Acne Treatment Options
Known for her use of sophisticated new technology, Dr. Bonakdar is proud to offer two of the most advanced skin care treatments for acne control. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bonakdar will perform a skin analysis and recommend the most appropriate option for you at our med spa in Newport Beach.
The Isolaz laser combines a vacuum mechanism with broadband light to both remove and destroy acne-causing bacteria. This gentle treatment requires no numbing creams or anesthesia and typically takes between 15 – 20 minutes. The number of sessions necessary will vary between patients, but most see full results after 4 – 6 treatments.
An innovative new way to improve acne, CLARO is an FDA-approved acne treatment hand-held device sold at selected physicians' offices and high end cosmetic retailers. Requiring no creams, lotions, or pills, CLARO offers comprehensive benefits using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. A series of short light pulses simultaneously attack acne bacteria while soothing inflammation, reducing redness, and accelerating the skin's natural healing process. Easy and fast to use, CLARO results are usually visible within 24 hours.
Dr. Bonakdar is a skilled cosmetic specialist with over 15 years of experience helping men and women achieve a look they love.
Typically, there are minimal side effects after Isolaz or CLARO treatments. Some patients may notice mild redness in their skin after treatment, which is only temporary and usually fades within a few hours. If approved by Dr. Bonakdar, you may be able to apply mineral makeup to camouflage any temporary redness.
