Eyelash extensions are a semi-permanent solution for women looking to dramatically enhance their short or sparse lashes, and rid themselves of the hassle of messy mascara. Eyelash Extensions are lightweight, synthetic eyelashes that come in a huge range of lengths, thicknesses, curl styles and colors. They are expertly bonded to your own natural lashes using a FDA safe surgical-grade adhesive manufactured specifically for eyelash application. Your new lashes will be longer, thicker and more luscious than ever. To keep you lashes looking as fabulous as when they were first applied a regular 2-5 week refill is necessary. Eyelash extensions are weightless, wonderful and truly transformative. Each eyelash application is a work of art with an intricate finish courtesy of our Certified Eyelash Artist.
A full set of lash extensions are applied in a classic and/or volume technique using a physician-developed, medical grade adhesive that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lashes. Application can take between 2-3 hours depending on the look desired and the condition and number of natural lashes. Based on this a customized application the lashes applied will fit perfectly with your natural lash length, fullness & condition. Lashes can be maintained year-round with Refills recommended every 2-5 weeks.
Full Set of Lash Extensions
Around 70-120 lashes are applied to the entire upper lash line. Total application time is 2 hours. Lash Extensions give the appearance of luscious full, black, curled lashes that are perfect for any lifestyle.
Extra Lash Time- This is a 30 minute add on that can be applied to any new Full Set of Lash Extensions for $30 if you desire a fuller & thicker set of lashes.
Silk Extensions - mid-weight lash extension that is fine and flexible. Because they are softer and more porous, they tend to hold on slightly longer than synthetic lashes. They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous. These extensions come in a variety of curls, weights and lengths
and are a great option for a more natural look, as the curl is not generally as uniform or as 'plasticky' as synthetic lash. These stunning and natural
lashes can be used in either the Classic or Volume Lash Techniques.
Mink Extensions - are faux-mink, man-made fibers, designed to imitate real mink fur. They are light weight, fine, soft, and silky extensions that feel exactly like natural lashes. They are shinier in texture than silk lashes which give them a glossy look and come in a variety of curls, weights and lengths. These extensions are very long lasting, and great to use if your own lashes are fine, weak or sparse. Because they are so fine, the surface-area-ratio between your own lash and the extension is much closer to 1:1 (with synthetic it can be 1:2 or even higher) so they last longer. These beautifully natural and fluffy lashes are perfect to use with the Volume Lash Technique.
Classic- The classic look (or traditional extensions) are for individuals who prefer a more subtle and natural appearance. These basic extensions are sometimes referred to as “1-Dimensional” or “1-D,” because the process involves carefully attaching a single thick, dark eyelash strand to each existing lash. This simply enhances the lashes, giving each a darker and more curled appearance without compromising the eye’s natural appearance. These extensions are perfect for anyone looking to add a basic level of enrichment.
Volume - Volume lashes (or multiple dimension extensions) provide a more glamorous and full look. The process entails attaching 2-8 (2D, 3D, 4D, etc.) ultra-light weight fanned shaped extensions (which are extremely thin, dark, and feathery) to each lash. This creates a soft yet extremely voluminous appearance that does not overload or damage your natural lashes. These extensions are ideal for those who wish to add some glam to their appearance and those with naturally thin or light-colored lashes.

Recommended every 2-5 weeks. Keeps lash extensions looking fresh, full and fabulous. Natural lashes have a growth cycle of 60 to 90 days and they are continually growing and shedding. When a set of lash extensions are applied each natural lash is at a different stage in the growth cycle. Therefore when the extension is bonded onto the natural lash it grows with and sheds off with the natural lash. Refills are the process of replacing extensions that have shed off and also adding extensions to any new lash growth. In order to maintain a full set of lashes refills are required every 2-5 weeks depending on each individual’s growth cycle and style being maintained. As long as they are properly cared for, lash extensions can last indefinitely.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
The initial procedure to attach the extensions takes between 2-3 hours for a full set of eyelash extensions. This includes consultation, cleansing of your lashes, applying the lash extensions, and discussing aftercare. When you return for refills, the process takes around 60-90 minutes depending on the number of weeks between appointments.
HOW DO EYELASH EXTENSION REFILLS WORK AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET REFILLS?
A natural lash typically sheds every 60 to 90 days and is replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. The lash extension is bonded to each individual natural lash; therefore the extension grows out with the natural lash. After 2-4 weeks, approximately 1/3 of the lashes will have cycled out. At this point, refills are required to replace the lashes that have completed their life cycle.
HOW DO I EXPAND THE LIFE OF MY EXTENSIONS?
Maintaining healthy eyelashes is ideal for long lasting eyelash extensions. Eyelash growth serum in conjunction with eyelash extensions promotes strength and support to ensure the health of the natural lashes. The serum conditions the lashes, enabling the lash to stay in the catogen phase for a longer period of time. The lash sealant is an additional product sealing the area between the natural lashes and the lash extension, creating a protective barrier against oil, perspiration and debris. These products will maximize the life of your lashes and furthermore your lash extensions.
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 application process is pain-free and relaxing that most clients fall asleep during the procedure. However, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. We recommend only using a Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist.
DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE THE NATURAL LASH?
NO, not at all. The specially formulated adhesive has been specifically made for human lashes and it dries softly, flexible, and comfortable. Eyelash extensions and their bonding agent have been FDA approved and are not governed by the state board of cosmetology. Be good to your lashes and your lashes will be good to you. Treat them gently and with respect and your lashes will fall out only when they are ready to.
HOW DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS DIFFER FROM TRADITIONAL FALSE LASHES?
The biggest difference between the two types is that eyelash extensions are applied directly on to an individual single natural lash one lash at a time. Eyelash extensions will leave lashes looking natural. The traditional false lashes are made in a strip or with multiple lashes knotted together. They are applied on to the skin on your eyelid often they feel heavy and unnatural and looking like fake eyelashes. Traditional false lashes last only a few days to a week whereas eyelash extensions can last long as 2 months.
CAN I SWIM, SHOWER, EXERCISE OR VISIT A SPA WHILE WEARING EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Provided you follow the simple maintenance instructions, are not involved excessively in heat or water activities, and treat the lashes with care they will last through the natural lash life cycle. You can swim, shower and spa as usual so long as these activities are not engaged in excessively.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA TO EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Eyelash extension is that you don’t have to use mascara. Mascara can be applied between maintenance to maintain a look of fullness. 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 Eyelash extension to fall off.
WHAT DO I DO IF I WANT THEM REMOVED?
As the natural lashes cycle out and shed, Eyelash extension will shed with them. However, if necessary, lashes can be professionally removed by your eyelash tech by using a specially formulated adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 30-45 minutes for a full set. Never try to remove eyelash 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.
I HAD EYELASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED SOMEWHERE ELSE AND I AM UNHAPPY WITH THEM, CAN I GET THEM FIXED AND/OR REFILLED AT THE SPALASH SPOT?
At The SpaLash Spot our Eyelash Artist prefers not to mix their work with other peoples work. It is advised that you either allow your extensions to naturally come off or contact The SpaLash Spot to discuss the options of having the extensions removed prior to your appointment in order to have a new set applied. If your eyes are red and sore from the incorrectly applied eyelash extensions that were applied elsewhere, we would advise resting your eyes from extensions for approximately 3-4 weeks before having a professional set reapplied.
