Broadchurch star Sarah Parish has admitted to undergoing a £3,500 facelift.
The 48-year-old actress credits the non-surgical procedure with making it easier to film.
She also points out that it’s banished her “little jowls”.
“I had treatment four months ago, and it’s still working now,” she told the Daily Mail.
“The difference I feel in my skin is incredible; there’s definitely a tightening feeling and I’ve lost those little jowls that I had before.
“The texture and quality of my skin feels completely different and we’re only four months in so it’s just going to keep getting better and better.
“The reason I came to have Ultherapy was because I was noticing on camera it was becoming increasingly hard to light me in certain ways because I was losing laxity in my skin and becoming a little bit jowly, and slightly hollowed [in my cheeks].
“I wanted a non-invasive treatment, that didn’t involve scary needles or knives or anything scary.
“I’ve really, really noticed a difference, and it’s been much, much easier to just shove me in front of a camera and film me, rather than having lights being moved left, right and centre to negate certain hollows and nasties that I had before.”
Earlier this month, the star candidly spoke about how the devastation of losing her baby daughter put an emotional strain on her marriage.
The Broadchurch actress and her husband James Murray lost their girl Ella-Jayne in January 2009, just eight months after they welcomed her into the world.
In a brave column for the MailOnline, the star admitted that they initially didn’t know how to best support each other through such a heartbreaking time, and that the founding of the Murray Parish Trust saved their relationship .
“It would take the most emotionally mature people to be able to cope in that situation, and to comfort one another in the correct way,” she said.
“I can only say now, eight years later, that I’m not sure we were able to do that at the the time. We have made mistakes and done things that don’t work for each other – and you either end up together, or you don’t.”
Sarah credited the Murray Parish Trust – which was created in the memory of their daughter – with giving them something to focus on.
She explained how losing their girl meant they were both suffering equally but in their own separate form of sadness, and had to find a new perspective to help each other through it.
“I had support from my friends. But at home, Jim and I did things that didn’t work for each other,” she admitted.
“The pressure of grief is such that you end up separating or, miraculously, you don’t.”
