When it comes to eyelash extensions, it's generally recommended to get a refill every two to three weeks. Everyone's eyelashes and goals are different, so it's important to have a strong and open dialogue with your technician. Most technicians suggest refilling your lashes every two to three weeks, although you may be able to wait up to four weeks depending on the retention, maintenance of the extensions, and the skin care products you use. To keep your lashes looking their best, it's recommended to get a fill every three weeks on average.
Some people have faster or slower growth cycles, and there are several factors that can cause extensions to come off prematurely. Ideally, you should come in for a refill every two to four weeks, but longer wait times may mean longer treatment time as more lashes will need to be filled. The best time to refill eyelash extensions is around two to three weeks after they were first applied. The optimal time depends on the growth of your own eyelashes.
You can make the extensions last longer if you fill them after two or three weeks, comb them with a spool, and use the right products around the eyes. Since extensions are only applied to certain areas and not along the entire lash line, it's not as long a process as a full set of extensions. Sometimes, problems with the original extensions can be fixed during an eyelash fill. It's necessary to fill the lashes because over time, the extensions will fall out with the growth cycle of natural lashes.
A good eyelash filler can breathe new life into a set of worn out extensions and keep your lashes looking fabulous. For volume extensions, use wide tweezers such as RV-1 and press on the attached part of the eyelash extension. It's important to take good care of your lashes during the process if you want long-lasting extensions. Be sure to brush your lashes regularly and clean them, to avoid infections and extend the time between two eyelash filler appointments.
Using tweezers to remove eyelash extensions is generally not recommended, as they can be too strong and cause natural eyelashes to curl or damage. Always apply an eyelash base that has been formulated for extensions (your natural lashes won't need it). Most technicians require that you have at least 40% of extensions left in order for them to fill your lashes; otherwise, it will be considered a complete set.
