MidState Skin Institute
Ageless Skin Care
Skin deep doesn’t even come close to describing the breadth and depth of health, wellness and self-care options geared to those over 50 at MidState Skin Institute.
MidState’s physicians and staff of credentialed providers have fine-tuned their treatments to meet their patients’ specialized needs with services ranging from medical, surgical, cosmetic and aesthetic dermatology to cutting-edge technology for treating incontinence.
On the cosmetic and aesthetic side of the practice, Kristin Miller, MidState spokesperson, explains, “Age is not the determining factor. If you don’t feel happy looking in the mirror, do something about it.”
That something could be as simple as filler injections to help smooth wrinkles and firm sagging skin or as advanced as laser and cosmetic surgeries that change the skin’s appearance or elasticity.
Their licensed medical aesthetician offers free consultations to discuss options such as permanent makeup, microdermabrasion, peels and more as well as at-home skin care regimens all aimed at helping your skin look and stay more youthful and vibrant.
On the clinical side, MidState encourages people of all ages to pay particular attention to any skin conditions that “just don’t look right.” They suggest using the ABCDE rule.
Even if you don’t have an immediate concern, they suggest a once- or twice-yearly skin evaluation, especially for seniors.
Of particular interest to men and women experiencing incontinence resulting from aging, illness or surgery, BTL Emsella, a revolutionary, non-invasive, technology-based treatment, offers a welcome, discrete solution. Ninety-five percent of patients report an improved quality of life.
“Our goal always is to improve the health of our patients and to help them look and feel their best,” says Ashley Cauthen, MD, board certified dermatologist and owner of the practice.
