Tired of shaving? You have another option; a permanent option, eliminating the need to ever shave again. Sona MedSpa, located at 827 Diligence Drive, Suite 206, Newport News, provides a comfortable effective way to remove unwanted facial or body hair with a gentle beam of light.
The specialists at Sona MedSpa are highly qualified and committed to a standard of excellence unsurpassed in the art of laser hair removal.
Before you can fully understand the process of laser hair removal, you need to know a few things about the hair itself. To begin with, many factors influence hair growth your age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, medication, and hormones each play a role in your hair's resilience, thickness and areas of growth. Also, your hair grows in cycles; the active growth phase (Anagen), the dormant phase (Catagen), and the fall-out phase (Telogen). Medical science has determined that the laser effectively treats only the hair in the Anagen or growth phase.
People of all ages and genders use Sona to remove unwanted hair. Rutherford has consulted with people as young as 15 and people in their 80s. No one under 15 can be treated because their body is still undergoing hormonal changes.
"People just want to feel better about themselves, they get laser hair removal for themselves," says Rutherford.
At Sona MedSpa confidentiality is respected.
"Usually only one person is scheduled at a time so the clients don't see each other in the waiting room. We want people to be comfortable coming in here," says Rutherford.
Sona MedSpa will develop a personal program just for you by outlining a scientifically-based treatment schedule that meets your hair removal goals and lifestyle. This treatment plan will address all of the criteria that are uniquely yours, such as your skin and hair type and the growth phases of your hair. Sona has incorporated multiple lasers into their centers along with the newest product innovations to enable treatment of all skin types and hair colors.
The selected area of your skin will be scanned, targeting the melanin in the hair. During the scan, the laser will emit a beam of invisible light that will pass through your skin and be absorbed by the air. This absorption will disable the follicle and impair further hair growth.
Sona MedSpas can be found all over the country.
"I've seen it grow from two to three centers, to centers all over the nation," says Rutherford.
