acne treatment Portland Oregon Clackamas


Acne is an irratation of the skin caused by clogged pores which result in whiteheads, blackheads and inflamed cysts. Acne may appear on the face, back, chest, legs or buttocks. While commonly associated with adolescents, acne can affect those of every age.

Acne can occur at almost any age but most commonly occurs during adolescence. It can produce emotional and physical pain, scarring and disfigurement and has historically been very difficult to treat. Fifty percent of adult females will have some manifestation of acne and especially during the premenstrual phase. Hormones and especially testosterone seems to have an effect on acne.


Acne scars can the skin

At VIP MediSpa our long term solution for acne is laser therapy which is our treatment of choice. By combining two painless devices an extremely effective protocol has been developed. We have treated hundreds of patients with laser therapy over the last several years. During the course of treatment the redness begins to disappear and the size of the blemishes diminishes. Gradually over the next several months the acne begins to disappear and the size of the blemishes diminishes. Treatments can also reduce scarring, redness and wrinkles at the same time.

Treatment Options Include:

  • Topical Creams
  • Antibiotics


Scars are depressions or indentations in the skin that occur after a medical condition such as acne or after a surgical incision. Especially when they're on the face or other visible areas, scars can carry the stigma of adolescent acne long after the acne is gone, or they can serve as unpleasant reminders of a past surgery.

Acne scars can occur as the skin heals from pimples, whiteheads and blackheads that form when oil, bacteria and dead cells get stuck below the skin's surface. Acne scars are typically indented marks or raised, red areas that sometimes give the skin a wavy appearance. Surgical scars, meanwhile, form naturally as skin heals from an incision.

    • I have had laser hair removal, microdermabrasions, laser treatment for hyperpigmentation and BOTOX® and have had wonderful results from each. The doctor and staff are professional yet have a fun sense of humor that makes my trips here fun and enjoyable. I will definitely keep coming back! VipMedispa is the best aesthetic medicine clinic in Happy Valley, Clackamas, in Portland

    • Great service! Absolutely the best SPA in Portland area I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide.

    • I have a very low tolerance for pain – Dr. Max made sure I didn’t feel any discomfort during the procedure.

I can now wear clothes I haven’t worn in a few years. I put on a pair of work slacks I hadn’t worn since before, and they fell down after I buttoned them! I also am loving that it gave me more incentive to take care of myself better, eat healthier, and exercise more. I am 43 going on 27.
