Get Rid of Troublesome Fat with the Vanquish Body Sculpting treatment in Portland, OR

Vanquish Body Sculpting in Portland OR area

Dr. Adam Maddox is a board-certified physician in Portland, OR who specializes in anti-aging and aesthetic medicine and he would love to hear from you. Are you noticing stubborn fat deposits that you just can’t seem to get rid of even with proper diet and exercise? These fat deposits you are noticing may not be anything you can control. The tendency to develop these pockets of fat and their location may be a product of heredity. If you would like to act against this fat development, then the Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center should be your next call. At Thrive, we employ non-invasive body sculpting treatments called Vanquish ME Plus and Vanquish Flex ME Plus. There comes a time when the only answer to eliminating this fatty buildup is to have it removed.

The Vanquish treatments are a revolution in non-invasive fat tissue removal. You will be able to sit comfortably and relax while your troublesome fat is being targeted and disrupted. The treatment is short and pleasant and covers your abdominal region from flank to flank. After just a few treatments, you will have the body shape you’ve dreamed of having.

Fat Removal – Why Do You Need It?

Many of us desire a body shape that is considered thin or athletic looking. Better contours, flat abs or hips, and thighs that are narrow are traits that our patients tend to desire. As we age, our bodies begin to betray us, and we begin noticing excess fat around the belly and those “love handles” begin to show. Fat can also begin accumulating in or along the neck and chin. These are just a few reasons why patients will seek out fat removal as a solution.

Using the Vanquish ME Plus treatment offers the following advantages:

  • Offers the largest treatment area of any fat reduction procedure available
  • The procedure is comfortable, non-invasive and pain-free
  • No anesthesia, injections, or cutting is required, eliminating sutures or scars
  • No downtime required
  • FDA approved for safety
  • Administered by trained and certified clinicians

The Vanquish ME Plus Procedure

The Vanquish ME Plus Procedure in Portland OR area

Dr. Maddox offers a new, non-invasive liposuction option called Vanquish. Vanquish is a non-invasive deep tissue heating procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy technology to destroy those troublesome fat cells from the abdomen and flanks. The process has been approved by the FDA as a safe option for fat removal. Your skin is heated (via radiofrequency) to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and the fat to 120 degrees. This heat causes the fat to rupture and then die via a process called apoptosis. These dead cells are then eliminated from your body by your immune system.

An alternative to traditional liposuction, Vanquish requires no anesthesia, is no-tough (incision-free) and causes no pain. For best results, multiple treatments are recommended (typically 3-4 sessions) with results becoming apparent after the initial treatment. Each treatment will last about half an hour, but that can fluctuate and is dependent on how quickly your skin and underlying fat take to reach the desired temperatures needed for an effective treatment.

Vanquish Flex ME Plus

Dr. Maddox also offers the Vanquish Flex ME Plus procedure to patients looking to eliminate fat and restore contour to their legs and thighs. The process is very similar and offers all the same advantages as Vanquish ME Plus, it just focuses on the patient’s leg and thigh area specifically. Radiofrequency energy is applied to the trouble areas at a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. This temperature has been proven to produce the desired results without any damage occurring to the skin. Consecutive treatments have been shown to reduce anywhere from a half to two inches in the thighs. Vanquish Flex ME Plus provides superior results for anybody looking for slimmer and more properly contoured legs and thighs.

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.
