There are two major layers in the skin: the outermost epidermis and the lower dermis layer. The subcutaneous and SMS layer reside beneath the dermis layer, and are the sources of fat deposits that help prevent premature sagging. As you age the dermis layer starts to lose collagen, moisture and elastin, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. The latest study shows that the loosening of the SMS layer with age also leads to wrinkles, such as smile lines, frown lines and furrows.
Wrinkle reduction and removal is treated with a multi-faceted approach, with the most important factor being the renewal of collagen. No matter how much loose definition is treated superficially, the underlying problem of a weak collagen matrix is still prevalent. Our laser and IPL regimens aim to tackle a more long-term solution through facial rejuvenation and face lifting procedures..... more
Sun exposure, aging and other environmental factors all lead to the onset of unwanted pigmentation, freckles and dark spots. Also known as pigmented lesions, these signs of skin damage are caused by the abnormal amounts of melanin production in the melanocytes that lie in the skin. There are three main types of pigmentation: epidermal, dermal and combination. Epidermal pigmentation only occurs on the outermost or epidermal layers of the skin, while dermal pigmentation is found in the deeper dermal layers. Combination refers to pigmentation in both the outer and inner layers of the skin, such as melasma.
At Dr. Midas, all three types of pigmentation are taken into consideration before treatment. Laser and IPL technology allows us to target and rid of excessively pigmented cells without damaging the normal colored tissue surrounding it. The procedures generally consist of administering energy into the affected areas to break up the pigmentation and have the body naturally eliminate the unwanted tissue. Although popular remedies such as retinoids and other bleaching agents grant faster results, they are harsh to the skin and only solve the pigmentation at the visible surface layer of the skin. Laser and IPL technology allow for the source of the discoloration within the skin to be remedied through a series of short treatments..... more
The excessive activity of sebaceous glands in our skin follicles cause excess sebum or oil to clog our pores and cause acne conditions. The development of open, visible pores and acne scarring occur when this sebum production is not properly controlled. The maturation of these conditions lead to severe blackheads and deeper acne scarring that visibly seen and felt. Although the formation of indented scarring or enlarged pores can not always be prevented, treating them carries no such doubt.
iOne clinic provides a variety of options to remedy the damage left behind by excess sebum activity.Common concerns with acne or large pores are redness as well as heated pain. The state of the art technology at iOne includes the latest lasers, IPL treatments, microdermabrasion and calming care to reduce pain and downtime while elevating effectiveness..... more
Now men and women are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past, thanks to CoolGlide® system. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! CoolGlide system deliver 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem. Because we have multiple laser systems, we can treat men and women of all skin tones safely and effectively. Even patients with a suntan. All laser systems are cleared for permanent hair reduction.
The CoolGlide Laser System can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, areola, and bikini line.
Patients will feel a series of short snaps, somewhat like a rubber band snapping, but no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required. However, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
Most areas require 6-9 treatments, but the number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hairs' thickness, the area treated, and your hairs' growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Our laser systems work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
The beauty of our technology is that it effectively destroys the hair itself without harming the surrounding skin. You may be a little red afterward, but that typically goes away in a matter of hours. As with all medical procedures there is a slight degree of risk, and we will discuss this with you thoroughly when you come in for your consultation.
No laser or light-based system can treat blonde, white, red or gray hair since there is no melanin in it to absorb the light. With our CoolGlide system people with any other color hair, any skin type and even tanned skin can receive treatment. We will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your consultation.
Our CoolGlide technology is considered the gold standard in the laser industry because of its long history of safety and effectiveness on all skin types. CoolGlide Laser Systems can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CoolGlide system's longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers..... more

LipoDissolve is a clinically proven, non-surgical fat removal treatment that can permanently dissolve unwanted fat and cellulite. The process consists of a series of micro-injections that work to dissolve fat deposits in the face and body through a combination of substances that are naturally produced within the human body. The precision of the injections stems from the ability to provide these metabolic substances without a stimulus from the body, allowing individuals to target and reduce personal trouble spots en route for that perfect silhouette.
