What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are applications of single synthetic lashes one by one to each individual lash of your own to accentuate the beauty of your own eyes. The process is a semi-permanent one and results in a beautiful, lush and a natural extension of your own lash line. XXL Lashes are made to look identical to human lashes.
How is the procedure done?
You will lie in a relaxed position. Your lower lid eyelashes will be covered with a tape or a pad, to prevent, the upper lashes sticking to the lower ones. Then you close your eyes, as each synthetic lash is adhered to your individual lashes. This process takes approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending upon the amount of lashes applied. Each treatment usually involves attaching approximately 30-40 lashes per eye. When you open your eyes you will have long, naturally curved, beautiful lashes. XXL Lashes application is not at all painful; in fact it is considered one of the most relaxing beauty treatments available today.
How long will they last?
When properly applied, they will last the full cycle of your natural lash cycle. The life cycle of a natural lash is the amount of time it takes for a natural lash to grow in and fall out. A person's natural eyelash typically falls out every 60-90 days and is naturally replaced with a new eyelash. The maximum time XXL Lashes last is 2 months, however it is not unusually for clients to loose a lash extension if it is placed on an "old" lash. Due to this cycle, "eyelash fills" are recommended every 2-4 weeks so as to fill in the areas where new lashes are growing in.
