Which lash remover should one choose: a query about removing eyelashes?
A remover is a specialized product, meticulously developed to delicately remove eyelash extensions. It comprises gentle solvents that effectively dissolve the adhesive, allowing for the easy removal of the artificial lashes without causing any harm to the natural lashes or the client's eyes. These professional removers are exceptionally safe, hypoallergenic, and do not lead to dry lashes or skin irritations.
It is crucial to discourage clients from attempting to remove eyelash extensions on their own, for doing so can cause severe damage to the natural lashes and the ocular mucosa. The recovery of damaged lashes can take up to 6 months. Client-initiated interventions can, among other complications, result in eye inflammations. Home remedies such as oils can clog pores and lead to styes. Therefore, it is essential to have the lashes professionally removed using a remover.
There are three types of removers: creamy, liquid, and gel-like. Each type possesses its unique application properties, advantages, disadvantages, and exposure time. It is advisable to use the same brand of eyelash adhesive as the remover to achieve optimal efficiency with minimal exposure time.
The Cream Remover is the most popular choice among eyelash stylists. It is economical, safe, and easy to use. The Cream Remover is suitable for removing any type of eyelash extension. However, it is not suitable for spot removal of individual lashes (e.g. during refills) as it cannot be dosed precisely.
Thanks to its consistency, it prevents running and minimizes the risk of getting into the eyes. Its exposure time is usually 3 minutes (for 1:1) up to a maximum of 10 minutes (for Mega Volume). For example, a 1:1 - 2D removal takes a total of 8 minutes with us.
The Gel Remover is suitable both for local application (for selective removal of individual eyelashes/fans) and for the complete removal of eyelash extensions. It is thinner than the Cream Remover and dissolves all types of eyelash glue, but can become more liquid and run off the skin warmth during the exposure time. However, the risk of spreading to the mucous membrane of the eyes is minimal.
Its exposure time is also 3-10 minutes.
The liquid remover, also known as debonder, has a maximum concentration of active components that effectively dissolve the adhesive. It is ideal for selectively removing individual lashes or fans. The exposure time is only 1 minute.
However, it is important to note that the liquid remover is not recommended for the complete removal of eyelash extensions as it can injure the mucous membrane and cause discomfort. Instead, it is good for cleaning e.g. glue residue from tweezers.
Using a professional eyelash remover is the best choice to safely and gently remove eyelash extensions without affecting your natural lashes.
