The Miss High School America Pageant is excited to announce SkinStar Laser MedSpa as a national sponsor for the 2020 national pageants. The 2020 national winners will win an amazing prize package from SkinStar of Little Rock.
SkinStar Laser MedSpa is your single destination for all your body treatment needs. You'll always receive the most comprehensive and innovative procedures available, all in the tranquil beauty of our eco-friendly medspa in Little Rock.
Botox and Injectables
If you would like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, injectables may be the answer.
Remove years from your appearance. No surgery required. With the revolutionary Fraxel restore laser treatment, you can get remarkable results you can see and feel.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works as the light wavelength from the laser is absorbed by germinative cells that produce hair in the follicle. The follicle is heated and the germinative cells are destroyed. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s ChillTip helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Thermage Skin Tightening
Thermage is a safe, non-invasive procedure that’s clinically proven to help tighten and contour your skin. Its unique deep-heating technology stimulates and renews your own collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. Thermage is completely non-invasive – no surgery or injections. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. The procedure is typically performed in a single session. And there’s little to no downtime – so you can quickly resume your normal routine.
Liposonix is a tailored approach that works. Liposonix is a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive approach to getting your ideal shape. In the battle to look your best, there's nothing more frustrating than that stubborn "last inch" you're trying to shed - especially around your waistline. The Custom Contouring™ capabilities of the Liposonix® System target and eliminate fat around your waist - in your abdomen and in the dreaded love handles - to help noticeably slim your waistline. A revolutionary treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat.
CoolGlide® Laser Removal of Unwanted, Unsightly Blood Vessels on the Face, Legs and Other Part of the Body. Cutera CoolGlide® laser treatment is a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for removal of unwanted blood vessels.
Are you experiencing dissatisfaction with the appearance of a "double chin" on you're facial profile? The excess fat in this area of the lower face is challenging to target with diet and exercise, and while surgical procedures were often the best solutions for correcting this aesthetic condition in the past, SkinStar Laser MedSpa patients can now enjoy tighter, firmer contours underneath their chins with safe, nonsurgical Kybella treatments.

As part of her prize package, Miss Collegiate America 2014, Megan Gordon, traveled to India during her winter break this year with People to People Ambassador Programs. When asked what was the highlight of her trip, Gordon said she had to name a top 5.
"Top 5 highlights of my trip? Wowza! Where do I begin???,” said Gordon.
"Well here goes,
5) Being greeted with "Leis of Marigold” upon our arrival. In the Indian culture, the colors of the flowers on the lei signify good luck, courtesy, and happiness.
4) Flying kites with one of the young gentleman at the school we visited on our "Service in India” day
3) Riding camels through the village in which we helped clean the streets!
2) Shopping in Jaipur (The Pink City), it truly was such a magical place…very colorful and full of life!
1) Walking into the Taj Mahal!!!!!! I remember thinking to myself, "wait, isn’t this one of the 7 wonders of the world??” I still can’t believe I experienced that once in a lifetime event.
Someone asked me did I feel prepared once I got to India and to be honest, I truly believe that you can never fully prepare yourself for those life-altering moments. Traveling to India was one of those moments for me. So, I felt comfortable. But, as far as feeling completely prepared, there’s no way I could have been because everyday brought such thrilling and eye-opening surprises and experiences. "~ Gordon
