Dr. Monica Bonakdar

Aesthetix Lab Founder & Medical Director, Dr. Monica Bonakdar

Dr. Monica Bonakdar takes an all-in approach to helping patients achieve the kind of glow that basically requires no-filter posts. While looks are superficial, Dr. Bonakdar’s method is anything but surface-level. For decades, Dr. Bonakdar has demonstrated next-level understanding of skin health and extreme patient empathy, establishing her as an industry authority and all-around boss. 

Following academic success at some of the state’s most prestigious universities (Go Bruins!), the SoCal native returned to Orange County to open her private practice. Bonakdar Aesthetics brought a brand new take on cosmetic dermatology, breaking down the complexities of individualized skin care into a tried, true, and tested method that allows every patient to take their ideal look from “filter” to “irl”.

A dedicated proponent of innovations in aesthetic technologies, Dr. Bonakdar serves as a key opinion leader in the Allergan Medical Institute faculty and the industry as a whole. She is passionate about operationalizing complex systems, extending her expertise so that others may master abstract concepts with confidence and precision.

Dr. Bonakdar has extended her expertise to help more patients receive aesthetic care as it should be. As founder and medical director of Aesthetix Lab, Dr. Bonakdar ensures that each patient’s experience meets her standards of excellence.

Chelsea, RN

Registered Nurse

Chelsea comes to Aesthetix LAB with extensive experience in the field of aesthetics. After working for a facial plastic surgeon as a medical assistant for seven years, she decided to pursue a career in nursing and became an Aesthetic Registered Nurse in 2014.

Chelsea's philosophy is aligned with Aesthetix LAB in slowing down the signs of aging and enhancing each individual's natural beauty. Her favorite saying is "Overdone is out, natural beauty is in." She believes in doing full face assessment for facial optimization and balance using Botox, Fillers, and lasers.

Chelsea has a gentle touch and calm demeanor, that is appreciated by her patients. Her goal is for each person to feel safe in her experienced hands, and leave with more confidence than when they arrived.
