If beauty is pain, how much would you endure?
Leading up to the Oscars, many celebrities opted for several non-invasive cosmetic treatments, from fat-freezing Cryolipolysis to Botox to something as simple as laser hair removal. It isn’t all glamorous though—even the process of getting smooth skin can come with a level of discomfort. The question is: Is it all worth it?
E! News asked two experts—Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Vallecillos and Dr. Ehsan Ali, a concierge doctor whose patients include Lana Del Rey, Liam Hemsworth and Bella Thorne—what the most popular treatments are around award show season and if the results are worth the discomfort.
“Minimally invasive and skin procedures with zero or minimal downtime are a lot more popular before [red carpet] events,” explained Dr. Vallecillos. For instance, for treatments like fat-reducing Sculpsure, “it’s a 25-minute treatment, no downtime, zero incisions—it’s pretty awesome.”
Just because award season is over though, doesn’t mean treatment benefits will stop. Keep reading for what you need to know about the quick cosmetic procedures celebrities will be getting all year long.
