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.

Spider & Varicose Veins

What are the cause of spider and varicose veins?

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Prolonged sitting or standing
  • Pregnancy
  • Fluctuations in weight

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.

Hello from Total Glow,

It's time to get your skin and whole body back on track and healthy, toned and glowing!

We have implemented Covid-19 guidelines for our Team and for your health and safety that go beyond standard compliance.


Once you've secured your appointment, please follow our guidelines:

  1. Text or call upon arrival. Our large private parking lot is steps away from our entrance and exit doors. We will contact you and let you in as doors are kept locked.
  2. Masks and hand sanitation are required upon entering. Non-contact temperature check will be administered.
  3. COVID-19 forms are signed and health questionnaire completed
  4. We use hospital surgical suite grade UVC sterilization (not wands) for complete sterilization together with standard disinfectant protocols.
  5. Your Provider wears Shields and masks and is receiving health checks and temperature checks as well.
  6. Your Provider will escort you to a sterilized room without contact with other clients/patients
  7. You will be checked out for your service and product purchases in the treatment room rather than the front desk.
  8. We have a separate exit through our backdoor directly to the parking lot for your safety to ensure social distancing and no contact with anyone entering our facility.

Thank you for being on time as we stagger our appointments. We have added large breaks between our appointments as well for treatment room checkout, and product replenishment.  This also provides time to complete the surgical grade sterilization process after each and every appointment. 


With four Hydrafacial machines in our beautiful treatment rooms and medical suites for body and facial procedures as well numerous other modalities available, we will do our best to get you in promptly.


We hope to see you soon and help you get a total glow from head to toe!
