Learn about Eyelash Extensions and Find Out if they are a Good Option for You!
I’ll examine this much talked about process of eyelash extensions and also give you the low-down on how to care for your eyelash extensions.
EYELASH EXTENSIONS PROCEDURE
Eyelash extensions are applied individually by hand to each of your own lashes by a licensed cosmetologist, aesthetician, and permanent makeup technician. This procedure is very delicate and takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. Your eyes must remain closed, which is not the easiest task for some people. Normally a person's natural eyelashes fall out every 60 - 90 days and new lashes grow in immediately. It is necessary to get touch-ups to fill in the fallen lashes about every 2 to 3 weeks; however, this will vary with each person. Your natural lash cycle as well as how you take care of your lashes will affect how long your lash extensions will last.

EYELASH EXTENSION TIPS
Remember these important rules about your eyelash extensions:
Care must be taken to apply eye cream sparingly while avoiding the lash line area. Water soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the life-span of your lashes. Don’t use waterproof mascara, as it will dissolve the bond with lash extensions. Many lash extension artists use medical grade adhesives, which are said to be totally safe around the eye area. Eyelash extensions are said to be safe for contact lens wearers as well.
