refrain from treatment during chemotherapy, and several months after the your last treatment, as the lashes are still susceptible to the effects of the drugs. Ideally, you’ll want to wait until the natural lashes are less fragile. A letter from your Oncologist stating the are happy for you to receive treatment should be obtained.
