Microneedling RESURFACING treatments are our specialties at Bonakdar Aesthetics, a state-of-the-art cosmetic dermatology facility that has been offering microneedling treatments since 2012.

As this novel treatment has developed, Dr. Bonakdar has upgraded our devices multiple times. We currently own one of only two microneedling devices in the USA that have been cleared by the FDA and are legal to use.

At Bonakdar Aesthetics we offer a menu of customized microneedling treatments to treat various skin needs and aesthetic goals. Our current device has a 12-needle tip, which we use for no downtime microneedling FACIALS, and a 36-needle tip that we use for more comprehensive microneedling resurfacing treatments.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-laser skin resurfacing treatment that improves the tone and texture of the skin and reduces surface skin imperfections. Microneedling RESURFACING is the aggressive form of this procedure and ideal for those looking for actual laser skin resurfacing with less hassle and cost.

Microneedling RESURFACING benefits include:

  • Reverses many visible signs of aging skin
  • Minimizes the appearance of pores 
  • Corrects and evens skin tone and texture
  • Smooths out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Diminishes the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the appearance of surgical scars
  • Diminishes the appearance of stretch marks

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling is a fractional treatment, meaning that a fraction of the skin is treated at a time. The treatment is performed using an automated stamping pen with a tip composed of 36 microneedles to stamp tiny punctures into the skin.

The body responds to micro-injuries from aesthetic procedures much like it does to traumatic injuries and initiates the wound healing cascade. This means improved circulation and oxygenation to the skin, as well as increased production of new collagen and elastin, which builds and nourishes skin tissue.

As with other fractional treatments, the surrounding untreated areas of skin heal the micro-treatment zones rapidly and initiate the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and chest, but may also be performed on other areas of the body such as the back or buttocks for our Newport Beach Microneedling clients.

Customized Microneedling Treatments

Each microneedling treatment is customized based on your skin health and treatment goals at Bonakdar Aesthetics.

Microneedling stamping action produces micro-channels in the skin that allow absorption of topically applied active products to the deep layers of the skin. Topicals selected include Antiaging booster for color, texture and hydration improvements, PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma for increased healing and collagen stimulation, and chemical peels for enhanced peeling and rejuvenation.

Microneedling FAQs

No. we start every microneedling session with an application of topical anesthetic to the skin for 30 minutes. At Bonakdar Aesthetics, we aim to deliver the most comfortable Microneedling Newport Beach has to offer.

A typical RESURFACING treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

Microneedling RESURFACING treatments are recommended every two to four weeks.

While outcomes vary depending on the treatment level and customization, results are visible as soon as the skin heals and continues for the next three to six months.

At best, home dermarollers are ineffective, and at worst, they are unsafe. In a professional microneedling device, the needles are used once and then discarded. But home dermarollers are used repeatedly, increasing the risk of skin infection and irritation.

Because of the way they are constructed, these devices cannot be cleaned properly and may begin to harbor viruses, fungi, and bacteria which are then introduced into the skin with the next use.

Dermaroller needles also get dull and therefore instead of resulting in superficial micro-treatment zones, they may cause deep injury and even scarring.

Dr. Bonakdar recommends you throw away home dermarollers and come into Bonakdar Aesthetics for a top-quality, professional microneedling treatment that will leave your skin looking fresh and renewed.

Both treatments are very comfortable for the patient and produce significant improvement in the health and appearance of the skin. Both treatments work in the same manner, except that Vivace combines a radiofrequency component with microneedling which surprisingly lessens the treatment downtime but improves the treatment results.

This slight difference results in less downtime and better treatment results with Vivace. If you choose to combine Vivace with PRP treatments, the skin will be pink to red immediately post-treatment. There is no downtime.
