All About Eyelashes

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash Extensions are lightweight, silk/synthetic eyelashes that come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses and curl styles. they are expertly bonded individually on a 'lash by lash' basis to your own natural lashes giving you longer, thicker, more luscious looking lashes. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for those tired of mascara, who want thicker longer lashes with little to no fuss required.

What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?

Properly applied Eyelash Extensions will look and feel completely natural, although definitely more full and glamorous than natural lashes.

What does it feel like and how long does it take to apply Eyelash Extensions?

It takes approximately 1-2 hours to apply a complete set of Eyelash Extensions, with slight time variance depending on the amount of natural lashes you have. During this time you will be reclining with your eyes closed, while getting an under eye collagen treatment at the same time. Re-fill treatments take approximately 45min-1 hour. At your appointment a certified lash technician will examine your natural lashes and tailor eyelash extensions to suit your lashes. We are continually undergo product training to keep up with the latest styles and lash types. The treatment process ensures the finishing result is weightless, clump-free, long & beautiful lashes with your natural lashes remaining in good condition.

Eyelash Extensions - Before and After

How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?

Properly applied and maintained Eyelash Extensions will last 6 weeks+, however regular 2 - 3 weekly Re-fill treatments are necessary because your Eyelash Extensions will gradually diminish in number due to the natural shedding and replenishing cycle of your own eyelashes. It's common for your own natural lashes to shed at a rate of 6-10 per week. This will create gaps, which then need filling in. Eyelash Extensions have similar maintenance to acrylic nails, everyone is different with how many weeks between appointments they need depending on lifestyle, aftercare, lash cycle & time demands.

My eyes are very sensitive; can I still have Eyelash Extensions?

Yes. As the Eyelash Extensions do not touch the skin in anyway the chance of an allergic reaction is reduced dramatically. Also, the glue we use has no fumes and quick drying time and is approved by Health Canada ensuring you do not experience discomfort during the procedure.

Aftercare

IMPORTANT!
For the first 24 hours do not wet your lashes.
Washing your face in the basin rather than in the shower makes it a lot easier to keep your lashes dry. Aim the shower nozzle away from your face, no higher than your chin, to avoid splashes & reduce the temperature to warm to avoid excess steam. Goggles can be used, and are recommended.
Keep away from Steam & Excessive sweating
eg. ovens, hot yoga, saunas, high impact gym work and spa pools.
