What are Eyelash Extensions?
Novalash Minx lashes and glue are used as a glamorous new way to extend the length and / or thickness of natural eyelashes, as a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara.
Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up. The lashes are created to mimic real mink fur, so are extremely soft and supple with a beautiful glossy shine.
NovaLash lash extensions can be worn throughout the year with minimal monthly maintenance. Touch-ups are recommended after the initial full set application to refill any lashes that have cycled out. To maintain the full, thick appearance of a new set of lashes top ups are recommended every 2-4 weeks based on your own natural lash growth cycle. When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. The NovaLash application technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions.
This technique requires several different “separation” steps during the application process so each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle. Choose between a classic, American Volume (cluster / 3D / Russian), or London Volume looks. Patch test is required 24 hours prior to treatment.
Indications for Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions are for everyone, no matter what look you desire, providing the patch test was performed without any sign of allergy or other reaction.
During this treatment, you lie back and let us do the hard work. We will clean the eye area, and apply gel pads underneath your eyes to separate the lower lashes and keep them safely out of the way of application. Your eyelashes are cleaned and any extensions will be cared for. Individual extensions are applied to each of your own eyelashes.
The first appointment is 2 hours long, then you can choose how long you wish to book in for the top up appointments, depending on the length of time between each appointment. It is recommended that you return every 2 – 4 weeks to maintain the lashes.
After the treatment
After your appointment, you are free to carry on life as normal. With Novalash, you can swim, exercise, steam, sauna, shower etc immediately after the appointment.
There is no problem using oil-based products on the eye area, but you should be wary of some mascaras depending on the ingredients, which may affect the glue. You will be given a brush to take home to brush the lashes morning and evening. You may purchase the aftercare kit for best longest lasting results, which contains the moisturising and conditioning cleansing pads, LashWand, and specially formulated mascara for use with the extensions when necessary.
