Lash Extensions FAQs

Are Lash Extensions safe? 


Skin & Brow Room only uses professional grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes adhere about 1mm away from your skin.


Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions? 

Our eyelash extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an improved look of fullness so mascara is not needed. However, we do offer a water-based mascara in each of our Skin & Brow Room shops for those who feel the need especially nearing time for the next refill.


Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?

We do ask you to minimize the chance of wetting the extensions for the first 48 hours of wear. After that 48-hour period, the adhesive used to apply your eyelash extensions is secure enough to allow you to get right back to your routine. However, keeping away from extensive contact with steam such as in saunas or certain facials is recommended since it can begin to loosen the bond.


How do I take
care of my new Eyelash
Extensions?

  • Avoid sleeping on side or stomach.

  • Avoid picking, pulling, or use of mechanical lash curlers.

How long will it take to apply Eyelash
Extensions
and how is it done? 

 

 

How do I choose the
look I want? 

The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 60-120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 30-60 minutes for a refill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed while relaxing ambient music is played in the background. During application, your lower lashes will be covered and the extensions will be applied only to your upper lashes one at a time.


 

Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in and what look will work best with your natural lashes. The overall look of the lashes can range from very natural to voluminous!


Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service? 

Remove any eye makeup use an oil-free makeup remover to cleanse your lashes prior to the appointment as well to remove any leftover mascara. Right before the appointment you may be asked to cleanse your lashes with a mild cleanser to remove any leftover oils. Lashes should not be permed or manually curled at the time of appointment.


What happens if I choose
to have my Eyelash
Extensions removed?

We do offer a service to have the extensions removed involving a short thirty-minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the extensions without touching the skin and allowed to sit for 10 minutes. Once the adhesive is dissolved the extensions are gently wiped away with lint free applicators exposing the natural lashes.
