Allergies & Allergic Reactions: Part 2

Part 2 of Eyelash Enhancements, Allergies and Allergic Reactions

Medical Tape

A large portion of the population (up to 15%) has severe allergies to medical tape and band aids. Many of these people are not aware of the allergy until they have lash extensions applied. The under eye stickers are similar to medical tape and the skin around the eyes is much more sensitive and sensitive than the skin on the rest of the body… This allergy can appear at any time. Symptoms can develop after years of using lash extensions or they can appear the first time the product is used. To rule out tape allergies, use no stickers or tape on these clients. For most people, gel pass are a good substitute, for others, a plastic mascara shield… Tape allergies squally present themselves to the whole eye area, not just redness and swelling along the upper lash line.

Please inform your certified lash stylist of ANY irritation during the eyelash extensions application and/or after you leave the studio. If you experience this during the application, your stylist should be able to stop and either adjust the tape/ pads or replace with a different material to make the appointment more relaxing. If you experience this AFTER the appointment, contact your lash stylist so that they may record this in your file and use another material during your next appointment.
