Portland area doctor describes the Vanquish skin treatment

Patients in Portland ready to address skin laxity and unwanted fat cells are encouraged to contact Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive. Our practice offers a non-invasive solution to body contouring called Vanquish.

Vanquish is a skin treatment that is done to help reduce fat deposits and tighten the skin. It is typically performed on the abdomen as an alternative to liposuction or a surgical tummy tuck. It can help with trimming inches off the abdomen, tightening the skin after pregnancy, or dealing with love handles that may make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance.

Vanquish works by heating the area with radio frequency energy, which targets the fat cells beneath the skin to shrink them and allow the body to filter them out naturally. At the same time, it stimulates collagen production, which helps tighten and tone the skin. Patients rest in the treatment chair on their back as the Vanquish panels are set up above the body for no-contact treatment. They rest while the radio frequency energy is delivered. Patients describe a warming sensation but are otherwise comfortable during the procedure.

For optimum results, patients are urged to have several treatments done over the course of a number of weeks. Dr. Adam Maddox can discuss with patients during their initial consultation appointment how many treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the results they desire. Most patients benefit from anywhere between four to six treatments booked six weeks apart.

Over the course of time, patients will notice the gradual results. They may lose inches around their abdomen and notice their clothing becomes looser. They notice less skin laxity and fewer wrinkles in the area thanks to the collagen production tightening the skin. Many patients are extremely satisfied with the results that have been achieved with the use of Vanquish without having to go “under the knife” for surgical intervention.

If you are ready to improve the contours of your body and address skin laxity, contact Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in the Portland area to learn more about this procedure and discover how it can dramatically enhance your body’s appearance. We welcome new patients to our practice to learn about the many solutions available through Thrive.
