Kirkland

Glow Medispa - Kirkland was founded by Dr. Des Otto in November 2019. That's right! Barely open for a few months, we were then shut down for the next 3. But with a growing practice, our spa flourished despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. We love serving Kirkland and the greater Eastside, providing safe, effective treatments with minimal downtime and natural results. Our Kirkland location conveniently serves the greater Eastside including Bellevue, Renton, Issaquah, Woodinville, and Mill Creek.
