Lash treatments like LVL have become a go-to solution for achieving stunning lashes without extensions. However, the longevity and health of lifted lashes greatly depend on the care and attention they receive after the treatment.  

Let's delve into the crucial aspects of post-LVL lash care to ensure your clients’ lashes remain strong, healthy and beautiful.

Once you have completed a lash lift treatment, you must ensure your client is fully aware of the aftercare tips to follow at home. Not only will this help to maintain their lash lift, but it will also make sure they retain your beautiful results for as long as possible. 

Top client aftercare tips 

To achieve the very best treatment results, the following lash lift aftercare should be followed: 

  • Do not get them wet for 24 hours 
  • No touching or rubbing the eyes for 24 hours 
  • Avoid eyelash curlers and try not to lay on lashes whilst sleeping for 24 hours 
  • No mascara, eye creams, lash serums, false lashes or lash extensions for 24 hours 
  • Avoid steam, sunbeds, saunas and bright, direct sunlight for 24 hours 
  • Apply a lash conditioning serum twice a day, every day 
  • Always leave 6 – 8 weeks between lash lift treatments

What not to do after a lash lift 

Post-treatment care is pivotal in maintaining the results of a lash lift. Avoid getting lashes wet for the first 24 hours to allow the solution to set completely. This also includes avoiding steam and excessive heat, so no hot baths, saunas, steam rooms, sun beds or direct, bright sunlight. 

Additionally, steer clear of rubbing your eyes or applying any oil-based products near the eyes, as these can weaken the lift. 

Can you put mascara on a lash lift? 

While your lifted lashes provide a naturally enhanced look, applying mascara isn't prohibited. It's advisable to wait at least 24 hours before using mascara to ensure the lift has fully set.  

After the initial 24 hours, mascara can be worn daily. However, one of the benefits of lash lifts is that they add length, volume and lift to the natural lashes so some clients may not even need it.  

When using mascara, opt for a water-based, gentle formula and avoid waterproof variants, as they can be tougher to remove and may impact the longevity of your lift. The Nouveau Lashes Enhance Mascara has been specially formulated to work perfectly with treated lashes. It can be removed with nothing but warm water, so you can avoid the use of strong makeup removers and excessive rubbing. 

How long after a lash lift can I shower? 

After a lash lift, it's recommended to wait at least 24 hours before exposing your lashes to water, including showering or swimming. You should also avoid steam, so extra hot showers and baths are out of the question for 24 hours. This allows the lifted lashes to properly set, ensuring the longevity of the treatment.

How easy it is to maintain an LVL lash lift? 

Maintaining an LVL lash lift is relatively simple with consistent care. Regularly brushing lashes with a clean spoolie and following the aftercare instructions provided by the artist will go a long way in preserving the lift. 

Additionally, it’s important to keep the lashes moisturised. This will help to ensure that the curl lasts for as long as possible. This can be done by using a lash conditioning serum twice daily to help keep lashes strong and healthy, while maintaining the beautiful treatment results. 

How can I make LVL last longer? 

To extend the lifespan of an LVL lash lift, adopt simple lash care practices: 

  1. Avoid oil-based products: oil-based makeup removers or cleansers can weaken the lift, so opt for oil-free alternatives 
  2. Be gentle: treat lashes delicately; avoid rubbing or tugging, which could disrupt the lift 
  3. Regular conditioning: using lash artist approved lash serums or conditioners can help maintain lash health and strength

Nouveau Lashes have developed a range of lash care products that help to maintain lash health that are safe to use after professional lash lift treatments. Stock up on these salon retail essentials at trade price.

In conclusion, the longevity of lash lifts and maintaining lash health depend significantly on post-treatment care. By adhering to proper aftercare guidelines and avoiding activities that might compromise the lift, clients can enjoy stunning, lifted lashes for an extended period. 

Remember, consulting your clients with personalised advice tailored to their specific needs and lifestyle is always the best solution to ensure they have a homecare routine that works for them and they are likely to follow.
