What is Body Contouring? CoolSculpting vs Venus Legacy

Posted by Brett Lutz on May 26, 2016 7:38:11 AM


Whether you are looking to eliminate stubborn fat, tighten loose/sagging skin, or reduce cellulite, Sona has the very latest body contouring technologies that offer proven, noticeable results for our clients.

But what exactly is "body contouring"? Body contouring treatments at Sona use the latest FDA-approved technologies to  non-invasively:

  • Reduce stubborn fat
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Smooth the visible appearance of cellulite

At Sona, we utilize CoolSculpting® for fat reduction and Venus Legacy™ for skin tightening and cellulite reduction.­ Both treatment types are non-surgical, non-invasive, and require little to no downtime but use distinctly different methods to get results.


Venus Legacy

Sona uses Venus Legacy for two specific body contouring purposes-tightening loose and sagging skin (common in the aging process, after weight loss or childbirth) and for reducing cellulite (caused by underlying fat deposits that give the skin a dimpled or lumpy appearance).  Venus Legacy is cutting-edge technology that utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields which causes a thermal reaction in the tissue that stimulates the body's natural healing response.  This results in a reduction of cellulite and noticeable tightening of the skin. The treated area can immediately look smoother and firmer. Most areas of the body can be treated, including the face and neck.

CoolSculpting® - Fat Reduction

Sona is a leading national provider of CoolSculpting - the world's number 1 fat reduction treatment. CoolSculpting's unique technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.  Treated fat cells are cystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. With over 2 million treatments performed worldwide, it is safe and effective for removing fat on the abdomen, love handles, flanks, thighs (inner and outer) and now even a double chin.  Once the fat is gone, it's gone for good!  The results are proven, noticeable and lasting.

What is PCOS?

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on May 17, 2016 11:01:18 AM

PCOS.pngMen aren't the only ones that can grow a beard or mustache. Did you know women can too? It's called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome


What is PCOS?

PCOS is a common disorder that takes place when a woman's hormones are out of balance due to insulin producing cells being over responsive and creating too much insulin causing hyperinsulinemia. This increase in insulin causes the ovaries to produce too much testosterone. 1 in 10 American women of childbearing age are affected by PCOS, making it by far the most common hormonal imbalance in women of this age group. Symptoms of PCOS include: infertility, weight gain, acne, and abnormal hair growth. 

Because of an excess of male hormones, women with PCOS can experience unwanted hair growth on the face, chin, and neck. So women have facial hair too! Nothing makes a woman feel more unfeminine than thick, black hair sprouting in unsightly places. And that's why many women with PCOS come to Sona MedSpa


How do women with PCOS manage hair growth?

Shaving, waxing, and plucking is a daily routine to those with this disorder. And laser hair removal has been a saving grace to some. The ability to receive laser hair removal every 6-8 weeks allows women with PCOS to stop the daily routine of shaving and enjoy less time in the bathroom and more time of doing things they want to do! 



"Personally, my hair growth got worse and worse over about 15 years before I started treatment with Sona MedSpa. My hair growth is mostly contained to my chin and neck, and laser hair removal treatments have made it all but disappear. This means no more daily tweezing and shaving!"

- Whitney Thore, Sona Client and star of My Big Fat Fabulous Life on TLC  Instagram: @whitneywaythore


For those with PCOS, depending on how thick and full the hair grows, it is likely that more laser hair removal treatments may be necessary to reach optimal results. And at Sona MedSpa, our Sona Promise allows our clients to continue additional laser hair removal treatments if necessary at a very deep discount, making laser hair removal affordable for everyone. If you or someone you know has PCOS, contact Sona MedSpa. It's time to get rid of embarrassing unwanted hair and gain back time in your day!

