What style lashes give the most volume and what style lashes give glamour? What should I know about eyelash extensions? Red Lotus Skin and Lash Salon in Portland, Oregon talks about eyelash extensions.
What to expect from lash extensions?
Lash extensions instantly give you longer, fuller, darker, more precise looking lashes. One by one, perfectly curved individual synthetic lash strands are attached, root to tip, to each of your natural lashes and not to your eye lid. They feel virtually weightless. Even up close, it is difficult to tell that they aren't your natural lashes. There is no need to wear mascara; your lashes are dark, thick, and separated without clumps and the hassle of mascara.
How long do lash extensions last last?
To keep your lashes full and abundant looking, we recommend getting Touch-ups every 3 to 4 weeks. Your extensions will shed with your natural eyelashes cycle. During touch-ups, new extensions are applied to the new lash growth to replace any lashes that may have shed. Natural eyelashes grow in and shed in a 60-90 day cycle, and we shed approximately 1 to 2 lash per day, per eye. Look great with your lashes day and night- shower, swim, play all while having voluminous, smudge proof lashes.
Are lash extensions safe?
Yes, absolutely! Red Lotus Lash Specialists are certified and highly skilled professionals. The process is a comfortable, relaxing experience. In fact, some clients are so comfortable they fall asleep. Our cutting edge methods and products ensure our clients safety. The adhesive is made from the same ingredients used in surgical sutures and is formulated specifically for lash extensions. Red Lotus uses only formaldehyde-free products.
What is the maintenance for lash extensions?
Some special care for your lashes is needed, over all maintenance is low. Most important- come in once a month to have your lashes touched up. Depending on the rate your lashes grow, some clients will need to come in anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. Keep your lashes clean and free of creams, oils, and don't rub your eyes.
Can lash extensions damage my lashes?
A qualified, experienced professional should not damage your lashes. At Red Lotus, we frequently see poorly applied extensions with clumps and globs of glue performed elsewhere- even from reputable spas and salons. We have heard and seen it all. If you currently have eyelash extensions we'd be glad to consult with you. Some extensions or clumps may need to be professionally removed. This consultation only takes minutes and helps us give you the lashes you've been looking for.
