It’s official, eyelash extensions are addictive but when you want to remove eyelash extensions – this is where the drama can start! We train all our Nouveau technicians to use to 1 on 1 method, where each lash is isolated, then the false lash place directly on top. This method means there is no risk of clumping and losing excessive lashes, or damaging your natural eyelashes in the process. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to keep getting your lashes maintained and infilled for as long as you like.
However, even the most die-hard eyelash extension advocates like to give their lashes a little break from time to time. Sound like you? Well, rule number 1 is NOT to pick them. It can be tempting to want to pull them out by hand, but it is important that you don’t! Pulling at each lash will prematurely remove it, which is especially detrimental if the lash is still in the ‘anagen’ phase. Wondering what that is? Read our helpful guide on the natural lash cycle.
Most individual lash extensions will last 6 to 8 weeks, though they will usually require infills and maintenance every 2 to 3 weeks. As lash wearers ourselves, we understand that it’s not always that easy to get back into the salon for maintenance appointments, things come up, we double book or we simply don’t have time. To solve this issue, we developed a Lash Extensions Remover that can be purchased online, or from your local salon, and used safely and effectively from the comfort of your own home. It is suitable for use on all our lash extension treatments: Extend, Express, Volume and SVS.
The kind-to-skin formula carefully softens the bonds used to apply the individual lash extensions, and gently removes them, without damaging or pulling out your own eyelashes. Simply brush the applicator from root to tip, leave for 3-5 minutes and brush again. You will notice some lashes start to slide off already, so repeat the process and leave for a further 5-10 minutes. Repeat until all the lash extensions have been removed. We recommend cleansing the area afterwards using our Eye Make-up Remover to remove any remaining residue and ensure the eye area is clean.
