As definitions of beauty evolve, one theme remains popular in aesthetic treatments: naturally enhancing your features so you can feel good wearing less makeup day-to-day. Two of the best treatments for a naturally beautiful look without makeup are lash lifts and brow lamination!
Lash lifts are a way to enhance your natural eyelashes with a semi-permanent lift and curl. Instead of getting out your lash curler every day (only to have them fall flat later) we can lift your lashes to create a fuller, more voluminous look!
A more novel treatment quickly gaining popularity is brow lamination. Brow gel products (kind of like mascara for the brows) have been a popular way to tame those brow hairs into place for a fuller effect. With brow lamination, we set your brows into place in an ultra-flattering manner, so you will wake up with naturally full brows. They will frame and lift your face—no product needed!
We’re excited to now offer lash lifts and brow lamination near you at Envision Eye & Aesthetics in Rochester, New York! We’re a caring and talented team specializing in aesthetic treatments since 2015. We treat each client as we would a loved one to ensure thorough, individualized care.
The Benefits of a Lash Lift in Rochester
A lash lift in Rochester has many benefits for clients looking for something to enhance their eyes without a ton of maintenance.
Lash lifts are low maintenance
Lash extensions, mascara, and false eyelashes all require a certain amount of time, effort, and maintenance. Meanwhile, a lash lift will give you a similar result without the fuss! Lash extensions require regular upkeep and have a higher price point, while mascara, false eyelashes, and eyelash curlers can be a hassle to use each day.
With a lash lift, you will wake up with voluminous lashes that don’t require irritating products, maintenance, or time. We can also tint your lashes to darken them, this is especially noticeable on those with a lighter hair color.
You won’t have to worry about taking off mascara or false eyelashes.
With mascara and falsies, you also have to take the time to gently remove them each night. You need to be careful when removing them, as mascara and false eyelash removal can weaken and even take some of your natural lashes with them! You won’t have to worry about a time-consuming eyelash regimen every night with a lash lift
Wake up looking great!
We could all use a little extra help in the morning to make our day easier. With a lash lift, you can completely skip a step in your routine and still look put together for whatever the day throws at you. Even with no face makeup, your perfect lashes give you that naturally beautiful and awake look.
Don’t want to give up the mascara? You don’t have to! If you get a lash lift, you can still choose to use mascara for an even fuller effect!
How Lash Lifts Work
A lash lift works essentially like a perm, using an eye-safe solution to create a lifted and curled shape that lasts for weeks.
Most spas will test the solution on your skin for any sensitivities. The lash specialist uses a serum that makes the eyelashes malleable and easy to shape. Then, the specialist places a special mold over your eyes to keep them shut and to place and shape the lashes so they’re curled from the base to the tip.
The lash lift service takes about an hour and a half. During this time, you’ll be able to relax (maybe even fall asleep!) as we curl your lashes to perfection.
Eyelash Lift Aftercare Instructions
During the first 24 to 48 hours, make sure that you put nothing on your lashes that may damage the hold of the lash lift. This is to ensure the longevity of the treatment, so avoid mascara, creams, and getting them wet.
Pro tip: avoid sad movies. No tears, please!
After that, make sure you are gentle on your lashes. Do your best to avoid rubbing your eyes and don’t use an eyelash curler (you literally won’t need to!). You can use mascara if you want, although some specialists may tell you to avoid it if possible.
Lash Lift Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a lash lift last?
Depending on the aftercare and treatment of the lashes, eyelash lifts typically last 8 to 12 weeks.
Do lash lifts ruin your eyelashes?
Nope! Most people compare getting lash lifts to coloring your hair. It’s not bad for the hair in moderation, and it helps you look good and feel good.
How do you sleep after an eyelash lift?
The first 24 to 48 hours, it’s best to avoid sleeping on the sides of your face so you don’t flatten the curl of your eyelashes, so sleeping on your back is best. Once the curl sets into place, you can sleep however you’re most comfortable! Above all, it’s most important to be gentle to ensure the longevity of the lash lift.
Boost Your Brows With Brow Lamination
Laminated eyebrows are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the last year. The treatment is pretty self explanatory; your brows are semi-permanently “laminated” into place. The best part? Fuss-free brows for weeks!
Benefits of a Brow Lamination in Rochester
Fuller, natural brows that lift the face
Better than brow products that set your eyebrows in place temporarily, a brow lamination sets your eyebrows for weeks! As they are set into place, your brow specialist will also brush the hairs upward and out. This gives the eyebrows a naturally fuller effect by filling in any gaps. Similar to a lash lift, a brow lamination uses your natural hairs to create a more voluminous look.
A brow lamination creates a lifting effect. This is because we brush the brow hairs upward and out at an angle, then we set them into place. Just like applying any makeup, it makes a big difference to shape the brow hairs up and out to naturally draw the eye upward for a lifted look.
No makeup products necessary
After a brow lamination in Rochester, your eyebrows will be naturally full and shaped—no makeup necessary! It’s difficult and time-consuming to make natural hair strokes with a brow product, all while making sure that they look natural and even with each other. A brow lamination does this for you using your natural eyebrows!
Unlike permanent eyebrow tattooing or microblading, which are both great treatments, a brow lamination is low-commitment since there are no needles or tinting products used for laminated eyebrows. You can get a brow lamination without worrying about long-term results!
How Brow Lamination Works
Similar to lash lifts, brown lamination in Rochester is like a perm for your eyebrows using a safe solution for the face.
Your eyebrow specialist applies a solution to your eyebrows that helps lift and shape the hairs into place. Then, the specialist brushes your eyebrows upward and out, to fill in any gaps and create a fuller look. We then apply a neutralizer to secure the brows in their place. Finally, we apply an oil to give the eyebrows moisture and shine. The entire process takes about an hour and a half!
Eyebrow Lamination Aftercare
The aftercare is pretty basic and similar to a perm! Just be sure to not get your eyebrows wet in the shower or bath and avoid steam and excessive humidity for 48 hours. After that, you can do as you wish!
Brow Lamination Frequently Asked Questions
How long does an eyebrow lamination last?
Brow laminations last for approximately 8 to 12 weeks.
Can I put makeup on after brow lamination?
After the first 48 hours have passed, you can apply brow products to enhance your eyebrows further, though you may find it unnecessary! You can apply makeup (other than eyebrow products) right after your brow lamination.
Is brow lamination bad for your brows?
Nope! Similar to coloring or perming your hair, it’s important to not overdo it and wait a reasonable amount of time between treatments to ensure the health of your eyebrow hair. Schedule brow laminations at our Rochester office in moderation to keep your brows healthy.
