Eyelashes also change with age and become thinner, shorter, less numerous and also paler and less pigmented. Some individuals complain of thin, pale, short or otherwise poorly visible eyelashes.
Long, dark, thick eyelashes are considered a sign of beauty and are thought to enhance the overall appearance of the eyes in most cultures. Thanks to the development of many modern eyelash products, women now have options to enhance the appearance of lashes.
Types of lash extensions
Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes, single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one lash at a time and vary in length and thickness depending on your desired style. They can be applied to look natural or dramatic. Eyelash Extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as for every day wear.
Eyelash extensions can be temporary, or there are surgical methods. Temporary methods involve either the use of at-home kits or a visit to an aesthetician trained in eyelash extensions.
At-home kits tend to involve bunches or strips of lashes applied at once and tend not to be as long-lasting. Those done in a salon usually involve individual application of lashes. It is important to have eyelash extensions done by a well-trained individual, as strong glue is used which can damage skin or eyes if not used correctly.
Both synthetic and natural animal hair lashes, such as mink, are used. The effect can last several weeks. Eyelash extensions allow patients to determine the exact length and degree of curl of the lashes. Local lid skin reactions and eye irritation are possible because of to the glue that is used. People are discouraged from using eye makeup or heavy skin creams, because the oils in these products can erode the glue, as can excessive moisture from saunas or facials
OUR OTHER TREATMENTS
Eyelash transplant surgery involves harvesting suitable hair from another location on the body and carefully implanting it along the lash line. This requires several hours and is done with local anesthetic by hair transplant surgeons. Side effects can include bruising and swelling in the lid area.
As is the case with any surgery, infection or scarring is possible but very unlikely. It is an option for those individuals with permanent forms of alopecia in which the hair follicles no longer can grow hair, and for people with burns or scars that have permanently damaged hair follicles.
Safe. Pain Free. Hair Free.
