Why do my eyelash extensions hurt?

Eyelash extensions can be a great way to enhance the beauty of your eyes and create a more dramatic look. However, sometimes eyelash extensions can cause discomfort and even pain.

In this blog, we'll explore some of the reasons why your eyelash extensions might be hurting and what you can do to alleviate the discomfort.

Reasons Why Eyelash Extensions Can Hurt

  1. Poorly Applied Extensions

One of the most common reasons why eyelash extensions can hurt is that they are poorly applied. If the extensions are placed too close to the lash line or are too heavy, they can cause discomfort and even pain.

  1. Allergic Reaction

Some people may be allergic to the adhesive used to apply eyelash extensions. This can cause redness, swelling, and even pain around the eye area.

  1. Infection

If the area around the eye or lash line is not kept clean, it can become infected. This can cause pain, redness, and swelling.

  1. Incorrect Removal

Removing eyelash extensions incorrectly can also cause discomfort and pain. If the extensions are pulled off too aggressively or without the proper technique, it can damage the natural lashes and cause pain.

What Can You Do to Alleviate the Discomfort?

  1. Remove the Extensions

If your eyelash extensions are causing significant pain or discomfort, it may be best to have them removed. This will give your eyes a chance to rest and heal.

  1. Apply a Warm Compress

If your eyelash extensions are causing discomfort or pain due to an infection or irritation, applying a warm compress can help to soothe the area and reduce inflammation.

  1. Use Over-the-Counter Pain Medication

If the discomfort is mild, over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help to alleviate the pain.

  1. Consult with Your Lash Technician

If you're experiencing discomfort with your eyelash extensions, it's important to consult with your lash technician. They may be able to adjust the extensions or provide additional care instructions to alleviate the discomfort.

In conclusion, there are several reasons why eyelash extensions can cause discomfort or pain. If you're experiencing significant discomfort, it's best to have the extensions removed and consult with your lash technician to determine the cause of the discomfort. With proper care and maintenance, eyelash extensions can be a safe and beautiful way to enhance your natural lashes.
