Alma TED at Bonakdar Aesthetics

As one of the first Newport Beach Alma TED providers, Dr. Monica Bonakdar and her team are thrilled to offer patients a new way to fight hair loss and regain a healthy, full head of hair. Her namesake practice, Bonakdar Aesthetics, has earned a reputation as a leading cosmetic treatment center for the hair, body, and face over the last two decades.

What is Alma TED?

Alma TED is a brand-new hair restoration treatment that helps regrow healthier, thicker hair and improves overall scalp health—all without needles, pain, or downtime.

Using a powerful ultrasound-energy platform, TED's handheld device emits acoustic sound waves and pressurized air through a proprietary tip. The combination of forced air and energy drive the active ingredients in TED+ Hair Care Formula past the skin barrier and deep into the scalp, where it goes to work stimulating the hair follicles. The result is thick, new hair growth in sparse areas, allowing patients to reclaim a more lustrous, full head of hair.

Alma TED is a three-part system in one:

  • Air pressure
  • Acoustic waves
  • TED+ Topical Hair Care Formula

The system is unique since it offers proven hair growth benefits without the discomfort and post-procedural shedding associated with other in-office hair restoration procedures.

What is the TED+ Hair Care Formula?

The proprietary active ingredients in the patented TED+ Hair Care Formula are clinically proven to stimulate new hair growth.

They also promote healthier and shinier hair. While there are many hair growth oils and serums on the market, the science-driven, evidentiary research-based formula TED manufactures is second to none. Another reason it works is TED's revolutionary delivery system, which helps the ingredients penetrate deeper into the scalp in a process known as sonophoresis. TED, which stands for 'transepidermal delivery,' painlessly bypasses the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of skin, to deliver a synergistic blend of hair growth actives into the dermis where they are most beneficial.


What can Alma TED do for you?

As you wash or style your hair, you may have noticed more strands falling out. Whether it is due to normal hair loss, stress-related hair loss, hair loss resulting from COVID-19, or thinning hair caused by pregnancy, Alma TED can put a stop to it and help you get your hair back.

The earliest stages of hair fallout can be devastating. When your appearance changes, it can challenge your sense of identity or cause feelings of embarrassment. Styling your hair may feel like a battle every morning or have you reaching for a baseball cap to hide your thinning hair.

With Alma TED, we now have a painless, minimally invasive way to stimulate new hair growth without needles, incisions, or anesthesia. Best of all, there is no downtime, and patients won't have to endure any post-treatment hair shedding associated with older hair restoration options.

  • Hair thinning
  • Normal hair loss
  • Post-Covid hair loss
  • Postpartum hair loss
  • Excessive hair shedding during showers or brushing

Consultation and Preparation

Your consultation begins with discussing your concerns and lifestyle or health factors that may be related to your hair loss. The Alma TED-certified providers at Bonakdar Aesthetics will speak with you honestly about what the treatment can do and what to expect. They may also tell you about other hair loss treatments, such as PRP with or without microneedling. They will examine your scalp to determine the extent of hair loss and whether you are a candidate. If you decide to move forward with Alma TED, arrive at your appointment with clean hair free of styling products.


Dr. Bonakdar's Alma TED-certified staff perform the treatment. The procedure takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. As your hair loss specialist works the device over your scalp targeting the thinning areas, you will feel a light vibration and hear a ringing sound. That is the ultrasonic energy going to work, stimulating the hair follicles and introducing the proprietary topical ingredients of the TED+ Hair Care Formula deep into your scalp. There is absolutely no pain or incisions, and anesthesia is not required.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

With no downtime, the Alma TED recovery process couldn't be more comfortable or convenient. You can resume daily activities right away. Do not wash or color your hair for the first 24 hours.

Patients typically notice visible improvements within 30 days after receiving Alma TED. However, repeat treatments may be necessary to achieve fuller hair. On average, most clients undergo three treatments spaced a month apart.
