Our signature HydraFacial treatments are designed to deliver clearer, more hydrated, younger-looking skin. So how do we do it? WE KNOW SKIN. As a provider of HydraFacial since 2003, Total Glow’s Founder is the premier HydraFacial authority in the Bay Area.
We have performed more than 15,000 HydraFacial treatments since our opening in 2017, each one blended with our comprehensive knowledge of targeted boosters and product delivery utilizing Environ, the best medical grade skincare line. Our deep love for skincare and dedication to providing patients with a uniquely luxurious experience has secured Total Glow’s position as an exclusive local provider of Environ and its California Flagship and training center. As such, we take each patient's customized HydraFacial to a level no one else can by incorporating Environ’s state-of-the-art products.
At our medical spa near Palo Alto HydraFacial offers immediate improvement to the skin’s tone, texture, hydration, and overall appearance with no downtime or painful treatment. While treatment is personalized using special boosting serums, the HydraFacial produces consistently beautiful results for clients of all skin types and tones. When you combine the dependability of the HydraFacial process with the knowledge and practical experience of the Total Glow team of specialists, you can rest assured that your treatment will result in success.
Your unique HydraFacial experience
With five beautiful skincare rooms and five devices for HydraFacials Palo Alto patients coming to Total Glow are able to receive their treatment now. Unlike other practices where clients must wait weeks or even months, we are ready to give you the glow you want. Every HydraFacial is customized to the client, but will follow the same basic steps:
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.
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.
In this phase, HydraFacial MD®’s gentle vacuum suction device removes any impurities or gunk that may be clogging up your pores. This healthy alternative to “popping” clogged pores leaves your skin looking and feeling clean and gorgeous!
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.
We believe skin has a life of its own.
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.
We are the only Black Diamond Provider in the Palo Alto area and the only provider in the Bay Area with five luxurious treatment rooms equipped with five 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, providing the best experience with HydraFacial Palo Alto has to offer.
While Terrie Absher-Kochman is the founder of Total Glow, and certainly a draw for clients 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.

Risks and side effects associated with the HydraFacial are rare and minimal. However, some clients experience mild skin sensitivity after treatment. As the HydraFacial is designed to clear pores, some clients may experience “purging” after treatment. This minor side effect happens due to your skin pushing out excess sebum and is an indication that your treatment was effective. This side effect typically improves with ongoing treatment.
In addition to the comfort and efficacy of HydraFacial treatment, perhaps one of the reasons it’s become so popular is its ability to treat clients of all ages and skin types. For example, teenagers prone to hormonal acne can benefit from this game-changing treatment just as much as older clients who would like to treat concerns such as wrinkles and sun damage. However, some clients may not be candidates for HydraFacial treatment, including those with rosacea, sunburns, autoimmune diseases, skin cancer, or active rashes or infections. In addition, pregnant clients should postpone their treatment.
No. Not only is the HydraFacial pain-free, but most clients find it extremely relaxing. While other extraction methods involve pinching and pressure, HydraFacial’s ability to clear pores using suction allows for better results with more comfortable treatment.
You can expect to see a smoother, more youthful appearance after the injections. Following treatment, results are visible within 3–5 days. However, it can take up to 2 weeks to see full results. Dysport, Xeomin and BOTOX are long-lasting with results for 3-5 months.

While the HydraFacial requires no real recovery, you should allow your skin to rest for the remainder of the day. This will allow your skin to absorb all of the nutrients delivered during treatment. The following day, you may apply makeup as normal.
