I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me….

Urban Body Blog

I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me…. and I think I like it….. I have always been content with the way I appear on the outside.  I’m no beauty queen, but I’m happy about how I look. Also, I have never been caught up with getting older.  Some of the most beautiful humans I have ever laid eyes on are in their 80’s. So, I had never really thought of facial rejuvenation as something I’d be into.  I heard the ads that my friends from Urban Body Laser ran on the PEAK pretty much ever since we …

Post-Summer Skincare Treatments

Urban Body Blog, Skin Care, skin treatments, Staff Favourites, Staff Picks, urban body laser

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 …

Tattoos and Laser Hair Removal

Urban Body Blog

Mention this post and you’ll receive 20% off your next laser hair removal treatment! Tattoos are form of personal expression. For many, meaningful imagery permanently transforms the body into a work of art, essentially making your skin a blank canvas. While some argue that tattoos are an addiction, others say it’s merely a passion for beauty and meaning. However you view tattooing, those with their body fully inked will often tell you that one tattoo usually sparks the desire for another. So whether you have a full sleeve or are thinking it’s time to go under the needle, there are …

Meet the Team! Channa Shares Her Tips for the New Year

Urban Body Blog

Now that January is coming to a close, the resolutions made at the beginning of this month may now be starting to fizzle. However, that doesn’t mean you need to get down on yourself! We chatted with Channa, our Medical Esthetician at Urban Body Laser in Vancouver, and asked her to share some tips for making 2015 the best year yet. Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I am actually a firm believer that the New Year is not the best time to start resolutions because I feel like everyone just makes them for the sake of making them. If you …

Lights, Camera, Photorejuvenation!

Urban Body Blog

Incase you haven’t heard, our Photofacials are on special! 1 Photofacial for $299 — that’s a $250 savings! (regular $550) January is a great month to get started on this non-invasive treatment because you need to spend limited time in the sun between appointments (which is easy to do on the west coast!). Photofacials, or photorejuvenation, uses light technology that minimizes brown spots, sun damage, fine wrinkles, and enlarged pores. It significantly improves redness caused by rosacea and acne scarring while simultaneously smoothing skin’s texture. Plus photorejuvenation significantly reduces signs of aging. In fact, a study conducted at Stanford University proved that …

Fall into Planning for Laser Hair Removal

Urban Body Blog

Though you may be packing away those bikinis in storage, we don’t want you to completely forget about summer. That’s because right now is the best time to get started on your laser hair removal treatments. It’s a common misconception that laser only needs to be done when the weather requires barely-there clothing. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. We have four systems that treat areas like underarms, face, bikini line, legs, and our signature Balls-n-All™. Out of these machines, three of them require that you have zero sun exposure for one month, which makes ‘Raincouver’ the perfect …

Part 2: Skin Care Benefits of HydroGel and Gentle Cleanser

Urban Body Blog

In our last blog post, we talked about two products that we highly recommend to our clients for laser hair removal treatment: Gentle Cleanser and Hydrogel. These offer a number of benefits to soothe and heal the skin before and after each appointment. However, they can be used for so much more than just that. In fact, the Urban Body Laser team uses these two products in their daily skin care regime. Having a medicine cabinet stocked to the brim with a different bottle for each possible skin treatment not only becomes confusing, but it’s also a waste of money. …

It’s one of our favourite times in Vancouver, Pride Week! We love how it draws people together to celebrate who they are and whatever lifestyle they choose to lead. Not to mention it’s an awesome party! Vancouver Pride Week serves as a great reminder to be happy with who we are. Working in the beauty and health industry, day after day we meet people who are embarrassed or even ashamed of their appearance. That’s why we take such pride in what we do, as we see our clients’ confidence and self-esteem levels go from 0 to 100 after their treatments. …
