Portland residents ask “Is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure safe?”

Safe non-surgical skin tightening procedure from doctor in in Portland

Do you have unwanted sagging skin? Through the natural aging process, the skin on the face and body loses its firmness and elasticity. It becomes loose leading to fine lines and wrinkles which can make individuals appear even older. Located in Portland, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive offer Exilis for a non-surgical skin tightening procedure. This tissue tightening treatment provides patients with a safe, non-invasive option to treat lax skin while removing unwanted fat.

How Exilis works

Exilis transmits energy to heat the skin shrinking fat cells while contracting and tightening the skin. Collagen, which is a crucial building block of the skin, is stimulated as well. Using radiofrequency energy, skin on the face and body is contoured and tightened. The entire procedure is safe, efficient, and comfortable for the patient. An Energy Flow Control system is utilized to keep the patient comfortable throughout the process while also maintaining uniform energy pulses for an effective treatment. Skin tightening and body contouring procedures are fast and effective. Skin on the face, chest, buttocks, legs, arms, abdomen, hands, and knees can be treated.

Advantages

No longer is it necessary to undergo surgery to achieve the desired look. Exilis brings about numerous advantages for non-invasive skin tightening.

  • This advanced technology allows for fewer needed treatments versus other non-invasive methods.
  • Individual treatments only take 30-45 minutes and are painless.
  • A series of treatments is needed but results may be noticeable after a single session. At the completion of the series, dramatic improvement can be seen.
  • Adults of any age and skin type may be considered for the treatment. An evaluation is necessary to determine how effective the procedure may be.
  • As it is a non-surgical procedure, there is no need for needles or general anesthesia.
  • Less expensive than cosmetic surgery.
  • The cooling system allows for the safe treatment of all areas of the body.

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.
