THE HEALING TIMELINE

DAY 1-2: Brows will appear darker, bolder, and more defined. This can last up to a week as the healing process takes place. A little swelling may occur
 

Day 3-7: Exfoliation begins! Skin will start scabbing and peeling, but don't freak out! Your body is just trying to heal the new wound. Do not itch it or pick at it! Brow color will start to soften and lighten. Color may be lost if your skin has regenerated and naturally exfoliated more.

DAY 7-11: Brows may look like they have disappeared, but the pigment will start to return around days 11-28 when they are becoming fully healed. After 28 days, the skin will regenerate and the pigment that faded will push through again. 

After 6 weeks, come in for your touch-up so we can perfect those brows even more!

AVOID

  • Do not pick at your skin, let the skin fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.

F.A.Q

What are eyelash extensions?


Eyelash Extensions are individual strands of synthetic fibers made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. The single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.




How do I choose the look I want?


Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. The overall look of the lashes can range from very natural to very voluminous! Refer to our services page to get started on lash shapes you may like!




Can I use mascara and eyeliner on my lashes?


Eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed. However, we do have a water-based mascara for purchase for those who feel the need especially nearing time for the next refill. Water-based and felt tip eyeliners are recommended if you'd like to use them!
Do not use eyelash curlers! You run the risk of damaging the eyelash extensions if you crimp them. If you desire a look where your lashes look more curled, we will choose a curl that will meet that requirement.




How often should I come in for a fill?


It is recommended that clients come in every 2-4 weeks to get a refill. if you lose more than 50% of your eyelash extensions, it is considered a new set.




How do I clean my lashes?


For daily cleansing, use a lip gloss applicator/ soft bristled brush and oil free makeup remover to rid the base of your lashes from buildup. For weekly deep cleaning, mix 1 part baby shampoo and 2 parts water together in a foaming bottle pump. Use a lip gloss applicator / soft bristled brush to remove buildup. Do not clean them more than twice a week. Avoid q-tips as the fiber may snag on your extensions!




Can lash extensions damage my eyelashes?


If applied properly, no. Although if your technician applies lashes that are too long or too heavy for your natural lashes, there is a risk they can be damaged. This is why it is so important to seek a licensed esthetician or lash stylist. If you have brittle or dry lashes, it may better to let your eyelashes rest for a while!




How does the lash cycle work?


Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three different phases that occur simultaneously.

  • Anagen is the growth stage where new hair is produced. If you pull out a new lash you will see that the bulb is very thick.
  • Catagen is the transition stage where the hair shaft grows upward and detaches itself from the bulb. The hair follicle will actually shrink. The lower part of the follicle is destroyed and the dermal papilla, which is what nourishes the follicle, breaks away.
  • Telogen is the resting stage. This is where you see lashes on your cheeks or lashes come out on the brush as you comb through your lash extensions. You don’t feel them fall out - this is part of the normal process of the replacement of old hair with new. There is virtually no bulb at the base. It is very normal to have anywhere from 3-5 lashes fall out each day.
