Lip Filler Roundup

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Sep 29, 2022 12:00:00 AM

It's time for another before and after picture roundup! Lip filler is a popular lip enhancement treatment at Silk Touch and our patients have had amazing results. Often, individuals who have thin, under-defined lips, or lip lines due to aging turn to filler to help them achieve a fuller, more natural look. We use dermal fillers such as Juvederm, KYSSE or Restylane to accomplish this. This treatment uses a fine needle, or cannula, to inject the filler into the lips or along the natural lip line. Multiple injections may be needed to shape the lips and help you achieve the plumper, natural look you are after. The treatment is quick and results are almost immediate! Check out some of our favorite lip filler transformations by Travis Blaser RN below.

Fuller Facial Hair With The FUE Method

Neograft blog photo

For patients who experience thinning or hair loss, NeoGraft can be a great solution. But, you may be surprised to learn that NeoGraft Hair Transplant can be done for facial hair as well.

The amount of facial hair a man has comes down to genetics. Sparse, or patchy facial hair is a common occurrence for many men and can often affect their self-confidence. The solution for these men in the past has typically been shaving, but with NeoGraft there is another option.

Facial NeoGraft is performed like the typical NeoGraft Hair Transplant Procedure. We use the FUE Method which uses an automated hair transplantation device to take Individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp in groupings of 1-4 hairs, and then transplants them to the desired area. Typical facial treatment areas consist of the chin, neck, cheeks, and upper lip.

Healing and recovery from facial NeoGraft are similar to other NeoGraft procedures. Following your treatment you can expect thicker, fuller looking facial hair that grows like normal facial hair, and can be trimmed, shaped, and grown to any desired length.

Sparse, thinning, or patchy facial hair is a thing of the past with NeoGraft Hair Transplant at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo & Medspa. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure, give us a call at 208-939-3110 or fill out our contact form on our website to schedule your consultation!

Why Everyone Is Talking About PRP

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Aug 4, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Website Specials Aug-2

PRP is the latest buzzworthy beauty treatment - and it's all over social media. The Kardashian's love it, Angelina Jolie can't stop talking about it and bloggers everywhere are singing its praises. So what's the big deal?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and when it comes to anti-aging benefits, you can think of it as liquid gold. Like many aesthetic treatments, PRP was first used in the medical community where its benefits were initially found during wound healing and orthopedic research.

The treatment involves a technician drawing about 10mL of blood, centrifuging it to concentrate the plasma (the pale-yellow liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in suspension) from the red blood cells themselves, and then the platelet rich portion of the plasma is collected and injected into the treatment area. 

The PRP jumpstarts your body’s healing mechanisms to stimulate natural healing and recovery. Since this is your body’s own substance there is little chance for an allergic or sensitivity reaction. 

PRP can be used in several ways, but one of our favorites is in combination with NeoGraft Hair Restoration surgery. PRP is injected into the scalp to help thicken hair and enhance the hair’s natural growth process. At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa we soak all grafts in PRP during the NeoGraft treatment to further boost the healing process.

Are you ready to see if PRP is the right treatment for you? For the month of August, get a complimentary PRP treatment when you book a NeoGraft procedure. Give us a call at 208-939-3110 or visit us online to schedule your consultation today!

Achieve Healthy, Glowing Skin With These Two Treatments!

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Jul 26, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Blog Graphic-3

Healthy, glowing skin is in and we have just the treatments to help you achieve it! Microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning are two facial treatments that work to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion uses micro-crystals to gently exfoliate or remove the outside layers (stratum corneum) of the skin. In addition, the vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation and lymphatic flow, increasing the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration.

Microdermabrasion Benefits: 
  • Improves skin tone and color
  • Stimulates production and growth of healthy new cells
  • Increases collagen production
  • Diminishes the look off sun & age spots
  • Improves acne and acne scarring
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair better known as “peach fuzz.” This is done with the use of a small razor-like tool that is moved back and forth while being held at a 45 degree angle. It is safe for all skin types, and has no downtime!

Dermaplaning Benefits:

  • Provides deeper product penetration (makeup, face washes, etc..)
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peach fuzz”
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types
  • Instant results and no downtime

Give your skin the love it deserves! For the rest of the month, all facial Microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning treatments are just $75 while spots are available ($40 savings!). Plus receive a free VISIA Skin Analysis with purchase! Call at 208-939-3110 or fill out the form here to claim your offer and set up an appointment!

