Tips and Care

Common Questions

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are a way to extend the length and thickness of your eyelashes for a more striking, flattering look. They are applied hair-by-hair to your own eyelashes for a completely natural appearance.

How long do they last?

About 2-4 weeks if you take care of your lashes. Your natural lash life cycle is between 3 and 4 weeks so the extension that is attached to it will fall off at the same time. The exact time they take to grow out depends on each person. Your lifestyle and what work you do will also affect how long they last. If you work where there is a lot of heat, for example, lashes may not last as long.

How long do extensions take to apply?

The procedure takes just over an hour for a full set, about 45 minutes for a half set and 1 hour for touch ups. It is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration so that our clients leave with a perfect set of lashes. Just relax with your eyes closed and feel free to fall asleep.

Can I do eyelash extensions myself?

No. Eyelash extensions can only be applied by a trained professional.

Are the eyelash extensions glued to my skin?

No, it is adhered approximately 1mm from the eyelid

Is the eyelash glue and glue remover safe?

Yes, in the hands of a trained professional it is perfectly safe. Beware of untrained providers who may not be aware of proper procedures and hygiene. Yuki Lashes specializes in eyelash extensions and we take great care to ensure that the glue we use is high quality and applied by a trained and qualified eyelash professional.

Do eyelash extensions make my lashes fall out more quickly?

No. It is important to have your lash extensions applied by a qualified professional who uses quality products. Your eyelashes are constantly being replaced and replenished just like your hair, which the extensions do not affect.

Please remove any mascara.

Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment.

If you wear contact lenses please bring your contact lens case as your lenses will need to be removed.

I had eyelash extensions applied somewhere else and I am unhappy with them can they be fixed?

At Yuki Lashes we prefer not to mix our work so it is advised that you either allow your extensions to come off naturally or we can remove the prior extensions before your new eyelash extension appointment.

If your eyes are red or sore from eyelash extensions that were applied elsewhere we would advise resting your eyes from extensions for approximately 3-4 weeks before having a professional set applied at Yuki Lashes

How do I care for my eyelash extensions?

• Avoid getting your lashes wet for 12 hours
• Do not use a steam room or sauna for the first 24 hours
• Be gentle and avoid rubbing your eyes.
• Resist the temptation to touch or pull at your new lashes.
• When drying your face do not rub instead blot your face and apply gentle pressure to your closed eyes then allow the extensions to dry naturally. Do not dry with towel or hair dryer.
• Do not perm or curl the extensions using clamp eyelash curlers
• Avoid wearing mascara since this will lessen the life of your extensions
• Do not use eye make-up remover that contains oil products.
• Keep the area around your eyes clean. Do not avoid normal cleaning, just be gentle
• Use cotton swabs to remove make up by working gently around your eyelashes
