What are eyelash extensions?
The application of eyelash extensions is an advanced technique that is used to enhance the length, thickness, and fullness of your natural lashes. They are single strands of a synthetic fiber (we use faux mink), that are curved to replicate a natural lash. There are many different looks that can be achieved with extensions. Before your application, we will discuss the state of your natural lashes, and choose the correct length, thickness, and curl that will create a look that is gorgeous, yet sustainable for long term wear.
What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions give you an instant face lift and make you appear more radiant and youthful! This application will free you of the daily frustration associated with damaging lash curlers and goopy mascara, and will give you an instant boost in confidence. They will make you look and feel gorgeous day and night! The incredibly natural appearance of the eyelash extensions, will leave others wondering what beauty treatment you've had done!
How long do eyelash extensions last?
With proper care and regular touch ups lash extensions can last indefinitely. Each eyelash extension will last for the life span of the natural lash to which it is attached. Each natural lash has it's own growth cycle (just like the hair on your head), so the rate at which you shed your extensions, will depend on your particular cycle. As each natural lash sheds, you will see the extension shed with it. This is why touch ups are necessary. Most clients feel the need to come in every 2-3 weeks in order to maintain the fullness of their initial application. If it has been longer than 4 weeks since your last appointment, you will likely need to book another full set appointment.
Are eyelash extensions safe?
Yes. Eyelash extensions that are applied correctly will not damage your natural lashes. The extensions are applied one by one to each isolated natural lash. So your lashes will grow and shed independently as they naturally would. Careful consideration of the length and volume are very crucial. Extensions that are too long or too heavy for your natural lashes can compromise their health. We always consider the state of your natural lashes and will only apply lashes that are best suited for you.
Can I swim and shower with the extensions?
Yes, this is one of the amazing things about eyelash extensions.They are waterproof! Therefore allowing you to carry on in your regular daily routines such as showering and swimming. Just keep in mind that you will always need to avoid wetting your lashes for a minimum of 24 hours after each application in order to allow the adhesive to cure properly. So just plan accordingly.
What is the eyelash extensions process like?
The extensions will be placed one by one, 1mm from the base of each natural lash. This process is pain free! At Blink Lash Studio, we make this process seem like a relaxing spa service. You will be reclined comfortably with your eyes closed for the entire process. In fact, most of our clients are so relaxed they fall asleep!
What type of adhesive will be used?
Our adhesive is a safe medical grade adhesive that is made specifically for eyelash extension application and never touches the skin. Safety and sanitation is our top priority. We toss and reopen a brand new bottle of adhesive every 4 weeks to ensure that with every application we are using the freshest products possible. It is very important to us to always use safe, top quality application products.
Can I get extensions applied if I have no natural lashes?
No. Since eyelash extensions are applied directly to the natural lash, those without natural lashes are unable to receive this service.
