Too Much Sun Time this Summer? Sona has a Bright Solution.

Posted by Brett Lutz on Aug 19, 2014 10:54:00 AM


It’s that bittersweet time of the year when we prepare to leave the summer behind and routines change as kids head back to school.

Is your skin showing the effects of too much sun time?  As much as we love the warmth of the sun, prolonged exposure causes the majority of the damaging wrinkles and age spots on our faces. Continual exposure to UV (ultraviolet) rays begins the process of breaking down the skin’s elastin, which causes sagging, stretching and ultimately the premature process of aging. Sun damage comes in many different forms such as:

  • Freckles
  • Brown patches and brown spots
  • Melasma

At Sona MedSpa, we can help fight the effects of sun damage by treating it below the surface of the skin. Our technology diminishes the appearance of these persistent imperfections.

You don’t have to deal with the appearance and effects of sun damage forever. If you are tired of covering up your freckles, brown spots and uneven pigmentation then there is a solution. You can save money on cover-up cosmetics, bleacing creams, etc. and begin to look and feel younger and confident in your own skin.





Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) is the next generation of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology for sun damage treatment, and it’s here at Sona MedSpa. Harmony AFT technology by Alma Lasers is used to pinpoint freckles and brown spots. The number of treatments required for each individual depends on the amount of sun damage, and the area being treated. Clients can expect to see majority of the spots and freckles begin to fade at the end of the series of treatments. There is no down-time, and clients can expect to see their desired results once the treatment package is complete.

The amount of treatments varies from client to client depending on the total amount of damage and the area you would like to have treated.

It is important that you help protect your investment. Sona offers medical grade skin care products to compliment your laser skin treatments and to protect your skin.You can speak with your skin care consultant in order to find out which products are right for you. The maintenance of your results is just as important as the treatment itself.

For your issues with sun damage and age spots, you can depend on our Sona MedSpa professionals to provide the treatment and the technology just right for your needs, addressing the full range of solutions for many areas of your body to help you look and feel your best.

Laser Hair Removal - Does The Technology Really Matter?

Posted by Brett Lutz on Aug 11, 2014 3:36:00 PM

Being an informed consumer is more important than ever in an age of over promising and under delivering. But, let’s be serious, how often do you research lasers? When choosing the company to provide your laser hair removal services, it’s important to understand that there are real differences and the laser you’re being treated with really does matter.

Here’s a quick overview of how laser hair removal works:

Laser hair removal technology is the use of an invisible beam of light and a constant source of heat that enter the hair follicle, disabling and then destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin.  Different laser technologies exist to accomplish the same goal of removing hair.  This begs the question - what is the difference in the technology that is used?

A recent, independent study stated[1] that diode lasers are the “gold standard to remove unwanted hair.”  The study also revealed that the Soprano® diode laser eliminated 90% of hair after 5 treatments while others in the study eliminated only 74% to 85% of hair.  The study also showed that these diode lasers caused significantly less discomfort and long-term adverse effects than other lasers such as Alexandrite and YAG.  Sona MedSpa exclusively employs Soprano® diode lasers through our partnership with Alma Lasers™ for laser hair removal.  We believe, through our experience and research, that diode lasers give our clients the ultimate combination of effectiveness and safety.  

Like many technologies, laser hair removal is consistently advancing and improving in quality. Although the technologies can seem very similar, there are real differences in the effectiveness, comfort level, and safety of the lasers used to remove hair.  Make sure you’re getting the best technology and the most effective treatment – ask what laser will be used for your treatments
