Whose says your body is the only thing that needs to get in shape for a night as big as the Oscars? Aesthetician Sonya Dakar understands that the face needs as much help as the body, which is why she created Beauty Bootcamp, a rigorous six-week program of weekly customized facial treatment, a diet and meal plan and a strict at-home skincare regimen. Dakar, who celerity fans include Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Lawrence also offers her Sculpting Facial, which uses a high frequency laser coupled with her signature sculpting technique to physically manipulate and contour the face, neck and jawline. As a wonderful, non-invasive alternative to Kybella (which has been attributed to post-treatment complications and significant downtime required by patients) this facial melts fat, sculpts the face, chisels cheekbones, defines the jawline, and instantly tightens and lifts the troublesome “double chin” area that other traditional facials aren’t able to address.

What if you never had abs, but wanted them? Although many of your favorite A-listers are toned up by the top trainers, Portofino Beverly Hills can create the illusion of an even better body with its contouring spray tans. Celebrities like Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez get glowing at this luxe locale, which offers everything from slimming/cellulite tans to anti-aging offerings. When paired with Endermology (also offered), which is great for losing water weight, lymphatic drainage, detoxification and contouring of the body, followed by an infrared treatment—which burns anywhere from 600 to 900 cal within one session—the results are flawless.
