This is a semi permanent type of foundation. The first 4 sessions are booked from 3-7 days apart to maximize the setting of the foundation. After the initail treatment touch ups are needed to be done between 1-3 months depending on your home skin care routine.
ARE LASH EXTENSIONS PERMANENT?
No lash extensions are not permanent. Lash extensions are considered to be semi permanent meaning that they will shed out with your natural lash cycle or if improper after care is followed they may detach from your natural lash and fall off on their own.
Lash extensions will last varying times for each individual – things that can factor into this is after care being followed, oil based products used near or on the lash extensions, stress, hormones, daily life activities (sweating a lot and not washing lashes- the salt in the sweat may break down the adhesive sooner), medications, dry or oily skin…..the list goes on and on. Please see our blog post on this.
Here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC we follow all proper state guidelines and requirements along with being properly trained and licensed for every service that we offer. Please reach out to us with any questions that you may have at 970-231-6513
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSION THAT YOU OFFER?
Here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC our lash artists have been trained in classic and volume lash extension application along with ongoing advanced training. In this ever changing industry we want our lash artists to on the cutting edge of new techniques and the advanced that are taking place in this evolving industry.
We currently offer
Classic lashes- one lash extension to one natural lash
Volume lashes- where 2-10 lash extensions are applied to one natural lash
Hybrid lashes- where a combination of classic and volume lashes are applied to your natural lashes
We also offer colored lashes, ombré lashes, glitter lashes, special occasion lashes.
All of our lash extensions are semi permanent and we do not use cluster lashes nor lash strips. Cluster Lashes are not the same as lash extensions- cluster lashes and strips are made for very short term wear (1 to 3 days ) and can damage the lashes if left on longer or improperly applied- adhesive should never be used to apply cluster or lash strips only the specific glue that is sold with them should be used to reduce the risk of harming your natural lashes.
WHAT IS A PATCH TEST AND DO I NEED ONE?
Here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC we recommend a patch test before your first full set of lashes. We offer this service free of charge to all of our clients. A patch test usually take about 15 minutes to preform and is recommended to have done at least 3 days before your full set is applied.
When you come for your patch test – EVERY product that we are going to use during a lash set and fill will be applied in small proportions to your lashes and surrounding area. This is along with a few lash extensions being applied to your lashes as well. It is helpful if you do not have makeup on during this time. Photos will be taken as a reference for where each product was applied- this is useful to your lash artist if you do have a reaction so that they can pin point what product that you are having a reaction to.
It is not recommended to come in for a patch test during high allergy season (if your natural allergies affect your eyes) this can give a false positive for reactions. Also if you have a cold or the flu or have had recent eye surgery we ask that you schedule your patch test for a different time.
It is also recommended to not be changing medications or your normal eating habits during the 72 hours of your patch test or again you may get a false positive for an allergic reaction.
Please call us to schedule your free lash consultation at 970-231-6513
WHAT DOES AN ALLERGIC REACTION LOOK LIKE?
Here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC we want all of our clients and potential clients to be well informed of any service they are having preformed on themselves.
Allergic reactions can vary person to person. For one individual itching and redness may be a sign of an allergic reaction where another person may have extremely swollen eyes. If you believe your are having an allergic reaction contact your lash artist to have your lash extensions removed. If it is a severe reaction seek medical attention immediately.
Patch testing (see our blog post) may help determine if you are allergic to any of the products that will be used on you during your lash set or fill. But people may also develope an allergic reaction overtime while wearing lash extensions. Talk to your lash artist to see if a patch test is recommended for you.
Allergic reactions may come in the forms itching, redness, swelling around your lash line/eyes.
During times of the year when allergy season is full blown there may be other causes to itching and watering, red eyes. If you are prone to allergies you may have a heightened sensitivity to any products used on you during this time. Some of our clients may choose to have their lash extensions removed during peak allergy times of the year to reduce their personal allergic reaction to the environment around them.
If you are not sure what is happening with your lash extensions reach out to your lash artist for advice- more than likely they will need a photo up close with no makeup on of your eyes and lashes and may request that you come in to the office so they can look at your lashes.
