What are the Benefits of Eyelash Extensions? As you may have heard already, eyelash extensions can eliminate the need for eye makeup. The thickness and fullness of extensions will make you look and feel gorgeous day and night! One of the biggest benefits associated with wearing eyelash extensions, however, is how it makes mascara obsolete in your make-up regime. Mascara is also a major cause of infection and eye irritation. Accentuate the color and brightness of your eyes.

What are Eyelash Extensions? Eyelash Extensions are a popular and innovative service that lengthens and thickens your own natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single stands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions or for everyday wear.
What do I need to do on the day of my appointment? If possible, please do not wear make-up to your appointment. When removing your eye make-up on the day of your appointment, do not use any oil based removers.
What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied? With proper application,meaningone synthetic eyelash applied to one natural lash, the look and feel is completely natural. No one will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes.
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe? Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the extensions are applied to the natural lash and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain free and so relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. The recommendation is to use only a Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist.
How long will the procedure take and how is it done? The initial application process for lash extensions is 60 to 90 minutes depending on the look you choose. You will lay confortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. The Extensions Specialist will apply soothing under eye gel pads if requested, to cover your lower lashes. The lashes are then applied one by one.
Who can wear Eyelash Extensions? Almost anyone. Eyelash Extensions can be worn by men, women and children at least 12 years of age. This service is an excellent option for those who have lost their lashes due to injury or treatment of an illness(such as cancer). Patients recovering from their cancer treatments can have their lashes back quicker once they have gown back a small ridge of their natural lashes. The possibilities are limitless.
What if I have sensitive eyes? Even if you have sensitive eyes, it is possible to wear eyelash extensions. There are bonding formulas made especially for those whose eyes are more sensitive than others. These adhesives are especially made to medical grade and allow those who might not tolerate regular bonding formulas to receive the lash extension procedure without discomfort. And because each lash extension is bonded to the lash and not the skin of the eyelid, minimal to no contact is made between the adhesive and the skin.
How do I choose the look I want? Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. I consult with all clients to see what look you are interested in. I also determine what your lashes can sustain in regards to size. Each person's lashes will vary in strength and length. I take this into sonsideration when creating a look just for you. The overall look of the lashes is very natural. Please see the service menu to view the different lash set options and applicable cost.
How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions? You will be given a care information sheet at the time of your service. Basically you should not get the lashes wet for 12 hours, use a mild soap (baby shampoo), no mascara and avoid applying oil based cosmetics to the lash extension.
