Someone once said, “Use your eyes; don’t lose them”. Eye Batter Pro cosmetics understands this concept well enough to know that your client’s safety is pivotal, above and beyond everything else. It is important to let your clients understand that eyelash extensions are for professional use only. They should know that applying extensions themselves or by a non-professional may result in fatal damage to the eyes or in worst case scenario loss of vision.
Safety should be the number one priority in good client treatment and Eye Batter understands that. Applying lashes the wrong way can cause allergy reactions that can be detrimental. It’s vital to check all safety precautions before placing extensions on their precious peepers. Never compromise with anything regarding health. It’s a wonderful thing that women can now have the kind of lashes they have always dreamt of but everything in the world has risks. Even so, Eye Batter does not offer products that put your client in any kind of danger. Our extensions are not heavy: they do not exceed 0.25mm because heavy eyelashes can put the long term health of your client’s natural eyelashes at risk.
Advice your clients against using eye makeup containing glycol based ingredients because this will result in failure of lashes to bond. During the procedure, you can show your clients your proof of training just to ensure them that they are in safe hands. Temporary or permanent loss of their natural lashes due to faulty application can happen if the extensions damage the follicle or are so heavy that they put tension on the eyelash causing breakage. In this case, you can remove the extensions. Also, don’t use glue that contains formaldehyde as it is a great allergen
Eye Batter tips for a flawless lash application process:
* The glue should be shaken for at least one minute before the application process. Disregard the first drop of glue.
* Draw the eyelash extension through the glue from approximately 2/3 down right to the end. Then stroke the extensions over lashes a couple of times to coat it with the adhesive before you place the lash as this may affect the bond if the process is not done.
* Use glue sufficiently; not sparingly because less glue equals less durability time. Make sure the extensions are 100% bonded. Too much glue can also result in clumping together. The lash base connecting base must be perfectly bonded. If a repair is needed, do it quickly because once the glue is dry, it’s impossible to repair. The magic always lies in the bonding.
Always remember that it is better to be safe than sorry. Certification and training is important for any esthetician. Here is to Eye Batter winks and smiles!
