Skin tightening treatments for men near Portland, OR let them fly under the radar

Skin Treatments For Men from doctor in Portland OR

Men are in a unique situation today; they have the ability to turn back the hands of time, but they may not want to do so in an obvious and dramatic way, such as plastic surgery. While we applaud men for taking any of the steps they deem appropriate to achieve their desired outcome, which is to look as young as they feel, we understand the need for discretion. The team at Thrive is happy to offer skin tightening and fat-reducing treatment for men in the Portland, OR area who prefer to age gracefully.

There are numerous options for smoothing and tightening the skin, and also for reducing waist circumference, and they do not have to involve surgery. In recent years, the power of radiofrequency has become well known in aesthetic medicine. Patients of Thrive can choose between Exilis and Vanquish to address areas of concern. The benefits of each include gradual (discreet) results and zero downtime.

About Exilis

Exilis radiofrequency treatment can improve body contours and rejuvenate the skin using controlled heat. As dermal tissues absorb this heat, cells are stimulated into collagen production. This is advantageous to collagen restructuring, leading to tighter, younger looking skin. Additionally, fat cells are also affected by the heat of radio frequency energy. Gradually, the affected cells are processed and eliminated by the body.

Address facial aging naturally

More men and women are leaning toward natural processes to address the effects of aging. Exilis is an excellent solution for the early signs of ageing, including drooping eyelids, under eye bags, and loss of definition around the jaw line and chin. Some of the reasons that our patients appreciate this treatment include:

  • No use of chemicals or injections to tighten the skin.
  • No maintenance or special home care is needed to achieve the desired outcome.
  • Radiofrequency is a great preventive measure to slow the progression of aging.
  • The gradual onset of results makes radiofrequency treatment ideal for the patient who doesn’t want to look “done.”

Address unwanted fat without liposuction

There are certainly cases in which liposuction may be the best option for removing accumulated fat cells from a localized area. However, many of our male patients find that concerns such as excess breast tissue, submental fullness (double chin), and other fatty deposits can be successfully eliminated without surgery. With just a few comfortable Exilis treatments, it is possible to target unwanted fat with precision radiofrequency, causing them to be “damaged” and naturally eliminated over several weeks. Benefits of non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring include:

  • Uncomplicated spot-reduction.
  • Elimination of resistant fatty deposits.
  • No dietary or lifestyle modifications are necessary.
  • No downtime.
  • Results are noticed within days, and continue to improve.

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.
