Lash FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions is the art form in which one follicle of synthetic hair is attached to each of your natural lashes one lash at a time.  They are secured with a medical grade adhesive, which extends the length of your natural eyelashes.

How long is the process?
The initial appointment can range anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours; depending on how many natural lashes you have.

 A refill can take anywhere from .5 to 1.5 hours depending on the length of time between your visits.

How should I prepare for my appointment?
The best way to prepare for you eyelash extension appointment is to come with a clean face.  It is strongly advised that your face is free of ALL make up and oils.  No mascara, no eyeliner and no moisturizer. Should you arrive at your appointment with any of the aforementioned on your face, you will need to reschedule your appointment.  Those items have the tendency to interfere with the adhesive functioning properly during the application process.

What kind of adhesive is used?
A medical grade adhesive which was specially developed by doctors and scientists for the safe application of eyelash extensions.

How long will my eyelash extensions last?
The natural process of shedding causes us to lose anywhere from 2 to 5 eyelashes per day.  With that being said, if properly cared for your eyelash extensions should lash during the life span of your natural lashes.  In the natural process of you losing your eyelashes during shedding, you will lose your extension as well. Generally it is advised that you get a refill anywhere between 1.5 to 3 weeks.

Can I use mascara?
I don’t recommend wearing mascara with eyelash extensions.  However, should you still desire to wear mascara; I STRONGLY RECOMMEND  a water based mascara in particular mascara which is made specifically for eyelash extensions.  It is imperative that you keep oil based products away from your eyes while wearing eyelash extensions.  If you must use oil products, use something that is not harsh and will destroy the adhesive.  (Baby oil and olive oil are safe; just use in moderation)
