By now, everyone knows that your skin is your body’s largest organ and how important it is to take care of it. But for Katie Keel, with MidState Skin Institute, her love of dermatology is about much more. 

“Before coming to MidState, I worked on the Burn Intensive Care Unit at Shands, and my experiences there really made me love and appreciate how amazing the skin is.”

Raised in Ocala, Katie received her bachelor’s and Master of Science in Nursing degrees from the University of Florida in Gainesville. Transitioning to MidState Skin was a natural fit for her. 

“From the moment you walk in you don’t feel like you are at a typical medical office—it feels more like a friend’s living room. We do everything we can to make the experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.”

Although clinical dermatology is a staple service at MidState Skin, Katie has a love for all things cosmetic and is most excited about the Co2RE laser, which can dramatically improve fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and skin laxity in a single treatment. 

“With the Co2RE laser, we are able to take years off with no surgery, no sutures and no needles. The best part is that the results are permanent.”

And although cosmetic procedures are offering new ways to make your skin tighter, smoother and more luminous, it’s always important to remember the skin care basics. 

“I always tell my patients to wash their faces at the end of the day, invest in a good vitamin C serum and eye cream, and apply an SPF of at least 30 multiple times throughout the day.”
