- Avoid waterproof mascara at least 2 days prior to your appointment.
- If you wear contact lenses, bring your case to put lenses in before the application process and bring your regular eyeglasses for afterwards.
- Shower the morning of your appointment (lashes shouldn't get wet for 48 hours after application,
so showering right before your appointment is best!).
How long will my Eyelash Extensions last?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent because the life cycle of a natural lash is typically two to three months, during which time it grows, remains "at rest," and then falls out. Once it falls out, it is replaced by the growth of a new lash. At any given moment, your lashes are at different stages in their life cycle, which is why touch-ups should be performed to maintain your desired look. If your hair and nails grow quickly then that means that your lashes will also be growing, shedding and renewing themselves quickly. You may find that your lashes may not last as long as someone with slow hair growth. Your lifestyle and the type of work you do will also have a bearing on how long they will last.Lash extensions can be continued indefinitely as long as you'd like, and professionally removed at any time. Some clients have been wearing extensions consistently for several years!
What is the eyelash extension service procedure?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed during the entire procedure. Your bottom lashes will be protected with a firming under eye gel pad. Your technician will isolate each of your natural eyelashes and attach one synthetic eyelash with a tiny amount of medical grade adhesive, without touching your skin. The initial application generally totals a little under 120 minutes including your consultation, with each lash touch-up completed in as little as 60 minutes. It is completely painless, and so relaxing that most of our clients take a nap, then awaken to beautiful, fuller eyelashes. That's real beauty sleep!
