4 Signs You Should Invest in Laser Hair Removal

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Mar 15, 2017 1:49:48 PM

Laser Hair Removal at Sona MedSpa is a safe, comfortable, and affordable alternative solution to other forms of temporary hair removal such as waxing, shaving, or tweezing. For many people, unwanted hair can be such a nuance. Here are four signs you should invest in laser hair removal. 

sonamedspa-01.2017-0051.jpg

1. You spend too much valuable time shaving, waxing, or tweezing

If you have fast-growing thick hair, you may find yourself shaving once, maybe twice a day. It can become time consuming shaving, waxing, and tweezing on a daily basis. This daily chore can keep you from doing what you want to do, like impromptu pool trips or lake days. With laser hair removal, this permanent hair reduction solution does not require the same long-term financial or time investment as buying razors, shaving cream, and wax. At Sona MedSpa, after a series of laser hair removal treatments, you can enjoy smoother skin and spend your valuable time doing things you want to do. 

2. You have sensitive skin

Getting rid of your unwanted hair from shaving, waxing, or tweezing can be painful especially if you have sensitive skin. Many men and women can experience bumps or rashes as a consequence of removing unwanted hair with these temporary hair removal techniques. Laser Hair Removal can help save your skin from irritation allowing you to enjoy soft, comfortable, and healthy looking skin everyday.

3. You are prone to razor burn and ingrown hairs

If you have ever experienced razor burn or ingrown hairs after shaving, waxing or tweezing, you know it is not fun. Razor burn and ingrown hairs can be painful, unsightly, and also change the pigment of your skin and leave scars. If you are ready to be done with all the frustrations of shaving, waxing or tweezing, laser hair removal is your solution. 

4. You are self-conscious about your hair

Unwanted hair can cause major self-image issues. For some women, they have to live with excessive hair growth because of a hormone imbalance from PCOS. There is a solution! Whether you are embarrassed about the hair on your face, arms, fingers, toes, back - pretty much anywhere on your body - the medically trained providers at Sona MedSpa can help you minimize your unwanted hair with Laser Hair Removal. 

If you are ready to experience an easier, cost effective, and more permanent hair reduction solution then Laser Hair Removal is for you! Talk to a Sona Skin Consultant today to learn more about Laser Hair Removal.

5 Facts To Know About Laser Hair Removal - But Never Asked

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Jan 23, 2017 4:02:23 PM


5 Facts To Know About Laser Hair Removal.jpg 

1. Do I have to let my hair grow out before treatment?

No. Unlike waxing, you do not need to grow out your unwanted hair. Shaving is required before your laser hair removal treatment. However, do not wax before any laser hair removal treatment. The objective is for the laser energy to go directly to the root of the hair and shaving allows the laser to locate the pigment of the hair follicle, with the follicle still in place.

 

2. What if I feel modest about the areas I'm treating?

Our medically trained staff are very sensitive to your privacy. A private changing room is in each of our treatment rooms and for your privacy, we provide a robe to wear during treatment. Only the area being treated is exposed. Keep in mind, your laser hair removal is only between you and your provider. 

 

3. What is included in the bikini area?

You can have as much area or as little as you want treated. Only your provider will know your preference. 

 

4. Will anyone notice that I got Laser Hair Removal?

No. But if you have sensitive skin, you may experience some flushing of the skin due to the heat from the laser. If you experience any bumps or flushing of the skin immediately after treatment, our providers will provide cream to calm the irritation. 

 

5. Why isn't the gel heated before being applied to the treated area?

The purpose of the gel used during each laser hair removal treatment is to cool and protect your skin. The gel must be cold to protect your skin from the heat of the laser. Our providers will generously apply the gel throughout your treatment to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

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!

Laser Hair Removal & Skin Tone

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Feb 3, 2016 4:16:40 PM

LHR_for_different_skin_tones.jpg

Laser Hair Removal at Sona MedSpa is a safe and proven treatment to permanently reduce unwanted hair for nearly every part of the body.  A common question asked is- will it work and is it safe for my skin tone?  The short answer is yes- laser hair removal at Sona is safe and effective for virtually any skin color.

The science of laser hair removal is rooted in targeting melanin, also known as pigment, in the hair follicle. Because both hair and skin contain melanin, our clinically-trained staff members carefully evaluate each client before beginning treatment to determine the right course of treatment for their individual needs.  The Fitzpatrick Scale and other best practices are used to determine which settings are needed on the best-in-class Soprano diode laser to provide the optimal results. This allows protection as the energy surpasses the skin and only targets the pigmentation of the hair follicle, ensuring a safe and effective treatment every time.

Why Laser Hair Removal at Sona MedSpa?

In our nearly 2 decades in the industry, Sona MedSpa has performed millions of laser hair removal treatments. Our advanced laser hair removal technology is safe, comfortable and a proven solution for removing hair from virtually any part of your body and keeping it off. With our medically trained staff and expertise, our clients trust us with making them feel beautiful and confident. Plus, with The Sona Promise, a promise you won't find anywhere else, we provide lifetime insurance on your Laser Hair Removal treatment.

Ask An Expert at Sona: Get Rid of Unwanted Hair with Laser Hair Removal

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 22, 2015 8:52:49 AM

Have you ever received Laser Hair Removal? If so, how do you like your results?

Yes and I've had excellent results! I love not having to shave everyday!

