Some common questions we get about eyelash extensions:
WHAT ARE LASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are synthetic fibers strategically cut into individual strands to mimic the look of natural lashes. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural lashes. Eyelash extensions are applied with Fuzion Artistry's special technique which is a classic style or volume style. When clients choose the classic style, the single strand of eyelash extension is applied one by one, to each individual natural lash. With our proper application, lash extensions look and feel natural and comfortable.
HOW LONG WILL A SET OF EYELASH EXTENSINS LAST?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of your natural growth cycle of your own lashes. However, it also depends on your daily activity, natural oils, and life style. All of these factors play a big role in the longevity of your lashes. On average touch ups are done every 2-4 weeks.
ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS SAFE?
Yes, if applied properly. At Fuzion Artistry we use our own high quality faux mink lashes and high quality adhesive to ensure that clients maintain a healthy lash wear. Our Fuzion Lash team ensures that they apply the eyelash extensions one-by- one about 1mm away from your skin.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA TO EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
We do not recommend applying mascara to our lash extensions. Our Eyelash Extensions are designed to give your natural lashes an enhancement so you will not have to use mascara on them. However, we do offer our clients a product that helps maintain the longevity and gives the Eyelash Extensions the look of mascara.
CAN I SWIM, SHOWER, EXERCISE, OR VISIT A SPA WHILE WEARING EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Yes! You can wear these eyelash extensions and treat them as if they are yours. Keep in mind for the first 24-48 hours after getting your lashes done, you do want to stay away from these activities so that the adhesive has time to dry. Also, by doing some of these activities it may cause your eyelash extensions to loosen faster, therefore touch ups maybe sooner then normal.
HOW SOON CAN I WASH MY FACE AFTER EXTENSIONS ARE APPLIED?
We suggest you wait 24-48 hours before getting your eyelash extensions wet after your application. After that time period we do recommend all clients to wash their lashes on a daily bases. Keeping your lashes clean will help with the longevity and health of your natural lashes.
HOW DO I DRY MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
After cleansing your lashes, use a lint free tissue or paper towel and blink onto it. The tissue will soak up most of the water. After that, take your disposable mascara brush and gently brush through them. You can then take a little fan to completely dry them or you can let them air dry.
IS THE PRODUCT FDA APPROVED? IS IT SAFE?
Currently, the FDA is not regulating eyelash extensions because the eyelash extensions are applied to the natural eyelash hairs and does not touch the skin.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO APPLY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
The application process for eyelash extensions normally takes 90-120 minutes for a full set and 45-60 minutes for touch up.
CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN STYLE OF LASHES?
During the consultation process, one of our artists will advise which style suits you best.
DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPAREFOR THE SERVICE?
Make sure you do not come in with any eye makeup. The cleaner your natural eyelashes are when you come in the better and faster the application will be. If you are coming from work and cannot remove your eye makeup before coming in, please come 15 minutes prior to you appointment time so that we can give you cleansing products to remove it. Lashes should not be permed or curled prior to your appointment time.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CHOOSE TO HAVE MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS REMOVED?
We do offer a service to have the extensions removed involving a short 30 minute appointment in which we apply a gel remover and remove your lash extensions.
Permanent Makeup FAQs
Some common questions we get about permanent makeup:
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The longevity of your results will vary based on your Skin type, Health, and Lifestyle. On average our clients come back annually for a touch-up.
DOES IT HURT?
We do use a needle to apply the permanent makeup, so a certain level of discomfort is inevitable. Most clients explain the feeling similar to getting your brows tweezed very fast. Once the numbing takes place many clients feel very relaxed.
HOW LONG IS THE APPOINTMENT?
The length of your appointment will vary dependent on the artist. We schedule your appointment for 2 hours. Some artists can accomplish the procedure in an hour and some artists take the full 2 hours.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Our artist will shape your brows with you. You are welcome to come with them drawn in the way you like or cleaned off ready for one of our artists to do their magic. In the week before your appointment, we recommend avoiding blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol or using retinol creams. Because we value you the safety of all of our clients, we do ask that you enter our facility with good hygiene.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Initial healing takes 6-10 days. Fully healed brows take about 30 days.
WILL I NEED A TOUCH-UP?
Every skin type will accept the pigment a little differently. Knowing this, we give a complimentary touch up with all new permanent make up appointments.
CAN I GET PERMANENT MAKEUP WHILE PREGNANT/NURSING?
NO. We do not recommend having a permanent make up procedure done during a pregnancy or while nursing.
