It comes after Shirley posed for a slew of beautiful before-and-after snaps earlier this week and said: “This is the best thing I’ve seen in years”.

Since February last year, the former dancer has been visiting one of the UK’s top beauticians, Dr. Judy Todd to rejuvenate her looks without going under the knife.

Shirley said: ‘About this time last year I was aware that my jaw was a little saggy and sagging, my skin was looking dull and a little bit lifeless and I wanted to get rid of all my spider veins and tighten the skin on my neck and chest’.

“I wanted to do my best, but I really didn’t want to go under the knife, so I thought I’d try this alternative route.”

Shirley modeled a chic range of outfits for the shoot and went makeup-free to showcase her freshly lifted skin and glowing complexion.

The procedure involved regular NeoGen plasma treatments, which used pulses of nitrogen plasma to deliver controlled high temperatures deep into skin tissue to massively boost collagen and elastin production.

The NeoGen treatment lasted around 30 minutes and was performed all over her face including the delicate eye area and was specifically done along her jawline as well as her chest and hands.

Shirley continued to gush about the stunning results after admitting she wasn’t sure what to expect.

She said: “My jaw feels so much sharper, I feel like the skin isn’t saggy, it feels rejuvenated, it feels bright and clean, no small veins, no sun spots, all in all really spectacular look.

Loving Life:

Loving Life: “I feel like my skin is glowing, it’s healthy, it looks amazing, I have a much better jawline, so I’m very, very excited that people are going to see the results.”

“I was a bit apprehensive at first, but I’m over the moon with the results.”

“Every woman in her 60s wants to feel confident, and I have to say, at the age of 62, I feel better now than I’ve ever felt.”

“I feel like my skin looks radiant, healthy and great. I have a much better chin so I’m very, very excited that people will see the results.”

Shirley was also prescribed topical Obagi skincare for daily use and she took natural G Herbal supplements to speed up skin repair and increase skin’s nutritional levels.

In all, Shirley’s treatments and topical skincare products cost around £5,000 over the ten months.

dr Judy Todd runs clinics at the Cadogan Clinic in London and the Synergy Clinic in Glasgow.

Expert Opinion: Expensive but effective

The treatment Shirley Ballas is having with Glasgow-based anesthesiologist and beautician Dr. Judy Todd had is a relatively new procedure.

NeoGen Plasma was launched in the US in 2013 and arrived in the UK in 2017. dr Todd, who has been using it for a year, is one of several doctors across the UK now offering it.

You can have it done as a one-off, high-intensity treatment, lasting an hour and costing around £3,000, but you would need around ten days of downtime indoors while your face recovers.

Distribute treatment like Shirley did and there’s no downtime. Patients are often given Anti-Age skin-repairing growth factor serum to aid in healing.

Low-intensity sessions cost around £750 each and if you also have your chest and hands treated it adds an additional £250 for each session.

You’ll see that Shirley’s patchy skin pigmentation is gone too. This was achieved with a prescription skincare regimen called Obagi Nu-Derm, which costs around £500 for a six-week regimen.
