It occurred to me that after having this blog up and running for so long and being in the industry since 2011 – I have never answered the question ‘are eyelash extensions safe?’ In such a black and white way before.
The simple answer is yes.
Eyelash extensions are extremely safe and if you continue reading – I’ve broken it all down for you to make it really simple!
Here’s a breakdown of how and why it’s safe to have lash extensions applied. Remember to always research before you go anywhere – I’ve written articles about how to find a great lash salon in the past.
- When applied correctly, the glue never touches the skin or eye
- There’s no needles, ink or anything scary that’s involved
- Most of our clients fall asleep – it’s a relaxing experience (if you go to the right place of course!)
- Eyelash extensions fall out with your natural lash so they don’t cause any damage to the health of your natural eyelashes
- Only a very, very small percentage of women have an allergic reaction (this is biological and not something we can predict or prevent)
- If an allergic reaction does occur, the treatment is simple and easy. Usually, a doctor will say to take antihistamines for a few days until the swelling goes down

What are the most dangerous parts about having eyelash extensions applied?
Nothing really, it’s a safe and simple way of achieving long, beautiful lashes. The only danger is going to someone who is learning or still practising. It requires a lot of skill to become a master eyelash technician and at The Lash Spa, we only work with skilled technicians.
