What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of hair expertly attached to each individual eyelash with a special medical grade adhesive. They are applied to the eyelash itself and are never in direct contact with your skin. Eyelashes can be acrylic, synthetic silk, synthetic mink, real mink, or even real human hair. They range in thickness and curl shape. They range in look and durability. At Phoenix Medspa, we specialize in Silk extensions. These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type. Because they are softer and more porous, they tend to hold on slightly longer than the synthetic ones.
They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous, but sometimes quite as dense/thick as the synthetic lashes. Because they are lighter weight, they are often a much better option if your lashes are weak or fine. They definitely last longer than synthetic lashes too.
Our expert technicians can design just about any look you desire. We believe quality is key.
Why we don’t "Count Lashes"
Many salons count lashes and charge by the lash. This is not the policy of Phoenix Medspa! With the traditional eyelash extension technique, a single lash is applied to each of your natural lashes. The different looks ("Natural" and "Glamour") are created in several ways. Technicians can vary the number of lashes applied, the lash length, the lash thickness, and finally the lash shape by varying the lengths applied.
However, the traditional application is limited by the number of natural lashes you have. This is why we do not “count lashes” like other lash salons. We think it is disingenuous to imply that more lashes can be applied than nature and genetics have allowed for you naturally.
We choose to offer different “looks” and allow you to choose which look you prefer. Simply put, the technician will work out a way to achieve the look that you desire and apply as many lashes as it takes to achieve it.
YOUR LASH CONSULTATION
Upon arriving at Phoenix Medical Spa, you will sit down with one of our expert technicians to discuss the look you desire. They will tailor something specific to achieve what you want. They will discuss lash type, lash thickness, curl shape and design shape best for your eye. A beautiful natural look is usually the desired goal for most, and achieving that is different for everyone. Everything from naturally under-stated to extreme glamour is possible – it's all up to you.
