Still need to book your Eyelash Extension treatment?

The First 24 Hours

The first 24 hours after receiving your new lashes are crucial! The specialized adhesive we use to attach each individual lash will still be setting, so you have to be very careful not to do anything to prevent the adhesive from remaining. How do you do this? Don’t get your lashes wet! During the first day following your treatment, avoid showering, visiting steam rooms or saunas, crying, excessive exercise which could lead to sweating, splashing water on your face, and swimming. If you can keep your eyelashes away from water for the first 24 hour period, the adhesive will properly set on your lashes, and you’ll get to keep your beautiful new look.

Avoid Oil-Based Washes and Products

Eyelash Extensions After Care After the first 24 hours, your Lavish Lashes Eyelash Extensions can stand up to water. However, oils will not work so well with your new look. You’ll want to avoid oil-based cleansers and makeup removers because the oils will interfere with the specialized adhesive, causing it to break down and your lashes to fall off. While some separation of lashes is normal, oil in eye creams, cleansers, and makeup removers can speed up the process, leaving you wanting more lashes quicker than you thought.

Use Makeup That is Removed with Water

Although you won’t need mascara after you get your new Eyelash Extensions, some clients still like adding a little for special events. If you’d like to use mascara, be sure to avoid waterproof mascara as this would require oil-based remover, and lead to damage of the adhesive keeping your new lashes on. You’ll want to follow this rule with other eye makeup like shadows and liner, allowing you to simply splash water on the area to remove your makeup.

Carefully Clean Your Lashes

Eyelash Extensions After Care You’ll want to brush through your lashes at least once per day with a clean, dry mascara wand. By combing through your eyelashes, you’ll keep them straight and help avoid breakage. Be sure you avoid cotton swabs on your new lashes, and only use products made for eyelash extension cleaning, such as Lavish Lashes Gentle Eyelid Cleanser. After cleaning your lashes, or any time you get them wet, but sure to gently pat dry rather than wiping. Too much pressure to your lashes can cause them to fall out, and excessive rubbing is the leading cause of this. Also, avoid touching your new lashes with your fingers; our bodies are covered in natural oils that can also damage the adhesive and ruin your latest look.

Laguna Niguel Laser Hair Removal

Summer is here and that means it’s time to hit the beaches for some sunshine and waves! You want to be able to put on your bathing suit without worrying about shaving and the burn from salt water that follows a fresh shave. That’s where we come in. Wake Up Beautiful is pleased to offer Laser Hair Removal to the Laguna Niguel area.

Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S.. There are many benefits of choosing Laser Hair Removal over shaving, waxing, or other methods of hair removal, and we fully believe you’ll love the results once you’ve come in for treatment. Our system utilizes highly concentrated light by beaming it directly into hair follicles, which is then absorbed by the follicle pigment. This will eventually destroy the root of each hair, leaving your skin as smooth as can be.

Discover the benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal will take some time to create a completely hair-free area. Since hairs can only be targeted when they are attached to the root, each treatment will be able to remove about 20% of hair in the area. Most clients require 4-6 visits to see desired results, but visits will be determined by the specific area and individual receiving treatment. While this treatment may initially take longer to see results, there are many benefits to choosing laser hair removal instead of waxing:

Long-Term Results

Laser Hair Removal prevents hair regrowth for months on end whereas waxing must be repeated monthly.

Cost Efficiency

While there is a greater upfront cost, over the span of just one year, waxing can cost you up to double the price of laser treatments.

No Ingrown Hairs

Since the hair won’t grow back, you don’t have to worry about pesky ingrown hairs like you do with waxing.

Pain Free

Waxing rips your hair from the root, causing you to feel intense pain. Laser hair removal is frequently not felt, and when it is, is described as a mild pinch.

How It Works

Our Laser Hair Removal treatments are safe for all skin types and are perfect for all genders. We can do as much or as little hair removal as you’d like, and will cover the full range of your body. But how does Laser Hair Removal work?

Step 1 Prior to treatment hair is cut off or shaved – this is so the laser energy isn’t used above the surface of the skin. This is also why it is recommended you let your hair grow for some time before coming in for treatment; it allows the hair removal to be as close to the skin as possible.

Step 2 The laser beam passes safely through skin turning light energy into heat. The heat energy is then drawn into the melanin of the hair, heating up the entire hair shaft.

Step 3 The heat will then weaken or destroy your hair follicle, allowing the hair shaft to become detached from said follicle. This means that the hair has become uprooted and the deep removal process has begun.

Step 4 The hair sheds and the absence of a hair follicle means hair doesn’t re-grow. While not all hair can be removed immediately, you will see results following your first treatment. Depending on the thickness and color of your hair, you may need to return for 3-5 visits before all hair is removed from the area.

Once you’ve received your Laser Hair Removal treatment(s) from Wake Up Beautiful, you’ll always be ready for a stroll down the sand and a relaxing time in the ocean water. You won’t need to worry about shaving or waxing, and can always take that last-minute trip to the beach!

Never miss a beach day again

Everything You Need to Know

Will lash extensions ruin your existing eyelashes?

All of our lash technicians have been professionally trained on the application of eyelash extensions, and will not harm your lashes. Since each lash is individually applied to your current lashes, they will naturally fall out with your lashes. The only time damage will be done is if you don’t have a professional apply the lashes, or if you rip your lashes out. Lavish Lashes are safe for you and your lashes.

How do I keep my lashes looking lavish?

Our lash extensions are guaranteed to last up to one month! However, if you come in for regular fills every 2-3 weeks as recommended, you’ll pay less than a full extensions set and you’ll always look ready to Wake Up Beautiful!

What do I need to know before my appointment?

There are a few things we want our clients to know before they come in for their appointment.

  • Shower! We highly recommend doing this before your appointment because you can’t get your lashes wet for a minimum of 12 hours, although 24 is recommended.
  • Please don’t wear makeup or products on your eyes to your appointment. These products can interfere with our adhesive and ability to apply lashes. If you wear contact, we recommend wearing glasses to the appointment and switching to contacts after.
  • You may specify color if you would like a different tint to your eyelashes. Please be sure to notify your technician prior to your treatment if you would like to change your lash color.

Are there any lavish lashes eyelash extensions after care tips?

  • Avoid oil based makeup removers, lotions, and cleansers. This can upset the adhesive used on each lash.
  • Don’t use waterproof mascara or standard lash curlers. You can wear regular mascara since only water is required for removal, and you may use heated curlers for your lashes if you need that extra curl!
  • Be gentle with your lashes! Don’t tug or pull them, and avoid excessively rubbing your eyes.
