Eye Lash Extensions are now being offered by The Healing Waters!
Eye lash extensions are a popular new service and product that lengthens and thickens the look of your natural eyelashes. These are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash and are applied to each individual natural lash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions or for day to day wear.
What do eyelash extensions look like when applied?With proper application, meaning one synthetic lash applied to one natural lash, the look and feel is completely natural and real. No one will know you have extensions. They will just think you were born with beautiful, long lashes!
How long will a set of Eyelash extensions last?When applied properly, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. Everyone’s experience will differ based on day to day activities, but overall, touch-ups are required every 2 weeks. A special waterproof bonding agent is used. Most clients do not experience irritation with the adhesive, but each individual has a different sensitivity level.
How often should I get touch ups?We recommend getting touch ups every 2 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall out every 45-60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Other factors such as exposure to steam or touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall out sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara it can be worn. It must, however, only be water based. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Water-proof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing then to fall sooner. EXTENSION MASCARA is recommended and should ONLY BE APPLIED TO ENDS, AND NOT THE ROOT OF THE LASHES. Care also needs to be taken in washing mascara off the lashes. ONLY USE SOAP AND WATER to wash the mascara, and not a make-up remover, which can pull or damage the extensions.
Can I swim Shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?Yes. The bonding agent we use is water proof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. We do recommend however that you do not wash your eye area for 24 hours after the eyelash application.
Can I use eyelash curlers with my lash extensions?We do not recommend using mechanical eyelash curlers on your extensions as these curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl.
How do I take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?– Do not get lashes wet for 24 hours
– Avoid hot steam or sauna
– Avoid running water directly on your lashes
– Do not rub your eyes
– Only use water based mascara (optional)
– If applying mascara do so from middle to tip, avoid root area
– Use water based eye makeup remover
– Do not perm your lashes
– Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler
– Do not pull on your lashes ( this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely and/or damage the natural hair follicles, which can be permanent)
– DO lie and say the lashes are yours!
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes.
How do I choose the look I want?Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness (diameter). We normally consult with the clients first to see what type of style they are interested in. We also determine what the natural lashes can hold in regards to thickness and size. Each individual’s natural lashes will vary in strength and length. We take this into consideration when creating a specific look or style. The overall appearance of the lashes should be natural.
