What You Should Know About Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are quickly becoming a popular way to enhance your natural beauty and cut down on daily makeup time. They’re customizable, painless and offer a more dramatic or subtle look. But they’re not without their downsides, and some people may even experience side effects such as eye infections or allergies.

The lash extension process involves applying semi-permanent faux, mink or synthetic fibers to your natural eyelashes with a specially-formulated glue. They’re usually applied one lash at a time to create a fuller, more natural appearance. However, they can also be molded into a more dramatic or edgy style. Your lash artist will begin by asking you what type of look you want and choose the perfect length and curl strength for your eyes.

You should expect your eyelash extensions to last about four to ten weeks before they naturally shed along with your natural lashes. You can schedule regular “fills” to compensate for this shedding cycle, but this can be costly and time-consuming.

While the application of lash extensions shouldn’t damage your natural lashes, the adhesive used can cause irritation and/or an allergic reaction, which is why it’s important to visit a licensed and certified professional for your lash extensions. Additionally, if the lash extensions are too heavy or long for your natural lashes, they can cause them to become thinner and shorter over time due to the strain of holding the weight of the extension.

Another potential problem is a condition called blepharitis, which is an infection of the eyelid skin that causes it to become itchy and red. If left untreated, this can lead to permanent damage and a loss of the natural lashes.
