Frequently Asked Questions - Lash Extensions at Dream Esthetics

  1. What are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic or mink lashes that are carefully applied to your natural lashes, enhancing length, thickness, and curl.

  2. How long do lash extensions last? The lifespan of lash extensions varies, but on average, they can last between 4 to 6 weeks. Regular touch-ups are recommended to maintain a consistently full and beautiful lash appearance.

  3. Are lash extensions safe? Yes, when applied by a trained and certified professional, lash extensions are safe. At Dream Esthetics, our technicians follow industry best practices to ensure the health and safety of your natural lashes.

  4. Do lash extensions damage natural lashes? Properly applied lash extensions do not damage natural lashes. It's important to follow aftercare instructions and avoid rubbing or pulling on the lashes to maintain their health.

  5. How long does the application process take? The application process typically takes between 1.5 to 3 hours for a full set of lash extensions. The duration may vary based on the desired look and the number of lashes being applied.

  6. Can I wear mascara with lash extensions? No, wearing mascara on top of your eyelash extensions will break down the adhesive bonds, causing poor retention.

  7. Can I swim or shower with lash extensions? Yes, you can engage in regular activities like swimming and showering with lash extensions. To ensure better retention please give your lashes a lash bath everyday and after rigorous activities. 

  8. How do I care for my lash extensions? To prolong the life of your lash extensions, avoid oil-based products, refrain from rubbing or pulling on the lashes, and schedule regular touch-up appointments. Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided during your appointment.

  9. Can I get lash extensions if I have allergies? Individuals with allergies can still get lash extensions, but it's crucial to inform your technician about any allergies during the consultation. 

  10. Do I need a patch test before getting lash extensions? While patch tests are not mandatory, we recommend discussing any concerns or sensitivities with your technician during the consultation. This allows us to choose the most suitable products for your unique needs.

  11. How do I remove lash extensions? Lash extensions should be removed by a trained professional to prevent damage to your natural lashes. Attempting to remove them at home can lead to breakage and loss of your natural lashes.
