Your eyelash extensions, when applied properly will last for the full cycle of your lashes. The life cycle of a natural eyelash is the amount of time it takes for the natural lash to grown in and fall out. The average cycle is 60 to 120 days, Recommended touch-up appointments are every 3-4 weeks, simply to fill in the areas where the natural lashes have fallen out and new lashes are growing in.

The lash extension application can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, depending on the fullness of your natural lashes. The more lashes that you have, the more extensions that can be applied. This is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration; therefore it is important not to rush the process so that you can leave with a perfect set of lashes! You will feel no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure. Feel free to fall asleep.
Your extensions can be removed at any time. Your technician will use a removal solution that removes the bond and keeps your natural eyelashes healthy. Please do not attempt to remove the lashes yourself as damage can occur. However we believe you will want to keep your extensions!
Most clients don't feel the need to wear mascara since the extensions give the lashes the appearance of mascara being worn 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Finally you can now get out of bed do your daily routine, go out in the evening and still have your eyes look great. Imagine no more running, streaking, smudging mascara (no more raccoon eyes), also fantastic for brides on their special day. You may even find that you won't need eyeliner, either! However, you can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual along with our specially formulated mascara made just for your extensions (NEVER USE WATERPROOF MASCARA). Make-up removal must be with a product that does not contain oil or soap of any kind as this will affect the longevity of the bond. Please also refrain from using oil based makeup. For a more specific list of products that are not recommended for usage ask your eyelash extension technician
We only use high quality faux mink or silk lashes depending on the client's preference. There are also real mink and colored eyelash extensions available for those looking for a bolder look. Both of these varieties of eyelash extensions are made of extremely high-quality material which is light in weight, therefore 100% safe to use on your natural eyelashes without risk of breakage. For those who would like a quick fix we can offer clusters (where you find one to three eyelashes attached to one string) along with non medicalgrade adhesive. At Alternative Laser Health we recommend the high-quality eyelash extensions that are safe and offer high flexibility to prevent breakage. They are also very comfortable so the wearer doesn't even feel their presence!
Your lashes will need to be completely clean, free of make-up and mascara. We will prep your eyes with cooling gel pads. You will relax the entire time as your extensions are applied one by one to nearly every one of your natural lashes and the sealed for longevity. The end result is longer fuller voluminous lashes.
There is still some confusion about what eyelash extensions really are. All eyelash extensions are semi-permanent. Having eyelash extensions applied is a non-invasive process where the bond is only applied to your lashes and never even touches your skin: therefore they are permanently attached to your natural eyelash. In time however, your natural eyelashes fall out as they reach the height of their growth and in order to keep your eyelashes looking fabulous all year long you should come in for minimal monthly maintenance.
