Nano Mister: The Science Behind Nano Misting

Why does customer experience random burning sensations after her lash extensions? The answer to this question has to do with the drying process of the adhesive, and using a nano mister can mitigate the burning sensation.

Cyanoacrylate, the active ingredient in the adhesive, must polymerize for the adhesive to "dry". Water is necessary for this process to occur. Water with cyanoacrylate makes polymers or chains of cyanoacrylate. The water triggers this reaction and the "drying" process takes place. However, instead of drying, it is actually a solidification process (going from the liquid glue to the solid glue).

Since water is found in the air (humidity) cyanoacrylate will eventually polymerize over time; this is why cyanoacrylate is kept in an airtight bottle. After lashes have been placed, many times the middle layers of the adhesive have not been exposed to any water, so the adhesive never fully dries or very slowly dries over an extended period of time. This slow drying process can cause irritation and a burning sensation as the inner layers of the adhesive dry. This is especially common when your lashes are exposed to water or shortly thereafter.

Handy nano mister was designed to speed up the process of drying and let the adhesive dry more effectively. It is a miracle worker! The nano mister sprays very fine mist water to help this reaction happen evenly throughout the lashes. It helps dry each individual layer faster and completely as you put on the lashes, so we recommend that you use the nano mister on your clients throughout the lash application process. This helps eliminate any burning sensation and a lot of irritation that may take place during the appointment or afterward.
