Frequently Asked Questions About Lash Filler: Answering Your Questions
InLei® Lash Filler is a revolutionary treatment in the lash industry that has been gaining traction since it launched in 2018. With it being a slightly newer development in the lash lift world, we’re going to dive into the most frequently asked questions about Lash Filler, providing in-depth answers to equip you with all the knowledge you need.
1. What exactly is a Lash Filler?
Lash filler is a specialised treatment designed to enhance the natural lashes by infusing them with a unique formula. Much like a lash lift or lash perm, this treatment creates a lift in the natural lashes. However, Lash Filler also nourishes the lashes, promoting healthier growth and increasing the thickness by up to 24% within three treatments. As a Lash Tech, understanding the science behind the formula can help in explaining the benefits to clients.
2. How long does the Lash Filler treatment last?
For Technicians, it's essential to help clients understand expectations. While lash fillers can last between 6 to 8 weeks, factors like the client's natural lash growth cycle, lifestyle, and aftercare can influence this duration. Regular touch-ups can help maintain the desired look, but always advise clients to wait at least 6-8 weeks between treatments.
3. Is the procedure painful for clients?
Ensuring client comfort is paramount. While the Lash Filler procedure is painless, some clients might feel a slight discomfort with the lash shield. It's essential to communicate with clients throughout the procedure, ensuring they are relaxed and comfortable and making adjustments where necessary.
4. Are there any side effects that you should be aware of?
While side effects are rare, you should always be prepared to address minor issues like temporary redness or itching. Always conduct a patch test 24-48 hours before the treatment to check for any allergic reactions.
5. Can clients wear mascara after Lash Filler?
While Lash Filler will often reduce the need for mascara, some clients may still wish to use it. Advise clients to wait at least 24 hours post-treatment and recommend gentle, water-based mascaras, such as InLei® Fashion Lash to avoid any potential interference with the Lash Lift.
6. How should Lash Technicians advise clients on lash lift aftercare?
Proper aftercare can significantly impact the longevity of the treatment. Provide clients with clear instructions, such as avoiding water and steam for the first 24 hours and steering clear of oil-based eye products. It’s also a good idea to recommend a lash serum to keep your clients’ natural lashes nourished after their appointment.
7. Are there clients for whom Lash Filler might not be suitable?
While the InLei® lash lift product is versatile, certain situations or treatments, such as chemotherapy or pregnancy, might make the treatment unsuitable. Always conduct a thorough consultation to assess each client's suitability and always patch test new clients.
8. How is Lash Filler different from a Lash Lift?
Both treatments enhance natural lashes, but their formulations differ. Lash lifts focus on solely curling the lashes, while fillers add volume and fullness as well as creating that much-loved curl.
9. Can clients use lash serums after a Lash Filler treatment?
Yes, but technicians should be aware of the products their clients are using. While lash serums can complement the effects of fillers, it's essential to ensure product compatibility to avoid adverse reactions. Always recommend a peptide-based lash serum, NOT hormone-based, as they can cause hair growth under the eyelid, hyperpigmentation, and hormone changes. Check outthis article for more information on the difference between the two.
10. How often should Lash Technicians recommend clients get Lash Filler?
While the effects can last up to 8 weeks, it's crucial to give the lashes a break between treatments. It’s recommended to wait at least six weeks to maintain the health of their natural lashes.
11. Is Lash Filler suitable for Muslim clients?
Lash Filler is a halal treatment, meaning you can safely offer it to your Muslim clients or anyone seeking a halal treatment. It is also wudhu friendly, as it is water permeable and therefore the body can be cleansed entirely. The same goes for InLei® Lash and Brow Tint.
