|on the most sensitive of eyes, lash extensions comfortably last up to 2 months with a touch-up in between (usually a 3 or 4 weeks). |
And with proper care and touch-up maintenance, lash extensions can sometimes last beyond 2 months.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET TOUCH-UPS?
It is recommended by the manufacturer to get touch-ups every 2-4 weeks. Your natural lashes fall off about every 30-90 days due to
the natural growth cycle and are replaced with the new growth of an eyelash. Touch-ups are for replacing the fallen out lashes or
replacing lashes that have outgrown the natural lash. Touch-ups take a shorter time than a full set application, with just about ten to
fifteen lashes per eye, and are therefore less expensive.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA TO THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
The biggest advantage of wearing lash extensions is that you don’t need to wear mascara. If you feel you must wear it, then choose
only water-based formulations and apply only at the tip. Do not use any type of oil based or waterproof mascaras.
CAN I SWIM, SHOWER, EXERCISE OR VISIT A SPA WHILE WEARING EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
YES! Our specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, and exercise. You can enjoy these lashes with little need
to adjust your lifestyle. However, please not that during the first 48 hours it is not recommended to swim, spa, or steam. The
adhesive needs time to cure and bond.
CAN I USE EYELASH CURLERS WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
The traditional, mechanical eyelash curlers should not be used (these are the metal contraptions that crimp lashes with a pinching
action.) These will damage and break the lash bonds. It is important to understand that our Eyelash Extensions are pre-curled and
do retain their curl throughout their life.
WHO USES EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Models and celebrities have been long wearers of lash extensions. With the natural look, anyone could be wearing them and you
would never know.
WHAT IS THE APPLICATION PROCESS LIKE?
It is a painless, gentle and relaxing procedure. The client lies down comfortably in the massage table. With their eyes closed, the
eyelash technician applies the lash extensions to each individual eyelash. It generally takes 90-120 minutes to apply one full set
(upper lashes only). Touch-ups can be done in 30- 45 minutes.
HOW MANY EYELASHES ARE USED FOR EACH APPLICATION?
This may vary for each client based on several factors including the amount of natural lashes the client has and the fullness they
desire. For the basic look, most eyes generally have 25-40 lashes applied to each eye. For a more glamorous set of eyelashes, as
many as 40-60 lashes may be applied per eye. It is important to discuss desired look you want to achieve during your consultation
prior to service.
IS THE PRODUCT FDA APPROVED? IS IT SAFE?
Because the FDA does not regulate the lash extensions industry, it can be difficult to know from all of the products out there, just
which products are safe to use. This is because many of the adhesives out there are foreign-made adhesives that are actually
intended for industrial use. Know that we use selected Xtremelash Canada adhesive, we chose a safe product that is made in the
U.S.A. and is a true, medical grade adhesive that has all of the lasting prosperities without the negative side effects, so our clients
will simply look and feel beautiful.
