Eyelash extension is a cosmetic procedure that involves sticking synthetic eyelashes to your own eyelashes to achieve elongation and extra volume.
Currently, two technologies of eyelash extension are practiced: the Japanese technology, which involves swollen build-up, and eyelash extensions.
Depending on the materials for eyelash extension, the individual features of the structure, the condition of the eyelashes and the skin, the effect of enlargement is maintained from 1 to 3 months.
Japanese eyelash extension technology. Advantages and disadvantages
Japanese eyelash extension technology involves gluing each artificial eyelash to its own. This way of eyelash extensions allows you to substantially adjust the volume and shape of the cilia line, to create an additional effect. For this type of extension, artificial artificial eyelashes are used, which differ in length (from 4 to 21 mm), in thickness (from 0.07 to 0.3 mm) and bend (it has the letter markings).
Hypersensitive adhesive, colorless or black, is used to glued the eyelashes. The use of colorless glue allows you to get the most natural effect when you grow lashes, while black glue creates an additional cosmetic effect of the tinted eyelids.
Advantages and disadvantages of this method of eyelash extension:
- Duration of the resulting effect (artificial fibula firmly affixed to its own and actually lives a full cycle of own eyelashes, which lasts about 1 month);
- Natural effect;
- The loss of artificial eyelashes is not as noticeable as the loss of the beam (with the extension of the eyelashes).
- Duration of the procedure (eyelash extension takes 3-5 hours depending on the qualification of the wizard and the desired effect);
- The cost of the procedure;
- The need for regular correction to support the effect;
- Certain lifestyle restrictions (use of greasy creams, fatigue during lavage, touching eyelashes).
Technology of eyelash extensions
The technology of eyelash extensions involves gluing bundles consisting of several artificial eyelashes to their eyelashes. This way allows you to get the maximum amount of your own cilia series, which is its main advantage. The main disadvantage of the technique is the short-term outcome. Because of its severity, the bundles disappear, leaving empty spaces in the cilia that have a non-aesthetic appearance.
Currently, masters use artificial materials for eyelash extensions. Sable, mink, columns, silk - the names of artificial eyelashes, based on the effect that is achieved when they are used.
The use of natural materials for eyelash extensions is not practiced to avoid the development of conjunctivitis and allergic reactions.
Eyelash extension at home
Self-lifting of eyelashes at home - the procedure is dangerous to health. When raising eyelashes, the client must be in a horizontal position with closed eyes, which ensures a natural, relaxed position of the eyelids and its rest. Also, this condition protects the eyes from the ingestion of glue or cosmetic resins used to fix artificial lashes on the customer's own eyelashes.
Currently, some masters are doing eyelash extension services at home. However, it should be borne in mind that the procedure of eyelash extension is a laborious work that requires certain conditions that are often difficult to reproduce in a home environment. Inappropriate conditions can significantly affect the quality of the work of the wizard. However, eyelash extensions at home can be more comfortable for many women than lash extensions in the cabin.
Contraindications for eyelash extensions
Eyelash extension is positioned as a painless and harmless cosmetic procedure. Nevertheless, there are a number of contraindications for its conduct. So, the main contraindications for eyelash extensions are:
- Increased sensitivity of skin of eyelids;
- Chronic conjunctivitis;
- Excessive tear
Masters of eyelash extensions also do not recommend conducting procedure for owners: thin, weakened eyelashes, as the procedure only strengthens their condition; Bold eyelids, as the skin helps reduce the period of wearing artificial eyelashes.
Also, with special care should be taken to eyelash extensions for those who have poor eyesight, which requires correction. Glasses significantly limit the possible length of lashes, while lenses provide daily mechanical damage to artificial lashes.
Eyelash extensions: reviews, recommendations of the masters
Masters of eyelash extensions strongly recommend that you read reviews of both the actual build and the master who will perform the work. With eyelashes, reviews have an incredible meaning.
Reviews can not only determine the competence of the wizard, but also understand how this cosmetic procedure suits a woman.
Insufficient eyelash extensions, the reviews of which can be found on the Internet, is fraught with a feeling of heaviness and foreignness on the eyelids, the development of inflammation through the ingestion of surplus of fixative in the eye, the introduction of infection.
Eyelashes after enlargement. Ways of recovery
Eyelash extensions - a process that leads to mechanical damage to your own cilia line. The wrong size of artificial eyelashes leads to the fact that under their excessive weight their eyelashes break down. Adhesives and resins used to fix artificial eyelashes also adversely affect their own eyelashes. Eyelashes after enlargement require restoration.
Masters of eyelash extensions do not recommend walking with artificial eyelashes for more than 2 months. Permanent mechanical damage during correction and wearing of artificial eyelashes causes that your own eyelashes become overly weakened. Many reviews say that their eyelashes after enlargement lose shape and volume.
For the restoration of eyelashes after the build-up, you can use specialist equipment sold in pharmacies. They include a balanced set of vitamins and elements that contribute to the strengthening and growth of eyelashes.
Also, to restore the lash after the build up, you can use self-cooked vitamin mixtures. The best components for such a mixture will be castor oil, vitamin A, vitamin E, which can be purchased at the pharmacy. Before using the blend on the eyelashes, an allergic reaction test should be performed on a small area of the skin.
