FAQ’s

 

What are semi-permanent eyelash extensions?

They are synthetic individual eyelashes and come in different lengths, thickness, and degrees of curl. They will give you a fuller, darker lash line wthout the need of mascara. You won’t feel you are wearing them, and no one will be able to tell that you weren’t born with them.

Why should I get semi-permanent eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions instantly give you sexier, younger and refreshed-looking eyes. You will wake up looking lusciously lashed and find that you have a lower-maintenance beauty routine, as you will no longer need to curl and apply coats of mascara. Extensions can even protect your own lashes from the damage caused by curling and mascara application.

What is the process of getting and maintaining eyelash extensions?

The application process is very relaxing – like receiving a spa service. You lie down on a plush table and have your eyes closed the entire time. Your technician will glue one synthetic lash extension to one of your natural lashes with medical grade glue. When your natural lash sheds, the extension will fall out with that lash. To maintain a full appearance, it is recommended to get a refill every 2-3 weeks. Your initial full set takes around 90 minutes, and refills can be done in as little as 30 minutes.

What type of adhesive does iLash Guru use?

Our skilled technicians only use medical-grade adhesive to apply semi-permanent eyelash extensions. Derma-bond technology (used by physicians to bond skin together) is the bases for the structure of our eyelash extension adhesive. It has been specially formulated to work on sensitive areas of the body, such as the eye, to reduce skin irritation. The special formula is longer-lasting, has less fumes and is more water resistant than other inferior products. iLash Guru eyelash extension adhesive is formaldehyde-free! Our medical-grade adhesive contains Ethyl -2-Cyanoacrylate (which makes the solution fast bonding), Polymethyl Methacrylate (for extra hold) and Carbon Black (for the dark mascara-like color).

We also offer a sensitive adhesive for our clients with delicate eye areas. The sensitive adhesive contains formulated Cyanoacrylate and no Carbon Black to reduce fumes and possible irritation. Allergic reaction are rare occurrences and are usually the result of incorrect eyelash extension application, seasonal allergen or improper at-home care. Clients are advised to remove contact lenses prior to an eyelash extension application.
