Before Your Appointment
What are eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions enhance the length, thickness and fullness of natural lashes. They are semi-permanent, synthetic lashes that provide length and thickness to your own lashes. Eyelash Extensions are available in varying lengths, curls and thicknesses, They are customizable and will give you longer, thicker and very natural looking eyelashes.
How long does it take?
After a thorough consultation a Classic full set of lash Extensions can take up to 2 hours. A Classic Half set is approximately 1 hour.
What kind of lashes do you use?
At Lash Addicted we use only synthetic Mink lashes that are hypoallergenic, have deep, rich black finish and are extremely light weight. They are applied with sensitive medical grade adhesive specially designed for lash extensions.
How are they applied?
Eyelash Extensions are applied one extension to every one natural lash. Classic lashes result in 90-120 eyelash extensions per eye.
How long do they last?
Eyelash extensions can last up to 4-6 weeks from the time of application. The life of your lashes extensions depends on your growth cycle, how well you take care of them and your type of lifestyle. A regular maintenance program of every 2-4 weeks is highly recommended.
Remove all eye make-up and clean your lashes with a mild, oil-free cleanser. Do NOT use oil-based make up removers or eye creams. Lashes must be clean for the adhesive to bond completely.
Contact lenses must be removed before prior to the treatment. Please bring a case and solution to store them in.
Please follow these guidelines to help keep your eyelash extensions looking beautiful!
Avoid getting your lashes wet for at least 48 hours after each application.
Avoid extreme heat, swimming, steam rooms and hot saunas for 48 hours after application.
Do not use an eyelash curler on the lash extensions or try to perm or tint them. This will break the bond on the extensions and might damage your natural lashes.
Do not use oil-based products (oil-based eye makeup, makeup remover, moisturizer, cleanser, sunscreen) on or near your lashes. Use products of non-oily, non-creamy formulas to remove eye makeup. Oil-based makeup products will dissolve the adhesive on the eyelash extensions and will cause your extensions to fall out sooner than expected.
Avoid rubbing your eyes roughly when cleaning your face and avoid running water directly on your lashes.
