BEFORE:Look for a practitioner or salon that is well established and is dedicated solely to providing lash extensions as their primary business.Ask to see the products being used. Read the label of the product to check for any chemicals being used that you may be allergic to. The adhesive used should be 'pharmaceutical grade' and be safe for use on the eye area.The lashes themselves are usually advertised as synthetic, silk or mink. A softer, lighter lash such as mink will put less tension on the hair follicle.Make sure they use a fan to keep fumes away from your eyes at the workstation and that they 'cure' each lash with either a mist of isopropyl alcohol at the end of the application or by rinsing the eyes straight afterward so no adhesive residue remains on the lashes.Consider having an allergy test done first. While allergies aren't that common, it's better to be safe than sorry.
AFTER:Follow the aftercare advice given by the practitioner: if you want to go swimming or use mascara on your extensions, check with the practitioner first as this can vary depending on the kind of procedure you have had done.See a health professional if you experience any discomfort or irritation. A problem with your eye can quickly go from bad to worse, so don't wait. An ophthalmologist (eye specialist) is the best choice, although you'll need a referral from your GP.
