Unsightly varicose and spider veins need not be a death sentence for your social life. They are easily treatable with sclerotherapy, a non-invasive procedure performed right here at Total Glow in Palo Alto. Sclerotherapy can help reverse thick, swollen-looking veins so you can start showing off your legs again without self-consciousness.
During sclerotherapy, a potent solution of polidocanol, hypertonic saline and sodium tetradecyl sulfate is injected into unwanted veins to shrink them and make them less noticeable. Blue, purple and red veins that stick out prominently on the arms, legs or feet can finally be removed for good with this powerful treatment modality.
These are small purple, blue or red blood vessels that resemble the lines in a spider’s web. They are often visible on the face and the legs.
Varicose veins are large, raised veins in the legs. Their name comes from the Latin root “varix” for “twisted”. They are often caused by poor genes, as well as long periods of standing on one’s feet.
At Total Glow, no two clients receive the same generic treatment. Rather, each cosmetic procedure is created and formulated with your unique skin tone, type and texture in mind. We combine the ancient principles of Ayurvedic healing with modern, cutting edge technology to offer you the next level in luxurious medical spa solutions to every day skincare problems. Our aestheticians as well as our board certified plastic surgeon are all dedicated to providing you with outstanding results, catering to not just the body, but the mind and spirit as well.
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.Read More
