AFTER CARE instructions for eyelash extensions:
It is very important to follow these instructions thoroughly!
Please note: not following these instructions may result in your lashes become loose of fall off.
THE FIRST 24 HOURS:
DO NOT get lashes wet in order to allow glue to dry thoroughly.
AVOID hot steam from the shower and sauna.
LEAVE THEM ALONE. Be gentle with your new lashes.
Do not rub your eyes excessively.
Do not wear any mascara or use an eyelash curler.
Do not wash them!
AFTER 24 HOURS.
AVOID RUBBING ACROSS YOUR NEW EYELASHES!
AVOID ANY CLEANSERS, CREAMS, LOTIONS OR EYE MAKEUP REMOVERS. These products will dissolve the eyelash bonding agent. Instead, use plain WATER to clean your eyes in the mornings or removing shadow/eyeliner. You may wish to use a Q-tip dipped in warm water to gently remove eye makeup around the lash line. Sometimes water does not remove some types or eye-shadows / eyeliners, use a drop of Johnson’s Baby shampoo diluted with water and Q-tip to remove make-up from your top lids.
DO NOT USE MASCARA. The ingredients of mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and your lashes will fall off. Special mascaras for eyelash extensions are available at Mia Bellezza Spa if desired. Apply special mascara only on your lash tips, not at the base of your lashes. Application at the lash base may break the lash and/or create a clump of mascara in your lash line.
Again, most women do not feel the need to apply any mascara at all. If you accidentally drop some powder on your lashes, simply remove with a Q-tip moistened in plain water in order for your dark lashes to reappear again.
BE CAREFUL IN SHOWERS/SWIMMING POOLS/SEA: Your eyelashes are going to be waterproof, water is not going to dissolve the bond, but if water gets in to your eye our natural reaction is to rub our eyes, what will make eyelashes to become loose. It is recommended to wear protective goggles or big sunglasses taking showers.
AVOID USING A MECHANICAL EYELASH CURLER. Also, a heated eyelash curler sparingly. Prolonged heat to the lashes may cause them to come loose or melt. Your new lashes have a curl so you might not feel need in using it.
SCHEDULE A “TOUCH-UP” PROCEDURE IN 3 WEEKS. “Touch-ups” or “refills” are highly recommended in order to maintain a full, lush lash line. They take less time than an initial application and are at a reduced price.
