Am I a good candidate for eyelash extensions?

Anyone looking for fuller, thicker, longer lashes is a perfect candidate! Especially if you are tired of flaky mascara and raccoon eyes caused by mascara running.  As long as you have some natural eyelashes, you will be a great candidate for this procedure.

You are not a good candidate for eyelash extension if you have recently completed or are currently undergoing chemotherapy, have alopecia, or who suffer from Trichotillomania or Trichosis. Or if you have eye condition where the eye does not look healthy or if you have an adhesive or latex allergy. If you are unsure if this applies to you, consult with your Ophthalmologist for a recommendation or schedule a FREE consultation.

What happens during an eyelash extension appointment?

Prior to the treatment, you will attend a quick free consultation with Carah to determine if you are a good candidate and what shape and style works best for you. During the appointment, you will lie back with your eyes closed and Carah will apply a paper adhesive to protect your eyes. Then, using a medical grade adhesive and tweezers, Carah meticulously attaches a single false lash to a single natural lash so the new lash appears to be coming from the root. This technique creates a seamless look and feel as if these eyelash extensions were your own.

How long is an eyelash extension appointment?

A typical appointment for a full set of lashes takes 90-120 minutes. Fill in procedures only take 30-60 minutes.

Which eyelash extension products do you use?

Carah is a trained Certified Lavish Lashes Professional. Lavish Lashes are semi-permanent professional quality synthetic lashes. They look and feel natural and are not affected by normal showering, swimming or trips to the spa.
