How Will My Eyelash Extensions Be Done?

After the initial consultation to establish what shape and type of look you are after and any recommendations, it’s time to relax and lay down on the couch.

The eyes and lashes need to be free of make-up, but I will also clean the lashes to make sure they are free of any protein or oil. This is to ensure the lash extensions bond correctly to the host lash.

Using tweezers, I will use the pads as a work area by separating the individual lash that will receive the extension. The extension lash is then placed on to the host lash with a specially formulated bonding agent.

I will then place small white pads under each eye placed over the lower lashes to keep them out of the way. Your eyes are then kept closed for the duration of the procedure.

The application takes approximately 1 ¼ to 1 ½ and anywhere between 50 to 150 lashes on each eye, depending on the size and shape of your eyes together with the look you want to achieve.

Once all of the lashes have been applied, there is usually about a 5 – 10 minute wait for the bonding to dry and voila! Beautiful new lashes!

Lash Extensions Aftercare

To get the most out of your eyelash extensions, you need to follow some simple instructions.

The first 24-48 hours are crucial to the bonding procedure, so:

  • No water should come into contact with your eyelashes for 24 hours.
  • Do not steam your face for 48 hours after treatment, or use a steam bath, swim, or wash your face with hot water.
  • Only use water-based mascara on the tips of your lashes. This mascara type is available at the London clinic. It is specially formulated for easy removal. However, you don’t need it, and it can shorten the life of the lash extensions. DO NOT USE ON RUSSIAN LASH EXTENSIONS.
  • If you wear mascara on your bottom lashes, make sure it is water-based.
  • If you wear eyeliner, the best ones to use are the felt tip pens or gel; avoid pencil eyeliners as they tend to be a bit oily and clog between the lashes.
  • Do not use an eyelash curler or perm the lashes. It will break the eyelashes and/or crease them. However, you can use heated eyelash curlers which are particularly good for the real mink eyelash extensions and are available at the clinic.
  • Do not rub lashes when washing your face – always pat dry after cleansing.
  • Do not pull on your eyelashes. The bond on the extensions is so strong that it will pull your eyelash out along with the new ones.
  • If you wear eye make-up, a powder-based eye shadow is best.
  • To remove make-up, use an OIL FREE make-up remover, avoiding touching the eyelashes.
  • Remember, emollients, creams, and oils are the eyelash bonding agent’s worst enemy. Use eye creams sparingly and avoid the lid/lash area.
  • We naturally lose a few lashes a day that we seldom notice; however, you will notice the extensions. If you see your lash attached to the extensions, please don’t panic, as that’s what’s supposed to happen!
