Eyelash extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash and weigh about as much. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. Eyelash extensions add curl, thickness, and length to lashes, creating a more youthful, uplifting, open-eyed appearance. They simplify the rest of your beauty regimen since little or no eye makeup is necessary. A darker lash line replaces the need for eyeliner and mascara on most clients. Eyelash extensions are flexible yet crimp-resistant and move with your natural lashes. As long as you keep up with the touch ups, it is almost impossible to tell that you're wearing extensions. E Lash Studios utilizes two techniques: 1D Classic and 2D-4DVolume.
The Classic application is characterized by 1 single lash applied to each natural lash one at a time giving a very natural appearance. The Volume technique gives 2-3 times the volume as our traditional Classic lash application. This advanced technique has increased the application possibilities more than ever before. The lashes are finer, softer and more durable. Our new 2D-4D Volume Lashes allow the safe application of 2-4 baby fine lash extensions to be applied to 1 single natural lash. This technique, when competently applied by a trained stylist allows a women who has sparse lashes, or those with regular lashes to have more lashes applied than would normally be possible. This new technique gives a soft and fluffy appearance while also stretching the time needed between maintenance refills. You will not notice the addition of the extensions to your lashes and they should not cause your natural lashes to shed ahead of their natural cycle.
HOW SAFE ARE EYELASH EXTENSION ADHESIVES?
Although our procedure does not entail the use of adhesive on the skin, our adhesives have been formulated to be perfectly safe for skin contact. Both of our adhesives are medical grade, created with the same ingredient that is used by surgeons to close wounds on the skin without stitches.
ARE THEY EASY TO CARE FOR AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Natural eyelashes are programmed to grow and shed in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and sheds, a new natural lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of their life cycle. Some are just growing in while others are ready to shed. On an average, people shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day depending on our individual growth cycles. With proper care and maintenance, touch ups are typically needed once every 2 to 3 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. With Eyelash extensions, it is possible to do any activity, in moderation. The specially formulated adhesives create a water resistant bond that will withstand basic levels of activity.
HOW CAN I MAINTAIN THEIR NATURAL APPEARANCE?
The eyelash application is completely customized for each client. We offer 2 techniques; 6 different thicknesses of lashes; lengths ranging from 4mm to 17mm; and a variety of colours for highlighting effects. Multiple synthetic lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The technique and thickness of the lash applied is determined by the health and thickness of a client's natural lashes as well as client preference. The 1D Classic technique gives a more natural appearance as they are applied 1 single lash at a time.
CAN I STILL WEAR MAKEUP OVER THE TATTOOED AREA?
Yes. Permanent Cosmetics should enhance your natural features. Wearing additional makeup is a personal choice and may be done at your own discretion. It is often done to go from a natural day time look to an evening look. Do not apply any makeup for 72 hours.
IS IT PAINFUL?
Permanent Cosmetics is a skin invasive procedure and therefore you may experience some discomfort which varies with individual tolerance levels. The sensation is comparable to tweezing eyebrows/eyelashes. A topical anesthetic is applied throughout the procedure for your comfort.
