At Cherry Lash, we’re proud to provide high-quality eyelash extensions and other eyelash products. Whether you’re going for a dramatic look, natural feel or any other style, our professionals are here to help with method that are both stylish and completely safe.

This last element – safety – is one we take very seriously. The minor risks associated with eyelash care may not seem like much of a concern, and they aren’t – so long as you’re working with reputable eyelash professionals who know the proper steps to take here. Let’s go over a few of the mistakes inexperienced lash pros might make, plus how we avoid them while providing you with lash extensions.

Irritation

When applied properly, lash extensions should allow natural lashes to grow in their normal way and without any pain. If improperly applied, however, they can stick together and cause a “pulling” feeling, either during blinking or constantly.

Generally, this comes down to how much lash glue was used by your eyelash artist. Too much glue will stick lashes together at the bases, which can break lashes and lead to long-term issues. Our artists will end every treatment by brushing your lashes to make sure they don’t snag or pull in any way, something you’ll be able to do yourself once you leave.

Allergies or Reactions

All lash artists need to be aware of possible human sensitivity to certain lash products. Some people are sensitive to certain fumes that are used in some lash adhesives, and others may have issues with the gel pad that’s used during lash treatments. Good lash artists are trained to place the gel pad properly to avoid vapors seeping through, which is the issue in most cases. We’ll also provide barrier creams and other basic preparation services for those with dry skin or other concerns.

And finally, we’ll always give you a patch test before any eyelash application to be sure you won’t have an allergic reaction to any of the products being used. There is no risk of allergic reaction whatsoever when you come to our experienced pros.

Infection

And finally, it’s of paramount importance that all lash artists work in clean, sanitary areas and with tools that match this cleanliness. There are a number of contagious eye-related conditions that may spread otherwise, including pink eye, blepharitis and others. These can take place due to basic unsanitary conditions, poor ventilation, or even stale adhesives being used.

At Cherry Lash, we use only the most detailed sanitation and safety methods to avoid these risks entirely. We are happy to show you how our tools are cleaned, the precautions taken by your artist, and our requirements for hand-washing and other sanitation measures.
