WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions is an advanced technique that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. They are single strands of lashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. We use cruelty free high quality PBT synthetic lashes.
WHAT IS A FILL?
Fills are done every 3-4 weeks depending on care and how quickly your eyelashes grow. Everyones lashes grow at different rates and it is recommended to come in every 3-4 weeks to maintain the health of your natural lashes.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
This all depends on your own personal habits, day to day activities and up-keep. Most of our clients come in every 3-4 weeks before the lashes begin to look sparse.
WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
Yes and no.
Yes, your lashes can be damaged if applied from someone who is not properly trained with no experience yet.
No, lash extensions properly applied by a trained technician who uses quality products should not damage lashes. Our eyelash extension application techniques and innovative aftercare ensures your lash health.
WHAT IF I AM ALLERGIC TO THE ADHESIVE?
True allergic reactions do happen, but are rare. If you have developed an allergic reaction you may still wear extensions with some changes made to the aftercare process. Common issues such as eye infections are due to improperly washing and caring for your lashes. If you are unsure, we recommend a patch test.
CAN I GET THEM WET?
Yes, the adhesive is water proof. Just be sure to cleanse the lashes of chlorine or ocean water after swimming and before bed.
ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS SAFE WHILE PREGNANT?
Generally speaking, eyelash extensions are a safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure - SASS uses a high-quality, low fume adhesive which is manufactured specifically for cosmetic use near the eye, and the adhesive does not ever touch your skin - as the extensions are glued to the eyelash hairs. Allergic reactions to the adhesive are very rare and when they do present, are easily treated. In saying this, we do not recommend that a pregnant women who have never had eyelash extensions before test out the procedure during their pregnancy. Firstly, the lash extension procedure requires you to lay flat on your back for over one hour; a position that is not recommended for women in the advanced stages of pregnancy. It also requires that you lie quite still - which can be hard if you're heavily pregnant. Secondly, if you were unlucky enough to have an allergic reaction, your doctor may not be able to give you the required treatment due to your pregnancy, prolonging the reaction. However, if we have been doing your lashes here at SASS and you become pregnant, there is no problem continuing with the extensions, just let us know so that we can make sure you are comfortable at all times!
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
Please come to your appointment with no eye makeup on, such as, mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow or heavy concealer.
Use the restroom before your appointment. Do not drink a lot of water or any caffeinated beverages before your appointment! You will be advised to keep your eyes closed at all times during the process. Caffeine can make your eyes flutter.
Be sure to bring wear a mask to your appointment and fill out the Cover-19 Liability Waiver Form.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY APPOINTMENT?
Gently cleanse the eyelids and lash line regular every night with the Lash Cleanser provided to you.
Avoid harsh rubbing, tugging or pulling lashes when cleansing. Air dry lashes or gently pat dry with a lint free paper towel.
When applying facial and eye creams try to avoid the bottom eye area. Oil-based products can break down the adhesive when eyes closed.
It's best to not wear waterproof mascara or heavy eyeliner. Tight-liner is okay (eyeliner applied under lash line) and eye shadow liner.
Water based makeup wipes are best for makeup removal.
Appointments are required every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain your eyelash extensions. After 5 weeks + with out any visits will be considered a full set.
