What else can be done to treat sun damage?

Chest IPL before and after

IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments can lessen many of the changes of sun, including red and brown spots, and can help rejuvenate the overall skin appearance.  A series of chemical peels can also create increased cellular turnover and refresh the skin from the bottom up, helping to treat sun damage and aging.

Some of Dr. Karen’s favorite skin care products are featured below:

physical fusion uv defense

Dr. Horton’s favorite medical-grade sunblock with subtle tint that “goes on like water” and provides all day long sun protection under your regular makeup!

colorescience brush

Dr. Horton believes all her patients should carry this product with them. SPF 30 or SPF 50 tinted powder is easily reapplied throughout the day to eliminate shine and provide ongoing sun protection year-round.















Horton SPA, Dr. Horton’s non-surgical side of her Plastic Surgery practice, educates her patients about “medical-grade skin care” products, FDA-approved procedures and clinically studied skin care regimes that help everyone “put their best face forward” and be responsible when enjoying time outside in the sun!

In her time away from the office and caring for her Plastic Surgery patients, Dr. Horton is also a proud mother of 3-year-old fraternal twin girls & an active Board Member of MPOMC.  She is MPOMC’s Social Media Chair and is responsible for posting interesting and enlightening articles and posts on MPOMC’s Facebook Page.
