Well, in short, you are. Eyelash extensions are bonded to the natural lash, rather than the eyelid, hence, contact with any part of the eye or skin is at the bare minimum. Though some adhesive might get on the skin at times, it is unlikely to be a significant amount. If you are unsure, do ask our LashCraft Stylists to perform a test on a small part of your skin, this will give an adequate indication if you may have any adverse reaction to the adhesive used.
Nonetheless, there are times that your carelessness may have a part to play for any adverse reactions. For instance, frequent rubbing, and tugging on your eyelashes can not only rip off your lashes, but also transfer glue and other nasty stuff like dirt into your eyeballs, which can cause irritation in people who don’t even have sensitive eyes to begin with.
Hence, with the care and skills provided by our therapists, combined with proper hygiene and care, eyelash extensions will be safe for you. Should you be notoriously sensitive and want to take extra precaution, do get some advice from your ophthalmologist first!
This is often a very commonly asked question amongst 2 groups of people. The first group are ladies who have never done eyelash extensions before, and is always afraid to try. The second group are ladies who have done it before, but had a not-so-great experience.
If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and will not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will naturally fall out with your natural growth cycle of your lashes.

Many don’t realize that applying eyelash extensions is a form of art by itself. There’s never a one-size-fits-all type of eyelash extension, and in fact it should be catered to the individual based on numerous factors, which is why we call our eyelash extension services LashCraft. Some of these factors include the weight, length and curl of the eyelash used. Lashes that are too heavy, or clusters (pre-made fan) tends to have a larger amount of adhesive used, which may cause your natural lashes to break.
But of course, YOU will also have a part to play in the health of your lashes. Here at DR. LASH, we provide after-care kits and simple guidelines to teach you how to prevent premature lash loss and even damage to your eyelashes. Some of these simple guidelines involve not rubbing, tugging or pulling on your extensions.
