Portland, OR patients are discovering a new, nonsurgical way to redefine their body shapes with Vanquish ME Plus treatment from Thrive

Vanquish ME Plus from Thrive is the amazing body sculpting system that has Portland, OR talking! It can shape and tighten all those troublesome spots, giving you the toned and contoured look that you’ve been seeking. Best of all, this wonderful treatment can accomplish all of this without surgery and without downtime.

How Vanquish makes the inches vanish

Vanquish by BTL was one of the early fat melting technologies to hit the market, and now it is better than ever. The second generation Vanquish ME system is better and more flexible than ever. It uses a non-contact system to deliver precise amounts of radiofrequency energy to melt away unwanted fat.

The benefits include:

  • Appropriate for anybody – Unlike most noninvasive fat reduction technologies, Vanquish is not limited to individuals with a BMI of 30 or less.
  • Gentle and comfortable – Most patients experience no pain or discomfort during treatment, and no subsequent downtime.
  • Minimal, if any, side effects – You might notice mild tenderness or redness, but it typically fades within a few hours to days.
  • Convenient “lunchtime” procedure – Each treatment takes an average of 30 minutes.
  • Fast, reliable results – Advanced Vanquish technology works faster than most fat melting systems, with some patients seeing results after just one session.
  • Flexible and efficient – The revolutionary Vanquish Flex applicator enables precise contouring even in small areas.

Total body contouring with Vanquish ME Plus

Fat is not the only factor affecting your body shape – skin laxity also plays an important role. With time, production of colleen and elastin slows while existing fibers stretch. When fat pockets cause bulges, the stretching of skin is exacerbated.

In reality, changes in body shape are not about skin or fat – it is about both, along with other factors. Our comprehensive body sculpting protocol includes Exilis Ultra tissue tightening in conjunction with Vanquish Me. The result is a new you, without surgery and typically no downtime.

This unique protocol is designed for total body transformation, with minimal disruption to your busy schedule. The treatment is completed in a series of appointments. The exact number of sessions needed will vary from one patient to the next, depending on each person’s specific needs.

We begin with Vanquish ME for powerful fat melting to shrink unwanted bulges and bumps. This is followed by Exilis Elite, which also melts fat but truly excels in tissue tightening. In conjunction, the dynamic duo can reduce inches, smooth and shape contours, reduce sagging, and give you the body shape you’ve always wanted.

What is Exilis Elite?

Vanquish ME Plus from Thrive is the amazing body sculpting system that has Portland

Exilis is a different type of noninvasive contouring treatment, which primarily focuses on firming and tightening saggy tissue. It combines therapeutic radiofrequency and ultrasound technologies to effectively smooth away problem areas. This system uses a multifaceted approach, firming up weak fibers, stimulating new collagen production, and liquifying localized fat cells.

The benefits of Exilis include:

  • Gentle and powerful – Exilis is strong enough for use on larger areas, and gentle enough for facial treatment.
  • Tighten and renew skin – Targeted energy delivery promotes production of new collagen and elastin for rejuvenation from within.
  • Convenient – Exilis Elite has minimal side effects and no downtime.
  • Tighten lax skin – Targeted thermal action contracts fibers in tissue, effectively improving elasticity to firm skin.
  • Renew – This treatment stimulates the development of new collagen, triggering anti-aging from within.

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.
