Partner Spotlight: Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute
Covering a total area of about 20 feet, your skin is your body’s largest organ—and one of the most important. It protects you from the elements and other environmental aggressors, helps you regulate your body temperature, and enables you to enjoy the wonderful sensation of touch. Pretty great, right?
Yet for most of us, the skin is something we don’t think about until there’s a problem, like that itchy rash on your elbow, those sudden hairline pimples, that new mole on your shoulder or that stubborn crease between your eyebrows. Here at Carepoynt, we’re all about making healthy choices every day—and that includes being proactive about the health of your skin. Our partner Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute is here to help.
Horizon’s founder, Dr. M. David Cole, is a board-certified dermatologist and a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. He graduated with highest honors from UCLA, and received his medical degree from the University of Virginia. Dr. Cole’s post-graduate training in dermatology included both the Yale University School of Medicine and Loma Linda University Medical Center; prior to opening Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute, he was a clinical professor of dermatology at the UC Irvine School of Medicine.
Due to Dr. Cole’s extensive clinical and academic background, Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute is able to offer a full spectrum of cosmetic and medical dermatology services. Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S., affecting an estimated 80% of people between ages 11 and 30, and up to 55% of people between ages 20 and 40. Dr. Cole provides a variety of acne treatments, including Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), glycolic and salicylic acid peels, cyst extractions and more. Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute also treats a variety of other common skin conditions, including warts, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, skin tags and other benign growths.
And of course, having been raised in the sunny coastal communities of Newport and Huntington Beach, Dr. Cole is passionate about proactive skin cancer screenings. He recommends that everybody (particularly his fellow Southern Californians, who are constantly tempted with opportunities to spend time in the sunshine) get checked annually for any new, changing or otherwise suspicious-looking moles.
Head-to-Toe Cosmetic Treatments
Dr. Cole’s mission is to help all of his patients, women and men alike, maximize their true beauty. For a smooth, even-toned, youthful-looking face at any age, Horizon Dermatology & Laser Institute offers a wide range of cosmetic dermatology treatments, from popular injectables like Botox and Restylane to physician-grade chemical peels to cutting-edge laser treatments like Candela, Lutronic and Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL).
Dr. Cole’s broad clinical expertise also gives patients access to a variety of specialized cosmetic body treatments, including hair restoration, leg vein treatments (sclerotherapy and laser vein ablation) and CoolSculpting®—a new, effective fat loss treatment that can be done in the office with virtually no downtime.
