Eye Lash Extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions is technique for thicker, longer, and naturally abundant looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of an individual synthetic eyelash directly attached to the natural eyelash with a specially formulated bonding agent.

What to Expect

Before the Procedure:

​​

Avoid wearing eye makeup to your eyelash appointment. Remove mascara, eyeliner, and other eye makeup before- hand. Although the lash stylist will have eye cleanser on hand, removing eye makeup can be time-consuming and take away from your lash extension application time. Also, avoid curling your lashes ─come with your lashes in their natural state.

Bring a contact lens case and saline solution to your appointment, if you wear contact lenses. As a safety precaution you will be required to remove your lenses before the lashes are applied. Wearing contact lenses while getting lash extensions is a safety issue and may be uncomfortable. After the lashes are applied, you can put your contact lenses back in, or if more convenient, just wear glasses to your appointment.

After Care:

AVOID USING OIL-BASED PRODUCTS, such as Vaseline, oil based eye creams, eye serums, and cleansers. Read product labels to ensure that the products you are using are “oil-free”. Over time some extension may begin to separate from the natural lash and the use of oil-based products (both natural and synthetic) can make their way causing the extension to separate more quickly. Important caution: Please do not intentionally use an oil based product to remove your extensions, as extensions need to be professionally removed. Oil does not dissolve the adhesive bond and removing your own extensions may cause damage.

WAIT AT LEAST 24 HOURS, before getting your lashes wet. This includes showering, splashing water on your face, visits to the sauna/steam room, swimming, crying, and sweating during exercise.

KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF YOUR LASHES, no matter how bad you want to touch them. Don’t rub, pick or pull your lashes to avoid permanent damage to your natural eyelash. Just as plucking your eyebrow hair can cause damage to the root causing it to not grow back the same is true for eyelashes.

USE WATER-WASHABLE MASCARA instead of waterproof mascara. Although mascara is not needed after getting lash extensions, if you want to use it, gently apply water-based mascara only to the tips of your lash extensions.
 

CLEANSE YOUR EYES with Lavish Lashes® Gentle Eyelid Cleanser or Guinot Eye Cleansing Gel. Both products are specially formulated for gently removing debris and oils around the eyes to prolong the life of your lashes and encourage their growth. Avoid using cotton swabs when cleansing your lash line. Always use a sponge applicator or a micro swab which can gently sweep across the base of your lashes without leaving behind trace fibers. After using cleansers, or when your lashes are wet from the shower, always pat them dry ─ avoid rubbing them with your towel.

ARE YOU A SIDE SLEEPER? To avoid rubbing your eyes too aggressively on your pillow while sleeping, you may want to consider purchasing a Save My Face Pillow®, which provides support to your neck and head while freeing the space around your eyes to prevent wrinkling and damage to your lashes.

Eyelash extensions add extra weight to your natural eyelash, so any additional weight or stress from perming, curling or tinting should be avoided.
