  • Velashape - This cellulite busting treatment has been featured on Keeping up with The Kardashians and Real Housewives of Orange County. Made by Syneron, Velashape uses Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Infrared Light, as well as tissue mobilization combined with suction to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It can also take inches off the thighs and works after only a few 30 minute sessions - perfect for someone preparing for a huge musical number.

  • Botox - This most popular aesthetic treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles after just a few injections. It's just the right thing to avoid embarrassing lines while posing for your red carpet photo. Botox can also be used in the underarm to prevent sweating, so Hollywood's elite can avoid the horror of pit stains. We wonder if any of the stars opted to try Dysport, the Botox competitor just FDA approved in 2009. It works in much the same way but is formulated a bit differently and some say actually takes effect quicker.

  • Laser Hair Removal - When you're wearing something cut up to there, you want to ensure there are no devastating razor bumps. Laser hair removal has come a long way, with new technologies like the Soprano XL from Alma Lasers which promises a pain free permanent hair reduction solution.

  • Facial Fillers - Another wrinkle solution is fillers that plump out the wrinkle to the level of the skin around it, making them disappear. They can also be used to pout the lips out for that perfect 10 smile and work right away, making them ideal for busy singers and actors who need to get in and out. There are many different brands available, some of the most popular are Juvederm Restylane and Radiesse
