Anesthesia Services

At our practice, facial cosmetic rejuvenation services that involve more than local anesthesia are typically performed using IV sedation, sometimes called ‘twilight anesthesia’.

IV sedation is performed in our fully-accredited private surgical suite located in Torrance.

Many people are familiar with IV sedation from their experience with colonoscopy, which is often performed using this type of IV anesthesia.

As compared with general anesthesia, IV sedation allows for faster awakening and recovery, less post-operative nausea and fewer unpleasant side effects sometimes associated with general anesthesia.

During their procedure, patients are comfortable, relaxed, still, pleasantly unaware and breathing on their own without a ‘breathing tube’ or intubation.

For your safety and comfort, an anesthetist is present for the sole purpose of your anesthesia administration and monitoring.

Our anesthesia team has been personally selected by Dr. Pearson for their high level of skill, safety and patient satisfaction.
