What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic mink eyelash’s that are attached to your natural eyelashes strand by strand. Eyelash extensions are very different from “individual” or “strip” lashes. This method does not damage the lash or stop your natural lash from growing. The extensions come in different lengths, & width.
What are the benefits of eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions will give you a longer, thicker, fuller & darker eyelash. You can ditch your eyelash curler and mascara and still wake up every morning batting your lashes. The lashes are water resistant, weightless, and they give you a very natural look. Your eyes will appear to be more open and attractive, giving you a fresher and youthful look.
How long do the eyelash extensions last?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent. They will last up to two months, but in order to maintain a full lash you must come in for a refill appointment. Eyelashes grow just like normal hair, with the exception that the lashes cycle out every 30-60 days. The semi-permanent eyelash will shed with the cycle of your natural lashes.
Are the eyelash extensions safe? Will they damage my natural lashes?
When your eyelash extensions are applied by a trained Mink Eyelash Extension Specialist they are completely safe and harmless. In fact, they grow, rest and shed right along with the natural eyelash to which they were applied, so there is no damage to neighboring eyelashes.
What is the eyelash application procedure?
Receiving a full set of eyelash extensions is approximately two-hour procedure. An eyelash refill is approximately one-hour procedure. First, you will fill out a client consultation form and then we will discuss any questions or concerns that you may have. After we have addressed all of your questions you will then lay back and relax on a comfortable massage table while closing your eyes. The Mink Eyelash Specialist will then apply collagen to cover your lower lashes. Falling asleep during the procedure is encouraged and if your twenty-one or older I can even offer you a glass of wine to take the edge off. Then the Mink Eyelash Specialist will start applying the eyelash extensions one at a time to each single eyelash with sanitized tweezers.
What should I do to prepare for my eyelash extension appointment?
To prepare for your appointment please come with no mascara or product on your eyelashes. Also please come on time and if you are going to be late try and call in advance to see if you need to be reschedule. All appointments are booked based on the alloted time for each clients service. (No children are allowed to do the length of the service.)
How do I maintain and take care of my eyelash extensions?
1.) Avoid pulling, touching, picking, or rubbing your lashes at all time.
2.) Do not wash or get eyes wet for 48 hours after your lash application. After 48 hours have passed you will then be able to get your lashes wet but do not drench them.
3.) Sleeping on your side or back is highly recommended.
4.) Do not use oil based eye makeup removers or facial cleansers.
5.) Do not use an eyelash curler. Since your eyelash extensions are already curled and long you will not need to curl your extensions. Eyelash curlers are extremely harsh and will break both your natural lashes and your eyelash extensions.
6.) Use warm water and suggested gel based cleansers to clean your lashes and remove eye makeup. Wipe gently around the eyes without scrubbing and pat dry. Do not use Q-tips or cotton, as remnants will be caught in your lashes.
7.) Occasional short visits to the sauna or steam room is fine however, daily or excessive exposure to steam cause the adhesive to loosen the extension from your natural lash. If this happens it may require more frequent visits to have, your lash re-touched.
