Eyelash extensions are a synthetic, semi-permanent addition adhered to natural eyelashes in order to achieve longer and thicker-looking eyelashes. When considering eyelash extensions, the three basic things to ask the salon professional are how long they will last, how natural they look and the affect they may have on natural lashes. Each salon's techniques and supplies used may vary.
Depending on the adhesive, lash material and after-care, lash extensions can last until the natural lash is lost through the normal growth cycle. Most salons recommend replacing lost lashes every 4 weeks.
It is important to know the ingredients of the lash and adhesives that are used and how to care for them. An FDA-approved, medical grade adhesive, synthetic lashes and a certified stylist help ensure the best application, results and wear.
