When eyelash extensions are removed, it is possible for the eyelashes to grow back. However, this process can take up to 6 weeks or longer, depending on the amount of damage done to the hair follicle. Pulling an eyelash can slow down the regrowth process, and it may take months for the eyelashes to fully regenerate. If the hair follicle has been severely damaged or destroyed, the eyelashes may not grow back.
There are several factors that can cause eyelash loss, such as trichotillomania, an impulse control disorder that involves an irresistible desire to pull hair from the head and other parts of the body. If you suffer from this condition, it is important to seek professional help. Your doctor can make the best treatment plan for your condition. Additionally, allergies to eye makeup can also cause eyelash loss.
There are home remedies you can try to accelerate eyelash growth, such as applying olive oil, massaging your eyelashes and applying biotin products. If the eyelash loss is caused by a thyroid condition or an autoimmune disease, it is important to treat the underlying health problems first before attempting to stop losing eyelashes. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are two thyroid conditions that can cause eyelash loss. It is also important to actively change habits that damage your eyelashes or proceed to take medication if there is an underlying medical condition that caused your eyelashes to fall out.
Bioluma is a clinically proven treatment that can help lengthen, thicken and darken your eyelashes. Alopecia areata is a condition that doesn't allow future eyelash growth unless you start taking prescription medications that help ease symptoms. While it's quite normal to lose 1 to 2 eyelashes a day, significant loss of hair on your eyelashes or eyebrows (madarosis) may indicate a more serious problem. Like the hair on the top of the head, the hairs on the eyelashes grow, fall out and grow back, this process lasts between 4 and 16 weeks (Aumond, 201).
If only the eyelashes have been affected by a burn and the hair follicle remains unharmed, the eyelashes will fully regenerate. Latisse lengthens the eyelash growth phase and increases the number of eyelashes that grow, but it takes at least two months to see results.