Tighten Skin & Reduce Cellulite with Venus Legacy at Sona MedSpa

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Apr 26, 2016 9:23:45 AM

Sona is proud to offer the latest treatment designed to tighten skin and reduce cellulite - Venus Legacy™.   Venus Legacy is a non-invasive treatment with proven results that uses pulsed magnetic fields to create a therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. This thermal reaction under the tissue stimulates the body's natural healing response by increasing blood circulation and causing the skin to contract. This results in a reduction of cellulite and a noticeable tightening of the skin. The treated area will immediately look smoother and firmer. Our clients say the treatment feels like a warm massage which makes the procedure a relaxing and comfortable experience. Plus, there is no downtime associated with Venus Legacy, and our clients can get back to work and daily activities immediately.

Here is what Venus Legacy can do for you on different parts of the body:

Top 5 Questions about Venus Legacy for Skin Tightening

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Apr 18, 2016 2:05:00 PM




Venus Legacy is an exciting and revolutionary skin tightening and body contouring treatment that uses multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields to non-invasively tighten loose skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. 


during_treatment.pngHOW DOES THE TECHNOLOGY WORK?

Venus Legacy utilizes Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, Pulsed Magnetic fields, and a VariPulse™ feature to produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. The Multi-Polar Radio Frequency is used to deliver focused heat to various tissue depths targeting and disabling fat cells while also stimulating the growth of new collagen. Pulsed Magnetic Fields is used to accelerate the healing and rejuvenation process by increasing blood flow and cellular nourishment, which helps in slowing down aging. Finally, the new VariPulse™ is an adjustable pulsed suction feature designed to deliver the combined energies more uniformly to stimulate lymphatic drainage and enhance your comfort throughout the treatment. Combined, these groundbreaking technologies create a dense energy matrix penetrating into multiple tissue depths, giving visible, long-lasting results and increased client satisfaction, all in a pain-free manner.



Venus Legacy treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many clients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage.




To obtain optimal results, Sona recommends a series of 6 treatments for the face or neck, and a series of 8 for other areas of the body. It is not uncommon for our clients to continue to see an improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.



With Venus Legacy, we are able to treat virtually all parts of the body including the face and neck. We can even focus on those fine lines around the eyes. You will enjoy results regardless of skin type and age.

Shaving and waxing can be time consuming and painful chores. But with Laser Hair Removal at Sona MedSpa getting rid of unwanted hair and eliminating razor burn just got easier.

The most commonly treated areas are the legs, face and neck. With as little as three treatments you will experience significant reduction in appearance in the vein, to the point where they are no longer noticeable. The perfect solution to get your skin summer ready! Contact a Sona Skin Consultant today and get up to $300 off your treatment package!

Move from Self-Conscious to Self-Confident with AFT at Sona MedSpa

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Mar 23, 2016 1:15:52 PM



Whether your concern is redness, rosacea, brown spots, or uneven skin tone, Sona MedSpa uses Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) to correct your little imperfections. Schedule your free consultation today and ask our skin consultant how you can save on AFT treatments.



AFT is the next generation of Intense Pulse Light technology. With the Harmony laser system, our treatment providers can utilize multiple hand pieces, with varying wave lengths, to customize a treatment program specific to your pigmentation/coloration concerns. With no needles and no downtime, AFT can safely and effectively rejuvenate your skin. During the treatment, an intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the outer layer of skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the pigmentation/coloration being targeted. The pigmentation/coloration will darken before it flakes off or is absorbed by the body as part of the natural healing process. 



AFT treatments are effective in treating rosacea and redness, sun damage, uneven skin tone, brown spots, and age spots. The AFT energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin, targeting the abnormally pigmented cells, resulting in a more even colored complexion. AFT is also effective in relieving the redness and flushing of the face and chest associated with rosacea, removing benign vascular lesions such as hemangiomas, and reducing the appearance of spider veins and broken capillaries. This high-tech solution allows our providers at Sona MedSpa to treat many areas of the body like arms, back, chest, face, hands, legs, and neck to help you look and feel your best!


See for yourself how AFT can perfect your skin!
