FIRST…A LITTLE ON “LASH THEORY”

It’s new in some circles, yet the tres chic have long since known the power of the augmented lash. Simply put, beautiful lashes beguile both the onlooker and the wearer.

Do extensions cause your lashes to fall out?

No, not when they are precisely bonded and placed right. When lashes are done with the active growth phase, they will shed normally. Integrity lashes are known to shed singly. If extensions are the wrong fit or stuck together they can fall out together, pulling out in clusters or clumps. Your lashes are given individualized attention and are isolated and precisely bonded. They are matched to the right variable and placed right according to your unique anatomy.

Are There Any Side Effects From The Adhesive?

Yes. Some people can develop an allergic reaction to the adhesive (5% of the population is allergic to cyanoacrylates). It usually presents after 3-4 exposures (3-4 months after initial application) to the adhesive. For those allergic, the morning after their service the lids of the eyes will be puffy- more swollen than a night of crying. The eyeballs will be “quiet”- no redness or discharge.

This condition cannot be avoided by changing brands of adhesive. It will occur every time lashes are applied to an allergic person using the cyanoacrylate. There is relief and clients can continue to enjoy extensions with the allergy, but it will require a visit to a knowing ophthalmologist familiar with working with the nuances of extens...
