Bay Area patients are busy professionals who desire to look and feel youthful, rejuvenated and refreshed without lengthy downtimes or discomfort. Our Bay Area BOTOX injections are amongst the best solutions for age-related wrinkles and fine lines, offering Palo Alto patients a safe, non-surgical way to roll back the clock. At Total Glow, our aestheticians and board certified plastic surgeon work together to strategically rejuvenate your skin, so you can return to your life energized for the future.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX technology is founded on the idea that the tiny muscles in the face contract over and over forming lines and creases. Once these tiny muscles are paralyzed, the lines can relax, providing you with a smoother complexion. BOTOX is made of bacterium Clostridium botulinum, a neurotoxin that can paralyze the facial muscles temporarily to achieve your cosmetic goals. Results can last up to a year, and treatment can be repeated to ensure maintenance of your improved aesthetics.

What are the Benefits of BOTOX?

Benefits of receiving injections of BOTOX in Palo Alto include:

  • Safe, effective and FDA-approved
  • Multiple uses, including the treatment of migraines and hyperhidrosis
  • Excellent solution for crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead furrows
  • Creates a more youthful, relaxed countenance
  • Improves self-confidence
  • Painless with no downtime
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive

Who makes the best BOTOX candidate?

Our Palo Alto BOTOX treatment is an excellent solution for any healthy patient with realistic expectations who is suffering from age-related facial wrinkles, lines, creases and folds. BOTOX is also a good solution for those looking to prevent future wrinkles from forming.

(Those clients with ALS, breathing disorders, bleeding disorders, heart disease or those taking blood thinners are not good candidates for BOTOX and will be directed towards more appropriate treatments.)

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?

BOTOX was the first to market and a household name. BOTOX helps reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles that can make you look angry, stressed and aged. It takes 3-4 days to take effect and lasts about 3-5 months.

Dysport provides fast, fabulous results. It’s been said that Dysport is quicker to take effect and (in some instances) lasts longer than BOTOX.

Xeomin is considered an alternative to BOTOX. Xeomin is unique because it’s “additive-free,” so your body won’t build up any antibodies to it over time. The results are long-lasting and perfect for clients who don’t feel comfortable with the additives in BOTOX injections!

Our Office The Total Glow Difference

When you come to Total Glow for treatment, you are entering an environment of total commitment to you. Terrie Absher Kochman, our founder and Sherpa, has implemented every measure to ensure each step of your journey is met with complete attention to detail.

Terrie trains every provider in the practice for months before allowing them to treat patients. This ensures each provider has “the touch” with each client, not only providing excellent results, but also making each patient as comfortable as possible.

FAQs about BOTOX injections in Palo Alto

How does it work?

BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin are neurotoxins strategically injected into the face to relax the muscle and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. They greatly improve the look of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet by reducing the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form.

What can I expect?

The non-surgical administration of BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin injections takes about 10-15 minutes. A very fine needle is inserted into the muscles of the targeted areas, quickly injecting small portions of the neurotoxin liquid. Some clients report mild, temporary discomfort from the treatments.

What are the results?

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.

Is it safe?

Yes! Dysport, Xeomin and BOTOX have all been aggressively tested and are approved by the FDA. Clients can receive treatment and return to normal activities right away.

  2. Masks and hand sanitation are required upon entering. Non-contact temperature check will be administered.

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.
