FAQ's

Are Extensions safe?
I Am Beauty only uses pharmaceutical grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Synthetic eyelashes are adhered about 1mm away from your skin.

What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are a popular new service and product that when applied correctly it safely lengthens and thickens your own natural eyelashes. Lash Extensions are single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate your natural eyelashes. They are applied to each individual natural eyelash one by one for a natural, beautiful and luscious look. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for day to day wear and or a special event.
Volume lash extensions safely adds a fuller, plush, dramatic look to your eyes.  The difference is instead of having a 1:1 ratio it is a 2-3:1 ratio perfect for special events or everyday pop to the ordinary.

Do I have to do anything to prepare for the service?
Thoroughly Remove all make up. You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Make sure any oil be removed from your natural lashes.  Do not use oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled (unless directed otherwise by your technician) and all mascara should be removed


How do i take care of my new Eyelash Extensions?
  • Do not get lashes wet for at least 24 hours

  • Avoid hot steam or saunas

  • Avoid running water directly on your lashes

  • Do not rub your eyes

  • Only use water based mascara to maximize the life of your lashes

  • I applying mascara do so from middle to tip, avoid root/base of your lashes

  • Use water based eye makeup remover ( oil free is the best )

  • Do not perm your lashes

  • Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler

  • Do not pull on your lashes ( this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely )


Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?
Yes.  The bonding agent we use is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc.  Special care is required but, overall maintenance is low.  We do recommend however that you do not use heavy water, such as in the shower and when having a facial performed your lashes are protected from the steam Aestheticians routinely use.

Is the product FDA approved?  Is it safe?
Currently the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelashes are applied to the natural lashes and do not touch the skin.  The application process is pain-free and relaxing so much that most clients fall asleep during the service.  However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes.  We recommend only using a Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist with an Aesthetics license a very important thing to consider when it comes to your only pair of eyes.

Can I use eyelash curlers with my eyelash extensions?
Throw this old damaging method out the window for it will no longer be needed when you are sporting around your new set of lashes.  Each set is specifically customized to your natural lashes and will have a curve that will retire that old and damaging eyelash curler !
 
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 - 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Not to mention we do loose in average 2-5 lashes naturally everyday.  Other factors such as exposure to steam, make up products, and touching your eyes a lot may cause the extensions to fall sooner. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen. Touch ups average about 45 minutes.

Post Care Instructions

In order to maximize the life of your eyelash extensions, please follow these after-care instructions:

• Wait 24 Hours before steaming face, using steam room, saunas, hot tubs, or swimming. Please DO NOT face shower head when showering.

• It is recommended to apply a protective coating once or twice per week (minimum) on your new lashes to preserve the look and to extend the bond of your eyelash extension glue. Brush on from the base up to the tips. This coating also give the lashes a darker, glossier shine! Ask your technician about recommended products for this purpose.

• Do not ever use waterproof mascara on eyelash extensions. The ingredients in waterproof mascara will break down the bond of the glue. In addition, the removal of waterproof mascara requires an oil-based solution for removal. This type of solution or cleanser will break down the bond of the glue.

• If you must wear mascara on your eyelashes, it is said to lightly apply non-waterproof mascara to the tips of the extensions. However, please note that use of mascara will break the bond of your eyelash extension adhesive and may fray extensions. This will result in a higher extension loss rate. If choosing to use mascara, it is crucial to use a NON-OIL BASED remover as oils will loosen extensions and shorten the lifespan of your extensions.

• Only use oil-free (that means water-based products only) products to remove eye make-up. When removing eye area makeup, use a cotton swab or moistened towelette to gently cleanse the area.

• Do not use an eyelash curler on extensions, as it may break the bond of your extensions as well as causing your natural lashes to break or be damaged.

• If you would like to remove your eyelash extensions, please schedule an appointment. Attempting to remove extensions yourself is NOT RECOMMENDED, as it may cause breakage or loss of your natural lashes, as well as an eye and eye lid irritation. Eyelash extension removal includes a lash conditioning treatment to maintain the health and integrity of your natural lashes.

• Please schedule fill appointments accordingly. Due to the natural life cycle of your natural lashes and your own lifestyle you can expect to need refills every 2-3 weeks.
