Karla Cabrera, FNP-C Bella Medspa Tempe Arizona

About Me

MEET KARLA CABRERA, FNP-C

Karla Cabrera was born in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, México in 1988. When her mom asked her “the question,” the one everyone asks you when you start school, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’—Karla seriously replied, “I want to be an astronaut, a doctor, or a magician”; fast-forward almost three decades later, in 2018, Karla is the founder of Bella Medical Spa in Tempe, AZ, combining Western medicine with aesthetic magic. Karla is a board-certified nurse practitioner from Chamberlain College of Nursing, and she also pursued several certifications to become an advanced cosmetic injector. She is known in the medical aesthetic industry for producing natural, transformative results.

Karla founded Bella Advanced Aesthetics Training and has personally educated a wide array of medical providers in the aesthetic community since 2019. Karla is detail oriented, driven, and perpetually trying to learn, expand, and enhance her medical aesthetic skills. In 2022, Karla opened her second location in Phoenix, Arizona, and she plans to expand her aesthetics services to include over 80 aesthetic treatments provided to her patients. Karla loves working in this industry and has a passion for helping her patients become the best refreshed version of themselves.

In her spare time, Karla loves cuddling and watching movies with her two daughters and her husband. Karla loves learning new hobbies, reading, hiking, and working out. It is her priority to be an example to her daughters as she prides herself on being as healthy as possible, as a NP injector, a mother, a wife, a woman, a daughter, and all the “hats” she uses as a small business owner.
