Caviar facials

A caviar facial? An “anti-gravity” massage? Or how about a simple total body hydra-dermabrasion resurfacing? Welcome to the weird — and expensive — world of pre-award beauty spas.

A-listers, movie moguls and even mere mortals are willing to pay top dollar for aesthetic perfection before stepping into the red carpet spotlight.

“I cannot reveal any names of guests, celebrity or otherwise, having treatments done,” said Derek Hofmann of The Spa at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, USA. “But I can tell you that very many of the nominees for all of the (Oscar) award ceremonies are having these treatments performed in order to look their best for the celebrations.”

“Loaded with protein-rich caviar and powerful antioxidants, this facial will have you ready to walk the red carpet, because the results are immediate, leaving the skin looking healthy and luminescent,” he says.

The “anti-gravity lift” is a face and neck massage costing $225 for an hour, although a minimum of five sessions are recommended for best effect.

“This non-invasive treatment re-educates facial muscles to yield a firmer, more contoured and youthful appearance. These structural enhancements become even more pronounced after a series of treatments,” he says.

At the Ole Henriksen Spa on Sunset Boulevard — whose regulars include Katy Perry, Mark Ruffalo and Mark Wahlberg — spokeswoman Kira Kohrherr suggests its Ultimate Total Body Hydra-Dermabrasion Resurfacing as just the thing before heading for the limousine.

Face, neck, decollete, arms, elbows, thighs, knees and back are renewed, hydrated and refined in the 110-minute treatment, which costs $395.

However, the experts quickly add that beautiful skin is dependent on more than just your skincare routine.
