Summertime means sun, shorts, and sandals. But with that beach hair and bronzed skin also comes sun damage. While prevention is the first line of defense, no one (and no sunscreen) is perfect. We’ve listed our top treatments for after-sun care to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Microdermabrasion: Exposure to sun, chlorine and salt water can dry out your skin, causing it to peel and flake. The buildup of dead skin can make skin appear dull, blotchy and uneven. Exfoliation is crucial to help remove sun damage and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it softer and brighter. Our microdermabrasion treatments …

Urban Body Blog, urban body laser

Let’s face it; personal grooming is no longer an essential activity for just women. Men are also expected to be trim and smooth ‘down there’, but remembering to shave your private areas can easily slip many guys minds.

That’s why we created our signature treatment specially formulated for men: Balls-n-All™. This treatment removes all hair on a male’s private parts, including the shaft and base of the penis, the testicles, the area between the anus and the testicles, as well as the area between …

Serums 101

Urban Body Blog, Fashion and Beauty, Skin Care, urban body laser

You may have noticed more advertisements and buzz around serums. A relatively new product in the skincare market, serums are gaining a loyal following for many reasons. However, we find many clients are confused over why, when, and how to use them. A common misconception is that serums can replace moisturizers. This is completely false as they both have very different purposes. Facial creams have been around for a long time and are still the most popular form of skin care. They’re a vital component to any skin care regime and should never be replaced with serums or any other …

Botox is cosmetically used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles. It’s injected in extremely small concentrations and is proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein.

As a result, wrinkles like …
