Acne is one of the most common and frustrating skin problems. Most people with acne-prone skin try various homemade remedies and over-the-counter medications to treat acne, but usually with little to no success. That’s because most acne treatments fail to address the root cause of your acne breakouts. Aura Aesthetics identifies the root cause of your breakouts to provide effective acne treatment in Portland that reduces breakouts and acne scars. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your acne treatment options with our provider today.
Get to the Bottom of Your Acne Problem
What Causes Acne?
The most common cause of acne breakouts is the excessive production of sebum. In healthy skin, the sebaceous glands produce the right quantity of sebum to ensure your skin and hair follicles remain lubricated. However, in acne-prone skin, the sebaceous glands are overly active and produce excessive sebum, which, in turn, clogs the skin pores and hair follicles. Pimples, cysts, and acne occur due to clogged hair follicles and inflamed sebaceous glands. While acne isn’t dangerous, it can be annoying and uncomfortable and lead to scars on your skin. As such, a thorough acne treatment regimen must address the root cause of your acne breakouts and the resultant scars.
Acne Treatments at Aura Aesthetic
Facials are specifically designed to exfoliate your skin to remove all the debris, oil, and sebum from your clogged pores. Our advanced care providers carefully examine your skin type to curate the ideal facial treatment plan for your specific needs. The facial products are massaged over your face to scrub away the skin’s uppermost layers and expel all the trapped impurities, paving the way for smoother, acne-free skin.
HydraFacials is one of the most innovative and effective non-invasive treatments for acne. HydraFacials exfoliate, clean, and hydrate your skin to ensure smooth and uniform skin without impurities or irregularities. The treatment exfoliates and scrubs away the skin’s uppermost layers while nourishing the underlying skin layers with hydrating solutions that give your skin a boost while freeing you from acne. Unlike most treatments, HydraFacial doesn’t dry your skin while treating acne.
VI Peels are specifically-designed chemical peels containing minerals, vitamin C, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, and TCA. These ingredients remove the uppermost layers of the skin while improving your skin’s overall texture. They also control your excess sebum production and unclog your skin pores and hair follicles to ensure smooth and even skin without acne breakouts. VI Peels also shrink your pores to minimize sebum accumulation.
Aura Aesthetic provides medical-grade and high-end skincare products made of the highest quality ingredients to fight bacteria, reduce inflammation, remove impurities, and restore smooth and acne-free skin. Our advanced care providers carefully examine your skin quality and discuss your cosmetic goals to curate the ideal skincare regimen according to your unique concerns and budgetary constraints. Our skin care products can be used individually as long-term acne treatments, or they can supplement your facials and VI peels.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is the ideal non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to restore your skin’s natural evenness and smoothness. The procedure delivers laser energy into your skin’s surface to create micro-channels that activate your skin’s regenerative and collagen production properties. As such, laser skin resurfacing removes the damaged upper layers to pave the way for the smoother skin underneath. Aura Aesthetic uses LaseMD, one of the world’s most innovative laser technologies, to smooth your skin’s textural irregularities without side effects or damage.
Microneedling is an effective non-surgical treatment to reduce or eliminate your acne scars, ensuring smooth and even skin. The microneedling procedure involves placing micro-punctures on your skin’s surface to boost your body’s skin cell regeneration properties. The microneedles puncture the skin’s uppermost surfaces, encouraging your body to activate its healing process, which, in turn, gradually produces new skin cells that replace the older damaged skin cells. As the older skin peels off, the acne scars blend in with the surrounding skin. Microneedling also encourages collagen production to tighten your skin tissues.
Aura Aesthetic provides numerous peels to remove the uppermost surfaces of the skin, thus evening out the skin around your scars. The acne scars are essentially depressions on the skin’s surface. As such, repeated peels remove the skin’s uppermost layers, eventually ensuring that the new skin layers are at the same level as your acne scars. We carefully examine your skin to curate the ideal peel formulae to ensure you have glowing, vibrant, and smooth skin without textural imperfections.
