Questions and Answers

At Charmed Lashe Studio of Oak Park, IL, we are happy to answer your most common questions:



What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your natural eyelashes as well as draw attention to your eyes. The extensions are typically made from synthetic materials such as polyester or natural animal hairs such as mink or fox fur. These single strands are designed and shaped to look like a natural eyelash. Each eyelash application is uniquely customized to your face, and our customers have the ability to select from various lengths and widths.

Lashes are furthermore individually applied one by one to your natural eyelashes using a very small amount of medical-grade adhesive, creating a thicker more attractive look.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

Natural eyelashes generally fall out every 60-120 days, and new lashes grow in as replacements. We recommend that you get a touch-up every two to three weeks in order to maintain your glamorous lashes.

Proper care and maintenance will be factors in how long your eyelash extensions last, coupled with variations in your lash regrowth cycle. Even so, the stronger the adhesion or bond provided by our high-quality adhesive, the more likely your extensions will remain until your natural lash is ready to shed and grow anew.

How long does it take to apply a full set of eyelash extensions?

Depending on the desired density, a single session can take anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes to complete.

Can I get my lash extensions wet?

Our lash extension adhesive is waterproof, therefore you are able to get in the shower, go swimming, and even work out while wearing your eyelash extensions without worry. However, wetting your extensions isn’t recommended immediately following your application. We suggest waiting a minimum of 24 hours, as the adhesive must thoroughly cure before applying any moisture to the lashes.

Are Charmed Lashe Extensions safe?

Charmed Lashe Extensions are applied with a medical-grade adhesive made in America. The extensions and adhesive do not come in contact with your eyes or skin at all. Many of our clients would describe the process of getting eyelash extensions as very soothing.
