Xtreme Lash Eyelash Extension Services
Xtreme Lash Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions are attached to each hair individually with a super-lightweight adhesive. They have incredible bonding power, lasting up to 2 months. They are resistant to water, shower, sweat, exercise, tears, swimming and even sleeping. They give longer, fuller, natural looking lashes that are weightless and very comfortable.
Please come to your appointment with No Mascara, Eyeliner or Heavy Makeup. If you don’t the time we’ll remove it for you when you arrive. Please do no use StriVectin 3 days prior to coming in. It interferes with the bonding. If you ware Contact Lens please bring a case to take them off during the application.
Also please do not to use any Oily Product on your eyelashes prior to your appointment.
First time Set of Eyelash Extensions for your important event:
If you’ve never done eyelash extensions before and you’ll have them for the first time for an important event, it’s highly recommended you come in for a trial set at least 1-2 weeks before your special event. Allergic reaction cases to eyelash extensions glue are very rare but come in advance just to be safe.
Minimal Care is required to maintain your eyelash extensions.
Do not use oil-based products, lash curlers, and lash perms or waterproof mascara on your lashes. One of the benefits of wearing Xtreme Lashes is that you no longer need mascara. However, if you would like to wear mascara we have the Xtreme Lash mascara specially formulated and compatible with your Xtreme Lashes and it’s important to keep lashes cleaned daily. Incompatible mascara may cause your eyelashes to fall out faster.
Natural skin oils, rubbing, scratching and pulling lashes will shorten the life of your extensions.
Your natural lashes have a life span of 45-60 days and it’s natural for lashes to shed and be replaced by new ones. You’re not losing your real lashes your growing new ones. For this reason, touch-ups are recommended every 3-4 weeks after application to replace any lost extensions due to your lashes natural life cycle.
First 2 Hours
Do not allow any water to come in contact with your new eyelash extensions for 2 hours after the procedure.
First 48 Hours
Do not steam face, use a steam bath, swim or wash lashes with hot water for 2 days after the eyelash extensions application, as the adhesive takes 48 hours to set and the sealer needs 10 hours to cure.
Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face. Be sure to use an oil-free facial cleanser. You may use a cotton swab to clean the corners of your eyes. Gently pat lashes dry after cleansing.
Don’t Rub your lashes for 24 hours
Get your lashes wet for 24 hours
Use harsh products or oil-based makeup removers
Take a steamy, hot shower the first 24 hours
No eye make up – unless it is the Elevate Keratin Mascara – for 24 hours
No waterproof mascara’s – indefinitely!! They are damaging to your lashes!
Go swimming for at least 24hrs.
Use coconut oil or castor oil on the lashes – this will cause them to straighten back. We will redo any lash lift that falls within the first week, free of charge.
