YUMI LASH LIFT & TINT
+HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
About an hour and a half, but it depends on the density and thickness of your lashes. We suggest arranging for 2 hours to take into consideration parking and to allow for walking to/from your vehicle and getting settled in.
+WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREP FOR MY TREATMENT?
Simply arrive eye-makeup and lash-extension free! Think squeaky clean lashes...
If you wear 'tube forming' or waterproof mascara, or wore false lashes the day before, pay extra attention to remove all product and glue! Face and brow makeup is totally fine!
Arriving with eye makeup on will eat into your treatment time and will likely affect lift results which will not be corrected without an additional full charge appointment, as well as cause sensitivities due to the micro-abrasions caused from rubbing your eye area excessively before the appointment.
+WHAT IF I WEAR CONTACT LENSES?
If you wear contact lenses, please bring solution and your contact storing case to store them during the treatment. Contacts can be put back in immediately after the treatment is finished.
+HOW LONG DO I NEED TO WAIT FOLLOWING THE TREATMENT TO RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES THAT MAY AFFECT THE LIFT?
For 24 hours following the treatment we ask that you avoid wearing any eye makeup, and avoid water from touching your lashes (swimming, saunas, steam rooms and rigorous workouts; washing your face in a direct stream of water) while your lashes continue to lift and set. After that you can do anything you like!
+I AM GETTING MY EYEBROWS MICROBLADED, CAN I COME THE SAME DAY FOR THE KERATIN LASH LIFT?
No, you cannot. The eye area must be cleansed with products which would affect your fresh brows. Even the most skilled technician still needs to work around the brow area, which can affect the pigment in your eyebrows. As a general rule we encourage you to have them done once your brows are healed. Also, as you may tear up while having brows microbladed, you shouldn't have your lashes lifted within the 24 hours prior to having your brows done.
+WHAT ABOUT A FACIAL OR MASSAGE APPOINTMENT?
No. You cannot have a facial after as it may affect your newly lifted lashes. And laying face down in a massage bed could affect the lift as well. A facial immediately before isn't recommended either as products applied to the eye area could affect the lift, or make your skin more sensitive.
+IS THERE ANY MAINTENANCE, FILLS OR REMOVAL INVOLVED AFTER THE TREATMENT?
None. Zero. Nada. Just re-book in 8-12 weeks to recreate the original results!
+IS THERE ANY DAMAGE TO MY NATURAL LASHES? HOW WILL THEY GROW OUT?
No. The treatment effects last as long as your natural eyelash cycle.
As your eyelashes naturally shed over the course of their life cycle, they will grow back in their natural position and tone.
The effect is essentially 'diffused' over time as your lashes do not remain looking perfectly lifted and then shed all at once. Think about it - if they did that you would have bald eyes every few months! Remember, this treatment improves the look of your natural lashes, but cannot always correct folicle direction and imperfections in symmetry from eye-to-eye.
+IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
No. It is extremely gentle and relaxing. Many clients even drift off to sleep in the quiet warm studio.
+WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS? IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
Your lashes will be lifted onto a specially shaped lifting pad, tailored to your eye shape and size, prior to application to avoid products touching your skin and getting in the eye. Since the treatment products never touch the skin during the process any possible irritation is minimized. Mild redness around the eye may occur due to the product removal process (wiping eyes with gentle, lint-free wipes), but should disappear within a few minutes after the treatment.
Each treatment is individually packaged to ensure minimal use of preservatives and maximum hygienic control.
As with any cosmetic, in absolute rare cases, allergic reactions can develop. Let us know if you are prone to allergic reactions to makeup and skincare products around your eyes or skin beforehand.
+CAN I STILL USE LATISSE OR OTHER LASH GROWTH SERUMS AFTER?
Yes! You can resume using all your normal products and cosmetics after the 24 hours is up.
As with any appearance altering procedure that is semi-permanent, we recommend having a trial-run at least once before your wedding to make sure you love the results! Also, timing is important, as you will prefer to allow for enough time to have a second lift right before you wedding day.