Phosphatidylcholine or PC is a common nutritional supplement that makes up 70% of human cell walls. Deoxycholate or DC is a type of bile acid found in the gall bladder that accelerates the breakdown of fat. The combination of PC and DC produces a synergistic effect that dissolves the walls of fat cells where injected. Following injection, fat cells start to gradually loosen, liquefy and soon burst, releasing dissolvent enzymes. The debris of dissolved fat cells then is naturally eliminated through the white blood cells of the immune system and later excreted.
After a phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate, or PCDC, is administered to the targeted areas, the fat cells absorb the PCDC, become slightly inflamed, and then harden.
Within a few weeks the fat cells break down or are "melted" and are then expelled naturally through the body's immune system; which later excreted in the urine and the stool.
Generally all parts of the body that carry unwanted fat deposits can be treated with LipoDissolve. The diagram below shows the most common areas that can be treated.
F: Double Chin / Jowls / Neck
A: Cheeks and Mid-Face Fat
A: Lower Eye fat pads deposits
A: Upper & Lower Abdomen
B: Flanks (Love Handles)
B: Lower Tummy "pouch" below the belly button
C,D: Inner & Outer Thighs
Upper Thighs (Saddlebags)
I: Lower Buttocks (Banana Rolls)
E: Knees and Legs
H: Fat deposits of the Back
G: Upper Back & Bra Strap
K: Upper / Lower / Back of the Arms
Male Specific Cosmetic Zones
L: Male Chest
Male Pelvic Area*
Pain is easily managed during and after the procedure. There is minimal bleeding and bruising with no sutures needed
Lipodissolve has a relatively short recovery period, allowing a rapid return to work and to normal activities. No hospital stay is required.
PCDC has been used in medical applications since the 1950’s; it has been used cosmetically since the late 1980's to treat isolated fatty deposits on the face and body. And to date, over 50,000 treatments have been performed with no serious side effects ever being reported.
Lipodissolve will have dissolved fat permanently in the treated areas; however if an individual starts to gain weight, the fat cells located in the non-treated areas will naturally get larger, altering appearance.
Skin tightening treatments are a noninvasive alternative for repairing skin laxity and improving skin condition. This rejuvenating procedure can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of excess fat and wrinkles without damaging the epidermis or upper layer of the skin.
Patients suffering from residual skin laxity following an operative procedure or loose skin around the face, neck, arms and abdomen are all eligible for treatment. RF procedures are safe for all skin tones.
The procedure uses radiofrequency waves or RF waves to heat the deep layers of the skin. The heating of the dermis layer helps promote the growth of new collagen to enhance the skin’s elastic properties, while lessening the appearance of excess fat in the area.
The procedure itself is very gentle and feels more like a hot massage, however slight pain may incur when the anesthesia wears off; long-lasting pain is rare
Each treatment session can last between an hour to an hour and thirty minutes.
There are no known significant risks to the treatment. Individual risks may be discussed during your consultation.
Although recovery time varies among individuals, there is usually no down-time associated with the procedure. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction results will gradually appear over a 2 to 6 months period of time and can last up to 2 years.
Diet injections aid to amplify the effects of a healthy diet and exercise regimen. More specifically, vitamin B-12 injections are administered to aid in cellular metabolism and boost the body’s production of energy. The vitamin is also commonly found in a variety of everyday foods, including fish, meats and dairy products.
As we age, our body’s ability to absorb certain vitamins becomes difficult. If you suffer from constant fatigue or mild depression, a B-12 shot will help to boost nutrition and energy, allowing for better diet and exercise performance. Vitamin B-12 also plays a key role in red blood cell production, which can also help patients with anemia.
Dieting alone can often bring about fatigue and depression, especially when you are limiting proper nutrition and exercising more that you are accustomed to. This may lead to frequent cravings and food binges that only deteriorate progress. B-12 injections can help to decrease those cravings, allowing you to maintain a successful diet regimen. By countering mild depression, vitamin B-12 injections also help to maintain emotional well-being.
