Share Article

Physicians at Allegro MedSpa, a day spa in Sonoma County, say new at-home laser hair removal systems haven't caused a drop in the number of patients coming to them for professional hair removal treatments.

Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales of Allegro MedSpa say the recent introduction of at-home laser hair removal systems hasn't decreased the number of patients at their day spa near Sonoma.

"It should come as no surprise that women and men with excess hair want a treatment that is both easy and effective," Dr. Furnas says. "The recent release of at-home laser systems offers convenience, but many people find that professional treatment provides a more permanent answer. We haven't noticed a significant change in the number of patients who want laser hair removal at our day spa."

The doctors at Allegro MedSpa, a Napa area day spa, attribute the continued demand for their hair removal services to a number of factors. Professional laser hair removal is not only safe but the established technology provides proven, dependable results.

The doctors at Allegro perform hair removal on both large and small areas of the body, using advanced techniques for critical areas such as the face.

"Women and men come to our day spa for more than just quality results," Dr. Canales says. "We work with our experienced staff to create personal and permanent solutions. While at-home systems may appear cheaper, not all systems provide equal strength. Some people find themselves turning to professionals after becoming frustrated with trying multiple at-home brands."

The treatments available at Allegro MedSpa extend beyond laser hair removal in Santa Rosa, CA. Women and men commonly combine their hair removal treatments with procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers.

"We provide a range of complementary procedures to help patients enhance the results of their laser hair removal," Dr. Furnas says. "I'm happy to see that more people are discovering the benefits of laser technology, and I recommend that all people interested in laser hair removal seek the advice of an experienced professional. At-home systems could eventually provide the long-lasting results that people desire, but it's important to ensure that any potential treatment is both effective and safe."

Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales of Allegro MedSpa and Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa ( are board-certified plastic surgeons who perform a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Furnas graduated from the UCLA School of Medicine and completed a six-year residency in plastic surgery at Stanford University. Dr. Canales received his medical degree from Stanford in 1982 and completed his plastic surgery residency at Stanford University Hospital. They are both certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have been performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, body contouring and facial rejuvenation for patients in the Santa Rosa and Napa areas since 1992.
