Restoration MedSpa

While Restoration MedSpa of Winston-Salem has been open for just over a year, it seems like much longer. Marisa Faircloth, PA-C, owner and founder, has been putting her mark on non-invasive cosmetic procedures around the Triad since the early 1990s. The youngest person to graduate from Wake Forest University Bowman Gray School of Medicine as a certified physician assistant in 1982, Faircloth spent her early career working alongside some of the Triad’s best plastic surgeons.

“I remember very well when injectables like Botox became available,” says Faircloth. “It became clear early on that this would be a game changer for the cosmetic industry. The new non-invasive procedures offered little or no down time and were less costly and less dangerous than surgical procedures.”

A pioneer when it comes to the latest, safest, and most innovative treatment options, Faircloth believes that injectables, lasers, and even non-invasive procedures for smoothing skin or removing unwanted fat have revolutionized the cosmetic procedures industry.

Restoration MedSpa’s current Medical Director, Karl Stonecipher, MD, agrees. The noted ophthalmologist and pioneering Lasik surgeon is partnering with Faircloth to open a second location in Greensboro this month. This expansion will merge Faircloth’s services with Stonecipher’s hugely successful practice.

“This will make it much more convenient for patients across the Triad to access Marisa’s services,” says Stonecipher. “Her early experiences provided her with a keen awareness of facial structure and proportions – she’s really as much an artist as she is a practitioner.”

In recent years, the cosmetic industry has been flooded with new options, and it can be difficult to know which are the best choices. Faircloth has a remarkable way of making her patients feel comfortable while they ask their questions and get a recommended treatment plan. “I don’t believe you should ever have to pay to have your questions answered,” says Faircloth.

For that reason, Restoration MedSpa offers a complimentary consultation to all their first-time patients.

Faircloth uses many customized options and solutions to lift, smooth, fill and contour the face to achieve a more youthful and rested appearance. In addition to injectables, Restoration MedSpa offers laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments, CoolSculpting, weight loss solutions, bio-identical hormone treatments, medical grade skin care products and custom spa treatments.

Restoration MedSpa is also recognized by Allergan as a platinum level practice, placing it alongside large, established practices after its first six months of opening. Faircloth is credentialed by Allergan as a Master Level Injector—the highest possible certification.

Recently, Faircloth also became one of only 500 practitioners worldwide licensed to perform the patented ArqueDerma technique, a unique procedure that repositions tissue in the face and stimulates collagen to create a tighter, more youthful appearance. With lasting results, the non-invasive “face lift” is offered in only six other locations across North Carolina.

“At Restoration MedSpa, we pride ourselves in providing an exceptional experience that exceeds our patients’ expectations,” says Faircloth. “We are dedicated to providing the services that will allow them to feel and look their very best.”
