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.
Henna artists accent the newly minted skin with ornately crafted floral patterns and designs. With henna cones in hand, they weave images that vary in detail, from simple yet striking dragonflies and Ankh symbols to larger and more elaborate illustrations of elephants, rabbits, and trees. Ceremonial henna tattoos decorate bodies with a reddish brown ink that's believed to bring good luck. Customers can further enhance their features at the hands of threading artists, who brandish strands of thin cotton to meticulously shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair. The process is quicker and gentler than traditional waxing, allowing patrons to stop by whenever they're on lunch or have placed an identically dressed mannequin at their desk.

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.
