Like many people today, I live a very stressful life and when I am not at work, I am always busy caring for my two young children. One day, I decided to get a massage at a local spa to ease my sore, aching muscles. Once I entered the salon, I realized they had a great half-day package deal that also included a manicure, pedicure, and a body wrap. I decided to go for the package and I found the experience very relaxing. My stress virtually melted away and I now take time to visit the spa every month to enjoy the package. I am eager to share my experiences with salons and spas with others who want to learn more about what they have to offer on my new blog!
After your first time getting eyelash extensions, you probably enjoyed looking in the mirror and seeing those thick, full lashes. But, in a few weeks' time, if you want the lashes to keep looking the best, you will need to have them filled. This process is not too different from having the lashes put in in the first place, but it's still nice to know what to expect — and you can learn that below.
When To Have Your Lashes Filled
In most cases, people need their lashes filled about 2–3 weeks after they are first applied. However, a few factors can affect the timing of your fill appointment. If you are too vigorous when washing your lashes, or if you wear a lot of eye makeup that you really have to work to remove, you may lose some lash extensions and need a fill a bit sooner. If you sleep on a rougher pillowcase, you may lose lashes at night and need a fill sooner.
Also, the thicker your extensions, the faster you're likely to need a fill — provided you want to maintain that very-full appearance.
Usually, your stylist will schedule your first fill for two weeks after your initial eyelash application, and if that timing seems too long or too short, they'll adjust the schedule the next time.
What Happens in the Chair
When you do arrive at your lash appointment, the process will be about the same as having a full set of lashes put in place. You'll lean back in the chair, and the stylist will put paper guards over your eyes. Then, they will remove any loose lashes. You may feel a little plucking sensation as they do this. Lashes that are still secure are left in place.
Next, your stylist will attach some more lashes, using glue. You'll smell some odor as the glue is applied, but it starts to dry within a minute. Your stylist will focus on putting new lashes in places where the old ones fell out. All in all, a fill appointment usually takes about an hour or so depending on the artist's speed. If it takes longer than this, then you've lost a lot of lashes since your previous appointment, which generally means you should schedule your next fill session at a closer interval.
Now you should have a better idea of what a lash fill session looks like and involves. Contact a lash service for more information about lash fills.Share
