Dr Oz: Low-Carb Lasagna with Zucchini Noodles
Eyelash extensions are the hottest beauty trend right now, but are they worth the health risks? Dr. Oz asked Elisabeth Leamy to conduct an undercover investigation into the safety of eyelash extensions, as well as eyelash tinting, and what she learned was alarming!
Dr Oz: Eyelash Extension Procedure Risks
The first thing that Elisabeth Leamy uncovered was the number of salons that offer eyelash tinting services when they are actually illegal in the state of New York. When it comes to eyelash extensions, Elisabeth learned that glue is used to apply synthetic lashes one by one with a large pair of tweezers, which can be risky due to the potential of glue getting into the eye. She says another problem is that the salon could accidentally get glue on your skin, which can lead to an allergic reaction, but the worst outcome could be when hair follicles become damaged and cause your eyelashes to never grow back.
Dr Oz: Is Eyelash Tinting Legal?
Dr. Erin Stair says that eyelash procedures can often lead to bacteria and infections, especially if your aesthetician does not properly clean their tools, but many women get addicted to the procedure because they like having fuller, sexier lashes. She adds, too, that it is like playing Russian Roulette because eventually something bad will happen, so she does not believe it is worth the risk.
Dr. Stair explains women need to be aware that the FDA has not approved any product for the use of eyelash tinting or coloring, which means you are taking a lot of risks because salons are going out on a legal limb and putting your health, and even your eyesight, at risk. Would you really want to risk blindness just to color your eyelashes? Just like with extensions, Dr. Stair does not believe it is worth the risk and neither does Dr. Oz.
Dr Oz: Eyelash Extension Safety Guidelines
Dr. Oz realizes you are not going to stop getting eyelash extensions, so he asked Elisabeth Leamy to share a few safety guidelines to follow.
- Take out contacts beforehand.
- Avoid during allergy season.
- Ask for glue ingredients.
