Semi-Permanent Eyelashes FAQ’s
What Are Xtreme Lashes™?
Xtreme Lashes™ is a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Xtreme Lashes™ are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time, for a natural, elegant and luscious look. Xtreme Lashes™ is perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
How long do Xtreme Lashes™ Last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent Xtreme Lashes™ can last up to 2 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes and the expertise of the technician applying the eyelash extensions. You will probably want touch-ups every two to four weeks. Xtreme Ultra bonding agent which is only to be used by Advanced Xtreme Lash Stylists, is specially formulated with a unique waterproof bonding agent to last. Imitation glues may not last as long because of an inferior bonding strength. You can also purchase our specially formulated Long Life Coating to prolong the life of the Xtreme Lashes™.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Xtreme Lashes™?
Yes. Our specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing Xtreme Lashes™. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure.
Can I apply Xtreme Lashes™ to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Xtreme Lashes™. Unprofessional application or self-application may cause eye injury or clumpy, unnatural looking lashes. Xtreme Lashes™ are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes.
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.
Can I apply mascara to Xtreme Lashes™?
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Xtreme Lashes™ is never needing mascara again. However, if you must have the mascara look, only water based mascara can be used. You can purchase our specially formulated Xtreme Lashes mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause the Xtreme Lashes™ to fall off.
How do I take care of Xtreme Lashes™?
Your new Xtreme Lashes™ are long, thick and beautiful! Once applied, they last up to 2 months. Best of all, they are easy to maintain. To maintain this look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these easy care instructions:
- Do not wash eyes or shower for 24 hours after lash application. Do not swim or spa for 48 hours after lash application to allow adequate time for bonding.
- Be gentle with your lashes.
- Avoid rubbing your eyes.
- Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara. Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used. Use mascara sparingly and gently remove mascara with water-based eye makeup remover.
- We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks.
Can you describe the application process?
You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while Xtreme Lashes™ are applied individually to your natural eyelashes. The treatment generally takes between 90 to 150 minutes to apply one set of Xtreme Lashes™. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep. Touch ups can be done in as little as 30 to 60 minutes.
Who uses Eyelash Extensions?
Hollywood has long since enjoyed extending their beauty with Eyelash Extensions. Models and actors have been using eyelash extensions for years. Now, you can have them too. Because they look so real, anyone could be wearing them and you would never know! Be the first in your area to wear Xtreme Lashes™.
Is the product FDA approved? Is it safe?
Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and do not touch the skin. The primary ingredient in our HP-3 glue is the same ingredient used by plastic surgeons in the U.S. for suture-less wound closure. The application process is pain-free and relaxing. In fact, many clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified technician can cause damage to your eyes and eyelids. Do not trust your eyes to any technician.
