Dr. Bonakdar uses an advanced IPL system called Lumenis M22 to treat skin pigmentation irregularities. This sophisticated technology offers a superior combination of strength, versatility, and precision that allows Dr. Bonakdar to customize your treatment for optimal results.
This treatment is safe and effective for almost all areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms, and legs. During the procedure, broad-spectrum light energy is absorbed by the pigmented components of the skin. After just 1 treatment, our Newport Beach IPL Laser patients will notice an improvement in age spots, sun spots, melasma, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
During IPL Laser Newport Beach Cosmetic Dermatology expert Dr. Monica Bonakdar applies topical numbing cream to the skin to minimize discomfort. During treatment, cool ultrasound gel and a special air cooler keep the skin from getting too hot as pulses of light are delivered to the epidermis.
This process typically takes about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Generally, there is no downtime with IPL. Most clients are able to wear mineral makeup to camouflage any discoloration and can return to their usual activities right away.
During the course of several days, the pigmented area will become darker and then slough off with washing. For best results, a series of 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart is typically recommended. After the desired improvement has been achieved, maintenance treatments are usually performed quarterly or yearly.
Dr. Bonakdar has been using IPL for the past 20 years and has advanced her procedures as the technology has evolved.
