Dr. Adam Maddox – Medical Director

Dr. Adam Maddox – Medical DirectorDr. Maddox is a board-certified physician, leading in the field of integrative anti-aging and aesthetic medicine. From the time he was young, Dr. Maddox had a strong desire to help people maintain optimal health as they grew older. Growing up, he was keenly aware of the reality of disease and aging, watching many family members and friends become ill, and experience a diminished drive for life. From his sense of empathy, grew a personal interest in preventative medicine and general wellness. Dr. Maddox changed course during his medical training, switching from allopathic to naturopathic medicine due to his dissatisfaction with the conventional methods of treating disease, rather than preventing it. He completed his naturopathic medical training right here in Portland.

Based on the philosophy he attained in studying naturopathic medicine, Dr. Maddox has designed individualized forms of treatment that integrate advanced anti-aging laser and light therapies with internal medicine developed specifically for anti-aging. He also has a special interest in the capabilities of scientifically proven cosmeceuticals like Botox, Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and provide testosterone replacement therapy for men.

Dr. Maddox, who trains other medical professionals on injectable techniques, has been featured in Portland Monthly, and on KGW/Channel 8, KPTV/Fox 12, and KATU’s AM Northwest.

Dr. Maddox graduated with honors from the Northern Arizona University before completing a four-year medical program at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. He is the founder and medical director of Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR.

miraDry® TREATMENT

FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.

miraDry® TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

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,

Yeah,

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,

Yeah.

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.
Exactly

Right,

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,

Yeah,

Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.

Amazing.

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.
