Get Minked by Angela
Frequently Asked Questions
`What do you use to adhere the extensions to the lashes? We use a US medical grade adhesive that specially made for eyelash extensions and is safe to use near the eye, it does not touch the skin and is used in such a small amount you don't even see it.
`How long does the procedure take? The application process takes between 1-1 1/2 hours to apply the initial set. Mega Volume Can take 2 hours. Fill-ins take 45-60 min.
`How long do eyelash extensions last? Eyelash extensions will last the term of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. This varies per person. It can be anywhere from 2-5 weeks depending on where you are in your cycle, We recommend fill-ins every 2-4 weeks depending on the set you have to keep your lashes looking full.
`What kind of lash extensions are they? We use a synthetic mink lash extension. They hold the shape of the curl well. They are lightweight. They are very soft and they are matte. I love them because they are realistic looking. They aren't shiny and plastic looking. And they aren't Real mink as I have found real mink to lose its curl not be uniform in curl and to cause allergic reactions. We use a synthetic mink lash at Eyelashes by Angela.
`Will the extensions damage your natural lashes? The extensions do not cause any damage to your natural lashes. only YOU can cause damage to your lashes by rubbing or pulling at your lashes, the extensions are so lightweight you wont even feel you have them on. If you rub them or pull them you are obviously going to pull out your own lash as well it is an EXTENSION applied to your own lash and it is adhered very well, the extension is meant to last the life of your natural lashes cycle. meaning until it falls out on it's own for a new lash to grow in.
`Can I get them wet?
yes. After the initial 24 hours you may get them wet. you should keep them clean. you can wet them in the shower daily, you can swim and continue life as you would normally.
Do's & Don'ts
The Do's and Don'ts of Lash Extensions:
Don't put you face near any extreme heat! Stay away from extreme heat in the oven or frying foods. If you smoke do NOT light you cigarette near your face. heat in those extreme temperatures will straighten the curl of the extension and it can not be curled again. The extensions will need to be removed and a new set applied and you WILL be charged for this.
Don't get them wet within the first 24 hours.
Don't get anything oily on the extensions.
Don't wear mascara
Don't put anything on the extensions that you did not purchase from Eyelashes by Angela.
Don't sleep on your face smashing the extensions.
Don't rub your eyes or pick or pull at the extensions. they are attached to your own natural lashes if you pull pick or rub at them they will also rub pull or pick off your natural lash. This is the only way they can damage your natural lash is if YOU cause the damage yourself.
Do keep them clean of makeup oil and dirt. Wash them daily with water and a mild soap. Water is your friend. They will not just fall off. Oils and makeup will break down the bond. Clean extensions last longer. If you think by not cleaning them you re saving them you are WRONG.
Do be mindful and gentle the are attached to your own natural lash and you don't want to cause any damage to your natural lash so just be mindful and the better you care for them the longer they will last.
Do brush your extensions at least once daily. You want to keep them all straight in a row and not let them get tangled or crossed it can start to hurt and can pull at your lashes letting them get crossed.
