Goodbye rain boots, hello flip flops. Summer in the city is about to take off, and that means you’ll be spending the next few months lounging at Kits Beach, hiking in our backcountry, and kicking back on your favourite patio. And while we love this time of year just as much as the next Vancouverite, it’s also a time when we can’t stress enough to our clients to be prepared for what the season has ahead. In other words, have a summer skin care game plan.
We’ve all heard that the sun causes premature aging in the form of wrinkles and fine lines. And while you may think you have plenty of years left before damage can show, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Liver spots, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles can show up almost immediately after an intense season of sunshine. In fact, we’ve treated patients in their early 20s who are trying to reverse the visible damage.

Sound familiar? Then let us introduce you to BBL Photorejuvenation

This method is an incredibly easy and virtually pain-free. It uses light to repair and revive your skin in an effective, non-invasive, and proven way. These BBL treatments can be even done over your lunch hour! The procedure usually requires four to five treatments, about four weeks apart in order for results to be the most dramatic. An individual treatment takes about 15 minutes, and you can resume your everyday activities immediately after the treatment.
In addition, Photorejuvenation can help you get bikini-ready without having to worry about stretch marks while you’re baring it at the beach. Just check out this before and after:

While it’s always good to know you have a safe way to treat these skin conditions, it shouldn’t be your only method of treatment. It starts with prevention, and using the right products will help you achieve this. One of our new faves is the Tin Du Soleil, a brand new addition to Colorescience. Available in four different shades, this product is an all-physical sun protection with SPF 30 with an antioxidant-rich formula that protects the skin while also giving it sheer foundation coverage.

Urban Body Laser’s Best Before and After’s

There’s nothing we love more than a good ‘Best before and after’s’ story, especially when we’re in charge! At Urban Body Laser in Vancouver, our trusted medical estheticians work day in and day out helping people change, correct, and revamp the way they look and feel about themselves. From pigmentation to acne scars, there’s nothing better than seeing the look on someone’s face when you’ve removed something that was causing them embarrassment, insecurity, or even shame.
If you’ve been following us on Instagram, then you may have caught a few of our favourite before and after shots of recent clients. In case you missed it, here are just a few of the best Urban Body Laser makeovers of 2015!
Best Before and after's
Rachel came to us this past fall after suffering from extensive sun damage. The sun’s rays are amongst the most harmful contributors to aging, leaving sunspots and fine lines on the skin, as evident on her chest. FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ is one of our most effective methods to reduce this damage, just check out Rachel’s results after just three treatments! Because you can’t be exposed to the sun after receiving FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™, fall and winter are the best times to get started.

We all suffer from the occasional pimple, but before you start layering on concealer, please check the ingredients. Most conventional make-up you find at the drugstore is filled with chemicals, fragrances, and toxins that clog your pores and aggravate the skin, often causing more breakouts. Pictured above is a client who contacted us for a Colorescience application, a luxury make-up line that uses natural ingredients that not only covers those pesky pimples, but also nourishes the skin. Interested? Call us to book in a free skin analysis!

Do you suffer from skin discoloration from birthmarks or scars? Photorejuvenation may be the answer you’re looking for. We use Sciton’s BBL, a safe and effective system that specializes in darker skin tones. After just one treatment, our client’s knee is looking shades lighter! We’ll be sure to update you once she’s finished her program.
best before and after's
Did you know that laser hair removal for your underarms not only reduces the hair, but also decreases sweat? We call that a #winwin. If you find your light shirts discolor from sweating, or the constant shaving has caused thick hair you can’t seem to rid of, ask our medical estheticians for a custom laser hair removal program.

Only moms understand how frustrating it can be to finally reach your pre-pregnancy weight, yet still have a hard time buttoning up your jeans because of the loose skin caused from pregnancy. Even after months of diet and exercise, it continues to sit around your abdomen. For many women, this can cause insecurity and embarrassment when having to wear a bikini or tight-fitting clothing.
post-pregnancy skin tightening
There are hundreds of articles that recommend everything from exfoliation to miracle creams that claim to magically firm up your midsection. Unfortunately, the only result you’ll see from these is an emptier wallet and further frustration.
The fact is that even after strict dieting and exercise, the loose skin around the tummy may never firm up. This is the exact scenario our client was experiencing when she came and visited us last year. After two kids and hard work in the gym she just couldn’t get rid of stubborn skin surrounding her abdomen.
When we meet clients like this, we offer our post pregnancy Skin Tightening services to effectively tighten the problem area. We use Broad Band Light (BBL), which is a mix of both infrared and visible light that penetrates the epidermis. BBL stimulates changes at the molecular level to bring visible changes to the dermis (the visible layer of skin).
To increase elasticity and firmness, the gene expressions in damaged skin cells caused by pregnancy are changed to resemble the genes in younger skin cells. With regular treatments, cells are reinvigorated over time. Just check out our client’s results!

post-pregnancy skin tightening

Loose skin is a common side effect of pregnancy, but thankfully there are treatments we offer at Urban Body Laser that can get you back to your regular self after just a few treatments.
