Top Tips for Lash Lift Aftercare: Make Your Lash Filler Last

There’s a misconception that a lash lift treatment is done and dusted as soon as a client leaves your salon; however, we’re here to call it a bluff! Lash lift aftercare is indispensable for prolonging the enchantment of the lash lifts you provide, potentially extending their allure for up to eight weeks. A well-maintained lash lift not only secures your client's satisfaction but also cements their loyalty to your services, recognising your dedication to their beauty needs and becoming a return client!

The best lash lift products

Lash lifts, known for their minimal upkeep, still require a strategic approach to aftercare to preserve their charm. This guide covers everything you need to know about aftercare advice to give to your clients, enhancing both the outcome of your services and the trust your clients place in your expertise. So, let’s get to it!

Comprehensive Lash Lift Aftercare Instructions

Moisture and Humidity Management: The initial 24-48 hours post-lash lifts are pivotal, acting as the foundation period for the treatment's longevity. It’s important to advise clients against exposing their lashes to water or steam during this window. Activities such as visiting saunas, and steam rooms or engaging in hot yoga can adversely affect the lift's integrity, potentially causing it to drop prematurely.

Heat Exposure Precautions: The lash lift's vulnerability to heat within the first two days post-treatment is another thing to consider. Recommending that clients avoid sunbeds, direct exposure to heat from a hairdryer, and environments with high heat levels is crucial in preserving the lift's quality. It’s in their best interest, too!

Lash lift aftercare tips

Product Selection and Application: The aftermath of a Lash Filler treatment requires a mindful selection of skincare and makeup products. Clients should try to avoid harsh chemicals, particularly products containing Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or exfoliants, which can compromise the lash lift. A gentle, non-invasive approach to skincare around the eyes is recommended, such as using our specially formulated Gentle Lash Shampoo and avoiding aggressive rubbing or pulling at the lashes.

Make-Up and Cosmetic Caution: Clients should also avoid makeup in the first 24-48 hours, especially oil-based products and waterproof mascara, which makes for vigorous removal techniques, potentially damaging the lashes.

No Picking or Pulling!: The temptation to rub or touch the eyes post-treatment is a common challenge many clients face. It is vital to stress the importance of gentle handling to avoid ruining the lash lift's structure. Excessive rubbing or pulling on the lashes can lead to premature weakening or straightening, which is not what they want after spending hard-earned money!

Aftercare Product Recommendations: Elevating your service with tailored aftercare product suggestions can enhance the client's experience and lash lift results as well as boost your income! Products such as peptide-based lash serums, like our Adiutrix Lash and Brow Serum, promote healthy lash growth, while specialised conditioners like the InLei® Fashion Lash Conditioner offer essential nourishment and protection against environmental factors.

Another great Lash Filler aftercare product is the Frida Mascara, which is a lash lift-safe mascara. This is perfect for clients who still want to wear mascara on top of their lash lift without compromising the results. This product also includes the Keratix™ system, which regenerates the hair, meaning it’s doing good whilst looking good! These recommendations not only aid in maintaining the lash lift but also provide an opportunity for you to expand your retail offerings, further benefiting business growth.

Daily Lash Grooming: Recommending the daily use of a clean, dry lash wand for gentle brushing can help maintain the lift's shape and prevent tangling or unevenness. Keeping the lashes separated can help to avoid snagging, which can sometimes result in long-term lash damage.
