Facial neuromodulator injectable treatments that minimize fine lines and wrinkles without the need for invasive surgical procedures by reducing the movement of the facial muscles. Our cosmetic dermatology experts at NorCal Dermatology Group can provide BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin®, or Dysport® injections with skill and precision, ensuring you achieve natural results. Explore the art of ageless beauty by learning more about our various types of injectables.

Our Injectable Options

Each of the following injectables is composed of botulinum toxin and can be used in many of the same areas of the face, with some slight variations.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a common name in the world of ageless beauty. It was FDA-approved for reducing fine lines and wrinkles in 2002. This injectable can be used on many areas of the face, including the forehead, around the mouth and eyes, and the jaw.

After treatment, your results may take a few days to take full effect. However, BOTOX® Cosmetic requires minimal downtime and recovery, allowing you to return to many aspects of your daily routine right away. The results last around three to six months, depending on how fast your body metabolizes the BOTOX® Cosmetic.


Xeomin® is fairly new onto the scene and has makeup similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, meaning it works in much the same way. However, Xeomin® contains no proteins, unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic. Because of this, some patients find that Xeomin® works better for them. Many patients utilize this injectable around the frown and worry lines.

Xeomin® also lasts around three to six months and requires little to no downtime.


Dysport® is also composed of botulinum toxin and is FDA-approved to treat lines between the eyebrows. Treatment time and downtime with Dysport® are similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®. Your results will also last around three to six months.

If you love your new look, each injectable allows you to get routine treatments to maintain your results.