5 Things To Look For When Choosing A Cosmetic Surgeon

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Jul 8, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Blog Graphic-2

Finding a cosmetic surgeon can be stressful. You don’t want just anyone performing surgery on you, especially a surgery that can alter your appearance. That’s why we suggest doing your research to learn everything you can about your surgeon in order to determine if they are the right fit for you. Below are the top things you should be looking for in a cosmetic surgeon:

  1. Board-Certified Surgeon: A board certification ensures that your surgeon has been properly trained and has the necessary experience to be performing procedures. Our very own Dr. Jason Nealy is a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon who is board certified in general surgery, facial cosmetic surgery, and general cosmetic surgery. Dr. Nealy is the best of the best and his results prove it!

  2. Great Ratings and Reviews: Word of mouth and great reviews go a long way. Hearing from previous patients can give you a better understanding of what to expect. Great surgeons have consistent and recent reviews with high ratings from their patients. (Check out Dr. Nealy’s recent reviews here!)

  3. Accredited Facility: Operating out of an accredited facility ensures that the highest safety standards are met. The facility is regularly inspected to ensure these standards are maintained. They also have adequate life support equipment and qualified support staff to help in case of an emergency.

  4. Tailored Treatments: Cosmetic surgery isn’t a one size fits all procedure. It’s important to find a surgeon who is willing to take the time to create a treatment plan that is unique to you. You should be able to talk openly and honestly with your doctor about your goals. From there, your surgeon can discuss with you your options and customize a plan that is right for you. 

  5. Professional and Friendly Staff: Good bedside manner says a lot about a doctor. Your surgeon should take interest in your case, ask you questions, and answer any questions you may have. Surgery is a big step and it’s important that you trust your surgery team and that they make you feel comfortable.

At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo and Medspa we care about our patients and want them to have a great experience with us. Dr. Nealy and his team are highly skilled in what they do and have helped patients just like you achieve their aesthetic goals. If you are ready to take the next step in your transformation, give us a call at 208-939-3110 or visit us online to schedule a consultation

How To Prevent and Treat Lip Lines

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Jun 2, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Sometimes the smallest problems can contribute a great deal to an aging look. Lip lines, also called smokers’ lines, are those little vertical fissures above your upper lip. Most women get them as the years pass, whether they smoke or not. The process is the same as it is for all facial aging: the skin loses tone and elasticity on the surface while the volume under the skin diminishes. The result is a wrinkled, sunken look.

naturallips

What causes lip lines?

1. Sun Exposure

Are you surprised with this one? It seems those UV rays always take the blame for aging. Even on the coldest day, we still get UV exposure. The only way to help with the aging affects of sun exposure? You guessed it - stay out of the sun and lather up on sunscreen every single day!

2. Smoking

In addition to all the other scary health issues that come with smoking - the repeated motion of puckering up causes the tiny grooves in the skin above your lips to form more quickly, and to become more pronounced.

3. Straws

Though this has not been scientifically proven - many medical sources say that the frequent use of straws can cause lip lines to form sooner. The same is said about kissing - but you may want to weigh the benefits on that one.

4. Aging

The one thing none of us can do anything about? Aging. Sort of. There are plenty of lifestyle changes that can help prevent of slow down the appearance of lines around the upper lip. Moisturize, drink plenty of water, use a Retinol, get enough sleep and eat a healthy diet.

How to Treat Lip Lines

If your genetic code or past-sun exposure or smoking has resulted in lines to your upper-lip, there are many steps you can take to minimize and even completely erase their appearance.

Our Top 3 Treatments for Lip Lines

1. Injectable Wrinkle Fillers 

2. Laser Skin Resurfacing

3. Chemical Peels

Does BOTOX For Excessive Sweating Really Work?

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on May 19, 2022 12:00:00 AM

The warmer months are fast approaching, and for some of you, that may bring added stress. Stress that you may experience excessive sweat, stress over raising your arms due to sweat stains, or stress over wearing clothes that show sweat. Individuals with hyperhidrosis know this stress all too well. Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by uncontrollable sweating in excess of the amount required to regulate body temperature. If you are one of these people, we are here to tell you that you are not alone. There may be a solution for you and it may be simpler than you think!

Untitled (1500 × 1200 px)

BOTOX Treatment For Excessive Sweating

Many people don’t know that BOTOX is in fact an FDA-approved treatment for severe underarm sweating. BOTOX is injected into the underarms, temporarily blocking the nerve signals that control sweating. When these nerves are blocked, the sweat glands stop producing excessive sweat.

BOTOX as a treatment for hyperhidrosis is great because it’s quick and there is no downtime! In addition, BOTOX begins working within a few days and can last as long as 6 to 12 months. Other treatments for hyperhidrosis in comparison are more invasive or require multiple treatments to achieve results.

There is no need to feel embarrassed or to feel like you have to hide your under arms. BOTOX for excessive sweating is a great way to help you gain back your confidence and have you feeling comfortable in your own skin. If you think you could benefit from BOTOX for hyperhidrosis or if you are interested in learning more, give us a call at 208-939-3110 to schedule a consultation today.
