About Lash Extensions
Your eyes can be one of the most captivating features on your face; however, lashes that are light colored, have broken over time, or are shorter than you would like them to be can detract from your overall appearance. Lash extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of your natural eyelashes. Performed at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL, each lash is individually applied to your natural lashline, creating a voluminous and effortless look. Each full set includes a home care kit of lash wipes, mascara, and lash brush, so you can maintain your look outside of the spa. If you're interested in receiving a lash extension treatment, then you can contact our office today.
Lash Extensions Ideal Candidates
You will be a great candidate for lash extensions if:
- You have lashes that have lost their thickness and length and have become broken or very short
- You desire a natural-looking result
- You are not a good candidate for or do not wish to undergo prescription lash enhancements such as Latisse®
"My first time getting a hydra facial and WOW. I am so surprised about how much smoother and clearer my skin is! The staff was super kind to me and the service had no wait with my appointment. I loved how the person who did my facial was explaining the whole process for me. First they did an assessment of my skin with taking photos of the bacteria that there was under my top layer. Boy was I surprised at how much bacteria they was. They recommended the high intensity hydra facial which took about thirty minutes. First they cleaned my face, then steamed it and then applied a sucking type of device that cleaned and pulled all of my gunk and pores from my skin. It did tingle but it was a good tingle. The only place where they tried to put the device on my skin that didn’t work was my forehead because of my nerves the pressure was too strong. But my forehead wasn’t an area where I had acne. Mostly on my cheeks. After that, she recommended some products for my skin that I did buy and I have been using. They work FANTASTICALLY. She also told me to cut milk and dairy as much as possible due to the hormonal acne that I was having. So I did. Now to Oat milk and Coconut milk yogurt both Chobani that I LOVE. After the facial she showed me a mirror in a bright room and wow my acne scars have reduced dramatically and my skin has never been so smooth and clear. Next month I will definitely go back to this magical place. It also has massages and waxing if you’re interested in doing that."- M.I. / Yelp / Jul 09, 2020

"I absolutely love this spa and it’s staff. During my consultation, Jules and I discussed what my skincare goals were and decided on the Hydrafacial and IPL treatments (so thankful for these recommendations!) Melissa, my aesthetician, was the BEST and truly cared about skin and beauty. She helped me figure out a routine I can easily do at home and in the past month I have seen a significant change in my pore size, acne scars and wrinkles. The Hydrafacial leaves my skin feeling fresh and brighter. Sarah did my IPL treatment made a huge difference on broken blood vessels and my acne. Thank you to everyone at Pura Vida, can’t wait for my next appointment!"- S.J. / Google / Jul 08, 2020
What to Expect with Lash Extensions
Our lash specialist will discuss your needs and desired outcome prior to the treatment. She will carefully place each lash onto your natural lash using a glue. Your extensions can be customized and arranged in a way that accommodates your desires and what you're looking for. She will take great care to attach only one lash extension to a single natural lash. This procedure does not require downtime and is generally comfortable.
Lash Extensions Anticipated Results
For the best results, do not get your lashes wet for 24 hours. For the first 48 hours after your appointment, avoid steam showers, facials, saunas and swimming pools. Avoid tanning beds, waxing, chemical peels, or laser treatments around the eyes. Do not apply mascara or any kind of eye creams for 12 – 24 hours following your session. Never use waterproof mascara. Oils of any kind should be avoided completely during the duration of your extensions, as this can cause the glue to lose its adhesive properties and come loose. You should also refrain from touching and rubbing your eyes to prolong the wear. Do not use an eyelash curler with your extensions. If you want more curl to your lashes, be sure to tell your eyelash specialist ruing your your appointment. Generally, you can expect your fuller, longer lashes to last for around 2 – 3 weeks, after which you can come back in for an eyelash fill to maintain them.
Plan Your Procedure
Broken, thin, or short lashes no longer have to detract from your appearance. With lash extensions, you can get the natural-looking yet stunning eyes you've been hoping for with a single session. Sometimes, mascara isn't enough to take your lashes to the next level, which is why we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Pura Vida today. We can help you achieve those gorgeous eyes.
