It’s no secret – eyelash extensions are an amazingly effective solution to achieving the luscious, full, and feathery lash line you’ve always wanted.

One of the key components of every application is the adhesive used to attach individual lashes to the eyelid. Here is everything you need to know about the eyelash extension adhesives we use.

Lash Extension Adhesive at Luxx Lash Salon & Boutique

Unfortunately, many salons use low-grade adhesives that not only result in unnatural-looking lashes, but could also pose serious risks of harm to your eyes.  At Luxx Lash Salon & Boutique, we are dedicated to serving our clients with the highest quality products in the world. This extends to the eyelash extension department. We are proud to use products from Xtreme Lashes® Extensions, one of the global leaders in the beauty industry, at every step of the procedure – from adhesive to individual lashes.

One of the most unique aspects of all of their adhesives is that the primary ingredient is used for suture-less wound closure in hospital emergency and operating rooms! This makes it very effective and completely safe to use around the eyes.

At Luxx Lash, we use two different types of Xtreme Lashes®  Eyelash Extensions adhesive:  FlexFusion®  and HP-Ultra®.  FlexFusion is a hypoallergenic, medical-grade adhesive that delivers fast application, flexible and long-lasting adhesion, and is perfect for clients with sensitive eyes or those who wear contact lenses.

Do Lash Extension Adhesives Contain Formaldehyde?

formulated using the same properties and ingredients found
in medical grade adhesives.

That being said, completely “Formaldehyde Free” cyanoaryclates does not exist. Ultra low amounts of formaldehyde naturally occurs as the adhesive degrades overtime. The formaldehyde inXtreme Lashes® Adhesives has not been measurable as it is below the lowest detectable level of lab tests(HPLC/UV) that measure formaldehyde.

Understanding Formaldehyde Content

In fact, Formaldehyde is found in much higher concentration in numerous household products that we use everyday, such as Gerber Baby Wash, Elmer’s Glue, wooden Furniture and flooring, carpets,
clothing fabric, gas stoves, and drapery. Formaldehyde is even found
naturally within the human body.
