With another amazing summer in Vancouver behind us, September is all about renewal and fresh beginnings. So if you’ve been neglecting your skin in favour of summer BBQ’s and patio sessions, then our September Special is here to the (derma) rescue.
With celebrity devotees like Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s little wonder why everyone’s talking about the DermaPen, a revolutionary little tool that kick starts your body’s own natural collagen production. Also referred to as Microneedling, this treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin, tricking the body to build collagen and elastin (which are basically your BFF’s to anti-aging). Besides softening wrinkles, it’s also been proven to lessen the appearance of acne or trauma scars, shrink pores, and fade brown spots.

DermaPen: The New Facial

The old saying that good things come in small packages couldn’t be more true. This little tool offers big results, and has completely disrupted the idea of the traditional facial. If you’re looking for an alternative to laser therapy, Microneedling is the perfect solution for patients with darker skin tones at risk for hyperpigmentation, or those who don’t want to avoid the sunlight for weeks.
Plus you can target much more than just the face. DermaPen treatments can be done anywhere, and are particularly popular for those who suffer from stretch marks or post-natal scarring. Our medical estheticians have treated areas like the legs, chest, or butt, creating a soft, lifted, and smooth appearance in as little as five treatments.

Though a single treatment costs $225, for the month of September we’re offering TWO DermaPen treatments for just $199 when purchasing a package of five!

Summer is fast approaching, which means wedding season is about to begin. For those of you about to say ‘I do’, the last few weeks can be an incredible stressful time as you try to coordinate the venue, catering, visitors, décor, stags, stagettes…the list goes on and on. Often brides and grooms forget to factor in a crucial step in the nuptial process: their skin.

If you haven’t started your skincare prep, don’t worry, there’s still enough time to schedule a few appointments in order to get yourself in photo-ready shape. Here are a few of Urban Body Laser’s must-do’s to saying “I do”.
Laser Hair Removal
Brides often find the last few days leading up to the wedding the most stressful. With so much to do, how nice would it be to know that you didn’t have to shave your underarms, legs, or get a Brazilian wax? There’s a reason more and more people are turning to laser hair removal: it works. Though it takes a series of treatments for hair to be completely gone, often our clients see incredible results after just one or two appointments. If you grow thick hair on your underarms, legs, or pubic area, the hair that grows back is much thinner and sparing after just one treatment. And for fellas, we know your future wife will definitely appreciate our signature Balls-n-All™.

Skin Tightening and Microdermabrasion
Every bride and groom wants flawless, radiant skin on their big day. In order to achieve this, we highly recommend 3 or 4 treatments of skin tightening combined with microdermabrasion. Clean pores are key to ensuring you don’t suffer from blemishes on your wedding day. Microdermabrasion removes clogged pores and cleans the outer layer of the skin. It’s incredibly effective to reduce ingrown hairs, discolored and congested skin, and even fine lines and wrinkles.
To achieve a glowing complexion, try skin tightening. This non-invasive method uses broad band light (BBL) to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It does this by stimulating collagen production, which is the protein that aids in the structural support of the skin and causes it to contract and tighten.
Colorescience Pro
If you buy most of your make-up in a drug store, chances are it is filled with so many chemicals and unnatural ingredients that it’s actually causing more damage to your skin. After receiving microdermabrasion and skin tightening, the last thing you want to do is pollute your epidermis with harmful products.
To enhance your natural beauty, Colorescience make-up is a-must. This luxurious line does more than just camouflage blemishes and discoloration; it actually helps to remedy it. Each product is designed to complement and blend together, allowing you to layer to achieve a flawless complexion. From foundations to lip gloss, this extensive line has plenty of options to match your needs and skin tone. Paired with our Osmosis and Pro-Derm cleansers and moisturizers your skin will be ready to tie the knot.

We’re so excited to talk about one of our favourite products, the Dermal Roller! For a limited time, if you purchase a Dermal Roller you’ll receive a free treatment, valued at $200! So what exactly is it? We’ll explain.
The thought of needles makes many of us start to cringe. From the day we’re born, needles have always been affiliated with pain and illness; something that is forced upon us in order to protect or heal. Even as adults, this fear continues to linger. But what if we told you that there are actually needles that can make you look years younger?

The Dermal Roller is a tool covered with tiny needles which creates very minor (almost microscopic) trauma that last for a short period of time. This process has two major benefits:
1. It effectively stimulates collagen formation, which is the protein responsible for skin elasticity. Therefore, it will lead to smoother skin as it breaks down wrinkles and scarring.
2. Once your skin has been treated, it will easily absorb whatever products you apply afterwards. The light pressure literally creates microscopic holes where ingredients can penetrate, improving the look and feel of skin over time. That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re using the best products possible without harmful toxins or ingredients. Our estheticians can help distinguish which of our skincare products will best suit your skin type.

Dermal Roller and Skin Needling: How Does it Work?

Skin has a natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin, triggering new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
We offer the Dermal Roller in four different varieties: 0.3mm, 0.5mm, and LED vibrating Rollers that come in both red and blue. The red targets anti-aging, while the blue is meant for acne, and the vibration helps to ease the treatment and makes the process more comfortable.
Take advantage of this awesome deal while it lasts! Contact our medical estheticians to find out which one is right for you.

As you get older, your needs start changing. Remember those days when you lived in a dorm and scraped by on minimum wage? Now you’re looking for three bedroom homes and driving a minivan. Our lives change, develop, and require more attention. The same goes for your skin.
No matter how old you are, we’re going to share how you can take care of your skin at every age. No surgery or scalpel required.

Tools, Tips, and Products to Take Care of Your Skin at Every Age

 

20’s
skin at every age

You may think that you only need to worry about your skin as you get older, but taking preventative measures now is the best way to ensure your complexion stays as youthful and smooth as possible.

Skin tends to become a little drier in your twenties, which causes your skin to over produce oils. This could lead to breakouts (thought those days were left in high school??). Also staying hydrated as well as ALWAYS wearing SPF will help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
We recommend:

  • Microdermabrasion to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and leave a smooth texture

30s
skin at every age

Unfortunately you really start developing fine lines and wrinkles in your thirties. This is because collagen and elastin start to break down, and towards the end of the decade, age spots and brown pigmentation may start to appear.

We recommend:

40s
skin at every age

Since your skin also doesn’t rebound as quickly as it did when you were in your 20s and 30s, you might notice skin sagging. Those under eye circles may also turn into pouches.

We recommend:

  • Pep Up Pen from Colorscience, an eye and lip tri-peptide formula that will help increase the appearance of firmness and reduce fine lines and wrinkles while plumping up delicate tissue.
  • Polish Enzyme Firming Mask, a mild exfoliating mask that gives skin a smooth, healthy appearance after each application.
  • Skin Tightening to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

 

50s
skin at every age

Because of menopause, there is less estrogen in the skin which means the lines you developed in your 40s transform into skin folds. Your skin is also more much delicate and fragile from age 50 and above.

We recommend:

  • Flawless Face Photo Rejuvenation Package, a combination of Microdermabrasion, photo rejuvenation, and skin tightening. This trifecta all work together to reverse the aging process and the results are amazing! The Flawless Face package is currently discounted at 40% off! Call us today to learn more and book while this offer lasts.
  • Quench Intense Hydrator is a lightweight moisturizer with maximum hydration designed for mature, dry, and irritated skin

 
We truly believe that age is only a number; how you feel on the inside is all that matters. However, we also know how important it is to take pride in your appearance. Growing older isn’t something to dread, but rather to look forward to, especially if you have your skincare down pat.
