Dr. Josh Olson’s Advanced Plastic Surgery in Gilbert is the official Medspa Sponsor of the June 2016 event providing scholarships to Arizona women.
Gilbert, Arizona (June 2016) — Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute, a Gilbert-based practice, is supporting the upcoming 2016 Miss Arizona pageant as its official Medspa Sponsor. Dr. Josh Olson, a board-certified plastic surgeon, owns the practice, which primarily serves Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler, Arizona.
Dr. Olson says the decision to support the pageant in an official capacity is a reflection of his support for the Miss Arizona organization’s goal of empowering the next generation of Arizona women.
“For nearly 100 years, the Miss Arizona pageant has presented an opportunity for young Arizona women to build their confidence by advancing causes that matter to them in their local communities. That forms a parallel with our practice: Our goal is to give women (and men) renewed confidence in the beauty they have always had.”
In terms of medical spa services, contestants may opt for nonsurgical options to enhance their appearance, including J-Plasma® skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, or injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic.
A lifelong Arizonan, Dr. Olson says that giving back enriches both the community and the lives of the young women vying for the Miss Arizona crown.
“Some of the most fulfilling experiences of my career have been offering free medical services to the poor. Everyone has something to offer, and I’m proud to support these contestants who give their time to people in need.”
Miss Arizona encourages its participants to actively contribute through community service. Each contestant gives about 5,000 hours of her time annually to community service initiatives. Organizations include the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, HopeKids, and the Winged Hope Family Advocacy Foundation.
In recognition of the accomplishments of these young women, the Miss Arizona pageant awards scholarships for higher education. Each contestant receives scholarship money that can be used for tuition at various institutions across the state. Awards increase based on contestants’ performance in the pageant. In all, over $300,000 will be awarded through the pageant, and the winner of the Miss Arizona crown will go on to represent the state in the Miss America pageant.
The Miss Arizona competition will be held from June 23 to June 25 at the Mesa Arts Center. Tickets are on sale now through the venue.
