Learn to keep your eyelash extensions safe while getting a massage!
How does lying face down on the massage bed impact your eyelash extensions?
Whether volume or classic set eyelash extension, the lash artist uses the lash glue to adhere the eyelash extensions to your natural lashes. When lying face down, the weight of the head exerts pressure on the eyelashes. It exerts a pull on the extensions causing them to shift from their original position. The constant pressure exerted by the head on the eyelash extensions causes the accelerated shedding of the lashes. In addition to this, the added pressure might alter the curl of the lash extensions.
How to position the face cradle on a massage bed with eyelash extensions?
Depending on the type of massage, different massage beds have varying mechanisms. But, one thing is common for all of them; they allow altering the position of the face cradle with an adjustment lever. A face cradle is a specialized device attached to the headpiece of a massage bed. It accommodates the client’s face allowing them to rest their head when lying stomach-down on the bed.
For those who opt for massage treatments with eyelash extensions, the face cradle must be positioned at an appropriate angle so that the head’s weight is evenly distributed across the forehead and the side of the head. The critical thing to remember here is that when you open or close your eyes, the lashes should not touch the fabric of the massage bed.
How to maximize your comfort?
Take a large towel having 2-3 inches width that stretches around the person’s head and face. Roll the towel, gently tying it around the face, tucking the long end under it. Ensure that the forehead takes the maximum weight of the head while resting the face on the towel. You should be able to open and shut your eyes freely without feeling any pressure.
