Lashes FAQs:

Lash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic eyelashes that are applied to your natural lashes on a 1:1 ratio with a liquid adhesive. A full set of lash extensions dramatically enhances the appearance of your eyes by lengthening and thickening your eyelashes, without the need for mascara.

Xtreme Lashes, as a company, is dedicated to the safe and hygeinic application of eyelash extensions. Only professionals can purchase Xtreme Lashes products and must participate in the company's hands-on training and certification prior to using them on clients. Xtreme Lashes products are of the highest caliber, due to the company's continuous dedication to rigorous manufacturing standards and their investment in product development.

When applied correctly, Xtreme Lashes look and feel as if they are your own lashes. Each lash is made of practically weightless synthetic fibers that are polished, sized, and curled for a natural look and feel.

With proper application, care, and touch-ups every two weeks, Xtreme Lashes can last indefinitely. Without regular touch-ups, a full set of lashes can last up to two months. That's because the life cycle of a natural lash is typically two to three months, during which time it grows, remains "at rest," and then falls out. Once it falls out, it is replaced by the growth of a new lash. At any given moment, your lashes are at different stages in the life cycle, which is why touch-ups should be performed every two weeks — to replace the lashes that have naturally fallen out.

Yes. Xtreme Lashes are applied with a surgical-grade adhesive formulated with the same ingredient used in sutureless wound procedrues. The application is a safe, pain-free procedure that does not damage your eyes, lids, or lashes. However, it is important to make sure your Xtreme Lashes are applied only by a Certified Xtreme Lashes Professional. Ask to see his/her certification to be sure!

Yes, but one of the primary advantages of Xtreme Lashes is that you don't need mascara. However, if you decide to wear mascara, we recommend Xtreme Lashes Mascara, which has been specifically formulated for use with Xtreme Lashes and is guaranteed not to interfere with the adhesive bond. Never use waterproof mascara.

There is little or no need to change your lifestyle; you can still swim, shower, exercise, and sleep worry free with your Xtreme Lashes. Below are tips to maintain to extend the life of your Xtreme Lashes and maintain their optimum appearance.

  • Showering, swimming, exercising, tanning, or cleansing your face
  • Using saunas, steam rooms, spas, or other steam- or heat-producing equipment
  • Applying cleanser, creams, or makeup to your eye area
  • Using Xtreme Lashes Heated Eyelash Curler
  • Excessive use of saunas, steam rooms, spas, swimming pools, or tanning beds
  • Cleansing the eye area with oil-based cleansers (use Xtreme Lashes Eye Makeup Remover only)
  • Using waterproof or oil-based mascara
  • Excessive use of water-based mascara (apply Xtreme Lashes Mascara sparingly to the tips only)
  • Using mechanical eyelash curlers
  • Using Xtreme Lashes Heated Eyelash Curler on the base of the lashes (use to shape the tips only)
  • Excessive use of Xtreme Lashes Protective Coating (apply sparingly once or twice a week)
  • Using cotton balls, rounds, or swabs on your lashes (use sponges or lint-free applicators)
  • Applying acidic substances, like chemcial peels, to the eye area
  • Pulling, picking, sleeping on, or excessively rubbing your lashes

Make sure that your eyelids and lashes are completely clean; use a water-based cleanser to remove makeup and mascara. Also, if you have contacts, do not wear them to your appointment. Finally, do not curl your lashes. Following these steps will ensure the extensions will optimally adhere to your lashes.
