They could change your makeup routine. Your results depend on what you're working with. Improper application may result in loss of eyelashes. The key to good eyelash extensions is the method of application.
If your lashes are applied professionally, with high-quality products, they will never tear or break your natural lashes. Also, you should be careful not to pull them or pick them up. Turn off your mobile phone just before the appointment. When booking your eyelash extension service, make sure that your eyelash artist is a licensed esthetician (rather than a cosmetologist).
Aestheticians are specifically trained in skin-oriented treatments, such as facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and, you guessed it, eyelash services. Ideally, the safest thing to do is to visit a licensed esthetician in a studio that focuses on eyelash services. Next, two eyelash experts, a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon discuss everything you need to know about eyelash extensions, from finding the right eyelash artist to costs, risks and everything in between. But with that said, you can do everything right and still find that eyelash extensions cause your natural lashes to break.
They may start to look a little strange after a few weeks, as eyelash extensions aren't all removed at the same time, in which case reloading them (every two to three weeks) is an excellent option, says eyelash expert Tirzah Shirai, founder of BlinkBar. During the application process, synthetic fibers are carefully applied one at a time, usually 80 to 140 per eye, with a specially formulated semi-permanent glue and applied directly to the hair at the base of the eyelashes, not to the skin, Richardson says. Since each extension applies to its own individual tab, when the tab comes off, so will the extension. The result was great (I woke up with bangs full of eyelashes and went to work without putting on any makeup), but after a week I started to wake up with my pillowcase covered with eyelashes, both extensions and my own natural eyelashes.
And try taking breaks where you let your natural lashes do their thing (and use an eyelash conditioning serum to help them recover their health). As long as you consult a trained professional to apply and remove them and follow all maintenance advice, eyelash extensions should not damage your natural lashes. But with that said, eyelashes are hair, after all, and in most cases they will grow back in a few weeks. The eyes will remain closed during the application of the eyelash extensions.
To avoid any discomfort, it is always recommended to remove your contact lenses so that your eyes are comfortable in a natural and rested state. When it comes to safety, dermatologists compare eyelash extensions to acrylic nails; they're not necessarily good for you, but they're not likely to cause serious health problems, so you may decide that the aesthetics of the extensions outweigh potential side effects (which usually include irritation, infection, and allergic reactions). Your technician will clean and remove any eyelash extensions that have grown too long before applying 25 to 45 new extensions to new lashes to give them a complete, refreshed look. In the United States, there is no law that imposes age restrictions on those who wear eyelash extensions, and there is really no set age that is considered best for wearing them.
