Reduce your body fat and contour your body with Vanquish™ ME in Portland, OR

Reduce Your Fat With Vanquish in Portland area

Almost everyone stores extra unwanted fat in their thighs, abdominal area, or both, and oftentimes, a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen can do little to make that fat budge. That’s where the revolutionary new body contouring technology, Vanquish™ ME, comes in! With Vanquish ME, you can reduce your body fat in these areas safely and comfortably without surgery, injections, or other invasive procedures. The professional team at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center is excited to offer this therapy to its Portland, OR area clients.

What is Vanquish ME?

Created by the cosmetic technology company BTL, Vanquish ME is an effective, non-surgical body contouring treatment that has been proven to kill fat using radio-frequency technology. It is safe and has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the reduction of fat in the thighs and abdominal area. Vanquish offers patients numerous benefits:

  • It has been proven to be effective at reducing your fat
  • The treatment is truly non-invasive, with no downtime – you can return to work right after your treatment
  • Vanquish can be used on larger treatment areas than other body sculpting technologies such as CoolSculpt
  • Instead of needing to restrict movement after your Vanquish treatment, which is necessary with some other body contouring technologies, exercise is actually encouraged to help your body eliminate the treated fat cells
  • It is painless and requires no anesthesia, incisions, injections, or discomfort; in fact, the applicator does not even touch your skin during treatment
  • The treatment sessions only last about 30 minutes
  • After a series of treatments, up to two to four inches can be lost in the areas that were treated
  • It is affordable
  • The results can last forever when you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine

How it works

In a series of four to eight sessions, the Vanquish device emits radio-frequency energy to heat the fat cells in the desired treatment area to about 41 degrees Celsius. When the fat cells are heated to this temperature, they transform into lipids, at which point your body naturally flushes them from the body as waste products. Vanquish does not harm your surrounding tissues, skin, or muscle in this process. After your treatment, only very minor side effects typically occur, such as temporary redness, swelling, or the feeling of warmth in the treatment area. Because your body needs to metabolize the treated fat cells, results are usually first noticeable about three weeks after your first treatment, and you’ll see your final results about 30 days after your final session.

Who is a good candidate

Who is a good candidate for Vanquish ME in Portland, OR area

Vanquish ME works best on patients who already maintain a healthy lifestyle and only have some extra body fat they’d like to eliminate, but it does not have any BMI restrictions like other body contouring treatments do. It does not penetrate below the muscle, so it cannot eliminate visceral fat that accumulates around your body’s organs. Implantable devices that contain metals, such as hip replacements or copper intrauterine devices (IUDs), interfere with the machine’s energy; if you have one of these devices, the team at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center will discuss alternative options with you.

Preparing for your treatment

The treatment works best if you are well-hydrated because the radiofrequency targets the cells better if they have water in them. Other than making sure you drink ample water prior to your procedure, there are no preparations or restrictions necessary prior to your Vanquish treatments!

NEW Vanquish ME Plus

Thrive is pleased to offer an exclusive new body contouring protocol called Vanquish ME Plus. We utilize Vanquish ME technology along with Cellutone and Exilis Ultra to achieve unparalleled results that cannot be achieved with one of these technologies alone. When used together, we can help you kill the fat cells, tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite in the treatment area.

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.
