You can enjoy a beautiful body with the predictable results of Exilis Ultra contouring in Portland

Portland, OR patients enjoy no downtime and predictable results from Exilis Ultra body contouring treatment.

If you want to enjoy showing off your curves, ask us about Exilis Ultra. It is a noninvasive procedure with beautiful, predictable results – and it is available right here at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR. Exilis Ultra is unique in its dual approach to body contouring, with the ability to tighten skin as well as reduce stubborn areas of fat.

The science behind Exilis Ultra

BTL, the maker of Exilis Ultra, has long been an industry leader in noninvasive aesthetic devices. The first incarnation of Exilis received FDA clearance more than a decade ago, and quickly earned a reputation for excellence in safety and results. Since then, Exilis Ultra has only improved!

The key to predictability of results and patient comfort is precision. That is something Exilis Ultra has down to a science, quite literally.

  • Real Time monitoring – RF (radiofrequency) energy moves more easily through some types of tissue than others, a factor known as energy impedance. Exilis Ultra has a built-in intelligent monitoring system, which measures impedance hundreds of times each second. Therefore, the device “knows” instantly when it moves from the fatty area below the chin to the thin layer of tissue over the jaw, and when it breaks contact with skin.
  • Automatic recalibration – Not only does Exilis Ultra measure impedance, it also adjusts the flow of energy accordingly. It is designed to automatically optimize treatment as the device moves across different areas. If the treatment head is not in full contact with skin, energy immediately stops flowing. This is important because it prevents uncomfortable energy arcing and sparking that could otherwise occur.
  • Energy Flow Control (EFC) – In this age of electronics, you are probably familiar with surge protectors, which keep electrical power spikes from harming your stereo to computer. Exilis Ultra has created an equivalent technology for protecting your skin from RF energy spikes. Therefore, the device delivers a smooth and consistent flow of energy, improving the comfort, safety, and predictability of results.
  • Temperature control – The therapeutic benefits of RF energy are the result of heating tissue. It works to melt fat, tighten lax fibers, and stimulate collagen remodeling. If the temperature is too low, results will be diminished, but, too much heat will cause patient discomfort, or even risk burns. Achieving optimal safety and efficacy requires a delicate balance, which Exilis Ultra performs beautifully. Integrated temperature monitoring, and heating and cooling features ensure a stable, and ideal, temperature throughout treatment.

Putting the science to work for you – what Exilis Ultra can accomplish

Whether you have one little problem area, or you seek total body recontouring, Exilis Ultra can be an excellent choice. It is quite literally a head-to-toe solution, powerful enough to sculpt your body and gentle enough to tighten delicate facial skin.

Exilis Ultra has become a preferred solution among patients who don’t want, or are not ready for, surgery. However, it is important to understand that Exilis Ultra will not mimic the results of a surgical face or body lift. Because excess tissue can be removed, surgery achieves the most dramatic results, especially for patients with extreme sagging. Exilis Ultra works in a different way, reducing laxity from the inside out. It works with your body, firming tissue and stimulating collagen production.

Exilis Ultra has become a preferred solution among patients who don’t want, or are not ready for, surgery.

During your initial consultation we will discuss your cosmetic concerns and problem areas, as well as what you hope to achieve. Your provider will also explain what Exilis Ultra can and cannot accomplish, to ensure that you have realistic expectations. Due to the highly predictable nature of Exilis Ultra, your provider can help you understand what to expect so that you can make an informed decision.

If you choose Exilis Ultra, we will recommend a treatment schedule based on your goals. Because this procedure triggers natural processes within the body, it does not create instant and dramatic change. You may notice a bit of improvement right after a session, but the true magic of Exilis Ultra happens gradually and naturally. The treated area becomes slimmer, smoother, and firmer as the days and weeks pass. Full results develop within two or three months after the final treatment.

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.
