Eyelash extensions are imitation singular lashes that get precisely dipped in glue and painlessly adhered individually to each natural eyelash. The result? Having beautiful, luscious lashes all the time. Now available at True MD, lash extension procedure will have you feeling relaxed and fabulous so that your TRUE beauty shines brighter.
HOW IT WORKS
The goal of the practice of applying these synthetic mink lashes is to enhance the length, thickness and fullness of natural eyelashes. They are applied individually, or one-by-one, so that they mimic the shape and spacing of real eyelashes. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are not the same, however. Eyelash extensions must be applied one by one to avoid having them stick together and to ensure they look completely natural.
The three most common types of extensions are silk, mink, and synthetic. Silk might sound luxurious while “synthetic” is a dirty word in many beauty circles, but synthetic mink extensions are your best bet if you’re a first timer. Fun fact– did you know Beyoncé wears mink lashes?
Every eyelash extension treatment and procedure is customizable to each patient’s preferences and goals. During the initial consultation, patients will have the option to choose between ‘c’-shaped lash curls, ‘j’-shaped curls or a combination of both for that cat-eye look.
Have we mentioned how luxurious the process it? Your lash extension specialist at True MD will have you lie down comfortably and close your eyes in order to begin the procedure. No anesthetic needed, this procedure is non-invasive and is painless. Most admit they feel so relaxed that they fall asleep (check out the hashtag “lashnap” to see just how many do) during their first full set, 2 hour procedure.
There is no recovery time and the treatment is painless and non-irritant. After the procedure, however, your specialist will walk you through aftercare for the lashes including basics such as not wearing eye makeup or washing them for 1 full day.
BENEFITS & RESULTS
The benefit to eyelashes extensions is waking up every day with your lashes looking fabulous! You can swim, exercise, shower, sleep and wake up and still look luscious and flawless. Ideal for the woman who is constantly on the go.
Since the eyelash extensions fall out as the real eyelashes naturally shed, results can last anywhere from a few weeks to a month depending on the person’s lashes and unique procedure. A fill, or touch-up every 1-3 weeks is recommended to retain the shape of the lashes.
