Frequently Asked Questions About Mink Lash Extensions
WHAT ARE MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Mink Eyelash Extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. Single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
HOW LONG WILL EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes, usually between 4 and 8 weeks. Depending on your activity and day to day routine.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET REFILLS?
It is recommended to get refills every 2 to 3 weeks. A refill is needed to fill in any lashes that have fallen due to the natural cycle of your own lashes. Refill appointments require 50-70 minutes.
ARE MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS SAFE?
10 SKYN uses pharmaceutical grade adhesive which never comes in contact with your skin. Faux mink eyelashes are adhered about 1mm away from your skin.
ARE MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS RIGHT FOR ME?
Mink Eyelash Extensions are beautiful and can be quite addictive, however they are not for everyone. If you are prone to allergic reactions, suffer from trichotillomania, have bad allergies or simply will not take proper care of them, mink eyelash extensions are not for you.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA TO MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED MAKEUP REMOVER OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA as they can dissolve the bonding agent used and they can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions. Use care when washing off the water-based mascara and only use a water based eye makeup remover.
CAN I SWIM, SHOWER & EXERCISE WHILE WEARING LASH EXTENSIONS?
Yes, but you will need to wait 48 hours before getting your lashes wet. The bonding agent used to apply your eyelash extensions takes 48 hours to completely set. After 48 hours your lashes are waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO APPLY LASH EXTENSIONS/HOW IS IT DONE?
The application process for mink eyelash extensions normally takes about 90-150 minutes and 50-70 minutes for a refill. You will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. Music is played while your mink eyelash extensions are applied. Your lower lashes will be covered. The extensions will then be applied to your upper lashes one by one.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE LOOK I WANT?
Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. We will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in.
DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR THE SERVICE?
You should thoroughly clean your lashes with a mild cleanser. Do not use a oily makeup remover to clean your lashes prior to the application. Lashes should not be curled and ALL mascara should be removed.
I WEAR CONTACTS, CAN I STILL GET MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Yes! Since eyelash extensions do not touch your skin, they do not conflict or interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities.

Yes! Appointments and a $25 non-refundable deposit for this service are required.
