Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's nurses beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma and Cynosure lasers. Sun damage, moon damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too, and they can even whiten teeth.

All this med-spa magic comes at the hands of service providers whom Sona only certifies after special training, an exam, and a 40-hour window of supervision. It's a regimen that, along with top-shelf technology and a high concern for laser safety, shows why Sona's been successful since its beginnings 15 years ago.
