Eyelash Extension Removal
When you have had your lash extensions for a while, you will notice that they might not be as full and amazing as they were after you got them done. Aside from getting an infill once in every 2-4 weeks, removing them is also a great option if they are damaged, or if you want to take a break.
There are so many factors that can cause your extensions to go bad and not look fabulous anymore.
For example, picking or pulling at your lashes, using oil-based make-up products, and using waterproof mascara. When you do these, your lash extensions most definitely will go bad and not last long.
When your lashes are damaged, we remove them completely, access the health of your natural lash, and install a fresh set.
Never try to remove your lashes at home, and by yourself. You can damage your natural lashes in the process, and hinder their growth.
We know you can DIY for a lot of things, but with your lash extensions, it’s a no-go. You also stand the chance of irritating your eyelids. You don’t want that.
Although, you can just leave them to fall off by breaking the rules to making your extensions last longer. By this we mean; taking hot steamy showers, using oil-based eye products, and applying castor oil. This will over time weaken the glue.
This process is going to take a while for the lashes to fall off. The worst part is, they may not all fall off at once. So there is the tendency of pulling and picking at them. Plus, you don’t want to wear that kind of look – having your extensions growing out in different directions.
Getting your extensions removed professionally by us takes less than 15 minutes, and saves you the stress of waiting for long, or damaging your natural lashes.
Our Removal Process
When you book an appointment to remove your eyelash extensions, we remove them, access your lash health, and replace them with new ones, or tell you to take a break for like 2-4weeks to give your natural lashes time to grow.
The first thing we do is to place a tape or pad under your eyes to protect the skin around your eyes. Then, we apply an eyelash glue remover to your lashes, and let it sit in for a few minutes. We usually use a gel remover or a cream remover.
Next, we use tweezers or a swab to gently brush off the extensions. After this, we use a lint-free swab to brush off any residue from the glue remover on your natural lashes.
Then finally, we use a wet cotton pad to clean your natural lashes, fan them dry, and brush them out.
You can also use our oil-free lash shampoo and conditioner to clean your lashes thoroughly, before and after we install a new set.
