LASH EXTENSIONS — FAQ
HOW ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED?
Our air-light lash extensions are applied individually, one by one, 1mm away from the eyelid, and never directly on the skin. They are applied to your natural eyelashes using a medical-grade and formaldehyde-free adhesive. Lash extensions come in different lengths, thicknesses, and curls, results can vary from very subtle and natural to very noticeable and dramatic.
WILL I LOSE MY OWN LASHES?
No.We care about the integrity of your lashes. We take every precaution and adhere to proper care, safety and health regulations. We also work with you to maintain proper lash care post application. We take extra care of your eyes, because we care. Lashes like all hair goes through cycles of release, we lose our lashes naturally just being human. Washing your lashes twice a day (morning & night) is highly recommended and as long as you refrain from rubbing your eyes or tugging at the extensions you will not lose your own lashes.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a forty minutes depending on the service received.
ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS BAD OR HARMFUL?
No, eyelash extensions are no worse than applying mascara. The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and will not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes.
DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS FEEL HEAVY?
Our Lash extensions should feel as light as your regular lashes. You shouldn't feel any tugging or a sense of your lashes being weighed down. Mascara weighs more than our extensions.
WHY DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS FALL OUT?
Your lashes fall out naturally during the natural hair regrowth cycle. This is a natural process. It could also mean you have fast hair regrowth. Also over time the adhesive may breaks down due to excessive humidity or other natural causes lash extensions fall off. This is a natural process and could also mean you have fast hair regrowth.
DOES THE LASH EXTENSION PROCEDURE HURT?
Just the opposite… It’s very relaxing. Most clients feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the procedure. At Lashlette, we use superior quality products to bring the highest level of comfort possible for our clients.
DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes, appointments are required as we cannot guarantee accommodation for walk-ins. Please schedule an appointment and honor your appointment time to avoid long waits and to ensure quality lash application.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
Please arrive with no makeup on or around the eye area. When removing makeup around the eyes, use a mild cleanser and avoid using moisturizers, sunscreen, and removers that have oil-based formulas. Lashes must be clean for the adhesive to bond properly.
I WEAR CONTACTS, MAY I WEAR THEM DURING THE PROCEDURE?
We recommend removing your contact lenses before lash application. Eyes may feel dry and irritated with contact lenses kept in during lash application since your eyes must be kept closed for the entirety of the appointment (~1 hour).
MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS WERE DONE AT ANOTHER SALON. CAN I STILL GET THEM DONE?
We require a removal of your existing extensions before applying your lashes here as we do not perform refill services on work that was not done at Lashlette. This is to avoid the risk of mixing different adhesives and/or different materials.
HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically 4-6 weeks. That said, because each person's lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every two to four weeks to maintain a full look.
WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MY EXTENSIONS LAST LONGER?
Wash your lashes and face twice per day. Refrain from steam rooms/saunas/swimming pools for 24 hours. Please no vigorous rubbing of the eyes or tugging at your lashes. Do not use oil-based makeup or makeup removers. Please refer to our LASH CARE section for more information.
CAN I STILL WEAR MAKEUP OR MASCARA?
Majority of our clients choose not to wear mascara because they do not feel it’s needed. There is special mascara to use on your lash extension towards the end of a fill if needed. Wearing mascara required special cleanser to remove it nightly. Please use oil-free cosmetics when removing makeup close to the eye area while wearing eyelash extensions. Please refer to our LASH CARE section for more information.
CAN I STILL WEAR EYELINER WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Liquid, cream, and pencil liners are risky with eyelash extensions. Oil-based liquid eyeliners are not recommended, because oil can weigh down the lashes and result in premature loss of the extensions. ... Pencil liners, when applied, drag along the lash line, which can result in pulling, tugging, and tangling
CAN I USE AN EYELASH CURLER TO CURL MY LASH EXTENSIONS?
No way – please. An eyelash curler will break the bond on your extensions and will damage your natural eyelashes.
WHAT IS THE LENGTH AND THICKNESS OF THE EXTENSIONS THAT ARE USED?
Our lash extensions range from 8mm to 15mm in length, and 0.15mm to 0.25mm in thickness. We handcraft our selection best suited for your style and face shape giving you the results you want naturally. Our difference is founded on enhancing your natural beauty not distracting from it. We design lashes to look like they’re your own, only you will know.
WHAT TYPE OF ADHESIVE DOES LASHLETTE EXTENSIONS USE?
Our lash technicians only use medical-grade adhesive solely made for professional eyelash extensions. Our medical-grade adhesive is formaldehyde-free, contains butyl cyanoacrylate (for fast bonding), and poly isocyanate pigment (for mascara-like color). We do not apply any adhesive to the skin only to the existing lashes. We also provide sensitive glue options for those with allergies as well as providing a saline bath after each treatment.
WHEN DO I HAVE TO GET MY LASH EXTENSIONS RETOUCHED?
We recommend clients come in for touch ups every 2-3 weeks. Clients who do Hot Yoga regularly may want to come in more often.
HOW DO YOU REMOVE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Removals are done at the studio by the lash artist. Do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself, it is best to schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed with a special removing solvent. You may also wait for your natural lash cycle to complete and have the extensions fall off naturally.
HOW DO I SLEEP WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Sleep on Your Back. It's recommended to sleep on your back to avoid any contact with the pillow.
Position Your Pillows. Surround yourself with pillows for support and to prevent rolling on to your side.
Use a Silk Pillowcase.
