What questions should you ask when searching for a reputable salon or professional?
Because of the sensitive nature of the lashes and the surrounding area, finding someone who is certified to apply the lashes is definitely a must. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or more importantly, your eyes.
Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes.
Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. Typically, each eye sheds 2 – 5 lashes per day so typically, people lose between 14 and 35 lashes per week.
What happens if glue gets in your eyes?
Since your eyes are shut the whole-time lash extensions are being applied, no glue should get into your eye. To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde.
Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.
If you experience any burning or discomfort during the procedure, you should certainly speak up. You may need to have your technician change the glue as there are sensitive glues. Getting lash extensions should be a completely pain-free experience.
Can you go blind?
No. Your technician should be trained properly to apply the adhesive and lashes in a way that is harmless. Your eyes should remain closed the entire time of the procedure. No matter how bad an allergic reaction may get, you will never go blind. Although it is rare, the worst-case scenario is that you need to go to the eye doctor to get specific eye drops to treat an allergic reaction.
Can you shower or swim right away? Are there products you should absolutely avoid?
Keep water away from your lashes for at least 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it is set and cause lashes to fall off. We will provide you with after care instructions for you to take home. However, as a general rule, oil-based products or makeup removers around the eye area are not recommended. Also, using water-proof mascara on the extensions is not recommended for any type of glue, as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.
Finding an experienced and reputable lash artist and a salon that uses high quality materials is key! It is not worth damaging either your natural lashes or eyes to try and save a few dollars as it may end up costing you more to fix the damage done. Our master lash artists at KYOU Beauty Salon have years of experience and we use only the highest quality formaldehyde free glue and fluffy, lightweight silk extensions that will not pull out your natural lashes!
