A Lash Lift takes less time to achieve than eyelash extensions because your top and bottom lashes are separated, and a silicone shield is used to curl your lashes with a lifting solution for only about 10-15 minutes.
Afterward, a setting solution and a lash conditioner help to really set your lashes and keep them in mint condition. Keratin solution to create the desired volume and can last 6 to 8 weeks going off the lash growth cycle.
How Does it Work?

Are There any Risks?
