About Arianna Salvatore & Kimberly Dunne

I am a licensed Electrologist and laser specialist. I graduated from an accredited program and took the State exam to be licensed and registered with the state. I joined my mother’s business in November 2021 located in Melrose, Massachusetts. We now offer a range of different services from advanced medical skin care to beauty.

I offer Laser Hair Removal, electrolysis hair removal, permanent eyebrow shaping, advanced skin care treatments using an Intense Pulse Light LASER. This type of Laser penetrates to deeper layers of the skin to reverse impurities on face and body, longer-lasting results, and with little to no downtime before and after sessions. With our FDA approved Laser, we can treat acne clearance, sunspots, dark spots, fine lines, broken capillaries, decreasing pore size, hair removal, and perform what we call a “Photofacial” This targets your dermis layer to recorrect your skin, and stimulate collagen production. You will notice your skin becomes more of an even skin tone, tighter, plumped up, and shiny. In comparison to a chemical peel, it penetrates deeper, leaves with more permanent longer-lasting results, and sees beyond the dead layer of skin cells. 

Salon Indulgence by Kimberly has been a successful business for over a decade and with Lux Laser Lab joining the team our goal is to become more of a one stop shop.
