What are eyelash extensions dc? Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, faux-mink eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are carefully applied to each eyelash one extension at a time, for a natural look that lengthens and adds volume to existing lashes. Lash extensions look and feel completely real. They create the appearance of a brighter, more open, rested eye, which creates a more youthful and rejuvenated look. Xtreme Eyelash Extensions are available in the Bethesda, Arlington, Chevy Chase, and Washington DC Areas.
Are eyelash extensions safe? When applied properly, absolutely! Only the highest standard of hygiene, safety and perfection in application are followed by use of top quality products and rigorous protocol. Contraindicated for people who are sensitive to acrylic nails, band-aide adhesive (not latex, lash procedures is 100% latex free), waterproof mascara, or cyanoacrylate adhesives.
Can I still wear makeup and mascara? Yes, one of the main advantages of eyelash extensions is that you really don’t need to wear mascara or as much eye makeup. However, if you really love your mascara then Xtreme Lashes Brand has formulated a lovely one to protect your investment. Only wear mascara from the middle length to the tips.
Are eyelash extensions waterproof? After the initial 3 hours following your appointment, yes. (New Super Curing Adhesive!!! Say goodbye to the 48 hour rule) You can shower, swim, exercise and play in the water to your hearts content. Please keep in mind that that heat of Bikram yoga and the steam of saunas could contribute to premature lash loss. More frequent lash refills are advised.
What about aftercare? Eyelash extensions will make your life easier! For the first 3 hours, lashes must be kept dry. No water please. For best results, avoid using creams, sunscreen and oils around the eye area. Avoid rubbing or pulling your lashes. Do not use an eyelash curler (you won’t need one!) TLC should include cleansing the lash line with an oil-free make up remover and lint free brushes, grooming with an eyelash wand, and routine fills. Xtreme Lashes Washington DC has everything you need with an easy to use aftercare kit to keep lashes pristine. Easy aftercare instructions will be given at the end of your treatment.
How long will my eyelash extensions last? Your look can be maintained indefinitely with routine touch-ups. Our natural lashes shed every 60-90 days; this is a normal occurrence, with or without extensions. Lash refills are necessary every two to four weeks in order to maintain a beautiful look. Xtreme Eyelashes brand eyelash extensions available in the Washington DC, Bethesda, Arlington area.
How do I best prepare for my appointment? Please arrive without any make-up on or contact lenses, ready to relax face up with your eyes closed. Avoid any facial peels prior to the appointment. Wear comfy clothing and please do not wear perfume. If you have questions please feel free to contact Shannon at 301-789-5525. I’d love to hear from you.
What can I expect during my appointment? The application of a full set of lash extensions is safe, painless, and relaxing. It takes between 90 to 120 minutes to apply. You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while a single, synthetic lash is applied to your natural lash using a medical-grade adhesive. Lashes are available in various lengths, colors, thicknesses and curves. Lash refills take approximately 45-60 minutes to apply. Many people fall asleep they are so relaxed and refer to this as their “Beauty Sleep”
