I confess to be very nervous about this procedure. But now here I am barely a day post procedure wondering why I ever waited.
Everything about the appointment was as good as it gets. The staff is incredibly friendly, accommodating and welcoming. They are also knowledgeable and helped to address my nervousness from the second I walked through the door.
Dr Maddox was fabulous. He talked me through my expectations, concerns and the procedure was fast, painless, and effective. I could not be happier with the experience and the results. Highly recommend!!!
At Thrive in Portland, we offer non-surgical facelifts available through laser therapy. This is one of our most highly requested services in our facility. This procedure is non-invasive and can help address mild to moderate skin laxity that often appears around the jawline, face, and neck. In order to achieve the effects of a surgical facelift without the cost, pain, and recovery time, patients are encouraged to consider the combination of laser and light-based technology along with medical-grade skin care products available through Thrive.
Treatments May Include:
Microdermabrasion combines the rejuvenating benefits of a facial with the renewing qualities of a deep scrub. A successful skin care treatment, microdermabrasion buffs away dry and damaged skin to reveal a fresher, younger appearance.
Light-based laser treatments offer patients an effective alternative to traditional plastic surgery with amazing results. Thrive uses Titan and Laser Genesis laser treatments, as well as Exilis. The Titan emits a pure infrared light, which prompts the reversal of the signs of aging while preserving the epidermis. The treatment also promotes long-term collagen building through its stimulation under the skin, leading to lifted, tighter, more toned skin. Laser Genesis uses a pulsed-light system to treat a range of specific issues including fine lines and wrinkles, as well as redness and scarring. Exilis is an innovative Radio Frequency treatment that smoothes and tightens skin on the face and body, and improves body contours through non-invasive fat reduction.
Dermal Optical Thermolysis, or DOT, is a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment that also addresses wrinkles, sagging, sun damage, and discoloration. We commonly use CO2 laser resurfacing in a fractionated setting, which creates thousands of microscopic perforations that immediately tighten the skin and stimulate new collagen growth with about 75 percent less recovery time compared to a full CO2 laser treatment.
Located in Portland, Thrive is proud to offer amazing non-surgical solutions for patients who want to avoid traditional plastic surgery to achieve the results of a facelift. Patients from Vancouver, Oregon City, and other surrounding cities are welcome to contact our practice to develop an appropriate wrinkle reduction plan custom-created to their needs and desires. Let Thrive help you achieve smoother, tighter, more youthful looking skin today!
