Dr Oz: Dangerous Eyelash Extensions
Dr Oz’s investigative reporter Elisabeth Leamy went undercover to expose dangerous practices in beauty salons, such as Eyelash Extensions and the practice of Eyelash Tinting, which is illegal in New York and at least six other states.
However, Leamy and her undercover cameras found dozens of salons offering the service, claiming that it does not damage the lash. One woman said that it is completely safe, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had this to say:
“There are no color additives approved for tinting of eyelashes…. …To do so may cause blindness.”
