Lash Extension FAQs
Whether it is your first time getting lash extensions, you may have questions about the process. Below are the most common questions asked about lash extensions. If you have any additional questions, please contact Adaa Artistry Inc.
What do I have to do before I come to my eyelash appointment?
• Your eyelashes need to be clean and free of any mascara and make up as well as of any oil based products.
• We recommend not to use cream around your eye area as the fixing tape might not stick to the skin properly.
• If it's your first time with us, please make sure to arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to fill out the consent form and have a consultation.
• Remove your contact lenses.
How long does it take to apply eyelash extensions?
Depending on the amount of eyelash extensions being applied, it can take anywhere from 1 to 2.5 hours.
How soon before an event should I have my lash extensions done?
We suggest 2 - 4 days before the special event or vacation. This insures accurate curing time for the bonding agent (which can take up to 48 hours) and the freshest possible look for the lashes.
How thick and long will they make my lashes?
Depending upon on what kind of look you wish to create, lash extensions will thicken own lashes by 30 - 50%. Compared to the thickness of false eyelash strips, lash extensions look and feel much more natural. Also depending on the size you choose, extensions can make your lashes 20 - 50% longer.
What do I have to do to maintain them?
Lash extensions require touch-ups about every 2 - 3 weeks (depending on your lashes) to replace lost and grown out lashes. After 4 - 5 touch ups we recommend a fresh set to keep the lashes look new. Don’t get your lashes wet for 48 hours after application as the adhesive needs to fully dry. We recommend to clean your lashes with a special cleanser (can be purchased from us) 1 - 2 times a week and to gently brush them daily. Avoid oily and creamy make up remover and cleanser on your lash extension as they can break down the adhesive.
Can I use mascara?
Using mascara on your extension is NOT recommended. The look and ease of lash extensions are designed so that you don’t need to use mascara at all. Most mascaras contain ingredients that will damage and dissolve the bonding agent on your extensions and hence make them last not nearly as long.
Will the extensions pull my eyelashes off or damage them?
By taking care of your lashes by following our aftercare instructions, your extensions will not pull your eyelashes off. If you pull or are too rough on your lashes, then your eyelash will come off with the extension. Naturally your lashes will grow back in time without any problem, so it is nothing to worry about. Be gentle with your lashes and they will last much longer. PROPERLY APPLIED eyelash extensions do NOT cause damage to natural lashes.
Can I swim with eyelash extension?
Yes, you can swim with eyelash extension. Just make sure that you don’t rub your eyes and you wait at least 48 hours after the application.
