Frequently Asked Questions - Mink Eyelash Extensions
What are MINK Lash Extensions?
MINK Lash Extensions are single strand, tapered lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses and curvature designed to attach to your own natural lash. In simple terms, it looks like a single, real human lash with amplified thickness and curve.
These can be made of synthetic fiber, fine silk or real mink. We use a combination of Novalash (synthetic) and mink lashes to get the fullest, most realistic eye enhancing look unique to every woman.
Unlike fake lashes that come in a strip, these are applied one single lash at a time using a physician developed medical grade adhesive. The lash extension will never be attached to your skin or your eyelid, so it follows the natural growth and bloom of your own lashes.
Lash extensions are also surprisingly weightless, and once attached, just looks like they’re yours to begin with.
Why NOVALASH Extensions?
Our Novalash certified Artist only use the best of the best products for the safety of our clients and ourselves.
NOVALASH uses medical grade adhesives. Novalash purifies its adhesives with no exposure to contaminants and do not contain any detectable formaldehyde as manufactured and delivered in the bottle and is confirmed by testing under FDA.
Novalash cosmetics are all scientifically formulated, ophthalmologist tested, and glycol and carbonate-free with many enhanced with natural plant extracts, peptides and multi-vitamins to promote healthier natural lashes. Cyanoacrylate adhesives used are just like in the medical industry for things like liquid stitches. Eyelash extensions are every client. There are about 4~10 different lengths, 4 different widths and 3 different types of curl to achieve the best natural look to the most glamorous dramatic look. It’s not a one size fits all. I usually do a minimum of 3 different types of lashes each.
What are the after-care instructions for NOVALASH Extensions?
• Do not expose Nova Lash Eyelash Extensions to water 24 hours after the application.
• When washing the face, use care and avoid splashing water or cleanser in the eye area.
• Do not swim, use hot tubs, jacuzzis or steam rooms for 48 hours.

• Use only Nova Lash approved water-soluble mascara on your eyelash extensions when needed in between scheduled appointments.
