Until recently, women’s intimacy challenges from childbirth and aging have not received the same attention as men’s sexual health issues. That has changed for women in the Portland area. They can now enjoy the benefits of comfort, confidence, and pleasure with nonsurgical female rejuvenation at Thrive.

Two dimensions of female rejuvenation

Labia major (outer lips), labia minor (inner lips), or both may become enlarged. This can be the result of a difficult delivery, multiple childbirths, or the aging process. For some young women, this simply a hereditary trait. Distended labia cause discomfort during sexual relations, and pull and stretch painfully during workouts. Excess tissue might even show in form fitting clothing.

Labial remodeling is a painless treatment that shrinks, tones, and tightens external vaginal tissues. Thrive utilizes the latest instrumentation for safe, effective results without surgery. While this treatment is often referred to as “laser vaginal rejuvenation,” the procedure actually uses radiofrequency energy. It stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, building collagen in the treatment area to tighten and trim labia.


Vaginal rejuvenation

The same comfortable method treats internal vaginal issues. Usually three treatments, once per week, are needed to:

  • Reduce diameter of the vaginal opening.
  • Tighten the vaginal canal.
  • Increase natural lubrication.
  • Tighten the perineum.
  • Increase blood flow to clitoris.
  • Improve sensitivity and sexual satisfaction for both partners.
  • Reduce stress incontinence.

Thrive offers the fastest, most comfortable treatment modalities with strict safety protocols. No anesthetic is needed. You feel only a pleasant sensation of warmth, and there is virtually no recovery time. Many women experience noticeable change after the first session.

Female rejuvenation is a personal decision; an investment in your self-esteem and feminine health. Would you like to learn more about restoring youthful appearance and function to the vulvar and vaginal area? Call Thrive, Portland’s premier anti-aging center, at (503) 928-6505.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation?

Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is a painless procedure that uses laser or radiofrequency energy to shrink, tone, and tighten vaginal tissues and improve blood flow and sensitivity to the vaginal area.

How does laser vaginal rejuvenation work?

We use the latest technologies that harness the power of radiofrequency energy and lasers to heat up the tissues in the vaginal area. This energy works at the cellular level to stimulate collagen production, which in turn tightens and remodels the exterior and interior vaginal areas.

What can be treated with vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation can treat issues with both the external vaginal area and the internal vaginal tissues.

  • External tissues: Radiofrequency energy is used to remodel either the labia major, labia minor, or both if they have become enlarged due to childbirth, difficult labor and delivery, genetics, or natural aging processes.
  • Internal tissues: Using a similar technique, the internal structures of the vagina and clitoral area are tightened and toned, and blood flow is increased; it can also help reduce stress incontinence by restoring muscle tone in the pelvic area.

How can female rejuvenation help me?

Female rejuvenation is a good option for a variety of feminine issues. If you have loose skin in the labial area, it can help tighten these tissues to reduce your discomfort during sexual intercourse, exercise, and when you are wearing tight clothing. If your vaginal opening and canal have become wider over time due to childbirth or age, then this treatment can reduce the diameter for better intimate relations, as well as increase blood flow, lubrication, and sensitivity in the vagina and clitoris.

For women suffering from stress urinary incontinence, female rejuvenation can help tighten and tone the tissues in the pelvic area, helping your body naturally support the pelvic organs better. This leads to more control over your bladder and a greater level of self-confidence.

Is vaginal rejuvenation safe?

Strict safety protocols are used during every vaginal rejuvenation treatment that we provide at Thrive, and your safety is the top priority of our experienced practitioners.

What will it feel like?

The vaginal rejuvenation devices are designed to keep you comfortable during your treatment. While you will likely feel a warming sensation during the procedure, it is not painful, and anesthesia is not necessary.

Patients rarely need pain medications after the procedure either, as there is generally no pain or tenderness in the area afterwards. You may experience a larger amount of vaginal discharge after the treatment and be asked to refrain from engaging in sexual intercourse or using tampons for a few days after your treatment.

How long does it take?

Not very long! In some cases, the treatment can take as little as five minutes and you can get back to your normal day.

How much does vaginal rejuvenation cost?

The cost for your vaginal rejuvenation treatment depends on a few factors, such as what areas you are having treated, whether you are treating both internal and external tissues, and the number of treatments that are necessary to help you achieve your desired results. We typically recommend about three treatments that are spaced a week apart to help you achieve the maximum benefits, but Dr. Maddox will consult with you about your individual health and goals to help you determine the optimal number of treatments for your specific needs.

How long do results last?

Many patients have a noticeable improvement after just one treatment, and the collagen remodeling processes helps stimulate the tissues over time, so the best results are seen over the following months.

The results typically last for many months. However, the regenerated tissues may begin to become loose again over time, in which case annual maintenance treatments are recommended.

Who is a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation?

Laser vaginal rejuvenation can be a good choice for women whose vaginal structures have been stretched out due to aging, childbirth, or genetics, or who experience discomfort during sex, bike riding, or horseback riding due to their vaginal tissues. It can also be a great option for women who are suffering from urinary stress incontinence or who have reduced sensation, lubrication, and pleasure during sexual intercourse due to loose vaginal tissues.

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.
