Beauty's Best Kept Secret
At Total Glow Medspa in Palo Alto, we believe that beauty comes from balance. We provide a transformative med spa experience combining founder Terrie Absher's Korean heritage, Ayurvedic education, and modern clinical practices. Using both the advanced technology of Western medical spas and Eastern principles, Total Glow provides in-depth digital skin analysis and private consultations to give each client whole body solutions to natural beauty and wellness.
Certified HydraFacial Practitioner 2003-2022
After struggling with rosacea, acne, acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and in more recent years hormonal imbalances and preventative solutions to aging skin, Terrie knew firsthand the need for real solutions to her skincare problems.
This was the impetus to create a medspa in Menlo Park where clients could enjoy a holistic approach incorporating nutrition, Eastern Ayurveda, aromatherapy, and whole-body wellness in balanced treatment plans tailored to their needs. Ever passionate about improving her clients’ complexions, Terrie created many strategic treatments for anti-aging, detoxification, and everyday renewal and rejuvenation. Terrie is the Environ Practice Management Educator, a licensed Medical aesthetician, a Certified Eastern Ayurvedic Health Counselor, and a Certified HydraFacial practitioner who has been administering the HydraFacial since 2003.
—Terrie Absher, Founder
Each member of our Total Glow team understands our holistic approach to care. Terrie trains each one of our employees to be a seamless extension of the Total Glow mission. Our Palo Alto MedSpa team members balance top-tier medical knowledge with personal client care to give you an exceptional experience. From the moment you walk into our office, you will receive compassionate care focused on your health and comfort.
Nothing else comes close
Terrie was one of the first aesthetic masters to learn how to use HydraFacial back in 2003. Over the years, she has refined the Total Glow HydraFacial to incorporate other effective treatments, such as Ballancer Pro for lymphatic drainage. Terrie’s passion for balancing holistic Eastern wellness practices with advanced skincare treatments makes the Total Glow HydraFacial experience unlike anything else you can find in the skincare market today. Feel the difference of brilliance, experience, and balance with a Total Glow HydraFacial in Menlo Park.
Blending ancient truths with modern science
For thousands of years, guardians of our shared human knowledge have passed down the lessons taught to them to their communities, protecting them and keeping them healthy. It has only been recently that our modern medical technology has been able to quantifiably validate what some of these ancient wellness practices have shown for millennium.
At Total Glow, we consider it a great honor and responsibility to continue this tradition. We learn as much as we can from the wellness practitioners who came before us, while deeply scrutinizing these practices to ensure the highest levels of safety and scientific rigor in all we do. Through this practice, we are able to unlock a deep sense of wellness and biological harmony within our clients.
Environ Skincare California Flagship
As the Practice Management Educator for Environ Skincare, Terrie trains other aesthetic providers across the country on the best ways to incorporate Environ’s potent solutions into their practices. Total Glow is the largest Environ flagship location and training center in Northern California, and as such, our Menlo Park MedSpa providers have exclusive access to advanced Environ devices that are not available to other providers such as the Triawave and DF II.

The life-changing experience of having a custom-crafted HydraFacial at Total Glow is undeniably beneficial. Our four decadent HydraFacial treatments are simply in a league of their own. Each one combines the experience of our practitioners gained through the delivery of tens of thousands of procedures across 16 years of specialization and intensive training. Each one is blended with our comprehensive knowledge of the Environ Skin Care line and our time-honored Eastern methods of holistic delivery.
Emsculpt treatments use the power of RF energy coupled with high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to decrease fat and increase muscle. RF energy coagulates fat cells inside the body, while HIFEM energy stimulates muscle growth by flexing your muscles thousands of times per treatment session. Total Glow is proud to be recognized by Emsculpt manufacturer BTL as a Center for Excellence. Our highly skilled providers make sure your treatment delivers safe, effective results every time.
Keep your look current with TriaWave. Triawave’s unique noninvasive delivery system stimulates the building blocks of youth throughout your face. PicoWave microcurrents tones the face and firms the skin by encouraging collagen production and muscle development. Meanwhile, sonic waves open pores to allow our Environ skin care products heal deeper, and pulses of iontophoresis deliver nourishing vitamins and peptides to your cells. Experience wave after wave after wave of deep facial healing with TriaWave.
At Total Glow, we’re happy to see the larger medical aesthetic community embracing what we’ve known for years: when it comes to beauty, it’s what’s inside that counts. We’ve been offering Bay Area IV Therapy Treatments for years to make sure our clients have the nutrients and vitamins their bodies need to fight aging and maintain their healthy radiance. Whether you are looking for a boost to combat jet leg, some extra hydration, or for your body to be at its peak, our Total Glow IV therapies give you the energy and nutrients you need to be at your best.
Clients often seek out the services of a med spa because their over-the-counter products are simply not up to the task of rejuvenating skin that has faced years of stress, aging, and environmental damage. At Total Glow, we provide medical-grade skincare products that are innovative and effective and have an international reputation for successfully treating even the most challenging skin conditions.
Experience true balance at Total Glow
I have had facials in Korea, Japan, LA, all of Europe, and there is nothing that comes close to the facial that I get at Total Glow. I have been coming to Total Glow now for six months, every month, for the Elevated Glow HydraFacial and the LED light therapy. My skin has never looked better, I get complimented all the time on my skin, and I’ve never felt better about the products that I’m putting on my face. I was a little skeptical at first of the Environ products they have available, but now that I’ve incorporated a few of the items into my routine, I’ve seen massive changes in my skin... — E.A.
Wow, wow, wow!!! I have been getting facials for years and after experiencing Total Glow I realize everybody else is doing it wrong. Terrie is an absolute HydraFacial master and the entire TG experience from greeting through departure is world-class. Menlo is very lucky to have the locally owned TG in the community and I look forward to them forming a partnership with the new Park James Hotel.— W.S.
I can't believe I am just discovering this gem! To say they give the best facials is an understatement! I've had advanced HydraFacials with Environ treatments both with Terrie and Janessa and I always leave glowing! The staff at Total Glow are so sweet and genuine and really know their stuff when it comes to skin health. The products are incredible too!— S.M.
I just came back from my second appointment, and it was an amazing experience! I drive far just to be able to see Terrie and Janessa, not only are they skin authorities, but they are kind, gentle, and genuinely want their clients to have a great experience. It is a lovely clinic that has easy parking and knowledgeable aestheticians! Thank you, Janessa and Terrie!— A. H.
My first treatment was with Tina, who is a great example of what Total Glow is all about. She has gorgeous skin and is so warm and friendly. She immediately made me feel even more comfortable. She took me into one of their well-appointed treatment rooms where we had a consultation. She introduced me to the owner, Terrie, who is also beautiful, knowledgeable, and oh so gracious.— S. Murdoch