We will be more than happy to assist you with any questions that you have on this topic. Please call or text 970-231-6513
CAN I BE ALLERGIC TO LASH EXTENSIONS???
The answer to this questions is yes you can be allergic to lash extensions-but generally you are allergic to the adhesive that is used to place the lash extension to your natural lash; due to the fact that they lash extensions we use are synthetic – not made from mink or horse hair.
Unfortunately once you have had an allergic reaction to the adhesive you will always be allergic to lash extension adhesive. At this point in time all of the semi permanent lash adhesive contains the same active ingredient.
If you have an allergic reaction to this ingredient more than likely it will continue to get worse with each application.
If you believe you are having an allergic reaction contact your lash artist and they can assist you. If your allergic reaction is severe you want to reach medical attention immediately.

HOW LONG CAN I WEAR LASH EXTENSION FOR?
This is a question that we get frequently here at Eye Do Lashes 4u LLC. The answer is not set in stone and can become confusing- we will give some basic information here but please have this conversation with your lash artist in person.
Due to the fact that every person is different- hormones, lash cycle, aftercare, daily life and on and on- there is not a certain time limit or time frame that can be stated. Our lash artists have clients that have been wearing lash extensions for over 12 years with no problems and then we have other clients that can only wear lash extensions for special occasions like weddings and holidays/vacations and then need to have them removed. The desicion for lash extensions is going to be based solely upon that natural health of your natural lashes. If you have fine and weak lashes you may not be able to wear extensions for extended periods of time or even at all. Even with strong healthy lashes you may not be able to wear them safely long term if you don’t follow proper aftercare.
However most people can wear lashes long term by following proper aftercare (see our blog post) and having your lash artist inspect the health of your lashes at every appointment. Here in our office we take before and after photos at every appointment so that we can reference to them when needed.
If your lashes are not in the best of shape ask your lash artist about growth serums that they recommend.
Reach out to us with any questions that you may have at 970-231-6513
HOW LONG BETWEEN LASH FILLS CAN I GO?
Every persons lash growth cycle is different (see our blog post). Your fills are based on your lash cycle and your aftercare (see our blog post on this as well). With most people they will require lash fills every 2-3.5 weeks to keep their lashes looking full. Your lash artist here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC will work closely with you and document every appointment to find the correct time frame for your individual lash extensions.
Generally most people will schedule lash fills at the 2-2.5 week mark following their last last appointment. These appointments usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour- but again will depend on the condition of your lashes coming in.
In order to be considered a lash fill we require that it has not been longer than 4 weeks since your last lash fill and you have 30-40% of the extensions that were applied to your natural lash left.
Please contact us with any questions that you have regarding your lash fill appointment time. 970-231-6513
MY LASHES HAVE A CYCLE???? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Here at Eye Do Lashes 4U LLC we want you to be as informed as possible about your lashes. Every person has a lash cycle and every persons lash cycle is a little bit different. Your lash artist will go over this with you during your consultation or first appointment.
There are 3 stages of lash growth Anagen. Catagen. Telogen. OK great – what does that mean 🙂
Anagen is the process that happens when the lash is growing and “baby” lashes or new growth can be seen. These lashes are not generally lashes by your artist. They are fragile – still growing- and need to grow stronger before being lashes. Once your Anagen lashes hit the “teenage” part of life they can generally be lashes safely. This stage “Anagen” is reffered to your lash the entire time it is growing and then your lashes are in the Catagen stage.
Catagen the roots of your lashes start to disintegrate- they have reached there full growth. These lashes are almost always lashed by your artist.
The 3rd and final stage of your lashes is the Telogen phase- this is when that lash is “dead” basically it is hanging out on your lash line waiting for the next Anagen lash to start growing and push it out. These lashes are the ones that your body is naturally shedding.
Many factors can affect the length of each stage of your individual lash cycle. Hormones, diseases, stress, products, season changes, diet/nutrition, age, pregnancy and so on.
Your lash artist will work with you to the best that they can to help you figure out what your cycle is and how often that you may need to come in for lash extension fills.
