When it comes to eyelash extensions, the general rule of thumb is that you should get a refill appointment every two to three weeks. After one week, you may have lost 21 lashes, and after two weeks, you may have lost 42 lashes. After three weeks, you may have lost 63 lashes. Therefore, it is recommended to book an eyelash filler appointment two to three weeks after the initial appointment.
It is important to note that everyone is different and there is no exact time frame for when you should get a refill. However, it can be said that after four weeks your natural eyelashes will have fallen off and the extensions attached to them will have disappeared as well. Just like the hair on your head, eyelashes grow, shed, and grow back over time. Most eyelash extension technicians suggest getting a refill every two to three weeks.
Depending on the retention of the extensions and the skin care products you use, you may be able to wait up to four weeks between appointments. To help extend the time between refills, it is important to brush your eyelashes regularly and keep them clean in order to avoid infections. Additionally, you can use tweezers to hold the base of the natural eyelash and slide them along the stem of the lash in order to remove extensions without damaging or bending the natural lash. It is also important to note that if there is a buildup of product on your lashes, it can take up to half an hour for an eyelash artist to remove it during your appointment.
This can affect subsequent appointments since all of the lashes must be removed and cleaned before applying a full set or a refill. This will give your natural lashes time to grow back and provide stronger lashes for extensions. If you notice that in this particular cycle you have lost more lashes than usual, you can always call the salon and they may be able to move up your appointment. It is also important to remember that if you are looking for more volume or a different style, it is likely that you will lose your lashes sooner than expected due to the extra weight of the extensions.
Finally, when booking an appointment for a refill, make sure that there is no makeup residue in the eye and lash area as this can take up valuable time during your appointment.
