All skin treatments are recommended once every 3 weeks for a series of 3-6 treatments.
For the first 48 hours after application the lashes should not exposed to water or steam in an effort to render the strongest possible bond. We recommend avoiding swimming and the use of hot tubs for 48 hours after lash application for best results.
Be gentle with your eyelashes. Do not pull on the extensions or rub the eyes excessively.
Avoid the use of all oil-based products on or around the eyelashes and do not use any waterproof mascaras.

We recommend getting a lash touch up every two to four weeks to maintain maximum fullness of your lash extensions.
Maintaining Hair Extensions
WASHING: Do not wash your hair for at least 48 hours after the extensions are fitted. This allows time for the glue to properly set. You should wash your hair as little as possible, once or twice a week is best as the less stress put on the extensions the better, and the less drying through heat the better. Always use a hair extension shampoo to avoid softening the bonds. You can use conditioner on the hair but do not put any conditioner on the bonds. Do not rub or twist the hair when drying as this can cause it to tangle. Always gently pat or blot wet hair with a towel to dry. Remember to always dry the bonds thoroughly.
BRUSHING: When brushing extensions it is best to use a hair extension brush as this will cause minimal damage to your extensions. A hard brush can often pull hair out. Do not use brushes with balls on the end of the bristles as these will rip and tear at the extensions.
STYLING:The hair can be straightened, curled, cut, and blow-dried. When straightening, avoid straightening over the bonds. Hair can also be cut and styled but when cutting please take into consideration where the bonds are so you do not get the hair cut in a way that will expose the bonds. You can dye hair but complete a strand test first as different hair types dye differently.
DAMAGE: As long as extensions are properly maintained and properly removed they will cause little or no damage to your own hair. Picking and rough brushing causes the most damage.
MAINTENANCE:It is recommended that you have a regular maintenance appointment every 4-6 weeks to properly maintain the bonds.
REMOVAL:If you choose to have your extensions removed make sure to have this done by a professional to ensure that the correct remover is used for your type of hair extensions.
SLEEPING: We recommend you tie your hair in a loose ponytail to prevent tangling while sleeping.
EXERCISE AND LIFESTYLE:Extensions suit most lifestyles, however be mindful in the following circumstances that may affect the lifespan of your bonds: Regular swimming, Sauna or Steam Room use and Excessive Aerobic Activity. After these activities use diluted PH solution to restore your hair and scalp to it's natural pH balance.
Massage Therapy After Care
After your medical body treatment drink about 40 oz. of water (about 5 glasses). Take it easy and practice any stretches that your therapist may have given you.
Continue to stretch and watch posture in between your treatments. Book a treatment before the problem returns. The longer you wait the more difficult it will be for your therapist to release any tension.
Use Emu Oil daily to hydrate the skin, relieve muscle pain and spasms, and sore muscles.
If you are a smoker please try to refrain from smoking for at least 2 hours after the massage session.
Benefits of Regular Massage:
Decrease in amount of tension held within the muscles
Decreases the risk of muscular injury, flare ups and muscle spasms
Increased flexibility and range of motion
Each massage can help boost your immune system
