About Eyelash Extensions
A beautiful set of eyelashes can frame the eyes and make the entire face look younger and more refreshed. While mascara can improve the eyelashes, it's messy and doesn't last more than a day. For long-lasting, beautiful eyelashes, Bella Lago Aesthetics in Tahoe/Truckee, California offers eyelash extensions. At Bella Lago, the Tahoe MedSpa for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden, synthetic eyelash extensions are applied by a skilled technician one at a time to each one of the patient's natural lashes. With a formaldehyde-free glue, Bella Lago ensures a safe procedure that will not harm the lashes or eyes. Eyelash extensions come in various sizes to create a seamless and natural look while also achieving the desired effect for each individual client. Not only can eyelash extensions be used to make the eyes more attractive and feminine, they help patients whose natural eyelashes do not protect the eyes from dirt and debris. Stop wasting your time with goopy, flakey, bacteria-prone mascara and schedule a consultation to learn more about eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extensions are great for patients who have thin, short eyelashes and want a long-lasting solution. Eyelash extension appointments will require the technician to be working in the eye area for an extended period of time, so patients should be comfortable with someone else's hands in their eyes. Eyelash extensions are also a good option for patients who cannot use Latisse® prescription eyelash enhancement.
What to Expect
For the first session, a full set can take up to 2 hours. Patients are asked to arrive with no eye makeup or eye cream on or around their eyes. Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, lasting up to 2 – 3 weeks depending on proper care. For eyelash fill appointments please expect up to an hour for the appointment.
To ensure a proper bonding time, patients should keep away from water for 12 – 24 hours after their appointment. Oil is not allowed for the entire time the patient is wearing eyelash extensions. Patients need to be very careful and check their eyeliner, mascara, and even their eyeshadow for oil. Touching of the eyes can also break down the glue from the natural oils in the skin, so patients should try to keep their hands away from their eyes as much as possible.
