Nicki Chapman has revealed the sensational results of her £5,000 non-surgical neck lift after confessing to being ‘really conscious’ of her jawline.
The TV and radio presenter, 56, candidly opened up about her decision to spend £5,000 on a series of non-surgical cosmetic treatments to give her a neck lift.
The presenter – who rose to fame as a judge on Popstars and Pop Idol during the early noughties – admitted she ‘hated’ her neck being photographed before the treatments.
For the past year, she has been seeing one of the UK’s leading aesthetic practitioners, Dr Judy Todd, for a series of high-tech facial treatments.
To achieve her incredible results, the BBC Radio 2 star has undergone nitrogen plasma rejuvenation treatment NeoGen, combined with Morpheus8 micro-needling with radio frequency.

Speaking about the procedure, Nicki admitted she was very self-conscious before the neck lift and wouldn’t let anyone photograph her neck in profile.
Nicki said: ‘We’re all critical of something in our bodies, and for me it was the loose jowls and skin under my jawline. I was really conscious of it and I would never let people photograph my neck in profile.
‘I met Dr Judy Todd about a year ago and started having treatments every couple of months. My jawline, neck and chest have changed far more than I could ever have hoped. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results.’
‘Looking at the picture of myself at the beginning of this process, I can’t believe how jowly I am,’ the Escape To The Country presenter continued.
‘I’m going to be honest, I’m a 56-year-old woman, I’m not going to look like I’m 25, but looking at the pictures of me now without makeup and with no filters, it is a marked improvement. It’s so good to see the before and afters.’
Nicki started the process at the end of 2022, and since then, has had five treatments – roughly one every two months – to achieve her incredible results.
She first had four Morpheus8 micro-needing treatments to rejuvenate the skin and boost collagen, while the last was a medium strength NeoGen treatment to improve skin quality and reduce laxity and loose skin around the jawline and neck.
She splashed out £875 on the Morpheus8 treatments with Dr Todd, while the NeoGen set her back another £1,500.
The relatively-painless treatments take around 45 minutes each and have no downtime, but Nicki confessed her nerves about having anything done to her face.
Nicki said: ‘I was super nervous of having anything done to my face, but if you have a good doctor like Dr Judy there’s really nothing to worry about.

Wow! Nicki looks fresh-faced pictures taken after the procedure’s minimal downtime after seeing Dr Judy Todd at the end of 2022 – having had five treatments since that time

‘I’m also quite a wimp when it comes to pain, but the numbing cream she put on beforehand makes such a difference. If you have that on for 45 minutes before the treatment you can hardly feel anything.
‘You feel a bit of a sensation as the device goes round your face but it didn’t hurt and there was no bruising at all. My skin was red for about an hour after the treatment but after that my skin settled down and by the next day it had gone completely.’
What are NeoGen Plasma and Morpheus8 treatments?
NeoGen uses ultra-high radio frequency to convert pure nitrogen gas into nitrogen plasma.
A plasma is an electrically charged gas and the handpiece directs this thermal plasma into the layers of the skin without puncturing or burning the skin’s surface.
This creates controlled trauma which then boosts the natural regenerative mechanisms – effectively tricking the skin to boost levels of collagen and elastin.
This tailorable treatment is also effective in treating acne scarring, stretch marks, and is suitable for all ages and skin types – with results lasting years.
The Morpheus8 micro-needles inject radiofrequency energy into the skin with a series of tiny needles. The needles and the radiofrequency energy stimulate collagen.
The needles quickly penetrate the skin and withdraw immediately which creates a micro-trauma in the skin stimulating the healing response while radiofrequency uses heat to shrink wrap and tighten the skin.
It can be used on the face, neck and body for skin tightening and contouring.
‘The way that I work for TV and radio, I need to be available all the time, so I can’t have a treatment that’s going to take me out for two of three weeks,’ she continued.
‘With these treatments the recovery time was minimal, I would say 24 hours max, and even then it was only a little bit of redness, I could still go out.’
Nicki also took natural G Herbal SKIN supplements to help speed up her skin repair and boost the nutrient levels in the skin.
Dr Todd, who she first saw via a private consultation in London at the beginning of last year, has performed non-invasive treatments on former Strictly contestant Judy Murray, and more recently Strictly Head Judge Shirley Ballas.
At a consultation, Nicki was given a bespoke treatment programme tailored to her skin’s needs, including high-tech energy treatments to reverse the ageing process, reduce lines, wrinkles and laxity in the jawline, as well as alleviating pigmentation issues, and improving hydration and general skin quality.
The NeoGen treatment was performed all over her face, including around her eyes, and was also targeted along her jawline and her chest.
NeoGen is a state-of-the-art procedure which uses nitrogen plasma pulses to deliver controlled high temperatures deep inside the skin tissues and massively boosts collagen and elastin production, which reduces lines and wrinkles, and tightens up loose skin.
Nicki said of the process: ‘These changes didn’t happen overnight but after about six months I could see already see a huge difference.
‘My jawline was much more defined, my skin was brighter and more youthful and my little veins and sunspots were gone.
‘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.’
Dr Judy Todd add: ‘The treatments were specially tailored to meet Nicki’s needs and lifestyle.
Recovery time: Nicki claims her skin was only ‘red for about an hour’ after the treatment, but by the next day it had settled down, immediately revealing glowing, rejuvenated skin
Impressed: The presenter has said of her new look: ‘My jawline, neck and chest have changed far more than I could ever have hoped. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results’
Non-surgical: Nicki firstly received Morpheus8 micro-needing treatments to rejuvenate the skin and boost collagen, then NeoGen treatment to improve skin quality and reduce laxity
Face: The NeoGen treatment was performed all over her face, including around her eyes, and was also targeted along her jawline and her chest
‘We had to bear in mind that she could not have any downtime whatsoever because she was working for our biggest radio station plus filming out and about in the countryside for her popular TV show.
‘There was one opportunity earlier this year when she had a week off and so she chose to have a medium energy NeoGen treatment at this time,’ he went on.
‘This really sped up the rejuvenation process but she did have a few days of redness and downtime from this, but the results are much quicker this way, as one medium treatment is pretty much the equivalent of three lower energy treatments.
‘With lower energy treatments you will still get a result but the contraction and skin rejuvenation are more gradual.’
