Why Portland, OR patients love antiaging treatment with Juvéderm injections

Antiaging treatment with Juvéderm injections

Juvéderm injections are among the most requested cosmetic treatments in Portland, OR. This popular dermal filler is made by Allergan, the company that brought us Botox. What makes it so popular? There are many answers to that question.

Effective wrinkle treatment

As facial volume disappears, wrinkles begin to appear. At first, you might notice a few lines and a bit of saggy skin. Gradually, well defined folds develop, including those surrounding the mouth like parenthesis. Juvéderm XC is FDA-approved for correction of these unwelcome parentheses, as well as marionette lines, which extend to the chin.

Benefits beyond anti-aging

Juvéderm is best known for correcting age-related volume loss. However, it is also a great option for:

  • Adding volume to naturally thin lips
  • Correcting asymmetry or disproportion of facial features
  • Filling in deep acne scars
  • Virtually anywhere additional volume is needed

Natural looking results

We understand the importance of subtle details in cosmetic treatment. No one wants to look like a sculpture, with rigid or disproportionate features. Instead, you want to look natural, relaxed, and young. Juvéderm is an ultra-smooth gel that can add volume while maintaining elegant and natural looking facial contours.

Ideal complementary treatment

Did you have Botox injections to erase those stubborn crow’s feet and forehead lines? Now your upper face looks years younger, but the lower area tells a different story. A dermal filler such as Juvéderm is the perfect solution to this common situation. Because fillers and Botox address different types of wrinkles, they make wonderful companion treatments for comprehensive anti-aging.

No downtime

Does your work schedule and social calendar have room for a couple weeks of downtime? If the answer is a resounding, “No,” then Juvéderm is probably a great choice! This ultra-convenient procedure takes just minutes to administer, and it allows you to resume your life immediately. Common side effects may include swelling, redness, or bruising, but they are generally mild and fade within a few days. Since Juvéderm is nonsurgical and leaves no wounds to heal, the visible effects can safely be hidden with makeup.

No commitment

Natural looking results - Juvéderm Injections Treatment Portland ORYou know you want to look younger, and cosmetic treatment sounds like a great idea. Yet, it’s hard to be certain, especially if you are new to fillers. Many first time Juvéderm patients ask what happens if they don’t like the results. The answer is simple. They can be reversed. Any hyaluronic acid filler, including Juvéderm, can be dissolved with subsequent injections of hyaluronidase. While this fact is comforting to uncertain new patients, they tend to lose interest in reversal as soon as they experience the beauty of Juvéderm. Instead, they begin asking how they can extend the results, which brings us to the next great benefit of this treatment.

Lasting youth

Juvéderm injections are usually expected to last up to one full year, though every patient metabolizes fillers at a different rate. Your results may last a little longer or fade a little sooner. However, it is easy to maintain your new youthful appearance with touch up treatments. These are scheduled according to your specific needs.

Extreme comfort

Most patients prefer needles over scalpels. However, you might not expect injections to be a very comfortable process. Juvéderm XC has a special ingredient that is designed to literally take the pain out of wrinkle treatment. The formula contains a small amount of Lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs the area as it is injected.

Targeted treatment

One dermal filler can’t do everything. A malleable, subtle formula is ideal for delicate lip augmentation, while correction of sunken cheeks requires a formula resilient enough to hold its shape even in deep injections. Whatever your needs, Juvéderm has you covered! This is not just one filler. It is a whole collection of premier formulas, including

  • Voluma XC
  • Volbella XC
  • Vollure XC
  •  Ultra XC
  • The original, Juvéderm XC

Experienced providers are just a phone call away

Juvéderm is a truly wonderful product. However, the quality of the product only accounts for part of the quality of your results. The other essential aspect in this equation is the skill of the injector. Dr. Maddox has more than 15 years of experience in aesthetic medicine and is well known throughout Portland for his advanced skills. Just call Thrive at (503) 928-6505 to schedule your appointment.

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.
