LVL is a revolutionary eyelash treatment which is designed to lift your natural lash at the root, creating the effect of longer, lifted lashes.
With immediate results lasting between 6 and 8 weeks, it is the perfect treatment for people with a low maintenance beauty regimen, busy lifestyle, allergies and hay fever, or just those who want to make the most of their natural eyelashes!
How LVL Works
The structure of a single hair is made up of three parts: the hair cuticle, the cortex and the medulla. When the lifting balm is applied during the LVL treatment, the hydrogen comes into contact with the air and oxidises. This creates a chemical process which breaks down the disulphate bonds in each hair, allowing them to move into a new shape. The next step is applying the volumizing fix, which reforms the disulphate bonds into their new shape, which is long and lifted with maximum volume!
This new shape of the eyelashes takes up to 48 hours for the disulphate bonds to lock into place and cure, which is why it is important to follow the correct aftercare for 48 hours post-treatment. Once the lashes get hot or wet, they will fall back into their alpha-keratin (natural) state and the lift will drop.
LVL lashes are everywhere right now.
It’s the hottest lash treatment in the celebrity world, with beauty bloggers agreeing that it’s the ‘best treatment ever’.
If you’re looking for a way to elongate, enhance and exaggerate your lashes, then LVL is the answer. Say goodbye to mascara, lash curlers and extensions; here are five reasons LVL will change your life.
They’re fuss free
The wonderful thing about LVL lashes is that they’re natural. We lift, volumise, lengthen and tint your natural lashes, and once you leave the salon, that’s it! No coming back for maintenance treatments and no need to come back to remove them.
They’re long lasting
LVL lashes last six to eight weeks. That’s a lot of days to have lashes-on-fleek.
You’ll save time getting ready in the morning
Do you ever wake up and wish you could have ten extra minutes in bed? Well, with LVL lashes, you can! Waking up with perfect lashes every morning will cut down the time it takes you to get ready in the morning, leaving you with more time to work out, eat a nutritious breakfast, or simply hit that snooze button a few more times.
You can still wear mascara, though you won’t need to!
If you wear lash extensions, you’ll know that wearing mascara over them can cause them to clump. As LVL uses your natural lashes you can still wear mascara and use make up remover, though your lashes will look so good you certainly won’t need to.
It’s perfect for holidays
LVL is the perfect treatment for your holidays because it doesn’t require any maintenance. The last thing you want on holiday is a full face of make-up and as you don’t have to wear mascara with LVL lashes you can kiss goodbye to panda-eye disasters in the pool or while sunbathing!
How To Look After Your LVL Lashes
Since the creation of the revolutionary LVL lash treatment back in 2006, it quickly became a very popular treatment and continues to take the beauty industry by storm. Immediate results, low maintenance upkeep, amazing value for money, longevity, in addition to the fact that it doesn’t damage your natural lashes (phew!)
What’s not to love?
As well as being extremely popular in the beauty industry, LVL lashes fit perfectly into every type of lifestyle. Whether you are a parent who is constantly on the go, a fitness blogger who is constantly in and out of the gym/sauna/pool, or someone who is fairly low maintenance and just wants to invest in a treatment that will accentuate the natural beauty of their eyes without needing mascara (and give them an extra 10 minutes in bed!) Celebrities such as Michelle Keegan and Lisa Snowden absolutely swear by it, and it’s regularly included in beauty bloggers round-ups as one of their favourite treatments. Just ask In The Frow, Zoe LDN and Tar Marz.
One of the biggest appeals of LVL is that is requires little to no upkeep. However, the first 48 hours post-treatment do require a little bit of TLC and special attention, to ensure you get the maximum results from your lashes. Following the correct aftercare is important, as your lashes are still getting used to their new shape, and failure to do so could lead to an adverse reaction.
Showers, Saunas and Sunbeds
After this time period you can shower, but avoid submerging your head and face fully in the bath or directly under the shower head. Completely avoid visiting saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and sunbeds for 48 hours post treatment. The high temperature can cause your lashes to drop, or not last as long as they should, which is between 6 and 8 weeks.
Manipulating the Lashes
As difficult as it can be sometimes, try to avoid touching or rubbing your eye area, especially when you are washing or cleansing your face. Eyelash curlers and perming equipment are also completely out of bounds, although once you see the results of your long, lifted natural lashes you will want to toss them in the bin anyway!
Another thing to consider is how you sleep. Facing down into the pillow, or sleeping on one side could manipulate the shape of your lashes into different positions. If this sounds like you, try propping up your head with pillows, and making an effect to fall asleep on your back.
Make-Up and Maintenance
An LVL treatment includes a tinting stage, which helps to lengthen and create a thicker appearance in your natural lashes without the need for mascara. However, if you still choose to wear mascara, try and use one with a water-based formula, and avoid waterproof varieties. We also recommend to avoid all oil-based products, especially make-up remover. Remember to brush your lashes through with a clean mascara wand after getting them wet to ensure they dry naturally in their correct shape.
As well as following the tips we have shared above, we also suggest applying our Lash and Brow Conditioning Serum as part of your morning and evening skincare regimen. The new formula is packed full of nourishing goodness which promotes strong and healthy lashes, and even acts as a primer beneath your mascara.
