We care about your lash health here at Geo. There are so many misconceptions and concerns regarding lash extensions and we feel that it is our duty to educate our clients on proper lash care both, before and after, receiving your lash enhancement services. Joohee is an licensed esthetician and certified by Bella Lash to correctly apply your eyelash extensions. She also regularly receives online training to further expand her knowledge on proper lash care and the safest techniques to keep your lashes healthy and beautiful.
What type of lash extensions do you offer?
We offer synthetic silk lashes that are vegan and cruelty free. Size availability ranges from 8mm to 15mm. We offer curves L, J, B, C and D. Once selected, the lashes are applied to your natural lashes using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. We source all of our products from Bella Lash, LashBox LA and Illumino lashes.
How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes about 2.5 hours, and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every two to three weeks.
How dramatic can I go with my lash extensions?
Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, we can only go a certain length or thickness. (This is to ensure that your own lashes remain healthy.) For example, if your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you won’t be able to get an intense and dramatic Kim K look, because it won’t last. It’s better to start out with a half set (50 to 60 percent of your top lashes) if you aren’t sure or it’s your first time. It’s easier to add more than to remove lashes!
What happens if glue gets in my eyes?
Since your eyes are shut the whole time lash extensions are being applied, no glue will ever get into your eye. To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde.
Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.
Can I go blind as a result of an allergic reaction?
No. Your eyes are closed the entire time of the procedure. No matter how bad an allergic reaction may get, you will not go blind. The worse case scenario is that you need to go to the eye doctor to get specific eye drops to treat an allergic reaction.
What happens if my eyes start to tear up?
If you experience any burning or discomfort during the procedure, causing your eyes to tear or making you cry, this is a huge red flag and you should certainly speak up. You may be having an sensitivity reaction to the glue. Getting lash extensions should be a completely pain-free experience.
How often do you need to get lash extensions redone?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically about 5 -7 weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (lash hair growth), we suggest light lash maintenance every three weeks to maintain a full look.
Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. We recommend a touch-up every three weeks.
When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself, which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact.
Will my natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.
