Our Staff

Dr. Stewart T. Cayton Owner and Medical Director

Dr Stewart T Cayton

Dr. Cayton is originally from Lake Charles, LA and went to college at McNeese State University where he graduated with honors.  He attended Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans from 1996-2000 and subsequently received his training in General Surgery from 2000-2005 in New Orleans as well.  After finishing residency, his career plans took a slight turn after getting married and starting a family.  Instead of returning to training in plastic surgery he has worked at a major local hospital as a trauma, critical care and acute care surgeon since 2005. 

Although this serves as a very satisfying career, he felt the need to heed the call of his original joy of performing cosmetic procedures and in 2007 he began performing non-invasive cosmetic injectable treatments like botox and dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation and augmentation.  He has done extensive training in these treatments and has built up a large clientele which spans Louisiana and extends as far as Los Angeles and Florida. 

Dr. Cayton is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery.  He has served as the Chairman for the Region 2 Commission of the Louisiana Emergency Response Network (LERN) since 2006.  He has also served on the Board of the Capital Area Medical Society since 2007 and served as the President of the Board for 2012. 

He continues to evaluate new therapy modalities and products to offer the most up-to-date and valid treatments available for facial rejuvenation as well as health and wellness.  He and his beautiful wife Nikki bought Lokka in 2009 and have enjoyed bringing these treatments to the people of Baton Rouge!

Getting personal with Dr. Cayton:

A lot of people don’t know that I was a professional musician for many years as a guitarist and vocalist.  I met my perfect match in Nikki and together, along with our beautiful children, Cole and Vivian, we love to go watch live music.  (Cole went to his first Jazz Fest at the ripe old age of TWO!)  I love to cook and work with my hands (obviously), I’m a huge movie buff, pretty decent at impressions and I love being in the company of a few really great friends!

Nikki Cayton Owner and Director

Nikki Cayton

Nikki Cayton is a LSU graduate with degrees in Advertising and Business. After moving from Texas where she was Director of Operations of a large Houston business, she met Dr Cayton while living in New Orleans. 

In 2007, Nikki began a very special mission.  Upon the move to Baton Rouge after Hurricane Katrina and right before the birth of the Cayton's second child, Nikki became one of only two certified instructors for a program known as Infant Swimming Resourse or ISR.  Louisiana had not seen a program of this nature and this mission was clear.  The ISR program gave children the competence, confidence and skills of aquatic safety. Throughout the year of 2008, ISR in Baton Rouge had grown to be a very successful aquatic survival training program for infants and children 6 months to 6 years of age. 

The idea to open up a medical spa with husband, Dr Cayton, originally was just that, an "idea", until a charming location opened in the downtown area. With the vision, determination and lots of hard work, the Cayton's opened Lokka Med Spa in 2009 providing downtown Baton Rouge with its very first surgeon- owned medical spa with day spa services. 

Nikki's education and past business experiences has given her the tools to run a successful small business and to oversee operations at Lokka Med Spa. The Caytons together have created a powerful team and they are eager to share their beautiful facility and amazing staff with all their guests
