Out with Old…in with New Skin
Many patients are looking for new ways to get glowing skin. Typically, people have undergone facials or chemical peels to get rid of any skin imperfections, now many people are turning to Micropeels. Micropeels are a quick, painless, and effective treatment that can help bring out the beautiful skin hiding underneath the dead layer. At his Riverside office, Dr. Hardesty and his aesthetician staff routinely uses Micropeels to give patients the skin they’ve always imagined.
A micropeel is a type of skin peel that was created by SkinCeuticals. The SkinCeuticals micro peel is a multi-step process that combines exfoliation, chemical peel solution, as well as cryogenic therapy. A typically chemical peel is a treatment used to help fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or sun damaged skin. Dr. Hardesty and his expert aestheticians have been trained in many skin rejuvenation techniques, thus “One Goal Many Options”. Microdermabrasion is one of those options. The micro-peel treatment is time tested, proven and effective in helping his patients achieve beautiful, glowing skin. The team at Imagine Plastic Surgery help their patients achieve the best results by using the patented Micropeel from SkinCeuticals.
At a consultation appointment with Dr. Hardesty and his Aestheticians at his Riverside office will examine your skin. Through this examination, they will look at any skin concerns you may have such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or acne scars. As well as looking at your skin type, elasticity, and hydration. This will help them create a treatment plan for you. The micro peel treatment uses three steps to help rejuvenate the skin. The steps are:
- Chemical Exfoliation: This helps to prepare the skin for the chemical peel
- Chemical Peel Solution: This procedure puts a solution on your skin that helps to remove the top layer of damaged skin and leave behind the new layer of healthy, glowing skin.
- Cryogenic Therapy: The freezing effect on your face will help boost the healing process and the cell turnover rate. This helps to fight off inflammation and bacteria as well.
Dr. Hardesty provides two types of Micropeel solutions that are curated by SkinCeuticals. The solution that he uses during treatment will be based on your skin type as well as your skin care goals. The two Micropeel solutions that he offers are:
- Micropeel: This solution contains glycolic acid at a low pH level. This helps with fine lines, dullness, wrinkles, visible skin imperfections, and visible signs of sun damage. There is no downtime associated with this treatment.
- Micropeel Plus: The micro peel plus solutions are made with salicylic acid and glycolic acid. This helps to reduce acne, blotchiness, sun damage, and uneven skin tones. There is minimal downtime associated with this treatment.
The micro peel treatment is not painful and does not require any use of anesthesia. Patients may experience a warming sensation, but nothing that will cause any discomfort.
It helps the skin to look brighter and rejuvenated by getting rid of any dead skin cells that are on the top layer of the skin.
To be sure that you are a good candidate for a Micropeel, talk with Dr. Hardesty and his expert Aestheticians. They will perform a complete skin examination at the time of the consultation to be sure that this treatment will benefit you.

There is little-to-no downtime associated with the micro peel treatment. The micro peel treatment causes no pain or discomfort, many patients say that it comes with a warming sensation on the skin. Some discomfort may be felt by patients after the treatment, the skin is healing so it will be fairly sensitive. Some patients may experience redness, dryness, or swelling. This should subside in a couple of days. Dr. Hardesty’s Aestheticians will provide you with complete instructions for pre-treatment care as well as post-treatment care.
