Xtreme Lashes® - Extensions
What are Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extensions?
Xtreme Lashes® are semi-permanent eyelash extensions consisting of individual hypo-allergenic synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Xtreme Lashes are applied individually by a trained eyelash stylist to each of your own natural lashes to add length, fullness and darkness.
Who should receive Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extensions?
Anyone looking to add thickness, darkness and length to their own natural lashes should receive Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extensions. Xtreme Lashes® are perfect for events like weddings and proms and as well as for athletes who do not want mascara or eyeliner running or smudging during their workouts. Additionally, Xtreme Lashes® are great for everyday wear and help to cut down on morning and evening beauty routines, and give the appearance of looking “finished” everyday, all the time!
What do they look like and how do they feel once applied?
With proper application, eyelash extensions look and feel completely natural. Every application is customized to suit each individual whether they desire a more natural or dramatic look. The overall effect adds curl, thickness and length. It also opens up the eye area which creates a youthful and refreshed appearance. Scheduling regular touch up applications every 2 to 4 weeks after your initial full set of lashes will keep your extensions looking and feeling their best.
Can I still wear mascara with my eyelash extensions?
Yes, though mascara will not really be necessary since the extensions give the appearance of wearing mascara. If mascara is still desired, it must be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions causing them to be shed sooner. Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
Can I swim, shower, exercise or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent used is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Special care is required but overall maintenance is low. However you must avoid washing your eye area for at least 48 hours after the eyelash application and avoid any facial products that contain oil that could come in contact with your Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extensions.
Can I use eyelash curlers with my eyelash extensions?
Mechanical eyelash curlers are not recommended. These curlers will damage the extensions and possibly your own natural lashes. The extensions do have a natural curl but if more of a curl is desired, speak to your trained eyelash stylist as she can make adjustments and more curl to your overall look at your next appointment.
How do I take care of my new eyelash extensions?
- Do not wash eyes, swim, or shower for 48 hours after lash extension application, to allow time for bonding.
- Do not rub your eyes.
- Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler.
- Avoid oil-based makeup products, including mascara and eye-makeup remover.
- These will cause the glue bond to separate. Use only water-based mascara.
- Apply mascara from mid lash up to the tips, only.
- Use only water-based facial cleansers if possible.
- Use a q-tip when removing eye makeup
- Do not visit saunas or steam rooms frequently. Continued exposure to heat may cause the bond to loosen.
How long do Xtreme Lashes® Last?
When properly applied, an Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it is placed, falls out. This can be as long as two months or more. With proper care and maintenance, touch ups are typically only needed once every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed.
How long does the procedure take?
It generally takes about 2 hours to apply a full set of lashes. Touch ups can be done in as little as 45 minutes or less.
What is the application process like?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while your lash extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort while the extensions are being applied and most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
Can eyelashes extension be applied to someone who does not have any eyelashes?
Because eyelash extensions are applied to existing natural lashes you must have at least some natural lashes to receive the procedure.
Can I apply eyelash extension to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained and licensed professional will be able to safely apply Xtreme Lashes® eyelash extensions. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury, lash damage or unnatural looking lashes.
