Sona MedSpa is pleased to announce that CoolSculpting is now available at most locations.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared fat freezing procedure that contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime. A Sona Consultant will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your body, your budget, and your goals.  During treatment, the CoolSculpting device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During this procedure, you can read, check e-mail, surf the web, or even take a nap! CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical procedure that allows you to return to normal activities immediately. In the weeks and months after your procedure, your body will naturally process and eliminate the treated fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!

How Does it Work?


Undeniable Results

The results from some diets and fat reduction treatments may leave you swinging back and forth between "before" and "after" versions of yourself. But the CoolSculpting procedure is non-surgical, safe, effective, and best of all, the results are long-term. Over 1 million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide.

A Personal Sona Story: I Love My Skin Rejuvenation Results from AFT!

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on May 20, 2015 9:43:00 AM


Meet René - Marketing Director at Sona MedSpa.  As a child she spent a lot of time in the sun and thought her freckles were cute. As she got older, those cute freckles turned into blotchy brown patches on her cheeks and forehead. The sun damage really started to accumulate and become more noticeable. It made her feel self conscious and she never went out without makeup on because her skin tone was so uneven. When René joined Sona MedSpa in 2011 she was introduced to a non-surgical procedure that would change her skin - AFT.

What is AFT?

Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation solution that uses an intense light to treat redness, sun damage, uneven skin tone, brown spots, and age spots. The light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the outer layer of the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the pigmentation/coloration being treated. During and after the procedure, the pigmentation/coloration will darken before it flakes off or is absorbed by the body as part of the healing process. Treatments are performed approximately every 4 weeks. Last year over 1,000 Sona MedSpa Clients purchased an AFT treatment package. 

Here's a visual timeline of René's treatment from start to finish:

Rene's Before Pictures

During the Treatment


How would you describe the procedure and how it feels?

René: During the treatment, you feel a sensation of heat as the energy is delivered to different areas of your face. There’s also a flash of light each time the laser is triggered. The heat is a little more intense in the areas that are heavily pigmented. The nurse even went over some of the more darkly pigmented areas with a special template to customize the treatment to my specific trouble spots. After the treatment, your face feels warm, like being sunburned.

During the healing process, what happens to your skin?

René: Immediately after the treatment, you see “crusting” where the pigment has been pulled to the surface. This looks like really dark freckles, but you can wear make up the next day and that helps minimize the effects of the treatment. These dark patches heal over the next two weeks and gradually flake off. It’s important to let this happen naturally and not try to rush the process.

After seeing your results, do you think the treatment was worth it? Why?

René: The treatment was absolutely worth it! When I look back at my before pictures, I can’t believe the difference in my skin. I wear a lot less makeup now and most weekends skip it entirely. My skin doesn’t look splotchy anymore, just beautiful even skin tone! 


Like René, you too can have confidence that Sona's advanced technology in the hands of our medically licensed providers will provide results that you will love! Say bye, bye to skin imperfections and hello to youthful looking skin!
