Eyelash Extensions are a process. It takes up to 2 hours or more to complete a full lash set depending on the level of thickness you desire.
Each extension lash is applied one by one to your own natural individual lash using a semi-permanent adhesive.
There are many factors involved in receiving and maintaining your beautiful new lashes. Please realize, this requires a committment to proper care.
Before you receive your lashes, it is important that the area around your eyes is clean and free of cosmetics.
*Please clean your eye area at home with a non oil based cleanser avoiding products containing: P.E.G (polyethylene glycol), propylene glycol or other glycol-based ingredients. These will not allow the lashes to bond properly.
*Do not apply an oil containing moisturizer.
*Do not reapply mascara or curl eyelashes.
*Do not wear contact lenses.
The aftercare of your lashes is critical to the quality of your lashes and length of time they will last.
For the FIRST 24 HOURS you must follow these directions or you will interfere with the bonding process:
* DO NOT not get your lashes wet.
*Avoid steam from sauna or hot shower.
*Do NOT touch your lashes.
Yes, they are beautiful, but do not touch them.
*DO NOT rub them.
*Do NOT wear mascara.
*DO NOT use an eyelash curler.
*DO NOT wash them.
*DO NOT touch them.
*DO NOT wash them.
After 24 hours you may:
*Gently cleanse the eye area. Use the cleaner in the post care kit or a gentle cleanser without: P.E.G (polyethylene glycol), propylene glycol or other glycol-based ingredients. These will not allow the lashes to bond properly.
*DO NOT use water proof mascara. You may use the mascara in the post care kit or your own water based mascara. It is advisable to only use it on the tips. If you extend it to the base, it may interfere with the bond of the adhesive, resulting in the premature loss of your lash extensions.
*DO NOT use a mechanical eyelash curler. You may use a heated eyelash curler if desired.
* Avoid products with P.E.G (polyethylene glycol), propylene glycol or other glycol-based ingredients. These will break down the bond of your lashes.
*Use care when applying eye creams. Be careful to avoid the lash/lid area or the result may be a shorter life span for your lashes.
It is recommended that your have your lashes touched up every 2 - 3 weeks to keep them fresh and full looking.
Some lashes will remain attached up to 2 months, however, due to natural lash loss, you will not have your complete set after this amount of time.
