Eyelash treatment

share, link, spread

Eyelashes are terminal hairs that grow from the follicles around the eye. Like hair, they are made up of keratinised dead cells, binding material, melanin granules and small amounts of water. The outer surface is made up of a series of overlapping layers made up of cuticle cells, which protect the inside, called the cortex. The cortex contributes to the shape, mechanical properties and colour of the eyelashes.

The shape of the eyelashes varies according to ethnicity. The eyelashes of Caucasian women, for example, have a greater curvature than the eyelashes of Asian women, which tend to be straighter.

The main function of the eyelashes is to protect the eyes. They prevent impurities and microorganisms from getting inside the eyeball. They also protect us against solar radiation, a very important function since without them we would continuously suffer countless irritations.

The eyelashes are arranged in a row along the edges of the eyelids with a varying thickness: on the upper eyelid we can find about 200 eyelashes, but on the lower only about 80. Eyelashes renew every 5-6 months and take 7 to 8 weeks to grow, so we must take great care of them to keep them in perfect condition.

The health and care of the eyelashes can be affected by several factors:

There are many other causes that can weaken eyelashes. Certain medical treatments, such as radiation therapy, and some diseases can cause loss, as can cosmetic treatments, such as permanent eyelashes or extensions.

Eyelashes are also subjected to external aggressions such as pollution and solar radiation on a daily basis, as well as make-up and make-up removal with aggressive products.
