Eyelash extensions are a semipermanent solution for making eyelashes look made up without mascara.
When correctly applied by a licensed and trained professional, eyelash extensions are a safe way to enhance the look of natural lashes.
According to healthline, when incorrectly applied or with the wrong adhesive, they can cause discomfort, infection, and permanent lash loss.
Unlike temporary, false eyelashes, which attach to the lid on a single strip, eyelash extensions are individual lashes. They attach directly to your natural lashes, one at a time. This process takes several hours to complete.
Eyelash extensions are designed to remain intact for the average growth cycle of natural lashes, around six weeks to two months. During this time, maintenance is required to keep the extensions looking fresh and natural.
Eyelash extensions are made from several different types of material. These include synthetics, such as faux mink and plastic fibers, or natural materials, such as silk and mink.
No matter their material, eyelash extensions should be attached with nonirritating, waterproof eyelash or surgical glue that’s designed to withstand sweat and oil.
Medical-grade glues may be your best bet. They’re fume-free and nonirritating for most skin types.
Risk of getting eyelashes extensions
Most complications from eyelash extensions result from a skin reaction or allergy to the chemicals used in the glue adhesive. Unsanitary conditions can also cause complications.
Symptoms you may experience include:
1. stinging and burning in the eye and on the eyelid
2. severe swelling
3. red or bloodshot eyes
