Anti Wrinkle Injections

Smooth out dynamic lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance at So Medical Aesthetics in Colchester.


Anti wrinkle injections, commonly known as Botox, are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause the visible signs of dynamic ageing, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

They can be administered in the forehead, crows feet around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows. At our aesthetics clinic in Colchester, we can even use anti wrinkle injections to treat teeth grinding and excessive underarm sweating.


How Do Anti Wrinkle Injections Work?

Anti wrinkle injections utilise a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyse specific facial muscles. The botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals to the targeted muscles, preventing them from contracting. As a result, it softens the appearance of existing fine lines and halts new ones from forming. 

Anti wrinkle injections are commonly used to:

  • Weaken overactive muscle contractions.
  • Minimise unwanted dimpling or creasing.
  • Reduce platysmal bands in the neck.
  • Tighten and lift the neck and jawline.
  • Slim the jawline.

Treatment overview


The treatment can take up 45 minutes from start to finish, depending on the injection site. 


Anti wrinkle injections should be administered every 3 to 5 months to maintain results.


With no immediate downtime, you can return to your normal activities straight away. Just avoid alcohol, direct sunlight and makeup for at least 24 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I Suitable For Anti Wrinkle Injections?

Anti wrinkle injections are suitable for most people aged 25 to 65 who want to smooth out facial lines. However, they are not suitable for pregnant or nursing women, and anyone with a neurological disease.

Do Anti Wrinkle Injections Hurt?

The discomfort associated with anti wrinkle injections is generally minimal. But, to ensure that you feel comfortable, we can administer a topical numbing cream beforehand.

What Is The Difference Between Anti Wrinkle Injections & Dermal Fillers?

Anti wrinkle injections reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by temporarily paralysing the muscles that cause them. In contrast, dermal fillers are used to smooth out static wrinkles by increasing volume in the skin.

Are Anti Wrinkle Injections The Same As Botox ®?

Yes! Botox® is the brand name of the botulinum toxin used in anti wrinkle injections.

Are Anti Wrinkle Injections Safe?

When administered by a registered medical practitioner like Nurse Sophie at So Medical Aesthetics, anti wrinkle injections are entirely safe. You may experience minor side effects after your treatment, such as bruising or swelling, but you’re unlikely to encounter any serious complications.

Before & After


“I would highly recommend Sophie as have had my first Botox treatment with her and am so amazed by the results. I was rather nervous of my forehead looking frozen but it looks very natural and has made me feel so much better about myself. Sophie is very professional but easy to talk to and instantly made me feel at ease. I’m so pleased with the treatment and its definitely money well spent. I’ll be returning soon”
