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.

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!

What do you love most about working at Urban Body Laser?
The environment, I’m lucky to work with a great staff and awesome clients!
What’s your favorite Colorescience product and why? 

The Pressed Mineral Foundation. It has the best coverage and feels virtually weightless.

What’s your favorite Osmosis product and why?
Quench. This is a great moisturizer for me because I have super dry skin in winter and oily in summer. Quench provides the perfect balance for both dry and oily like mine.

What’s my favorite treatment and why?

Laser hair removal (light sheer) because its less painful and can get at my lighter hair, and of course in the long run I won’t have to shave ever again!
