Eyelash lifting, or lash perming, is a professional service provided by estheticians. A lash lift service provides semi-permanent curl to the eyelashes creating an opening and elevated appearance to the eye. Lash lifting eliminates the need for lash curlers that can damage or break eyelashes and can be used in conjunction with lash tinting, mascaras, and other eye makeup.
Because of use that is in close proximity to the eyes, lash lifting services should be avoided on people with glaucoma, eye infections, and those with allergies to permanent wave solutions and/or allergies or acute sensitivity to eye makeup and products used around the eyes. People with allergies to adhesives or glues should also avoid having the treatment.
