Eyelash Extension FAQ
Q1. What is Eyelash Extension?
A1. Eyelash extension is a new procedure that extends the real lash with a new weightless and very natural looking synthetic lash.
Q2. How does the extension performed?
A2. The synthetic lash is applied hair by hair to each of your own lash using a special bonding agent that lasts through the length of your natural growth cycle of each lash, which is between 60 to 100 days.
Q3. Then why do I need to come for retouch every 3 or 4 weeks?
A3. Good question. Normally, not all of your eyelashes fall out at the same time. They replenish gradually day by day. You might loose 1 or 2 lashes each day but when your lashes are short, you don't notice it because they are all pretty much the same length. But when your eyelashes are extended, when some lashes fall off, you notice them right away because now, there is a length difference. Don't worry, when some lashes fall off, there are plenty of new ones that have come out ready for the eyelash technician to refill. That is when you need to come in to be beautified again. Some people like the full look all the time and come in every 2 weeks, some prefer coming in every 3 or 4 weeks. You can come as often as you want depends on your financial and time permit.
Q4. How do I take care of it?
A4. Eyelash extention are easily maintained. Just don't rub your eyes too hard when you clean them. Avoid any oil based cleansers, lotion or make-up remover. Gel cleanser is recommended. Use a small Q-tip to carefully clean the eyeliner around the eye.
Q5. Can I use eyelash curler?
A5. Not recommended because the synthetic lash already come with a very nice curve to it.
Q6. Can I use mascara?
A6. Not recommended because we picked very high quality lash which already comes with a good thickness to it. When you use Mascara, it defeats the purpose of having natural looking lash since it clumps together. Waterproof mascara is definitely not recommended because the cleaning agents will loosen the adhesive. If you insist then only use non-waterproof mascara only on the tips of the lashes. We also offer special coating mascara made for eyelash extensions.
Q7. What do I do before come in for the eyelash appointment?
A7. You should clean your lashes with mild cleanser. Don't use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Don't curl your lash. Don't put on any mascara. Bring your iPod or your favorite music to listen to.
Q8. Is the lash extension glued to my skin?
A8. No, the extension lashes are glued about 1mm away from your skin. Neither the synthetic lash nor the glue ever come in contact with your skin.
Q9. Is the glue odorless?
A9. Absolutely, our glue is odorless. No burning or tearing will occur.
Q10. How do you remove the extension lashes?
A10. There are 2 ways:
- Come and let us professionally remove them with a special remover. Please do not attempt to remove them yourself. The glue is very strong.
- BEST WAY----Let the extension lashes slowly fall out by themselves. Which takes about 2 months.
