Eyelash Extensions Pre-Appointment
Eyelash extension application is a non-invasive relaxing process where each extension is bonded to one natural lash creating longer thicker fuller eyelashes. For the application you lay on a massage table with your eyes closed for the entire application. Many people find it very relaxing and fall asleep. Eye pads are applied to protect your bottom lids from the pointed tweezers used to isolate the lashes as well as helps to keep the bottom lashes from getting glued. The initial application may take 2-4 hours depending on the style and number of lashes. Refills are recommended every 2-4 weeks depending on how much your natural eyelashes shed, how full you like your lashes, and which style you choose.
Make sure you plan your appointment when you can accommodate the following restrictions:
* DO NOT WEAR mascara or eye makeup including foundation to your appointment.
* DO NOT bring anyone or pets with you to your appointment. If you have children, schedule a appointment when you are able to arrange child care.
* You will not be able to get your face wet or exposed to humidity over 75% for 24 hours after application to allow for the glue to fully cure and strongly bond to your natural lash. Exposure will cause brittle bonding and dramatically reduce the longevity.
* If you plan to have permanent eyeliner done you will need to remove your eyelash extensions prior to the procedure and can re-apply them once you are fully healed.
* Avoid caffeine the day of your session and try not to be stressed out as these things can cause your eyes to flutter making them difficult to lash.
Professional Eyelash Extension glue is used which contains no latex or formaldehyde and is a medical grade glue. The glue bonds the eyelash extension to the natural lash. A small population get Allergic Blepharitis from the glue causing redness and swelling due to fluid build up. This is not normal and if you get a reaction like this then you are not a good candidate for eyelash extensions and should have them removed immediately. This reaction is not painful or permanent.
If you are concerned you may be sensitive to the glue please request a consultation before scheduling an appointment so a lash test can be performed.
This is where 2 lashes are applied to the outer corner lashes at a session PRIOR to your application appointment. If you have severe redness or puffiness within the following 48 hours then you will not be a good candidate for eyelash extensions and they will be removed immediately. If you have no redness, puffiness or irritation then you can proceed with having a full set applied. Please note no medical doctor will review the lash test results unless you seek the opinion of one on your own at your own expense.
The human body is constantly changing and people can develop
an allergic reaction after many years of never having any issues.
If you are going to get eyelash extensions is you must also be committed to keeping them healthy by cleansing them and brushing them (brush provided). Improper care and neglect can lead to bacterial infections like "pink eye". Eyelash extensions do not cause the infection. Not caring for and not cleaning the lashes allows bacteria to grow in them causing infection and can also attract mites!
It takes just 5 minutes a day to keep your lashes clean and healthy.
(See the after care page for more information.)
Eyelash extensions are not recommended for pregnant women because their bodies are changing and they may develop an allergic reaction to the glue. If they do they may not be able to receive medication needed to treat it due to their pregnancy. Also, it can be extremely uncomfortable for pregnant ladies to lie on their backs for 2-4 hours.
If you have any of the following issues you may not be a good candidate for eyelash extensions and should request a consultation before scheduling an appointment for application: Chronic Severe Eye Allergies, Thyroid Problems, Excessive Tearing, Excessive Dry Eyes, Psoriasis, Chronic Blepharitis, Glaucoma, Alopecia, Lupus, Chemotherapy Patients, Chronic Pink Eye, or Latisse User
