Vancouver, WA doctor describes effective skin tightening procedures such as Exilis

Skin Tightening Procedures from doctor in Vancouver WA

Patients in and around the area of Vancouver, WA who are interested in achieving more youthful skin are welcome to contact the team of Thrive and speak with Dr. Adam Maddox, a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist ready to assist patients in looking and feeling their best. Along with treatments such as hormone replacement therapy and hair restoration treatments, he also provides a wide range of non-invasive body and face rejuvenation options to his patients. Instead of undergoing intensive plastic surgery for a face or neck lift; patients who are seeking skin-tightening procedures may be better suited for a treatment called Exilis.

Exilis is a revolutionary method of tightening the skin and reducing skin laxity without patients having to go “under the knife.” This treatment uses radio frequency energy that can stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen loss is common after the age of 30 as the body naturally begins to lose youthful volume. The results of collagen loss include skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This can make patients look older than they feel and it often becomes a source of discontent. Instead of using surgery to address the aging skin, many patients find Exilis to be a wonderful alternative.

Exilis treatment is administered by Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive and is done during a simple, easy appointment. The device is adjusted to each individual patient for the proper results. It is moved along the skin where it will heat the deeper layers to achieve stimulation of the collagen. While results are not immediate, they are noticed over several weeks and months as the skin changes gradually. Fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable, and the skin is not nearly as loose as it once was. Many patients use this treatment on the face and neck, areas where skin laxity is typically more obvious and needs to be improved for better aesthetics.

Dr. Adam Maddox and the team of Thrive welcome patients in and around the area of Vancouver, Washington. Contact us today to book a consultation appointment and find out what sets our practice apart from the rest!

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.
