Is a lash lift safe?

Yes, a lash lift is generally considered a safe procedure when performed by a professional, like the experts at Pia Day Spa. We use high-quality products and tailor the treatment to suit your individual lash type, ensuring a safe and professional treatment. However, as with any beauty treatment involving chemicals, there are a few things to keep in mind.

According to experts, a lash lift is similar to a hair perm in terms of the process and chemicals used. The treatment involves applying a silicone mold or shield onto the eyelid with a nontoxic glue, followed by a perm solution to curl the lashes. This procedure typically lasts about 45 minutes and the results can last four to six weeks.

While lash lifts are safe overall, individuals with sensitive skin may experience skin sensitivity or allergic reactions, particularly to the adhesive used. This can cause burning, stinging, or redness around the eye area. Therefore, if you have known sensitivities, it's important to discuss this with your technician beforehand.

Moreover, the chemicals used in lash lifts, which may include thioglycolic acid or polyacrylamide, could potentially irritate your skin. Although the perm solution isn't directly applied to the skin, there's a slight risk of it dripping into the follicles or being applied improperly. Overprocessing can also lead to damaged eyelashes. However, an experienced professional will know the ideal amount of time to leave the chemicals on to avoid these issues.

For those who are pregnant, it's recommended to consult with your OB-GYN before undergoing a lash lift, as opinions on the safety of lash lifts during pregnancy vary among experts.

In summary, while lash lifts are generally safe, it's crucial to have them done by experienced professionals and to be aware of any personal skin sensitivities or allergies.
