Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions are the newest revolutionary eyelash treatment which transforms your lashes into longer, thicker, curlier natural looking lashes.
Semi Permanent eyelash extensions take approximately 2 hours to attach and involve synthetic lashes being bonded to your own lashes with an invisible seal that gives the impression of beautiful long, thick eyelashes. The effect instantly opens up the eye, giving an antiaging effect. Clients can opt for a glamorous thick look or natural for a natural everyday look, either way eyelash extensions are extremely versatile and easy to maintain.
I use high quality synthetic mink eyelashes which are 70% lighter than the standard synthetic mink extensions often used by others. Clients notice the difference straight away when compared to previous extensions they may have had in the past. These extensions are soft to touch, virtually weightless and look wonderfully natural.
Eyelash extensions will mean the end to clumps and smudges caused by Mascara and is the perfect solution for clients who are active as the extensions are suitable for the gym, sauna, swimming pool.
What will happen during my appointment?
Your appointment will begin with a consultation before the treatment begins during which we will discuss your desired look I will assess your eye shape and lash condition to determine the style best suited to your look. You will also have the chance to have your queries answered.
Once we have both agreed on a style that suits you, you will be given a consent form and medical form to fill in and the treatment can then begin. Cooling collagen infused eye pads will be applied to you under eyes and cover your lower lashes to separate from your top eyelashes, your eyes will then be closed until the treatment has been completed.
As long as you have not had any previous allergies to adhesives then a patch test is not needed for this appointment as the adhesive used goes not come into contact with your skin.
A typical eyelash appointment will take around 1hr 30 minutes to 2 hours for classic, 2hrs- 3hrs for Russian Volume. Once your treatment has finished I will ensure you understand the aftercare and maintenance routine. At this stage we can book you in for your 2-3 week maintenance refill. On booking, all eyelash appointments require a 50% deposit which will be deducted from your final bill.
Do eyelash extensions cause any damage to my natural eyelashes?
No, eyelash extensions will not cause damage to your natural eyelashes if they are applied correctly by a trained professional. Before the treatment begins a full assessment of the eyelashes is carried out, during which I will assess your lashes and create a bespoke set using the correct lengths and weights you can wear safely. You should be able to comb through your individual lashes with none stuck together, they should feel weightless and soft and never cause you any pain or irritation.
Do I need a break from having infills?
No, not if a professional has correctly applied. Many client wear perfectly applied eyelash extensions for years before having a break. I recommend that clients return for infills within the time set scheduled and do not attempt to remove the extensions as this will damage and cause harm to your natural lashes. I offer an eyelash extension removal service and can advise the best serums to use in conjunction with your eyelash extensions.
What is a lash shed?
It is good to be aware that there are certain times during the year were our eyelashes shed, this is during the spring and autumn seasons. During this time you may find that your eyelashes do not last as long as the extension is attached to your natural lash and therefore will also fall out with the lash shed. To overcome this you may need to schedule your refill more frequently, the shedding normally will last 2 weeks therefore 1 additional refill maybe needed.
The Eyelash extensions will shed with your natural, below is a guide of what to expect over a 4 week period:
After 7 days you will lose 21 extensions
After 14 days you will lose 42 extensions
After 21 days you will lose 63 extensions
Please note, it is also common to experience a small loss of lash extensions during the first 24hours of your appointment, this often consists of 5 per eye and is completely normal.
To keep your eyelash extensions looking at their very best it is important to return for your maintenance refill every 2-3 weeks.
Do you offer a mobile eyelash service?
I do not offer a mobile service, the reason for this is because the temperature and humidity must be controlled to ensure you are being provided the best possible eyelash treatment with long lasting bonds. In my treatment room I ensure the recommended conditions are followed (as recommended by the adhesive manufacturer) which would be out of my control in someone else’s home.
What is a refill treatment?
A refill treatment is recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep your eyelash extensions looking at their best.
During a refill appointment I will remove extensions that have grown out or twisted and replace any those that have shed with your natural lash. We shed approximately 2-5 natural eyelashes per upper lid, per eye, per day, I will replenish your extensions by apply approximately 100 extensions to your natural lashes of each eye.
Pre advise check list
Your eyelash extensions should last between 2-4 weeks, however the below advise will need to be followed in order to achieve this level of retention.
Pre Advise for your Eyelash extensions:
• Do not wear any waterproof mascara 24 hours prior to the treatment and avoid taking off with an oil based make up remover.
• Avoid drinking coffee before your treatment, as this makes clients restless and make the eyes flicker making it difficult to apply extensions
• Do not have a spray-tan less than 24 hours prior to your treatment.
• Do inform me of any recent fillers or botox
• Turn off mobile phones during your treatment. You will be unable to check them once we have started as your eyes will be closed.
• Eyelashes must be kept dry for 24 hours after the appointment therefore it is advisable to have a shower and wash your hair before you come for your treatment.
Aftercare for your Eyelash extensions:
• Do not get extensions wet for the first 24 hours. This allows the adhesive to cure (dry)
• Do not use steam rooms, saunas or sunbeds for 48 hours
• Do not perm, tint or use eyelash curlers
• Do not use waterproof or oil based mascara on your extensions as they contain chemical properties that will break down the adhesive
• Do be gentle around your eyes, don’t rub or pick at your extensions
• Do use an eyelash comb or mascara wand, these are great for grooming your lashes each morning. Ensure to be careful of the bonds when combing.
• Do gently wash daily with eyelash cleanser, keeping the root area clean (Baby shampoo diluted with water)

To clean your lashes as part of your aftercare you will need the following:
• Lash Cleanser, such as a baby shampoo diluted with water.
