How do you get rid of a stye with eyelash extensions?

In some cases, you may need treatment with antibiotics to help it go away. We recommend postponing any refill of eyelash extensions until the stye has disappeared and, for greater safety, the ideal is to have a period of 72 hours completely free of swelling and irritation before using it again. Eyelash extensions can cause cross-contamination and the formation of sties. That's why it's crucial to never do eyelash extensions to a customer with a stye.

You don't want to transfer the eye infection to another customer. Instead of a cloth, you can also use a hot tea bag: black tea has antibacterial properties, so it's the best. Clogged follicles could 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, eyelid swelling, and pus secretion.

Wearing the same makeup for long periods of time allows bacteria to reproduce. False eyelash extensions create an unhygienic environment, since we don't clean our eyes as regularly while trying to preserve our eyelash extensions. And while it's not common, sometimes an eyelash extension is embedded in the transparent membrane that covers the eyeball. Listed below are the most common types of eyelash extension infections you may see and their symptoms.

This means that dirt or bacteria that are trapped in eyelash extensions may not be removed as they normally would, allowing them easy access to the eye. Not only are eyelash extensions likely to protect your eyes worse, but they can also cause other problems. 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. 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 curl accordingly.

Since eyelashes keep dust and dirt out of the eyes, it's reasonable to assume that the longer eyelash length of extensions would be even better at keeping debris away.
