FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What Are Eyelash Extensions?


Eyelash extension is an advanced technique that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. They are single strands of lashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. We use only quality extensions in faux mink and silk. You will feel the difference.




How will they look and feel?


When applied they will look completely natural, only much longer and fuller. They will feel like your own eyelashes. We do not count lashes, we will add as many or as few as needed to create the right look for you.




How long will my initial appointment take?


I take an artisan approach with my customers and will not rush your appointment. You can expect your first appointment to take approximately 75-120 minutes. Unlike some salons i do not count eyelashes, a full set is a full set. I will use as many as needed to create the right look for you. If you are happy, then im are happy.




How long will my Eyelash Extensions Last?


When properly applied and cared for, your eyelash extensions will last for four to six weeks. Please see the aftercare section on how to properly care for your eyelash extensions to maximize longevity.




What is a fill and how often should I get one?


After your initial set of eyelash extensions you will receive instructions on how to care for them. Fills are done every two to three weeks depending on care and how quickly your eyelashes grow. An eyelash extension fill take a shorter time to do and the prices reflect that.




Why do I lose some of my eyelashes?


Due to the natural growth cycle of your lashes you will find your natural eyelashes shed every 60-90 days as new ones grows in. We recommend getting a fill every two to three weeks to fill in lashes on the new growth.




Will extensions damage my eyelashes?


Yes and no. Yes, your lashes can be damaged if you go to someone who was not properly trained and uses cheap products not intended for long wear. No, extensions properly applied by a certified, trained technician who uses quality products should not. Our eyelash extension application techniques and innovative aftercare ensures your lash health.




A friend of mine is allergic to the products, is this common?


True allergic reactions do happen, but are rare. If you have developed an allergic reaction you may still wear extensions with some changes made to the aftercare process. What is more common is eye infection due to improperly washing and caring for your lashes. Waiting 24 hours to wash lashes and not washing your eyelashes the entire time you wear them are the most common causes of infections. Imagine not washing the head on your hair for weeks or months. This is the most common reason wearers lose their lashes prematurely.




Can I use eyelash growth products with my extensions?


Lash growth products that contain steroids change the composition of your lashes and accelerate your eyelash shedding cycle, therefore we cannot guarantee the outcome. Natural lash growth products containing peptides are wonderful and will have no adverse effect on the longevity of your extensions.




Will I still need to use mascara?


No, you will not need to use mascara with your lash extensions, but for nights that you want extra drama you can use a water-based mascara.




After Care


Now that you lashes take note of these tips to maintain them. With proper care and fills your eyelashes can last indefinitely. Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first 24 hours. Do not use a spa, sauna or pool for the first 24 hours. The extensions need that amount of time to properly bond. Avoid pulling or rubbing your eyes. Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them. ONLY use oil-free makeup remover. We carry several brands in our studio and also provide clients with a do-it-yourself eyelash wash. If your eyelashes are tangled or crossed over, use the Spoolie given to you during your appointment to gently brush them straight and put them in place. . Proper hygiene is very important. Please keep lashes clean by regular washing. Use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. After showering avoid rubbing lashes, it best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry. You can also dry the lashes by using a hair dryer on the cool setting and blowing them dry from the bottom up. It makes them curlier and fluffy. Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil-based products can break down the adhesive. I recommends touch-up appointments every two to four weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions.




What is Microblading?


Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently sketched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.




How long does it take?


For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 1.5-2 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure. The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1 hour to complete.




How long does it take to heal?


The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.

Can I get my touch up session sooner than 4 weeks?


Touch up sessions should not be done earlier than 4 weeks after initial microblading session as pigment color has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissue requires time to completely heal.




Is it painful?


The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and also reapplied during the procedure. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.




How long does it last?


Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid with fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individual's color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.




What are the pre and post care procedures?


In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions. Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following: Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone. No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior. Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows!




Who is not suitable for the procedure?


Microblading is not suitable for the following candidates: Using Accutane Have heart conditions or using heart medications Have diabetes (will require a physician's note) Have skin disease or irritations Have had Botox in the last 2 weeks Have gotten a deep tan or chemical peels in the last 2 weeks Allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine or epinephrine Anyone who has any serious medical conditions may require a physician's note. Pregnant or nursing clients who want to microblade can be done at your own discretion. We suggest discussing with your doctor first. Microblading is still considered a tattoo, and just like with wine or sushi consumption, it is a personal choice to do so during this period. * We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who we deem not suitable for this procedure or for any other reason. Our brow technicians make the decision to microblade an individual based on their own discretion. *




Risks and complications?


We take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilized equipment, new needles and in a sanitized environment. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be minimal risks or complications . Although allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals. We suggest a pigment patch test for individuals who have high skin sensitivities or are sensitive to: Topical makeup products Gold, silver and nickel Hair dyes Patch tests should be performed 5-7 days prior.




What if I do not like it?


As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure and compare different artists' work and portfolio when making their decisions. Our brow technicians will do their utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and color correction can also be fixed during the the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done
