If you are searching for an effective solution for achieving your perfect lash look, personalized eyelash extensions could benefit you.
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are customizable treatments that are designed to enhance lash thickness, length, and curl. The process utilizes synthetic lashes that are similar in appearance and texture as your natural lashes. The individual lashes can be made from silk, mink, or a synthetic material that is applied one at a time to the base of your natural lashes using a semi-permanent adhesive. This is effective at taking your lashes to new heights without damaging your natural eyelashes. If you are ready to achieve beautiful, full lashes without the endless time and money spent on maintenance, this specialized treatment could benefit you.
What to Expect
The extension process is very customizable and tailored to the specific desires of each patient. Prior to beginning you are able to select the thickness, curl, and length of your eyelash extensions. The length of extensions range from 6 to 17 millimeters. The most common length selected is usually between 10 to 12mm. You are also to choose which curl shape you would like including a “J” curl, or a “C” curl. If you would like, you can even mix and match your extension selections.
There are half and full sets of extensions to choose from. A half set provides a more natural look for first time patients who are wanting to ease into getting eyelash extensions regularly.
The treatment process can take up to 2 hours to apply a full set of lashes, and can be maintained for about a full year with regular touch-ups between every 3 to 4 weeks. It is important to avoid water for 12 to 24 hours after treatments to ensure that the lashes set properly.
There is no required downtime following treatment, and you are free to return to your daily activities while enjoying your long and luscious lashes.
We also offer microblading, which is a semi-permanent tattoo technique for the eyebrows. If you’re tired of thin brows, or applying makeup every morning to make up for overplucking, microblading could be a good option for you. Our skilled esthetician will match the perfect color for your hair and complexion to ensure your new brows are flawless.
We also offer Lash Fusion. If you are ready to achieve the lashes of your dreams, reach out to the professionals here at Artful Aesthetics located in Oakland, CA to learn more. Contact us today and schedule your consultation!
