"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 waxing treatment will involve our licensed aesthetician applying hot wax to cloth strips. The strips will then be administered to the areas that are being treated. The aesthetician will quickly tug on the cloth to remove the hair at the follicle. If the eyebrows are being waxed, the patient can consult beforehand on the desired shape and outcome. Some pain and redness may result, but it will subside shortly. Some patients may wish to combine their brow waxing with brow tinting as well, which can be performed simultaneously.
Patients can expect their treated area to have little to no hair after being waxed. Depending on the patient and hair texture, results will vary. Typically, patients can expect to have smooth skin for 3 - 4 weeks. After the hair growth is long enough, patients can schedule another waxing appointment.
