My Experience. He is Committed to His Craft - Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

I found him on the internet. Dr Bunkis is a true professional who is committed to his craft and his patients well being. He is an artist and a visionary. His work has truly changed people's lives! I have known him for years and one thing I especially admire about him is that he will only do what is necessary and not what will benefit his bottom line. That's a rare trait for a surgeon in Orange County. His easy going demeanor and professional staff will further enhance your experience. I highly recommend Dr. Bunkis!!

3 IPL Treatments and Sun Spots Are Gone! Newport Beach, CA

I purchased an online deal for 3 IPL treatments, only because I was unsure if they would work for me. The first treatment definitely did a lot of the work. My face had dark spots and splotches for a week, which means the IPL worked.. then they just disappeared! I just got the third and it's still zapping away the remaining spots. I had a few IPL's done in the past that didn't do anything...

Within the week virtually all the...
