Eyelash Extension After Care
Eyelash Extension After Care
Now that you have Blissful lush lashes take note of these tips to maintain them. With proper care and fills your eyelashes can last indefinitely.
Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first two hours.
Do not use a spa, sauna or pool for the first 24 hours. The extensions need that amount of time to properly bond.
Avoid pulling or rubbing your eyes.
Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them.
ONLY use oil-free makeup remover. We carry safe remover pads for sale in our studio and also provide clients with a do-it-yourself eyelash wash. If your eyelashes are tangled or crossed over, use the eyelash brush given to you during your appointment to gently brush them straight and put them in place. You can purchase a longer life coating to extend the wear of your lash extensions in between fills.
Proper hygiene is very important. Please keep lashes clean by regular washing. We have a special foaming lash bath eyelash cleanser available online or in our salon.
Use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. We have extension safe mascaras available for purchase at your appointment. Only apply the mascara to the tips of your lashes.
After showering avoid rubbing lashes, it best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry.
You can also dry the lashes by using a hair dryer on the cool setting and blowing them dry from the bottom up. It makes them curlier and fluffy.
Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil-based products can break down the adhesive.
Blissful Lashes recommends touch-up appointments every two to four weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions
Eyebrow Care – After
The day of the treatment: Absorb – Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every Hour for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.
Days 1-7: Wash – Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don’t worry….THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!). Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Days 1-7: Moisturize – Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
PLEASE NOTE: Oily Skin clients should apply the ointment on day 4! Wash on the first 3 days of healing.
Extra Tips and Important Reminders.
Use a fresh pillowcase
Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color

Important note about showering: Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.
