“My favorite part about working dermatology is being able to help patients with their skin issues and showing them how to improve their skin and overall health,” says Ellen Wengert, Midlands Cosmetic’s own nurse practitioner. “It’ amazing how important our skin is to our health and how it reflects on the outside so much of what is going on within.”
A Sioux City native, Wengert attended Immaculate Conception grade school, Heelan High, and Briar Cliff University, where she earned her BSN Degree, her Masters of Science in Nursing and Family Practice ARNP-BC.
“There are so many products I love to recommend to patients,” says Wengert. “Everything we use here at Midlands Cosmetic produces real results, which in turn helps people feel better and with more confidence.”
For her own routine, Ellen starts by washing her face with a brightening or exfoliating wash, followed by a toner and then her TNS serum, HA5, moisturizer, and eye cream. Like everyone on our team, she is diligent about sunscreen (SPF 50!). “I would not want to live without my TNS serum, my Retinol/Tretinoin cream at night, or my sunscreen during the day!” she adds.
In her spare time, Ellen enjoys working out, interior decorating, reading, and being a grandmother.
