What Is Eyelash Enhancement?
Eyelash Enhancement is meant to create the appearance of thicker eyelashes. This treatment adds color, thickness and definition to the lash line and enhances the eye area by making eyes look more defined. Some of the more common reasons to get eyelash enhancement include: asymmetrical eyes, eyes that are too small, aging eyes that are looking tired and wanting thicker eyelashes.
Our clients have many reasons for wanting eye procedures done and we want to correctly and accurately direct them to what is best for them. As experts we take into consideration facial asymmetry, aging process, color fading and color migration, just to name a few, in order to help our clients select the best shape and procedure for them.
For example; some clients prefer the eyeliner to be wedged and others like it domed, it will be up to us to direct our client to the best choice. Remember, when it comes to the eyes, its better to keep your procedures more conservative. This will help you look healthier, stay looking better, longer and produce fewer problems from your procedure in the future.
