It is important to us that we help you look and feel your best and our fat reduction treatments are designed to do just that. Our team of physicians and surgeons has developed a proprietary non-surgical treatment for fat reduction and body contouring that you can only find at Thrive.
The Exilis treatment performed in our Portland, OR anti-aging center is an excellent skin tightening and body contouring solution. It gently heats deep tissues, while maintaining a safe and comfortable skin temperature. Radio frequency energy passes through the surface layer of skin, and creates a thermal reaction at the targeted depth. When used for skin tightening, it helps stimulate collagen remodeling, and in body contouring, it is used to melt stubborn pockets of fat.
As a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, it can help reduce stubborn areas of fat that may not respond to diet and exercise. Thrive’s minimally invasive Exilis fat reduction solution can be used to treat the:
- Love handles or flanks
- Back of thighs
- Inner thighs
- Chin, jowls
- . . . and much more!
Exilis, based on innovative radio frequency energy, is a non-invasive fat reduction, skin-tightening treatment that has been proven safe and effective. Depending on your individual needs, a series of sessions is usually recommended for optimal improvement. However, our patients from Lake Oswego, Tigard, and other areas near Portland find Exilis treatments to be quite comfortable, with astonishing results beginning after just one treatment. Upon completion of a treatment program designed around your unique needs, it is possible to experience a loss in inches that is very noticeable.

Portland, OR physician explains body contouring using Exilis and the Vanquish FLEX applicator
Love handles, muffin top, and banana roll sound cute but each refers to an unwanted, troublesome area of fat. In Portland, OR, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive offer Exilis and Vanquish FLEX applicator treatments for non-invasive fat removal and body contouring. We offer both treatments as part of our commitment to providing effective facial and body rejuvenation techniques. During your consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Exilis Elite is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) device that focuses heat on varying depths of tissue. Each treatment can be customized for each patient depending on the need for skin tightening, fat reduction, or both. Exilis transmits energy to heat the skin. The energy shrinks fat cells, causes the skin to contract and tighten, and stimulates collagen production. The Exilis treatment utilizes radiofrequency technology to contour the body and tighten skin. Using an Energy Flow Control system maintains the safety of the procedure and keeps the patient comfortable. This system provides fast, effective treatments.
The Vanquish system is an innovative, non-invasive fat reduction method. Stubborn pockets of fat are treated using radiofrequency energy to target the cells. The cells are heated to 120 degrees which destroys them so they can be eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. This advanced system does not require contact with the body so treatment is comfortable. The Vanquish FLEX applicator is used on the thighs slimming the saddlebags in the outer thigh area.
Exilis radiofrequency energy targets subcutaneous fat that sits below the skin and above the skeletal muscle. The energy can penetrate at the proper depth to treat fat cells. The built-in cooling device makes the procedure safe for skin tightening and reducing excess fat nearly anywhere on the body. Treated areas include:
- Flanks or love handles
The Vanquish FLEX system also uses RF energy to targets fat cells without damaging the skin or muscles. The Vanquish FLEX applicator slims the saddlebags on the outer thighs.
At Thrive, we offer Exilis and Vanquish systems for versatility. While both use radiofrequency technology, Exilis makes contact with the skin and is moved in small circular motions during the treatment. It can be used on multiple body surfaces, including the face. It is used for fat reduction, skin tightening, or both. Vanquish does not require direct skin contact and is most effective for fat reduction on the thighs.
