Stop Aging In Its Tracks With Sculptra

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Mar 8, 2018 8:46:43 PM

We live in a world where want and usually expect instant results. Whether its lip filler or Botox to reduce frown lines for an upcoming event, we all have our preferred go-tos that we rely on to provide results with very little delay. And that's great!

But every now and again, for some people, gradual results are a better fit than the quick fix.

When it comes to choosing a gradual, long lasting filler that will make people want to know your secret.. we recommend Sculptra.

What is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra treatment is an injectable that works deep within the dermis to help replace lost collagen and gradually restore the look of fullness to areas of the face affected by facial wrinkles and folds. A full treatment (an average of 2-3 sessions over a few months) provides a refined, youthful, and natural-looking appearance that can last up to two years! Sculptra can truly help stop aging in its tracks.

FDA approved Sculptra is made from Poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants. Sculptra stimulates your own collagen, and works to increase the thickness of the skin resulting in a more youthful appearance. 



Sculptra Benefits

1. Anti Aging

Sculptra goes directly to the source of facial aging, working deep beneath the surface, reinforcing your skin structure, and restoring the fullness and volume of your face. The best part is, gradually, over time, people will start to notice that you look fresher, younger, and more refreshed, but they won’t be able to put their finger on what it is. Sculptra is one of our best anti aging secrets.

3. It looks natural

Sculptra works gradually to stimulate your own body’s collagen production, resulting in a natural, more beautiful and youthful-looking you!

4. It's long lasting

Though other fillers may provide immediate results, they need to be injected every 3 to 6 months. Sculptra works gradually and last up to 2 years. You may see some improvements within the first few weeks of treatment, but optimal, long-lasting effects develop after an average of 3 sessions spaced a month or so apart.

We suggest a series of of at least 2-3 sessions for optimal results. The first treatment builds the base, while the second treatment gives you those wow results.

Transformation Tuesday: Thigh Liposuction

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Dec 12, 2017 2:18:00 PM

Thighs can be one of the toughest areas to slim down, especially after losing a substantial amount of weight. Like many lipo cases, this patient came to us wanting to slim her inner and outer thighs.  She was tired of the rubbing in between the inner thighs – and was ready for her pants to fit perfectly on both her waist and thighs.  Living with a pear shape since a young age, she was ready for a change.

Treatment: Smartlipo + Vaser Liposuction for Thighs

Dr. Kerr used liposculpture to reshape the inner and outer thighs. This unique approach smooths out legs by removing fat – giving an over all shapelier, firmer and younger looking legs. This non-invasive liposuction can also help diminish the appearance of cellulite. When both inner and outer thighs are treated, Dr. Kerr can address the fullness under the buttocks to create not only attractive legs, but also improving the look of the buttocks. 


Liposuction for the inner or outer thighs is a quick in-office procedure, with minimal downtime.  Most patients return to normal activity within 3 days.

The end result? Less jiggle, better-fitting clothes, and firmer thighs.

How To Tell If You Are A Kybella Candidate

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Sep 12, 2017 2:31:00 PM


Lately there has been a lot of buzz around one of the latest injectable treatments from the makers of Botox, Kybella. And it's easy to see why. It's an amazing new treatment that gets some pretty wow worthy results.

Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment that gets rid of under-the-chin fat permanently with out surgery! The treatment takes about 15 minutes and while there is some slight tenderness and swelling, the downtime is very minimal. We have been using Kybella in our practice for over a year now.. and we can't get enough of this product. Not only can you use Kybella under your chin and in your jowls - but you can also use it on other areas of the body such as bra fat. 

Are you a candidate for a Kybella double chin treatment? While we want to evaluate you in person first before we can say 100%... you can use this easy test to get a good idea!

Kybella Candidate Test:

1. Pinch the skin under your chin, then pinch the skin on your wrist - if it feels the same, then you a probably not a candidate.

3.Pinch the skin under your chin, then pinch the skin on your flanks (love handles). If it feels the same, then you are probably a candidate!

Check out some of our favorite Kybella before and after pictures below.

