QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Can I use Mascara on my extensions? For those dye hard fans the answer is "It is NOT recommended". It will shorten or destroy the life of the extensions and we are not responsible for the effects of mascara application. You will not need to use mascara with these extensions.
Most mascaras are petroleum based, will break down the bonding agent of the extensions, and dramatically shorten their lives. Because your bottom lashes touch your top lashes when the eye is closed, we recommend not using your normal mascara on your bottom lashes as well. The goal is to go mascara-less.
I sleep on my stomach. Will this affect my lashes? If you sleep on your stomach, or sleep with a pillow or blanket over your head, or cover your eyes with sleeping mask, the longevity of your lashes will be greatly diminished. Side sleepers will notice that the eye that is on the side they sleep on will loose lashes a bit more than the side that is up. This is normal.
How long my lashes last? With proper care, your lash extensions will last as long as your own lash. The life cycle of natural lashes is about 10 to 12 weeks. In order for us to successfully bond a lash to your own lash however; we must target a lash that is long enough to support the length of the extension. Typically these lashes are about 5 to 6 weeks old and are close to full maturity. This leaves you with about 4 to 6 weeks of wear before the last lash falls off. Since your own lashes fall off at different intervals, your extensions will slowly be shed off with the natural lash over the 4 to 6 week period. It is natural to lose old lashes, so you will lose some. Because of this, touch ups are recommended about every 2 weeks to maintain the fullness of lush lashes. It’s like caring for your shellac, acrylic or gel nails. Keep them up!
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe? Currently the FDA does not regulate eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. The primary ingredient in our adhesive is the same ingredient used by plastic surgeons in the U.S. for suture-less wound closure. The application process is pain-free and relaxing. In fact, many clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified technician can cause damage to your eyes and eyelids. Do not trust your eyes to just any spa or technician. Great EyeLash Extensions are the result of a great amount of research and are the absolute longest lasting and best quality available.
