My name is Helen Ellis, I'm a fully qualified and insured beautician working in the Hertfordshire area.
LVL stands for Length, volume and lift. One of the newest eyelash treatments available and quickly becoming beauty must have! LVL lash lifts provide instant results with no maintenance and the effects last between 6-8 weeks.
LVL lash lifts works by straightening the lashes in an upright position to add length and extend the look of the natural lash. If you imagine perming and curling an eyelash the curl would reduce the lashes length, whereas with this treatment you straighten the natural lash upwards and tint which adds length, volume and lift. The treatment takes between 30-45 minutes depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes and requires no maintenance from the client. Please arrive for your appointment without any eye make up on.
LVL lashes has been designed to enhance your natural lashes by straightening them instead of curling them to give the illusion of longer and thicker lashes. If you're looking to make your eyes stand out and lashes more noticeable without the maintenance of individual eyelash extensions or strip lashes then this treatment is the perfect alternative for you. LVL lashes use no adhesives or eyelash extensions, have immediate results, require no maintenance and you choose whether or not you wish to still wear mascara afterwards.
I wasn't happy with a previous beauticians attempt at extending my eyelashes. After speaking to Helen on the phone, she put my concerns at complete ease. Im very pleased with the finished result, and will be returning soon.
Standing for length, volume and lift LVL is a groundbreaking new technique designed to give you longer looking lashes without the need for lash extensions.
LVL was developed by the Nouveau Lashes design team. They recognised that there was a gap in the market for natural lash enhancements, particularly for people who didn't want lash extensions.
Although LVL is great for many but it's not suitable for everyone. Clients who have had a medical contraindication to the treatment, or who have experienced an allergic reaction to the patch test, cannot have LVL. Also, it's only suitable for clients who have their own natural lashes and clients with excessively brittle or fine eyelashes may not be able to benefit from LVL. If I do not believe you will fully benefit from the treatment I will advise you of this beforehand.
No. Clients usually find the treatment very relaxing. You lie on a treatment bed with your eyes closed throughout. 45 minutes of 'me time'.
Yes. The choice is yours, many clients feel the results of LVL means they don't feel the need for mascara as their eyelashes are naturally more noticeable but if you want too it will only enhance the results further.
Yes. You can have lash extensions added to your LVL Lashes. LVL treatments are particularly good for people who want lash extensions, but have downward-pointing lashes. Lash extensions can cause downward-pointing lashes to lower even further. With LVL they can get the essential lift they need before the extensions are added. You must wait 48 hours after an LVL treatment before having lash extensions applied though.
You should expect to see the results of the lift for 6-8 weeks.
