Top 7 Questions about CoolSculpting®

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jul 29, 2015 5:24:44 PM


1. Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

CoolSculpting really does work! CoolSculpting is a permanent solution for fat reduction for the ideal candidate who maintains a healthy lifestyle including proper diet and exercise. 

2. Is the Treatment Painful?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, meaning there is no surgery, no needles, and no extended recovery time. During the procedure, which is performed by a trained Sona MedSpa CoolSculpting Technician, our clients can nap, read, work, or just relax. 

3. How Long Before You Can See Results?

For some clients, you can see results in as little as three weeks, and will experience more dramatic results after two months. But your body will naturally flush out fat cells and will continue to do so after four to six months after treatment.

4. Are There Side Effects?

CoolSculpting at Sona MedSpa are only performed by our medically trained providers, who have received CoolSculpting training from Zeltiq. Our staff will not perform the procedure unless you are healthy and an appropriate candidate. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone.  You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.  The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity.

5. Will I Need More Than One Treatment?

Some clients will be happy with their results after just one treatment, but it is often necessary for clients to have two, three, four or more treatments to reach their ultimate goal. 

6. What Happens if I Gain Weight in the Future?

Many people, after seeing their results from CoolSculpting, typically take better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, new fat cells will form and you may gain weight fat evenly all over the body, not just in the treated areas. We recommend to continue to eat healthy and exercise regularly to maintain your results.

7. How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals.  CoolSculpting is not a “one size fits all” treatment so pricing can and should only be provided after your complimentary in-person consultation.

Which is right for me? Botox vs. Filler at Sona MedSpa

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jul 27, 2015 9:51:37 AM


If you are fighting against fine lines and wrinkles that are prematurely aging your appearance, there are many options that can give you a youthful boost. But what is best for you - Botox® Cosmetic or dermal fillers like Juvederm? Often a combination of Botox and filler is needed to achieve the best results because these products can work in conjunction to address different issues.

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most familiar ways of smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles by causing facial muscles to relax temporarily. Here at Sona, we are among the top 1% of providers of Botox in the country (meaning we perform a lot of Botox) and we see that Botox can be an excellent solution for many clients. For instance, someone in their late 20's and 30's might choose Botox to help prevent wrinkles and enhance their complexion. Older clients may opt for Botox to soften existing lines and prevent new ones from forming.

Like Botox, dermal fillers are an injectable treatment used to tackle some of the most frustrating signs of aging. Unlike Botox, fillers do not relax facial muscles. Instead, fillers work to fill "creases" and "plump" the skin. This allows a more youthful looking appearance by replacing lost tissue volume with filler in addition to filling folds and wrinkles. Sona offers popular fillers such as Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma™ XC, and Radiesse.

The 5 W's of CoolSculpting® at Sona MedSpa

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jul 7, 2015 8:55:44 AM


WHO is CoolSculpting for?

The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.  Good candidates have noticeable bulges in the abs, flanks, back or thighs.

WHAT is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas using a patented cooling technology. It is a safe procedure, cleared by the FDA, that applies targeted cooling to unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. This reduces bulges in treated ares of the body without harming surrounding tissue. 

WHERE on my body can I get CoolSculpting?

You can reduce fat with CoolSculpting on multiple areas of your body such as, abs, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs. Additional sessions will help further enhance your results. A Sona Skin Consultant will help you create a personalized plan tailored just for you!

WHY should I get CoolSculpting?

    • CoolSculpting is safe - This procedure, like all our other services, is performed by our medically trained staff, under the oversight of our Medical Directors. During the procedure, clients can generally sit or lie comfortably and read, work on their laptop or even take a nap during the procedure.
    • CoolSculpting is convenient - Procedures last about one to two hours depending on the areas treated. There is no downtime following treatment, so it can easily be performed without major disruption to your daily routine.
    • The results are undeniable - Clients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with full results occurring over a period of two to four months in most clients.

WHEN should I start CoolSculpting?

Inside Look Part 3: Body Contouring at Sona MedSpa

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jun 16, 2015 4:58:00 PM

Body Contouring at Sona MedSpa is the perfect way to target problem areas of loose skin, excess fat, and cellulite.  Sona treats loose skin and minimizes the appearance of fat and cellulite with the skin tightening and body contouring device Accent XL. The Accent XL works by using radio frequency thermotherapy, gradually heating skin tissues to tighten and re-contour both above and below the skin. The Accent XL works on most areas of the body, including face and neck, which many body contouring technologies are unable to treat.  In part three of our four part video series (you can also view Part 1 and Part 2), join us as we step into an Accent treatment at Sona MedSpa.

Product of the Month: SkinMedica Sunscreen

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jun 2, 2015 8:50:00 AM

Premature aging of the skin is most commonly caused by the sun. And while we can minimize the appearance of sun damage with makeup, laser treatment, or other aesthetic procedures, it's still important to wear sunscreen every single day.

But what kind of sunscreen? At Sona MedSpa we recommend and offer SkinMedica's Daily Physical Defense SPF 30+ Sunscreen and Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ with UV Pro-Plex. Product selection may vary by location. skinmedicasun-1

There are big differences between other sunscreens and SkinMedica's Sunscreens. Most sunscreens have chemical agents that sink into the skin absorbing harmful rays. Where as, SkinMedica's Daily Physical Defense 30+ Sunscreen is an all mineral physical sunscreen that sits on top of the skin acting as a physical block and actually reflects the sun's harmful rays instead of absorbing them. SkinMedica's sunscreen does this with the proprietary blend of Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. They also added Green Tea Leaf Extract and Caffeine to provide powerful antioxidant protection. This unique formula gives you broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection without the heavy white coating you're used to seeing with other sunscreens.

SkinMedica's Sunscreens are recommended to everyone, especially those with sensitive skin and those who recently had a peel, laser treatment, or other aesthetic procedures because it's so gentle. This sunscreen is also recommended to those who have allergic reactions to chemical sunscreens and tend to be acne prone.

But we aren't the only one recommending SkinMedica's Sunscreens...
