Award-winning plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Sepehr and his affable staff work to rejuvenate appearances and keep up-to-the-minute on the latest developments in cosmetic facial procedures. After a preliminary consultation to determine desired results and goals, the doctor kick-starts the SmartSkin CO2 fractional laser, capable of erasing fine lines, reversing sun damage, and filling in divots from head-butting a hornet’s nest. After applying a topical anesthetic, Dr. Sepehr scans the façade with powerful pulses of light designed to zap away damaged layers of skin while promoting healthy collagen growth and renewal of healthy, younger epidermal tissue. Patients may see some results almost immediately after their 30-minute procedure, with minimal downtime and temporary discomfort and redness similar to being mildly sunburnt or being insulted by a senator. Patients must stay out of the sun for two weeks prior to their treatment.
The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Ali Sepehr has spent his entire career focused on the human face. While other doctors dabble in a variety of fields, he felt that choosing one specialty would allow him to truly treat a patient to the best of his ability. This single-minded devotion has led him to train under renowned surgeon Peter Adamson, receive board certification, and earn the 2010 Reuther Kris Conrad Merit Award for outstanding achievement in his field. He demonstrates his expertise at The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery by performing a variety of facial treatments, from liquid face-lifts and Botox injections to eyelid lifts and brow surgeries.
