About Acne Treatments
Acne, also referred to as pimples or zits, affects millions of men, women, and adolescents. Our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Petroff, and his team understand how difficult acne can be to remove and the amount of stress it can cause. At Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa, we offer advanced laser treatments using the Smoothbeam laser technology to help our Lake Oswego, OR patients eliminate their acne. The Smoothbeam is specially designed to target the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for the production of oil that can lead to acne. The intense heat and energy from the Smoothbeam can transform the structure of the oil-producing glands, ensuring they do not overproduce oil that eventually leads to blemishes on the surface of the skin. Patients can learn more about all of our laser treatments by contacting our office for a consultation.
The best candidates for receiving the Smoothbeam laser acne treatment will have:
- Noticeable acne on the face or body
- Tried other methods without success
- A desire for a long-term result
- Overall good health and strong immune system
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"Humble & Amazing Doctor - I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to have found Dr. Petroff. I was searching years for a doctor that I felt confident in their work. After meeting him for the first time, I knew 100% I was comfortable having the surgery done by him. He has a very humble personality for being such an amazing doctor, and he makes you feel confident and comfortable through out the whole process."- K. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2018
"I just had my nose done by Dr. Petroff about a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. His work is flawless. I had a huge embarrassing nose. Everywhere I went I felt like everyone was staring at it. Dr. Petroff made it perfect, petite, upturned, just what I dreamed of. He gave me my confidence back. The procedure itself was a breeze. I had minimal bruising and swelling and was back at work in like 6 days. Everyone is obsessed with my results. My only regret is not doing this sooner. I'm so happy I chose Dr. Petroff!"- A.L. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018
What to Expect
A typical treatment will take about 20 - 30 minutes with very little downtime. A consultation with one of our laser technicians will help determine the unique treatment schedule and intervals between treatments. Some mild discomfort may be produced during the treatment, but a numbing cream can be applied to reduce the pain. Patients of all ages who are struggling with acne can benefit from a series of treatments.
3 - 4 sessions are usually required to create optimal results when treating active acne. Patients can expect to see gradually improved skin with less visible acne after each session. Results can last as long as 18 months in certain patients, and then follow-up treatments can be scheduled to maintain the desired outcome.
