Portland, OR women discover the befits of vaginal and labial rejuvenation treatment

Happy woman lay down on the bed

The women of Portland, OR are living longer, healthier, more active lives than ever. Thanks to a vast array of available cosmetic treatments, they are not only feeling younger but also looking younger. However, until recently, the effects of age on feminine health were rarely discussed and difficult to treat. That all changed with the introduction of nonsurgical vaginal and labial rejuvenation.

The untold impact of time

Aging is a much-discussed topic. Over time, skin gets drier, and production of important components such as collagen slows down. Additionally, the underlying fatty layer thins, and other tissues begin to break down. Meanwhile, the effects of skin injuries or damage through the years can accumulate. You have probably heard those things many times, and you most likely know that they lead to facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and other cosmetic concerns. What is rarely discussed – and therefore comes as an unwelcome surprise to many women – is that genital tissues undergo similar changes.

Like other areas of the body, the vagina and labia become laxer and less elastic over time. However, these tissues are subject to damages that the rest of the body is not. Many women have scarring or permanently stretched tissue associated with natural childbirth. Additionally, along with hot flashes, mood swings, and other symptoms of menopause, the hormonal changes cause a significant reduction in vaginal blood flow.

These and other factors can lead to symptoms including:

  • Urinary stress incontinence (leaking when you laugh or cough)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Discomfort or lack of sensation during sex
  • Loss of tissue plumpness and color
  • Atrophy of tissue

Understanding your options

Historically, issues of feminine health, comfort, and quality of life were largely ignored. In recent decades, awareness and medical treatments have been gradually improving, but the only viable options were labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. These are cosmetic surgical techniques, which tighten, reposition, and if necessary, remove tissue.

If you think that labiaplasty and vaginoplasty sound very similar to facelift, neck lift, tummy tuck, and other cosmetic plastic surgeries, you are correct. Like other surgeries, they help correct tissue damage and effects of aging, but they also involve certain risks and required downtime. Until very recently there was a huge difference in the available alternatives.

For many years, patients who didn’t want surgery on the face or body could opt for noninvasive treatment with laser, radiofrequency, ultrasound, or other technologies. Countless skin tightening and rejuvenation devices and techniques have been extensively tested in clinical trials, earning FDA approval or clearance. Each of those trials and approvals focused on a specific problem or area of the body. Real-world application of these treatments is much broader in scope, but anything not specifically listed in the FDA ruling-is considered “off label.”

With extensive use and consistent results, it became apparent that most tissue rejuvenation methods could be used virtually anywhere on the body, even the most delicate areas. One of the most recent, and most exciting applications of this technology is feminine rejuvenation. Leading companies have begun developing devices specifically designed for safe and effective rejuvenation of the vagina and labia.

Until the lengthy process of gaining FDA approval is completed, feminine rejuvenation is considered and “off label” treatment. Therefore, we do not yet have statistics about the results of these treatments. However, according to the feedback we’re received from patients, the process is exceptionally comfortable, with significant cosmetic and functional improvement.

What does nonsurgical vaginal or labial rejuvenation involve?

The exact procedure depends on the type of device used. There are several on the market, which have been designed specifically for these procedures. Here at Thrive, we use Ultrafem 360 by Exilis, an industry leader in energy-based rejuvenation technology. It offers the shortest possible treatment time, with an average session taking just eight minutes. Additionally, precision temperature control reduces the risk of discomfort and post-treatment infection.

There is no need for pain medication, because the process is quite gentle. Tissue temperature is increased to 40 degrees Celsius, increasing blood flow and awakening collagen production. Most patients report a distinct feeling of warmth, but they do not describe it as painful. There is no downtime, and many women have treatment during their lunchbreaks with an immediate return to work. A series of three or more treatments is usually needed in order to achieve optimal improvement.

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.
