Aftercare for Longer Lasting Eyelash Extensions

July 22, 2018

You’ve just received eyelash extensions from a Certified Xtreme Lashes® Lash Stylist and they look amazing! Immediately after seeing yourself in a mirror, you may wonder how you can prolong this beautiful lash look. The answer is simple: perform correct aftercare.

Aftercare right after your appointment

After your appointment, basic makeup application and normal lifestyle routine can resume. To facilitate a more flexible, longer-lasting bond and to minimize potential irritation or adverse reactions, your Lash Stylist will ask you to  avoid the following 5 activities within the first 3 hours:

  1. Avoid exposure to excessive steam or water.
  2. Avoid exposure to excessive heat.
  3. Avoid spray or airbrush tanning.
  4. Avoid wearing or inserting in contact lenses.
  5. Avoid using non-Xtreme Lashes cosmetics and skincare products that may come in contact with your extended lashes.

Daily aftercare procedures

When it comes to daily or continuous aftercare for longer lasting eyelash extensions, your strategy is simple: only use specially formulated eyelash extension compatible Xtreme Lashes cosmetics and skincare products AND avoid the following:

  1. Avoid using waterproof cosmetics (i.e. mascara or eyeliner) on or near extended eyelashes.
  2. Avoid using mechanical or heated eyelash curlers.
  3. Avoid excessive mascara application.
  4. Avoid using an eyelash sealer or mascara if your eyelash extensions were applied using the Volumation® technique as this may cause clumping or loss of volume.
  5. Avoid excessive exposure to friction, excessive rubbing of eyes, and picking/pulling on extended eyelashes.
  6. Avoid chemical eyelash treatments such as eyelash tinting or perming.
  7. Avoid using non-Xtreme Lashes cosmetics and skincare products that may come in contact with your extended lashes.

Other aftercare considerations

To prevent damage to your eyelash extensions, care should be taken when receiving any of the following facial procedures:

  1. Strong chemical peels or skin resurfacing procedures that come in direct contact with the eye area.
  2. Facial treatments and facial massages that include direct contact with the eye area and extended eyelashes.

Always inform your esthetician or medical provider that you are wearing eyelash extensions before any facial procedure begins.
