Frequently Asked Questions
How Can We Help?
WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent synthetic fibers used to create more volume while lengthening
and extending the natural eyelashes.
How long do Eyelash Extensions last?
This will depend on several factors, the biggest one is how well you maintain your lashes.
To maintain your lashes fill appointments are necessary every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that
have shed or outgrown naturally. We always advise that after the initial set of extensions a fill should
be done at 2 weeks as they may have lost or shed more than normal due to the time of their shed cycle.
What are Our Eyelash Extensions made of?
Eyelash extensions are made of a premium synthetic material called PBT. (Polybutylene Terephthalate
PBT is a synthetic semi-crystalline engineered thermoplastic or is a thermoplastic engineering
polymer. All lashes, whether they are called Synthetic Mink, Synthetic Silk, Supermink, etc... are
made of this material.
Is the adhesive safe?

➢ Low fumes
➢ Long hold time of up to 8 weeks

Will I be able to sense that I am wearing Extensions?
The extensions are placed 1 millimeter away from the base of the natural eyelashes, therefore you
won’t be able to feel the extensions. However you may notice them in you peripheral vision for the few days.

Can I wear makeup with Eyelash Extensions?
Mascara and Eyeliner are not recommended as the oils can break down the bonds of the adhesive. If
you are wearing eyeshadows or liners, proper cleansing is imperative.

Will extensions hurt or harm my natural lashes?
Since the extensions are applied to your existing natural lashes, away from the base and don’t touch
the skin, the natural lash is not harmed.
The eyelash extensions do not force the natural lash to shed or break unless improperly applied or an
extension that is too heavy for the natural lash is used.
How long does an Eyelash Extension Application take?
A full set can take anywhere from 1.5 hours - 4 hours. This will depend on the type of lashing being
applied, the experience of the professional and how many lashes a client has.
