Dr. Sawan helps patients look and feel their best, with non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments
February 18, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Skin changes are among the most noticeable signs of aging. These signs of aging commonly include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven pigmentation, and damage from sun exposure. Dr. Kamal Sawan explains that these signs of aging can be treated non-surgically with The Pearl Laser by Cutera.
Dr. Sawan, of Juveniss Plastic Surgery in Oklahoma, says that laser skin resurfacing is a great, non-surgical method of restoring a patient's skin. He says that the main benefit of the procedure is making skin look younger and healthier.
According to Dr. Sawan, the laser resurfacing procedure removes precisely, layer by layer. The new skin cells that form as the skin heals give the patient a younger, healthier look. For laser skin resurfacing procedures, Dr. Sawan uses the Pearl Laser by Cutera, which offers patients exceptional, minimally-invasive treatment for fine wrinkles and other signs of aging. Patients can receive 1 to 2 treatments comfortably, and can expect to recover in a few days. Dr. Sawan explains treatment for certain areas of the face will usually take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete, while complete treatment of the face will take about 2 hours. A local anesthetic is usually required to sedate the patient, and general anesthesia may be required if the patient is receiving a full-face treatment.
Dr. Sawan says that this is performed as an outpatient procedure. Following the procedure, patients will need to wear bandages in order to protect the treated area, which will also need to be cleaned in order to prevent scabs from forming. Patients may experience some itchiness or swelling following the procedure, though these side-effects are usually temporary. Dr. Sawan adds that medication can be prescribed to ease the patient's swelling. The Pearl Laser is unique, since patients can see their results just 3 to 4 days following treatment, Dr. Sawan notes.
Dr. Sawan and his talented staff work closely with every patient, to meet their specific needs. Interested parties are encouraged to learn more about laser skin resurfacing by contacting Dr. Sawan directly at (405) 271-4864, or by visiting http://www.juveniss.com.
