Time and again, and seems to be happening more frequently lately, ladies arrive at Occhi’ Lash & Brow in dire need of Corrective work to restore their lashes due to damages caused by very poor application and/or poor overall care. Using years of training, experience and knowledge the staff at Occhi’ are able to remove faulty eyelash extensions and apply new ones properly. They also advise clients on proper lash care to insure healthy eyelashes.

This page is dedicated to examples of how the staff have corrected poor work and helped damaged lashes become healthy.

The client below came to Occhi’ after having her lashes dissipated by a eyelash curler. She was put on a Vitamin supplement and extensions were attached. After 2 months of care and extensions, her lashes are healthy and the extensions are holding very well.

This client came to us with extremely damaged natural lashes due to previously poor work at another facility. The damage to her natural lashes was caused by weighted, thick inexpensive lashes and an excessive amount of adhesive use.

The photos represented here are “before and after” pictures taken the same day. We now have this client on a Lash Growth serum,as well as a Lash Support supplement that will strengthen her natural lashes and promote growth.
