Lash Techs: How to Avoid Red Eye and Irritation for Clients

As a lash tech, one of the most common issues that clients face after getting eyelash extensions is redness and irritation in the eyes. This can be a frustrating experience for both the client and the lash tech. However, there are some steps you can take to avoid red-eye and irritation for your clients.

  1. Properly prepare the client

  2. Use high-quality products

  3. Choose the right lash extension length and thickness

  4. Properly isolate the natural lashes

  5. Use proper application techniques

  6. Educate your clients on aftercare

  7. Follow up with your clients


Avoid red eye

Properly prepare the client

Before starting the lash application, it’s important to properly prepare the client for the procedure. This includes having them remove all makeup and ensuring that their eyes are free of any debris. You should also have the client sign a consent form to acknowledge that they understand the risks and potential side effects of the procedure.


Use high-quality products

One of the main reasons clients experience redness and irritation after getting eyelash extensions is due to low-quality products. As a lash tech, it’s important to invest in high-quality products that are safe and gentle on the eyes. This includes using a high-quality adhesive, lash extensions, and other products.


Choose the right lash extension length and thickness

Choosing the right lash extension length and thickness is crucial in avoiding redness and irritation for your clients. If you choose extensions that are too long or thick, they can weigh down the natural lashes and cause discomfort. This can also lead to irritation and redness. It’s important to consider the client’s natural lash length and thickness when choosing the appropriate extensions.


Properly isolate the natural lashes

Properly isolating the natural lashes is another important step in avoiding redness and irritation. If the extensions are not properly isolated, they can stick to neighboring lashes and cause discomfort. This can also lead to redness and irritation. It’s important to take your time and ensure that each natural lash is properly isolated before applying the extension.


Use proper application techniques

Using proper application techniques is crucial in avoiding redness and irritation for your clients. This includes using the right amount of adhesive, properly placing the extensions, and using the right tools. If the adhesive is not applied properly, it can cause discomfort and redness. It’s important to use the right amount of adhesive and to properly place each extension to avoid any discomfort.


Educate your clients on aftercare

Proper aftercare is crucial in avoiding redness and irritation for your clients. As a lash tech, it’s important to educate your clients on proper aftercare techniques. This includes avoiding getting the lashes wet for the first 24 hours, avoiding oil-based products, and gently cleaning the lashes with a lash cleanser. It’s also important to advise clients to avoid rubbing their eyes or pulling on the lashes.


Follow up with your clients

Following up with your clients is another important step in avoiding redness and irritation. After the procedure, it’s important to check in with your client to ensure that they are not experiencing any discomfort or redness. If they are experiencing any issues, it’s important to address them immediately to prevent further complications.
