About Lash Extensions
What are lash extensions?

Weightless, comfortable, and easy to maintain, semi-permanent eyelash extensions are comprised of single or multiple strands of synthetic eyelashes which are resemble the look and texture of a natural lash. One by one, a single or multiple lash strand is methodically applied to a single isolated natural eyelash creating a longer, fuller and darker lash look. There are many varied lengths, thicknesses, lash curvatures and colors to choose from—all of which can be customized specifically for your eyes.

Why get them?

Eyelash extensions are for anyone desiring a more youthful transformation (after a relaxing appointment) resulting with longer, fuller, darker, and more eye catching lashes. You can wake up each day with beautiful eyes with little or no need to adjust to your lifestyle. They are ideal for everyday wear and special occasions (wedding, honeymoon, vacations, etc) because you can sleep, shower, swim and spa worry-free.

How Long do they last?

With proper care and maintenance, eyelash extensions can last up to 2 months as your natural eyelash is shed. (Natural eyelashes grow and shed typically about 60 days.) A full lash look can last indefinitely with routine relash or refill appointments. These touch-ups are typically needed once every 2 to 3 weeks in order to maintain the fullest look since most eyelashes naturally shed 1 to 5 lashes a day depending on your natural growth cycle.

Applying lashes: Why you need a professional?

Eyelash extensions are safe when serviced by a licensed professional who is properly trained, certified and uses the right products. Xtreme Lashes products are developed to the highest standards of safety, and stylists are credentialed health and beauty professionals who have successfully completed the most rigorous comprehensive hands on training and evaluation available in the field. possible.

How do I prepare for an application?

It is best to come prepared for relaxation and able to close your eyes during appointment. Do not curl your lashes the day of your appointment. Do not tint, perm or treat your eyelashes with any chemical treatment 24 hours prior to appointment. Do not apply heavy moisturizers, lotions, or facial oils to our face 24 hours prior and ensure your eyelashes and eyes are make-up-free, clean and dry. If you are a contact lens wearer, remove your contacts prior to the application and bring your prescription glasses to wear during the first 3 hours after the application. Make sure your eyes are free from signs and symptoms of infection and fully recovered from any recent eye surgeries. Make sure do not have any allergies to acrylates or cyanoacrylate adhesives. Avoid any exposure to any moisture or skincare for first 3 hours after the application.

Depending on the number of eyelash extensions and type of set applied, a full set properly placed (approx. 70-400 lashes per eye) may take 1 to 3 hours. The number of extensions depends on how many natural lashes you have on each eye and their health and condition. Relashes or lash refills, may be scheduled every 2 to 3 weeks after initial setting and can take 1 to 2 hours. Your lash experience is the perfect midday beauty rest. During the procedure you lay with your eyes closed on a comfortable plush luxurious bed while enjoying aromatherapy and relaxing music. Its so relaxing, don't be surprised if you dose off.
