Luscious Lashes® are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Luscious Lashes® are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes. Luscious Lashes® are for professional application only.
Luscious Lashes ® are crafted from synthetic polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear and tear than other materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions with human skin.
Most women choose Luscious Lashes® to lengthen their natural lashes while others want their lashes to look fuller. A number of women with naturally light coloured lashes choose Luscious Lashes® to darken their existing lashes. Still others love the different, fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering.
Luscious Lashes ® allow you to spend less time with make-up; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Because our lashes are bigger at the base, they create the same effect as eye liner so that step can be avoided as well. Overall, Luscious Lashes® will give you the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye make-up when, in reality, you spent no time at all.
When properly applied, a Luscious Lashes ® eyelash extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover. This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day depending on their individual growth cycles. On shorter natural lashes this growing and shedding cycle is virtually unnoticeable.
With proper care and maintenance, Refills are typically only needed once every 2 to 3 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed*. Depending on the expertise and experience of the Lash Technician and the number of lashes being applied, it generally takes between 75 to 90 minutes to apply a full set of Luscious Lashes ®. Refills can be done in as little as 30 to 60 minutes.
Are eyelash extensions safe?
Yes, they are completely safe - when applied by a trained professional.
It is important to match the extensions with the length and thickness of your own lashes. We only apply extensions that are suitable for your lash type, so they won't weigh down or interfere with the growth of your natural lashes. As long as the eyelash extensions are applied individually, they will remain just as healthy and strong as before. Your eyes are closed throughout the whole procedure making the treatment process safe and relaxing.
How long will the eyelash extensions last once applied?
In general you can expect a full set of lash extensions to last 5-6 weeks. However, please remember this is dependent on the growth pattern of each individual’s natural lashes and how well the lashes are cared for. Your natural lashes are constantly growing and falling out. The extensions will usually last the entire life cycle of your own lashes, and will shed with your natural eyelashes as these falls out.
How often will I need to refill?
Your eyelash extensions will fall out as your own lashes shed naturally. A full set usually lasts about 5-6 weeks*. It is completely up to you, if and when you choose to replace the lash extensions, but to maintain a full luscious look infills are usually required every 2-3 weeks.
Is it uncomfortable to have the extensions applied?
Not at all. You will be reclined with your eyes closed while the extensions are applied individually to your eyelashes. The application takes time, on average between 1- 2 hours, but it is a relaxing treatment. Many of our clients fall asleep during the procedure.
Can I wear contact lenses?
Yes. As a precaution, we recommend contact lenses are removed for the application procedure. Contact lenses can be worn directly after treatment and throughout the the life of your eye lash extensions.
How many lashes are applied during the treatment?
The average number of eyelash extensions applied on a full set is about 100 lashes per eye. The exact amount of lashes varies according to each individual's eye shape and lash type. We recommend an extra full set if your eyelashes are naturally full and you prefer a more glamorous effect. This allows more time to apply additional lashes and achieve your desired look.
Can lashes be removed?
The removal process is easy, but should only be undertaken by a trained professional. There is a special solution we use to remove the lashes with ease and without damaging the natural lash. You should never attempt to remove lash extensions by yourself, or with any product.
Are eyelash extensions suitable for anyone?
Almost everyone is able to enjoy eyelash extensions. We use the most advanced EU regulated medical grade adhesives, and can offer our clients different brands to choose from. Even people with allergies or hay fever find the glue does not affect them. We use high performing glues, and less than 1% of our clients have had a reaction after treatment. We recommend a sensitivity test is carried to determine the most suitable product for each individual. It's important to choose a certified experienced technician that uses quality products.
Can I use eye make-up and mascara?
Yes, eye make-up can be worn as normal but avoid using any oil based products as these loosen the bonding glue. We recommend you do not use waterproof mascara creams or removers which contain oil as these will weaken the bond, causing the extensions to loosen and fall off prematurely.Be gentle and take care not to pull your eyelash extensions when washing and cleansing the face.
Can I curl, perm or tint eyelash extensions?
No, if you want to maintain your eyelash extensions in good condition please avoid curling, perming and tinting your lashes as this will disturb the adhesive. These are not generally needed as the lashes we apply will give you the desired curl effect and enhance your eye shape.
Can I have eyelash extensions if my lashes are sparse, short, fine, or curly?
In the majority of cases, most clients’ lashes are good candidates for lash extensions. However, there may be limitations to the type of look achievable if your natural lashes are particularly sparse, fine or curly. For example, a healthy strong straight host lash is needed in order to attach the extension properly and lashes that have severe bends may not be viable for extensions.

Can I have extensions applied to my bottom lashes?
Quite simply, no. Applying lash extensions to the bottom lashes would require clients to keep their eyes open. For safety reasons, we do not condone this practice.
All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consents forms. These may include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique, but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
