Before Lash Extensions & Immediately After Lash Extensions
Lash extensions are a temporary silk lash that is attached to single natural lashes. You can achieve a natural look or a more voluminous look. Do not expect to look like the Kardashians who have very thick mink lashes that are heavy. Dr Vicky applies only the highest quality silk lashes to your natural lashes. Light and magnification are absolute musts when having lash extensions applied.
Some individuals are allergic to glues, so lash extensions may not be suited to you, as the procedure involves a semi-permanent glue. Please advise of any allergies or adverse reactions.
Lash extensions usually last just over 2 weeks. At this point you will require infills. Beyond the 3 week mark you will require a full set of lashes again. So if you would like to keep your lash extensions looking fresh, 2- 2.5 weekly visits are recommended.
Of course if you’ve had lash extensions for several months, your remaining extensions can exfoliate naturally with your natural lashes that they are attached to, or they can be professionally removed. And you may like to have a lash extension holiday or have a lash lift and tint instead. A lash extension break is recommended if you’ve had lash extensions for many consecutive months. Lashes usually grow back fully within 2 months of removing lash extensions.
Please remove all makeup and contact lenses prior to your visit.
If it is your FIRST Aliki Amara lash extension visit or visit 12 months or more after your previous visit, please complete the Pre-Treatment Online Consent Form prior to your allocated time.

- Avoid touching your lashes for 3 hours
- Do not get your lashes wet & avoid steam for 24h
- Do not use a lash curler.

- Brush lashes with disposable comb morning and night to keep lashes separated.
- Avoid oil based makeup remover on your eyes.
- Keep sunscreen & makeup away from your lashes.
- Cleanse your lashes with a recommended lash shampoo or sensitive oil-free face wash daily.
- If your eyelashes get wet, dry with a hairdryer on a low cool setting.
- After washing/a shower, dab your lashes dry as your towel will rip your lashes out if you wipe your eyes.

- Cotton pillows tend to pull & rub your lashes causing them to fall out. Use a silk pillowcase to help stop this.
