What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibers that mimic the look and feel of natural eyelashes. Our light and feathery lash extensions come in seven different lengths, three levels of thickness, and two degrees of curl. Unlike department store strip lashes, also known as synthetic mink eyelashes, eyelash extensions are applied with a medical-grade adhesive to each individual eyelash, not the eyelid skin.
Lash extensions allow you to achieve fuller, longer eyelashes without the need for mascara. This is a rather involved and meticulous service that requires the skill and expertise of a trained professional for precise application. With proper application from a skilled eyelash extension stylist, lash extensions can look so natural that they’re virtually undetectable – even up close. Our lash extensions are available in a number of colors, lengths, and thicknesses, and they can be worn while you sleep, shower, and swim.
How Long Do The Eyelashes Last?
Eyelash extensions remain attached to your natural lashes for the duration of the natural eyelash growth cycle. A normal, healthy eyelash will grow and eventually shed over the course of 30 to 60 days. The eyelashes shed at a rate of one to two lashes per day, but there are always new lashes in the growth phase that will replace the ones that have fallen out. How long your eyelash extensions last ultimately depends on your aftercare techniques, but with regular cleansing and gentle maintenance, eyelash extensions can last up to 60 days.
Who Wears Eyelash Extensions?
From brides to corporate professionals, women from all walks of life who want to add a touch of glam to their daily look without the extra time or effort choose eyelash extensions. Women as young as 16 all the way to 90+ have turned to eyelash extensions to accentuate the natural beauty of their eyes while freeing themselves from the daily hassles of eyelash curlers and mascara application.
Can I Wear Mascara with My Eyelash Extensions?
The lengthening and darkening effect of lash extensions completely remove the need to apply mascara. In fact, applying and ultimately removing mascara will weaken the bond in the lash and compromise the life of your lash extensions. Applying mascara may also lead to clumping and tangling, causing the extensions to fall out prematurely. You should refrain from curling, pulling, or rubbing your eyelashes to prevent unintentional fallout. If you choose to wear mascara, we recommend that you avoid waterproof mascara and opt for a water-soluble, oil-free mascara and water-soluble remover.
Can Eyelash Extensions Be Removed?
Absolutely! Our aesthetician can easily remove your eyelash extensions at any time. We strongly recommend that you do not remove them yourself to prevent damage to your natural eyelashes. Please return to our practice at any time for our complimentary removal service.
What Do I Do If a Lash Should Loosen or Become Dislodged?
At the time of your lash application service, you’ll receive an eyelash brush in your maintenance package for grooming and brushing your eyelashes. If you notice loose lash extensions, do not pull them. Simply use the eyelash brush to encourage fall out.
Your lash extensions will fall out according to your natural lash growth cycle, so we recommend lash extension refill services every two to three weeks, depending on the rate of your eyelash growth. Your natural eyelashes will eventually adapt to the eyelash extensions, and with the proper maintenance practices, you can significantly reduce the time between refills.
