A Distinctive Difference

What sets Thrive apart as the premier anti-aging center in Portland? That distinction is due, in large part, to the inspiration and experience of Dr. Adam Maddox. He has created an environment where caring people come together with technology and artistry for amazing results. Keep reading to learn more about his unique background and vision.

Dr. Adam Maddox

Dr. Adam Maddox – Medical DirectorDr. Adam Maddox is a board-certified physician, and the founder of the popular Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR. He is considered a leader in aesthetic and anti-aging medicine. He has had a lifelong passion for helping people look and feel youthful and healthful.

The journey to integrative medicine

Like many medical students, Dr. Maddox began with a focus on general medicine and disease treatment. However, he quickly grew disillusioned with the common healthcare model, which is essentially based on disease management. He began to pursue a different path, with a focus on preventive medicine, with the belief that maintaining health, and preserving natural youthful vitality is far better than waiting for a problem to develop and then treating the symptoms.

Dr. Maddox completed his medical training in the study of naturopathic medicine. Realizing that people want to look as young as they feel, he took anti-aging treatment to the next level, by combining internal medicine with cosmetic treatments. He founded Thrive with the goal of bringing this unique anti-aging to the people of Portland and surrounding communities, and the practice quickly became known throughout the area as the go-to solution for looking and feeling great.

Areas of expertise

In keeping with his integrative approach, Dr. Maddox strives to provide multi-faceted care, addressing a wide range of internal and visible symptoms of aging. He has assembled a remarkable team of skilled professionals to deliver comprehensive care. Available treatments include body contouring, body hair removal, bio-identical hormone therapy, aesthetic facial surgery, Botox, dermal fillers, hair restoration, weight loss counseling, and much more.

Dr. Maddox believes that people deserve to live life to the fullest through the years, because aging should not be a struggle to survive, it should be an opportunity to Thrive! He and his team are respected throughout the community for their exceptional customer service, compassionate patient care, and amazing results.

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.
