LASH-FAQ's

 

 

LASH EXTENSIONS

 

What Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are individual synthetic lash made to replicate a natural eyelash. Eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The single synthetic lash is applied to each individual natural lash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions cannot be felt and are weightless.

How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last? 

Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine and following proper aftercare, fills should only be needed every 2 to 4 weeks.

 

Will Eyelash Extensions damage my natural lashes? 

 Your lashes can be damaged if you go to someone who was not properly trained,certified, licensed, and uses cheap products not intended for long wear.  Extensions properly applied by a certified, trained technician who uses quality products should not. Our eyelash extension application techniques and proper aftercare ensures your natural lashes will not become damaged.

Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions? 

Extension safe mascara is okay for right before your fill. It will not likely be needed right after your fill since we make you lashes full and dark. Regular mascara contains oil and is not safe. It will make your lashes look clumpy and less full. It was also cause faster lash shedding.

Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions? 

We do ask you to not wet the extensions for the first 24 hours after application. After that 24-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is cured enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond.

How soon can I wash my face after the extensions are applied? 

The suggested time is 24 hours after application. 

How long will it take to apply eyelash extensions and how is it done? 

The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 90-120 minutes for a full set and 45-60 minutes for a fill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. So of course it is reccomened to take a nap. During application, your lower lashes will be taped down and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time. The application is painless and relaxing.

How do I choose the look I want? 

I will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. 

Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service? 

For Full Sets please come with no eye makeup on with no strip lash adhesive glue. For fills also come with no eye makeup on. It is also recommended to clean lashes with foaming cleanser to remove oil and debris so that you will have a clean slate and a longer wear time. Lashes should not be permed (lash lift) at time of appointment.

How do i go about removing my  eyelash extensions ?

We do offer a service to have the extensions removed. A t thirty-minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the extensions without touching the skin and allowed to sit for 10 minutes. Once the adhesive is dissolved the extensions are removed exposing the natural lashes.

 

 

LASH LIFT

 

What is a Lash Lift?

Using silicone pads, this new technique can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look. No need for extensions and the associated aftercare, this will last you 6-8 weeks.

How do I need to prep for the treatment?

Please come in with no eye makeup. If you wear contacts, they must be removed.

Can a Lash Lift be used with lash growth products?

Yes growth products can be used and are encouraged. 

Will the Lash Lift damage my natural lashes?

No, your lash procedure will be performed with proper technique. The perming solution never touches the skin during the process. Redness can occur due to the product removal step (wiping the eyes of the glue) but should disappear within an hour. The procedure is totally painless.

How long will a Lash Lift last?

It typically last 6-8 weeks but can vary from person to person. It can even last up to 12 weeks. There is no need for any maintenance appointments. Although you will need to have the process repeated to lift the new hair. There are some actions that may cause the lift to weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat. If you find that your lift does not last the full 2 months, you can repeat the treatment after a minimum of 6 weeks of having the initial treatment.

 

Will I have a reaction to the lotion?

 It is very rare that people have a reaction. You can request a patch test 24 hour before if you feel uncertain. We place  lotion behind the ear for 15 minutes. Wipe it off and wait to see if any irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation.

I wear contact lenses, can I have this procedure?

Yes. We do ask that you remove them during the treatment.

 

Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?

Yes but you cannot wear eye makeup for  at least 24 hours after your treatment.  Regular mascara is preferred because waterproof mascaras can be harsh and weaken the lift.
