When you first get eyelash extensions, your stylist will inform you that you need to come back periodically to have your eyelashes filled. At first, this may be a little confusing. You may wonder what, exactly, needs to get filled and what this whole process will really involve. As it turns out, eyelash fills are simpler than they might seem. Check out the following FAQs (and answers) to get a better idea of what to expect.
What is a lash fill?
A lash fill is really no different from the process of having eyelash extensions put on in the first place. The stylist will simply be adding more false lashes where any of your previous extensions have fallen off. They'll dip the ends of the individual lashes into glue and then set the glue ends of the lashes along your natural lash line. If you've lost a lot of lash extensions since your last appointment, your stylist will apply a lot of new lashes during this appointment. If you've only lost a few lashes, they will only apply a few extensions.
How often do you need a lash fill?
Most people need to get their lashes filled every 4 to 6 weeks. After your first fill appointment, your stylist will evaluate your wait time and let you know if you can get away with going a bit longer between appointments next time or if you need to come in a little sooner.
How can you extend the time between fill appointments?
If you're trying to keep the cost of eyelash extensions down, extending the time between lash fills is one way to do it. Here are some ways to help your lashes last longer so you don't need a fill as soon:
Once you have your first fill appointment, you will realize it is not that difficult or strange to endure. Regular fill appointments are the key to keeping your eyelash extensions looking full and lush. Talk to your stylist if you have any lingering concerns before your fill session.
