Lash Lift

What is a Lash Lift?

During the Lash Lift process, your lashes are adhered directly onto a silicone shield carefully & gently with a water-soluble glue. Then, we carefully apply a series of different solutions and allow processing time to achieve the lifting effect. Last, a nourishing conditioner is applied to keep the lashes lustrous and gorgeous. The whole process takes about 45 minutes. After the treatment, you can wear mascara and eye makeup. Your lashes are safe, healthy and beautifully curled for 6-10 weeks (depending on your home regimen and hair growth.)

Who is a good candidate for this service?

If you have healthy lashes, and you are happy with the length and thickness of your lashes, you are the best candidate for this. This will make your eyes look more open and pretty without the daily use of the potentially damaging crimper-style eyelash curler. If you have short or very sparse lashes, you will not get as dramatic of an effect. If this describes your lashes, please come in and purchase Grande Lash MD ($65) from our retail area and use for 8-12 weeks to grow your lashes, then get your Lash Lift procedure for maximum effect!

What is the aftercare?

Aftercare is extremely simple, and low maintenance. For 24 hours after your Lash Lift procedure, Please keep your lashes dry and away from steam and oil. Do NOT use a lash curler after this service. It is not necessary, and may cause an unusual curl to your lashes. You can wear eye makeup and mascara as normal 24 hours after your Lash Lift procedure.

Eyelash Extensions

What are lash extensions?

Lash extensions are single, individual false lashes skillfully applied one by one to your natural lashes with a medical grade adhesive. The results are longer and thicker looking lashes. They’re a wonderful way to enhance your natural lashes. At Skintuition, we use synthetic mink lashes and silk lashes. We have many different lengths and thicknesses to choose from, so that we are able to create a customized look that is perfect for you.

What can I expect at my lash appointment?

Lash extension appointments at Skintuition are done in a very relaxing, private room with a spa-like atmosphere. This pain-free treatment will take 2-3 hours to apply a full set of lash extensions. Your eyes remain closed the entire duration of the appointment. Most clients fall asleep! When your lashes are finished, you’ll leave feeling refreshed and beautiful. 

How long do they last?

Since the extensions are applied to your natural lashes, they will fall off when your natural lashes shed. Your natural eyelash growth cycle is approximately 28 days. Do not be alarmed when some lashes fall out- this means that they were at the last stage of the lash cycle. Depending on your lash cycle, lifestyle, and how you care for your lashes, it’s best to get a fill done every 2-3 weeks in order to keep your lash extensions full.

What do lash extensions feel like?

Eyelash extensions from Skintuition will feel completely natural. The only difference you will notice is that they will be much longer and fuller. Our clients are always commenting on how fluffy, light and soft they feel. This is because we use the highest quality lashes that mimic the weight of your natural lashes.

What is a fill?

A fill is recommended every 2-3 weeks in order to keep the lash line full. Your fill appointment will usually take 45-90 minutes, depending on how many lashes need to be filled in. We will apply lash extensions to the new growth, and we will also remove any lash extensions that have grown out too long, and replace with a new extension. 

Do you already have lash extensions from another salon?

We no longer offer Eyelash Extension fills for clients coming from another salon. The way we will proceed with new Eyelash Extension Clients is to book your first appointment as an Eyelash Extensions Removal, so that we can look at the condition of  your natural lashes to decide the best way to proceed. Then, if you are a good candidate for Eyelash Extensions, we will schedule a separate appointment for a Full Set of Eyelash Extensions. There are a few reasons why we now have this policy; We cannot do Lash Fills for clients with Eyelash Extensions applied differently then we apply them. There are many different brands, lengths, thicknesses, curls, and styles of Eyelash Extensions. We often see new clients with lots of glue and clumps of lashes, that are very damaged from too much weight on the lashes. We do not do Eyelash Extensions this way, therefore we will not fill in lashes that are done like this. Also, we cannot be sure that the glue/lashes that you have on currently will mix with the glue/lashes that we use. We do not want to see any adverse reactions, so we need to start fresh with our products so that we are in control of the final outcome. 

Are lash extensions harmful to your natural lashes?

No, lash extensions aren’t harmful or damaging when applied correctly and taken care of. It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions to make sure that lashes are properly cared for at home. We don’t apply lashes that will be too heavy or long on your natural lashes, so that we can maintain the health of your natural lashes. When applied to one individual lash, the extensions don’t cause any interruptions in the lash cycle. Your natural lashes will continue to grow with extensions on.

Why choose Skintuition for your lash extensions?

At Skintuition, our Lash Extension Artists are dedicated to providing amazing lash extensions, while maintaining the integrity of your natural lashes. We only use the highest quality products and medical grade adhesive, all made in the USA. Our lash room is private, quiet, and relaxing so that you will have a spa like experience. We take very careful considerations to apply lash extensions to only one natural lash at a time because the health of your natural lashes is extremely important to us. We don’t use cluster lashes, which can be too heavy and damaging. We do not apply thick and heavy lash extensions, because in most cases, lash extensions that are too heavy and long can ruin your natural lashes.  Our number one priority is to provide the most beautiful and highest quality lash extensions to all of our clients. We take very careful consideration to select lash extensions that your natural lashes can handle.  With that being said, we will not apply the longest and thickest lashes extensions to someone who doesn't have enough natural lashes to support them. We keep these standards so that we do not damage our clients natural lashes. 

Before your appointment:

- Please do not drink caffeine before your lash appointment because it can make you and your eyes jittery! We need you to stay as still as possible during the procedure.

 - Try to limit liquid consumption right before your appointment, so that you don’t have to use the bathroom during your lash appointment.

 - Do not apply cosmetic products on or around eye area before appointment. It is best to have the eye area as clean as possible, so please avoid eye makeup and eye creams the day of and day before your appointment for best results.

 - If you wear contacts, it is best to wear your glasses to your lash appointment instead. We prefer you take your contacts out before you come in to your appointment.

 -We ask that you arrive without ANY makeup on, failure to do so will result in an extended cleansing and preparation time and a reduced application time. The cleanliness of your lashes is very important to achieve the best outcome when it comes to your eyelash extensions. We will not start the application process until your lashes are prepped correctly, which can take take 10-20 minutes in some cases. Please come with very clean lashes so that we have the full allotted time scheduled to focus on applying your lash extensions.  

After your Lash Appointment:

- Try to avoid getting lashes wet for 24-48 hours after your lash appointment.

- Avoid steaming your face for 24-48 hours after your lash appointment.

 - Brush your lashes twice a day with a clean mascara wand. This will keep them from tangling.

 - Every day, thoroughly and gently cleanse your lash extensions, and around the eye area. We recommend our Image Skin Care Ormedic Cleanser, which is gentle enough to use daily on your lash extensions.

 - Avoid the use of regular and waterproof mascara. The ingredients in these products can break down the adhesive used on eyelash extensions, causing you to lose lash extensions more quickly than normal. You don’t need to wear mascara when you have lash extensions. But, if you would like to wear mascara, we sell a water-soluble mascara that is safe to use.

 - Avoid the use of any products containing oils, glycols, or carbonates. These ingredients will break down the adhesive and can cause the lash extension to shed prematurely.

 - Do not use a clamp eyelash curler on your lashes, as these can damage and break your lash extensions.

 - Do not pick, pull, or twist your lash extensions! You can damage your natural lashes when you do this.

 - Don’t attempt to remove extensions on your own; it will pull out your natural lashes and cause damage. If you would like your lash extensions removed, call Skintuition to make an appointment to have them professionally removed.

 - Be sure to set up your fill appointments every 2-3 weeks to ensure that your lashes always look their best!