 

Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

The best candidate for laser hair removal are those who have dark hair and skin types I-V on the Fitzpatrick scale.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

At Sona MedSpa we use the Sporano XL Diode Laser - the gold standard for hair removal technology. The light of the laser beam is transformed into heat when it comes in contact with the hair. Then the laser seeks out the melanin found in the fair follicle. This heat works from the inside out, damaging the follicle and surrounding cells and inhibiting further growth.

 

When should you begin to see results?

After each treatment you will begin seeing your hair grow back lighter and finer. You will see a signifcant improvement in the reduction of your hair growth usually after your third treatment through the completion of your treatment package.

 

Why would you recommend Laser Hair Removal?

I recommend Laser Hair Removal because it is convenient and your skin will look and feel smoother. It saves both time and money from having to shave daily and purchasing expensive razors. Laser hair removal also helps with ingrown hairs and razor burn. It gives you more confidence in yourself when you don’t have to worry about unsightly hairs.

 

What was one of the most rewarding client transformations you’ve seen?

I had a female client that had an abundance of facial and chest hair. She was teased by her family that she was more like a man. When she completed her package, she was happy with her results and her family could not believe her transformation.

 

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love working at Sona MedSpa becasue I get to see on a daily basis the transformations our services provide. At the end of the day, our clients feel good about themselves and I love forming lasting relationships with each and every one of them.

5 Frequently Asked Questions - Laser Hair Removal

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 5, 2015 1:56:51 PM

 

 

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

Laser Hair Removal is a safe and highly effective treatment for nearly every part of the face or body for both men and women. Sona’s state-of-the-art Laser Hair Removal technology is FDA approved and only performed by our medically trained staff which ensures maximum efficacy and safety, as well as beautiful, long-lasting results.

 

HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL TAKE?

Laser Hair Removal treatments are relatively quick. Depending on the area being treated, treatments can last 10 to 45 minutes. Several treatments are needed (usually 5+) to remove hair from desired areas. Treatments are performed every 6 - 10 weeks.

 

 

DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK FOR EVERYONE?

Most people are good candidates for laser hair removal. To find out if you are, contact a Sona expert for a fast, free consultation over the phone. Laser Hair Removal can remove hair virtually anywhere, from small areas like the upper lip and chin, to larger areas like back, chest, and legs. If you're looking to end the daily chore of shaving, Laser Hair Removal is your solution! 

 

 

 IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?

Many clients feel little to no discomfort. It can vary by personal tolerance and by number of treatments. After multiple treatments, discomfort levels can decrease. A Laser Hair Removal treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. For those with lower pain tolerance, we offer numbing cream that can be applied before treatments.

 

 

ARE LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS PERMANENT?

Laser Hair Removal is approved by FDA for “permanent hair reduction" because, due to hormonal changes in our bodies (pregnancy, for example), new hair growth may occur. That's why at Sona we offer the Sona Promise. The Sona Promise is a promise you won't find anywhere else, that provides lifetime insurance on your Laser Hair Removal investment.

Ask The Expert: 7 Questions with Casey Dark, Senior Skin Consultant

Posted by Brett Lutz on Mar 19, 2015 12:23:00 PM

 

Here at Sona MedSpa, the focus of our entire team is ensuring that our clients achieve the best possible results and have an outstanding customer experience.  Our Skin Consultants play an important role in making this happen by creating a personalized solution for each client's needs.  They are experts in Laser Hair Removal, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, and Body Contouring  and through their experience and knowledge, they are able to recommend the treatment plan best suited to address individual concerns.Casey  We recently spent a few minutes with Casey Dark, a Senior Skin Consultant and Aesthetician at our Cary, NC center, to get a personal point of view.
  

 "I help make our clients feel at ease with education and compassion" - Casey Dark

 

How do you introduce clients to the range of Sona’s services?

I listen… because we have something for everyone! Once I hear their concerns I know which direction to take.

How do clients maintain their results? 

SkinMedica products, Chemical Peels and/or maintenance treatments from time to time help maintain results. But of course, sun block and staying hydrated is key to keeping your skin looking fresh and youthful.

Can you tell us about your professional background and how you landed at Sona?

I decided I wanted to pursue a career in aesthetics so I went to school and got my license.  I intentionally sought out Sona based on my research of a reputable company to work with.  I have held several positions at the company which I believe gives me unique perspective on how we can best serve our clients at Sona.

What would you say makes Sona MedSpa different from other med spas?

The results and the focus on client satisfaction and the understanding that those two things go hand-in-hand.

What concerns do clients normally have before their first treatment and how do you make them feel comfortable?

This really goes back to the first question/answer- I show compassion for the way they are feeling and then focus on the education to help provide a level of comfort to ease their nerves and help them understand how it WILL work.

Can you talk about a rewarding client transformation that you have seen?

There are so many!  In fact, I have seen more than one client in tears of joy with the outcome of their services, whether it be from our Laser 360 package, or a man who is no longer embarrassed taking his kids to the pool and taking his shirt off (he had laser hair removal on his entire back), or a woman who sent us her wedding picture in her strapless dress with very kind words about what our AFT treatments did for her on her big day.  There are truly so many stories like this and it’s why I love my job here.  We genuinely help people feel better about themselves and it’s very rewarding.

Do Sona clients recommend us to their friends? 

Yes, even if unintentionally.  I often say that “referrals” come very easy because our clients find themselves talking about how excited they are about their services and results and anyone who is listening is going to want to be a part of what we have to offer.
