TV Stars Are Prepping for Sunday's Emmy Awards


Hollywood is getting ready for the Emmy's red carpet on Sunday, and celebrities are making sure their faces are ready for the camera.

TV's biggest stars will be out en masse this Sunday for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards - and America's eyes will be on the stars. With millions of eyes watching, and HD cameras no less, the stars are getting in some last minute prep, but they've been getting ready for this for months.

Dr. Thomas Barnes, a Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon says that when stars are just a couple of days away from their event, skin care is critical. "Sometimes we can do a little derma-planing and take some of the excess hair off the face, that makes the face look a lot better." Another little secret is a trip to the tanning salon, "You get a little bit of inflammation of the skin and a little swelling in the skin, that erases those little lines and wrinkles and make you look younger."

Dr. Barnes also says that about a week ago, the Emmy attendees may have been getting injectables for the big night, and perhaps a little laser lipo. "If you have 3-7 days before an event, then we can move into {!fillers... | facial fillers} and even Botox. If we have a week or more, then we can get into little mini procedures, tighten up the neck with a little liposculpture, SmartLipo, and other body contours."

Dr. Barnes also says that for those who have a full two weeks, he can perform his own neck shrink lift procedure which is done awake. "I use a little liposculpture technique I do, and then I add my SmartLipo MPX, and I actually heat the tissue of the whole lower face and neck, and I can get amazing results and tightening. Very often, we can avoid cutting surgery for a lower facelift." People are able to return to their normal activities quickly. "They're working within 2-3 days."

So tune in for the stars, the TV, and the fashions this Sunday as Jimmy Fallon hosts the Emmy's on NBC.
