what are eyelash extensions?
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are comprised of single synthetic mink lashes that are virtually weightless adding length and fullness without mascara. Lashes are applied with an adhesive to each individual eyelash. Neither the glue nor the lash will touch the eyelid, leaving a 1-2mm gap from the eyelid to allow for mobility. The bond is designed to last until the lashes naturally fall out (typically 3-6 weeks), though the extensions may fall out faster if one uses oil-based eye makeup removers or rubs their eyes regularly. Once it is starting to become sparse, a fill is required to maintain the desired look.
Eyelash extensions are ideal for weddings, vacations, special occasions, photoshoots etc, as they are comfortable, easy and completely replace mascara and strip lashes. Although they are ideal for these special occasions, most clients simply enjoy them on an everyday basis to avoid wearing mascara.
will they affect my real lashes?
When eyelash extensions are applied correctly, and the appropriate thickness and weight is used, no damage will occur. Lashes will fall out naturally on their own once they have reached their adult phase and not due to the extensions. It is imperative to separate each lash using lash isolation, to prevent what is known as the tug and pull factor during application. It is important for clients to be gentle with their eyes and refrain from using any oil based products or salt water near the eyes.
During the application, you are comfortably laying down with your eyes closed. The area needs to be cleansed to ensure there is no makeup, mascara, oil residue or anything that will affect the adhesive. Medical tape and under eye pads are placed under the lower lash line to prevent the top lashes from adhering to the bottom lashes. Lashes are then individually isolated, and each extension is attached until the look is complete. A full set takes anywhere from 1.5-2hours. It is painless and relaxing, so you are free to fall asleep.
In order to maximize the life of the lashes, there are a few things to remember:
- For the first 2 hours, do not wash or rub your eyes
- For the first 24 hours, no facials, steaming, swimming, washing eyes or tanning
- Never use oil-based products or eye removers
- Be gentle while cleansing the area and pat dry
- Do not pull of your lashes, if you want them removed, have them removed safely by me
