Eyelash Extensions FAQ
What products do you use for the application of Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions?
We use individual synthetic and faux mink hairs, with a medical grade adhesive for this application. We also use a hydrating gel patches underneath your eyes and an aloe vera based makeup remover whenever needed.
How are the lashes applied?
They are attached strand by strand, directly to each individual natural lash, approximately one millimeter away from your eyelash hair follicle.
What is the difference between Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions and other lash applications?
The main differences between eyelash extensions and other lash applications lie in the long-term health for your natural lashes and quality of the application. Our lashes, rather than being applied on the lash line, are attached directly to your natural lash. No skin contact means no suffocating your follicles, which can prevent prmature shedding and sparse or damaged lashes that you might get from other lash applications. We also attach the extensions one by one, rather than in groups of 3-5, which allows us to be precise in creating a natural and subtle look, rather than an overly dramatic or obviously enhanced look. The looks created with the extensions are endless as the extensions range in thickness, length, curl, and even color.
How long will they last?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with refills. With the proper care and maintenance, touch-ups are needed once every 2 to 3 weeks to replace and maintain the look we have created for you. Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash which has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in, while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day, depending on their individual growth cycles. On shorter natural lashes, this growing and shedding cycle is virtually unnoticeable.
Will lash extensions damage my natural lashes?
No. In fact, lash extensions are kinder to your natural lashes because they eliminate the need for eyelash curlers or mascara, both of which can dry out and even break off your eyelashes. Lash extensions look and feel completely real.
I have no lashes at all. Can I wear Eyelash Extensions?
Because Eyelash Extensions are applied to your existing natural lashes you must have some natural lashes to receive the application. Eyelash Extensions should not, and in many cases cannot be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or suffer from Trichotillomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.
