Lash & Brow Services Offered At The Gallery Of Cosmetic Surgery
The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of lash and brow artistry services for patients wanting a longer lasting way to enhance their brows and eyelashes. With various options, our providers can help you determine the best treatment based on your goals. This is best accomplished during a consultation appointment which can be performed on its own or prior to treatment.
A lash lift and tint is the most basic way to increase the length and darken the color of your lashes. While most dramatic on people with blonde or red lashes, it can provide great results on people with any lash color. The treatment involves perming the natural lashes into their longest position. This also creates the desired curl usually obtained with an eyelash curler.
From there, the lashes are tinted. Tints come in different shades, however, most people chose to go for black or dark brown. After the procedure, the lashes will look like you are wearing mascara and lash makeup. This lasts around four to six weeks for most people depending on lash growth.
Eyelash extensions use individual faux lashes to extend the length, volume, and prominence of the eyelashes. They can result in both extremely natural and extremely dramatic looking lashes depending on the client’s individual needs. The lashes will naturally fall out over time but can be filled as needed to maintain the look permanently. If left to fall out, it will usually take four to eight weeks.
Lash Extension Removal
Removing eyelash extensions should occur in one of two ways. Either naturally, by allowing the lashes to fall out on their own, or they should be removed professionally. Pulling out your lashes yourself or having an untrained person do it for you can damage your natural lashes. Therefore, our master estheticians offer lash extension removal services to prevent this lash damage from occurring.
Brow waxing is arguably the simplest form of brow shaping. It removes unnecessary hair and can also remove hair in a way that creates the desired shape. Even if you like the natural shape of your brows, a brow wax can keep thick brows looking neat and cared for. Waxing and tweezing by a professional can help you see the best possible results with permanently damaging your brow or the growth pattern.
Waxing and caring for the eyebrows is a true art that requires a trained professional. Our master estheticians and brow artists create highly stylized brows that enhance the overall shape and brow arch.
A brow tint is often performed alongside a brow wax or brow lamination treatment. It darkens the eyebrows for a moderately enhanced look. Normally, a brow tint only goes one to two shades darker than your natural hair color. This accentuates the brows without looking unnatural or like you have done anything but put on makeup. Similar to a lash tint, eyebrow tinting tends to last around four to six weeks for most people.
Brow lamination is comparable to a lash lift. It essentially perms the brow hairs into a certain direction or shape. For people with thick or unruly brows who do not want to thin them too much, this may be a fantastic option. Additionally, brow lamination is great for a subtle brow enhancement and can be combined with a brow tint for the ultimate, quick brow enhancement.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattoo that is the longest lasting brow enhancement available. It lasts for an average of two years with some results lasting three or four years. Microblading tends to look natural, though it depends on the type of microblading you get. The three microblading techniques The Gallery of Cosmetic offers are:
- Traditional Microblading: This involves using a small single blade dipped in semi-permanent tattoo ink to create hair-like strokes to fill in the brows and create the desired shape. Precise and requiring artistic skill, traditional microblading helps accentuate your natural facial features and symmetry.
- Powder Brows: Also known as ombré brows, this technique focuses on creating brows that look like makeup. The powder brows technique uses small dots of ink to fill in and shape the brows into their desired appearance. This boosts the density of the brows and can disguise scarring or gaps in the eyebrows.
- Combo Brows: Combination brows use both the traditional microblading and powder brows techniques to create natural looking brows. Using this combination of artistic techniques, combo brows account for all aspects of your natural brow hair growth and anatomy. This is one of the newest and most in-demand forms of microblading currently available.
Sometimes–due to poor quality materials, provider inexperience, or simply bad luck–microblading results can turn out less than ideally. Thankfully, most issues are correctable with a customized revision microblading.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which Is Better Lash Lift Or Lash Extensions?
Determining whether a lash lift or lash extensions are best for you, the first thing to consider is your natural lashes. If you have naturally short lashes, a lash lift may not be recommended or possible. While you do not need long lashes, it cannot be performed on lashes that are too short. Similarly, if you have brittle, thin lashes, they may not be able to hold up even the most basic lash extensions.
Next, you must think about what you want from your results. Do you want natural results? Something more dramatic? Do you care if they look fake? Answering these questions can help you determine whether the more natural lash lift or the more dramatic lash extensions are right for you.
Finally, discuss both options with your master esthetician. Based on an examination of your lashes and your goals, they can recommend the treatment that will provide you the results you want and which is most viable for you.
What Are The Benefits Of Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination carries many benefits. Among the benefits of brow lamination include:
- Fuller looking brows
- Disguises patchiness
- Create a cleaner shape
- Correct unruly brow hairs
- Does not involve any sort of extensions
- Quick procedure
- Viable for brows of all types
- Can be combined with a brow tint
Does Tinting Damage Your Eyebrows?
Tinting is unlikely to damage your eyebrows when performed by a professional. The tints are gentler than traditional hair dyes and bleaching is not performed during the procedure. The eyebrow dyes at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery are unlikely to cause any permanent or long lasting damage. Though some dyes on the market can, it is best to see a professional.
If you have concerns about allergic reactions, your master esthetician can perform a patch test before your Bellevue brow tinting appointment to ensure a low risk of allergic reaction.
Who Should Not Do Microblading?
Microblading is among the best brow enhancement options available. However, it is not recommended to everyone. Traditional microblading is not recommended for those with overly oily skin. Though powder brows are okay for oily skin. Otherwise, people with certain skin conditions such as eczema may risk increased irritation, flare-ups, or damage to their skin Therefore, in most cases, it is not recommended to these patients.
Ultimately, your microblading artist is the best person to help you determine if microblading is right for you. They can discuss your recent treatments, medical history, and lifestyle to determine if you are a microblading candidate and the right technique.
How Many Lashes Are In A Full Set?
It depends on the type of lash extensions you opt for, but in an average set of eyelash extensions, there are around 180 to 300 individual extensions between both eyes. If you get lower lash extensions, this will involve at least another 140 extensions.
