Frequently Asked Questions
What are eyelash extensions?
Xtreme Lashes® Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions are natural-looking, synthetic eyelashes applied one by one to each individual natural lash.
Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions were developed to mimic your natural lashes; its design features a tapered tip with a thicker base to resemble the look and feel of a natural lash. The luxurious natural look of Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions is achieved by a meticulous and artful application of synthetic lashes, all applied one by one to your natural lash by a certified Xtreme Lashes® Lash Stylist.
Will the Extension harm my natural lashes?
When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The application technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions. This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process so each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle
What is the proper way to care for my lashes after my appointment?
Nightly conditioning is necessary to maximize the life of the extensions. Angelic Lash's nighttime conditioning/cleansing pads are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility. Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is also recommended. You wouldn’t leave a hair salon without top of the line hair products – same with your lashes!
Can mascara be worn with Extensions?
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. Use a glycol and carbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive
Following these important after-care instructions will aid in extending the life of your eyelash extensions. The first 48 hours following your application are most crucial. Care must be taken not to rub your eyes, pull your lashes, or scratch. Also, any creams, eye makeup removers, lotions, or cleansers containing oils can loosen the bond of the eyelash extensions. Care must be taken to apply eye cream sparingly with avoidance of the lash line area. In the shower, you should avoid direct water spray on your extensions.
Do not allow use of a steam bath, swim, or wash your face directly with hot water during your initial 24 hours of the application.
Eyelash extensions will curl your natural lashes. It is not recommended to use an eyelash curler. As a result, it may break both the lash extensions and your natural lashes.
Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face. Gently clean around the eyes with a wash cloth or fingers.
Do not pull on your lash extensions. This bad habit may take out your own natural lash as well as your eyelash extension
Avoid pulling on the eyelash extensions, even the occasional loose ones. Contact us to make an appointment to have them replaced.
As your natural lashes fall out due to the growth cycle, you will need refills approximately every 3 weeks for best results as your new lashes grow in. As your natural lashes become accustomed to the extensions, and with a little practice maintaining the lashes, the time between refills can be extended.
AVOID RUBBING, PULLING, AND/OR TOUCHING YOUR LASH EXTENSIONS!!.
