Anything that gains popularity is sure to garner a helluva of media attention; eyelash extensions are no exception. The lash extensions industry has been one of the most upcoming beauty treatments. It has seen a steady rise in its graph since its conception. Media treats everything positively and negatively, but the negative aspects are focused on to grab more attention.

Videos and articles with swollen pairs of eyes highlighting the dangers of eyelash extensions are on the round in the social circuit. Such news splashes portray only one side of the story. It scares potential first-timers who wish to embrace this treatment and enjoy the luxury of luscious, fluttery-volume lashes.

As a renowned lash salon, we wish to clarify a few facts. We certainly don’t want women who want to try eyelash extensions to be terrified after reading or watching these horror stories. It is irksome to let the media criticize our industry so unfairly. We don’t want to keep our dear gals from looking fab and confident with their classic set eyelash extensions because the media prefers to blow their one-sided story out of proportion.

Read on to know our viewpoint on media warnings about eyelash extension:

What could lead to swollen and puffy eyes with lash extensions?

When you see photos of women with extremely swollen eyes, it is 100% of the time due to an allergic reaction to the main ingredient (cyanoacrylate) used in lash glue. The chances of you experiencing this allergy are minuscule. They are very uncommon and barely affect less than 0.5% of the clients. Most of the clients who witness this allergic reaction are prone to latex allergies. They will unfortunately never be able to opt for lash extensions due to it.

This allergic reaction is very similar to any food allergy. You would not come to know you have an allergy to a specific food substance unless you try it and experience allergy symptoms. In final words, the allergy is neither the fault of the salon nor eyelash extensions. It is purely due to a genetic factor and the lash artist can do nothing to avoid it.

In addition to leaving you with an allergy, visiting an unprofessional lash salon can have a nasty outcome on your natural lashes. The artist can cut, damage, or brutally hamper your lashes and eyelids without the requisite expertise. After all, it’s a question of one of the most delicate parts of your body, and it is always advisable to be safe than sorry.
