FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO THEY HURT?
Eyelash extensions should not hurt or cause discomfort when applied correctly. It is important to go to a trusted lash artist who was certified through a reputable course as this will ensure that they are applying the correct weight and length of lashes to your natural lash, so as not to damage them.
WILL MY NATURAL LASHES BE DAMAGED?
When applied correctly, eyelash extensions do not damage your natural lash. One extension will be applied to your natural lash for a classic look or fans will be applied for a volume look; the technician will apply the appropriate weight and length to ensure the integrity of your natural lash. The lash adhesive will not irritate the eyes nor damage the natural lash; it is created specifically for human lashes and is formaldehyde free.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
Most eyelash extension adhesives have a bond time of anywhere from 4-8 weeks therefore, they will only last as long as your natural lash does. Like all hair on the human body, your eyelashes grow in stages. It is normal to lose 1-4 natural lashes per day which is why a fill is recommended every 3-4 weeks. Results vary with each client.
WHAT WILL THE FINAL RESULT LOOK LIKE?
Eyelash extensions can be applied to look anyway that you desire. Typically speaking, eyelash extensions don’t look fake unless that is the look that you are going for.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
After cleaning and priming your lashes, your bottom lashes are protected with an eye pad or medical tape. Lashes are then applied one by one when you are lying down using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue. The procedure is non-invasive and usually takes about 1.5 hours for a refill and 3 hours for a new set. It's very relaxing to the point that many fall asleep.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENT?
Please arrive without any eye makeup as this will minimize cleanup time and allow more time for applying the extensions.
You will need to keep your lashes dry for 24 hours after application so it is a good idea to have your hair washed prior to your appointment.
Please remove contact lenses prior to your appointment for eye safety during the procedure.
Please ensure you are not travelling within 48 hours from a dry to humid climate or a humid to dry climate as this can affect the bonding of the lash glue initially and may cause lashes to fall out more quickly (ie - going somewhere tropical during the winter time here).
Yes - the bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to do all the above. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We recommend however, that you do not wash your eye area for at least 24 hours after the eyelash application. You can use water based mascara if you desire. Do not use oil based or water proof mascara as these can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to fall sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara; only use a water based eye makeup remover.
