Allergic Reactions during Eyelash Extension Application – Nothing to Worry

Like every other good thing, eyelash extensions too are associated to a few bad things like allergic reactions.

However, allergic reactions are not necessarily caused by the eyelash extensions themselves. There are a lot of things involved in lash extension application, like glue, under-eye pad, tweezes and so on.

Allergic reactions can be caused by one or more of these things too. For example, the under-eye pad used during the application can also cause allergic reactions.

It’s commonly thought that the ingredients in the pads cause allergic reactions. But in fact, wrong use of the pads causes them.

So, you can understand that there’s nothing to worry about lash extensions.

You should only take care of choosing eyelash extensions in Sydney at Fancy Lash because their lash technicians are well-trained and experienced, and use the under-eye pads and other things perfectly.

Common Problems with the Wrong Use of Under-eye Pads

Bruised Eyeball and Bloodshot

One of the major reasons of the bloodshot is placing the pads or medical grade tape too high and thereby scratching the eyeballs causing a bloodshot.

Swelling of Under-eye Skin

Under-eye skin problems range from mild redness, burning sensation, itching and tearing to more serious cases of inflammation like moderate-to-severe redness and swelling of skin.

Prevention of Under-eye Swelling

Your lash artist should choose the right pads for your eye shape.

She should place it gently, at least 1-2mm below the bottom waterline.

She should make sure the pads or medical tape doesn’t break the waterline and prevents swelling, bruised eyeball, gooey pads and bloodshot.

You should remember that if you keep talking during the application process, eye pads can move upward. Hence your lash artist should adjust the pads.

Additional Things to Secure Lower Lashes

Medical Tape

Your lash artist should essentially have medical grade tapes because it’s great for gently pulling the lid away to help the lash artist reach the tiny lashes in the corners.

The artist will apply the under-eye gel pad first, then tape the lower lashes down on top of the pad to prevent the eye pads from slipping and also to protect the lower lashes from glue.

Using Under-eye Patch

Your lash artist will clean and dry the eye area wish lash foam. She will then carefully remove the pad from the plastic liner.

Then she will apply the pad to the top of the lower lashes, making sure there is no contact with the eye or waterline.

After finishing the treatment, she should remove the pads beginning from the outer corner.