You may experience a slight stinging upon injection, but the pain normally subsides promptly.
The injections will only take a few minutes, and there is no-downtime following the procedure.
There are no known risks associated with the treatment beyond potential bruising at the injection site..... more
A detox diet or “detoxification” is the process of relieving the body of toxins and other compounds capable of harming it. Every day our body accumulates harmful chemicals from the environment, such as pesticides, gas emissions and chemicals from personal care products. Due to this unhealthy build-up, our bodies are not able to function at full capacity, posing risks for degenerative diseases as well as weight gain. The purification method consists of restricting a variety of foods while only taking in the nutrients essential for general function. A detox diet allows your body to naturally flush out accumulated toxins while giving your major organs a chance to rejuvenate. When the body has been completely purified, the metabolic processes necessary for weight loss are able to be facilitated.
Alongside weight loss, a detox diet can benefit those suffering from:
With so many diet supplements revolving around the market, it is hard to distinguish which ones work and are actually safe. At iOne clinics, we make use of prescriptive medicine and natural supplements, in conjunction with treatments, that have been proven through both scientific evidence and our personal practice. The following list displays the variety of diet supplements our clinic most frequently prescribe or provide patients as part of the therapy. Although prescriptive medicines (*) can only be issued through a doctor, natural supplements do not require proper consultation. However, seeking professional assistance ensures that the medicine regimen is safe and effective for your specific needs and medical history.
Weight-loss medications that aid to:
Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice dating back up to 5000 years in China that involves the gentle insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body's surface. Although there are several modern-day theories as to how acupuncture functions, the ancient Chinese believed that acupuncture triggers the body's own self-healing mechanisms by balancing the flow of Qi or vital energy in the body. Qi is said to flow along specific pathways, known as channels or meridians which travel throughout the body surface and interior. Most acupuncture points are located along these pathways and act as gateways through which imbalances in the body's energies can be corrected. The effects of acupuncture can be further amplified through herbal supplements, which are often paired in practice.
Acupuncture can be performed on patients of all ages and for a variety of medical conditions. For weight loss in particular, the following list provides an overview of how acupuncture can fit into your weight-loss treatment.
An initial session with an acupuncturist involves a thorough evaluation, including both a physical exam and a detailed discussion of your case and medical history. The traditional method of diagnosis includes examination of the tongue and pulse, in addition to palpation (pressing) of different regions of the body. Once the acupuncturist decides on a diagnosis and treatment plan, the actual treatment may begin.
Once a regimen has been decided, stainless-steel, pre-sterilized, single-use disposable needles are inserted through the skin at specific points on the body. These needles are smaller than hypodermic needles and rarely elicit pain, with the occasional exception of a pinprick sensation upon insertion.
Once a needle is inserted, the patient may feel a characteristic, temporary needling sensation act or near the point, which may include such feelings of fullness, pressure, warmth, tingling, or heaviness. These sensations are not painful and are interpreted as a signal that the body's healing mechanisms have been activated, much like turning on a light switch.
The needles are generally left in place for 15-50 minutes, although the specific time varies according to the patient's condition and intended procedure.
Most risks associated with acupuncture stem from malpractice or lack of experience. At Ione, all acupuncturists have been certified.
