What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are synthetic lashes ranging in length from 6mm to 17mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent, surgical grade glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. However, there is always a possibility of an allergic reaction to the glue.
How are they applied?
The eyelash extensions are applied by separating your natural lashes and applying one or more extensions to one of your natural lashes at a time, while your eyes remain closed. Your bottom lashes will be covered with surgical tape or gel eyepads to keep any glue or lashes from coming in contact with them.
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and they must be maintained by getting "fill-ins" every 1-3 weeks. The longer you go between Fill-ins, the less lashes you will have and the longer the fill in will take. After 3-4 weeks, the technician will apply a whole new set.
Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts may only want to apply a certain length or thickness of lashes, and this is to keep your real lashes healthy and to prevent the new extensions from weighing them down. Applying too long of extensions to someone with very short, weak, lashes can make the lashes look messy and be harder to take care of.
What happens if glue gets in your eyes?
Since your eyes are shut the whole time lash extensions are being applied, glue will not get into your eyes.
Can you go blind?
No. Your eyelash technician is highly trained in application and safety of eyelash extensions. In the rare event that you do have an allergic reaction to the eyelash adhesive, it can be treated by a doctor with specific eye drops.
What happens when you cry?
If you experience any burning or discomfort during the procedure, causing your eyes to tear or making you cry, please let the technician know immediately. The application of extensions should be a completely pain-free experience.
