Quarantine took its toll on our skin, that’s for sure. So you can understand why we were knocking on the doors of Revitalize MedSpa the moment they were open and back to business! Lauren Cardone, APRN, give us a full COVID-over, please!

Step 1 – Vitamin Shots!
We each got a Super Fat Burner Energy shot. Lipotropic amino acids + fat burner B Vitamins + Bioavailable B12 for a quick energy blast and a metabolic kick start. Yep, stick that needle in us!
Lauren’s new location in Old Saybrook is open and airy and feels clean and not over-crowded. There’s comfortable seating in the waiting area and two treatment rooms. Lovely!
Some of Revitalize MedSpa’s most popular services are IPL laser treatments for skin rejuvenation, hydrafacials, anti-wrinkle injections, facial fillers, and medical grade skincare.
Lauren specializes in administering Botox and other cosmetic injections; combining artistry with skill to deliver natural-looking results that significantly diminish signs of aging.
Q time with Lauren Cardone, APRN
My passion has always been women’s health. I started my career as a nurse at Yale Cancer Center. After having two children, my passion for women’s health led to a path of wanting to treat/make women feel good about themselves.
My experience includes working with reputable plastic surgeons and physicians who specialize in invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. In 2019, I was accepted to the Master Lip Class with Julie Horne in Oslo, Norway, and attended the training in November 2019.
My philosophy is to enhance and restore one’s own beauty to give a refreshed, youthful appearance; never overdone.
We can’t take our eyes off your skin! Share your secret…
We carry ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi at the Medspa and I totally love it. My regimen: wash, exfoliation scrub, toning pad, daily moisturizer, and some growth factor serum. Secret fact: I only wash my face at night, I have two toddlers, and I’m toast by 8 pm!
Fave meal? Chicken parm
Binge watching? RHONY, anything Bravo
Coffee or tea? Coffee, the hotter the better
Beauty icon? Marilyn Monroe all day
Secret talents? I can make real Italian “Gravy”; the Jersey slow-cooked Sunday sauce kind.
Step 2 – Injectables
Erase 2020 from our foreheads, thank you very much! Lauren marked us up and delivered us some wrinkle relief. Amen.
Step 3 – Skin health overhaul
After a comprehensive skin evaluation, Lauren challenged us both to follow a skin regimen using ZO® Skin Health products only for 10 days.
Complete game-changer. We’ve been using it for the past 2 weeks and we can’t believe it. Soft dewy skin can be ours! Every night we wash our faces, and every night we ask our husbands if they can believe how soft. They can’t.
This skincare line is no joke; filled with potent ingredients in high concentrations -pure retinol, advanced peptides, and powerful antioxidants.
