For clients coming for a lash fill, it’s easier and quicker to remove the grown out lashes with a little drop of lash remover cream or gel remover. However, once the extensions grow out too far, we recommend removing them and applying a new set to protect your natural eyelashes. In addition, there are several other circumstances to look at before deciding whether to go ahead with a lash infill or a lash extensions removal and replace it with a new full set. Below we have outlined such circumstances to look at before making this decision:

Natural Lash Growth Cycle

Your natural lashes have a growth cycle, typically ranging from 60 to 90 days. As your natural lashes grow and shed, the extensions attached to them will also shed. After several weeks, the extensions can become uneven or sparse, necessitating a new full set to maintain a uniform appearance.

Poor Retention or Damage

If the extensions were not applied properly, or if they start to clump, twist, or cause discomfort, it’s best to remove them and start fresh. Improper application can lead to damage to your natural lashes, which can affect future lash health.

Hygiene and Health Concerns

Over time, oils, makeup residue, and environmental pollutants can accumulate on the lash extensions, making them harder to clean effectively. This buildup can increase the risk of eye infections or irritations. Removing the old set ensures better hygiene and eye health.

Desired Style Change

Sometimes, you may want a different look or style, such as changing the length, curl, or volume of the lashes. Starting with a new full set allows the lash technician to apply the extensions according to the new desired specifications without the constraints of the old set.

Allergic Reactions

If you experience an allergic reaction to the adhesive or materials used in the lash extensions, it’s crucial to remove them to prevent further irritation. Once the reaction has subsided, a patch test with different products can determine a safer option for future applications.

How Often Should This Be Done?

Generally, lash extensions can be refilled every 2 to 3 weeks to maintain their appearance. However, it’s recommended to remove and replace the full set every 6 to 8 weeks. This timeframe allows for a complete assessment of lash health, ensures optimal hygiene, and maintains the aesthetic quality of the extensions.

Process of Removal and Reapplication

  1. Professional Removal: It’s important to have extensions professionally removed to avoid damage to your natural lashes. Professionals use special solvents that safely dissolve the adhesive without harming your natural lashes.
  2. Assessment: Once the extensions are removed, the lash technician can assess the condition of your natural lashes and determine the best approach for the new application.
  3. Reapplication: The new full set is applied according to your desired style and the health of your natural lashes. This includes selecting appropriate lengths, curls, and thicknesses that suit your preferences and natural lash strength.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure your lash extensions remain healthy, comfortable, and beautiful.
