1. There are so many eyepatches in your collection, I don’t know which ones to choose?
Each type of eyepatch is slightly different - they differ in shape, thickness and ingredients. Thanks to a wide range of eyepatches you can choose the ones that work best for you and are the most comfortable for your clients! We always recommend having at least two different types of eyepatches to choose from during the appointment. Shop the whole collection here.
2. My client is allergic to the eyepatches, what can I do?
If your client has developed an allergic reaction to the eyepatches, remember to refer them to their GP or pharmacy immediately for advice. For the next appointment, we would recommend trying a different type of eyepatch from the range, as your client could be allergic to just one ingredient that was present in the previous eyepatches. Alternatively, you can simply use surgical tape, however keep in mind that this is not as comfortable for a client as eyepatches are.
3. Is it necessary to use eyepatches, can I just use tape?
Eyepatches are designed to separate bottom lashes from top during eyelash extension treatment. Due to the material they have been created from, they are very soft and comfortable to use compared to surgical tape. Additionally, eyepatches contain many good ingredients like Vitamin C, Aloe Vera, botanical extracts and more, which take care of the skin during the treatment. Your client is not only leaving your salon with beautiful lashes but also with well moisturised and nourished skin.
4. The eyepatches are too big and don’t fit for my clients, I don’t know what to do?
Thanks to the wide range of eyepatches at London Lash, you can choose a different size of eyepatch to fit your needs! The smallest and thinnest eyepatches are Maximum Comfort Extra Thin eyepatches. Alternatively, you can try Teflon eyepatches, which are also smaller in shape.
5. The eyepatches don’t stick properly and are constantly popping up in the inner corners.
First thing to check is your client’s skin under the eyes. If the skin has any makeup there, or is very oily the eyepatches may not be sticking properly. Use Protein Remover Pads to clean the eye area prior to the treatment - both eyelid and the skin underneath the eye. If you still experience the same problem, choose eyepatches with slightly stickier bottom layer, for example Teflon or Satin eyepatches. Thanks to the specially formulated gel, they stick very well to the skin and do not move throughout the treatment. Alternatively, you can use a small piece of surgical tape on top of the eyepatch, to secure those very tricky corners.
6. I’ve noticed that sometimes the eyepatches are lifting up, especially on clients with a deep set of eyes or prominent cheekbones. What am I doing wrong?
You are doing nothing wrong, and sometimes this can happen - especially if you are using larger eyepatches. Simply take scissors and make 3 small cuts at the bottom of the eyepatches to make them more flexible. Watch the video how to do it:
