Alopecia (eyelash loss) after eyelash extensions

Usually, the cause of excessive eyelash loss is congenital or acquired diseases of the endocrine system. But it is also possible to damage the bulb of eyelashes with the mistakes made by the masters during extension, with endless correction without complete removal of artificial materials.

The set of adhesive components depends on the rate of their polymerization. Beginning craftsmen prefer to work with a low adhesive hardening rate. It is also shown for rooms with high humidity.

Artificial eyelash extension process

Allergy sufferers and clients with high eye sensitivity are advised to use an adhesive with a reduced percentage of cyanoacrylic acid in the composition. But the organic substance formaldehyde, which can be recognized by a sharp, toxic, unpleasant odor, is best excluded from use altogether.
