Tiffany Amorosino Of Bella Santé Shares What She Loves Most About Boston

In 1996, Bella Santé was simply a small skin care clinic in Lexington with just four treatment rooms. Today, the popular day spa and salon has expanded to three locations (a second is located in Wellesley and their flagship haute spot is on Newbury Street in Boston), more than 40 treatment rooms, a staff of over 200, and treatments that range from stress reduction massages and blueberry smoothie facials to keratin express blowouts and whipped honey and nectar pedicures.
