Laser Hair Removal The most permanent way to take hair out of the picture.
Laser hair removal is the answer.
Sona MedSpa is pleased to offer the revolutionary hair removal technology that solves the age-old problem of how to most effectively control and eliminate unwanted body hair.
During our hair removal process, a beam of light is passed gently over the skin, disabling many of the hair follicles in the areas being treated. Sona’s state-of-the-art technology, administered by our trained and medically supervised staff, ensures maximum efficacy and safety, as well as beautiful, long-lasting results. And with The Sona Promise, you can expect satisfaction at every step.
With laser hair removal, permanent hair reduction occurs at each treatment, and generally five or more treatments are needed for optimal results.
There are many reasons why this is a preferred solution to conventional methods, among them:
- It does not cause the irritation that other hair removal methods can.
- Larger areas may be treated quickly and together, unlike electrolysis, waxing or tweezing.
- It is effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, hair-free skin is desired.
How does it work?
The science of laser hair removal is rooted in targeting melanin, also called pigment. This is the substance that provides the natural color of skin, hair and iris of the eye. During the laser hair removal process, Sona targets the melanin in hair follicles to deactivate them and inhibit further growth, while preventing the overheating of skin and surrounding tissues.
01 / CoolingA laser gel is applied to act as a protective barrier. The tip of the laser cools and numbs the skin.
02 / HeatingThe light of the laser beam is transformed into heat when it comes in contact with the hair.
03 / TargetingThe laser seeks out the melanin found in the hair follicle.
04 / RemovingThis heat works from the inside out, damaging the follicle and surrounding cells and inhibiting further growth.
Proven results and satisfied clients.
Laser hair removal is a safe and highly effective treatment for nearly every part of the face or body. Backed by science, laser hair removal has helped millions of women and men find the confidence that comes with a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair growth.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Shaving
Shaving is the most common method of hair removal. But once hair is shaved, it typically grows back in a matter of days, and can result in cuts, ingrown hairs, razor burn and razor rash, and missed stubble. Shaving also gets expensive over time due to the number of products purchased to ensure a safe experience.
Laser hair removal is a smart alternative. Because this treatment gets down to the root of the hair follicle, the need for daily or weekly repeat treatments with alternative hair removal methods disappears. There’s no need to buy creams, lotions, or replacement blades or razors. And you never have to worry about razor burn, stubble, ingrown hairs or cuts.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing
Hair removal through the use of hot wax is a popular method. Wax is first applied to the area, a cloth strip is placed on top of the wax, and the strip is ripped off, removing the hair by plucking it out from the root of the hair follicle. Naturally this process can be extremely painful, and what’s worse, it needs to be repeated every few weeks. Waxing also requires the hair to be grown out prior to treatment, while laser hair removal does not.
In contrast, laser hair removal is the far gentler option. Instead of plucking the hair out from the root, this method uses pulsing light beams to target the hair follicle. Normally five to seven treatment sessions will provide optimum results.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Electrolysis
With electrolysis, a needle is inserted into each hair follicle. Then an electric shock burns the follicle to restrict hair growth. It’s every bit as painful as it sounds.
Laser hair removal utilizes a quicker and less painful process. The laser’s hand piece has a far larger treatment area, so treatments can be completed much faster with minimal discomfort. Compared to electrolysis, which can take a year or more to complete one hair at a time, laser hair removal treatments take only a matter of months, with each treatment disabling and removing thousands of hairs at once.
What type of laser technology is used?
Soprano XL Diode Laser
The Soprano laser system from Alma Lasers, Inc. is the gold standard for hair removal technology. It uses an intensely concentrated beam of light and a series of high-repetition pulses to increase the temperature of the hair follicle and the surrounding tissue to ensure that the hair is destroyed at the source. This is a vast improvement on traditional hair removal technology that uses a single pulse and is limited in effecting the surrounding tissue – a crucial area to treat along with the follicle.
The patented software-controlled pulse management method optimizes the treatment best suited to each skin type. And with its tissue cooling system, the Soprano reduces discomfort and post-procedure side effects of redness and swelling. Soprano provides the most advanced and comprehensive treatment available to get to the root of unwanted hair growth.
How does the Soprano compare to other lasers?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL lasers use shorter light wavelengths, making them more diffuse and less powerful for the permanent reduction of hair. This technology lacks the strength to penetrate to a deeper level where the hair root resides, and requires a higher number of treatment sessions to achieve successful results.
The Alexandrite laser has become outdated in the age of more advanced technology. Among the limitations of this shorter wavelength laser, it is not appropriate for darker skin types, and is typically more painful and causes more trauma to the skin than other treatments.
ND YAG Laser
The design of the ND YAG laser has a longer wavelength than other treatments in order to treat patients with darker skin types. Yet when laser energy must travel further to reach this greater depth of penetration, the energy can sometimes dissipate in the surrounding tissue, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.

Great service & friendly staff. I had the AFT treatments and it really works. Almost all my sun spots are gone after 4 treatments. Would recommend Sona MedSpa to anyone!
Everyone at Sona MedSpa has been professional, friendly, and accommodating. I don't feel rushed and the treatments have been effective in reducing sun damage and dark areas.
The staff and nurses are very professional and do a great job. I have had great results with chemical peels and AFT. I highly recommend them.
I've had pixel, hair removal, and AFT treatments at Sona and I've had overall great results. The pixel removed dark spots on my forehead when nothing else worked. So I was very happy with that treatment in particular.
I've been using Sona for years and I really feel like it's helped me maintain a youthful appearance. I am complimented regularly on the smoothness of my skin and on how I don't need makeup.
I was very reluctant to do something like this for myself, but was the best decision I have made in a long time. The pixel has made a big difference in my skin tone and tightening of the skin. When I look in the mirror it makes me feel good. I purchased a package and can't wait to see the end result. Everyone is very nice and I look forward to my appointments.
Love my results! The staff is great! Such a comfortable experience, can't wait to start another package!
Sona Med Spa provides excellent customer service and superior medical services. I am very impressed with the facility, professionalism, and overall service provided.
I've been going to Sona for several years now. Have always been impressed with their professionalism, enjoy the staff and of course the results speak for themselves. Thanks Sona!
