The Growth Cycle of Eyelashes
Eyelashes are hairs, and like any hair on the human body, there is a growth (and death) cycle. There are
three phases in eyelash growth:
1. Anagen Phase – is the active phase, and the only time lashes grow. Cellular division during the anagen phase builds the shaft of the lash. As the cells multiply, the lash is pushed out of the lid. Most of the hair on the body is in the amagen phase at the same time, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
2. Catagen Phase – this transitional phase begins immediately after the anagen phase is ended. As the shortest of the three stages, the catagen phase is the period when the lash is moving from growth to rest. In addition to being the shortest phase, the fewest amount of hairs on the body are in the catagen phase at one time.
3.Telogen Phase – both the hair (lash) and follicle are at rest. There is no lash growth for the lashes in the telogen phase. Once the new lash begins to grow (anagen phase), it pushes the old lash out (shedding).
