What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are not to be confused with strip lashes “or cluster lashes”. The eyelash extensions we apply at Royal Jasmin are individual, semi-permanent, glossy synthetic lashes that are applied to your natural lashes to make them look longer, fuller and thicker. It is a single lash procedure.
What do they look like?
The lashes look like real lashes but come in different lengths, thicknesses, curls and even colors! We can achieve a natural look or a more dramatic look- whichever you prefer.

How do they feel?
The lashes are weightless!
How are the lashes applied?
The lashes are applied one lash at a time. We isolate a natural eyelash and then adhere a single lash extension to the top of it by using a special bonding adhesive made exclusively for eyelash extensions. This is done approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the lash or the adhesive has contact with your skin. Again, the lashes are NOT applied to your skin-just your eyelash hair.
Do they hurt?
NO. When properly applied you should not feel them at all. They are lightweight and feel totally natural.
How long do they last?
Indefinitely with Touch-Up appointments. Natural lashes are constantly shedding and new ones are growing in their place. Extensions will fall out along with your natural lash when it’s at the end of its growth stage. As the new ones come in, they will need to have extensions attached.
Can I get the lashes for a one-time occasion?
Yes, absolutely recommended for events such as reunions, weddings, honeymoons, vacations, proms, formals, photo shoots, etc.
If I want to keep them, what is the maintenance?
The extensions shed with your natural lash that it is attached to. Growth and shedding cycles are inconsistent and random so to maintain your new look, we recommend having a “Touch-Up” every 2-3 weeks.
Are eyelash extensions suitable for everyone?
Anyone of any age (women AND men) can have eyelash extensions as long as there is a healthy natural lash to adhere the extension onto. Our trained professionals can tell you if your natural lashes are eligible. If you are under the age of 18, your parent must accompany you to the appointment and sign a consent form for you.
Why wouldn’t my eyelashes be “eligible” for extensions?
Some lashes could be too weak, too thin or too kinky/curly. If you are unsure, call us to book a free consultation anytime.
Can I get extensions if I rub my eyes?
If you have a habit of rubbing your eyes, eyelash extensions may not be for you. We want you to avoid rubbing or tugging at your eyes-you do not want to pull out your extensions as it may take your natural lash with it.
How do I take care of them?
It may seem like a lot to remember, but eyelash extensions are very easy to take care of. The most important thing to be aware of is that “oil is the enemy”. Oil will break down the bond of the adhesive and cause premature loss of the extension. You want to make sure there is no oil in anything you use near your eyes. (foundation, eye creams, makeup, etc.) You do not want to get them wet for 24 hours. Never pull on them. Avoid running water on your lashes. Avoid sauna or hot steam. Use only water based makeup remover. Do not rub your eyes. Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler. Do not sleep on your face.
What can I expect during my appointment?
While you relax, our licensed, certified professional performs the delicate task of attaching one lash at a time. In fact, most clients fall asleep! We play relaxing music but feel free to bring your iPod, audio book or favorite CD’s!
Can I wear mascara?
We ask that you do not. One advantage of having lash extensions is not needing mascara. Ditch the mascara-you really do not need it! Never use waterproof mascara or oil based mascara on the extensions as it will break the bond of the adhesive.
Can I swim, shower, exercise or visit a spa while wearing lashes?
Yes, if these activities are not done excessively. Our special adhesive allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa while wearing extensions. You can enjoy your lash extensions with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Please do not swim or spa (even steam from your shower) for 12 hours after your lash procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure. The main thing to remember with these activities is that you just want to make sure the extensions are not excessively exposed to heat and moisture.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
1.  Be sure to have all makeup removed from the eye area. The more time we spend doing this for you, the less time we have to apply lashes!
2. Do not drink too much caffeine before your appointment. This can make your lashes flutter which makes it difficult to apply lashes.
3. Please put your cell phone on vibrate or silent.
4. If you would like, bring your ipod to listen to.
5. You may want to visit the ladies room beforehand.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
No, throw your eyelash curler out! Eyelash curlers may pull not only your lash extensions, but also your own lashes. Even if you do not have extensions on, throw the curler out- over time it ruins your natural lashes and could cause bald spots in your natural lashline. Remember, our lash extensions are ALREADY curled!

Frequently Asked Questions about Chemical Peels
Q: What are chemical peels?
A. Chemical peels contain different chemical solutions to produce a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin and stimulate the production of new cells. They vary from very light and superficial to medium and more intense medical grade peels. The type of the peel recommended will depend on your skin condition, type, and desired result. The skin’s reaction to the chemical peel is similar to what you would experience with a sunburn. At Bliss Facial Spa we offer several different types of chemical peel blends to fit everyone’s skin care needs such as: Vitamin C/Enzyme, Glycolic/Retinol, Lactic/Kojic, Salicylic/Glycolic, Jessners, and other combinations of these acids.
