Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions FAQ's

ALL THINGS XTREME


Pre-appointment information:


Shower before your appointment. It is recommended that you do not get your lashes wet for at least 24 hours after your application.

Please do not wear any makeup, moisturizers or eye cream to your appointment. If you wear contacts, we advise that you wear your glasses to your appointment instead. You may resume wearing your contacts after your appointment. Avoid oil-based cleansers, lotion, makeup or eye-makeup removers while wearing Xtreme Lashes.


CARE & MAINTENANCE


Q: How do I take care of Xtreme Lashes®?

A: Though Xtreme Lashes® 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 and be gentle with the lashes. They are resistant to water, sweat and tears.

Your Lash Stylist should give you a detailed, easy care maintenance instruction manual following your procedure. In general, to maintain your new look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these simple guidelines:

* For the first 24 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 lashes; do not pull on the extensions or rub the eyes excessively.

* Avoid the use of oil-based products on or around the lashes 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. Ask your Xtreme Lashes® Stylist if she carries the Xtreme Lashes® water-based mascaras and Xtreme Eye Makeup Remover, specially formulated for eyelash extensions, or contact our customer service department at 1.877.BIG.LASH for purchasing information. Apply mascara on the tips only. Note: Xtreme Lashes® 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® and require more frequent touch ups.

* Ask your Xtreme Lashes® Stylist if she carries Xtreme Lashes® Protective Coating. 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®. 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®.


Q: Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Xtreme Lashes®?

A: 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 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 cure.)

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 loss.


Q: Do I need to use any special products on my Xtreme Lashes®?

A: 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 extend the lasting power of Xtreme Lashes®. Xtreme Lashes® 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® water-based mascaras and Xtreme Eye Makeup Remover, specially formulated for eyelash extensions. Additional curl can be safely added to the lashes as well with an Xtreme Lashes® Heated Eyelash Curler. Ask for these items from your local Lash Stylist or contact our customer service department at 1.877.BIG.LASH for purchasing information. Apply mascara on the tips only.


Q: Can I apply mascara to Xtreme Lashes®?


A: Indeed, one of the main advantages of Xtreme Lashes® 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® mascaras from your local Xtreme Lashes® Stylist or contact our customer service department at 1.877.BIG.LASH for purchasing information. 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® to fall off.


Q: How often should I get touch-ups?

A: A natural lash typically sheds every 60 to 90 days and is replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. Since Xtreme Lashes® are applied one by one to each individual hair, after 2-4 weeks, approximately 1/3 of the lashes will have cycled out. At this point, touch ups are required to replace the lashes that have completed their life cycle. Touch ups generally take a short time and are relatively inexpensive.


Q: What do I do if I want them removed?

A: As the natural lashes cycle out and shed, Xtreme Lashes® will shed with them. However, if necessary, Xtreme Lashes® can be professionally removed by a Lash Stylist using our specially formulated adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 15 to 30 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.
