What ARE eyelash extensions?



What are eyelash extensions? 

The best thing since sliced bread...No, seriously.  Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic eyelashes applied one by one to your natural lashes.

How long do they last?

The truth is every person is different and there are many factors that effect lash longevity.  However, most people need a fill every two to four weeks.  

How do you attach them?

I use Xtreme Lashes® brand adhesive and lashes.  The adhesive is medical grade, hypoallergenic with exceptionally low fume and odor, manufactured to ISO 13485:2003 Quality Management Standards, made in the USA at an FDA-registered facility 

I wear contacts, can I wear lash extensions?

Yes, but...you cannot wear them to your appointment and you cannot put them in for three hours after your appointment.

How long can you make my lashes look?

That is different for each person.  I take great care to make sure I don't damage your natural lashes.  The health, length and thickness of your natural lashes will determine how long we can go with extensions.

What should I expect at my appointment?

You should plan to be reclined and relaxed, laying still with your eyes closed for 120-150 minutes.  

Can I have them on my bottom lashes?

No, I only apply lashes to the top lashes.  Extreme Lashes® has a wonderful mascara if you want to apply it to your lower lashes.

Can I swim with lash extensions?

Absolutely, but not for three hours after you have them applied.  Also be aware that lots of swimming could effect longevity.

How do I figure out if they are for me?

Give me a call.  We can talk about.
