Frequently asked questions
Lash Lift & Tint
What is a Lash Lift?
It's a lifting technique designed to give you longer-looking lashes without the need for lash extensions. It will look as if you used a really good eyelash curler, only this lift lasts for 6 to 8 weeks! To top off the treatment, I'll apply a black lash tint which really makes your lashes look more prominent. The procedure takes about 45 to 60 mins to complete. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!
How do I need to prep for the treatment?
PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT COMPLETELY FREE OF EYE MAKE UP! Also, you must stop usage of waterproof mascara at least 2 days prior to your Lift! If you wear contacts, they must be removed.
Is this like lash extension where they will look dramatically thicker?
Lash extensions and lash lifts are 2 totally different. I will not be adding any additional lashes to yours. I will simply be curling your natural lashes. That said, for most, it can make your lashes appear fuller because they are so uplifted.
What are the post treatment instructions/maintenance?
Can I still wear mascara?
Of course! You'll just achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your curled lashes.
Why can’t I wear waterproof mascara?
Harsh chemicals are used in waterproof formulas in order to make them, well.... waterproof. This chemical composition is extremely drying to your lashes. Not to mention all the effort and extra tugging and pulling on the lashes to remove the mascara. To be honest, most people are not great at thoroughly removing the mascara.
Why do I have to stop wearing waterproof mascara 2 days before?
Pretty much for all the reasons I just stated above. If you are a regular waterproof mascara wearer, then you are already walking to the appointment with dehydrated and weakened lashes, which will result in a poor Lift and possible further damage.
Will this damage my eyelashes?
No, if you follow all the advice on Pre prep and Post care. The lifting solutions are only applied to the new growth area of the lashes, down towards the base and up a bit. Never to the ends of the lashes.
Are some lashes resistant to the curl?
Is it painful?
No. At first, when I'm applying the shields to the eyelids, it may feel a bit strange. But, for the most part, it's very relaxing!
I have downward-pointing lashes, will this be a good treatment for me?
Heck yes! Anyone with these types of lashes will love the lash lift! Post treatment, your lashes will all be evenly dispersed and lifted.
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 6 to 8 weeks.
I have very very short lashes. Am I able to still do this procedure?
I have glaucoma, can I have this procedure?
Yes. If ever in doubt, always consult with your physician.
I've recently had blepharoplasty surgery, can I have this procedure?
You need to wait at least 1 year from your surgery. It has been my experience with clients who have had this surgery that there is an increased sensitivity in the eye area for quite a while. You need to give yourself that time to heal first. After that, you can consult with your physician to be sure.
I've recently had lasik surgery, can I have this procedure?
Yes, but you need to wait at least 6 months. As always, when in doubt, please consult with your physician.
Who is this procedure NOT good for?
Chronic dry eye, conjunctivitis, damaged lashes or lashes with gaps (this treatment may make the gaps more noticeable), active eye infections of any kind, trichotillomania (habitual pulling out of lashes), recent chemo treatments (you will need to wait at least a year from your last treatment. When in doubt, always consult with your physician.)

Ingredients for Blue Remineralizer:
How the procedure works?
The procedure is very simple. Hydrogen peroxide gel/peroxide free gel is applied to the teeth. The cool, blue LED light is used to dehydrate teeth, opening up microscopic tubules in the enamel. By opening up the tubules the gel is able to sink in and lift stains quickly and efficiently. In simpler terms, the combination of the light and gel will enhance the natural white in your teeth to diminish staining. A cold blue light is placed directly in front of the client’s exposed teeth and runs for 15 minutes per treatment (for a maximum of 45 minutes) 3 rounds each sitting. Sessions can be as long as 75 minutes. Since we DO NOT use trays, we are able to provide custom results for our clients and apply the whitening formula to each tooth individually, enabling us to achieve the best results with little to no sensitivity for our clients. I use a cheek retractor and paint each individual tooth to ensure even distribution of gel.
What is Light Therapy
Light therapy has been known to help many different conditions, but have you heard it’s raving reviews in skincare? The use of LED in skin therapy was first discovered by NASA (seriously), and was initially used post-surgery for quick healing of wounds and scars. LED (light-emitting diode) therapy is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that every skin type can benefit from. The underlying idea behind LED skin therapy is the use of different color LED lights to activate distinct reactions underneath your skin, and target specific areas. Blue light will also kill the bacteria that causes acne.
Here’s your Doe guide to what each color can do for your skin:
Red light is one the most used colors in LED therapy because it is known to improve circulation, fine lines, and wrinkles. It targets inflammation, and can help tackle acne and rosacea/eczema. Aging and sun damaged skin can also benefit from red light. Increased collagen production and reduce scars/stretch marks.
Blue is also a popular choice for LED therapy. This hue kills bacteria, even the bacteria that lives deep in your skin that causes acne. It also leaves the good bacteria behind, and helps tighten your skin. It is often paired with red light to combat acne and heal your skin.
What happens when you mix red and blue LED light? You get purple of course, and all of the effects of both colors combined. You might want to give purple a try if you’re looking to treat acne or deal with signs of premature aging.
