Melissa Roberts, R.N., Brennon Cox, D.O., and Cassandra Clark, R.N., welcome new patients to a free consultation.
If your skin could have a best friend, it just might be the new Mariposa Medspa in Owasso. Brennon Cox, D.O., is one of the physician advisers at the medical spa and describes Mariposa as a “sanctuary for the skin.” “Here you can protect, pamper, repair, and prevent future damage to your skin, all under the safest medical guidelines,” he says.
Formerly Owasso Medical Spa, the business was renamed after the Mariposa Corporation purchased it from its previous owner, Dr. Jack Lamberson. This is the second Mariposa Medspa in Oklahoma; the original location is in Oklahoma City. And, similar to its sister location, Owasso’s Mariposa offers a variety of non-surgical treatments: medical, aesthetic, spa, and body. A line of skin-friendly products and cosmetics is also available.
The word “mariposa” is Spanish for “butterfly.” Known for its metamorphosis into a spectacular and magnificent form, the butterfly signifies the skin’s ability to be transformed into something more beautiful. The staff at Mariposa Medspa believe that, with the right equipment, techniques and products, nearly anyone’s skin can be transformed.
Mariposa takes pride in educating its patients about the different treatments and services available. According to Dr. Cox, this is what makes Mariposa stand out among other clinics. “We make patients as knowledgeable as possible so they can make informed choices,” he says. “They will always know up front what is involved in their treatments.”
Most popular lately has been skin resurfacing with the Fraxel Laser. Treatment results have been featured on “The Today Show” and “The View,” as well as in “Self,” “InStyle,” “Marie Claire” and “O” magazines. Treatments with the Fraxel Laser promote the skin’s healing process, which results in natural rejuvenation. In many cases, it has removed years from peoples’ appearances. The company’s website, www.fraxel.com, has additional information about both the technology and the process.
Mariposa is also happy to provide cutting-edge skin rejuvenation and hair removal with the new Syneron eMax. The Syneron Refirme technology has be demonstrated on “Rachel Ray” and is yet another exciting and innovative tool in reducing wrinkles and restoring collagen to provide for a more youthful appearance. More information can be found at www.refirme.com.
The Syneron VelaSmooth cellulite treatment has been very popular. It is the first FDA-approved treatment for cellulite on the buttocks, thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, saddlebags and neck. A new VelaSmooth contour applicator allows treatment in small areas such as ladies’ arms, calves and bra lines. You can find more information, including before and after pictures, at www.velasmooth.com.
All treatments and procedures at Mariposa Medspa are performed by certified, highly-trained personnel, including physicians, registered nurses and licensed estheticians. The Mariposa Corporation takes pride in providing all its employees with advanced training in aesthetic medicine. The education of the company’s staff is frequently updated so that the company may remain on the leading edge of skin care. The safety and comfort of patients is the prime consideration of the Mariposa Medspa staff.
Mariposa continues to offer Botox Cosmetic®, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Ultra®, as well as mesotherapy and sclerotherapy. Mesotherapy helps in localized reduction of adipose tissue, while sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of troublesome spider veins. Also available is massage therapy. Mariposa Medspa’s licensed massage therapist has been trained in multiple styles of muscle and soft tissue techniques, as well as in prenatal and infant massage.
Men are also becoming more aware of how to take care of their skin and keep it healthy. They visit Mariposa for facials, massages, laser hair removal and, of course, removal of tattoos declaring “love” that did not last.
An outstanding line of mineral cosmetics by Youngblood is available at Mariposa. The naturally-pigmented makeup is specifically formulated for patients who receive cosmetic procedures. Also offered for the best in patient skin care is SkinCeuticals. “Our desire is for patients to use the best products for protecting their skin and preventing further damage,” says Dr. Cox. “We educate patients on which ingredients to look for in their skin care products.” This is all part of Mariposa’s generous and personal care.
CareCredit is available for patients, which allows them to get the cosmetic enhancements they want when they want them. Options for low or no interest are available. And just in time for the holidays are Mariposa Medspa gift certificates.
