Wake Up With Fuller, Longer Lashes: Scope on Lash Extension

How do lash extensions work?


We apply lash extensions one by one using a semi-permanent, medical-grade adhesive. The process begins with an initial consultation to determine the desired look and lash style. The lash technician carefully separates each natural lash and bonds a synthetic extension to it using adhesive.

the longevity of lash extensions. We advise clients to refrain from using oil-based products, excessive moisture, and rubbing or picking at their lashes. We recommend gently brushing and cleaning the lashes with a lash extension-safe cleanser to maintain their optimal appearance.


Benefits of Lash Extensions

Lash extensions offer several benefits that make them an appealing cosmetic enhancement for many individuals. One of the primary advantages is the ability to achieve a striking, enhanced appearance with longer, fuller, and more dramatic lashes. This can create a wide-eyed, youthful look that accentuates and opens up the eyes.

Another significant benefit is the time-saving convenience that lash extensions provide. With lash extensions, there is no need to apply mascara daily, saving valuable time during morning routines and touch-ups throughout the day. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with busy lifestyles or those who prefer a low-maintenance beauty routine.




Preparation and aftercare

Proper preparation and aftercare are crucial for ensuring the longevity and safety of your lash extensions. Expectations and pre- and post-appointment tips are here.

During the appointment:

The process typically takes 1-3 hours, depending on the desired look and the technician's experience. Your technician will carefully apply the extensions, one by one, to your natural lashes using a semi-permanent adhesive as you lie down comfortably on a lash bed.

Pre-Appointment Instructions:

  • Avoid wearing any eye makeup, including mascara, on the day of your appointment.
  • Ensure your natural lashes are clean and free from oils or residue.
  • Avoid using any oil-based products around the eye area for at least 24 hours before your appointment.

Aftercare Tips for Longevity:

  • Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours after the application to allow the adhesive to fully cure.
  • To prevent tangling and keep your lashes looking neat, gently brush them daily with a clean spoolie brush.
  • Avoid using oil-based makeup removers, as oils can break down the adhesive and cause premature shedding.
  • Sleep on your back and avoid rubbing your eyes to prevent excessive lash loss.
  • Avoid exposure to excessive heat, steam, and saunas, as these can weaken the adhesive bond.
  • Schedule touch-up appointments every 2–4 weeks to maintain fullness and replace any shed lashes.

By following these preparation and aftercare guidelines, you can ensure your lash extensions look their best and last as long as possible.


Lash extension removal

Lash extensions are semi-permanent, designed to last until the natural lash cycle causes them to shed, typically within 6–8 weeks. However, there are several reasons why you may need to remove your lash extensions sooner:

When to remove lash extensions

  • Growth cycle: As your natural lashes grow and shed, the extensions can become sparse and uneven, requiring removal and reapplication.
  • Irritation or infection: If you experience redness, swelling, or discomfort around the eye area, it's crucial to remove the extensions to prevent further issues.
  • Lifestyle changes: Certain activities, like swimming or intense workouts, may necessitate temporary removal for convenience or hygiene reasons.
  • Maintenance: Proper removal is necessary before reapplying new extensions to ensure a clean slate and avoid excessive buildup.

Methods for safe removal

Improper removal techniques can damage your natural lashes or cause irritation. We recommend having a professional technician remove your lash extensions using safe methods.

  • Professional removal solution: Technicians use a specialized remover to break down the adhesive bond without harming your natural lashes.
  • We carefully isolate and remove the extensions one by one to minimize stress on your natural lashes.

Risks of Improper Removal

Attempting to remove lash extensions yourself or using harsh methods can lead to several risks:

  • Lash damage: Pulling or tugging at extensions can cause your natural lashes to break or become sparse.
  • Eye irritation: Improper removal techniques may introduce irritants or debris into the eye area, causing discomfort or infection.
  • Adhesive residue: Leftover adhesive can build up and potentially damage new lash growth.

To maintain the health and integrity of your natural lashes, it's crucial to prioritize safe and professional lash extension removal when necessary.




Lash Extensions vs. Alternatives

While lash extensions have gained immense popularity in recent years, they are not the only option available for enhancing the appearance of your lashes. Here's how lash extensions compare to some of the alternatives:

False Lashes

A professional or at home can apply temporary false lashes, also known as strip lashes. Unlike lash extensions, which are individually applied to your natural lashes, false lashes come in strips or clusters that are attached along the lash line. They are a more affordable option, but they can look unnatural and require reapplication after each use.

Lash Serums

Lash serums are topical treatments designed to promote lash growth and improve the overall health and appearance of your natural lashes. While they can help enhance the length and thickness of your lashes over time, the results are generally less dramatic than those achieved with lash extensions. Additionally, serums require consistent and long-term use to maintain results.



Mascara is a traditional and affordable way to enhance the appearance of your lashes. However, it requires daily application and can sometimes clump or flake, leading to a less natural look than lash extensions. Additionally, mascara does not add length or volume to your natural lashes; it merely coats and tints them.


Other alternatives for enhancing lashes include lash tinting, which can darken and define your natural lashes, and lash perming, which curls and lifts your lashes similarly to a lash lift. These options can be combined with lash extensions or used separately, depending on your desired results.
