What are infills?
Infills replace lash extensions that fall our due to wear-and-tear and your natural lash fall. We perform infills ONLY for our existing clients. That means, once we have done a full set of lashes for you, you are eligible for infills.
Following the initial application of Eyelash Extensions, with proper care and maintenance, if you were looking to maintain that “full look” infills are typically only needed once every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. This is the application of individual Eyelash Extensions to fill in spaces in your lash line where your natural lashes have shed. Please note we will not provide infill’s for Eyelash Extensions done by another salon without first seeing the standard of work of your Eyelash Extensions. PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT PERFORM INFILLS FOR OTHER SALONS.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa?
Yes. The lashes specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free whilst you have Eyelash Extensions. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. However, please make sure not to swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure.
Can I apply mascara to my Eyelash Extensions?
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Eyelash Extensions does never need mascara again. However, if you must have the mascara look, only water based mascara can be used. Do not use oil-based or waterproof mascara.
Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause Eyelash Extensions to fall off your natural lashes.
What do I do if I want them removed?
We maintain a very high standard of work and therefore we are usually only asked to remove the work done from another salon, or toward the end of the Eyelash Extensions to remove a few remaining lashes. As the natural lashes cycle out, Eyelash Extensions will shed with them. However, if necessary, Eyelash Extensions can be removed using a specially formulated adhesive remover. Never try to remove Eyelash 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. This removal process generally takes approximately 30 minutes however can vary depending on the amount of adhesive we need to breakdown.
I have no lashes at all, can I wear Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are applied to existing natural lashes and you must have some natural lashes to receive the procedure. Eyelash Extensions should not, and in many cases cannot, be applied to clients who have alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from trichotilomania, unless and until the individual has received effective treatment and normal lash growth has resumed.
