The process involves bonding lashes, synthetic or human hair, to your own with a special adhesive. Depending on the type of application, the lashes stay on for the life of your natural lash. Like the hair on your scalp, eyelashes all grow and shed at different stages. In general, a human lash will shed approximately every two months. Because of this, some lashes will shed sooner than others, which is why refill appointments are necessary to replace the lashes that have fallen out.
To maintain the look, you need a touch up every two to three weeks to replace any eyelashes that have fallen out. There are cases rare as it can be but true, that those that have worn extensions for so long period of time have become allergic to the glue that is used! This happen to a eyelash salon owner who is an professional at putting on and maintaining eyelash extensions.
On the other hand due to eyelash extensions being somewhat of a new treatment there will be salons all over the place without someone able to apply extensions. There will also be such places advertising looking for the services of someone with your credentials, these can be found all over the Internet after doing a relevant search.
The eyelash extension procedure is painless and will not harm your existing natural lashes or your eyelids. The lash extensions are never applied directly to your eyelids. The procedure takes up to two hours to do and entails the placement of 60 to 80 lashes per upper eyelid. Lower eyelid lashes are not done. When properly applied and maintained, eyelash extensions can last indefinitely with touchups every 2 to 4 weeks. A natural lash typically falls out every 60 to 90 days and is replaced with the growth of a new eyelash.
The hair follicles which have been transplanted grow like normal hair on the eyelids also. This means that the eyelashes need to be trimmed and cut regularly and should be curled. The entire procedure takes about a couple of hours and around 30 new eyelashes are grafted per eye. The entire surgery is very expensive but it is a one-time affair, so, many prefer it to constantly struggling with false eyelashes or temporary eyelash extensions.
You are probably someone who uses allot of mascara and also spends allot of money on the stuff, if you have eyelash extensions in you don't need to wear ANY mascara! Secondly, you should buy some eye make up remover from your eyelash technician, they will have some and for the sake for a few more pounds to the bill you should buy it. If you have paid so much for fake eyelashes you don't want them to fall out after a week because the make up remover you are using is causing them to fall out.
