You can make your lash fringe appear fuller, longer, and darker using eyelash extensions. These are semi-permanent fibers that are applied to natural eyelashes. Individual lash extensions will be attached to individual natural eyelashes (one at a time) using a semi-permanent glue.
The fiber material depends on the studio, but is usually made from mink, faux mink, synthetic, or silk. You should find a wide variety of curl patterns, extension lengths and tints at the studio to take your pick from.
EllEve Med Spa provides safe and proven non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic as well as health treatments to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.
Eyelash Extension Types
There are three common eyelash extension materials used by lash artists – silk, mink, and synthetic. Many studios carry the “faux mink” range that is nothing more than synthetic extensions mimicking mink extensions. You may not always get asked about the lash extension since the studio may carry only one type of extension material.
It is important that you let the studio know not to use mink lash extensions if you are allergic to cats or are vegan. There is no lash extension material that will last longer than the others. However, silk and mink lashes can offer a more natural look. Synthetic lashes are better suited for people wanting a bolder look since they are darker and thicker in appearance.
There are several degrees of curl and length to choose from. Lash artists generally use multiple curls and lengths to create a wide-eyed effect. They use longer lashes on the outer eye corners with shorter extensions on the inner eyelashes.
Application of Lash Extensions
Lash extensions are applied one at a time. Generally, each eye gets about 80 – 140 extensions at a time. The lash artist will use a specially-formulated, semi-permanent glue that is non-damaging and non-irritating in nature. Lash extensions are never applied to the skin and only to your natural eyelashes.
The lash artist at the medical spa will use tweezers to dip the end of extension in semi-permanent glue and apply it to individual eyelash. More than one lash extensions will be applied to a single natural lash if you want a more voluminous look.
Benefits of Eyelash Extensions
You can have gorgeously long and fluttering eyelashes with eyelash fills and extensions. Lash extensions look incredible on everyone and the process is effective at making your eyes look more appealing. The best part about them is that you can make the extensions look as dramatic or natural as you want.
Your lash artist will work with you to find the perfect curl and length of extensions. You will be asked to the keep the extensions dry for the first 48 hours. However, after that you can sweat, shower, and swim in your extensions.
Another benefit of getting eyelash extensions is that the process is completely painless. Most plastic surgeons, estheticians, and dermatologists agree that lash extensions are safe.
