Eyelash extension patch test. What is it?

Hi ladies, Hope you all had wonderful spring so far. I have recently been questioned about patch test many times so I want to explain you what exactly patch test is? Or is it necessary for you?.

An eyelash extension patch test is a 15 minutes appointment when a lash tech apply few extensions (maximum 10 each eye) to testify whether a client have allergy to any product using in an eyelash extension appointment such as under eye patch, tape, lash cleanser and more importantly lash adhesive. 

Allergic reaction to the lash adhesive is the worst one. The symptoms appear within 24-48 hour. The reaction starts with redness, itchiness, puffiness and get worse over a short period of time. Client should visit a lash professional for an urgent lash removal appointment to avoid any consequences.

Allergy to the under eye patch and tape is a minor irritation and always go away within few hours. If your client report a red line on her lower eye lid, this is coming from the under eye gel patch. I recommend to stop using the under eye patch on her for a while and protect the under eye skin with vaseline until the sensitivity is gone.

Haniye Artistry’s lash techs are skilled enough to give you the best lash experience ever.  If you have had allergic reaction before or you are concerned to have it, I highly recommend to get a patch test beforehand. 

Remember! In some rare cases there is no reaction to the small amount of glue but there is to the full amount. Please release your lash tech free of any responsibility as this is a body reaction not a mistake.
