If your eyes get mildly irritated after you've added eyelash extensions, there are several things you can try at home to ease the discomfort: cold compresses, topical hydrocortisone cream, eye drops for allergies, and oral antihistamine products. Applying a cold compress to the eye is an easy way to alleviate some of the symptoms of eye redness. The cold compress relaxes the blood vessels in the eyes and reduces redness. In addition, it helps reduce swelling and burning.
You can easily use a cold compress at home; after removing and rinsing your eyes, apply a cold compress to your eyes. It will be useful to use ice packs or a frozen gel mask for the eyes. The cooling sensation will help soothe the eye area and reduce puffiness. Try sleeping with a cold gel eye mask during the night.
It's vital to be vigilant when buying extensions, make sure they're from a trusted eyelash extension provider to avoid these problems. Any future eyelash extension appointments should be done with extreme caution, as there is no guarantee that you won't have another reaction. The vapors of the adhesive may come into contact with the mucous membrane if the eyelash stylist does not properly cover the lower row of eyelashes or strongly lifts the upper eyelid during treatment. If the eyelash stylist places them directly on the skin of the eyelids or on the roots, the extensions can damage the mucous membrane.
Bloodshot eyes after eyelash extensions are usually due to sensitivity to adhesive formaldehyde vapors or an allergic reaction. These effects are usually caused by the ingredients contained in the glue and the eyelash extension removers. For the most part, not many people react to any part of the process of applying eyelash extensions. Below is a table that summarizes the main differences between a chemical burn and an allergic reaction caused by eyelash extensions.
Something to keep in mind: If your eyes don't heal after two or three days, remove your eyelash extensions and go to a health center to be examined. Both eyelash stylists and clients should recognize the cause of eye redness after eyelash extensions in order to properly plan the next steps. In case of complications, the eye doctor will most likely recommend removing the eyelash extensions. If you notice any signs of swelling or pain around your eyes after you put on your eyelash extensions, ask your eyelash stylist to remove them and contact a doctor right away.
Eyelash extension manufacturers must ensure that their eyelash business meets standards and produces body-friendly products.
