FAQ’s About LVL

1. What does LVL stand for? It stands for length, volume and lift.

2. What does LVL do? LVL represents the latest technology in lash enhancements. Using a silicon shield at the base of your lashes, LVL lifts even the straightest lashes for a big lash look.

3. Why does the initial appointment take longer than follow up appointments? We must choose a silicon shield for the shape of your eyelid. Once we know which silicon shield to use we can use that size on all subsequent appointments.

4. How is LVL different from lash perming? Lash perming is a harsh treatment that curls the lashes in much the same way rollers curl your hair. It can sometimes make your lashes appear shorter, as a result. LVL doesn’t use any adhesives, rollers, or extensions. The silicon shield lifts the lash from the root for a big lash look that also makes your eye color pop.

5. Is it painful to get LVL? Not at all! In fact, it’s very relaxing.

6. How long does it last? LVL treatments last between 2-3 months, depending on your lash quality.

7. What kind of maintenance is involved? Hardly any. We do recommend the LVL Eyelash Conditioning Serum. It nourishes lashes, coating and sealing in moisture for a shinier, healthier appearance. It’s also excellent as a primer before using mascara.

8. Can I still get lash extensions if I want to? Absolutely. Just wait 48 hours before doing so. For downward sloping lashes, LVL is recommended first because the extensions will further slope the lashes if you don’t.

9. Can I swim with LVL? Yes. There are no stipulations with LVL.

10. How does LVL work? Instead of forcing straight lashes to curl, it lifts them from the root of the lash. The straight lash now appears longer and fuller looking without any adhesives or extensions.

11. Can I get my LVL Lashes tinted? Yes, we can tint them during the same session as your LVL treatment. Tinting gives you much more freedom and convenience.

12. Are there any other eye types that especially benefit from LVL? Yes, hooded and mature eyes love this treatment. It makes the eye appear more alert and sparkly.

What is galvanic current?

It is a steady, direct stream of electric current. The current is very low and causes a slight tingling sensation. It is not at all painful.

How long has galvanic current been used in the aesthetic industry?

About 100 years ago, galvanic current was successfully used to force water-soluble substances through the skin. The skincare industry began using it with excellent results about 70 years ago, and continues to use it today.

How is it used in facials?

Galvanic current pushes water-soluble ingredients down into the three layers of your skin, not just one, as with most traditional facials. These deeper layers love it because products rarely get a chance to reach this far below the skin’s surface. The outcome is two-fold. The current “awakens” and stimulates collagen and elastin to produce younger, firmer looking skin, and results are longer lasting.

I’ve thought about facial fillers but don’t really like the idea of needles. Could galvanic facials help?

Yes! Collagen and elastin slow down as we age. Galvanic current stimulates both fibers, waking them up, you might say, so that they start producing more. That means tighter, firmer skin.

What kinds of chemicals are used in galvanic facials?

None! There are no toxins and no harsh chemicals in a galvanic facial. We use water-soluble ingredients because Mother Nature is the most powerful anti-aging advocate we have!

Are galvanic facials painful?

Not in the least! You might feel a slight tingling sensation, but that’s all. It’s an extremely relaxing experience.

What kind of results can I expect with a galvanic facial?

Because galvanic facials use a low-level current that reaches into all three layers of your skin, results are not only immediate they are longer lasting, with continued results for weeks after your facial. And, if you also use our professional skincare line, Elemis, those results will be enhanced because it is an active, potent line.

What skin types can benefit from galvanic facials?

All skin types can safely use and benefit from this incredible facial, including sensitive! Excellent for oily, combination, dry and mature, galvanic facials are customized for each individual skin type.

What about acne? Can galvanic facials help with it?

Yes, for those with mild to moderate cases of acne, galvanic facials are great! Galvanic current softens blackheads, which makes them much easier and less painful to extract. They also remove blockages like whiteheads and clear congestion that leads to acne.

How often should I get a galvanic facial?

We recommend every 4-6 weeks. The deeper layers of your skin will continue to be stimulated, producing more collagen and elastin to counteract sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Monthly facials continue to enhance the effectiveness of your skincare products.

1. Will lash tinting make my eyelashes fall out?
It’s highly unlikely. We use an all vegetable dye, which minimizes irritation. However, it’s our policy to have you do a patch test 24-48 hours before your first application, just to make sure you have no allergies to the dye.

2. How long will lash tinting last?
About 3-5 weeks.

3. Should I take any precautions after I get my lashes tinted?
Yes, once your lashes have been tinted, do not get them wet for at least 24 hours. You want to make sure the dye is fully dry.

4. Can I swim with my lashes tinted?
Absolutely! You can exercise, watch a tearjerker movie, and peel onions without the hassle of mascara streaking.

5. Why do you want me to get a patch test before the application? I’ve never been allergic to anything.
Although it is unlikely for you to have a reaction to the dye, we like to be absolutely sure. It’s just a precaution.

6. Can I choose a color the same way I do with mascara?
Yes, you can. And we have many to choose from.

7. What if I want to change to a different color the next time I get my lashes tinted? Can I do that?
Sure! You can change the color as often as you like.

8. Can I wear mascara with my lash tinting?
Yes, but the mascara remover will fade the dye, shortening the life of your lash tinting.

9. Is lash tinting safe?
Our lash tinting is an all vegetable dye. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals. It is very safe, but we do recommend a patch test 24-48 hours before the application to make sure you have no reaction.

10. Can anyone apply lash tinting?
Unfortunately, yes. That’s why we recommend you have a professional apply the tint. You don’t want someone with minimal experience-or none at all—to work with your eyes. Always get a trained professional for such a delicate task.
