Fuller, Longer and more Glamorous lashes are high in demand! Lash extensions are a semi-permanent treatment in which we apply a single synthetic mink extension to one of your healthy natural lashes with a medical grade adhesive.
Do I need to prep before my appointment?
Absolutely! Please arrive to your appointment with cleansed makeup free lashes. If you aren’t sure what products to use we carry all the aftercare products you need to ensure you get the best retention possible.
Will lash extensions ruin or cause my natural lashes to fall out?
No. Based on the growth cycle of eyelashes, when applying lashes, lash stylist are trained to look for adult lashes to attach the individual synthetic lashes. Young (baby) lashes are left to allow them to fully develop and when it comes times to re-lash, we have new strong lashes to bond to. Lash extensions will not cause your natural eyelashes to fall out. Remember that your natural lashes have their own life cycle of falling and growing – like the hair found elsewhere on your body. It's hard to notice small lashes falling out, but when attached to a thicker, longer lash they become much more noticeable! Once the extensions are removed, your own eyes may appear smaller, your natural lashes, shorter and sparser because you've been accustomed to a full set of longer, thicker lashes.
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Lash extensions are applied while you are lying down with your eyes closed on a comfortable spa bed in a serene setting. This usually takes about 1.5 hours for a full set of lashes, but also depends on the set of lashes you decide to get. After prepping your lashes, your bottom lashes are protected with a gel or collagen eye pads, lash extensions are then applied 1-to-1 with medical grade adhesive. It is a really relaxing, non-invasive treatment and most of our clients take the time to catch up on their beauty sleep!
How long will my new lashes last?
Your new lashes will last between 2 to 4 weeks depending on your skincare routine and your own natural lash life cycle. To maintain the full look of your lashes, it will require you to maintain refills every 2-3 weeks.
How often should I be coming in for lash refills?
We recommend getting refills every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Factors such as exposure to humidity, steam, how you sleep, or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to shed prematurely. Refills can take from 30 - 60 minutes, depending on the state of your remaining lashes. A good sign of when you need a refill is when your extensions are 50%-60% gone.
Can I apply mascara to my lash extensions?
Yes. However you must only apply water-based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara and any type of oil based mascara dissolves the bonding agent of the extensions and causes them to fall out sooner. Ask your lash specialist about our water-based mascara’s.
Can I swim, shower or exercise while wearing lash extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise. However we recommend that you DO NOT WASH your eye area for at least 24 hours after the initial eyelash extension application. This allows the bonding agent to fully dry and prolong the life of your extensions.
