What do you do for a stye with eyelash extensions?

In some cases, you may need treatment with antibiotics to help it go away. We recommend postponing any refilling of eyelash extensions until the stye has disappeared and, to be safe, the ideal is to have a 72-hour period completely free of swelling and irritation before returning to us. A stye is a bacterial infection of the sebaceous glands that causes a red, painful bump or an inflamed area of the eye. Sties can occur when the hair follicle is clogged and irritated.

Although they're not contagious, styes require warm compresses to go away. We recommend that you do not continue with the service until the stye has disappeared. You'll know that it's gone when the lump goes away and your eye is no longer red or inflamed. Blocked follicles can also form a stye, which can develop into a bacterial infection, Yu says.

If your eye is infected, you may experience symptoms similar to those of dry eye, in addition to photosensitivity, swelling of the eyelids, and pus discharge. If you have “conjunctivitis,” a corneal abrasion, blepharitis, stye, or eye mites, you are currently NOT a candidate for eyelash extensions. When the infection is gone, you can talk about expanding them at that point. The solvents used to remove glue from eyelashes can also cause allergic reactions and are not regulated by the U.

We recommend that you use a safe mascara for eyelash extensions and avoid a mascara that is water resistant. But if you opt for the advanced eyelash technique known as “Russian volume”, your technician will apply a range of eyelash extensions to each eyelash. This eyelash extension infection is not related to eyelash extension, but eyelash professionals should still know this. Eyelash technicians, who require a license, recommend which extension will work best for you, balancing the desired look with the capacity of your natural lashes and choosing the length, width and degree of curvature accordingly.

When you put on eyelash extensions, they tell you to treat them with care, following instructions to avoid getting them wet with water, cleansers, creams or any other product for the first 24 hours. If you plan to dye your lashes, wait 48 hours between dyeing any complete set or filling service. If your lashes aren't suitable for the curl you want, you can use a HEATED eyelash curler to curl them. Not only are eyelash extensions likely to protect your eyes worse, they can also cause other problems.

The following are the most common types of eyelash extension infections you may notice and their symptoms. If you decide to go for eyelash extensions, Yu recommends that you choose eyelashes that aren't too long or heavy. And while it's not common, sometimes an eyelash extension gets embedded in the clear membrane that covers the eyeball.
