1) What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash Extensions accentuate the beauty of your own eyes. The process is a semi-permanent one and involves the professional adhering a synthetic or mink lash to each individual lash of your own. It is very relaxing and the results are amazing leaving you with beautiful, lush and natural extensions along your own lash line.
2) How will they feel and how will they look?
They will feel weightless and natural during the day and evening. Your lashes will look fuller, darker, more defined, longer and thicker. You will no longer need to wear mascara.
3) How long will they last?
When properly applied, they will last the full cycle of your natural lash cycle. The life cycle of a natural lash is the amount of time it takes for a natural lash to grow in and fall out. A person’s natural eyelash typically falls out every 60-90 days and is naturally replaced with a new eyelash. Each lash is at a different growth stage. Due to this cycle, ‘eyelash refills’ are recommended every 2-4 weeks so as to fill in the areas where new lashes are growing in.
4) How is the procedure done?
You will lie in a relaxed position, eye patches are placed underneath each eye on top of your lower lashes to protect them as each synthetic or mink lash is adhered to your individual lashes. The process takes approx. 2 hrs (incl consultation and if mascara has to be removed-lashes must be completely clean of any mascara before procedure), it also depends on the amount of lashes applied. Typically each treatment usually involves applying approx. 50+ lashes per eye.
5) Does it hurt?
No. You will rest comfortably with your eyes closed during the entire application. Most clients drift off to sleep and wake up with beautiful lashes.
6) Will eyelash extensions damage my own lashes?
No. The eyelash extension is attached to your natural lash about 1-2mm from the root of your lash. The glue does not touch the skin. Unless you pull out your lash with the extension attached you will create gaps across your lash line. Please see ‘Eyelash Extension Aftercare’.
