‘Today I went to the @hairbybrendan salon and was ‘face read’ by the incredibly talented @queen_of_youth_official who did #profilo which is an injected moisturizer… First I bit the bumpy skin, but even after an hour it faded.
“I did this last year and it’s just amazing, much less invasive than the fillers I had many years ago and I didn’t really like the results. It’s softer and it’s natural.
‘Then @hairbybrendan dried my @goldclasshair… I totally feel like a million bucks.. well kinda. My herniated disc in my neck and my aging menopausal body has other ideas! #gifted.’
Candid: The mother-of-two opened up about her addiction struggles last year after a stint in rehab
It comes after the Liberty X star shared a before and after photo of herself from the day she entered rehab last year as she looked ahead to 2022.
She was open about her battle with alcohol and shared a photo of herself when she was “swollen with a failing liver”.

She wrote: ‘So.. 2021 for me was a whole bunch of different things. But it turned out to be the best year of my life – a life beyond my wildest dreams.
Congratulations! She began in her caption: “Celebrating my 9 months with a little beauty!”
“And with that, @hughhanley and I are working to help others change their habits and lifestyles from the months ahead, so watch our updates!”
“But, today, not only am I grateful to have achieved 8 months of sobriety, but my body, my mind and my soul have been filled with love. I had to learn to love myself in order to be well again!
‘The first photo was taken on the first day I entered the @priorygroup on April 27, 2021. – scared – alone – hopeless – gray and bloated from a failing liver and pancreas I wanted to document my journey for myself and now i’m ready to show what the body can do with hard work and a clear mind.
“The other is right now (took me ages to fish for similar panties, God knows where my sports bra is) – happy – self-loving and self-care – hopeful – energetic, ambitious and healthy.”

She wrote: ‘It’s not so much a #fitness article.. it’s a journey, it’s about recovery. Anything is possible if you want it and work for it!
“I don’t have any resolutions this year because all I need right now is my health, my sobriety, my friends back and a family that doesn’t have to worry about me anymore.
‘At this time last year, I didn’t even have the power to do it…I just prayed for another day. Make today count. What’s on your list? Please share the reflection and the hope.
Wow: She was open about her battle with alcohol and shared a photo of herself when she was ‘swollen with a failing liver’
Michelle quit drinking eight months ago after her addiction to drugs and alcohol left her close to death.
The star previously revealed she didn’t go a day without alcohol for three years before checking into rehab in April.
Confessing that getting help was the hardest part of her journey during an appearance on Loose Women in September, Michelle said: ‘It’s the first step and it’s the hardest to admit you have a problem and that you are helpless against drugs and alcohol.
She explained that it wasn’t a “specific event” that prompted her admission to rehab, but that she found herself “locked in on her own, lying and manipulating situations.”
Michelle revealed: “I got very very sick, it was a five year process. About three years, it took me a bit, I was happy in my addiction.
“Sometimes it’s hard to tell you have an addiction because sometimes it’s fun, it’s reality, it’s [alcohol] was my friend in need.
‘Any feeling, sad, happy, the sun is shining, a party – any excuse. It really grabbed me.
