WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A

GOOD SKIN PRODUCT

MidState Skin Institute’s staff has extensive dermatologic knowledge and we put that knowledge to work in choosing which lines of skin care and treatment products we use for our procedures, and offer to our patients for ongoing care.

First and foremost, any product we recommend must be safe and thoroughly tested. There are many products currently for sale that have not gone through a rigorous testing regimen before they are manufactured and put on the shelf, and that does not sit well with our providers.

Every dermatology and skin care product MidState Skin uses, recommends or carries has been personally selected by Dr. Cauthen for its adherence to quality and safety standards.

Secondly, it absolutely has to work. There are a lot of products out there that claim to yield certain results, yet they usually fall short on their promises. MidState Skin does not recommend products that do not live up to their claims, so you can feel confident that any product used in your treatment at MidState Skin or recommended for purchase by our staff is indeed effective.

Heliocare

A clinically proven and dermatologist-recommended dietary supplement. Heliocare products are simple, daily dietary supplements made with exclusive Fernblock® Polypodium leucotomos extract (PLE). This natural extract is packed with antioxidant properties that help maintain your skin’s ability to protect itself against the aging effects of free radicals.* 

Heliocare’s exclusive, clinically proven ingredient is derived from nature itself — the fascinating Polypodium leucotomos fern, found in the wilds of Central and South America. Once an aquatic plant, this fern adapted to life on land and created its own protection from the harsh effects of free radicals in the environment.

The antioxidants in the Polypodium leucotomos extract (PLE) help protect against the aging effects of free radicals. Similarly, Heliocare helps your skin protect itself and maintain its youthful look. Heliocare is a one-a-day dietary supplement. 365 days of helping your skin protect itself. Heliocare affects the skin over your entire body and won’t be washed away by swimming, sweating and other activities.
