Many women wish for longer, darker eyelashes. Many will try dietary options and vitamins. However, genetics in the end will determine how long or dark your eyelashes will naturally be. Many will try to wear fake eyelashes which take too much time to put on and doesn’t last nearly long enough for your efforts. This is where eyelash extensions can help. The Skin and Body Refinery will share more about eye lash extensions to see if they are right for you.

Different Types of Eyelash Extensions

There are three major types of eyelash extensions. You will find there are synthetic, mink, and silk. They all range in diameter from 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. You will want to match the size to more naturally blend in with your own eye lashes. When you determine which types of eyelash extension you will want to use, semi-permanent glue is applied to hold the lashes in place. The glue should not irritate or damage the eye or your natural lashes. If you have experienced this in the past, we suggest that you do not use that salon ever again. There are cases of allergic reaction to the glue, but they are rare.

Eyelash Extension Application Techniques

Applying eyelash extensions can take up to two hours or more, depending on how many lashes are applied. They also require maintenance. Since the extensions are attached to your actual eye lashes, they grow and fall out along with your own lashes which means you will need to maintain and add new lashes over time. Proper maintenance should be done every three to four weeks.It is important to know that your own eye lashes will determine how many lashes can be applied, and at what length and size. It is important to be realistic about the results. It is recommended at first to apply a half set which is about 50 to 60 percent of your top eye lashes and add more over time to give your eyes and eye lashes time to adjust. Remember it is much easier to add more lashes over time than to remove lashes.

Some basic safety information will help prevent issues when you are having your extension done. First, always keep your eyes closed during the extension process. This will make it safer for your eyes. It is also important to know if you’re experiencing an allergic reaction and infection. Allergic reactions may occur and they may feel like a burning or itchy feeling. Make sure to tell the specialist that you’re experiencing these symptoms before continuing. Nothing should get in your actual eye. If this occurs, stop and rinse your eye out and see another spa for your eyelash extensions. It’s also safe and okay to wear makeup such as mascara. However be gentle when removing the makeup. Of course, the same rule applies with natural eye lashes. You don’t want to rip them out.
