What happens if you pull off your eyelashes?

Eyelashes may grow back if removed, but it may take longer than 6 weeks or longer. This is because pulling an eyelash slows down the regrowth process. 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. Trichotillomania, also known as trichomoniasis, occurs when a person can't resist the urge to pull their hair out.

Recurrent skin burning causes skin discoloration, scarring, and skin lesions. People tend to choose between multiple areas of the body and can choose both healthy and previously damaged skin. Trichotillomania, also known as “hair pulling disorder,” is a type of impulse control disorder. People with trichotillomania have an irresistible urge to pull out their hair, usually from the scalp, eyelashes, and eyebrows.

They know they can cause harm, but they often can't control the momentum. They may pull their hair out when they are stressed as a way to try to calm down. People often tear off their scalp, eyelashes and eyebrows, but they also tear off their arms, legs, and body hair. However, people with this disorder are not only concerned about the causes of trichotillomania, but also about the effects of compulsively plucking their eyelashes and hair.

The compulsive act of plucking your eyelashes or plucking your hair baffles most people, often even those who perform the act. It seems like a terrible situation, but plucking your eyelashes, or any other body hair, doesn't have to lead a life of misery. Many eyelash pullers from different support forums have reported that eyelashes have regrown even after years of persistent tugging behavior.
