Properly applied extensions should last as long as your natural lash life cycle, anywhere from 3-8 weeks depending on the individual. Of course rubbing or pulling will make them shed quicker. Aftercare is the key to longevity. An infill every 2-3 weeks is recommended.
The application process for lash extensions normally takes anywhere from 45 min. - 1.5 hours with someone who is experienced doing these. If you go to a newly certified professional it may take up to 3 hours. You will lay comfortably on a massage or facial table with your eyes closed. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad to cover your lower lashes . Then the extensions will be applied to each individual eyelash on a hair by hair basis.
1. Please refrain from applying eye makeup prior to coming in for the procedure. The extensions are connected with glue and therefore any debris may shorten the lifecycle of the extensions and cause them to fall off earlier. In the case makeup application is inevitable, we do have makeup remover and face wash available at our office for your convenience.
2. We recommend that you remove your contact lenses prior to receiving the procedure. Removing contacts will remarkably increase comfort level.
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We normally consult with you first to see what type of style you are interested in. We also determine what your lashes can hold in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a look for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as expsoure to steam or touching your eyes alot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen. Touch ups average about 45 minutes.
Yes. The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for about 12- 24 hours after the eyelash application. Please view our complete aftercare procedures.
