What is a Xeomin?
Xeomin is an FDA-approved neurotoxin used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Xeomin does not contain any additives and is considered a “uniquely purified” injectable compared to other neurotoxins. Because Xeomin is not encased within a protein like some other neurotoxins, individuals do not develop antibodies (or immunity to the effects of Botulinum toxin A) with repeated Xeomin injections.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin works by relaxing the muscles that pull on the skin. By relaxing these muscles, visible wrinkles flatten out and over time the skin remodels without the influence of wrinkle-creating facial muscles.
Our licensed medical aesthetics team will work with you directly to recommend the best treatments to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives and goals. If this is your first time receiving medical aesthetics treatment with milk + honey, a consultation is required.

Xeomin injections can be performed on average in about 15 – 20 minutes.

Xeomin injectables fall at a 1 on the pain scale on a pain scale of 1 to 5. (1 – least pain; 5 – most pain.)
Is there downtime after a Xeomin treatment?
There is minimal to no downtime after a Xeomin treatment. You may resume your daily activities or return to work after receiving treatment.
Mild redness or bruising may occur at injection sites. Redness will typically resolve within 30 minutes to one hour. Bruising may last for several weeks. Mild soreness may be present lasting hours to days. Severe reactions rarely occur, but a comprehensive review of your medical history, medications, history of reactions should be discussed with your provider to minimize that risk.
We do recommend a two-week minimum separation from special events to avoid the presence of bruising.
How long until I notice a difference with Xeomin?
Xeomin can take up to 5 to 7 days to take effect.
How long will results from a Xeomin treatment last?
Xeomin results typically last approximately 2.5 to 4 months but may last shorter or longer. Repeated treatments will be necessary for continued effect.
How much does Xeomin treatment cost?
Xeomin treatments are priced according to the number of units used during the procedure. The amount of Xeomin each patient will need differs based on the number of facial areas treated and the strength of each targeted facial muscle. Pricing changes over time and ranges based on units used.
Are there contraindications for Xeomin treatments?

- Are allergic to any of the ingredients in Xeomin
- Had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc, Dysport, or Botox

Will I receive Xeomin post-care instructions?
Yes, you will receive full post-treatment instructions from your provider in addition to the following:
- We encourage patients to use the muscles more for the first hour or so after injection as this may help maximize the effects of the medication.
- Please contact us immediately if you experience significant bruising, pain, or any other problems.
