Beautiful Eyebrows and Lashes in Westlake Village

Summer is just around the corner, which means sun, swimming, vacations, and tons of fun. One thing that is surely on your to-do list before jet setting is to make sure your beauty regime is on-point. Before heading to the Maldives this summer, make sure you’ve got your eyebrows and lashes ready. Keep reading to learn more about how to get beautiful eyebrows and lashes in Westlake Village just in time for summer, as well as everything you need to know about microblading and lash lifts.

What is Microblading for Eyebrows?

If your eyebrows are sparse, lightly colored, not the shape you want, or you otherwise have to bust out your eyebrow pencil on the daily, then you’re going to love microblading. Microblading is a cosmetic procedure where a grouping of needles affixed to a handle manually creates strokes that resemble eyebrow hairs. This specialized technique for eyebrows and lashes in Westlake Village will give you natural-looking, full brows that last. That’s right, you’re going to be able to make the 50lb weight limit on your luggage this summer by ditching some makeup!

The procedure allows you to correct, or completely recreate lost brows. This technique deposits pigment into the skin, using a hand tool that creates small paper cut-like scratches. All pigments are expertly chosen to match your hair and skin color, flawlessly blending into any existing hairs to look as natural as possible.

How Long Does It Take?

It’s important that you meet with your microblading consultant (Elmira is the utmost expert for eyebrows and lashes in Westlake Village!) to discuss how you’d like your eyebrows to look. Next, we’re going to numb you to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible throughout the process. We make sure the process is essentially painless—Most clients only feel light pressure or scraping. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin; some discomfort may be experienced. Finally, we will do the procedure. This all adds up to about 2 hours for the first appointment.

After the first appointment, touch-up appointment times are as follows:

  • Second appointment (required): 1 hr
  • 6-month touch-up: 1.5 hrs
  • 12-month touch-up: 1.5 hrs

Recovery Time and Other Information

The color will seem bold for 3-4 days after your procedure, but don’t stress: It will fade dramatically as they heal. It is crucial to follow the After Care process Elmira spells out for you during this healing process to achieve the desired effect.

As with permanent makeup and the feathering technique, retaining the pigmentation on your skin depends on your skin type and tone. However, the majority of clients are able to maintain their shape and pigment for approximately 1 year after two procedures have been performed. After your first two procedures, touch-ups can be booked as needed.

What is a Lash Lift and Lash Tint for Eyelashes?

Imagine a world where you do not have to use your eyelash curler every day, or even apply mascara. Waking up with perfectly curled, dark lashes can be a reality! A lash lift and a lash tint will give you photo-ready lashes for 4-6 weeks (or until they grow out). According to Harper’s Bazaar, all lashes have a natural shape to them, so this process alters that shape via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. (It’s not as scary as it sounds, as your eyes are closed as it’s applied but yes, there are some chemicals involved.)

If you’re looking for great lashes without all the time, maintenance, and upkeep that lash extensions require, a lash lift and lash tint would be perfect for you.

How Long Does It Take?

Also according to Harper’s Bazaar, your therapist will cleanse the eye area and place a silicone rod onto the eyelids. The natural lashes are then curled over and attached to the rod with an adhesive to set the lashes. Once the therapist ensures everything is positioned correctly, a lifting lotion is applied to allow the lashes to mold around the curling rod, followed by a setting lotion that sets the lash shape. Expect the whole thing to take about 45-60 minutes. Many salons also require a patch test 48 hours before your appointment to ensure you don’t have a reaction to the solutions used.

Recovery Time and Other Information

Since lash lifts and lash tints are completely painless, no numbing cream or downtime is required at all. The only thing we ask is: Avoid touching or washing your eyelashes for a full day and don’t put on mascara for 48 hours. Other than that, you’re good to go!
