Am I allergic to eyelash extensions? What can I do for eyelash extension sensitivity? Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon talks about Eyelash Sensitivity.
Eyelash extension sensitivity can happen to anyone but there are a few signs before even going to the appointment. Likely, if you are allergic to false eyelashes (strip lashes) or false nails (including shellac), you can be allergic. Darker skin tones are also more likely to be allergic as well as they are usually more allergic to skin care as well.
While these can be warning signs, it does not mean you are but here is how you can prevent it.
Before your appointment, do not wear makeup for 24-48 hours. Makeup can sometimes irritate the eye.
Benadryl is also a good idea, we suggest non drowsy for after the appointment.
We also will teach you a new way to help hydrate the eye and decrease sensitivity while you sleep. If you have had an allergy to eyelash extensions, we recommend going without them for a month or longer to give the eyes time to recuperate. You can reverse sensitivity with lash extension, I have done this personally. Please come in for a consultation as to how to go about this at our salon Red Lotus Skin and Lash.
