A popular beauty eyelash extension procedure can be dangerous to health, according to Elizabeth Hawkes, a physician at Cadogan Clinic, a British ophthalmic clinic, The Sun reported.
According to the doctor, an increasing number of eye infections associated with the use of so-called false eyelashes.
“With the rise of eyelash treatments also comes an increase in emergency eyelid problems and serious infections," she said.
