How long do extensions last?
Briefly: Maintenance fill appointments are recommended every 2 weeks.
Factors affecting how long they may last include: how slow or fast your natural lashes grow and shed, how regularly and how effetively you are cleaning your lashes, whether you habitually rub or itch your lashline from your sleep, allergies, restless hands, contacts wearing or dry eyes. Fills are recommended every 2 weeks because the weight distribution of the eyelash extension changes as it grows further out from your eyelash, becoming top-heavy.
