How Do Eyelash Extensions Work?

List: Posted: 08/11/11

Thick, full bodied eyelashes are certainly the look these days, and most people achieve this look through the use of eyelash extensions.  What exactly are these products, though, and how do they work?  How long can eyelash extensions be expected to last?

Unlike fake eyelashes, which consist of a strip of lashes that are typically glued to the top of the lid, eyelash extensions are attached to your individual lashes.  These extensions serve to make your existing lashes look much longer.  The process is usually done by a professional, though there are kits that allow you to do the process at home.  Using a professional service can cost between $200 to $500.

When you have the eyelash extensions professionally applied, you will find that the process is fairly simple and completely pain-free.  A professional will simply ask you to lie back and will use forceps to gather individual lashes, using adhesive to put on the extensions.  Once the adhesive has been given 24 hours to dry, you can expect eyelash extensions to last for up to six weeks or more, depending on the growth cycle and speed of your lashes. 

Eyelash extensions can be a great way to easily enhance your natural beauty, and when properly applied, they are quite durable.  The adhesive used can endure swimming, bathing, and other activities, with the lashes lasting until your natural lashes fall out and are replaced by new ones.  The process is remarkably simple and is one that many celebrities and beauty lovers are considering these days.
