Feeling young is one thing, but looking it is quite another. So what if we told you there was a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you looking forever young.

BBL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment using intense light therapy. How it works is that infrared and visible light penetrates deep within the dermis and epidermis, stimulating and increasing the lifespan of aging genes. This light actually restructures the molecules, turning your gene expression from aging and damaged to youthful and rejuvenated. After just a few treatments, it reverses the signs of aging as skin becomes much younger, with visible improvements to pigmentation, elasticity, and texture.

It’s Time to Rejuvenate with BBL Photorejuvenation

Stanford University recently released a study that found BBL treatments can restore gene expression pattern of aging skin to resemble young skin. They found that over 1,000 gene expressions became “rejuvenated” with decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition, leading to improvements in fine wrinkles and pigmentation.

At Urban Body Laser, we’re always looking for the most effective ways to make our clients look and feel their best. Keeping on top of the latest trends and technological advancements in skin care is apart of our job, but we will only offer products and services that we truly feel confident with using on ourselves. That’s why we’ve offered BBL Photorejuvenation services for over five years, as we’ve seen first hand how effective the results can be.

Are you ready to try this anti-aging solution? Because we’re so confident in this technology, we’re giving you 50% off your first BBL Photorejuvenation treatment! Contact our medical estheticians and they’ll be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Finding that perfect present is a daunting task, especially if you’re shopping for someone that literally has everything. Clothes and jewelry may seem like an easy way out, but knowing the right size, fit, brand, and colour can be full of second guessing and stress.

January is also a great time for them to start laser hair removal treatments. Since it takes a few appointments to remove stages of hair growth, they’ll be smooth and silky by the time summer comes along.

The holiday season can seem like a blur. One second you’re decorating the tree, then the next you’re ringing in the New Year. During the whirlwind of parties, dinners, shopping, and family events, taking a moment to reflect on all you have to be thankful for may be the furthest thing from your mind.

As we’re now in the midst of December, we asked the Urban Body Laser team to put together a list of things they are truly grateful for. From work to family, even the littlest things are a reminder that so many people out there have much less than we do. We hope this will inspire you to put together your own gratitude list!

You know those things you always vowed to try, then for some reason keep putting it off?

Chances are you have heard our radio ads, seen commercials on television, or read about it in the magazines. We’re talking about laser hair removal, our most popular treatment that we offer. So what exactly makes it so great?
Plenty. On average, Laser Hair Removal permanently reduces between 70% up to 95% of your initial hair growth. The hair that does grow back is thinner, lighter, and much less visible than before. Plus unlike waxing, you can shave in between treatments.
Without fail, the first thing anyone says after trying laser hair removal is, “I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner!”.

But don’t take our word for it. Just see what our clients have to say:
“… hair initially was medium to thick covering most of my back, after four treatments now most of my back is hairless with a few tiny baby hairs. Janiece and Adranna were extremely friendly and had complimentary TLC (tender loving care).”
“Never having to worry about booking waxing appointments before vacations is a huge time saver.  I’d much rather treat myself to a pedicure or a hair cut before leaving town.”

“From the moment I arrived for my consultation I was greeted warmly, offered tea and was put at ease. The procedure itself was slightly uncomfortable because it was my first time. The woman who was doing the procedure was fabulous and really made me relax. I had a lovely experience and will definitely return.”

Stop Procrastinating and Start Laser Hair Removal!

We have four systems that treat areas like underarms, face, bikini line, legs, even balls-n-all. All of our machines are of the latest technology and are customized based on your needs. Our medical estheticians give you a free consultation and match you with the machine that suits your skin and hair tone.

The Fall and Winter seasons are actually the prime time to get started, as three of our machines require that you have zero sun exposure for one month. Plus because hair grows in different cycles, it takes at least a couple of treatments for maximum results.
If you’re ready to throw on your bikini or bare it all without a second thought of shaving, then laser hair removal is the right decision. As a bonus incentive, for a limited time you can try us out and receive 50% your first treatment!
This special offer won’t last long, so pick up the phone or email us to book your consultation. Stop the procrastinating and get ready for a hairless future with Urban Body Laser.

