The day of the treatment
Gently blot the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 15 minutes, or when your brows feel ‘wet’. It is imperative that you blot the excess lymph for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph which could in turn make for poor color deposit.
Days 1-7: Wash
Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don't worry...THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
Gently wash the area twice a day with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil ( included in your aftercare kit) or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the affected area. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Days 1-7: Moisturize
Apply the included aftercare ointment and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
· DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. You may tap to relieve any itchiness.

Shower prior to your appointment.
Eliminating any unnecessary contact with water or steam within the first 48 hours will insure that the bond between the semi permanent lashes and your natural lashes has enough time to properly set.
Wear comfortable clothing.
You will lay down for 60 to 120 minutes with dimmed lights and soft music as your backdrop during your eyelash application, comfortable clothes will allow you to make the most of this time to relax and be pampered.
Remove your contacts.
Your eyes will be closed during the application of your eyelash extensions, to avoid any discomfort, it is always suggested that contacts are removed allowing eyes to be comfortable in a natural and rested state.
Turn off your cellphone just prior to your appointment.
This is truly a time to sit back and relax. ringing cellphones will only interrupt your treatment. Enjoy the “me” time, and let your lash transformation begin.
Avoid Wearing Makeup.
Makeup products worn close to the eye will need to be removed prior to the lash application process. Coming to your appointment with a clean face will save time and eliminate the need for you lash stylist to remove your eye makeup.
Avoid face creams or sunblock to the eye area.
The oils within many moisturizers and sunblock can prevent the eyelash glue from properly adhering to your natural lashes, dramatically reducing the longevity of your eyelash extensions.
Please No Mascara
Lashes must be fresh and clean in order to be properly prepped to receive eye lash extension. no mascara!
Avoid or Remove large or dangly earrings.
The lash application process requires you to lay with your head propped on a comfortable support pillow. Large or dangly earrings can often get in the way making it difficult for you to remain comfortable during the complete application time.
Avoid curling your lashes on the day of your lash application.
We need your eyelashes to be in the most natural and healthy state they can prior to your lash extension application. please do not curl your eyelashes, or use any other manipulation on them the day of your appointment.
For great retention and healthy lashes cleansing is a must. It is recommended that lashes get a bath a few times a week to remove built up dirt and debris. Its also ensures that your lashes are safe from harmful bacteria that can build up at the base of the lash.
Daily brushing is also necessary to keep them tangle free and fluffy
