EYELASH EXTENSIONS Lash extensions are Hollywood’s best kept secret and fashion’s hottest trend! Achieve thick, long, naturally abundant looking eyelashes without mascara or the hassle of false lashes. Lashes are individually adhered with a synthetic lash directly to your natural eyelash with a special bonding agent. Lash Extensions are semi- permanent and can be applied fully, partially or just to the corners of your existing lashes. Lashes last anywhere from two weeks to two months depending on the life cycle of your own natural lashes and after care. Intermezzo’s aesthetician Cherry Lillibridge is certified through NOVALASH, the premier company specializing in eyelash extensions. Our lashes come in an array of lengths, curves, colors and thicknesses. We are passionate about achieving the perfect lashes custom tailored for your needs. Prior to your appointment 1. Remove all eye makeup and clean your lashes with mild, oil free cleanser. 2. Please arrive without mascara. This allows your entire appointment to be used for your new lashes. 3. Do not curl your lashes. Straight lashes work better. 4. If you are a contact wearer, remove contact lenses and wear glasses to your appointment. Or, bring your lens case and solution and remove them when you arrive to your appointment. 5. Plan to set aside 2 hours for your initial appointment. Bring your own iPod or listen to our wonderful spa music. This is a very relaxing process, and most of our clients fall asleep during the procedure. You will be amazed when you wake up with gorgeous looking lashes. Making your eyelash extensions last • Do not expose your new eyelash extensions to water for the first 12-24 hours after application. • Your face should be washed with careful care to avoid splashing water on the eyes. • Do not swim, shower, or use hot tubs, steam rooms, or saunas for 24 hours. • Your first night, while the glue is still curing, make sure you do not sleep with your lashes pushed into your pillow. It is best to prop your head so your eyelashes are left untouched by the pressure of the pillow. • Keep the area around the lashes free of oil based products such as moisturizers, eye creams and make up removers. Products containing oils, glycols and carbonates will break down the glue's bond, causing caking of the glue and resulting in loss of extensions. • We recommend a lash extension Aftercare Kit to ensure long lash life. Dermalogica and Epicuren offer cleansers and moisturizers which are gentle for your new lashes. Please ask for a recommendation from your Intermezzo skincare specialist. • Rubbing, pulling, picking or over-cleaning the lashes will cause premature loss. Do not attempt to remove any extension lashes yourself, please call your lash extension technician if you would like to remove the product. • Do not use any mascara on your lash extensions. Mascara will dissolve the adhesive and shorten the lifespan of your lashes. If you must use mascara, one for sensitive eyes (water based) is best, although not recommended. NEVER use waterproof mascara. • Extension should not be curled (permed) or tinted (with chemicals). If you tint your lashes please do it prior to your appointment. Tinting is beneficial if you have blond or light colored lashes.
