The Environ DF II is a cutting edge device that enhances the skin’s permeability so it can better absorb nutrients, serums, vitamins and antioxidants. Pulsed energy disrupts the skin long enough to receive cellular nutrition, while sound waves deliver peptides. The Environ DF II is also instrumental in improving the skin’s collagen and elastin production.

What is the Environ DF II?

In order for the skin to properly absorb vitamins and nutrients, these compounds must successfully move through the skin’s upper layers. That’s where the Environ DF II comes in. Developed by MIT scientists and the Founder and Scientific Director of Environ, Dr. Des Fernandes, this innovative device combines sonophoresis (ultrasound energy) and iontophoresis (electrical energy) to help take your skin rejuvenation to a whole new and exciting level.

The treatment is similar to having multiple facials at the same time due to the device's ability to enhance the skin using vitamins and growth factors. Environ DF II is painless and relaxing and lasts about 20 minutes on average. This treatment is excellent for treating sun damage, rosacea, signs of aging such as wrinkles, acne, hyperpigmentation and more. Environ DF II is used throughout Asia, Europe, and here at Total Glow. We offer it by itself or in combination with other treatments.

Updated September 22nd, 2020

Hello from Total Glow,

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


Total Glow MD is open per San Mateo County's guidelines.  We are providing all services including our expert skincare services with the exception of Hydrafacials and a few other facial treatments that are currently restricted. Our Wellness, body toning and muscle sculpting, injectables, IV's  and more are still available!   Try our new exclusive proprietary treatments for a jumpstart to get back that healthy glow.


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!
