Treatment: Microneedling 2.0 GROWTH FACTOR infusion by Skin Medica
I was lucky to try one of their skin treatments: Microneedling with Skin Pen. Being a woman of color, you are always vary of trying new techniques however, the first thing that Lesley Bowen, the owner of L.A.B Beauty told me that it was safe for darker skin tones.
The Skin Pen is the first FDA approved microneedling treatment and has been clinically tested and proven and has been made in the USA. Hygiene is very important and everything in the spa is clean and masks are worn when doing the treatments.
The whole procedure took about an hour and a half. I was numbed 30 minutes prior to the procedure with 5% lidocaine topical cream Skin Pen Microneedling 2.0 was used and my skin was infused with Skin Medica’s patented Epidermal Growth Factor serum called TNS Recovery.
The TNS Recovery Serum is this next-generation, skin rejuvenating formula that improves the appearance of coarse wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, and texture. It’s the only growth factor product proven to address sagging skin. EPG’s are proteins found in the skin, as one age’s these numbers decrease. The TNS Recovery Serum helps the skin looking plump and youthful.
The treatment was pain free as I was numbed but the serum kept the skin moist and relaxed. Overall, it was a very good treatment. After a few days, I saw some light peeling and then there was a strong glow on my skin.
The location of L.A.B Beauty will be changing soon as the present location is a heritage building and the new location would be announced in September 2022.
There are a lot of spas that offer various services but L.A.B Beauty offers care and that is what I really loved. So much information was given to me about the procedure that I felt at ease and relaxed. Cleanliness and hygiene are a priority in this spa which again makes one feel very comfortable instantly. A client is always nervous about getting treatments that are expensive especially in today’s time, however when the prices are reasonable and the spa gives attention and care to their clients, it makes the experience completely amazing and this is what L.A.B Beauty is all about!
