Getting eyelash extensions is a big step for some women who desire to raise the level of their beauty regimen.
There’s a lot of info about what semi-permanent eyelash extensions are and are not. So to clear up the misinformation, we are addressing 3 Myths About Semi-Permanent Eyelashes.
#1: Eyelash extensions are glued to the eyelid.
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are NOT glued to your eyelid nor your skin. They are applied to the natural lash, close to the lash line, without actually touching it.
#2: I have to have them reapplied every day or every week.
Not true. Although there are many types of lashes, eyelash extensions are a semi-permanent beauty addition. Strips and individual lashes or clusters don’t last as long as professionally-applied, semi-permanent eyelash extensions. Strips last 1-2 days. Individual lashes and clusters,10-14 days. Semi-permanent, professionally-applied eyelashes can last up to 6 weeks (with fill-ins every 3 weeks). At the time of the fill-in, 40%-50% of the lashes should still be in tact.
#3: I can apply my own semi-permanent eyelashes like I do my lash strips.
We recommend that you go to a certified, trained eyelash expert, who is also a licensed aesthetician, to apply your semi-permanent eyelash extensions. Unlike lash strips that can be applied all at once by the wearer, semi-permanent eyelashes require precision and accuracy to properly set them and to avoid any burning and irritation with glue application. Speaking of glue, certified, trained lash experts use medical grade adhesive to apply your semi-permanent, eyelash extensions. Only professionals can work with this type of product. At iLash Charlotte, we use formaldehyde-free, medical grade adhesive for your semi-permanent eyelashes.
