Located in the heart of the West Seattle Junction, Glow Medispa is part of our diverse community. We have been a member of the West Seattle Junction Association and the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce since we opened our doors in 2014.

We are one doctor, 2 nurse practitioners, one physician's assistant, three master aestheticians, one manager and 2 front desk office staff. We all have ties  to West Seattle, though two of us have moved out of WS as our lives and families have grown. But most of us live just a few minutes away.
