What Is The Difference Between Lash Extensions and Lash Lifts?

What Is The Difference Between LAsh Extensions and Lash Lift

When it comes to our eyelashes, we all know how much a difference they can make to our eye shape and overall appearance. Even just simple curling of your lashes with a lash curler and wearing mascara (one of our favorites is the Define-A-Lash lengthening washable mascara by Maybelline New York!) can open them right up and make you look instantly more awake and fresher faced. So, when your usual makeup routine just isn’t doing it for you or you find your eyes still look a little more closed or dull than you’d like, you may want to consider a more dramatic change and opt for a lash lengthening or curling procedure. Whether you go for a lash lift or lash extensions, one thing’s for certain, you’ll be receiving compliments left, right and center!

What Is A Lash Lift?

A lash lift is a semi-permanent beauty treatment that uses chemicals to curl and perm your lashes. Rather than anything artificial being added to them, this technique gets results using only your natural lashes. No false lengths or strips will be added, you’ll simply be left with an effect similar to just having curled your lashes with a curler, yet decidedly more dramatic!

Trying a lash lift at home is definitely achievable yet the results may not always last quite as long or be as accurate as those carried out by our beauty technicians here at The Anushka Spa & Salon in West Palm Beach Florida! If you do decide to try this at home for yourself, however, we would recommend the Diablo Lash Lift – Eyelash Perm Kit by Diablo for the best results!

How Long Does A Lash Lift Last?

Lash lifts treatments at a professional salon such as our here in Rosemary Square, can be booked and fulfilled within 24 hours and are expected to last around 8-10 weeks. This makes it a practical option for many of us as it’s not only quick and lasts for a long time, it’s considerably more cost-effective than lash exten-sions.

Is There Any Pain Involved With A Lash Lift?

No, there is no pain involved with this treatment. Additionally, a silicone shield will be applied to protect the eyes, lash line and lids before applying the perming solution. We do however recommend you avoid rub-bing your eyes following the treatment to avoid any irritation directly afterward.

How Much Does A Lash Lift Cost?

Here at our beautiful salon in West Palm Beach Florida, a lash lift treatment costs $83.

What Are Lash Extensions?

Unlike a lash lift, a lash extensions treatment uses individual artificial lashes to improve the length and vol-ume of your lashes. Though many do prefer the natural look and feel of a lash lift instead of adhesive ex-tensions, the sheer amount of volume you’ll experience after your false lashes have been applied is a huge benefit for many of us! No need for mascara either as your new lashes will have length and volume! If you really can’t decide which treatment is best for you, head to sugarlashpro.com and check out their exten-sive range of at-home lash perming and extension kits you can try yourself before you book your next salon appointment!

How Long Do Lash Extensions Last?

Lash extensions though considerably more dramatic than a lift, last between 6-8 weeks instead of 8-10. Though the amount of time is not quite as long, the very noticeable difference is what makes so many adore this particular beauty treatment. It’s especially great is you have an event coming up for which you want to look your best for photographs!

Is There Any Pain Involved With Lash Extensions?

No, this is a painless treatment though, again as with a lash lift, avoid rubbing your eyes directly afterward and between treatments to avoid tangling or irritation.

How Much Do Lash Extensions Cost?
