If you've ever had a reaction to eyelash glue, you simply won't be able to have eyelashes again. It doesn't matter if you've had eyelash extensions for years and then react randomly once. Reacting that time means that you have developed an allergy to the main ingredient in the adhesive (cyanoacrylate) and, unfortunately, you will react again. While irritations may have signs similar to those of allergies, they are often less severe and go away once the adhesive heals.
This usually occurs within the first 24 hours after application. While a small percentage of customers develop an allergic reaction to glue for eyelash extensions, this allergy in and of itself is not particularly dangerous. The symptoms will go away once the eyelash extensions are removed. Once eyelash extensions are removed, allergy symptoms should decrease.
Unfortunately, customers with an allergy to eyelash extension adhesive will always experience a reaction. If the allergy to eyelash extensions does not go away after 24 hours, be sure to remove them with a special liquid (remover). If the reaction does not stop and even “gains momentum”, medical attention will be needed. Allergies to eyelash extensions can be triggered by the body's hypertensive reaction against any type of cosmetic product used by the eyelash technician.
Therefore, people who are allergic to eyelash extension glue or any of its ingredients can often experience symptoms such as redness, swelling, swelling, and itching around the eyes. While you can never be 100% sure what type of allergy you're facing, without further research, there are three main causes that cause customers to experience allergies caused by eyelash extension glue. While some of the warning signs between an allergy to eyelash extensions and an irritation may be similar, there are a few key differences. Nobody (not even the most experienced professional) can predict how your body will react to eyelash extensions.
This is a good course of action for customers who are wondering how to help puffy eyelids after eyelash extensions. And if the glue does not contain cyanoacrylate, its adhesive functions are minimized and eyelash extensions will not last long. When observing the correct extension technique, the eyelash stylist uses a small drop of glue, preventing it from coming into contact with the delicate skin of the eyelids. While an eyelash extension reaction that causes irritation will go away, an allergic reaction gets worse over time.
