The Ultimate Eyelash Extensions in the Sukhumvit Area
Choosing eyelash extensions is an easy and effective way to give yourself a whole new look. This popular beauty treatment transforms your natural lashes to make them longer, thicker and stronger. Before you make an appointment, here is some more information on how to prepare and what you should expect.
It typically takes two hours to apply a full set of lash extensions. However, you can still achieve a dramatic effect with a half set of lashes and they will naturally take around an hour to apply.
Before your appointment
Make sure that your eyelashes are completely clean and free from any traces of mascara. Use an oil-free makeup remover the evening before your appointment as well as a mild soap. This will help to make sure that the eyelash extensions bond well to your natural lashes.
On the day of your appointment
The beauty technician will discuss the shape and type of eyelash extensions that you prefer. Eyelash extensions are typically made of synthetic materials, mink, or silk, although synthetic extensions are by far the most common. There are various different sizes available from 6mm all the way up to 17mm. it is a good idea to search for photos in advance of the sort of look that you want to achieve and talk with your beauty technician about the best way to achieve that look.
Once you have made the decision, the beauty technician will fully clean your lashes to make sure that they are free from oil and proteins. Soft pads are then placed under each eye on top of the lower lashes to keep them separate from the top lashes. You will keep your eyes closed during the treatment. The lashes will be applied one by one using a special type of semi-permanent glue that does not damage the natural lash or irritate the eyes.
The duration of the application
It typically takes two hours to apply a full set of lash extensions. However, you can still achieve a dramatic effect with a half set of lashes and they will naturally take around an hour to apply. Touch-ups are generally recommended every three or four weeks to replace lashes that have been naturally shed.
After the application
It is a good idea to keep water away from your eyes for between twelve and twenty-four hours after the lash extension. This is because the glue takes a few hours to form a strong bond and water can weaken the process. Although using mascara on your lash extensions will not be a problem, waterproof mascara should be avoided. Mascara should only be applied to the very tips of the extensions with an especially light hand. This will help to make your eyes really stand out, while mascara applied to the base of the lashes is likely to become clumpy.
