+ Questions about: Eyelash Extensions

Why is the lash cycle important to understand?

Understanding the eyelash growth cycle is crucial for anyone considering or currently enjoying eyelash extensions, like those offered at Pia Esthetics Day Spa. Here's a simplified explanation, based on information from Medical News Today:

  1. The Eyelash Growth Cycle: Eyelashes, like all hair, go through a growth cycle that includes three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transition), and telogen (resting). This cycle is important to understand because it affects how eyelash extensions behave and last.

  2. Anagen Phase: This is the growth phase where eyelashes are actively growing. It can last between 30 to 45 days. During this phase, if an eyelash falls out, a new one starts growing immediately, meaning your extensions will need adjustments.

  3. Catagen Phase: This transition phase lasts about two to three weeks. During this time, the eyelash stops growing, and the hair follicle shrinks. If an eyelash falls out in this phase, it won't immediately grow back, which can create gaps in your lash line.

  4. Telogen Phase: The final phase is a resting period that can last around 100 days before the eyelash falls out, and a new one begins to grow. This phase is why you might notice some natural shedding of lashes and extensions.

  5. Regular Touch-Ups: Because each eyelash is at a different stage in the growth cycle, regular touch-ups are necessary. At Pia Esthetics Day Spa, we recommend touch-ups every 3-4 weeks to maintain the full, lush look of your extensions. This is because, at any given time, a portion of your lashes will be in the telogen phase and ready to shed.

  6. Maintaining Your Extensions: Understanding this cycle helps in setting realistic expectations for the maintenance of eyelash extensions. It's not that the extensions are failing; it's simply the natural cycle of your lashes.

In summary, the lash cycle is a natural process that dictates the longevity and maintenance needs of eyelash extensions. Regular touch-ups at Pia Esthetics Day Spa are essential to keep your lashes looking their best, aligning with the natural growth and shedding cycle of your eyelashes.
