Eyelash enhancement procedures can do wonders for your most important facial feature. Boosting your own natural eyelashes with one of these easy treatments can rejuvenate and define your eyes with the added bonus of simplifying your morning routine. One of the main questions I am asked by patients though is “how do I chose the right eyelash enhancement procedure for me”? There can be several factors that go into that choice and it can be difficult for patients to decide. Lifestyle, natural eyelash length, eye shape, and aesthetic goals all play a role in each procedure. At the Centre for Plastic Surgery, our main enhancement procedures are: NovaLash Eyelash Extensions; and Lash Tint and/or Lift.
NovaLash Eyelash Extensions are artistically and individually placed at the root of your own natural eyelashes. The appointment takes 1-2 hours, and the extensions will last anywhere from 2-6 weeks. After the initial lash extensions are placed, most patients find that they need a 1 hour fill every 2-4 weeks. Eyelash extensions do require a certain amount of maintenance, and I cannot stress enough the importance of at home care with the proper products. By properly caring for eyelash extensions at home, patients protect their investment by promoting lash retention and reducing the risk of lash or eye complications. The ideal NovaLash Eyelash Extension patient desires the look of dramatic, full lashes by adding length, volume, or both to their natural eyelashes. They are comfortable with and consistent in following home care instructions, and have the time to commit to maintenance appointments.
A Lash Tint and Lift will add ease and definition by enhancing the look of your own natural eyelashes. During the lift, a curved pad (like a perm rod for your lashes) is placed on your eyelid. Your eyelashes are curved back onto the pad, and then a perm lotion is used to help them stay curled and lifted. They are then tinted to a rich deep black and conditioned. The appointment takes about an hour, and the results last up to six weeks. There are very few restrictions (no make up or water in the first 24 hours; no lash curler), and no major home care instructions. The ideal Lash Tint and Lift patient will be content with the length and volume of their own natural eyelashes, and appreciate the freedom of minimal maintenance.
Whatever choice is right for you, you can be assured that your eyelash enhancement treatment at the Centre for Plastic Surgery will be second to none!
