Extensions are a sustainable option that can change your face and eliminate false lashes forever. However, on the other hand, you will have some questions before the beautician glues some foreign material to your delicate eyelids.

What is eyelash extension?

Eyelash extensions are synthetic fibers that are attached to natural eyelashes with a special adhesive. They come in different sizes from 6mm to 18mm with different widths and curvature options. When properly placed, eyelash extensions can make your eyes look bigger and more refined. With proper care, eyelash extensions will last up to five to six weeks.

Falling lashes! Will all my lashes fall out?

The lash extensions will gradually fall out along with your lashes, which normally completely renew themselves within six to eight weeks. Proper care is the only way to prolong the life of your eyelashes and, accordingly, artificial ones.

Will they damage my natural lashes?

I made an appointment with a specialist. How can I prepare?

We recommend that you do not wear mascara or use oil-based eye makeup. This will help the glue adhere better and make the application process much smoother.

How long does the process take?

The initial meeting can take anywhere from two to three hours, depending on the style and scope desired.

What about scary stories? Is there a risk of blindness?
It is extremely important to prevent the glue from getting into your eyes. This usually does not happen as your eyes remain closed during the procedure.

It is also recommended to avoid fumes and keep lashes moist for the first 48 hours. Of course, you can wash your face and take a shower, just make sure you don’t get water directly on your lashes.

Can I use mascara for eyelash extensions?
One of the biggest benefits of eyelash extensions is that you no longer need mascara. The use of mascara is not recommended as it is difficult to remove and the adhesive may break during the removal process. If you do have to use mascara, try wearing it only on your lower lashes or on the edges of your extensions and avoid waterproof mascara.

Also, only use cleaners specifically formulated for eyelash extensions. Other products may contain ingredients that can weaken the grip and cause premature falls! You don’t want this.

How often will you need eyelash extensions?

You don’t need to remove the lashes and reinstall them from scratch. Natural eyelashes grow and fall out with the natural hair cycle. Eyelash care is recommended every three to four weeks to keep your lashes thick and defined.

And a few tips…

You must be careful with your eyelashes. NEVER use eyelash scissors. If your extensions are starting to fall off, it’s time for a visit to a specialist.
