FRACTORA Laser for Cosmetic Skin Services

Fractora FIRM and Fractora Skin Resurfacing are the most clinically advanced, non-invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging available today. Fractoral fractional rejuvenation and skin resurfacing is an effective procedure for slowing the effects of aging and restoring your skin, so you can look younger.

Fractora FIRM stimulates collagen that tightens and rejuvenates the skin on your face. As we age our skin becomes saggy and loose, that youthful appearance begins to fade. You may be asking, is there really anything I can do about it? Yes, there is. The first step is to understand what and why it is happening. Located in the mid-layer of your skin in a place called the dermis is a meshwork of collagen and elastin fibers, this meshwork helps support and smooth the skin.

By delivering heat by radio frequency to the mid-layer of your skin, the dermis, helps to stimulate collagen production. IncreaseD collagen production promotes skin tightening. The heat has to be delivered on a recurring basis and at the precise temperature to be the most effective in stimulating collagen production. The Fractora has the ability to do this with minimal damage to the outer layer of skin, the epidermis; so there is virtually no downtime. They call it the "Lunch Hour Face Lift."

Cure Nail Fungus With Laser Treatments

If you suffer from nail fungus or other nail problems, Head to Toe Laser Center can help! 

Topical treatments and oral anti-fungal agents are commonly prescribed, but they rarely result in a cure and can also have serious adverse side effects if used long term. At Head to Toe Laser Center, we use the most advanced treatment options available, including laser treatments and the BrightNails System©. Numerous clinical studies have shown these methods to be the most effective ways to cure nail fungus once and for all.

The BrightNail System, developed by Dr. Milgram, involves a combination of in-office procedures followed by a series of at-home treatments. Dr. Milgram has cured over 3,500 patients using the BrightNail system! We have found that when treating patients with the proper laser application techniques and having patients follow our BrightNail System™ this has resulted in virtually a 100% cure rate! Your nail fungus will be clear in a year, as the new healthy non-injected nail grows out. 

Don't be fooled. Many practitioners claim that between 80%-90% of their patients treated by lasers are fungus free after one treatment. That is only a somewhat accurate statement. When properly applied many laser treatments do kill the fungus instantly and you will be free of fungus when leaving the clinic. However, there is a high degree of re-infection (>40% and as high as 80%) if personal care procedures like our BrightNail System™ are not strictly followed.

Our BrightNail System™ recommends the use of SteriShoe™ to sanitize your shoes on a daily bases. SteriShoe™ has been clinically shown to kill 99.9% of the germs that cause nail fungus, athletes foot and foot odor. To lean more about SteriShoe™ please visit our website store http://www.ourdoctorstore.com/milgram, where you can order SteriShoe and many other doctor approved medical and podiatric medicines and prodcuts not available elsewhere in one shopping cart.
