It’s hard to pick a facial feature that stands out the most, but a good case could be made for your eyes. Sure, a smile can light up a room, but it’s your eyes that speak volumes and make lasting impressions. And no matter how beautiful your eyes may be, if they’re not set off by full and inviting lashes, their effect can be diminished.
At Integrative Medicine, Laser and Aesthetics, our multidisciplinary team has one goal — to help our patients in Carmel, Indiana, look and feel great, both inside and out. As part of our wide range of aesthetic services, we offer the Elleebana® One-Shot Lash Lift™, which delivers sumptuous lashes in one simple treatment.
Here’s how this innovative service can give you the longer, fuller eyelashes you’ve always dreamed of.
The eye effect
When it comes to what humans find attractive, there have been countless studies on the effects that a nose, lips, or eyes have on overall appearance. After all, we know they play a role, but why? As it turns out, symmetry among your facial features is important, as are the size of these features. Both men and women alike find larger eyes to be more attractive, which may come down to pupil dilation, which signals attraction.
As well, the whites of your eyes demonstrate health — if they’re dull, yellow, or bloodshot, it speaks to something that’s wrong, while white, bright eyes convey great health and an attractive alertness.
But surrounding all of this are your eyelashes, which can play a role in how your eyes are perceived. Women have known this for millennia as they enhance their eyelashes to make their eyes appear bigger. And this daily effort can be labor intensive with only mediocre results (think eyelash curlers that clump your mascara).
Thankfully, we have a new technique that can give you fuller lashes that last — the Lash Lift.
Giving it a lift
As people try to accentuate their eyes through makeup, new services like lash extensions are becoming increasingly popular. These extensions, while effective, are time-consuming and expensive to keep up with — especially if you consider that they have to be maintained every two weeks.
With our Elleebana Lash Lift, we can give you lusher lashes in just 20 minutes by using a lifting lotion and silicone rods to lift your natural eyelashes. And the results can last 6-8 weeks, sometimes even up to 12 weeks. And the best part is that this solution holds through showers, swimming, and any other activity that gets your eyelashes wet.
We can use the silicone rods on eyelashes of all sizes, even short ones, and lift them into a more appealing shape that frames your eyes beautifully, even making them look longer. We perform the lash lift right at the roots of your lashes so that we can shape and position them properly for a more natural look.
Once positioned, we use a strengthening and nourishing solution that keeps your lashes looking healthy and vibrant.
From there, it’s your turn — you can use an enhancing mascara to lengthen and darken your newly lifted and shaped lashes to better effect.
