What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness, direction, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes (NL). They can help correct lashes that are misdirected and provide a treatment for individuals whose natural lashes are not as great as they would like. The extensions may be made from synthetic material such as cashmere, silk, velvet, faux mink, and authentic mink lashes. Individual eyelash extensions are applied using the method of dipping the base of the synthetic lash (SL) into a small amount of adhesive, and applying it to the natural lash using a tweezer. There are a variety of methods used for application. The lashes are placed directly on the natural lash with base-to-base security at least 0.05mm from the eyelid. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are not the same thing; they are extremely different in the sense that strip lashes are applied for an evening with weak strength glue that can easily peel off or come off in water. When individual eyelash extensions are applied, extremely strong medical grade adhesive is used, meaning they can stay on for 3-4 weeks before needing an infill. 1-2 natural lashes will fall out each day; therefore, the synthetic lashes will fall out as well.
