Eyelash extensions are to beauty what sliced bread is to baking – the best invention ever! But with any game-changing beauty treatment, there are certain safety measures and precautions that both the lash wearer and the lash artist should keep in mind when deciding to undergo a lash extensions session.
When applied properly, beautiful lash extensions will have a natural looking appearance as though they grew out from your own eyelids, all full and fabulous! Conversely, improperly applied lash extensions can look unnatural and unflattering, and could possibly open a pandora’s box of problems ranging from slight irritation to serious chemical burns and even vision impairment!
Now we’re not trying to scare you away from this awesome beauty enhancement, but instead trying to help you make an informed decision when looking to get lash extensions. By following these simple tips, you can avoid an unfortunate lash extensions disaster, and be on your way to fabu-lashes.
Choose your lash artist wisely
You are essentially having tiny hairs, whether real or synthetic, individually adhered to your own natural lashes; and that’s a very intricate job requiring specialized training. So your first concern should be choosing a highly skilled lash artist with the best eyelash extensions training in proper safety measures and techniques.
Lash artists trained by Dreamlash Academy have the best eyelash extensions certification and are highly equipped to deliver the lashes of your dreams. They are trained to use the correct materials, tools and techniques to deliver your best lash extensions experience, all while taking care to protect your eyes, natural lashes and the sensitive skin around that area during the application process.
With a steady and flawless technique, Dreamlash artists deliver a seamless application of lash extensions that will have people wondering, “Maybe she’s born with it?” Ultimately, the Dreamlash Academy certification is the best testimonial of a lash artist’s competence. With that certification in tow, you can be assured that you’re in good hands and feel confident that your lash extensions will look fantastic and be long-lasting.
Use only the best eyelash adhesive
Aside from the lash extensions themselves, the eyelash extensions adhesive is the most important material in lash extensions application. Before you even get into the lash artist’s chair, ensure that he or she uses only the safest and most effective eyelash extensions adhesive available. When paired with Dreamlash primer, the Dreamlash Quickie Adhesive is most effective at keeping your lash extensions intact, as it is heat-resistant, water-resistant and steam-resistant. This means your fabulous faux lashes will remain full and lustrous through most daily activities.
Furthermore, this semi-permanent eyelash extensions glue will not damage your natural lashes. It is hypoallergenic and formaldehyde-free, and also has anti-microbial properties to help minimize the possibility of bacterial infections.
Though there may be “cheaper” formulations on the market, in the long run it will cost you far more money to fix any problems that arose because of ineffective and unsafe lash glue. So stick with the Dreamlash formulation and you are sure to have a fantastic lash extensions experience.
Ultimately, responsibility lies with both the lash wearer and lash artist to ensure that the lash extensions are as perfect as possible, without exposing the wearer to any adverse effects. The lash client should ensure that her technician is Dreamlash certified and uses only the best quality materials provided by Dreamlash Academy. Likewise, the onus is on the lash artist to keep their lash training up-to-date and regularly refresh their technique and lash extensions kit with knowledge and supplies from Dreamlash Academy.
