Keep Your Lashes Healthy While Wearing Extensions!

Keeping Your Lashes Healthy While Wearing Extensions!

As semi-permanent eyelash extensions become more popular, there’s an increase of unsafe methods being used to perform the service as well as misinformation about the health of the natural lashes when wearing correctly applied extensions.

Eyelash extensions should never damage your natural lashes! If applied correctly by a licensed and knowledgeable technician, extensions can be worn for several years without any adverse effects on the natural lashes. In compliance with Texas law, all Lash Lounge technicians are licensed and complete a thorough training program to ensure that the health of the natural lashes is never compromised.

We only use medical grade bonding adhesive not available in stores and offer a sensitive glue option for those with easily irritable eyes. Lash Lounge trained technicians are educated on the proper sanitation methods, as well as the correct application and removal of eyelash extensions. However there are many individuals (who may or may not be licensed) that are not using the proper methods and products.

Like any other beauty service such as hair styling, it is best to only trust your lashes in the hands of experts. Read the tips below for information on how to keep your natural lashes healthy if you’re currently wearing semi-permanent eyelash extensions or what signs to look for when considering the service for the first time.

If You’re Currently Wearing Lash Extensions…

  • NEVER attempt to remove eyelash extensions on your own. In between refills, we know it is tempting to remove the near shedding extensions. Our application method allows for the extensions to fall off painlessly with the natural lash during your normal shedding cycle. We offer several products including mascaras and coating sealers to extend the lash extension’s durability between refills.
  • Brush through lashes gently with a clean mascara wand to remove any shedding lashes. NEVER pull or tug on lashes to remove an extension. This can cause damage to the natural lash. Our technicians are specially trained in the removal method to prevent damage.
  • Remove eye makeup daily to prevent irritation and possible infection. Use cool water to rinse away dirt. Always wait 24 hours before directly applying water to lashes after a refill in order to give the adhesive time to set.
  • Most importantly, tell your service technician if you’re experiencing any discomfort during the service or shortly after the service is completed. Contact your nearest Lash Lounge for more information if unusual irritation occurs.

If You’re Thinking About Trying Eyelash Extensions…

  • Do your homework! Ask around for referrals. Finding a reputable lash technician is key to preventing possible damage. You wouldn’t let your nail technician give you a haircut. The same goes for your lashes!
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the service provider for specific information about their products and utensils. A license should be visible in the service area as well. If it is not, request to see it or run!
  • The typical price for a full set of eyelash extensions ranges between $200 – $400. Paying a significant lower amount may suggest that the individual is not licensed or is not using the proper utensils and products. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is ever true in the eyelash extensions industry.
  • A first time full set of semi-permanent eyelash extensions should take between 90 to 120 minutes to apply. If it takes a shorter amount of time, it is most likely not being done correctly.
  • Lashes should never be stuck together or clumpy after the service. If this is the case, you should quickly have them removed by a properly trained technician.
