Please read the following information carefully regarding patch testing of our lash extensions.
*This is specifically about Lash Extension Patch Testing with our LashBase products*
For lifting & tinting a patch test is still required no later than 48 hours before your treatment
Here at The Lash Lounge safe and professional practice is of the most importance to us. This is one of our biggest changes in guidelines and something we have researched & considered in great depth.
Cyanoacrylate contained in lash adhesives is the most common reason for reaction to lash extensions. It is an irritant for your skin, eyes and respiratory functions. For this reason lash adhesive should not touch the skin. For many years we have followed the old-school method by patch testing. However this is not clear indication if a reaction will occur as during the treatment adhesive will never touch your skin.
If someone is allergic to Cyanoacrylate unfortunately you will not be able to have lash extensions applied.
A patch test does not give you full exposure in the same way a full set would.
Lash adhesive allergies are cumulative (meaning they build up over time).
It is unlikely that a client will already have an allergy to cyanoacrylate if they have not previously been exposed to this.
What about our insurance policy?
Well in short they advise we follow our manufactures or suppliers guidelines.
LashBase patch testing guidelines are as follows:
Upon booking your lash extension treatment here at The Lash Lounge, you will be given up to date information regarding lash adhesive and patch testing. Once you have been informed, it is your decision as to wether you would like to have a patch test before proceeding with your treatment.
If you would like to have a patch test before your treatment we advise this to be carried out around 48 hours before your treatment. If you do not wish to go ahead with a patch test you will be required to sign a form stating this. Please note no treatment will be carried out without you agreeing to all of our points relating to patch testing.
