Maintaining your extensions remains a very important task if you want to keep them as long as possible and especially if you do not want to damage your eyelashes.
It is essential that you have your eyelash extensions done by professionals who have been trained and who use good products, which are not harmful to your eyelashes & your eyes. At Le Comptoir du Visage, all our experts have been properly trained, and take care to apply extensions that will not damage your eyelashes.
Note: extensions should not be applied to your “baby eyelashes”, that is to say your new eyelashes. Each eyelash has a life cycle that must be respected. This is how you will or will not damage your eyelashes.
1. AVOID CONTACT OF YOUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS
The glue used to stick the extensions to your eyelashes has an immediate action on the extensions and your eyelashes. However, it needs 48 hours to be fully effective and to be waterproof.
This is why, if you want your eyelash extensions to last as long as possible, this first step is essential.
2. OPT FOR A GENTLE WATER-BASED MAKE-UP REMOVER
The eyelashes used for extensions are fragile eyelashes. In addition, to avoid damaging your own eyelashes, we advise you to opt for a water-based make-up remover and especially in GENTLE HEART.
No more oil-based makeup remover & eye rubbing! Take a cotton pad and Le Comptoir du Visage micellar water , for example, and rub the cotton pad from top to bottom, then from the inside out, gently over your closed eyelids.
Finish by combing your extensions with your brush.
3. ABSOLUTELY AVOID SOURCES OF FUMES & GREASES ON YOUR EXTENSIONS
Sources of steam and fat are absolutely BAN to maintain your extensions as long as possible. Indeed, steam and grease will weaken the glue and cause your extensions to come off prematurely.
4. BRUSH YOUR EYELASHES TO CARE FOR THEM
At the end of each eyelash extension session, we give you a brush that will allow you to style and keep your eyelashes in shape.
Brush them delicately, morning and evening, especially after removing make-up, in order to maintain the shape of your eyelashes.
5. DON’T PULL OUT YOUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS
If you don’t want to end up with holes in your eyelashes, don’t tear out your eyelash extensions. Do not forget that the extensions are placed on your eyelashes, and that your eyelashes fall naturally.
We therefore advise you to do fillers for 2 to 4 weeks maximum, in order to keep your perfect doe look. Our rates vary according to the number of weeks of spacing. Find all our prices here .
If you wish to deposit your eyelash extensions, two solutions are available to you.
The first, make an appointment at the Comptoir du Visage, we offer you a Keratin Lash Treatment, to strengthen and repair your eyelashes.
The second, if you want to apply your extensions alone, opt for a delicate massage of your extensions with greasy products and hot vapors so that they come off without tearing your eyelashes.
