FRACTORA

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 to slow the effects of aging and restore your skin, so you can look younger.

Yes, this is the same procedure recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show that has everybody talking.

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 Life."

NAIL FUNGUS CURE

The ​PinPointe™ Footlaser™ is the only laser with clinically proven efficacy and FDA clearance for the treatment of nail fungus for both fingers and toes. If you follow our instructions we will cure your nail fungus! Topical treatments are not enough and oral anti-fungal agents have serious adverse side effects associated with their long term use. At Head to Toe Laser Center we use aggressive therapy that includes laser treatments, The BrightNails System© and patient education to cure your nail fungus. Advancements in technology have given patients new hope to cure this troublesome problem of unsightful nail fungus.

Introducing the BrightNail System developed by Phillip Milgram MD is a combination of applied techniques and procedures performed at our medical offices and carried on in the patient's personal care routine at home. Dr. Milgram has cured over 3,500 patients! 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.

NORDIC NATURALS

Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids - Heart and Prostate Health

We proudly recommend Nordiac Naturals line. Omega-3 product labels and supplement fact panels can often be confusing.

Nordic Naturals line of award winning fish oils not only meet the above criteria but we also provide over 50 different varieties of omega-3's to meet the needs of all types of patients and they control everything from boat to bottle by manufacturing on their own.
