With more than 20 years of health-care experience under his belt, Dr. Lino Ossanna oversees the skilled staff at Allure Skin and Laser, where he works onsite. Along with Jena P. Boynton, a certified injector, the doctor and his staff turn back the clock on skin with nonsurgical services. Their intense pulsed light treatments can eliminate unwanted body hair and minimize the appearance of blemishes and leftover Halloween masks. To alleviate skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scars, they customize chemical peels and facials to each client's needs. All of their services integrate high-end products from brands such as Obagi Medical, Colorescience Pro, and Latisse.
After stepping into 20 Volume Salon & Spa, the front desk’s river-rock background immediately foreshadows a relaxing day of pampering. At the 2,600-square-foot Aveda Concept establishment, visitors can unload their stresses in the guest lounge or on the outdoor patio before their appointments. Clients look into the large, plum-framed mirrors at each of the salon area’s 11 styling stations, where they can watch as a stylist renovates their hair with precision cuts, classic Aveda scalp treatments, coloring, and updos. Inside 20 Volume’s private treatment areas, patrons achieve a movie star appearance with complexion-balancing Enbrightenment facials, rosemary-mint body wraps, and sparkles meticulously installed into their smiles.
At The Skin Bar at Bloom Studios, aesthetician Kaylynn shows her devotion to skincare by using only the gentlest, most effective professional products. Her sextet of facials draw from custom-blended Only Yourx Skin Care serums, which combat wrinkles or dryness with a high concentration of plant extracts and natural minerals. Similarly, her Cetaphil waxing services free follicles from the face, body, and bikini zone with hypoallergenic ingredients.
Because The Skin Bar is located inside Bloom Studios, patrons can benefit from the studio’s many comforts. A café fills hands with cups of coffee that may be taken to the idyllic courtyard, where patrons read or summon relaxing bird songs with free WiFi.
Along with being an accomplished singer and jazz composer, Dr. Elisa S. Mashal of Laguna Laser Hair Removal & Aesthetics has practiced dermatology medicine for more than 15 years. Within the building's private treatment rooms, she and her team of trained specialists zap away tattoos, unwanted hair, and spider veins using advanced laser technology. The Candela AlexTriVantage and GentleMax laser systems pulse at varying wavelengths to zap every pigment of ink or blemish while stimulating the growth of new, healthy cells.
Dr. Mashal and her staff also conduct microdermabrasions and facials that rejuvenate visages with Rhonda Allison skincare products. To ensure that every client receives expert care, the clinic's technicians keep their skills fresh with continuing education and pop quizzes in the middle of treatments.
It should surprise nobody that Wax On Wax Off is devoted to the art of hair removal. What is surprising, however, is just how many treatments fill the menu at this strictly-waxing boutique. Hands, legs, chins, eyebrows, bikini lines, even feet—none of these areas are off-limits to the team of waxing specialists. There are even special waxing services for men (the "Bro"-zilian is an increasingly popular choice that leave skin smooth and comes with a righteous high five).
Certified electrologist Holly Pitman relies on electricity to free follicles of unwanted hair. She accomplishes this feat by inserting a fine metal probe into individual follicles—a process designed for permanent hair removal—whereby a mild electrical current destroys the hair at the root. Holding another certification in microcurrent technology, Holly also promotes smooth, wrinkle-free skin with microcurrent therapy and LED-light treatments.
