After Eyelash Extensions Application What to do?

After eyelash extensions treatment it is normal to experience loss of some lashes during the first 24 to 48 hours as the eyelash extensions glue still setting, and this is a vital step for the long lasting eyelash extensions.

Clients must take extra care during this period and do not worry as approximately 100 lashes were applied on each eye. After the eyelash extensions treatment don’t wet the lashes especially during the 24 to 48 hours, as this will give the appropriate time to the glue to settle and dry completely.

The client should avoid steam rooms, saunas, swimming and cooking during this period. After the 24 to 48 hours the client can occasionally have a short visit to the sauna, but not on a daily basis, as this will cause the lashes to fall prematurely.

Important tips:

Do not use oil based mascara on your lashes, the ingredients in this type of mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and your lashes will fall out, although there will be no need for use of mascara.

Use cotton swabs to remove make-up by working gently around the lashes; do not use cleansers, make-up removers that contain oil or solvents on around the eyes; only use water based products, or plain water; avoid using cotton wool.

Do not tint the eyelashes extensions, if a client require eyelash tinting, it must be done before the eyelash extensions treatment; the tint will react with the glue and may cause allergies and further complications.
