We have all heard the saying that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The cosmetic world takes this saying seriously, where they have introduced numerous products that help enhance the look of your eyes. Among these products are the eyelash extensions, which provide a natural looking enhancement to your face.

Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty trend, and they aren’t just for celebrities. The reason they are so popular is that extensions help the natural lashes look fuller and healthier without the tiresome task of applying mascara. They are the answer to looking fabulous in the early morning without spending too much time on makeup.

Benefits of Eyelash Extensions

Lash extensions are semi-permanent, and unlike the temporary lashes strip, a technician glues them in with your natural lashes. If you’re thinking of getting those selfie-ready lashes, this is what you need to know about them!

  • The most obvious benefit is that you don’t have to wear mascara to get beautiful, full looking lashes.
  • These lashes are incredibly customizable because they don’t come as a strip. They can have a real look to suit the density and length of your natural lashes. Additionally, you are free to choose a lash length that works best for you.
  • When given proper care, the lashes can last up to 9 weeks, after which they fall off naturally. To ensure maximum life for your extension, avoid getting them wet for the first 24-48 hours as water can cause the glue to weaken.
  • Though tweezers may be used close to your eye when adding the extensions, you don’t have to worry as the process is painless.

Length of Procedure

The initial eyelash application takes about two hours, after which recommended touch-ups should be every two weeks, and the touch up can take an hour. This can vary depending on what all you need.

Eyelash Extensions and Mascara

With eyelash extensions, you can ditch your mascara, especially when you are in a rush. If you feel like adorning a few mascara strokes, you’re more than welcome to. However, you will need to be sure to use a water-based mascara that is easy to remove. Otherwise, you may find yourself removing your new extensions by accident!

The Lasting Effect of Eyelash Extensions

There is no link showing that eyelash extensions have long-term health effects on your natural lashes. However, it’s crucial to find professional application services to avoid improper application and care to prevent long-term damage to your lashes. Prysi Cosmetic Surgery is a reputable and highly skilled firm that takes all safety measures to ensure that their customers look stunning and feel comfortable.

Beware that even though extensions are physically safe in an inexperienced technician’s hands, they can become a disaster quickly as an improperly trained technician may be tempted to use too much adhesive, resulting in unnatural looking lashes. The extension adhesive also needs to be a medical-grade, non-irritating, and formaldehyde-free glue.
