Women have been longing after long, lusciously curled eyelashes for hundreds of years, and for good reason. One of the hallmarks of great beauty is sooty dark lashes with an enviable length, but since we’re all not born blessed with long-lashes, we tend to rely on mascara and other eye cosmetics to create an illusion of longer lashes. But is there a better, longer-lasting solution? At Beautique in Knoxville, TN, we believe that Elleebana is one of the best eyelash lifting treatments around.
What Is Elleebana?
There is a difference between lash extension and eyelash lifting treatments. The first is an artificial treatment that adds additional eyelashes and length, whereas eyelash lifting treatments refer to curling and lengthening the natural eyelash. Elleebana is a unique eyelash lifting and extending treatment that creates longer-looking lashes by lifting and curling the natural lashes into a higher position.
How Does Elleebana Work?
If this eyelash treatment doesn’t involve artificially extending the lashes, how does the treatment work? The key to this lash lifting and extending treatment is a combination of a chemical lifting lotion and silicone rods. The idea behind this treatment is to mimic the effects of an eyelash curler without clamping down on the eyelashes or creating a harsh, unnatural bend.
This treatment is performed by one of our aestheticians, who will apply the special lotion to your eyelashes to breakdown the natural bonds of the lashes. Then, silicone rollers will be used to lift the lashes from the base of the lash line in order to achieve the fullest curl, while the lotion will dry the lash into the new curl.
Why Should You Choose This Treatment?
Ultimately, most women choose this treatment because it creates natural-looking results and is overall much more simple than eyelash extensions. Women who are seeking a low-maintenance solution for longer lashes tend to opt for this treatment for several other reasons, such as the fact that the treatment is hygienic and there is very little downtime associated with the treatment.
Can You Combine This Treatment?
Yes, actually. At Beautique, we offer two additional methods for this treatment. The first is a hydrating keratin treatment for the lashes, which infuses the natural eyelash with additional proteins to make the lashes stronger and healthier. We also frequently combine this lash lifting treatment with Latisse, a treatment that helps eyelashes become thicker and longer over time. Patients may also opt to have the Elleebana eyelash tint treatment to darken the shade of the natural eyelash.
Combining these treatments will improve the length, thickness, and curl of your natural eyelashes, which means it may not be necessary to use certain cosmetics, such as mascara. We will help you decide if a solo treatment or a combination treatment is more suitable for your appearance goals.
How Long Do Results Last?
On average, most patients can expect to enjoy results for at least six to eight weeks at a time. Sometimes, patients still see results after 12 weeks. The length of time you can expect your results to last will depend on the condition of your natural eyelashes, the type of eyelash lifting and extending treatment you are using, and how well you respond to the treatment itself. Those who have naturally long and curled lashes may experience longer-lasting results compared to those who have shorter or straighter eyelashes.
How Frequently Should You Have Treatments?
It’s common for patients to have regular treatment appointments once every two to three months. This is another area where this treatment is superior to lash extensions, which may need to be topped up once a month as extensions fall out. This treatment, on the other hand, does not require very frequent treatment sessions, which is ideal for patients looking for a low-maintenance lash treatment.
What Should You Do After Your Treatment?
After your treatment is complete, there are very few restrictions you will have. While other lash treatments may prevent you from washing your face or getting wet, you have much more freedom with this lash lifting treatment. For example, patients are able to swim, shower, wash their face, and even rub their eyes within 24 hours of the treatment, all without the fear of lash fall-out or ruining the results of the lash treatment.
Additionally, you will be able to use whatever eye cosmetics you want within 24 to 48 hours of your treatment, such as water-based mascara. You will also not have to worry about using specific eye makeup removers, as there is no risk of your makeup remover undoing the results of your treatment.
How Can You Nourish Your Eyelashes After Treatment?
If you aren’t using Latisse in addition to this lash lifting treatment, then you may want to consider other ways to nourish your eyelashes. Keeping your eyelashes healthy and strong is essential to maintaining your good results, particularly if you have had short and straight eyelashes or eyelashes that are prone to falling out from dryness.
One of the best ways to nourish your eyelashes after your treatment is to apply nut oils to your eyelashes one to two times per week. Things like almond oil, coconut oil, and jojoba oil are all good choices to maintain the health of your eyelashes and make your results look as good as possible.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Anyone who is not pleased with the natural appearance of their eyelashes is a good potential candidate for this treatment. While all eyelashes are good fits for this treatment, the patients who tend to benefit most from a lash lift are those who have short, straight, and downward-pointing eyelashes, as this lift treatment will curl these lashes into a better shape.
