Aesthetic Physician with services for all skin care types

Find Expert Aesthetic Physician Near Beaverton Different skin types require different formulas in order to achieve lasting results which is why we determine skin type prior to treatment. As Aesthetic Physicians, we have discovered that many individuals don’t know their skin type. Knowing this is important because it influences the type of skin care products you use at home and your risk factors for certain conditions.

Now you may be wondering, “How do I determine my skin type?” Skin type can be affected by many different factors including heredity, hormones, and environment. The most common types of skin are normal, oily, dry, sensitive, and a combination of those four.

Normal Skin

Normal skin has a smooth, even texture and tone with minimal lines. It is more common in children than adults. Patients with normal skin have blemish-free complexions.

Oily Skin

The sebaceous glands produce oil and force it out through hair pores and is the cause of acne. Because the sebaceous glands are controlled by hormones, people who are in puberty, pregnant, or premenstrual have a greater chance of having acne breakouts. Oily skin is generally characterized as coarse and shiny, often with blackheads or whiteheads.

Dry Skin

Dry skin often appears dull, rough, inflamed, or cracking due to the lack of moisture. Dry skin can be hereditary but can also be caused by environmental factors such as the soap we use, laundry detergent, air pollution, or contact with other chemicals. People with dry skin have an excess of water loss in the skin due to a defect in the skin’s barrier.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is a phrase that is commonly used, but not always with a clear definition. When you think of sensitive skin, most people think about skin that is prone to reactions to certain irritants (often the same ones that cause dry skin). Sensitive skin is usually defined by redness or flaking, swelling, lines, or fine textures.


Many people have combinations of skin types. Most often this will mean certain areas of the skin are normal, or dry, while others can be oily. Treating combination skin can be difficult because often multiple products will need to be used to hydrate dry spots or to dry out oily spots.

Once we determine skin type, we offer many different services, here are just a few of them.

Acne Treatment

Men and women of all ages can be affected by acne. The condition can be troubling for the appearance as well as self-esteem. We can formulate an individualized acne treatment plan to help eliminate outbreaks and minimize the potential for scarring.

Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is most common in patients with fair skin, although it can appear on any patient at any time. The redness, cysts, and papules can often be mistaken for acne. Our team has years of experience identifying Rosacea triggers and helping patients minimize flare-ups.

Brown Spots and Melasma Treatment

Melasma is a pigmentation condition that causes brown spots on the skin, most frequently due to sun damage or hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy. We offer several different options for treatment of brown spots, including laser therapy and chemical peels. We will work with you to determine which treatment is best based on skin tone and type.

PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma is a product that is derived from the patient’s body, which makes it unique from other treatments. It has been used for years in various medicinal settings to help promote healing and tissue recovery. As its use was monitored over the years, extensive documentation noticed that platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) is extremely successful in stimulating collagen growth. Thus, the treatment has evolved into one of the latest and greatest additions to aesthetic medicine.

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.


You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,


Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,


And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.


Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,


Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.


The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
