At Winks Eyelash Boutique, our 15-year journey has been adorned with the trust our clients place in us for their beauty needs. While eyelash extensions are a pathway to confidence for many, awareness about potential immediate and delayed allergic reactions is crucial for a safe, beautiful outcome.
IMMEDIATE ALLERGIES: CYANOACRYLATE AND CARBON BLACK
Immediate allergic reactions are often linked to two common ingredients in eyelash adhesives: cyanoacrylate and Carbon Black. Cyanoacrylate is an efficient bonding agent, but for some, it’s an allergen that can cause redness, itching, and swelling. Similarly, Carbon Black provides the deep pigment in many lash adhesives, which can also be an irritant. At Winks, we’ve observed that switching to clear, pigment-free adhesives often resolves these issues, indicating a reaction to Carbon Black.
DELAYED ONSET ALLERGIES: A GROWING CONCERN
What’s more perplexing is the occurrence of delayed onset allergies, where symptoms develop long after the initial exposure. As detailed by Penn Medicine, adult-onset allergies can appear unexpectedly, particularly in individuals with a history of atopic diseases. Furthermore, a QualityHealth report emphasizes that delayed allergic reactions can be serious, unfolding hours after exposure to an allergen.
BEST PRACTICES FOR ALLERGY MANAGEMENT
Our boutique’s response to these allergenic challenges includes detailed client consultations, thorough patch testing, and providing alternative adhesives. We stay informed about the latest medical findings to ensure we’re prepared for both immediate and delayed allergic reactions, safeguarding our clients’ health.
