  • Aiding a cleaner treatment procedure

The importance of effective lighting is crucial for up close treatments such as lashes when isolating and applying lash extensions or planing with a blade when dermaplaning, it prevents eye strain and you get better visual clarity.

Using a lamp with daylight lighting is recommended, in particular GLAMCOR lights as these are perfect for not heating products because they do not produce to much heat, which is important with products like the lash glue when it could affect the curing process.

It is also recommended that your lash studio lighting is with daylight bulbs too, as working in a darker room with just a small glamcor lamp can cause bad eye strain.
