Laser and Skin Care Center

Spirit Laser and Skin Care MediSpa

Dr. James Payne has recently added a formal Laser and Skin Care Center to his busy cosmetic surgery practice. He has maintained a strong interest in this subject since he began his career in plastic surgery 20 years ago and has treated thousands of patients. The field of skin care related treatments and technology has exploded over the past 5–10 years. There are new products and services being added annually. The emphasis now is on finding treatments that can be delivered to patients quickly and easily without the need for any significant anesthesia and with little or no down time. Traditional surgery techniques are still the gold standard in terms of providing outstanding results but now there are many good non-operative options for women and men. These can be utilized separate from surgical procedures or combined depending on what the client wants.

One of the main problems consumers have with deciding which treatments are right for them is the complexity of what is available. There are so many products and services out in the mainstream public’s view that knowing what is good and what is not is virtually impossible to decipher. The marketing associated with these options is often misleading or vague. Even for physicians who specialize in these areas it can be confusing and contradictory. Dr. Payne has the advantage of being an experienced Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon. He is not beholden to any one way of doing things. His goal is to mix and match utilizing all the methods available to plastic surgeons to make his patients look their best. He provides surgical and non-surgical services and can use any tool available to make people look better. Plastic surgery is the only medical specialty that is not constrained in some way with respect to being able to treat the whole patient whether that involves surgery, non-surgery, vitamins, hormones, diet, exercise, etc. By combining different modalities including surgery with non-invasive or minimally-invasive techniques his patients get the best results. Dr. Payne’s office emphasizes quality of outcome along with safety. He also is concerned that patients get something for their financial investment hence he only will provide treatments that he believes have the potential to really do something for each patient. We want patients to feel their investment with us for their Laser and Skin Care services/products is one which makes them look and feel better and doesn’t fall into the waste-of-time category. We want our patients to understand what we are trying to achieve with them. We will advise each patient as to what can be done to solve their particular issue and we will help each patient to avoid going down a path that will likely lead to disappointing results. There are many spectacular claims made for many products/services that are simply not true. Let us help you sort out what will help you the most so you can avoid a disappointing result. By making good decisions early in the process each patient is much more likely to be pleased with the very exciting new field of Laser and Skin Care Medicine.
