What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of synthetic hair expertly attached to each individual
eyelash with a specific medical grade adhesive. They are applied to the eyelash itself and are never
in direct contact with your skin. They vary in thickness, curl shape and length. This allows each patient to have the individual look they desire, and it also provides great flexibility for a more dramatic look for special occasions.
While there are many lash options out there, we have done our research and only use the softest, most durable, and highest quality mink lashes available on the market. We want them to last, and we believe quality is key.
Proper application by a highly trained professional will leave everyone wondering “if you were born with those amazing lashes”.
What to Expect
- The procedure will take two hours for the first time, full set application and anywhere from 60 to 75 minutes for a maintenance fill depending on lash care.
- The procedure is non-invasive and completely safe. Lashes are applied to each individual eyelash and never in contact with the skin. You are positioned comfortably in a relaxed, reclined position on the bed and can listen to music, an audio book, or just take a nap.
- When cared for properly, eyelash extensions can last up to four to five weeks. We provide simple instructions and recommend products that will keep your natural lashes healthy and strong.
- On average and depending on your age,your cell renewal factor is every 28 to 60 plus days. We recommend coming in every 3 to 4 weeks for maintenance. This is similar to getting your nails done. Since your natural lashes grow and shed, it is necessary to fill in the new growth to maintain the look of thick full lashes.
- Although mascara is no longer needed,it may still be worn. It must be water based mascara. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. This also applies to removing mascara; you can only use a water based eye makeup remover.
- The medical grade adhesive is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim and exercise. We recommend that you do not get your newly applied lashes wet for 24 hours and avoid hot steam or sauna for 48 hours.
- You may enjoy your lashes for years with regular maintenance or choose to transform your look for a special event, wedding or weekend getaway.
