Is skin care truly different when offered by a spa, beauty salon, department store or a specialized plastic surgery practice? Absolutely! At Imagine Plastic Surgery you receive superior medical grade skin revitalization, focusing upon natural, organic skin care and complemented by laser facial skin resurfacing treatments to provide beautiful outcomes. We employ fractional laser rejuvenation and a cadre of board certified physician assistants, licensed medical aestheticians, as well as our board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Robert Hardesty and Dr. Della Bennett.

CO2 laser resurfacing (including fractionated CO2) is the best treatment to remove unwanted wrinkles and restore your skin to a more youthful appearance. By their nature CO2 lasers are extremely accurate in revitalizing aged skin and reducing or eliminating wrinkles while stimulating your own collagen production. The results are truly remarkable! Years of sun damage, smoking lines, and expression lines almost vanish entirely on just one session of CO2 laser resurfacing or several sessions of fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing.
Intense pulse light (IPL) therapy improves dullness, fine lines, pore size and loose skin on the face. In addition, unwanted “sunspots” or uneven pigments of the skin are removed. This treatment is considered less invasive when compared to most lasers because it is not associated with excessive redness or sensitivity.
Our Thermage treatments can tighten skin on the chin, jaw, eyebrows and, neck, as well as other parts of the body. Thermage also improves the appearance of deep forehead wrinkles and facial or body scars.
Other skin resurfacing procedures include microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Microdermabrasion will improve skin dullness and fine lines as well as provide an optimal non-invasive treatment. Chemical peels are offered at various concentration levels, depending upon the condition of the face. Chemical peels accelerate the exfoliation process to result in a more advanced improvement than provided by microdermabrasion.
Our practice offers a wide variety of options to combat aging and create a naturally, rejuvenated appearance. These targeted treatments include either Botox and Dysport to remedy frown lines, lines around the eyes, (crow’s feet), forehead and neck lines.
Due to facial volume loss which comes with aging, we have a variety of effective fillers to reverse this trend including Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra. As we age, there is also a loss of collagen in our skin. To meet this challenge, Dr. Hardesty and Dr. Bennett recommend the utilization of polyglycolic acid which can be added to deep folds or creases about the face and stimulates your body’ ability to produce collagen.
Microlipoinjection , also called autologous fat transfer, is an effective procedure in which an individual’s own body fat is used to plump up sunken or emaciated areas of the face, or to add volume where desired. The word “autologous” simply refers to the use of your own tissues or fat. Drs. Hardesty and Bennett have been at the forefront of this amazing advance in facial rejuvenation.
Our licensed medical aestheticians employ a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments. These services include dermaplanning, the aforementioned microdermabrasion and, TCA peels. Additionally, our experts will assemble individually tailored prescription strength skin care products for home use.
