Pre-Treatment Guidelines...

  • Remove all traces of mascara and eye make-up BEFORE you arrive.

  • Do not wear contact lenses.

  • Ensure any spray tans are carried more than than 24 hours prior to your treatment.

  • Do not apply tints less than 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Your Appointment

There will be a consultation before we start, to establish what type of look you're after and your own eyelashes will be assessed to see what will best suit your eyes.  Your lashes will be bespoke, tailored specifically for you.  I apply classic and volume lashes (also known as Russian volume), with the aim of making your lashes look as natural as possible.  

The procedure is very relaxing - so please feel free to have a little lash nap during your treatment! 

Your lashes will be cleansed and primed, which removes any oil-residue on the lash (this helps create a good bond with the adhesive).   Each eyelash is then isolated one-by-one with the synthetic lash gently applied on top, using a EU-standard medical grade adhesive.  The extension is applied directly onto the existing lash, away from the skin of the eyelid so as to allow the natural growth of your own lashes.

Appointment times vary from 60-120 minutes, depending on what kind of look you're after. Infills are recommended usually every 2-3 weeks, depending on the rate of growth of your eyelashes, and how you look after them.  Most eyelashes have on average a 90-day growth cycle, which means you'll lose approximately 2-5 lashes per day on each eye.

Aftercare

The first 24-48 hours are crucial to the bonding procedure, and aftercare advice should be taken in order to get the most out of your eyelash extensions.

  • Avoid getting them wet for 24 hours

  • For 48 hours after treatment do not steam your face, use a steam bath, swim or wash face with hot water

  • No mascara

  • If you choose to wear mascara on your bottom lashes make sure it's a water based product

  • Do not use an eyelash curler or perm the lashes

  • Try not to rub or pull lashes when washing your face – pat dry

  • Avoid oily make-up products around your eyes

  • Use an oil free make-up remover

  • Remember emollients, creams, and oils are the eyelash bonding agent’s worst enemy

  • Use eye creams sparingly and avoid lid/lash area

Infills

Booking an infill appointment will entail removing any stray or fallen lashes first.  You'll leave looking as if you have had a new set applied.  There must be at least 25% still remaining to be classed as an infill.  Appointment times vary according to how much of an infill you need, I usually advise 45 or 60 minutes, every 2 or 3 weeks.
