An Eye-Opening Look at Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions make a person’s eyelashes appear longer. During an eyelash-extension procedure, the patient has a synthetic eyelash applied to each of his or her natural lashes. The application of a synthetic eyelash to a natural eyelash is done with a special bonding agent.
The bonding agent must be applied to one eyelash at a time. It is placed on the thick base of each synthetic eyelash. That thick base narrows to a point, allowing the synthetic eyelashes to give all those who wear them a very glamorous look.
A check of the facilities that provide eyelash extensions shows that one primary factor distinguishes each provider – the nature of the substance that bonds the synthetic eyelash to the natural eyelash. Each bonding agent seeks to deal with the lifecycle of the eyelash in a totally unique way.
Suppose, for example, that someone who wants an eyelash extension had contacted the facility listed on www.novesash.com. He or she would get synthetic lashes that are attached to the natural lashes by a platinum bond adhesive.
Synthetic eyelashes that have been attached to natural lashes with a platinum bond adhesive last for four to six weeks. At the end of that time, new synthetic eyelashes must be attached to the natural lashes.
The initial treatment takes between 90 minutes and 3 hours. It costs between $225 and $600. Touch-ups cost between $40 and $100.
Obviously, a bonding agent that can reduce the number of touch-ups will also reduce the total cost for all the necessary procedures. Is there an agent that binds synthetic eyelashes to natural eyelashes more firmly than platinum bond adhesive?
Yes there is. At “extreme lashes” a person who wants longer eyelashes can have synthetic lashes attached that should stay in place for 2 months. The bonding agent used at this Texas facility is an HP-3 high-performance bonding agent. It contains the same adhesive that is used in suture-less surgery.
The lasting hold of the HP-3 bonding agent is not its sole benefit. HP-3 is odorless, it’s stronger than other bonding agents, and it dries faster.
The professionals at “extreme lashes” have access to another important chemical. That is a product that can remove the HP-3 bonding agent. That bond remover contains antibiotic agents. The existence of those agents in the remover decreases any chance that the removal of the old eyelashes will cause infection.
