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 is meticulous! - Four months ago Dr. Petroff performed my lower facelift and chin implant surgery and in my opinion the experience and results are the finest possible.I’ve had 3 prior plastic surgeries mostly on a congenital body issue. Two of the surgeries successful, and one, a very bad experience. I’m knowledgeable of what can go right, or wrong, with a surgeon. I spent two years researching phy..."- P. / RealSelf / Jan 25, 2018
"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Petroff or his staff! I got a rhinoplasty done at the Petroff Center 6 months ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with how my nose turned out. The entire process was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and I know that's because of the expertise of Dr. Petroff! I barely bruised, had minimal swelling and healed extremely fast. He somehow managed to give me everything I wanted out of my surgery and more. He has the absolute perfect eye for rhinoplasty, I constantly get compliments about how natural my nose looks now, and how it looks like the nose I should've had! Not only that his staff is amazing, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful! I can't even begin to describe how absolutely beautiful and happy I feel because of this surgery and I'm so so glad I chose The Petroff Center. If you're wanting a rhinoplasty; especially in Oregon there's just no one better than Dr. Petroff!!"- S.R. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2017
"I've had multiple treatments of lip injections from Dr. Petroff and I can honestly say he is the only doctor I will trust in the Portland area. He listened to my request and concerns on how I liked the shape of my lips. He is very knowledgeable on what types of injectables I would benefit from and what injections may not work the best for me. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility."- T.R. / Yelp / Dec 09, 2017
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.
