Which Lash Enhancement is Right for You?

Eyelashes can make a huge difference in the way you look. Both eyelash perms and extensions have lasting effects of up to a few months if taken care of properly. If you are having trouble trying to decide what is best for you, I will go over the procedure, maintenance, and cost.

Eyelash Lift

An eyelash perm is a semi-permanent treatment to curl your natural lashes upward. Dyes can be added too. This will give the illusion that you have larger eyelashes and will create a more doe-eyed look. An eyelash perm can last for 1 to 3 months with the proper care.

How is it done? An eyelash roll is placed on the eyelid and the lashes are fixed to the roll. A gel is dabbed onto the eyelashes. The poll is removed, and your eyelashes will remain that way for 6-8 weeks. A dye can be added if your lashes are light in color.

There is very low maintenance with an eyelash lift. Unlike lash extensions, rubbing your eyelashes will not cause them to fall off.

This is for someone who is looking for maintenance and a more natural look to wear on a daily basis. Here at JYS, I offer the YUMI lash treatment for $149.

Eyelash Extensions

            A pad is placed under the eye and you are asked to close your eyes. I go through your lashes applying extensions to every, or every other, lash with a medical-grade adhesive. Extensions vary in length, thickness, and curl.

            With lash extensions, you need to try not to rub your eyes. Touch-ups are required every 2-3 weeks.

 If you have short or sparse lashes, eyelash extensions are a good investment. I offer classic, volume, and hybrid lashes. Classic lashes are the most natural extensions, volume lashes are dramatic, and hybrid lashes give you the best of both worlds.

A new set of lashes is $230. A 60-minute lash fill is $69 for classic, $86 for hybrid, and $98 for volume/mink.

Hopefully, this has helped you determine what type of lash enhancement is right for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Lash Cleansers

Lash extensions are synthetic fibers that are attached to the natural lashes using medical-grade adhesive. They come in different sizes and curl width options. Lash extensions are great to make your eyes appear wider and more lifted. These are customizable too unlike lash strips. As your natural lashes shed, usually about six weeks for each eyelash, your extensions will come off as well. To keep your lashes healthy and in place, it is important to clean the lashes.

  1. Avoid wearing any eye makeup as best as you can. You can still wear eyeliner but be careful how you remove it. Make sure to take off all your makeup at the end of the day because letting makeup build up around your extensions can cause them to come off early. Avoid glycerin and oil-based makeup products. This can cause the adhesive to break down prematurely and eyelashes to fall out. Mineral-based, or eyelash extension safe makeup is the best bet when it comes to cleansers. Avoid using non-eyelash approved eyeliners or mascaras because they can add too much weight to the hair follicle and cause them to fall out.
  2. Use an oil-free makeup remover. The true first step in effective cleansing is to use formulas that are specifically made for lash extensions. Other products may contain ingredients that can weaken the bond of your lash extensions and cause them to shed prematurely. If you are making an investment in extensions, you don’t want to see them go to waste. To remove lash mascara, use an oil-free remover, use a few pumps of the remover on a spoolie brush or disposable mascara wand and brush through several; times to help break down the mascara and remove any debris.
  3. Do not use cotton pads or swabs. The cotton can snag and rip out the lashes. So, after brushing through with the makeup remover, dab with a tissue to remove the product and repeat this step until all the mascara is gone.

We carry three different lash cleansers at Joanna Young Skin. The Global Beauty Gentle Cleanse, the Bella Lash Lash Cleanser with Makeup Remover, and the cleanLash by Novalash which is a 3 in 1 makeup remover, cleanser, and conditioner. I recommend using one of these three products as well as a silk pillow to keep the lashes from snagging while you sleep. Conditioning serums are great if you are caught in between appointments which will keep your natural lashes in good shape.

What is Yumi Lash?

Yumi lash is a groundbreaking keratin lash treatment that is designed to boost and lift the natural lash without the need for fake eyelashes. YumiLash Lift is the ideal way to enhance your natural lash in a non-invasive way. False, over the top, lashes are on the decline as there is a demand for a more natural look. This lash enhancement lifts and curls your lashes to perfection making your eyes appear brighter and glamorous. These are not fake lashes. The keratin treatment will lift your natural lashes. You can add a black pigment that will make your natural lashes appear thicker and darker. This treatment will last 2-3 months, which is the natural life cycle of an eyelash. (you can tint every 3-4 weeks)

CoenzymeQ10 gel pads are applied to the under-eye area, helping with anti-aging. No false lashes nor adhesives are used. This treatment tints each lash. This is not a perm for your lashes. This treatment will give your natural lash a remarkable amount of length, thickness, and lift. This process only takes an hour and 15 minutes and you will be left with the most luxurious long lashes.

During this treatment, various serums and tints are coated on. A pair of sticky silicone rods are applied to the top of the closed eyelid. Methodically, each lash is separated with a tool bending them upwards and curling them around the rod to hold the shape. Once each lash is attached a lifting solution is applied. After that sets, a black tint is applied and then a top coat of keratin-based conditioner is applied on top. It is wiped off and you are left with perfectly curled, glossy, dark lashes.

The treatment is $149 and you can add a lash tint for an additional charge.

Which lash type is right for you?

We offer different types of lashes here at Joanna Young Skin; today I’ll help you determine which lash type is right for you; classic, hybrid, or volume lashes.

 

Classic lashes are applied to one natural lash and have a more uniform look about them. These lashes will enhance your look but will still appear natural.

Volume lashes are multiple extensions are made into a fan and applied to one natural lash. Volume lashes are very thin, and light so multiple lashes can be put onto one singular natural lash and create a glamorous, fluffy effect.

Hybrid lashes are a mix of classic and volume lashes. These lashes are sometimes called the Kim K lashes and give you the best of both worlds.

 

How should you determine which style is best for you?

Classic lashes are good for those who have a good number of natural lashes, have few gaps in the lash line, and are trying to achieve a more natural look.

Volume lashes are good for those who are looking for a fuller, darker, bolder look. All sets are custom to your liking and eye shape. I work attentively to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for.

Hybrid lashes are good for those who have fine natural lashes, slight gaps in the lash line, and wanting a fuller look that still appears natural.

 

Some things to know before your lash appointment:
