Eyelash Perm Treatments Are Popular But May Cause Injuries

An eyelash perm (or permanent curl) is a popular beauty treatment for those seeking to enlarge the appearance of their eyes, giving them a more open and attentive look. The procedure involves the use of a perm solution and a perming rod to comb and curl the eyelashes, achieving a permed effect which can last for up to 3 months. There are however a number of safety concerns related to eyelash perming, and it is essential that would-be clients carefully choose a beauty salon with the experience and skill to carry out the treatment safely.

Chemicals In Perm Solutions Can Damage The Eyes & Skin

Though eyelash perming is a generally harmless procedure when carried out by properly trained and experienced beauty therapists, there will always be concerns when potentially hazardous chemicals are being applied to sensitive areas around the eyes. While some salons use perming solutions containing only natural ingredients, others use toxic chemical solutions, with the potential to cause burns and adverse reactions in a minority of people. For this reason, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve any products for use in eyelash perming treatments at US beauty salons.

Eyelash Perming Treatments Are Unsuitable For Some People

The symptoms of an adverse reaction to chemicals contained is eyelash perming products can vary in severity, from temporary mild eye irritation, to a full-blown allergic reaction, causing hair loss, skin damage and possible blindness. A skin patch test should always be carried out to check for pre-existing allergies, as well as any other skin sensitivity factors, which will make an eyelash perming treatment inadvisable. Another common mistake that beauty therapists make is leaving perming products on the eyelashes for too long, causing over-processing, breakage and hair loss.
