When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last through the length of your eyelashes natural growth cycle, which is between 60 to 120 days. Touch-ups are required every 3-4 weeks to fill in any lashes that have fallen out and to fill in on the new growth. When you come in for regular touch ups, you should normally have at least 50% to 75% of your eyelash extensions still attached.
Eyelash Extensions naturally darken your lashes, your lashes will look vivid and mascara is not necessary.
If desired, you may wear water-based mascara on the tip of the lashes. Never use waterproof mascara as any type of mascara remover may not be used at all. Rubbing directly on the lashes, or using mascara remover will weaken the bonding. Water-based mascara should come off with just soap and water. We recommend Soothing Eye makeup remover from Dermalogica, because it's gentle on the eyes and completely oil free.
You should schedule touch-up appointments every three to four weeks, to make sure that the lashes will look thick and full all the time.
There is no risk at all of any kind if you choose an experienced technician. You also want to make sure your eyelashes are strong and healthy enough (common eyelashes) to be able to support the small extra weight.
We, as the professionals need to educate our client on how the lash cycle works. This is how we can create realistic expectations from the client, and explain why touch-up appointments are necessary to keep the lashes looking full and long.
At the moment we only use black eyelashes.
Yes, they are safe.
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim and exercise. However, do not get lashes wet for the first 24 hours and avoid hot steam or saunas for 48 hours after application.
You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Use an oil-free makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application.
Eyelash extensions need minimal care. Avoid excessive rubbing, waterproof mascaras, oil based cleansers, lotion or make-up remover, as these will loosen the adhesive and shorten the life of your extensions. Use a micro-brush to fully clean the eyeliner around the eye.
Eyelash extensions are made of synthetic, soft, and lush fibers with a high gloss finish. We carry different lengths customizable to suit your specific look!
There is absolutely no risk if a pregnant woman gets her Eyelash Extensions done. The only factor to consider is the amount of time she will lay down on the table and the discomfort associated with it. However in these cases we use a very comfortable, reclinable chair to get the job done.
Please do not attempt to remove them yourself as you may damage your natural lashes. 1. Come in and let us professionally remove them with a special remover. 2. Or, let the eyelash extensions slowly fall out by themselves. This will take about 2 months.
Eyelash extensions are safe by proper application and extension of a natural eyelash by a trained Professional. The application process is so pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep. Your eyes should be closed, covered and protected during the entire procedure. The eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash, one synthetic lash to one natural lash, and do not touch the skin. However, improper application by an unqualified technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a certified professional.
Yes, it is safe to receive eyelash extensions on tinted or dyed eyelashes. However, it is not recommended to tint, dye, or perm lashes after having the eyelash extensions applied.
