Scully and Carmen Bonanno Scully, sales documents show. As Daily Report previously reported, Howell and Kepper purchased the property to move their Aesthetic Medicine Institute and Anti Aging Clinics of Louisiana into a larger office to double its practice size, hire new staff and open a school to train aestheticians and cosmetologists in laser procedures.
