How long do Lash Extensions Last?
Semi-permanent Extend Your Lashes can last up to 2 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. You will probably want touch-ups every three to four weeks.

Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure.
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two to four weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.
Can I apply Lash Extensions to my own eyelashes?
No. Only a trained professional will be able to safely apply Eyelash extensions.

Extend Your Lashes specialists are trained and certified to apply one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick, luscious, and natural looking eyelashes.
Can I apply mascara to Lashes?
One of the main advantages of Lash Extensions is never needing mascara again. However, if you must have the mascara look, only water based mascara can be used. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause the lashes to fall off.
