LASH BEFORE & AFTER CARE

BEFORE CARE

  • Clean your lashes with mild, oil free cleanse.  Do not use oil based makeup removers.

  • Do not curl your lashes before your appointment.

  • Do not apply mascara. Removing mascara takes a lot of time.

  • Before fill appointments, please deep clean your lashes of any make-up residue and build up.

  • You will be expected to keep your eyes closed during the entire procedure.

  • Avoid caffeine before your appointment.

 

AFTERCARE

  • Be gentle with your lashes. Do not touch them or rub them.  Wait 2 hours before getting lashes wet.

  • Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face or let the shower head hit your lashes directly.

  • Avoid swimming, steam room, or hot sauna within the first 48 hours.

  • Do not use mascara or eyelash curler.

  • Use oil-free products around the eye area.

  • Do not pull your lash extensions, as it will take out your own lash as well.

  • Golden Rule: the less you touch, the better your extensions will stay on.

  • Maintain your lash extensions with regular touch-up appointments.

FAQ

1. How are eyelash extensions applied?

Our eyelash extensions are applied individually, one by one, 1mm away from the eyelid, never directly on the skin, to your natural eyelashes. Results can vary from very subtle and natural to very noticeable and dramatic.

2. How long does the procedure take?

The procedure can take anywhere from 45  to 90 minutes depending on the service received.

3. Are eyelash extensions bad/harmful?

No, if they are applied correctly and properly ( to each individual lash), they are safe and will not ruin the health of your natural lashes.

4. Does it hurt?

No, eyelash extensions are painless. Most clients feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the procedure.

5. Do I need to make an appointment?

Yes, appointments are required as we cannot guarantee accommodation for walk-ins. Please schedule an appointment and honor your appointment time to avoid long waits and to ensure quality lash application.

6. What do I need to do before my appointment?

Please arrive with no mascara on. 

7. How long do eyelash extensions last?

Eyelash extensions last 2-5 weeks on average depending on a number of factors such as aftercare, hair quality, weather, etc. 

8. Can I still wear makeup/mascara?

We do not recommend wearing mascara since it is very difficult to remove from the extensions without pulling at your natural eyelashes. Please use oil-free cosmetics when removing makeup close to the eye area while wearing eyelash extensions.

9. What are the lash extensions made of?

The lashes I use are synthetic (silk and faux mink). I do not use real human or animal hair to limit the risk of allergic reaction often found when using these types of lashes.

10. Can I use an eyelash curler to curl my lash extensions?

No, an eyelash curler will break the bond on your extensions and will damage your natural eyelashes.

11. Will I lose my own lashes?

No, as long as you refrain from rubbing your eyes or tugging at the extensions you will not lose your own lashes.

12. Can you create a custom look for me ?

Most Definitely! We carry a variety of different lash curls, lengths, and thicknesses to custom fit your lash needs.

13. What type of adhesive do we use?

We only use medical-grade adhesive solely made for professional eyelash extensions. Our adhesive is formaldehyde-free, contains butyl cyanoacrylate (for fast bonding), poly alkyl methacrylate (for extra hold) and poly isocyanate pigment (for mascara-like color).

14. When do I have to get them retouched?

We recommend clients come in for touch ups every 2-3 weeks. Clients who prefer to maintain a very full look come in on a weekly basis.

15. Why do I need to cleanse my lashes?

Dirty eyelids and lashes will breakdown the adhesive bond between the natural lash and the extension due to oil build-up. This will lead to premature lash shedding and you needing a fill sooner than necessary. Even worse dirty lashes can hold bacteria which can lead to eye infections.
