Before and after eyelash extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions infills?

Hi my Name is Amy and I own a successful Sydney Eyelash Extensions Studio.

Eyelashes is just like the hair on your head, it grows and then falls out.

Your first appointment sees us apply Lash extensions to all your suitable lashes. After 2 – 3 weeks, the set will have halved.

Eyelash extensions fall out in 2 different ways

  1. With the natural lash or
  2. The bond will weaken & the extensions will fall off the natural lash.

Infills are done at the 2 to 4 week mark depending on the set. 

Just like when starting a new set, the eyelash extension process starts with a double cleanse, apply your gel eye pad and then begin removal of outgrown lash extensions.

To remove the outgrown lash extensions, we peel away the extension and discard it.
Then we re-apply lash extensions to the eyelashes that do not currently have extensions on, therefore making them full again. 

We remove extensions that have grown out by 2-3mm or more because;

  • The growth of the natural lash effectively makes the extension appear longer.
  • These can have an undesired effect to the end result of your perfect lash line.
  • The lashes will continue to grow in the weeks between your appointment and the strength of the natural lash holding up an extension has passed its centre of gravity 

If extensions are left on for too long & are grown out cause their own unique problems like drooping of the extensions and even twisting so the extension can end up sitting sideways.

This happens because the hair is holding up the extensions, not the skin. Once the hair has grown out and the extension is too far from the lash line, it will need to be removed and replaced with a new extension.
