Using Extensions to Add Volume to your Lashes

By Dean

Use of eyelash extensions is a popular trend. Over the years, many different types of techniques and extension materials have been used to add volume or length to natural eyelashes.

If you have always desired thick eyelashes, you may have considered using several options now available to achieve the same. Use of false eyelashes is one. Mascara can also add length and volume to your lashes. But one technique that can work wonders to make your eyes pop is the use of lash extensions. Volume lash extensions are natural or synthetic fibers, which are glued in multiple numbers to your natural eyelashes.

Volume Lash Extension – the Application

Volume lash extension is the technique of gluing two or more lashes to each natural lash. The technique involves creating tiny ‘fan-like’ lash extensions to add volume to your natural lashes.

Each artificial lash can be of 0.5 mm to 0.7 mm in thickness. Depending on individual requirements, two or more lashes are added to create a neat group. The exact number of lashes in a group will depend on your requirement for volume. The thinness of each lash extension makes it possible to group them together in multiples.

In another technique called classic extension, the fibers are quite thick in comparison to volume extensions. Due to their thickness (that can range from 1 mm to 1.5 mm), it isn’t possible to use them in multiples on a single lash.

Are Volume Lash Extensions Safe?

Volume lash extension is a safe cosmetic procedure when done by a qualified technician. Adding lash extensions to your natural lashes with the help of glue requires skills. The glue itself needs to be safe to be used on eyes. Some people are allergic to chemicals used in the adhesive. The allergic reaction can irritate the eye and also cause infections.

If you are keen on getting volume lash extensions, always work with a skilled and licensed technician who works in a reputed salon or spa. A technician or esthetician who is not properly trained may also break your natural lashes while trying to attach the extensions to them.

Some safety tips –

•  Check the certification and license of the technician before scheduling a session with one. Ensure that the salon or the beauty clinic for lash extensions is always clean. Your technician must adhere to all cleaning and safety procedures required for volume lash extensions.

•  Consult with an ophthalmologist to know if you could be allergic to the glue used for lash extensions. If you experience any discomfort or pain after using lash extensions, see your eye doctor immediately.

•  Follow care procedures as outlined by your lash technician. Do not attempt to remove the extensions by yourself.

Any kind of lash extension is a safe procedure when handled well. Before a session, make sure to convey your expectations from the procedure to your technician.
