4. How are the eyelash extensions attached and how long does it take? Does it hurt? Photo left is before eyelash extensions.
Daoudi: The procedure is pain-free and will not harm your eyelids or natural lashes. Xtreme Lashes™ are never applied directly to your eyelids. It takes between 1.5 to 2.5 hours to complete a full set depending on the actual number of lashes and skill of the technician.
5. How are they removed and how long does it take?
Daoudi As the natural lashes cycle out and shed naturally, Xtreme Lashes™ will shed with them. However, if necessary, Xtreme Lashes™ can be removed using our specially formulated adhesive remover, which normally takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
6. What sort of limitations are there to wearing eyelash extensions? I.e. what about swimming, contact lens wearers, eye makeup, mascara, eye creams, eyelash curlers, etc.
Daoudi There are a few precautions that you must take after getting Xtreme Lashes™
6A. Are there special products that your require the customer to apply to their eyelashes? Why?
Daoudi: 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.
7. Is it possible to have an allergic reaction to the chemicals in the glue? Where else is this glue used?
Daoudi There have been no known instances of clients with an allergic reaction to our adhesive. Xtreme Lashes™ are applied using a surgical grade adhesive formulated with the same ingredient used in suture less wound procedures (where adhesive is inserted into an open wound to close the wound). During the procedure an anti-wrinkle gel patch is used under the eye to hold the lower lashes in place while the upper lashes are being worked on.
There have been rare instances of clients reporting slight itching from the gel in the anti-wrinkle patch but nothing more than a minor irritation. We recommend to our professionals that they use our paper medical tape in lieu of the gel patches if they find a client is sensitive to fragrances or certain types of cosmetics.
