The Beauty Lab's menu of facials, PCA skin treatments, and hair-removal services actually acts as more of a jumping-off point than a rigid list. That's because all these treatments?not just the custom ones?use products tailored to the client's skin and personal preferences.
Facials rely on specialized masks and serums to fight signs of aging, combat acne, or keep the skin looking as dewy as a blade of grass in a plants pin-up calendar. Different PCA peel ingredients can be blended together and enhanced with a collagen-boosting retinol if the client needs it. And because many people have sensitive skin or simply distrust soft wax, The Beauty Lab offers two more hair-removal agents in addition to traditional soft wax?hard wax and a sugar paste mixed by an onsite aesthetician.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
