Important Details and Information
Click on the picture to see a 5 minute video on how lash extensions are applied, the required care & the products to help maximize the longevity of your lashes:
What are eyelash extensions and how are they applied?
Eyelash extensions are single synthetic/mink or silk lashes which are applied directly to the natural lash with a permanent bonding adhesive. A single extension is applied to a single lash. They are applied carefully, one by one using specially designed tweezers. The whole process normally takes 1 – 2 hours depending on how many lashes are applied.
What happens during an Eyelash Application?
When performed by a Misencil® technician, this procedure is safe, painless, and relaxing. You will be asked to lie down and close your eyes. First, the technician will put Coenzyme Q10 anti-wrinkle patches to protect, smooth and brighten up the eye contour. Then, she will apply the extensions directly on your natural lashes without touching the epidermis. Your look will be radiant and… glamorous.
Can everyone use eyelash extensions?
Almost anyone can use eyelash extensions to increase the appeal and look of their eyes. The difference will be instant – your eyes will look gorgeous immediately and they can make you look up to 10 years younger!!
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Typically between 3-4 weeks as the eyelash extension lasts until the natural lash falls out in its natural cycle. It is advisable to have fills applied approximately every 2.5 - 4 weeks (depending on how well you take care of them)
Do eyelash extensions damage your natural lashes? What you might have heard..Not at all, as long as they are applied correctly. The eyelash extensions come off when your natural lash falls out, and so long as an appropriate weight extension has been applied, your natural lashes will grow through as normal. Please listen to the technicians' advice about how long/heavy you should go if you have naturally thin or sparse lashes. Don't try to remove the eyelash extensions yourself - as this could easily damage your natural lashes, as the adhesive bond is extremely strong.
Inexperienced technicians or those who rush (beware beauty salons who do not specialize!) are apt to apply lashes that are too heavy/clumped together which can definitely result in damaged lashes. Our goal at The Illustrious Lash Studio is to give you beautiful lashes every time, with no damage to your natural lashes. Misencil is recognized for their top of the line & extensive training and TOP quality of products.
Is having eyelash extensions applied painful?
The eyelash extensions are applied directly to the eyelash, so there is no contact with the skin. It may feel a little unusual the first time, but once you get used to it, it should be so comfortable that you may drift off to sleep during the application!
Will eyelash extensions irritate my eyes?
No - once your eyelash extensions are applied, they will feel just like your normal lashes - you shouldn't feel any difference. If you have sensitivities/allergies and are concerned about any kind of reaction The Illustrious Lash Studio offers a trial lash application of a few lashes as part of the complementary application.
I once had extensions using another method, but my eyelashes were clumpy and did not last. Why? There are 4 possible reasons for that:
- Quality of Training :
- For the best results, training is crucial. After their training, our students become certified only after submitting photographs of their work for review. They also receive training in areas like sanitation and security, and put their knowledge into practice on live models.
- Quality of Glue:
- Water resistant, our glue features quick polymerizing and adhesive qualities. This type of glue is commonly used by health professionals to reconnect tissues as an alternative to sutures. It is also used for ophthalmic surgical procedures. Our glue was exclusively developed for eyelash extensions application.
- Quality of Eyelashes:
- Misencil® eyelashes are applied one by one and stay in place perfectly. Lash sections are too heavy and fall out easily. Each Misencil® eyelash extension is coated with a microtexture for better adhesion. In fact, our exclusive ELLIPSE eyelashes are pre-curved and follow perfectly the natural shape of your lashes for a fresh, radiant look.
- Quality of Products:
- Misencil® is the only brand to offer a comprehensive line of cosmetic products that are exclusively developed for the care and maintenance of eyelash extensions. To optimize the lifespan of your permanent eyelashes, daily care is essential.
Are eyelash extensions safe when pregnant?
Generally speaking, eyelash extensions are a safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure. We use a high-quality and low fume adhesive. We would suggest you call us ahead of making an appointment to review the details of the procedure and your pregnancy.
