Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center
Rating: 5 Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center - Reviewd By Paitent


I was referred to Dr. Maddox by a friend for testosterone therapy. Dr. Maddox exceeded my expectations. Every time I see him he takes the time to explain and address all my questions and concerns. His staff is super friendly and they make me feel like a person and not just another patient at a doctors office. Highly recommended.

Rosacea & Redness Reduction

Rosacea is a skin disorder that millions of people experience. This condition is similar to acne in that skin appears irritated and red, and can develop tiny red pimples. The difference between the two is that we have yet to discover a clear cause of rosacea. People with this disorder may experience:
  • Generalized redness on the face, or red bumps
  • Pustules
  • Quick to flush or blush
  • Visible blood vessels
  • A feeling of burning or stinging on the skin
  • High sensitivity of the skin
  • Dry, irritated eyes
At Thrive's Portland office, we offer a variety of treatment options to address the redness and irritation that comes with rosacea. Our treatments are designed around your unique needs, skin type and condition, and the severity of redness to be treated.

We use the most innovative laser treatments for rosacea and redness reduction that require minimal downtime but are still safe and very effective. Our integrative approach uses a combination of laser therapies with topical and oral treatments. 

After just a few treatments, most patients see a visible reduction in their redness and rosacea. It is common for us to recommend an initial series of five laser treatments for optimal results. Typically, there is minimal downtime but some residual redness can last after your treatment. We recommend limiting sun exposure to the treatment areas for one to two weeks. Ask us about our post laser care sunscreen.

"Love this professional group of folks, and so will you. Expect to be treated like an individual. This is not an assembly line! Wouldn't trust myself to anyone else. Been going to Thrive for several years and will continue to!" - Ashleigh R.

Typically, a combination of lasers and products is the best solution to treat redness. SkinMedica’s Redness Relief Calmplex is a product we often recommend to patients dealing with rosacea. SkinMedica’s Redness Relief Calmplex restores the skin’s barrier and addresses underlying causes of redness leaving radiant looking skin. In addition, we always recommend post-laser care sunscreen to protect your beautiful new skin.

There are many options for rosacea treatment and we will work with our patients from Portland and surrounding areas like Beaverton to develop a custom treatment plan.
