A question that many people have is if eyelash extensions are permanent, and the answer is not exactly straightforward.
Eyelash extensions are considered to be semi-permanent and last up to 6 weeks before needing to be fully replaced. This will depend on a variety of factors including the type of adhesive used by the eyelash artist and how well they are applied to your natural eyelashes.
In general, however, they should last at least 3 weeks before needing to book a refill appointment.
There is a procedure for eyelash transplant surgery, but it is much less popular. It is a very invasive procedure that is done by a doctor or surgeon. Never consider going to an eyelash artist for this procedure.
So if you’re looking for long-term semi permanent lash enhancement, then eyelash extensions may be right for you! Let’s find out why eyelash extensions are not permanant;
What exactly are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent enhancements that add length and fullness to your natural lashes. Unlike strip lashes or other temporary options, lash extensions are individually applied to each of your own lashes.
We use a professional cyanoacrylate adhesive to apply fibers to each one of your natural eyelashes for a customized look that can last for 2-3 weeks before needing a refill.
There are many different types of lash extensions available, made from materials like mink, silk, or synthetic fibers. The extensions can be applied in a variety of styles, from natural and understated to ultra-glamorous.
Why are eyelash extensions semi permanent?
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent because they last as long as the natural growth cycle of your natural eyelashes. Most people’s natural eyelashes grow and shed in cycles of around 6 to 8 weeks.
We naturally lose 2-5 natural eyelashes a day, so if you get lash extensions, you can expect them to last for 6 to 8 weeks before you need a complete new set, or 2-3 weeks for a refill. .
Of course, how long your extensions last will also depend on how well you take care of them. Practicing good lash hygiene to help extend the life of your eyelash extensions.
If you want your lash extensions to last as long as possible, be sure to follow all aftercare instructions from your lash artist.
Permanent lash transplant surgery?
Eyelash transplant surgery involves moving hair from one part of the body (usually the back of the head) to the eyelash area (upper or lower eyelid).
Unlike lash extensions, which require constant maintenance every 6 to 8 weeks, eyelash transplant surgery guarantees more permanent results because it’s technically a form of hair transplant surgery. We recommend looking up the pros and cons of this surgery before committing to having it done.
Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty treatment that can last for weeks, but are they permanent? The answer is no. While lash extensions may last for several weeks, they will eventually fall out and need to be replaced. If you’re looking for a long-term solution, consider getting eyelash transplant surgery instead. These semi-permanent implants will give you longer, thicker lashes that will look great all the time.
