Strictly head judge Shirley Ballas has revealed her secret beauty regime and said: “This is the best I’ve looked in years.”

In the past few months, several observers commented on how youthful Shirley was looking but until now she kept the details of her high-tech skincare treatments to herself.

Since February last year (2022), Shirley, 62, has been seeing one of the UK’s top cosmetic doctors, Dr Judy Todd, for a series of the latest non-invasive procedures to rejuvenate her face and neck.

Shirley said: “This time last year I was conscious that my jawline was sagging and hanging a bit, my skin looked dull and a bit lifeless and I wanted to get rid of all my spider veins and tighten up the skin on my neck and chest. I wanted to look my very best but I really didn’t want to go under the knife, so I thought I would try this alternative route.”

“When I started in February I didn’t know what to think or what was going to happen to my face, or whether I was optimistic or not, but now I absolutely love the results. My jawline feels just that much sharper I feel like the skin is not sagging, it feels rejuvenated, it feels bright and clean, no little veins going on, no sun spots, all in all a really spectacular look, I was a bit apprehensive at the start but I’m thrilled to bits with the results.

“Every woman in her 60s wants to feel confident, and I have to say at age 62, I now feel by far the best I’ve ever felt. I feel like my skin is bright, it’s healthy, it looks great, I’ve got a much better jawline, so I’m very very excited that people will recognise the results.”

Shirley booked a private consultation in London with Dr Todd at the beginning of last year after seeing the amazing results Dr Todd achieved with non-invasive treatments on former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Judy Murray.

At the meeting she was given a bespoke treatment programme tailored to her skin’s needs which included high-tech energy treatments to reverse the ageing processes, reducing lines and wrinkles and the sagging jawline, plus a daily topical skincare regime to alleviate pigmentation and improve hydration and skin quality.

The programme included regular NeoGen Plasma treatments, a state-of-the-art new procedure that uses nitrogen plasma pulses which deliver controlled high temperatures deep inside the skin tissues which massively boosts collagen and elastin production, which in turn reduces lines, wrinkles and skin laxity.

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

Shirley added: “These changes don’t happen overnight but over the course of six months I could see a huge difference and they are still continuing to get better. My jawline was much more defined, my skin was brighter and more youthful, my little veins and sunspots were gone, and everything started to look cleaner and clearer.

“I will be continuing to have top-up treatments with Dr Judy Todd every couple of months to make sure my skin continues to be as radiant and lifted as it can possibly be.”

In addition Shirley was also given some Morpheus8 micro-needling and radio frequency treatments, and Dr Todd prescribed Obagi topical skincare to use every day, and Shirley also took natural G Herbal supplements to help speed skin repair and boost the nutrient levels in the skin. She also received some Emsculpt body contouring treatments on her stomach and flanks to tone her muscle and burn fat.

Shirley said: “When I had the NeoGen treatment I was impressed that there was so little downtime that I needed to take. I’m a very busy woman and I don’t have time to sit for a whole week waiting for my face to heal, but there was so little downtime that it really was a benefit to my way of life, and also non-invasive and a wonderful way to rejuvenate my face. Also Dr Todd had some amazing ways to speed the recovery as well and she used numbing creams to make the treatments as comfortable as possible. It wasn’t overly painful but I wouldn’t say it was entirely pain-free either, but the little bit of pain was definitely worth the result.”

In total Shirley had five NeoGen Plasma treatments from February to December last year (2022) and these treatments with Dr Todd start at £750 for a low level energy treatment. In total over the ten months, Shirley Ballas’ treatments and topical skincare products cost around £5,000.

Dr Judy Todd said: “The treatments were specially tailored to meet Shirley’s needs and lifestyle, so we opted for low energy NeoGen treatments. This meant the contraction and skin rejuvenation would be more gradual. With higher energy treatments the results will tend to come much quicker but there can be a recovery period of a week to ten days.”

Shirley said: “What I loved about Dr Todd was her holistic approach, she gives you a whole beauty regime and suggests what are the right types of moisturisers, creams to use, as well as choosing the right treatments to have.

She had the most beautiful bedside manner, answered every question that I asked her, was very reassuring and did the most beautiful job on my skin. She took care of the pain with numbing creams, she took her time, there was nothing rushed. Actually the whole experience has been that of sheer joy from the beginning to the end, I’d definitely recommend her to anyone.”

And she added: “When I look at myself in the mirror, I really feel that Dr Judy Todd’s treatments have really served my face well and have definitely turned back the clock and made me look younger. I’m making this a priority for me now.
