What Are the Risks of Removing Eyelash Extensions at Home?

My eyelash technician always stresses the importance of having lash extensions removed professionally. As natural lashes grow with the extension still on them, they can eventually split in half. The skin around the eyes is sensitive and the natural lashes are delicate, so if you try to remove your eyelash extension at home, you run the risk of damaging your eyes, natural lashes, and skin. In addition, it's easy to spread bacteria to the eye area.

All of this can be avoided if left to professionals. If you can't wait for false lashes to fall off with natural lashes patiently, it can be even harder to remove them. Or, if the eyelash extensions were applied incorrectly and irritate the eyes in any way, it's best to remove them. But if you have no choice but to remove your eyelash extensions at home, it's important to assess the risks of deciding to do so.

I can't stress enough that this process must be done very carefully if you want to avoid damaging your natural lashes. First, depending on the type of remover you use, the risks to your eyes, eyelashes and skin may change. If you experience an allergic reaction after eyelash extensions, it is recommended to contact your eyelash stylist to have them removed immediately. Eyelash artists are professionally trained and know exactly how to use professional adhesive solvent without damaging natural lashes or damaging the skin around the eyes.

The only time natural lashes hurt or damage (natural lashes fall together) is when the eyelash extensions were applied with the wrong method in the first place. I have had my eyelash extensions for about 2 years and, although I love the way they look, I have had a lot of problems with them. Many of my customers have had their eyelash extensions for several years without taking a break without any problems. We always keep track of the health of your eyelashes during the time you spend with us and we'll let you know if there are any changes.

Professional glue for eyelash extensions is made of chemical ingredients to soften the hard joints of the glue for eyelash extensions, so that the extensions glide safely.
