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.
Best Candidates for Acne Treatment
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

What to Expect with Acne Treatment
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.
Acne Treatment Anticipated Results
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.
