Lash & Brow Treatments

Our estheticians are well-trained to take care of your brows. We take our time to listen so we can give you exactly what you want.

Available at both our Kingston Downtown and West End locations, our eyebrow services include eyebrow shaping, eyebrow tinting, and micro-blading. Cher-Mère also offers eyelash tinting, lash lifting, and Xtreme Eyelash Extensions.

 

Micro-blading

Micro-blading: Micro-blading is a semi-permanent technique used to fill in missing eyebrow hairs, constructing the desired brow shape. Prior to microblading, time is spent conversing with the client to draw and decide upon the shape and colour. After this process, a microblade is used to make micro-cuts, like brow strokes, combined with pigment to make the perfect brow shape. Numbing cream is used to ease discomfort. Treatment time: 3h.

Lash Lifting 

Lash Lifting: Lash Lifting is a semi-permanent lash curling technique that works with your natural lashes. Each lash is individually "lifted" creating the perfect curl for your lash length. With lifted lashes, your eyes “open up” and lashes appear fuller and longer. This service also includes a Lash Tint.

How long does this appointment take?: The treatment takes about one hour.

How long does it last?: The Lift & Tint lasts up to 4-6 weeks.

Eyelash Extensions

The Xtreme Eyelash System applies individual lashes to each of your lashes. We use this system at Cher-Mère because this technique considers the thickness, length, and curve of your lashes. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach, but a service tailored to suit you! This allows us to give you the best lashes we can. We offer both mink and regular Xtreme lashes.

How long does this appointment take? The initial process lasts about two hours, while touch-ups, recommended every two to three weeks, can take up to an hour.

How long does it last?: You lose the extension when you lose your natural lash, which is about every 6 to 8 weeks. Women shed about 20 lashes per week on average.

How to take care of eyelash extensions: Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 – 48 hours, as water can weaken the glue before it has the chance to set. Steer clear of oil-based eye products, cream-based eyeliners, and waterproof mascaras, which can be difficult to take off even under normal circumstances. Never use a cotton pad or swab, which can snag the extension, pulling it out.

If you’re a stomach or side sleeper, consider a silk or satin pillowcase along with a nightly application of a lash topcoat.

To clean eyelash extensions, use an oil-free lash cleanser formulated specifically for eyelash extensions, as some products contain ingredients that can weaken the bond and cause extensions to shed prematurely.
