Reduce fat on your body, arms, neck, or back with Exilis, the RF technology.

Lift & Tighten Skin
As this video shows, Exilis, the newest radio frequency device approved by the FDA can tighten skin on the body, the arms, the back, and the neck. It can re-contour and reduce fat and the procedure is painless.

This is something that’s also known. This is, this is, this tightens the entire body right? Well this is something great. This is the newest radio frequency device approved by the FDA. It’s called Exilis. You can tighten skin on the body, the arms, the back of the neck. Does this replace liposuction? No, it doesn’t replace liposuction, but you can’t re-contour the fat and reduce the fat. What’s so nice about the device is it’s pretty much painless. You do it every two weeks for about four times, you see the results after the second treatment, you simply scan the skin. It tells you how warm the skin is getting by the temperature, and you can also change the energy levels where you’re cooling the skin and heating the fat to reduce and take off inches. It’s not hurting you. Come on, it’s great. This is reduced you in here. Yes, we have some before and after pictures of the. A lot yeah, yeah. Patient, So, you’re tightening and you’re reducing and removing inches. Notice it before and after notice the improvement in the love handles and this is great because you can use virtually have no pain when you do the procedure. Patient comes in, they leave. They’re fine, we thank you doctor Brandt. Soon as this is over, I’m going to do everything that’s here right now.

The skin is the first thing that shows the signs of aging. Due to loose and sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and folds may appear on the body and face. This organ covers the entire body and can make many patients look older than they really are, causing a loss in self-confidence.

Skin laxity may make patients feel as though they can no longer achieve a more youthful appearance, but this is not true! At Thrive, we know that collagen and elastin loss can reduce volume over time. These substances are necessary to keep the skin supple, smooth, and soft. Without collagen and elastin, patients begin to experience bags under their eyes, droopy jowls, and fine lines and wrinkles which can become a serious concern.

There are a wide range of treatments available to help patients address the negative consequences of skin laxity. Loose skin can be improved with laser treatments, dermal fillers, and even topical therapies. These can be used to promote collagen production, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and completely rejuvenate a tired appearance.

Lifting and tightening of the skin does not always require patients to undergo cosmetic surgery. We provide non-surgical solutions to help in stimulating collagen formation deep within the skin on the face and body. These often require minimal to no recovery time and are capable of accomplishing dramatic results that are clearly noticeable. One of these treatments is Exilis. Exilis is an innovative solution to skin tightening specific areas of the face and body.

Lift & Tighten

Exilis uses radio frequency energy that helps in encouraging collagen production with warmth that affects the tissues underneath the upper layer of the skin. Patients from Portland and surrounding areas like Oregon City and Vancouver will see dramatic results from just a single Exilis treatment which can be used in addressing areas including the:

  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Thighs
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Hands
  • Neck

One or more treatments can be used to naturally eliminate unwanted fat in these areas of the body, improving contours and allowing patients to enjoy smoother, more beautiful skin.

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.
