Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique.

Before and After Care
8. For Eyelash Extension
The first 48 hours are critical! Remember that you’ve just had fine, tiny silk hairs intricately glued individually to your natural lashes. As with most things involving glue, there is a drying time. Installing eyelash extensions takes about 2 hours, but the full drying time takes between 24 to 48 hours! Here are some tips for the first 48 hours:
Avoid getting your new eye lashes moist with water, creams, cleansers or any other type of product during the initial 24 hours. Let your new eyelashes be! This will come easy, because your eyelashes will be vibrant, fresh and gorgeous.
Do not pull, scratch, rub, or tug at your new eyelashes.
Common Sense is a must! Natural eyelashes by themselves without eyelash extensions are not permanent, 1 to 5 lashes fall out every day. Just because you now have eyelashes extensions, doesn’t mean your eyelashes are invincible. You ask “How to care for eyelash extensions?” we say, “Use common sense!”
Avoid rubbing your eyes excessively to create undue stress on your natural eyelashes and your new eyelash extensions.
Avoid excessively hot baths, showers or steam rooms. High heat will change the adhesive’s optimal chemical properties and lead to faster break down of the glue.
Do not use an eyelash curler. One, you won’t need to, because your lashes will have a fabulous perfect curl. Two, it creates undue stress on the lashes and the bonds.
Do not pull or pluck at your eyelashes. This may cause your natural eyelashes to fall out prematurely before its full growing cycle has matured.
Solvents are devastating! Here is the definition straight from Wikipedia: “A solvent is a liquid, solid, or gas that dissolves another solid, liquid, or gaseous solute.” Think of nail polish remover and the affects it has on semi-permanent nail polish. The magical glue in your new eyelash extensions can fall victim to you going home and dissolving the eyelash adhesive with your own products. Here is some advice: Oil-based products are the prey solvents. They will loosen the lash extension’s glue bond leaving you going to the salon for a refill sooner than any of us would like.
Go ahead and use your makeup remover just be sure that it is oil-free. Most are not oil based, but be careful!
Check and be certain that your face cleansers and cosmetics don’t contain glycols and other solvents.
