He is a graduate of the University of Utah Medical School and specialized in a 3-year anesthesia residency at the world-famous Mayo Clinic.
Over the years, as cosmetic technology has increased, Dr. Kerr has been at the forefront, bringing the latest and greatest technologies to Idaho. He was among the first to bring Laser Hair Removal to the valley in 1999 and has continued to add new technologies as they have developed over the years. He has many firsts including the combination of Vaser Ultrasound-assisted liposuction with Smartlipo for a better aesthetic outcome. He has introduced DOT CO2 Fractional laser for skin resurfacing, Pelleve and Venus Freeze for skin tightening and recently added the latest technology in Hair Restoration, the NeoGraft Hair Restoration system.
Dr. Kerr has trained and consulted with doctors from around the country teaching his Smartlipo, Vaser, and Vibration Assisted Liposuction techniques, as well as giving training in advanced botox, injectable and fat transfer techniques. Recently he was chosen to speak to his peers at the 2014 American Association of Cosmetic Physicians on his liposuction techniques for knees, calves, and ankles.

Silk Touch holds the distinction of being both an Allergan Black Diamond Provider and a Suneva Diamond Level Account, establishing our practice as the leading injectable provider in Idaho and one of the top providers in the nation. Dr. Kerr and his team practice the “art of medicine” by using an artistic eye and medical skill in determining the best approach for each client.

Silk Touch is also a Top 250 Allergan account, placing us in top 1% of providers of Botox and Allergan fillers nationally.
“I really enjoy using Cosmetic Fillers, Fat Transfer and BOTOX to restore the face to a more youthful look. My clients tell me how much they appreciate my artistic approach and of course they love that I can do it with minimal discomfort. Using my skills as an artist and anesthesiologist with a cosmetic training, I treat each of my patients as a canvas, using an artist’s eye to sculpt areas of the body just as I can sculpt a piece of clay into a work of art.”
