On May 13th from 6m to 8pm Urban Body Laser will be hosting a Botox Party! Treatments for Botox will be available for 20% off ($9.95 per unit) and fillers will be 10% off ($495 per syringe). 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. How it works is that it prevents signals from the nerve cells to reach the muscles, effectively leaving the muscles without instructions to contract. This causes them to paralyze. As a result, wrinkles like …

You may have finished Spring Cleaning your wardrobe, but have you ever considered clearing out your make-up bag and skincare collection? These types of products tend to be the ones that people rarely throw away. From nail polish to foundation, many of us hang on to these items way past their expiry date. Unlike food, many make-up and skincare products don’t list best-before dates so it can be hard to tell when it’s time to toss them. However, that doesn’t mean that they last forever. Even mascara and eye shadow can reach an end point. Applying moisturizer or foundation that’s …

Urban Body Blog, Staff Favourites, Staff Picks, urban body laser

It can be a scary transition departing your twenties and entering your thirties. As a 21 year old, no one expected you to think about saving for retirement, making your mortgage payments, or climbing up the corporate ladder. But now that you’ve reached a new decade in your life, it’s not just your responsibilities that may be plaguing your mind. There could be an unwelcomed change that’s also starting to take shape: wrinkles. Wrinkles are faint lines that appear on the face and usually affect people who are 35 and under. We all know aging is inevitable, but many don’t …

Urban Body Blog, Fashion and Beauty, Staff Favourites, urban body laser

You’ve spent hundreds of dollars on the latest skin care products. You religiously exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize. You visit us for Microdermabrasion and Photorejuvenation treatments, and while you experience results, after a few weeks it’s back to breakouts and inflammation. What’s the deal? We see this type of scenario all the time.

The start of a New Year always brings so much hope, excitement, and anticipation. January 1st marks a clean slate when many people resolve to eat healthy, exercise regularly, and accomplish all of those things they’ve always wanted to do. So now that January is almost over, we have to ask: how are those resolutions coming along? If you’re having a hard time staying on track, you’re not alone: only 19% of people who make resolutions actually stick to them two years later. Often it’s because their resolutions are too extreme. For example, cutting out all sugar, alcohol, and carbs …
