Chemical burns from eyelash extensions can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
1. Improper application: If the eyelash extensions are not applied correctly, the adhesive used to attach them can come into contact with the eye, causing a chemical burn.
2. Low-quality or expired products: Using low-quality or expired eyelash extension products, including adhesives, can increase the risk of a chemical burn.
3. Allergic reactions: Some people may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in the eyelash extension adhesive, which can cause a chemical burn.
4. Inadequate ventilation: Poor ventilation in the area where eyelash extensions are applied can increase the concentration of chemicals in the air, increasing the risk of chemical burns.
5. Contact with other chemicals: Contact with other chemicals, such as hair dye or cleaning products, can also cause a chemical burn in the eye.
6. Inexperienced or untrained technicians: Technicians who are inexperienced or untrained in applying eyelash extensions may not take the necessary precautions to prevent chemical burns.
It’s important to choose a reputable and experienced technician and to ensure that all products used during the application process are of high quality and not expired. If you experience any discomfort or pain during or after the application of eyelash extensions, seek medical attention immediately.
