The Application Process
Prior to the application, your stylist will conduct a thorough consultation allowing you the opportunity to help design your customized lash look. In addition, your stylist may ask questions about your health and lifestyle to ensure Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are right for you.
During your Eyelash Extension application, you will comfortably recline with your eyes closed. The application of Eyelash Extensions is painless and wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating. Clients typically fall asleep then awaken to longer, thicker, darker and more voluminous lashes.
During the application of your Eyelash Extensions, your stylist will isolate an individual natural lash, then; he/she will expertly bond one eyelash extension to one natural lash. This technique creates a seamless look and feel as if these eyelash extensions were your own.
To ensure your safety during and after the procedure, eyelash extensions are never applied to your skin; your Eyelash Extensions are attached only to your natural lashes.
Additionally, your Eyelash Extensions are adhered to your natural lash using our safe and proprietary line of Adhesives.
Frequently Asked Questions
At The iLash Studio, we know that getting lashes for the first time can make you nervous. We hope that this information will put you to ease in knowing that we are skilled, experienced and talented technicians. Here are a few of the most asked questions. If you don’t see your question here, please ask.
What are semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
They are synthetic individual eyelashes and come in different lengths, thickness, and degrees of curl. They will give you a fuller, darker lash line wthout the need of mascara. You won’t feel you are wearing them, and no one will be able to tell that you weren’t born with them.
They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes.
What are the benefits of eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions instantly give you sexier, younger and refreshed-looking eyes. You will wake up looking lusciously lashed and find that you have a lower-maintenance beauty routine, as you will no longer need to curl and apply coats of mascara. Extensions can even protect your own lashes from the damage caused by curling and mascara application.
What is the process? What about maintenance?
The application process is very relaxing – like receiving a spa service. In fact, most clients take a nap during their procedure. You lie down on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. Your technician will glue one synthetic lash extension to one of your natural lashes with medical grade glue. Your initial Full Set of Classic Lashes will take around 120 minutes, Full Set of Volume Lashes will take around 150 minutes, and ReLashes can be done in as little as 60 minutes.
What are Volume Lashes?
Volume Lashes is a lash technique that uses multiple revolutionary thin lashes applied to a natural lash to create a fuller lash line. “Lash fans” are expertly created during the lash application using 2-4 thinner lashes. Each fan weighs less than the thickness of one thicker, traditional lash.
Your Lash Stylist will determine how many lashes can be used in each fan depending on your natural lash thickness and length. Each fan is still applied to only one natural lash. The result is a fluffy full lash line that creates more volume. No mascara should be used on volume fans.
When your natural lash sheds, the extension will fall out with that lash?
To maintain a full appearance, it is recommended to get a ReLash every 2-3 weeks, with the average being 2 weeks.
Though eyelash extensions are easy to maintain, the first 3 hours are crucial for a strong bond. You should keep your lashes dry and avoid touching them. Basic makeup application and normal lifestyle can resume after the eyelash application. However, the following activities should be avoided within the first 3 hours:
Spray or airbrush tanning
Exposure to excessive steam
Exposure to excessive heat
Contact lenses insertion
Non Xtreme Lashes cosmetics and skincare products
The following activities may weaken the adhesive bond and result in premature eyelash extension loss, and therefore should be avoided:
Excessive exposure to friction
Excessive use of oil-based eye care products on or near your eyelashes, such as eye creams, Vaseline, and cleansers.
Use of waterproof cosmetic products on or near the lashes, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner
Excessive mascara application
Use of mechanical or heated curlers
Picking or pulling on your eyelashes
Excessively rubbing your eyes
Chemical treatments, such as eyelash tinting or perming
To prevent damage to your eyelash extensions, care should be taken when recieving any of the following procedures:
Strong chemical peels or skin resurfacing
Facial treatments and facial massages
Note: Always advise your esthetician or medical provider that you are wearing eyelash extensions before any facial procedure begins.
Your Lash Stylist will give you a detailed, easy care maintenance instruction manual following your procedure. Be gentle with your lashes; do not pull on the extensions or rub the eyes excessively.
Ask your lash stylist about the Xtreme Lashes® water-based mascara and Xtreme Eye Makeup Remover, specially formulated for eyelash extensions. Do not apply waterproof mascara to extensions.
How do I prepare for my new lashes?
To ensure long-lasting Eyelash Extensiona and a comfortable and relaxing experience, prepare for your application by following these easy pre-application instructions:
Remove all eye makeup, including eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, eye creams and eye serums.
Cleanse eye area and eyelashes gently, but thoroughly to remove any residual oils or mascara.
Shower before your arrival.
Do not wear contacts to your appointment. Wear glasses instead.
Do not curl your eyelashes on the day of lash appointment.
Do not apply heavy creams, lotions or oils to your face within 48 hours prior to your eyelash application.
Do not recieve chemical treatments to your eyelashes, such as tinting or perming, within 48 hours to your appointment.
Ensure you have fully recovered from any recent irritating eye area treatments. Recovery time varies with each procedure and individual.
How do I take care of my new lashes?
Taking care of your new lashes should be easy. You can continue with your normal routine but still remember to be gentle on your lashes and avoid oil based products. This includes night creams, oil based makeup remover, and non oil-free moisturizer.
Our Lash Guarantee is only upheld with the purchase and proper use of Xtreme Lashes® after care products, and by properly following all aftercare instructions.
If for some reason you want your lashes to be removed, please make an appointment. Lash Extensions can be professionally removed by a Lash Stylist using specially formulated adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes for a full set. Never try to remove Lash Extensions on your own. Damage can be caused by pulling the extensions off with the natural lash, removing the natural lash before it is ready to shed.
Do extensions harm my natural lashes?
There has been a lot of misrepresentation about this, but the answer is no, with proper application.
Eyelash extensions cause no damage to the natural lashes. Our adhesives have been developed to exacting specifications. Our top priority was ensuring a thoroughly safe product so we chose to carry Xtreme Lashes® because they follow the standards set by the US Medical Industry and top US Surgeons. The main ingredient in both our adhesives is the same ingredient used for suture-less wound closure. These adhesives are the perfect blend of safety, longevity, flexibility and strength.
Why should I choose The iLash Studio for Lash Extensions?
Applying extensions is a highly technical and skilled procedure. A bad extension job can be painful and damage your lashes. Unlike some of our competition, our technicians train for weeks, are held to strict quality-control standards, and use the safest products. Our combination of great skill and excellent products will show in the longetivity and the beautiful, natural appearance and feel of your lashes.
Lashes should be attached to one lash only and clumps or build up of glue should not be seen. This improper lash application can result in premature lash loss and can impair future lash growth.
What if I have lashes from another salon?
Your stylist will assess the health of your natural lashes and the extensions applied. We do not require you to remove all of your extensions to be able to be lashed by The iLash Studio. However, in our years of experience, many clients that come from other lash salons have significant lash damage and need to have their extensions removed. It is our policy to use as many of your existing extensions as possible without compromising the health of your natural lashes.
What is Lash Rehab?
Lash Rehab is what we call the process of getting your natural lashes healthy again after having damaging extensions applied. Each rehab plan is customized to the amount of damage you have, the condition of your natural lashes and the desired look you are trying to achieve. Lash Rehab usually always includes the use of Amplifeye, an all natural lash growth enhancer, to help speed the healing process. Rehab time is accelerated when a client goes lash free for a certain amount of time.
