Xeomin Pre and Post Injection Instructions

Xeomin treatment involves the injection of highly diluted, individualized doses of botulinum toxin A into (or in close proximity to) overactive facial muscles which are responsible for wrinkles. Xeomin relaxes muscle(s) by diminishing their ability to contract. The following Xeomin injection Self-Care instructions have been prepared specifically for our patients.


  • For one week before treatment, please avoid the following medications: Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, Naproxen, Excedrin (all OTC pain pills except Tylenol), vitamin E, Vitamin A (Tretinoin, Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Triluma), Gingko Biloba, Omega-3 fatty acids, cod liver oil, CoQ10, garlic and ginger.
  • Avoid sun exposure to the area to be treated one week before treatment.
  • Do not take ANY muscle relaxing medications (example: Soma or Flexaril) at least one month before treatment.
  • If you have a special event or vacation coming up, please keep in mind that you may want to schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. (All of these factors may increase risk of bruising and swelling).
  • If you develop a cold / flu, cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. in the area to be treated prior to your appointment, we recommend that you please reschedule your appointment until it resolves.
  • It is recommended to discontinue Retin-A two (2-3) days before treatment to avoid any increased redness and irritation.
  • It is recommended that you wait at least 2 weeks to have botulinum toxin treatments performed if you have previously had cosmetic treatments with laser, ultrasound, peels, facials or micro-dermabrasion.



  • Remain upright for 6 hours following treatment. No lying down or bending over for 6 hours.
  • Keep the treated areas clean. Light make-up coverage is acceptable if desired.
  • You may apply ice for 5 minutes every 1⁄2 hour if there is any pain or swelling. Any bruising will eventually resolve on its own, typically within one to two weeks.
  • If post-injection bruising is noticed, consider using the OTC homeopathic natural remedy Arnica Montana, which has been shown to rapidly relieve and even prevent bruising. Arnica is available at most health food stores and is safe (free of reported side-effects).
  • As always, wear at least SPF 30 sun block when appropriate and avoid exposure to intense, direct sunlight and heat (example: sun lamp steam, sauna) for at least two to three days.
  • Move the facial muscles (frown, smile, raise eyebrows) that have been treated throughout the rest of the day. This will help the muscles absorb the Xeomin.
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Do not rub or massage the areas treated for 24 hours.
  • Do not take aspirin containing products (see above) for the next 24 hours. These agents may increase bruising/bleeding at the injection site.  Tylenol may be taken.
  • Avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week after treatment. These items may increase bleeding and bruising.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment. These items may contribute to increased swelling or irritation.
  • Avoid the use of Retin-A or similar products (ex. Kinerase, Tazarac) 2 days after treatment to avoid increased irritation or redness.
  • Avoid cosmetic treatments such as laser, ultrasound, peels, facials or micro-dermabrasion for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Try to avoid wearing makeup until the day after treatment. Earlier use may cause pustules. If you must wear makeup we recommend a good quality mineral makeup for the face.
  • Avoid wearing hats or headbands after treatment.
  • Please report to your provider if any increased pain, increased swelling, redness, blisters, or itching immediately, should it occur following your treatment.
  • The onset of muscle relaxation usually begins in 7-10 days, but optimal results may take up to 2 weeks.
  • *NOTE*: Results may vary. If there is partial improvement of a treated site, and re-treatment is desired, a second treatment may be performed no sooner than 2 weeks after the primary treatment. There is a subsequent charge for any “touch–up’s” or additional treatment.
    Please contact us immediately should there be any side effects or questions regarding your treatment with Xeomin.


Frequently Ask & Questions

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a purer form of botulinum toxin. Xeomin® was FDA-approved in 2011. Other types of FDA approved botulinum toxin includes Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau.

What is the Xeomin Challenge?

We are using Merz Aesthetics, the manufacturer of Xeomin, to give the aesthetic community the opportunity to try Xeomin at an introductory discount.

How long does Xeomin last?

Most patients will see the full effect on days 3 – 7 and muscle relaxation may last up to 3 months. A clinical study that tested Xeomin versus other botulinum toxin in the frown lines concluded that Xeomin demonstrated a more rapid onset and a longer duration of treatment effect than other botulinum toxin. A different study looking at the crow’s feet concluded that Xeomin worked and lasted as long as other botulinum toxin.

What areas of my face can I get injected & how many units?

Three areas around the eyes are the most commonly injected: frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Other areas on the face may be injected depending on your injector’s expertise.

What is the price for the areas injected?

The first area of injection includes an injection fee of $99 + $3/unit of Xeomin. You must activate Xperiencerewards.com, which give you a discount of $50.  Therefore, 20 units of Xeomin is $149 minus $50 rewards credit, which equals $99..

Each additional area includes an injection fee of $39 + $3/unit of Xeomin.

20 UNITS = $99
10 UNITS = $69

Who will be injecting my face?

How are you offering this at such a low price?

Merz Aesthetics is offering this introductory offer to aesthetic influencers at an amazing price to try Xeomin for the first time. In order to qualify, you must not have had Xeomin in the past 90 days, pass medical screening questions and sign waiver and consent forms. 

What if I need a touch up?

There is no injection fee for any touch ups. You are charged $3/unit for the touch up.

What if I want another treatment in 3-4 months?

You are able to receive treatment again depending on your injector’s availability schedule.  However, we CANNOT guarantee that the offer of $99 per 20 units of Xeomin will be available at a future date.

What are the potential side effects?

Various symptoms such as asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, blurred vision, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence, and breathing difficulties have been observed from hours to weeks following the injection.

There have been reports of death related to the spread of botulinum toxin from swallowing or breathing difficulties. You MUST seek immediate medical attention if swallowing, speech, or respiratory disorders occur.

Hypersensitivity reactions such as anaphylaxis, serum sickness, urticaria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea have been reported. Any hypersensitivity to neurotoxin, human albumin, or sucrose can lead to life threatening anaphylaxis. If you experience any of the symptoms, then immediate medical attention is required.

Corneal exposure, ulceration, or ectropion has been reported. The loss of orbicularis muscle can lead to complications.

Xeomin also contains albumin, which is a derivative of human blood. Therefore, there is a theoretical risk of viral diseases, CJD, or vCJD, although none has ever been reported.

What are the contra-indications?

Xeomin is contraindicated in the following patients with known hypersensitivity to botulinum toxin or other components in the formulation or an infection at the site of injection.

Patients with peripheral motor neuropathy diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junctional disorders (e.g., myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) are at increased risk and cannot be injected.
