Uniquely Purified to FDA-approved treatment for frown lines
Spa West is proud to offer Xeomin, an FDA-approved treatment for frown lines that is uniquely purified to remove unnecessary proteins*. Xeomin is not only the choice for many of our patients, it’s the choice of Gwyneth Paltrow, groundbreaking entrepreneur with her lifestyle brand, goop.®
It’s no secret that Gwyneth Paltrow is an open book when it comes to trying new beauty, wellness and skincare regimens. Sharing what works with women is a core part of her philosophy, which is why she’s talking about Xeomin.
How XEOMIN Works
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Xeomin blocks the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
Schedule an appointment today to talk about Xeomin and to see if Gwyneth’s choice is the right choice for you. We look forward to seeing you!
*Studies have not been performed to determine whether the presence or absence of complexing/unnecessary proteins has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy.
