Fox Vein & Laser Experts Diagnostic & Treatment Center
For years, Fox Vein and Laser Experts has been at the forefront of vein therapy and laser procedures. Around five years ago, Dr. Fox expanded the practice to include many non-invasive cutting-edge procedures such as microneedling, tattoo removal, hydrofacials, PRP, hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, peels, lasers and so much more. Fox Vein & Laser Experts has been an industry leader through the years, with the best equipment and services offered. In recent times, the practice has expanded, now offering even more cutting-edge treatments. They are one of the first practices in the United States to offer Physiq and Virtue RF, two machines by Cartessa Aesthetics that provide FDA-approved, safe and non-invasive treatments that require little to no down time, aimed to help you look your very best.
Physiq is the best in non-invasive body treatments to rid you of those hard-to-treat areas that weight loss and diet leave untouched. This new state-of-the-art machine uses four pads to treat multiple areas of the body at once, resulting in a leaner, more sleek and toned physique. This pain-free treatment is highly effective and has no down-time, unlike plastic surgery procedures like tummy tucks and liposuction. No anesthetic is necessary and it is extremely effective and affordable. Many other body contouring machines in the industry are extremely uncomfortable and do not always have the best results. Physiq is the first to use STEP technology (Sequential Thermal and Electrical Pulse) muscle stimulation with laser lipolysis in a sequential manner with contact cooling. The patient can actually control the energy and comfort level themselves, which is the main reason why the procedure is relatively pain-free and requires no down time. It can treat multiple body parts at once, including the inner thighs, buttocks, abdominals and flanks, just to name a few.
The machine, made for Cartessa by Europe’s leading laser manufacturer, Deka, is already being hailed as the newest and best in body contouring and will quickly be-come an industry leader. Experts recommend five sessions, each spaced one week apart, for optimal results. The treatment sessions are faster and more comfortable than other body contouring ma-chines. Fox Vein & Laser Experts is now offering Physiq at its Hollywood location.
Fox Vein & Laser Experts is also one of the first in the country to offer the Virtue RF. This machine takes microneedling to a whole new level. It is faster, more customizable and less painful than its predecessors. This machine uses 36 gold coated needles at one of three treatment speeds with robotic precision delivery to provide the best microneedling radiofrequency treatment in the industry. It provides immediate results with little to no down time. The results improve over time as your body continues to build collagen and elastin to improve your appearance. It is used to shrink pore size, help skin laxity, improve fine lines and wrinkles, build collagen and elastin, improve scars, especially those caused by acne and help improve the appearance of stretch marks. It can also be used with PRP or a proprietary stem cell system to help with hair loss. Only the Virtue RF pairs the treatment with LED red or blue light to help with acne or signs of aging. The facial treatments can be followed by a microcurrent dual face mask system by Franz Skincare. This mask uses ion currents and patented Tissue X technology to transport the nourishing substances deeper into the dermis where they help the most. The other amazing aspect of the Virtue machine is the ability to completely turn off the radiofrequency if desired. This is very helpful when we are microneedling for hair loss or on patients who have defibrillators or pacemakers. These FDA-approved machines are at the forefront of new and innovative less invasive, less painful treatment options that help you look your best for years to come. Fox Vein & Laser Experts also offers the best in tattoo removal, using Picoway by Candela. In those cases where someone may regret getting a tattoo, hope is not lost. This machine is the best tattoo removal laser on the market. It can also be used to treat benign pigmented lesions, discolorations, scars and more. The laser uses Picosecond pulses of light in various wavelengths and vibrational energy to remove the ink or benign pigmented lesions. It comes in various wavelengths to adequately treat various colors of ink and melanin on any color skin. The photo-acoustic effect minimizes the injury to the skin and tissues to just the lesion or area being treated. Tattoos and discolorations can be removed faster and with less pain than older treatments.
In addition to tattoo removal, the laser can also be used for skin rejuvenation. It has a separate hand piece, known as Resolve by Picoway, which can help with fine lines and wrinkles, as well as signs of aging like darkening and age spots. The laser also helps refine tummy tuck scars, breast scars and facial scars. “We originally added the Picoway to help people rid themselves of discoloration related to their vein issues, but we use it for so much more,” said Dr. Fox.
Aside from vein procedures, Fox Vein & Laser Experts also performs hair restoration with microneedling and PRP or stem cell serums. They have been a primary center in a hair regrowth trial using microneedling and AnteAge stem cell serums. The Virtue RF microneedling machine makes 36 micro-holes in the scalp with each pass. These channels allow the PRP and stem cells to be better absorbed in the areas that it is needed. Fox Vein & Laser Experts is completing a funded study of hair restoration and so far, have seen amazing results. The patients have noticed thicker hair, even after the first few treatments. The study was designed as a six-month trial, with patients coming in every two weeks for three months, then only once monthly. In between visits, the patients are instructed to use a hair care formula by AnteAge at home. Before and after photos have been taken, which visually show the success rate. “Many people have struggled with thinning hair and hair loss from stress, aging, medications, Covid-19, illness, etc. and this has been so helpful," said Dr. Fox.
