Treatment Options at the Bonakdar Institute 

Dr. Bonakdar will evaluate your skin and then make the appropriate recommendations based on your unique skin characteristics. Some of the treatments she may suggest include:

  • Skincare Products and Devices
    For enlarged pores and active acne, a results-oriented treatment program starts with a good home regimen that includes a combination of physician-grade cosmeceuticals, Clarisonic® home device and acne-specific prescription products.
  • Acleara™
    This unique treatment combines a vacuum hand piece with IPL technology and is appropriate for active acne. The vacuum cleans pores by extracting buildup of sebaceous material (oils). The IPL targets and heats the sebaceous glands to destroy acne-producing bacteria and reduce sebum production.
  • Acne Facial or DermaSweep MD™
    Microdermabrasion treatments with DermaSweep help vacuum away dirt and debris while stimulating blood flow and clearing pores. Clean pores then shrink and look flaw-less. Acne Facial can cleanse and balance acne-prone skin.
  • Intense Pulsed Light
    IPL is a  light-based therapy used to minimize enlarged pores and clear hyperpigmentation from previous acne.
  • UltraPulse® FX or Fraxel® DUAL
    In the not-too-distant past, there were few (if any) treatments available for acne scars. However, now laser resurfacing procedures like UltraPulse FX and Fraxel DUAL can help. These treatments rebuild the skin from the bottom up and erase scars for flawless-looking skin.
  • Dermal Fillers Such as Bellafill®
    In severe cases where previous acne has left dented scars in the skin (also called depressed acne scars), a long-lasting dermal filler can be used to fill the pitted area and replenish volume loss.
