Precautions and Who is and is not a good candidate for lash extensions?
Unfortunately, not everyone can have Lash Extensions. It is important to perform an allergy check before a full application of lash extensions. Some ingredients in the lash adhesive may cause an allergic reaction, consisting of swollen, itchy, red, watering eyes. The last thing you want to do is spend your time and money, just to have an allergic reaction that may require a visit to the doctor and medication. If it were to happen, the risk for real damage is rare, but it is important to have the eyelash extensions removed by a professional as soon as possible.
Only by having an allergy test by your Last Artist will determine if you are allergic. Unfortunately, sometimes clients who have been getting lash extensions for a while can, over time, develop a reaction to the adhesive called contact dermatitis. This results from repeated exposure to an allergen that your body just does not agree with. This would mean that you are no longer a candidate for lash extensions.
If you are a stomach sleeper, or you sleep on your face often enough, you would have to accommodate your lashes and plan and ensure you sleep on your back or carefully on your side. This way you would not incidentally rub your extensions off. This could not only cause you to lose your extension, but possibly your natural lashes too, as well as waste the time and money spent on them.
