NovaLash® Eyelash Extensions
Create the look of youthful and defined eyes with NovaLash® eyelash extensions! NovaLash® was founded in 2004 by biologist and cosmetic chemist Sophy Merszei. Along with a team of physicians, Sophy created and perfected her product and techniques to be the safest in the world for the placement of eyelash extensions. The Centre for Plastic Surgery in Grand Rapids, Michigan is proud to offer this world famous brand. With millions of satisfied clients and the scientific beginnings of the NovaLash® brand, we found that it was the perfect fit for our patients.
Why NovaLash® Eyelash Extensions?
NovaLash® adhesive is formaldehyde free and is curable in water, thus safe for the eyes. Each eyelash extension set is custom made to each individual person’s wants and needs with many different types of extension materials, shapes, lengths, and densities to create your desired eyelash extension look. NovaLash® typically lasts up to two times longer than it’s leading competitor with minimal monthly maintenance required.
How long do they last?
Eyelash extensions will stay on your lashes for your remaining natural lash life. Most individuals typically shed about one eyelash per day with new eyelashes growing to replace them during a 30- 45 day growth cycle. With attentive care, clients can expect eyelash extensions to require maintenance approximately every four weeks.
Who is a good candidate for eyelash extensions?
Most people are great candidates for NovaLash® eyelash extensions! Individuals that have a weakened immune system due to severe illness, an unusual sensitivity or skin reaction to cyanoacrylate-based adhesives, alopecia, or any skin disease in the eye area are not good candidates. Patients that have recently received an injectable treatment near the brow or forehead area should wait at least 10 days for an eyelash extension application.
Will extensions harm my natural lashes?
Not at all! The most important part of having eyelash extensions applied is choosing a highly trained and certified lash artist like ours at the Centre for Pure Skin. NovaLash® Platinum Bond Adhesive dries soft, allowing the eyelash extensions to stay flexible and bouncy just like your own natural lashes. Plus, the NovaLash® application technique used by our certified lash artist allows natural lashes to grow and thrive by not disrupting the natural growth cycle.
Can I continue to wear mascara?
Mascara is typically not needed with NovaLash® eyelash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lash extensions. Waterproof mascara is never recommended for use, as it will interrupt the adhesive bond with your natural lashes.
How should I prepare for my lash appointment?
Please remove all eye makeup before your appointment and make sure that lashes are very clean. Taking out contact lenses is recommended but not mandatory. Please avoid caffeine and over-hydration prior to the appointment. You should expect to be laying down for two hours without breaks.
