I’d read enough horror stories online about people who’d had surgery to improve their appearance, and although I knew they were the exceptions to the rule, being put under general anaesthetic and operated on was a big step, and of course, the last thing I wanted to do was worry my family.

So for a long time I’d been content with getting my Botox, exercising and eating healthily, only, lately, although I was happy with the way that my face was looking, I couldn’t help but notice my neck was starting to sag and I had a few deep lines across it.

As much as I tried to put it out of my mind, every time I looked in the mirror, I couldn’t keep my eyes off my ageing neck. Later that summer, when I looked at holiday photos of me and Rick, all I could see was those pesky lines.


I noticed I’d started to put my hands under my chin when I talked to clients in the salon too, just to hide it, and my confidence was starting to suffer. So, without telling my daughter or husband, in January 2018 I booked an appointment at Health and Aesthetics in Surrey.

Ultherapy Neck lift


Speaking to Dr Rekha Tailor*, I was surprised to learn there were plenty of options available to me without going under the knife, including a non-surgical skin-tightening treatment called Ultherapy.

Using ultrasound energy to gently heat the tissue and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, it tightened and lifted the skin.

The 45-minute procedure was slightly painful, and I felt a stinging sensation as the laser touched my neck and vibrated, but it was over so quickly.

The results weren’t instant but after a few months, I started to notice a real difference, with the lines having faded and my skin looking much tighter. It meant I had the confidence to wear lower cut tops again for work and I wasn’t constantly trying to hide my neck with my hands – not an easy task for a hairdresser!

I went back to have the procedure again in January 2019 and 2020, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Now, I feel it’s not just my face that looks younger than my years, but my neck too.

It just goes to show that there are natural ways of turning back the clock without resorting to going under the knife.