You know that feeling after you’ve done a good deed?
Whether it’s paying someone a compliment, helping out with a favour, or donating to a charity, there’s nothing quite like giving back to those in need.  If you follow Urban Body Laser on Twitter and Facebook, you may have noticed that we care a lot about helping out others through fundraisers, events, and donations. We think giving back is the key to living a healthy, happy, and wholesome life.
That’s why we weren’t surprised when one our medical estheticians, Channa, chopped off her long, luscious locks and donated them to The Box Cancer Society

That’s not the only charitable deed our staff is apart of. You may have heard that they’ve stripped down to raise funds for the 2013/2014 Urban Body Laser Charity Calendars.

The Urban Body Laser: In the Buff!

All proceeds go to an incredible organization: Look Good Feel Better, a non-government funded charity that helps women who are going through or have gone through chemotherapy treatments to ‘look good and feel better’. This is Canada’s only charity dedicated to empowering women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatments have on their appearance.
There are still some calendars available! The Urban Body Laser calendar girls can be all yours for just $20 each, with 100% of the proceeds are going towards the LGFB workshops. If you are unable make it into our office we will gladly mail them to you, just contact us by email or phone.
What good deed have you done lately? Tweet us, we’d love to hear it!

A lot of great things come in four. There are four seasons, four suits of cards, and of course some pretty famous bands, like Queen, Abba, The Beatles, and KISS, just to name a few.
While these are all great examples of foursomes, to us they don’t quite compare with our favourite quartet: the Colorescience Core 4.

This simple four-step regimen of pure mineral products work together to treat, camouflage, cover and protect your complexion. The best part is that they’re easy to use, infused with vitamins and antioxidants, and match a variety of skin tones. In less than two minutes, you have flawless coverage and perfect texture to tackle your day.

Here’s How to Use the Colorescience Core 4

So easy, so effective. Here’s why you really can’t beat this foursome:

Step 1: Prep and Prime

Before an artist can pick up a paintbrush, they have to begin with a blank canvas. The same theory applies to the first step in the Colorscience Core 4.
The Skin Brightening Face Primer with SPF 20 enhances tone, improves texture, and hides fine lines and wrinkles.
Apply 1 to 2 pumps to moisturize, then blend all over face.

Step 2: Protect and Shield

Now you’re Primed and ready for the Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Powder Brush. Sun protection is vital for keeping your skin youthful, which is what makes this such an important step.
Just sweep over your face to release the powder using small circular strokes. You don’t have to be shy with this one; apply liberally every two hours to ensure protection from harmful UV rays.

Step 3: Color and Correct
Unlike other products you may have used, the Mineral Foundation with SPF 20 is actually designed to blend and layer. Disguise imperfections, even skin tone, and enhance your features with this lightweight foundation.
We love that it’s water-resistant (important for us Vancouver gals who are always fighting the rain!) and has built-in sun protection. Like the Loose Mineral Foundation in Step 2, the brush format makes this a portable quick fix we can easily store in our purse.
Here’s an Urban Body staff tip: Draw small circles in areas that need more coverage and long brush strokes for areas that need more moisture.
Step 4: Set and Mist

Now the final step — just a few spritzes and you’re done! The Sunforgettable Setting Mist  not only sets your make-up in place, but it hydrates and revitalizes your complexion throughout the day.
Hold 6 to 9 inches away and mist three to four times.

Voila! Perfect, flawless skin that only took a few minutes. The entire collection fits easily into your purse so you can re-touch anywhere, any time.
Because we love the Colorscience Core 4 so much, we want to ensure everyone has it, which is why you can purchase the entire set at a 25% discount! But hurry, this is only until the end of September, so come visit us in-store or order online and put your Core 4 to work!

Chances are you’ve known someone who has been affected by cancer. Those from the outside looking in tend to forget about the emotional toll losing your hair, weight loss, and other physical consequences this disease causes. It’s only natural to want to look our best, yet thousands of women have had their self-confidence stripped away because they have been diagnosed with cancer.
That’s why Urban Body Laser wants to help empower women who have been left feeling helpless by their disease, and now you can too. You may have heard about our charity calendars that feature our beautiful staff, and this year they’ve bared it all in A Year of Transcendence to raise money for this important cause.
Twelve months of our stunning pin-up girls is now available for sale! For only $20, you can make a big difference in helping these women regain their confidence. Every cent from these calendars will go towards the Look Good Feel Better organization, Canada’s only cancer charity dedicated to helping women manage the ramifications cancer and its treatment has on their appearance and morale.
