Before your favorite celebs walk the red carpets this award season (and every award season, for that matter), they spend some time with Hollywood's top skincare experts. From serum soaks to oxygen infusions, we tracked the secrets behind their luminous complexions.
Scroll through to find out what facial treatments the stars rely on to get red carpet ready!
Beverly Hills–based dermatologist Harold Lancer is known for his ability to create healthier, younger-looking complexions, and he does it with the help of Venus Legacy and Venus Viva. The Venus procedures are non-invasive treatments that combine radio frequency heating and magnetic pulses to tighten skin. From the neck down, Lancer uses Venus Legacy to reduce cellulite and wrinkles. From the neck up, Venus Viva diminishes deep wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, uneven texture, and pigmentation irregularities in just a few weeks. Lancer calls the treatment the “ultimate solution for skin rejuvenation.” It’s perfect for creating award season–ready complexions—just ask Sofia Vergara, who’s a fan of the treatments.
If it’s award season, you know Kate Somerville is busy. Her signature DermalQuench Oxygen Treatment is known for delivering the red carpet glow. “This treatment combines oxygen, vitamins, and hyaluronic serum under hyperbaric pressure to deliver unparalleled hydration and age-defying results instantly,” Somerville says. Basically, this nifty machine pushes pure oxygen and a hydrating serum customized for your skin type deep, deep down into your skin. “The look of dryness and fine lines disappears, and skin is left smoother and softer with an undeniable glow,” she says. According to Somerville, her clients (including Kate Walsh, Debra Messing, and Lisa Rinna) love this treatment before a big event because the complexion-boosting results are visible immediately.
Before the big shows, Beverly Hills esthetician Gina Mari doesn’t give her clients facials, but rather full-body treatments. She designed a multi-layer treatment that perfects skin from head to toe. The appropriately named Statuette involves everything from deep pore cleansing to skin-firming LED face and body lights. While the two types of microdermabrasion and active vitamin-infusion oxygen therapy are certainly highlights of the service, it’s the microcurrent portion that gives her clients the immediate, visible lift they need before walking the red carpet. “It delivers instantaneous results of not only a lifted, rejuvenated appearance, but an overall even and glowing complexion,” Mari says.
