While there are plenty of amazing style hacks glam teams use to help stars look their best, celebrities usually go the extra mile by preparing weeks in advance with some of the most sought-after Oscar-worthy beauty treatments. Hollywood's biggest names often turn to everything from facial contouring to red light skin therapy to get their glow on.

"Good Morning America" got the official scoop on some of the most requested and highly recommended treatments that stars love when it comes to putting their best faces forward.

The glow-getter

"If Beale Street Could Talk" star Regina King turned to a red carpet radiance treatment to turn up her glow before attending the 76th Golden Globe Awards.

Arcona co-founder Chanel Jenae -- who also works with big-name clients such as Mandy Moore, Anna Kendrick and Rachel Zoe -- used this treatment on King, which includes facial contouring as well as a proprietary massage technique to leave cheeks with a toned, chiseled look. The complete process takes roughly 80 minutes and costs $198.

The Red-Carpet Radiance Treatment is a holistic alternative to plastic surgery which makes it a big hit for red carpets.

For full-on firmness

When it comes to the red carpet, skin is in and many celebrities like to radiantly show off there best angles while posing for photos. According to celebrity facialist Gina Mari, head-to-toe microdermabrasion is the one the best ways to stimulate elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, which in turn results in a healthier, firmer appearance.

Multitasking Tuesday’s #ginamariskincare

Following microdermabrasion, Mari likes to perform radio frequency. It is a skin-tightening treatment, which can be performed on the face, neck and other stubborn areas such as the tops of knees and arms.

"When combined with ultrasound, this treatment can be performed on the body, helping to melt unwanted fat," said Mari.

"We finish the session off with a true multi-tasker ... the Envy Lightwave capsule combined with the topical-light infusion treatment. The capsule treats the entire body and is clinically proven to defend against aging, inflammation and cellular damage. While the entire body is being treated we apply skin specific topical infusions which are literally activated by the LED lights. This LED light system has the ability to drive vitamins, peptides, hyaluronic acids and many other advanced compounds leaving our clients revived and glowing," she went on.

The ultimate Oscars lift and sculpt

"The Tracie Martyn Red Carpet Facial is the go-to facial for all our celebrity clients before events like the Oscars," said holistic nutritionist and co-founder of Tracie Martyn Facials & Skincare Marius Morariu.

He added, "The treatment was created to dramatically lift and firm skin, contouring the cheekbones and jawline, which helps our clients look even more photogenic than they already are."

Morariu also pointed out that many clients also like to add on RedSculpt Radiotightening, which combines red LED light and warm heat waves that work synergistically to tighten, realign and help boost collagen.
