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

and I think I like it…..

I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me....
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 went on air.  But, I always thought they were talking to someone else.
Then, recently, I started noticing the effects my love for the sun has had on my skin.  I had so many crazy suburns on my face, one so bad I had to be hospitalized.  And it realized that my careless ways with the sun were catching up with me.
When I heard the Urban Body Laser ads about Photorejuvenation I started to pay attention.  The idea that maybe some of the spotting and redness on my face can be removed with light therapy began to appeal to me.
So I talked to my friend Janiece at Urban Body Laser.   I had my first photorejuvenation and skin tightening treatment just before the holidays.  I was a little freaked out.  ( The picture is of me, just before I had my first treatment )  I was afraid it would hurt like crazy ( it hurt a tiny bit ).   I was afraid there might be scarring ( there was none – in fact, Janiece made me look better when I left than I did when I walked in thanks to the Colorscience  mineral make up she hooked me up with ). Mostly, I felt refreshed and relaxed and like I’d been pampered.
The treatment comes with a excellent skin care line for use after to help nourish and protect the skin.  I love it.
I didn’t really notice a difference, but my friends did.  I have already started getting compliments on how great my skin looks.  After one treatment.  Crazy.
Next step, microdermabrasion.  It’s happening soon.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
We’ll be posting the before and after pics of me after I’ve had all the treatments.  But from what I’ve experienced so far.  It’s working.

Have you noticed that your skin has become incredibly dry in the past few weeks? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Cooler temperatures always affect the moisture of your skin, especially on your face, hands, and feet. As a result, cracking, flaking, and redness are all side effects as winter weather sweeps in.

It also doesn’t help that as the temperature drops outside, we’re turning up the heat inside, which also causes the skin to dry out. Thankfully, the Urban Body Laser team has assembled their Winter Survival Kit so ensure your skin receives the tender loving care it deserves. Check out our top picks:
Hydrogel
We recommend using this in the morning and evening to regenerate the skin’s protective film, or any time after bathing, showering or shaving.
Immerse
This helps calm and soothe very dry skin with powerful antioxidant oils from blueberry, red raspberry, and calendula along with barrier-restoring natural lipids. Our manager, Janiece, swears by it! In fact, she loves applying this to her hands and lips before bed.
Quench Plus – Hydrating Plumper

winter skin care tips

This anti-aging hydrator is perfect for under your mineral makeup to leave you with not only a photo finish but also a silky feel. Can be used upon waking and/or before bed.
Pep Up Gel
Give your skin a jumpstart every morning with this amplified Anti-Aging Serum. It’s formulated with a 10-peptide blend to specifically target aging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. This radiance-boosting formula with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid makes your skin look and feel younger. Light-reflecting pigments diminish imperfections, improve the appearance of redness, and brighten sallow tones.
Regenerating Cream
Pro-Derm Regenerating Cream has been formulated to moisturize, regenerate, and soothe sensitive skin while also protecting against the harsh winter elements.
Hydrating Herbal Mask

Use this 1-2x a week to restore moisture. This herbal blended mask saturates skin with rehydrating ingredients to immediately provide moisture and nourishment.
Liftense
This has one of the highest peptide concentrations available, enriched with first grade ingredients especially selected for skin restoration, protection, moisturizing and lifting. Plus it’s renown for its anti-aging compounds as well, helping your skin hydrate while also fighting the signs of aging (win win!).
With this dream team in your corner, you won’t have to suffer from another season of chapped lips and cracked hands. Best of all, these are available at our clinic or on our online store! Though all of these products can be used on any age or skin type, there may be some that are better suited for you than others. If you need help deciphering which ones are best for you, contact our team any time, we’re more than happy to help.

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
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.
