What is better than a HydraFacial?

At Total Glow, we elevate the HydraFacial. Our signature HydraFacial treatments are designed to deliver clearer, more hydrated, younger-looking skin. So how do we do it?

WE KNOW SKIN. Total Glow is the only premier HydraFacial authority in the Bay Area since 2003. We have performed more than 10,000 HydraFacial treatments since our opening in 2017, each one blended with our comprehensive knowledge of targeted boosters and product delivery.

Your unique HydraFacial experience

With four beautiful rooms and four HydraFacial devices, Total Glow is able to deliver your treatment now. Unlike other practices where patients must wait weeks or even months, we are ready to give you the glow you deserve.

Every HydraFacial is customized to the patient, but will follow the same basic steps:

Hydrafacial Palo Alto

Step 1

Each treatment starts with Visia, a digital photo analysis of your skin and personal skin care consultation to understand the root of your skin concerns.

Step 2

Your customized Palo Alto HydraFacial includes a cleansing, gentle exfoliation of dead skin cells, along with a salicylic acid or glycolic acid peel to dislodge deep debris and prepare your skin for extractions of congestion—from blackheads and impurities. This helps to refine pores, clear acne, and prevent the formation of new breakouts.

Step 3

The last phase is for hydration, which infuses antioxidants and hyaluronic acids. This is followed by exclusive Environ Vitamin Therapy for facial lymphatic drainage and targeted boosters for skin concerns—the Platinum of HydraFacials. This step in particular makes treatment significantly more potent and results exponentially more noticeable.

Comprehensive aftercare

All this is combined with our own personal Korean skincare secrets to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested pores, hyperpigmentation, and acne, while boosting cell renewal. We will outline a complete program for you that you can trust will support your Total Glow.

What sets Total Glow apart?

We are the only Black Diamond Provider in the Palo Alto area and the only provider in the Bay Area with four luxurious treatment rooms equipped with four of the latest, cutting-edge HydraFacial devices.

Total Glow excels in combining the best of HydraFacial, targeted medical boosters, and exclusive access to Environ professional products.

We started as a skincare and wellness practice and continue to devote our resources to extensive skin care training, education and staff development. At Total Glow, we dedicate full-time specialization and focus in order to remain an authority in skin care.

Compromise nothing – how we maintain our standards

While Terrie Absher-Kochman is the founder of Total Glow, and certainly a draw for patients seeking facial rejuvenation, she maintains her standard of treatment across our entire team of providers.

Terrie personally trains our Total Glow aestheticians for two months before they do even the simplest procedures. She trains them for over six months before they deliver deluxe treatments. This hands-on training features real world application—ensuring our providers are not only proficient in the technical delivery of procedures, but also that they understand the theories and concepts behind skin types and skin treatment. This well-rounded approach to training ensures the standard is never compromised.

FAQ

How does it work?

HydraFacial MD uses a unique Vortex-Fusion serum delivery system. This multi-step treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and removes impurities and dead skin cells while infusing your skin with antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and other nutrients.

What can I expect during the treatment?

There is no discomfort during a HydraFacial MD treatment. It is often described as feeling like a "cool paintbrush moving slowly over your face." Since there is no downtime, you may apply make-up and resume normal activities after your facial.

What are the results?

The HydraFacial MD serums help to effectively diminish environmental damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and firm your skin for long-term results you can see and feel immediately.

Is it safe?

Yes! HydraFacial MD is a safe and effective treatment with zero downtime. Many clients call this the “lunchtime facial” since you can resume normal activity immediately after the treatment. If you wish to learn more, contact us today and schedule a consultation for one of the best treatments of Hydrafacial Bay Area has to offer.

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!
