For Men Thrive offers a variety of procedures and services just for men in the Portland community

For Men
Declining testosterone levels can have many negative effects on a man’s health, from fatigue to depression. Hormone replacement therapy is an option, but should bring the hormones to a healthy level rather than raise them above normal levels. Dr. Maddox explains why.

Testosterone replacement therapy is great to start looking out for men between the ages starting as early as 35, but all the way up to you know as as old as 65, sometimes even into the 70s. The reason why is because testosterone tends to decline in men and women as well as we age. Women go through menopause men go through a similar process of hormone decline called andropause and that just means the male hormone testosterone tends to decrease. We see more fatigue less motivation, we tend to put on weight a little bit more a little quicker. We lose that sex drive that that kind of motivation or vitality or zest that we used to have for life and exercising. Maybe we have some sleep disturbances a little bit of depression. So, those are things that testosterone can influence and by not doing full replacement therapy, So, we’re not trying to raise testosterone levels above and beyond what’s normal but bring them back into a healthy range, So, you can you know a male patient can get the benefits of the testosterone with the least amount of side effects.


If you are a man located in the area of Portland who is seeking cosmetic and medical services, Thrive is just the place for you! Many men think of cosmetic treatments as only being for women, but men can enjoy their benefits as well! Below is a list of some of the most common procedures available for men in our state-of-the-art facility:

Botox Cosmetic Injections

Brotox Cosmetic has been used for decades for both medical and cosmetic treatments. This neuromodulator can be injected into specific muscles of the face to reduce contractions and smooth out wrinkles and folds. The team at Thrive finds that this can provide a more youthful, relaxed appearance for both men and women when administered by a professional such as Dr. Adam Maddox.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that attracts water. When injected into the face, it can help replenish volume to restore youthfulness. Some of the dermal fillers readily available in our practice include, but are not limited to:

  • Juvéderm XC
  • Voluma XC
  • Radiesse
For Men

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

As men age, they may begin to experience a reduction in the hormone testosterone. When this occurs, it can throw off the natural balance and result in andropause (male menopause). Our practice offers testosterone replacement therapy, also known as TRT. This will require testing to diagnose the condition and determine if they can benefit from supplementation of testosterone.

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.
