Veins do an important job of transporting blood through the body, but sometimes they take a wrong turn, and end up sticking out and creating a cosmetic disturbance. Total Glow in the Bay Area offers the latest in cutting edge technology to minimize the appearance of spider and varicose veins, improving your aesthetics while giving you the confidence to face the world uninhibited.

What are spider veins?

When a small vein is not able to properly integrate into the normal flow of blood, it gets pooled up and becomes noticeable to the eye. This is what we call a spider vein, because it looks like lines in a spider’s web.

There is nothing dangerous about a spider vein, but if enough of these form, it can be very distracting to the eye and completely dominate a person’s appearance. Luckily, we have many excellent spider vein treatments at Total Glow in Palo Alto to help reduce and fade spider veins so you can start feeling more positively about your looks.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are large, protruding veins that often appear in tired legs that ache and cause pain. These veins may be purple or blue in color and they may twist and bulge, causing an unsightly appearance. They are caused by pressure on the extremities. People who stand for long periods of time at work are especially susceptible to varicose vein formation. Varicose vein treatments at Total Glow in Palo Alto can help to minimize and heal these veins, offering relief, well being and an improvement in quality of life.
