Fall Into Fall With Less Sun Damage and Healthier Skin


Nothing is better than spending your summer at Newport Beach with a nice cold drink and a good book— after all, it is Orange County! However, although that Southern California sun may have given you the R&R you so badly needed, it may have also left you with a bit more sun damage than you are aware of. Luckily, I have a variety of resurfacing treatments solutions to help repair your sun damage and ease you into fall feeling refreshed.

Intense Pulse Light:

IPL is a light based treatment that works to restore clear, luminous skin and get rid of that summer sun damage. Here at Bonakdar Institute, I use an advanced IPL system called Lumenis M22 which allows me to customize your treatment and address both brown and red damage in your skin. During your procedure, a series of broad-spectrum light energies work to break up the pigmentation as well as clear up those pesky broken capillaries with zero to minimal downtime.

Clear and Brilliant

Prevention is the best antidote to aging. I recommend patients who are in their 20’s and 30’s to start on preventative skin care treatment regimens like Clear and Brilliant. This baby laser treatment creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin which works to replace your sun damaged cells while improving texture and clarity all with barely any social downtime.


Fraxel is the gold standard when it comes to taking care of your skin in your 40’s and 50’s, and it’s a favorite of my patients for a good reason. As one of the first physicians to use Fraxel in Newport Beach, I have years of experience with this unique laser technology. By using two different wavelengths, Fraxel works to treat superficial and deep skin damage caused by a variety of things including the sun. It takes about five days to heal from a Fraxel treatment.


I recommend the UltraPulse to patients who have accumulated years of sun damage and have moderate to severe pigmentation as well as aging lines and wrinkles. One of the main reasons UltraPulse CO2 laser treatment is popular in my practice is its rapid healing in ten days due to the factional technology. The addition of PRP at the time of the treatment decreases the downtime to just under a week.
