Q: What types of eye pads?
A: Eye pads for lash extensions can be made of different materials, including hydrogel, highly active eye pads, and silicone. Reusable eyepads are the most economical type of pad, and can be applied up to 100 times without problems. Japanese breathable tapes are a popular option for lash stylists, and are suitable for use as an eye patch on their own.
Q: How do I apply eye pads?
A: To apply the eye pad, ask the patient to close both eyes. Position the eye pad diagonally over the closed lids of the affected eye and tape firmly, but gently, to the forehead and temple. Make sure the lower lashes are completely isolated from the upper lashes.
Q: What type of eye pad is best for small and deep-set eyes?
A: Perfect for small eyes and deep-set eyes is the tiny eye pad. It should not be used for very coarse lashes, as the bottom lashes can push the pad up. This type of eye pad is almost gel-free.
