Below are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions regarding eyelash extensions. If your concern hasn’t been covered, please feel free to contact Angel Lash directly.
ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS SAFE?
While you may have heard some horror stories, we’re here to tell you that eyelash extensions are completely safe, provided they are applied and maintained by a trained professional (this is definitely not a procedure you should DIY!). Although an extremely strong bonding agent is used to apply the lashes, an experienced technician will ensure that the delicate skin around the eye never comes into contact with it. Angel Lash uses high grade silicone pads and specifically designed tape to protect from any potential eye or skin irritation.
WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE AND HOW DO THEY FEEL?
Like your natural lashes! When the correct length and style of lash is properly applied, you won’t be able to feel anything other than a beautifully full set of lashes!
CAN I SWIM, SHOWER, EXERCISE OR VISIT A SPA WHILE WEARING EXTENSIONS?
Things would get tricky if you couldn’t! Our specially formulated bonding agent means that lashes stay perfectly affixed to your eyes, regardless of the activities you’re enjoying. In fact, plenty of women come in for their first set of extensions just before going on holiday to maximise their natural gorgeousness without the need for mascara or eyelash curlers.
Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure.
CAN I APPLY EXTENSIONS TO MY OWN LASHES?
Absolutely not. Not only would it be difficult to attempt to affix the very fine individual lashes used to achieve a beautifully natural look to your own eyes, you’d also run the risk of serious irritation and/or eye injury from the bonding agent required. Choosing a fully qualified, experienced lash technician is the only way to go when it comes to having your extentions applied.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY LASHES TOUCHED UP OR INFILLED?
Your natural lash growth cycle will continue to take place while wearing lash extensions. Generally, a natural eyelash is shed every 60-90 days and replaced with the growth of a new individual lash. Touch ups or infills are needed to replace the lashes that have fallen away since application. We recommended a visit every two to four weeks, depending on how quickly your lashes are cycling through.
CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
‘Relaxing’ and ‘pain free’ are the best words to describe the application process. The extensions are applied individually to your natural lashes while you lie comfortably (and snugly) on the Angel Lash table. Your eyes are closed during the procedure and your main concern will most likely be whether or not you’ll manage to stay awake! A full application usually takes between 60-120 minutes, depending on the experience of the technician and the number of lashes being applied.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY NEW EXTENSIONS?
There’s nothing like opening your eyes and seeing your brand new lashes for the first time! Long, thick and beautiful, you want to keep them in the best shape possible for as long as you can. Luckily, your brand new additions are easy to maintain. To keep things looking pretty, Angel Lash recommends the following:
- Do not wash your eyes or shower for 24 hours after lash application.
- Do not swim or spa for 48 hours after lash application, to allow adequate time for bonding.
- Be gentle with your lashes.
- Avoid rubbing your eyes.
- Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara as it can loosen the bonding agent.
- Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used.
- Use mascara sparingly and gently remove with water-based eye makeup remover.
- Angel Lash stocks specific eyelash extension safe water-based mascara which can be purchased after having your lashes done.
- To maintain the best possible appearance, Angel Lash recommend that you get a touch up every two to four weeks.
IS THERE PRODUCT APPROVAL IN AUSTRALIA?
There is no need for this kind of regulation in Australia as the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin.
