LASH EXTENSIONS FAQ'S

image7

What are Lavish Lashes?

An exciting new product and technique for fuller longer, and naturally abundant looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of an individual synthetic eyelash directly attached to the natural eyelash with a specially formulated bonding agent.  Lavish Lashes® Professional Eyelash Extensions are for professional use only and must be applied by someone trained and certified in applying eyelash extensions. 

I wear contacts, can I receive lash extensions?

We ask you to bring a contact lens case and saline solution to your appointment, if you wear contact lenses. As a safety precaution you will be required to remove your lenses before the lashes are applied. Wearing contact lenses while getting lash extensions is a safety issue and may be uncomfortable. After the lashes are applied, you can put your contact lenses back in, or if more convenient, just wear glasses to your appointment. 

How often do I need a fill?

 Like your nails and the hair on your head, your individual eyelashes grow out on a continuous cycle of replenishment. The average cycle of a single lash is about 100 days. While some individual eyelash extensions may last as long as 2 months, to ideally maintain the fullness and for best results, we recommend you  re-lash every 2-3 weeks weeks.  

Will I lose my natural lashes with extensions?

The average life span of an eyelash is between 90 and 120 days. And, of course, when your natural eyelash falls out, so does your extension. Everyone’s eyelash growth cycle differs, and often eyelash extensions can last up to several weeks. On average, a person naturally loses 1 – 4 eyelashes every day.  With proper care of your lashes at home you will not lose your natural lashes beyond your natural growth cycle. We recommend ReVitalash growth conditioner to maintain healthy lash growth and to support your natural lash growth cycle. 

Can I curl my eyelashes when I have extensions?

 The lashes have a natural looking curve, so there is no need to use an eyelash curler. 

Can I wet my lashes / go swimming / spa?

Shower, swim or spa worry free.  Occasional short visits to the sauna or steam room are fine. However, daily or extensive exposure to steam or intense heat may cause the bonding agent to loosen. If this happens, you may require a Re-Lavish application to correct any lash that may have fallen off or tilted in direction from your natural lash. 

6 lash tips to ensure the best results

AVOID USING OIL-BASED PRODUCTS

Avoid using oil-based cleansers, serums and eye creams around the eye area. Over time some extension may begin to separate from the natural lash with the use of oil-based products (both natural and synthetic).

AVOID GETTING LASHES WET FOR 24 HRS.

Wait at least 24 hours before getting your lashes wet. This includes showering, splashing water on your face, visits to the sauna/steam room, swimming, crying, and sweating during exercise. 

HANDS-FREE

Keep your hands-off your lashes, no matter how bad you want to touch them. Don’t rub, pick or pull your Lavish Lashes® to avoid permanent damage to your natural eyelash. Just as plucking your eyebrow hair can cause damage to the root causing it to not grow back ─ the same is true for eyelashes. 

USE WATER-WASHABLE MASCARA

Although mascara is not needed after getting Lavish Lashes®, if you want to use it, gently apply water-based mascara only to the tips of your lash extensions.  

CLEANSE YOUR EYES

Use our "LASH WASH" specially formulated for gently removing debris and oils around the eyes to prolong the life of your lashes and encourage their growth. Avoid using cotton swabs when cleansing your lash line. After using cleansers, or showering, always pat them dry ─ avoid rubbing with your towel. 

AVOID SLEEPING ON LASHES

Avoid rubbing your eyes too aggressively on your pillow while sleeping, you may want to consider a silk pillowcase to prevent wrinkling and damage to your lashes.
