As long as you follow the time guidelines between a full set and a restock appointment, your eyelashes should have a density of between 70 and 100% or more compared to a full set after this appointment. For best results, we recommend that refills be applied within three weeks of using the original full set. Has the eyelash technician explained the growth cycle of your eyelashes to you? Everyone loses 2 to 5 natural eyelashes every day. That's why you have to fill them up so they stay full.
When an eyelash extension falls out, a single natural eyelash should be placed. This is totally normal and will happen almost every day. The eyelash has a fairly rapid growth cycle, which ranges from around 90 days, depending on the age and health of the eyelashes. Most eyelash extension technicians recommend that you refill your eyelashes every 2-3 weeks.
Sometimes, you can wait longer, even up to 4 weeks, depending on the retention, maintenance of eyelash extensions and the skin care products you use (more info below). The best time to refill eyelash extensions is around two to three weeks after the first eyelash application. The optimal time depends on the growth of your own eyelashes. As I mentioned earlier, your individual eyelash growth cycle will largely decide how much time you have before you need to refill your lashes.
However, on average, eyelash fillers will last two to three weeks. However, there are also other determining factors. You can make extensions last longer by refilling your eyelashes after 2 to 3 weeks, combing them with a sponge and using the right products around your eyes. An eyelash filler treatment involves applying new, individual eyelash extensions to new lashes in areas where some consequences have occurred, resulting in occasional shortages.
After all, during this procedure, only the scattered areas of the eyelashes are filled, unlike when you started only with your natural eyelashes. If you have several lashes fall out in the first 3 days after filling, you should fix it with your eyelash technician, as there is likely a problem with the adhesive or with the way they are applied. Telogen eyelashes are the lashes that you'll see come off in the sink when you wash or brush them. Some eyelash artists don't like to use an eyelash extension remover for partial removal, as it can take longer than with tweezers.
That's why it's so important to take good care of your eyelashes during the process if you want long-lasting eyelash extensions. Most eyelash technicians require that you have at least 40% of extensions left over for eyelash filler; otherwise, it will be considered a complete set. Eyelash extensions are designed to last the entire natural eyelash cycle, that is, the time it takes for eyelashes to grow and fall out. Not only are they experts in eyelashes in general, but after your initial eyelash extension appointment, they are also likely to know your specific lashes very well.
Early adolescence, natural eyelashes (those that are usually less than 3 mm or 0.1 inches long) grow much faster than lashes in the last stage of the growth cycle. For volume extensions, use wide foot tweezers such as the RV-1 and press the attached part of the eyelash extension. Basically, eyelash fillers are what you get when your eyelash extensions start to lose a bit of their fullness and shine. However, some eyelash artists find it easier to remove all the remaining eyelashes and start a new series at the cost of filling them in.
Using tweezers to remove eyelash extensions is generally not recommended, as it can be too strong and can cause natural eyelashes to curl or damage. .
