People who desire longer, fuller lashes have several options to make their lashes thicker, longer, and more prominent. From eyelash extensions to lash lift, lash lengthening techniques have evolved through the years. 

The subtle change in the eye make-up has eliminated the need to maintain eyelash extension or false eyelashes. With the new eyelash enhancement techniques, you can flaunt long lashes while wearing only one coat of mascara.

Below are more permanent lash-lengthening techniques.

Eyelash Hair Implants

Eyelash hair implant, also known as eyelash transplantation, is a relatively new procedure that was originally used to treat areas of the eyelid that have no eyelashes due to alopecia, genetics or trauma such as burns. 

Similar to standard hair transplant procedures, the hair follicles for eyelash hair implants are extracted using either the strip harvesting method known as follicular unit transportation (FUT) or the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method. The donor hairs are prepped individually for transplant and inserted into the lash line for permanent results. 

Worth mentioning is that since the hairs are extracted from discreet locations such as the back of the head, they will continue to grow for a lifetime and will need to be periodically trimmed and curled.

Latisse

Latisse® works via an active ingredient called bimatoprost. Like the hair on the head, eyelashes sprout, grow for some time, and eventually fall out. Science suggests that Lattisse stimulates and extends the growth cycle and increases the number of hairs that sprout. 

The application involves dabbing the solution on the upper lash line with a sterile applicator. Be sure to remove cosmetics and contact lenses before applying Latisse.

This treatment takes several weeks to start seeing eyelashes sprouting. While you may see eyelashes growing in as early as one month, the most visible results won’t appear until 12 to 16 weeks after using Latisse. 

Lash Lift

A lashlift is a perm for your natural lashes. It shapes the eyelashes from base to tip into a perfect eye-opening curl making them look longer and more pronounced. This treatment alters the shapes of the eyelashes via a tiny curling rod and a lifting solution. 

The curls last from anywhere between eight to 12 weeks depending on your skin type. If you use a lot of oils on your face or have oily skin, this can break down the keratin treatment faster. 

Lash lifting services are becoming mainstream and we expect to see a large uptick. You may consider offering the services if interested. To start, you just need to enroll in a lash lift course or lash lift training class. So is there a lash lift certification near me? Yes, there is a good number of lash lift Montreal training courses where you can get training and become a certified formation lash lift practitioner. 

Lash Enhancement Tattoos

This treatment involves tattooing a light black line of ink using a European tool called the Nouveau Contour. The tattoos work like a permanent eyeliner with a more natural look. This advanced micro-pigmentation technique creates fill-in for gaps amid the eyelashes, creating the illusion of thicker, darker, and full lashes. 

The treatment is completed in a two-step process, with a touch-up period of 4-6 weeks after the initial application. Afterwards, it can last up to 3-5 years.
