People are going to new lengths to make their eyes look special. Eyelash extensions, professionally applied on natural lashes with a semi-permanent glue are in trend right now.
What exactly is Eyelash Extensions?
There are many types of eyelash extensions out there whether be it synthetic, silk and mink and also the latest Russian and blooming lash. They come in a variety of lengths and sizes. Lash extensions are usually applied by a technician in a beauty salon, using tweezers and a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue. The procedure may took up to a 1 hr plus, and your eyes should remain closed for the duration of the application. For eyelash extensions, normally it may last up to a month.
Is it Safe for Eyes?
To keep the eyes safe, lashes should be applied by an experienced aesthetician in a sanitary setting, with chemicals that are safe for your skin. The procedure does come with risks, namely: trauma to or infection of the eyelid or cornea, allergic reaction to the glue; and permanent or temporary loss of eyelashes. Infection can come from inadequate hygiene in the shop or damage to the eye during application.
Ingredients in the glue can also cause allergic reactions. In the past, some of these glues have contained the allergen formaldehyde. An allergic reaction can trigger pain, itching, redness, and swelling. However, it depends on the person sensitivity level. Rubbing, tugging or pulling can fracture your natural lashes, and even cause permanent damage to the eyelash follicle.
What to take note for doing eyelash extensions?
Be sure to look carefully at the shop or salon, the aesthetician and the ingredients of the products before going ahead with eyelash extensions. Here are a few things to look for and ask about:
- Does the salon have a good reputation? How long have they been in business, and do they practice good hygiene? Read reviews and look at before-and-after photos from other customers.
- What training, certification, and experience does the aesthetician have in lash extensions?
- Ask for the glue’s ingredient list and check it for allergens. Confirm the expiration date has not passed. Request a spot test on the inside of your wrist before the glue is applied to your eyes.
If you have an allergic reaction to extensions, do not try to remove them yourself, as this could damage your eyes. Do not try to treat the reaction on your own. Doing so incorrectly may make the symptoms last much longer. Instead, go see an ophthalmologist immediately.
