Many women wish for natural, lengthy lashes that don’t need any mascara. Long eyelashes are a desirable look, they help your eyes to look bigger, more open, and more feminine. To make your eyes even more beautiful try lash extensions with Michelle at Me by Michelle in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Lash extensions are exactly what they sound like, extensions that make your lashes look longer. These help to open up tired-looking eyes, improve facial features, and boost confidence. Michelle offers two kinds of lash extensions: the classic and volume.
During this procedure, Michelle applies 1 extension per 1 natural eyelash. Michelle will help to choose the length and curve of the extensions, so they complement your facial features, preferences, and suit the condition of your natural lashes.
If you would like a more natural 2-3D volume look, this can be done with this technique. For this up to 3 very fine lash extensions are applied per 1 natural eyelash. This produces soft and fluffy volume. It is a great option for patients with fine, sparse natural eyelashes.
Eyelash extensions are a perfectly safe and effective procedure as long as they are applied by a licensed professional such as Michelle.
When you come in for your lash extension appointment it is important that you don’t have any makeup on your lashes. Also, if you wear contacts to bring a case to put them in during the procedure. The entirety of the lash extensions session takes between 1.5-2 hours to complete. During the session you will be lying comfortably on a treatment bed. Michelle will then cleanse the eyelashes and prepare them for the adhesion of the false lashes. Your lower lashes will be covered with protective eye shields and your eyes will remain closed during the treatment. You are free to listen to music, podcasts, or even take a nap if you like since this treatment is lengthy. Between 50 to 100 lashes will be applied and bonded to your eyelashes with a high-quality medical-grade lash extension adhesive. Once the glue is dry you are free to open your eyes.
It is important to follow all aftercare instructions given by Michelle so that your lashes stay in place and continue to look beautiful. Do not get them wet for at least 24 hours after the treatment session. Avoid oil, saltwater, and chlorine also as these can break down the adhesive. It is also important to not put mascara on the lashes as these can cause you to lose the extensions.

Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic lashes of different lengths, curls, and weight (thickness) cut in the shape of natural lash and applied one-by-one to each individual natural lash as an ‘extension’ of your eyelash. Lash extensions are not strip lashes, clusters, or flares. Lash extensions are meant to lengthen, thicken, and enhance the natural lash line without causing any pain, discomfort, or lash loss when applied properly.
The lash extension application can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the fullness of your natural lashes. The normal human eye has 150-200 lashes per eye. Volume lashes take twice as long to apply. The more lashes that you have, the more extensions we can apply! This is a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration. Therefore, it is important not to rush the process so that you can leave with a perfect set of lashes! You will be relaxing with your eyes closed, and you will feel no pain as this is a non-invasive procedure.
The normal human eye has 150-200 lashes per eye. We apply an extension to each and every lash you have. For those wanting thick lashes, or those with very little natural lashes, we offer Volume lashes; the application of 2-8 ultralight-weight eyelash extensions applied to each individual natural eyelash.
Yes. Your extensions can be removed at any time. This takes about 30 minutes with our acetone-free adhesive remover.
Yes, but most clients don't even feel the need to wear eye makeup...Just wake up and go! No more running, streaking, smudging or flaking mascara. You can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual, as long as it is not waterproof or liquid, as these products will break down the adhesive. Mascara is NOT recommended, as this will break down the adhesive, clump up the extensions, and cause your extensions to come off earlier than expected.
The lashes are applied directly to the natural lash, never applied to the skin. The procedure is pain-free, and the extensions are feather-light, so they will not pull your natural lashes out. We take extra care to make sure we cover each individual lash. We do not clump lashes together, apply them to the skin, or damage your natural lashes with an improper application. The eyes should always remain closed while receiving this procedure.
No. If you wear mascara, the longevity of your extensions will be greatly reduced and you will need to come in more often for a fill and we will charge extra to clean out your lashes and fill them back in. You can wear mascara on the bottom lashes, however, you must remove all your eye makeup with a water-based cleanser before you go to sleep or your makeup will goop up the base of your extensions and cause your extensions to come off prematurely.
Lash extensions require touch-ups every 2-3 weeks to maintain their fullness. The longevity of your extensions will vary based upon your natural lash growth cycle; if your hair grows fast, then so will your extensions, and fills will be needed more often. If you follow our instructions for caring for your lash extensions, your lashes will remain fuller longer. The average human eye sheds 5-7 natural eyelashes per day, this is 70-90 natural lashes within 2 weeks (half your natural eyelashes), this is why we recommend fills every 2 to 3 weeks. If you return for fill with less than 40% of your extensions in place, you will be required to obtain a full set. Our rates are set based upon time and coverage applied.
An individual with an allergy to adhesives or cyanoacrylate adhesives. An individual who has undergone chemotherapy over the last six months or an individual who does not have natural eyelashes may not have Eyelash Extensions applied. Lashes that grow into the eye are not candidates for lash extensions either. If you suffer from an eye infection or a degenerative disease of the eye, we cannot apply lash extensions to your eyes. If you sleep on your face (stomach sleeper) you should not get eyelash extensions, you will continually end up rubbing them off in your pillow, and then be needing a full set at each fill appointment.
We apply lash extensions to your natural lashes. We do not glue the extensions directly to your skin. For those clients with little natural lashes, we can apply volume lashes for a thicker lash line.
Even though your lash extensions are waterproof, we do not recommend getting your lashes wet on a regular basis. We recommend avoiding allowing the shower water to beat down on your lash extensions, as anything constant and repetitive can cause your lash extensions to come off prematurely.
