Microblading - Eyebrow Emroidery
It’s a cosmetic tattooing technique designed to give you fuller and more prominent eyebrow featured on your face.
We are licensed, insured and certified with the AAM (American Academy of micro pigmentation). Bella holds over 40 certificates with some of the best artists in the industry.
The process is done via a blade which consists of micro-needles. I will match the ink to the skin tones and the color of the hair. I then make an incision that will mimic a hair into the superficial layers of the skin. This creates hair like strokes in order to create a fuller, natural brow design.

Microblading - Eyebrow Emroidery
Lash extensions and lash lifts are 2 totally different procedures. I will not be adding any additional lashes to you. I will simply be curling your natural lashes. That said, for most, it can make your lashes appear fuller because they are so uplifted.
Pretty simple: Do not apply an oil based products to the lashes for the first 24 hours.
No. The lifting solutions are only applied to the new growth area of the lashes, down towards the base and up a bit. Never to the ends of the lashes.
None at all! You don’t have to do anything special with your lashes in between lifts.
Of course! You’ll just achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your curled lashes.
I have been trained and certified to do a Lash Lift.
Some of the lash perms of years past use tiny little rods that product a way too inverted curl. Others, use a type of lash curler/clamp which can be uncomfortable and difficult to work with. The methods I employ use silicon domed shields that lift the lashes from the root, producing a beautiful, uplifted look as if you used a high quality eyelash curler.
Yes. Some of the most dramatic results I’ve achieved have been from those using Latisse® because their lashes are already so long
No. At first, when I’m applying the shields to the eyelids, it may feel a bit strange. But, for the most part, it’s very relaxing! You just kick back and relax 🙂
Heck yes! Anyone with these types of pesky lashes will love the lash lift! Post treatment, your lashes will all be evenly dispersed and lifted.
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 6 to 8 weeks.
Most of the time, yes. Though it can be challenging if the lashes aren’t even long enough to bring up and back on to the shield. But I say, give it a shot once and see how you do!
I have found, on occasion, that it’s very difficult and sometimes not possible to sustain the curl with lashes that have a strong cowlick or slanted growth pattern. Also, growth patterns due to plastic surgery in the eye area are often not able to be corrected. I say, give the treatment a shot once, and let’s see how your lashes hold the curl.
Yes. If ever in doubt, always consult with your physician.
You need to wait at least 1 year from your surgery. It has been my experience with clients who have had this surgery that there is an increased sensitivity in the eye area for quite a while. You need to give yourself that time to heal first. After that, you can consult with your physician to be sure.
Yes, but you need to wait at least 6 months. As always, when in doubt, please consult with your physician. Who is this procedure NOT good for?
Chronic dry eye, conjunctivitis, damaged lashes or lashes with gaps (this treatment may make the gaps more noticeable), active eye infections of any kind, trichotillomania (habitual pulling out of lashes), recent chemo treatments (you will need to wait at least a year from your last treatment. When in doubt, always consult with your physician.)
