What everyone wants to know
Here you find some answers to some of the most common questions that you may ask about eyelash extension and lamination – keratin lift or eyebrow microblading and henna services. Its always good to get prepared and have an overall knowledge , before you decide for the best beauty treatment for you.
The eyelash extensions we use , is made out of PBT, so its a 100 % synthetic material.
(synthetic silk & synthetic mink)
We say NO to animal cruelty, and would never use real mink fur on anyone.
It’s hard to say!
To be honest, i see no point counting them ,and rather go by the fullness my client wants and what her natural eyelashes allow me to do . Some ladies have 1 layer of natural eyelashes while others are gifted with 4 layers .
Generally speaking, we can do a Light set of eyelash extensions in 1 – 1,5 hours , medium set in 2 hours and full russian volume lashextension set in 2,5-3 hours.
As Eyelash Extensions are made by hand , fanned out and applied individually with great care to 1 of your natural lashes, with proper application & aftercare it could last even up to 7-8 weeks.
Factors like oily skin, oily skincare products, hormonal changes, usage and not proper removal of makeup, or lack of eye hygiene will have a negative effect on retention and weakens the bond , resulting in premature loss of the extension.
The eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash and should never be glued to the skin. Its a perfectly safe treatment. It is pain-free, with the inconvenience that both of your eyes have to be kept close during the treatment.
Most of our clients consider the process relaxing and even sleep through the appointment.
Microblading is not really painful and 99 % of the time, we do not need to use even topical pain relief. We can compare it to a paper cut.
Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. It can start fading anywhere from 8 months to 2,5 years . Greatly depends on skin type, shade of color used, sunbathing habits, skincare and lifestyle.
Extreme sunbathing, or skin whitening does affect the microblading in a negative way.
Usually we recommend a yearly touchup to keep it nicely shaped.
Todays permanent makeup pigments are formulated in a way, that they will not turn to awkward colors like purple, green or pink.
These pigments are not the same as the ink for body tattoo, as its specifically is formulated for the face.
It is a hard task to cover an old PMU but we can do it in many cases with microblading, as long as it has faded into a workable shade already.
I have worked with quite a few of these old type of tattooed brows and achieved a result that looked much more attractive on my clients.
Microblading & Microshading are the best options for clients without eyebrows or having big gaps of missing brows.