Q: Who should not have chemical peels?
A. You should not have a chemical peel if you:
ARE USING ACCUTANE
ARE USING RETIN-A (UNLESS DISCONTINUED 1 WEEK PRIOR)
ALLERGIES TO ASPIRIN AND SALICYLATES
HAVE ACTIVE COLD SORES
HAVE DORMANT ECZEMA
ARE PREGNANT OR LACTATING
Q: What results can I expect?
A. Chemical peels will significantly transform your skin by promoting a healthy youthful glow, softening fine lines, fading dark spots and discoloration, and diminishing enlarged pores and acne scars.
Q: How do chemical peels work?
A. The chemical peel removes the top layers of the skin. This stimulates the basal cell layer to regenerate new cells more quickly. By peeling off aged or sun-damaged skin, the skin takes on a healthier, fresher, less aged appearance. Wrinkles on the face will appear softer. Chemical peels also help to clear acne breakouts more rapidly. The peeling action helps to bring the closed and open comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) closer to the surface, helping to clear your complexion faster.
Q: Am I a candidate for a chemical peel?
A. Chemical peels are a very safe and predictable procedure that can be used on any skin type including Caucasian, Asian, Black or Mediterranean. However, consult with you skin specialist regarding the improvement you can expect. Based on the current condition of your skin, and your health history, your specialist will recommend the peel that is right for you.
Q: What will happen during and after the procedure?
A. Once your skin has been cleansed and prepared with a prep solution, the chemicals are applied. The application process takes approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the strength of the chemical solution and how many layers of application are used. Some of the peels are rinsed off and others stay on the skin to penetrate on a deeper level. During and after application some slight stinging and burning may occur. Usually the level of discomfort will diminish quickly. After the procedure your skin will feel soft and smooth, sometimes tight, and you may experience a slight superficial anesthesia to light touch. This is your skin’s natural reaction to chemical stimulation and should diminish within 30-60 minutes after the treatment.
Q: How will I take care of my skin after the procedure?
A. You may be more sensitive to the sun, so limit your sun exposure during the treatment time and for at least one week after the treatment. You should use daily sun protection with total UV protection of SPF 40 or higher. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 2-3 days, as the perspiration may irritate the skin. When washing your face, do not scrub. Use a gentle cleanser and avoid wearing foundation during the days when your skin is actually peeling. Do not “help” your skin to peel to avoid scarring or rashes. Do not have any other facial treatment for at least one week after your peeling is completed. You may resume use of Retin-A, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products or bleaching agents only after the peeling process is complete. We provide detailed post-peel instructions to our clients.
Q: How much will I peel?
A. The intensity of the peel depends on the strength and type of the peel. You may not experience visible peeling with lighter peels. With stronger peels visible peeling will occur usually 2-4 days following the procedure. The peeling will last approximately 3-7 days. Some mild itching and irritation may occur during the peeling process, which is your skin’s normal response.
Q: What should I expect from the consultation?
A. A personal consultation is the first step for everyone considering a Chemical Peel treatment. During this consultation your skin specialist will evaluate your skin type, discuss your specific cosmetic goals, the severity of any sun damage, uneven pigmentation and surface imperfections. The consultation will help determine which chemical procedure can offer you the greatest benefits based on your individual situation.
Q: What should I do prior to my chemical peel appointment?
A. For the best result, it is advisable to avoid sun exposure and the following products and procedures at least one week prior to treatment:
TREATMENTS: ELECTROLYSIS, WAXING, DELAPITORY CREAMS -PRODUCTS: ANY RETIN-A, RENOVA, DIFFERIN (ADAPALENE 0.1%) TAZORAC. ANY PRODUCTS CONTAINING RETINOL, GLYCOLIC ACID, SALICYLIC ACID AND BENZOYL PEROXIDE.
ANY EXFOLIATING PRODUCT THAT MAY BE DRYING OR IRRITATING.
SHAVING THE AREA TO BE PEELED SHOULD BE AVOIDED ON THE DAY OF THE PEEL.
Q: How often can I receive Chemical Peel treatments?
A. Light Chemical exfoliations produce little or no peeling as it removes very superficial skin layers. Those peels can be received as a series of treatments as often as every week. The stronger the peel the longer the distance in between should be. The amount of chemical treatments you receive will depend upon your skin type, your discomfort level during the peeling process, how much your skin peels the first time, and the goals that you and your skin specialist have agreed upon.
