Not every treatment is right for everyone so our team of providers will help you decide the best treatment plan especially for you. Our selection of treatments is the best in the Portland area.
How Are Medical Aesthetics and Spa Aesthetics Different?
Medical aesthetic treatments utilize medical technology like injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing. Spa aesthetics focus more on relaxation treatments while medical aesthetics are more result focused. The providers at medical aesthetics clinics, also known as medspa, usually have more education therefore they are able to give more aggressive treatments ending up in better results for the patient.

What Types of Aesthetic Medicine Treatments Are Available?
Bridgeport Laser & Wellness is committed to providing our patients with the best medical aesthetic treatment available. We provide state of the art techniques and use the latest technology to ensure that patients get the results they are looking for.
Botox is one of the most effective treatments for reducing moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines. It is one of the most thoroughly tested dermal injections on the market, and has been approved for use in over 78 countries worldwide. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made by Allergan, and there is no generic equivalent, so you can always be confident that you are getting a trusted and safe product.
As we age, we tend to lose volume in our face, dermal fillers restore our lost volume. Our injectors use the Juvéderm collection of fillers to add additional volume and plumpness back into the face. Juvéderm® XC is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm® XC injectable gel is administered under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your smile lines or parentheses (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvéderm® XC is FDA approved to last up to one year.
A chemical peel is a procedure used to improve the appearance of skin on the neck, face or hands. The skin is applied a chemical solution, which causes it to exfoliate and ultimately peel off. The new, regenerated skin is typically less wrinkled and smoother. Our chemical peels are customized for each patient depending on what their concern is.
EmSculpt Neo is ground breaking revolutionary technology which combines muscle toning energy called HIFEM and fat burning with radio frequency in one treatment. EmSculpt Neo is the only non-invasive body shaping treatment that combines two energies to eliminate fat and build muscles in each 30-minute session.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin without downtime. The result? Tighter, better-fitting skin, on the face and neck! Natural. Non-invasive. No downtime.
Microneedling makes thousands of tiny needle punctures in the top layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the frequency, depth and spacing pattern of these punctures, microneedling stimulates the body to make additional collagen in the specific area where it is applied. This treatment has been shown to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, as well as stretch marks, pigmentation disorders, sun damaged skin, hair loss, and much, much more.
Potenza RF Microneedling
New Potenza RF Microneedling with Tiger Tip™ technology performs like no topical (or even filler) ever could, actually stimulating your body’s collagen and elastin levels to treat the advanced signs of aging. Skin looks younger, firmer. And texture, tone and clarity? Smoothed, brightened and improved.
- Stimulates new collagen production to not only give you tighter, firmer-looking skin, but younger-acting skin.
- Targets blemishes for a smoother, more radiant complexion.
- Provides faster healing time than traditional Microneedling.
IPL Photofacial Treatment
A Photofacial is a treatment that uses intense pulses of light known as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which penetrate deep into the skin. This causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. This “Photo-Rejuvenation” of the face and body produces even-toned skin that reveals a more youthful appearance. Photo facials remove skin damage and address a series of unwanted skin conditions caused by heredity, reaction to medication, sun damage, hormones or other such factors.
How Do Consultations Work?
We care for your individual needs with results-oriented treatments that have been extensively researched and tested. With that being said we recommend consultations for all of our patients to make sure we are addressing your concerns, telling you more in-depth about treatment options, make sure you know how to prepare and what to expect after, and finally answer any other questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you!
