Frequently Asked Questions about NovaLash Eyelash Extensions


What Are NovaLash Lash Extensions?

NovaLash Lash Extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara.  Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal.  Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up. 

Why should I Get Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are perfect for women or men who want fuller, luxurious lashes without using daily mascara or damaging their natural lashes.  NovaLash extensions are also fabulous for special events such as parties, dates, weddings, senior pictures, prom, sorority functions, and holiday events.  Once applied, you can live your life as you normally do; these lashes fit your lifestyle.  You can even swim or get in the sauna with these lashes.

How are these semi-permanent extensions applied?

The process is very relaxing and comfortable, with the client reclining in a chair with her eyes closed, while individual extensions are applied lash-to-lash. 


Can Lash Extensions Harm Natural Lashes?

Absolutely not!  Properly applied lash extensions do not negatively affect your natural lashes, as they bond a single lash extension to each eyelash with special Platinum Bond Adhesive, developed by physicians for use in close proximity to the eye.  NovaLash is the industry leader in developing pharmaceutical grade lash extension bonding adhesive, which has been approved by the FDA, following all United States safety standards and is one of the only formaldehyde free manufactured adhesives on the market.


How long will my semi-permanent extensions last?

NovaLash semi-permanent lash extensions can last up to 6+ weeks when properly cared for.  A client’s natural lashes will continue to grow and shed naturally, so if a client wants to maintain the fullest most luxurious lashes, she will need to get fill-ins or “touch-ups” every 2-3 weeks.

Can Mascara Be Used With Lash Extensions?

The use of mascara with lash extensions may not be needed, as the lashes will look naturally fuller, thicker, and longer.  However, if you are nearing your appointment touch-up time, you may wear mascara, but you will need to ONLY use approved mascara that does not contain glycols, organic solvents or urea and is not waterproof.   You may purchase NovaLash mascara from Amy, which is mascara specifically formulated for use on your extensions.  Please see pricing information for details.


How do I care for my NovaLash extensions?

The first 12 hours after you have your extensions applied are critical, as you should not get them wet so they will be able to really bond to your natural lashes.  Following the first 12 hours, you can go about your normal routine but will need to be sure that you do not expose your lashes to products containing glycols, solvents or urea, as these products break down the adhesive bond.  Only wear mascara that is specifically formulated for lash extensions.  You can purchase NovaLash mascara through Amy.  Please see pricing information for more details.

Nightly conditioning is necessary to maximize the life of the extensions.  NovaLash’s nighttime conditioning/cleansing pads are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility.   You can purchase these pads separately or in an Aftercare Kit, which also contains NovaLash mascara and an extra a lash wand.
