Preparing for treatments is just as important as the after care. Eyelash Extensions are a great way to cut down on your daily routine and can even save you money – with regular refills you will never need to buy or use curlers or mascara ever again!
Did you know?
- The glue adhesive used lasts for approx 6-8 weeks with proper care. However, because our lashes are hair and in a continuous state of growth, your lashes naturally shed and new hair grows in it’s place. This is why refills are recommended every 2-4 weeks.
- Your natural lashes shed all the time – every day! While we try to make sure an extension is applied to every lash, you may notice some fall out a few days later. These lashes most likely were ready to fall out on their own. There is no way for us to tell which lashes are near the end of their cycle, there for extension loss along with lost natural lashes are natural and common.
- On average a refill is only needed every 3-4 weeks! You may wish to fill in gaps even earlier, however. Our prices reflect how many are left, not how long it has been since your last fill.
This way you can decide how often you’d like to come in.
Preparing for your Eyelash Extensions
- Showering and washing your face before your appointment is recommended. We do provide oil-free make-up remover but please arrive with a freshly cleansed face to save time!
- Remove contacts. Your eyes will be closed for 1-2 hours so this is to help with comfort. You can put your contacts back in immediately after your appointment.
- Remove makeup and lotion. We want the adhesive to stick to squeeky clean lashes. NOT on top of dirt, oil and makeup built up along your lash line.
After-Care for your lashes
- Do not let any water touch your lashes for the first 48-72 hours! While the lash results are immediate, the glue takes time to “cure”. Heat, water and excessive rubbing may cause premature lash loss.
- Keep your eyelids and t-zone SWEAT FREE. As sweat drips down our face during the day, our lashes are the victims. This build up can be prevented by cleansing your eyelids and forehead morning and night, using a mattifying lotion or spray and/or using a setting spray such as Urban Decay (cover lashes with one hand while misting the forehead, brows, and eyelid area)
- Oil-Free (Water Based) cleansers and make up removers should only be used on your eyes from now on. Avoid water-proof liners and make up that requires oil-based removers.
- Do not use cotton products on your new lashes. Fibres from Q-Tips or Cosmetic Pads can get tangled in the lashes causing annoying irritation which will cause you to rub your eyes. DO NOT RUB your lashes!
- Water-Based Mascaras only on lower lashes!
- Do NOT curl your lashes with a manual wand. Use a heated eye-lash curler to gently lift your lashes if needed.
- Avoid getting lotions, creams or any oils on your lashes! Oils on the eye lid may drip down to you lash line area. Be careful of this!
- Avoid rubbing your lashes or sleeping on your stomach. Pressure from contact on your pillow can cause pre mature lash loss and fraying.