Neck Lipo with ThermiTight for Skin Tightening

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Jun 11, 2017 5:01:00 PM

When people come to us for Neck Rejuvenation - they are usually looking to remove fat from under the chin, tighten loose skin under the neck - or both. 

Now using a combination of ThermiTight and Liposuction Dr. Brian Kerr can achieve amazing neck fat removal and skin tightening in just one treatment. 

The combination of both treatments can provide immediate results that improve overtime. ThermiTight is radio frequency skin tightening that is delivered through a tiny probe under the skin after the liposuction procedure.

The total treatment time is about 2-3 hours and most patients return to work within a few days. Compression garments are worn for the first few days to help with healing and skin tightening. 

Here is one of Dr. Kerr's most recent ThermiTight and Neck Lipo before and after results.

Tone Your Arms For Summer with LipoSculpture

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on May 17, 2017 2:59:36 PM

Many people try for months or even years to get more toned and contoured arms - but still the fat won't budge. Even people who are working out and doing everything possible to shape the arms can sometimes fail to get the results they want. Blame stubborn fat or even bad genetics - sometimes working out just won't get you the desired results you want. Unfortunately, some fat is just diet and exercise resistant.

Fortunately, Arm LipoSculpture or Arm Liposuction can help you get that toned, contoured look of well-shaped arms. It can remove the fat that is not responding to other methods. Dr. Brian Kerr of Silk Touch Med Spa, Laser & Lipo Center has performed hundreds of arm liposuction procedures with amazing results. 

Arm Liposuction can:

- Get rid of fat under the arms

- Shape the upper or lower arms to look more toned and defined

- Help with excess skin and fat

- Get rid of arm fat behind the armpits and bra area

- Get rid of fat deposits located on the chest "bra fat"

Arm Liposuction is a one-day procedure that takes less than a few hours. Most patients are back to work in just a few days, and garments are worn for a limited amount of time to help with the healing process and further toning the arms. If loose skin is also an issue, arm liposuction can be paired with skin tightening treatments such as ThermiTight (which can be done on the same day) or a series of Non-Surgical Venus Freeze Skin Tightening Treatments post-procedure. 

Who is a Good Candidate for Arm Liposuction?

If you have fat you can pinch on your arms or bra area - then most likely you are a candidate. While arm liposuction is permanent, fat can return if you continue gaining weight. 

Are you a candidate? Schedule Your Free Consultation at Silk Touch Med Spa. During this free consultation we can go over your goals, give you an exact price for how much your treatment will cost, financing options and any other questions  you may have about the procedure.

PDO Threads - New Non Surgical Lifts

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Mar 13, 2017 2:56:00 PM

This is one of the lastest treatments available Silk Touch Med Spa and we could not be more excited about this amazing new technology and the "wow" results we are seeing! What has us and our clients so excited? PDO Threads.

The PDO Threads are hypodermic needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO absorbable suture. These sutures are often used in open heart surgery and are one of the safest to be implanted in the body. The needle is inserted subdermally, parallel to the surface of the skin, then the needle is pulled out and the PDO thread remains. The thread will dissolve over the next 4-6 months while the body is repairing itself with new collagen around the suture. The new skin structure can hold and remain behind for 12- 15 months.

Two Types of Threads:

Smooth Threads:

Smooth threads consists of creating a mesh under the the skin (ie 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. This mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. This technique tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without and drastic change.

Barbed Threads:

Barbed threads are used to provide a non-surgical lift. This technique is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like with the Smooth threads, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!

In addition to non-surgical face lifts - barbed threads can provide a lift to places such as the knees.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

What is behind a lot of aesthetic procedures such as C02 Laser ResurfacingChemical Peels and Microneedling is something called a “Selective Inflammatory Response”. Since the human body is a master of self repair, these procedures are designed to make the body create new collagen in response to a “controlled injury”. PDO Threads use this natural body response.

Dr. Kerr and PA-C Autumn Heuman are very well versed in the placement and use of PDO Threads to give clients a more youthful appearance. With little to no discomfort a treatment can be done over the lunch hour- no downtime! To see if you’re a good candidate for PDO Threads book a consultation with Silk Touch Med Spa today!
