SEGUIN FAMILY MEDICINE AND MEDISPA
Eyelash extensions are individual lashes, made of silk, mink, or something synthetic, that are attached to your existing lashes semi-permanently.
You lie down in a bed and close your eyes for an hour and a half while calming music plays in the background and a technician attaches little feathery nothings to your lashes.
You can choose the length. We carry extension lengths from 9 to 15mm.
After you pick your length, pick your curl. A “J” curl is for a more natural, awake look, while a “C” curl is a more dramatic, If you want to get creative, you can do “J” on the inner corners of your eyes and “C” on the outer edges for a more cat eye look.
Now, in terms of material, you have a lot to choose from: Faux Mink, Faux Fox, Silk, Real Mink, and last but not least, Real Human Hair. Our aesthetician will go over the choices with you.
With proper care, your lashes can last up to a month and a half. We recommend you come back every 2-3 weeks for a touch up, but if you’re looking to save a bit of money, you can prolong their lifespan. Just be careful not to get water on your lashes and don’t use oily products near your eyes.
4. Yes, you can wear makeup with them. Only liquid-based eye products can be damaging to the extensions, but you can get away with a tiny wing of liquid liner as long as you're not dragging it along the lash line. Make sure to carefully remove the shadow or liner with oil-free makeup remover and Q-tips for precision. Most importantly, stay away from mascara entirely as it leaves the extensions crusty and damaged. It's only acceptable if you're at the end of your cycle and will be getting a fresh set in a few days.
Having the extensions removed is as easy as having them put on–painless and relatively quick. The extensions do fall out with the natural shedding of your lashes, but is a much slower process. Don't try to pull out the extensions yourself–not only is it extremely painful but it leaves you with few to no natural eyelashes left. Growing your natural eyelashes back can take up to a month and a half.
