Women in interesting positions worry about how they look. Bearing a child is the most wonderful period for each of the fair sex, and at the same time very exciting, since various changes take place at this time, both in the body and in appearance. In an effort to look their best, many women think about eyelash lamination during pregnancy, but at the same time they are afraid that the procedure will harm the unborn baby.
Lamination of eyelashes: what is it for
Such a cosmetic procedure as eyelash lamination allows you to make them more fluffy, shiny and long. Beauticians claim that it also strengthens the structure and moisturizes the cilia, which become a real eye decoration, making themmore expressive.
Eyelash lamination compositions do not affect the skin around the eyes, so women are allowed to carry out the procedure in position. In addition to the cosmetic effect, lamination contributes to:
- restoring the eyelash structure;
- activate growth and strengthen eyelashes;
- additional nutrition that protects against hair loss.
During the procedure, a heated composition is applied to the cilia. The mixture is strengthened with keratin, then the eyelashes are coated with paint of the desired shade. The duration of the procedure is about 40 minutes.
It should be borne in mind that after the composition is washed off, the eyelashes will be stiff. After 2-3 hours, you can enjoy the desired effect.
Lamination of eyelashes during pregnancy takes place in several stages:
- cosmetics are removed so that the active substances can freely penetrate the hair structure;
- a special preparatory composition is applied, which smoothes and softens the skin;
- the protective form is selected to which the cilia are glued;
- fixing the protector on the upper eyelid, glue the eyelashes with natural glue, which can then be easily removed;
- Nourishing serum containing natural oils and vitamins, as well as a coloring pigment that gives the desired shade is applied to the eyelashes;
- eyelashes are covered with liquid keratin, which penetrates the hair structure and strengthens it from the inside (actually keratin createsthe effect of long and fluffy eyelashes);
- when the active ingredients dry, remove the protector and the remaining substance that covers the eyelashes.
Due to the procedure, dormant cells and bulbs are activated, resulting in accelerated growth of young eyelashes.
Is it possible to do eyelash lamination for pregnant women
Professional masters claim that lamination for expectant mothers is carried out exclusively with natural preparations, which contributes to the healing and restoration of eyelashes.
- keratin, which is a protein compound (this substance is present in the structure of hair, nails, eyelashes);

In addition to the main ones, the lamination product also includes additional components that strengthen and restore eyelashes.
Eyelash lamination compositions are applied only to natural cilia, without affecting the mucous membrane. At the same time, the woman has no pain sensations.
Lamination and first trimester
To avoid negative consequences and get the desired effect from eyelash lamination, the procedure time must be chosen correctly.

In this regard, it is advisable to abandon the procedure in the first trimester.
Reviews on eyelash lamination during pregnancy indicate that due to the changes taking place in a woman's body, the result can be completely unpredictable:
- the shape of the eyelashes can change unpredictably (they will be too curled or straight);

- Lamination effect may be completely absent.
Lamination in the second trimester
In the second trimester, there is still a risk of getting an unpredictable result from the procedure. Lamination of eyelashes, according to the masters, is better to be postponed to a safer time (third trimester). But the expectant mother for a month and a half may not worry about how beautiful her eyes look, especially since after the birth of the crumbs there will not be much time left to take care of herself.
Third trimester procedure
