That stress can cause natural eyelashes to fall out prematurely, and when that happens consistently, it can cause permanent damage. Eyelash extensions do not damage eyelashes when applied correctly. To avoid damaging natural eyelashes, eyelash extensions must be carefully selected (length and thickness) and correctly applied to one natural eyelash at a time. Numerous reasons for the procedure can lead to a person having blood-injected red eyes.
From faulty equipment to something as simple as having sensitive eyes can cause this side effect. In reality, there isn't much evidence to show if eyelash extensions actually affect your natural eyelash length or your long-term health. However, there is a very small risk of developing traction alopecia, says Dr. Zaina Al-Mohtaseb, adjunct professor of ophthalmology at Baylor School of Medicine in Houston, where natural eyelashes can fall out as a result of the consistent weight of repeated eyelash extensions.
If you or your technician ever worry about the health of your natural eyelashes, you may need a break. However, if the extensions applied are the right length and thickness for your natural eyelashes, you've gently cleaned them with an oil-free cleanser and an eyelash shampoo, there's no reason you can't keep using extensions. In fact, a large proportion of our customers here have been using eyelashes continuously for 5 to 10 years without any problems. If you start to take extra care when cleaning eye makeup (which can block hair follicles and hinder hair growth), you'll probably see that your own eyelashes return to good health.
Unlike temporary false eyelashes, which are attached to the eyelid in a single strip, eyelash extensions are individual eyelashes. You can get false eyelashes that stick together in a bunch with an adhesive or you can get eyelash extensions from a professional who manually places an individual eyelash for each of your natural eyelashes. When applied correctly by a licensed and trained professional, eyelash extensions are a sure way to improve the look of natural eyelashes. There is no need to give your natural lashes a break between eyelash extension sessions when applied correctly.
One of the other side effects of wearing eyelash extensions is having constant eye irritation. When eyelash extensions are applied correctly, they must absolutely respect the natural growth cycle of natural eyelashes. Eyelash extensions should be done by a professional eyelash technician if you want to avoid ruining your natural eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent eyelashes that are glued by hand to natural lashes, says Andra Marin, artistic director and expert eyelash stylist at Courtney Akai Lash Boutique in New York.

So, consider these flaws before booking your next salon appointment for an eyelash extension session. If you feel that mascara isn't enough and you're okay with the additional maintenance and money that eyelash extensions require, it's definitely worth looking for a specialist and having a consultation, in my opinion.
