You can create a Font object with the font face and size that you need, then you can apply the font to the label using myLabel.setFont(myFont);

look at the api docs for Font, and you'll find this constructor
public Font(String name,int style,int size)

and you would write it something like this
label.setFont(new Font("Lucida",Font.PLAIN,24)); //24 = size
