The Oscars are quickly approaching and some celebrities have been preparing for months. Walking the red carpet places A-list celebrities under a microscope. The dresses must be perfect, cosmetics must be applied without a smudge, and faces and bodies must be flawless. Dr. Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, reveals the secrets behind preparing for this big event.

Two to three months before the Oscars, some celebrities opt for non-invasive procedures that may require time for collagen to build and for the best results to show. These procedures include mini non-surgical facelifts and non-surgical neck lifts using the Coolaser and CoolFrax techniques developed by Dr. Ourian.

“Oscar dresses often leave little to the imagination,” says Dr. Ourian, “so I may also do a laser treatment on the décolleté and hands to remove brown spots and sun damage.”

One month before the big night is the perfect time for dermal filler injections to plump up lips and fill in facial creases. “I use a variety of dermal fillers including Juvéderm, Perlane, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Each product has unique qualities and I choose the one most appropriate for each patient and their aesthetic needs,” says Dr. Ourian.

One week to ten days prior to the Oscars, is the perfect time for celebrities to get the maximum benefit from Botox injections to treat facial wrinkles and excessive sweating. No one wants to ruin an expensive dress with sweat or shake hands with clammy palms.

“The latest technology, Ultrasound/RF,” explains Dr. Ourian, “allows me to provide a last minute tightening without bruising or any other tell-tale sign of treatment.” And with this, preparation for the Oscars is complete.

Dr. Ourian reminds his celebrity clientele that less is more. Too many treatments may create an unnatural appearance. “I never want to turn on the TV and have someone say one of my clients looks “done”, concludes Dr. Ourian, “the goal is to look refreshed and vital.”

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer of laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
