A3. LAVILASH uses perming cream not liquid, therefore, it won’t touch your skin or go into your eyes, There are lots of clients who fall asleep. It’s a very relaxing procedure.
A4. Unlike many salons offering Eyelash Perms in U.S., LAVILASH uses the mildest and yet most efficient perming cream specially developed for eyelashes. Although, it is still chemical, we cannot say there is no damage at all. However, using eyelash curler every day damages your eyelashes fur more since eyelash curler pulls out and even cuts your eyelashes. Complimentary collagen treatment is included in LAVILASH eyelash perm and it adds gloss and moisture to your eyelashes.
A5. No. Perm itself does not lead to loss of eyelashes. However, it is perfectly normal to lose one or two eyelashes daily. It happens to all of us! New eyelashes will grow in place of old ones. Eyelash life cycle is between 60-120 days. Constant and compulsive eyelash curler usage may cause eyelashes fall off before regular life cycle.
A6. Not a problem at all. LAVILASH carries 42 kinds of rods in order to meet many different requirements. The technician choose the best rod depending on the eyelash length, texture, thickness of eyelids, requested curls. However, if your eyelashes are cut or pulled out severely beause of eyelash extensions or eyelash curler, we may recommend you to wait a while until eyelashes grow back. For bottom eyelashes, if they are too short or too fine, we may not be able to perform perm.
A7. 45 minutes to an hour. It could take a little over than that for those who is first time or whose eyelashes are difficult to be curled. When you get both top and bottom eyelashes permed at the same time, it takes an hour and half.
A8. It varies for each individual but is usually lasts4-6 weeks. New eyelashes which are usually straight will grow out in 3-4 weeks. Gradually, straight lashes will be majority and you start feeling your lashes are not curled any more. I recommend having a perm every 5-6 weeks to maintain beautiful appearance. Perms for people whose eyelashes are fine and whose eyelids are puffy may not last as long as the others.
A9. Eyelash extension is the technique which glues artificial eyelashes onto your eyelashes. It adds length and number of eyelashes. On the other hand, Eyelash Perm is just perm on your eyelashes. Therefore, it does not increase the number of eyelashes but your eyelashes look longer yet natural .Extensions look beautiful but they are more likely unnatural. Besides, your eyelashes are damaged severely by extensions. Also, eyelash perm maintenance is only salon visit every 5-6 weeks. On the other hand, the upkeep of eyelash extensions is not only salon visit every 2 weeks but also you have to be very careful when washing face, you cannot use mascara or some eye make-ups. There are so many restrictions for daily activities such as swimming and so on for eyelash extensions. It is simply not for active lifestyles.
A10. No. Not doing anything that damages eyelashes is LAVILASH's philosophy. Eyelash extension is very attractive for beauty conscious people. However, it damages your eyelashes badly, besides, you have to be very careful when you wash face or when you apply eye make-up. LAVILASH believes it is better to make your eyelashes stronger and healthier.
