What Are Lash Extensions?

Lash Extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. 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.

How Long Do They Really Last?

When properly applied, using surgical grade bonding adhesive, 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 a visit to your beauty/lash professional is recommended every 2-3 weeks based on your own natural lash growth cycle.

Can Lash Extensions Harm Natural Lashes?

When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. Our 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.

Can Mascara Be Used With Lash Extensions?

Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. NovaLash glycol and carbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive. Click here to view NovaLash’s glycol and carbonate free mascara.

Once Applied, What Is The Proper Way To Care For Lashes?

Nightly conditioning is necessary to maximize the life of the extensions. Fox River Spa’s nighttime conditioning/cleansing pads are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility. Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is also recommended. You shouldn’t leave a hair salon without top of the line hair products – same with your lashes!

What is the difference between Classic, Volume and Hybrid lash extensions?

A set of Classics will be one fake lash applied to each individual lash of your own. A set of Volumes will be two fake lashes applied per every one real lash giving a much more dramatic effect. A set of Hybrids is a mix between the two personalized for your eyes specific needs. If you have areas that are less dense they would require volumes, and less dense areas classic. This will be discussed during a consultation with your Lash Artist ahead of time here at the spa.

What Is Henna Brow Tinting?

Get all-natural eyebrow color and definition with our brow henna. The unique henna formula provides hair color for up to six weeks and provides a tattooing effect for up to 2 weeks. This is perfect for the client that has sparse hair, is over-plucked, or recovering from a bad waxing experience. (Hopefully not here!) 🙂

*Henna is a natural based eyebrow tint for hair skin stain results are not guaranteed on all skin types. Results can also vary from 2 -14 days depending on skin type and color used.

What Is Microblading?

We are now offering Microblading! This advanced service is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to create the illusion of fuller brows. With a little handheld tool, we manually draw hair strokes. Lasts 1-2 years, with an initial touch up appointment included with first visit.

FAQ on Microblading

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a technique where fine lines are scratched into the surface of the skin, and pigment embedded. The strokes accurately replicate hair (as in a brow or hairline). Results can last from six to 18 months, depending on a variety of factors such as color of pigment, skin type, and lifestyle.

How Long Does The Result Last?

For brows, up to 18 months. For lips, one to two years. For eyeliner, three to five years. Hair color, skin type, after-care, and lifestyle also affect longevity of the results. Occasional touch-ups are a way to refresh the results. Done correctly, the treatments do not change color and fade naturally away with time. For areas such as brows, this allows future flexibility with shape, as standards of beauty change. Please note even if not visible to the eye, there will always be vestigial pigment permanently embedded in the skin.

Is It Painful?

We use effective numbing creams that are FDA approved. On a scale of 1 to 10 with “1” being no discomfort, clients often experience between a 2 and 3 with the Bespoke Brow treatment. Other factors such as menstrual cycles also affect level of sensitivity.

Is It Safe?

All our pigments are cosmetic grade, meaning that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. The ingredients used have been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Be wary of products that have not met safety standards, including those that contain “vegetable dyes” that are unstable and may change color after time. In addition, all our tools are single-use and discarded after the treatment. Our specialists are highly trained and experienced professionals.

What Is A Microbladed Brow?

It is our signature treatment, where we create your brow strand-by-strand using lifelike strokes applied directly onto the skin, using a technique called Microblading. The treatment replaces eyebrow pencils, and assures perfectly shaped and balanced brows all-day, everyday. The Microbladed Brow lasts up to 18 months, fading gradually without any discoloration.

What Happens During A Brow Consultation?

Brow hair grade and color is analyzed, and the desired shaper is drawn on with a specialized pencil. We will draw each strand to create a symmetrical, natural-looking brow that is custom-made for your bone structure, giving you the chance to see how dramatically new brows change your face. Once you are satisfied with the shape and thickness, the therapist consults with you on color— we mix and match with the hue to ensure we get a shade that is closest to your natural hair color . We will also discuss the procedure, the after-care, how long it takes the skin to heal, and how to ensure the best results. Consultations at EverTrue are always free with no obligation to proceed with the treatment.

What Happens During A Brow Treatment?

The technician will create your brow by hand, strand by strand. A topical numbing cream is applied that stays on for about 20 minutes, and then a special tool is used to make small, hair-shaped incisions in the skin underneath the brow– this technique is also known as Microblading. The shallow cuts are filled with highest-grade pharmaceutical pigments selected to match or darken arches. The treatment takes about two hours, with enough time to assess each step of the way.

What Is The Recovery Time?

There is no downtime, however the brow will take about one week to fully heal. The brow will soften in color by up to 40-50%. During this period, after-care procedures should be carefully followed.

What Is The Perfecting Session?

The Perfecting Session, done within two months of the initial treatment, is extremely important to ensure perfect results. We use this session to set the shape and color, and make any small adjustments if needed.

Should I Do Botox Before Or After Microblading?

Botox should be done after Microblading. Your doctor will be able to determine where to place Botox injections without altering the brow position. Should you decide to cease Botox treatments, brows will settle at original balanced position.

Can I Have A Chemical Peel Or Laser Treatment Before Microblading?

Please avoid chemical peels or laser treatments at least four weeks before Microblading. These treatments can make your skin thinner and more sensitive, resulting in more bleeding which can affect color retention. Wait four weeks after Microblading before doing chemical peels and laser treatments to allow the brow to fully heal.

Should I Tint My Eyebrows Before Microblading?

This is not necessary. Your brow will also be darker than usual immediately after the treatment.

Should I Color My Hair Before Microblading?

Yes, so we can match your brow to your hair color. However it is important that you let your Specialist know your original/ true hair color, as this information and your skin tone, will help them create the brow color that is the best match.

Should I Shape My Brows Before Microblading?

Brow shaping is part of our treatment. When you go for brow shaping maintenance after Microblading, request that your esthetician follow your existing brow shape.

Can I Have A Facial Before Microblading?

Please avoid facials at least two weeks before Microblading. Some intensive facial treatments can make your skin thinner and more sensitive, resulting in more bleeding which can affect color retention. Wait two weeks after Microblading before doing facials, to allow the brow to fully heal.

Can I Go Tanning Before Microblading?

Yes, but please let your Specialist know your original/ true skin color (e.g. show them a picture, or patch of skin that is not tanned), as we will need this information to create the color that is the best match, and ensure results look natural after your tan fades.
