Though Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions are easy to maintain, the first twenty-four hours are crucial for a strong bond. You should keep your lashes dry and avoid touching them. After twenty-four hours, care is fairly simple: avoid oil based products, cleanse your lashes regularly and be gentle with the lashes. They are resistant to water, sweat and tears.
Lady’D Studio will provide you with easy After Care Instructions following your procedure. In general, to maintain your new look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these simple guidelines:
For the first 48 hours after application the lashes should not be exposed to water or steam to allow the adhesive time to fully bond. We recommend avoiding swimming and the spa for 48 hours after lash application for best results.
Be gentle with your eyelashes; do not pull on the extensions or rub the eyes excessively.
Avoid the use of oil-based products on or around the eyelashes and do not use waterproof mascara. Water-based mascara and water-based mascara remover may be used if desired. Apply the mascara sparingly and remove it gently with a water-based eye makeup remover.
Apply mascara on the tips only. Note: Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions are ideally suited for individuals who want longer, fuller lashes without the need for much additional eye makeup. Constant application of heavy eye makeup, particularly mascara and eyeliner, may reduce the lifespan of your Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions and require more frequent touch-ups.
You can apply Protective Coating once or twice per week on your new lashes to preserve the look and extend the life of your Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions. Brush on from the base up to the tips. This coating also gives the lashes a wonderful shine!
We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks to maintain maximum fullness of your Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions?
You can enjoy these eyelashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Provided you follow the simple after care instructions and are not excessively exposed to heat or moisture, they will last through the natural lash life cycle and fall off with the natural lash, not before. You can swim, shower and spa as usual so long as these activities are not engaged in excessively. (Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the adhesive to fully bond.)
A competitive swimmer who is constantly in the chlorinated water may lose some lashes earlier than the average person as may someone who gets very frequent facials (weekly) or goes into the steam room daily. Doing an above average level of activities related to heat or constant water exposure may weaken the adhesive bond, causing some early lash extension loss.
Do I need to use any special products on my Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions?
There are no products that are required to be applied to the lashes. Optionally, consumers can use Xtreme Protective Coating®, which acts as a sealer on the adhesive, creating an even stronger bond to the natural lash. It can be applied one to two times per week on the lashes to enhance the strength of Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions. Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions especially recommends this product to those clients with oily skin or those who do not carefully maintain their lashes.
If you choose to wear mascara we recommend using one of the Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions water-based mascaras and Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions Eye Makeup Remover , specially formulated for Lash Extensions. Apply mascara on the tips only. Additional curl can be safely added to the lashes with an Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions Heated Eyelash Curler.
Can I apply mascara to Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions?
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions is that you never need mascara again. However, if you must have the mascara-look, only water-based mascara can be used. You can purchase one of our specially formulated Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions mascaras from Lady’D. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil-based mascara will dissolve the adhesive and cause your Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions to fall off. If you choose wear a water-based mascara, apply it on the tips only.
What do I do if I want them removed?
As the natural lashes cycle out and shed, Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions will shed with them. However, if necessary, Xtreme Lashes® Lash Extensions can be professionally removed by Lady’D Studio using our specially formulated adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes for a full set. Never try to remove Lash Extensions on your own. Damage can be caused by pulling the extensions off with the natural lash, removing the natural lash before it is ready to shed.
