| Frequently Asked Questions|
During the treatment, synthetic individual eyelashes are applied to your own natural lashes to create a thicker, fuller look. One extension is applied to one isolated natural lash in a manner that does not inhibit or damage the natural growth patterns of your own eyelashes.
How long does the procedure take?
The application of a full set can take 1.5 - 2.5 hours.
How long do they last?
Natural eyelashes grow and shed daily, with the average person losing 2-4 natural lashes per eye, per day. This means that if you wish to keep your eyelash extensions looking their best, then maintenance infills are required every 2-3 weeks.
If you choose to have your set for a special occasion only, then you can let them fall out naturally, over the course of 3-5 weeks.
Are they easy to maintain?
Yes, however you do have to treat them with a little care and clean them regularly. You can still wear eye makeup, but you must not apply mascara to the extensions or use any form of liquid or gel eyeliner to the upper eyelid. These products will break down the lash glue, saturating the extensions and causing them to stick together, and will cause damage. Mascara and eyeliner cannot be cleaned from the extensions without damage, and can lead to bacterial infections.
How should you safely clean your eyelash extensions?
You will need to use an oil and alcohol free eye make-up remover on your lashes as these ingredients will weaken the adhesive bond.
To clean the lashes, use an oil free foaming cleanser, using a little and mixing with warm water on the sides of fingers, clean down over the eyelid and lashes in an upward,downward motion, never side to side. Never tug or pull at the extensions as you could lose them and are likely to damage your natural lashes. Avoid wiping with cotton wool pads or buds as the fibres will catch.You will be given a lash brush and we recommend you brush lashes daily to keep them neat and tidy.
Just remember, whenever you brush your hair, give your eyelashes a little combing too.
