Frequently Asked Questions About Lash Extensions

Lash extensions are a popular treatment for enhancing the appearance of your lashes, but they can also be a source of confusion and uncertainty for those who are considering them. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about lash extensions.

  1. What are lash extensions?

Lash extensions are individual synthetic or natural lashes that are applied to your own lashes by a trained lash technician. The extensions are applied one by one using a medical-grade adhesive, and can last for several weeks with proper maintenance.

  1. How long do lash extensions last?

Lash extensions typically last for several weeks, but the exact lifespan will depend on factors such as your natural lash cycle and how well you care for your lash extensions. Most lash technicians recommend getting regular touch-ups every 2-3 weeks to maintain a full, luscious look.

  1. Can lash extensions damage my natural lashes?

If applied and maintained properly, lash extensions should not damage your natural lashes. However, if they are applied incorrectly or not properly maintained, lash extensions can cause damage to your natural lashes. It's important to choose a trained and experienced lash technician to minimize the risk of damage.

  1. How do I care for my lash extensions?

To care for your lash extensions, avoid water for the first 24-48 hours after getting them to allow the glue to fully set. After this initial period, be gentle when washing your face and avoid getting water directly on your lash extensions. Use oil-free makeup removers and be gentle when removing your eye makeup, and avoid rubbing or pulling on your lash extensions.

  1. Can I wear mascara with lash extensions?

You can wear mascara with lash extensions, but it's important to choose a mascara that is specifically formulated for use with lash extensions. Regular mascaras can be too heavy for lash extensions and can cause them to fall out prematurely. Look for mascaras that are labeled as "lash extension-friendly" or use a clear mascara to add a little extra shine without weighing down your lashes.

By answering these frequently asked questions, you can feel more informed and confident about getting lash extensions and caring for them properly. Talk to a lash technician for more information and to determine if lash extensions are right for you.