The course of treatment varies depending on several factors, including the severity and nature of the patient’s condition. A typical course of treatment may involve 6-12 sessions, although for chronic ailments a longer period of treatment may be necessary. Initially you may receive 2 to 3 treatments per week, and then as the condition improves the frequency of treatment may be adjusted gradually. Most patients typically show improvement after just a few treatments, although each person responds differently. The treatment strategy may be modified as the patient's condition improved or changes during the course of treatment..... more
Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation procedure that helps to resolve superficial skin concerns. Anti-aging benefits include the softening of fine lines and wrinkles, decreasing of acne scars and pore size and evening out of skin tone. Age spots and other sites of hyper-pigmentation can also be treated through microdermabrasion. Diamond-tipped applicators deliver a removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which is subsequently vacuumed by a separate canister. Home microderm kits are too abrasive and may end up irritating the skin without providing the collagen regeneration properties of a clinic experience. Microdermabrasion can bring dramatic results with a single treatment, however subsequent sessions bring about a greater youthful appearance. With the ability to precisely control application settings, patients with sensitive skin are still perfect candidates for the treatment..... more
The Hydrafacial is a leading exfoliation procedure that infuses more hydrating serums with treatment to minimize inflammation and increase comfort. Heavy exfoliation and extraction sessions often leave the skin with prolonged redness or increased sensitivity; Hydrafacials are able to provide the dramatic improvements without the collateral pain. Anti-aging benefits include the softening of fine lines and wrinkles, decreasing of acne scars and pore size and evening out of skin tone. Age spots and other sites of hyper-pigmentation can also be treated through the hydrafacial. Hydrafacial is especially an ideal procedure for patients with sensitive or dry skin..... more

Many of us know the importance of cleansing our skin. Cleansing removes makeup, dead skin cells, and dirt that accumulates on our skin throughout the day, however not without a cost. The cleansing properties often leave the skin too dry and damage the moisturizing outermost barrier of the skin. Moisturizing helps to increase the skin’s water level and stimulate desquamation or shedding, to provide a smoother and brighter appearance. At iOne, moisturizing sessions are individualized by skin type and skin condition to effectively eliminate dryness and restore balance to the skin..... more
Many of us suffer from skin irritation, ranging from slight redness to even severe inflammation and pain. As the outermost layer of defense, your skin takes on a lot of damage from the environment on a day-to-day basis. Calming care helps to soothe and calm irritated skin, to improve skin appearance and comfort. Alongside basic calming properties, the treatment also helps to hydrate and firm the skin while restoring protection from UV rays and other harmful environmental irritants..... more
Growth factors are biologically active ingredients that have the potential to quickly rejuvenate the skin. One of the most important roles of growth factors include the regeneration of collagen, helping to repair the deeper dermal layers of the skin. Growth factors are excellent for diminishing scars, softening fine lines and wrinkles and tightening the skin. However these anti-aging properties are difficult to produce alone and cannot be found in everyday personal care products. At i-One, we administer epidermal and s-sarcoma growth factors through the Cryo or Ionzyme infusion machines, enhancing absorption and improving effectiveness..... more
Hair microfollicular grafting is the latest hair transplant technology that relocates your own hair follicles to sites of hair loss. This non-invasive procedure does not require any scalpel incisions, reducing the conventional risks of scarring or inducing prolonged redness. Additionally follicular unit extraction requires only a minimal area of hair to be harvested, delivering more extensive hair growth and volume. The natural appearance of hair growth is one of the most important factors when considering a hair loss treatment, and simply using your own hair follicles solves that concern without sacrificing effectiveness..... more
Hair regenerative therapy uses micro-needling technology to induce hair growth without invasive techniques. Micro-needling alone induces collagen regeneration and upregulates fibroblast growth factors to reverse hair loss symptoms. At iOne, we pair this procedure with topical treatments such as additional growth factors and stem cell implants to provide the most effective results while minimizing recovery times..... more
Permanent lash extensions is both a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure that adds eyelashes to the upper eyelid. A graft is taken from the back of the scalp or, in the case of thicker hair, from around the ear to obtain the finest hairs for the most natural appearance. The graft is then treated even further to remove any excess fat, dermal and epidermal layers before being finally transplanted. A sterile transplanting needle is used transplant each individual hair to the eyelids by hand to maintain aesthetic quality under anesthesia. There may be minimal bleeding following the procedure, however there are no lasting scars or sutures to indicate any abnormality. The new set of lashes will grow indefinitely, requiring a monthly follow-up for trimming and perming to maintain them; however compared to the likes of “falsies” and lash adhesives, permanent lash extensions are hassle-free with minimal risk of infection or wear..... more
At iOne, a range of scalp conditions can be diagnosed and treated with minimally invasive procedures. The most common complaints include dry scalp, dandruff and scalp scores, alongside prolonged itchiness or redness.
