What are "Eyelash Extensions"?
Eyelash extensions are an application of semi-permanent synthetic lashes that are attached one by one to your own natural lashes. The single strand of synthetic lashes are applied delicately to one natural lash one at a time for an average of 70 to 100 lash extensions per eye.
Clients are comfortably reclined on massage bed with their eyes closed, and lower lashes are covered to prevent the top lashes from adhering to the bottom lashes.
The procedure is non invasive, painless and so relaxing that clients typically fall asleep then awaken to lush, beautiful lashes.
It takes about 60 to 90 minutes and re-lashes take as little as 30-45minutes.
How long lashes last?
Properly applied, an eyelash extension will stay bonded to your natural lashes until the end of its normal growth cycle, which is up to 90-120 days.
However, like your scalp hair, natural lashes grow and shed in a cycle and
are continuously falling out and growing back in.
Because of the irregularity of this growth cycle, most lash customers come in for a re-lash every two to three weeks to replenish the fallen lashes and maintain the look.
Before Eyelash Extensions
Remove all make-up and oils from eye area and eyelashes, including eyeliner, eye shadow, eye creams, eye serums and foundation.
Avoid wearing contacts or wearing glasses.
It usually takes 48 hours for the adhesive to dry thoroughly and yield a strong bond. During this time, the adhesive bond is vulnerable to moisture, steam and excessive heat.
Clients should be careful with following activities:
Friction from rubbing, styling, and playing with the lashes.
Sleeping on side or stomach
Excessively rubbing your eyes.
Use of oil-based eye care products on or near your lashes, such as eye creams.
