Most women don’t have the luxury of waking up with thick, long, beautiful eyelashes, and applying fake lashes every day can be a long and expensive process. False eyelashes can be difficult to apply, and if you plan on wearing them a full day, you’ll likely have to reapply the glue. False eyelashes also have a tendency to look fake; they are not customizable, and the size and length are not always appropriate for your eyes and face. Fortunately, Eminence Medical Aesthetics can give you eyelash extensions that will make you never want to go back to the days of gluing on your own lashes.

How Do Eyelash Extensions Work?

Getting extensions put on something as delicate as your eye can be a scary thought. To apply a full set of eyelash extensions, the process will take about two hours, and all that’s required of you, the client, is to lay back with your eyes closed. Many people find the process enjoyable and not at all painful. Lashes are chosen and placed based on your natural lashes. therefore each session is customizable to fit you.
Eyelash extensions are applied with a semi-permanent glue, similar to the type you would use for false eyelashes. Extensions are made from faux mink, faux fox, silk, real mink, synthetic materials, or human hair. The length, thickness, and curl of the lashes are all customizable.


Can You Wear Makeup With Eyelash Extensions?

The great thing about eyelash extensions is you will likely be able to ditch the mascara completely after a session. If you’re unable to say goodbye to your favorite mascara, it’s perfectly okay to apply a bit toward the end of your lashes to give them a little pop. Other makeup products such as eye shadow and eyeliner can also be worn with fake eyelashes.
If you apply makeup to your extensions, it’s important to stay away from liquid eyeliner along the lash line. A little wing at the outside of your lashes will not damage the extensions. When removing makeup, it’s important to use makeup remover that is not oil-based and to remove makeup gently and precisely to prolong the amount of time before you need a refill.

How Long Do They Last?

Eyelash extensions will follow the regular growth cycle of hair, which will be different for each person. Most people find they last 6-8 weeks, but monthly maintenance is recommended to keep lashes looking fresh all the time. Once you have a full set of lashes, the following sessions will not be nearly as long as only the missing eyelashes will need to be replaced.
Eyelash extensions will fall out over time or can be safely removed by a professional. To ensure the longevity of your extensions and the health of your natural lashes, you should never pull or forcibly remove your eyelash extensions.
