How To Tell If You Are A Kybella Candidate

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

15_FACE.Kybella-2.jpg

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.

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!

How To Choose Between Liposuction and Non Invasive Fat Reduction

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Dec 14, 2016 5:31:00 PM

Every week it seems there is something new in the world of aesthetic medicine, and in all honesty it can be hard for people to keep up! There are so many options these days - especially for body procedures! So when it comes to waging the war on fat - what is really the best option? How and who is going to benefit the most from a certain procedure/treatment really depends on the patient and the outcome they are hoping to achieve.

If Your Looking For Body Contouring or Fat Loss

If someone really wants to change the shape and contour of their body liposuction still reigns supreme. In fact in 2015 it was the most requested cosmetic procedure according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. This minimally invasive procedure breaks down and removes fat immediately from the body and results are often pretty dramatic. It can make someone look like they lost 10-15 pounds. Downside is that you will have to wear a compression garment for up to two weeks and healing does take time.

If you have small problem areas or can't those stubborn final few pounds. 

So what kind of patient would benefit from the new non-invasive fat reduction procedures? The best results come from those patients who have small targeted areas of fat accumulation (think those last "5lbs" that wont budge from your tummy or loves), or those who are adamantly opposed to doing anything invasive. Non-invasive options like our Sculpsure device uses radiofrequency energy to destroy fat cells in a multiple quick sessions.  Once destroyed they are carried away through the body’s lymphatic system. You won’t get the immediate WOW results like you will with liposuction; it can take up to 12 weeks for the 25% reduction results to be seen. Upside is that can you have the procedure and go back to work that day. No compression garment is needed.

The best rule of thumb is to decide what you want, what you’re willing to undergo and be honest in what results you want to achieve! Then educate yourself on each procedure by asking the experts who perform these on a daily basis. Knowledge is the power that will allow you to make an informed decision that is right for you.

Curious which body contouring procedure is right for you? Let us help! At Silk Touch, we offer a wide array of body contouring procedures: liposuction, non-invasive, as well as skin tightening. Everybody and every body is different - what worked for a friend isn't always what will work for you!  During your initial consultation we can go over your goals and concerns and can recommend the best treatment for optimal results.
