Clinical Facials

Clinical Facials*

We may suggest a clinical facial after your skin analysis and initial consultation. The condition of your skin will depend on which facial will benefit you the most. Some of our available facials include:

Customized Anti-Aging Facial*

Our new favorite facial is our Customized Anti-Aging Facial. A combination of exfoliating processes, such as Dermaplaning and Dermasweep MD, a chemical peel and deep pore extraction is selected for you by your aesthetician based on the health of your skin. Your treatment is finished with hydrating and moisturizing steps leaving your skin youthful and glowing.

HydraFacial™ Basic & Premium*

HydraFacial™ is a non-invasive, non-laser skin-resurfacing facial that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. This treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities and debris from pores while hydrating and moisturizing the skin with Vortex- Fusion™. Vortex Fusion™ uses potent antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. HydraFacial™ Premium includes Lymphatic Drainage, DermaBuilder Peptide Complex and LED Light Therapy to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Dr. B Signature™ Oxygen Facial*

Dr. B Signature™ Oxygen Facial is ideal for rehydrating and balancing prematurely aged or dry skin. It includes two gentle exfoliation steps, first with an enzyme exfoliation or dermaplaning, followed by a mild acid application. Then a powerful serum containing antioxidants and hyaluronic acid is custom chosen for you and concentrated into your skin with a hyperbaric oxygen mist. Additional serums may be recommended.


MicroPeel® is designed for exfoliating the skin without downtime. It features dermaplaning, which removes the mature dead cellular layer along with the unwanted facial hair. Dermaplaning may be substituted with an enzyme exfoliation. This treatment is finished with a mild acid application and liquid nitrogen cryotherapy.

Acne Facial*

Acne Facial deeply cleanses and balances overactive acne-prone skin. It includes a personalized skin analysis, deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions and instructions on how to care for your skin.

High Tech Treatments

High Tech Treatments*

The Bonakdar Institute strives to be at the forefront of modern skin care techniques and cosmetic results. We tirelessly seek out new technology and innovations to bring you the premium skin care quality you deserve. Some of our available products and treatments include:

Clear + Brilliant™ Gentle Resurfacing Treatment*

Clear + Brilliant™ is a revolutionary, gentle laser resurfacing treatment ideal for the busy individual looking for an anti-aging treatment without social downtime. This resurfacing treatment series gives you even and smooth skin, improves skin tone and texture, and reduces pore size appearance.

DermaSweep® MD*

DermaSweep® MD is a medical grade microdermabrasion. This precision exfoliation treatment removes skin debris, cleanses the pores and smoothens the skin as the vacuum action stimulates blood flow to the skin. This process encourages collagen production, thus firming and toning the skin. Customizable acid exfoliation application addresses acne and pigmentation.

Acleara™ Acne Clearing Treatment*

Acleara™ Acne Clearing System is FDA-approved to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne, comedonal acne, and pustular acne. After steaming, Acleara vacuum cleans pores by extracting buildup of sebaceous material. Then Acleara™ broadband light destroys acne-causing bacteria and reduces sebum production through photodynamic action.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels*

Your skin care treatment plan may include several products and processes to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Along with a clinical facial, Dr. Bonakdar may suggest a chemical peel. We offer several options for peels including:

MonBon Flawless Peel & Kit*

Dr. Bonakdar created MonBon Flawless Peel with a combination of mild acids and potent non-acid ingredients. This clever, new generation peel eliminates the discomfort, burn and downtime associated with traditional chemical peels. It is virtually painless and completely safe on dark complexions. This treatment results in gradual skin tone, texture, pores and pigmentation improvement with only mild dryness or peeling. This chemical peel is combined with MonBon Flawless Kit for at-home skin care to help you gain optimal results.

Cosmo Peel*

Imported from France, Cosmo Peel is an advanced in-office, acid-mixed and medium-depth peel customized to your skin’s needs for pigmentation reduction and skin rejuvenation. Cosmo Peel requires 5 to 7 days of moderate downtime to recover.

Customized Superficial and Medium-Depth Peels*

Superficial and medium-depth peels, including Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Jessner’s Peel, improve the appearance of uneven skin, pigmentation and acne. These peels can be done alone or customized in conjunction with DermaSweep MD.

Kiss of Youth

Kiss of Youth*

Using recent technology developed by the creators of the original microdermabrasion machine, Kiss of Youth Needle-Free Collagen Treatment is the only FDA-approved method of delivering surgical-grade collagen into the skin without the use of needle injections. The procedure is completely painless and the results are instant.

The treatment is ideal for anyone who suffers from:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Brow and frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Aging or dry skin

Kiss of Youth Needle-Free Collagen Treatment utilizes a new, patented technology called Dermoelectroporation (DEP). This groundbreaking new transdermal delivery system employs a controlled current to open passage channels in the skin, allowing drugs and molecules to seamlessly enter the permeable skin tissue. The electrical pulses that open the skin’s passage channels are disguised by a vibratory hand piece. The treatment itself feels like an instant gulp of hydration for the skin. The treated areas continue to adjust and feel even plumper for up to 48 hours following the procedure.

This FDA-approved skin care treatment utilizes the same surgical-grade collagen used to treat hospitalized burn and wound patients with open wounds throughout America, Europe and Asia. Dr. Bonakdar has undergone the treatment herself, and was immediately sold on the exceptional comfort and beatifying results of the procedure.

Collagen injections help smooth out wrinkles, fill in fine lines and add volume to aging, lax skin. But let’s face it: most people don’t like needles. The Kiss of Youth Needle-Free Collagen Treatment is an amazing new method of delivering collagen deep into the skin without the use of needle injections.*

While other transdermal delivery systems such as Electroporation, Iontophoresis and Ultrasound are available elsewhere, their results are limited, painful and may inactivate the drug being administered. Only Kiss of Youth Needle-Free Collagen Treatment, a proprietary skin rejuvenation treatment at the Bonakdar Institute, can deliver the results, comfort and safety you need.*
