Eyelash Extensions—Am I The Right Candidate?

According to a recent ABC News Report, false eyelashes have become an everyday accessory; it’s a thriving industry projected to reach a whopping $1.5 billion over the next five years. Eyelash extensions are single strands of fake lashes made from materials such as mink and applied to the eyelashes by a trained technician. This helps in enhancing their volume, length, and curliness. Every extension is custom made for each client and is curved to replicate a natural eyelash, making them feel completely real and natural.

Who’ll benefit from lash extensions?

Women of all ages are looking to save the time they spend on getting ready for work or to go out—lash extensions do just the trick. They open up your eyes and lift your features, adding to your beauty. Most people who’re looking for thicker, fuller lashes but don’t have the time or patience for mascaras and curlers are the perfect candidates for lash extensions. Others may get them for special occasion to oomph to their look.
One prime benefit of lash extensions is that you wake up looking gorgeous without the hassle of applying layers of mascara.

Almost anyone can enjoy the privilege of eyelash extensions. However, certain conditions can make them inappropriate.

1. Insufficient Lash Hairs

The pre-requisite for getting lash extensions is to have healthy natural lash hairs that are at least 3mm long. If there’s a shortage of lash hair, you’ll be required to wait for the healthy lashes to grow back to stick the extensions.

2. Health Conditions

Medical conditions can prohibit you from lash extensions. If you have undergone cataract or eye surgery, this would not be a suitable procedure for you. Moreover, if you’re suffering from back pain or have had back surgery, you might want to give this second thought as the procedure requires you to lie on your back for a sufficiently long duration. It’s advisable to consult your doctor before getting extensions.

3. Sensitivity

Even though eyelash extensions are not applied to the skin, if you have an adhesive reaction to lashes, this treatment is not right. The irritation may aggravate, or the extensions may fall off prematurely. It’s best to consult your lash artist and seek to advice.
