Beauty is at the heart of GLOW’s service to this community as they celebrate ten years in business. From the pleasing details of the interior design to the expert attention to clients’ specific needs, GLOW continues to support beauty from the inside out. The team at GLOW embraces that we are all aging, and over the years their treatments have shown that science can help us to look and feel beautiful at any age. Especially in the past five years since GLOW has developed its medical aesthetics partnership with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Margo Herron, patrons have benefitted from the best practices available in the market, as well as the personalized attention that is the signature of the GLOW brand.
The aestheticians at GLOW are recognized as elite experts with an innovative approach to skin care renewal. Their team, led by creator Tasa Painter, will guide you based upon your individual needs to enhance your radiance and beauty. Here you will relax into a private and intimate setting where you can escape and rejuvenate, while still experiencing transformational results.
Thanks for talking with us again, Tasa. Remind us of your business services.
GLOW, Ashland’s premier medical spa, is a special place where you can invest in yourself. We offer services that include traditional aesthetics, such as facials and peels, as well as our noninvasive medical treatments, such as skin tightening around the neck and face, and laser to reduce brown spots, scars, and spider veins. Our continued commitment to education and training, as well as our personal passion for serving people, means personalized attention to each client’s needs. We find our connection to our clients immensely rewarding and inspiring. Our team puts emphasis on continuing to grow with improved offerings as each year passes. Our clients will tell you that the individualized attention we offer helps them feel appreciated and beautiful.
Because professionalism and client safety are key components of our business model, our medical aesthetic skin treatments are in partnership with and under the supervision of Dr. Margo Herron. We strive always to be the best in the business, from the appealing design details inside our spa to the amazing treatment results to our continuous learning about the state of the art. Given our success at attracting clients, many of whom return for more, we are a premier med-spa!
All three of us on the team—Tasa Painter, Jody Sage, and Danielle Laclare—are certified medical aestheticians with years of experience. Facials are still an important offering; we also love to provide traditional aesthetics. Our $25 individualized consultation fee goes toward any service you choose and can provide you with an array of possible treatments suited for your needs and budget.
I hear that you are launching a new treatment at Glow. Tell us about it!
Yes! We are so excited to be introducing the BTL Ultra Femme 360 for enhancing women’s intimate health through vaginal rejuvenation. So many women undergo intimacy-related challenges as they age or after childbirth, such as vaginal dryness, laxity, and cases of stress urinary incontinence. These are things we don’t often talk about. This non-surgical option brings a whole new approach to women’s health… and we at GLOW are talking about things that are uncomfortable, yet normal for so many women. By bringing these issues to the forefront and making it easier to talk about, we can help improve the intimate lives of our clients in this community.
Through this relatively short treatment—usually under 30 minutes—we can help rejuvenate your female intimate anatomy. Using radiofrequency, this comfortable treatment delivers heat to internal and external tissues, which increases blood flow, tightens the vagina, and remodels external female genitalia. Ultra Femme 360 improves stress urinary incontinence and sexual function because it can thicken mucosal tissue thereby improving natural lubrication. Research also has found increased sensitivity during intercourse.
The treatment is typically without discomfort because we use a disposable 360 degree wand that spreads a gentle amount of homogeneous heat inside the vaginal canal. Like our other Exilis radiofrequency machines, the technique stimulates the production of collagen and elasticity, which provides the tightening response over time. Many women report improvements after the first treatment. We will tailor treatments to your specific issues once we have had our initial consultation.
In getting ready to launch this, we’ve discovered more women have these issues than you would ever know. We tested three devices before picking the Ultra Femme 360. It uses the body’s natural process to restore the vaginal area to a more youthful state. According to initial results, 80% of people experience a significant improvement.
Most important, women feel better about themselves and feel like they have more control over their bodies.
Remind us of the other kinds of treatments you offer at Glow.
As technology is ever expanding, we are motivated to continue to bring the latest science to our clientele.
For skin tightening, we use Exilis Ultra to combine ultrasound with radiofrequency, yielding excellent results. Ultra can be used anywhere on the face and body, including around the eyes, jaw line, jowls, mouth, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, thighs, hips, and love handles. It is redefining nonsurgical alternatives. Exilis is not a laser; there is no skin peeling, pigment change, or prolonged healing, and little to no downtime. Optimal results after four to six sessions give immediate and progressive outcomes. We suggest maintenance treatments to provide long-term benefits. Our clients continue to be impressed with their appearance and many have added additional areas of treatment, attesting to their high satisfaction.
To help with body sculpting, we offer Vanquish ME, another type of radiofrequency targeted for the body. While a lot of people have heard about Cool Sculpting, our research led us to Vanquish ME, which utilizes heat instead of freezing or cold, and thus is a more pleasant experience for body shaping and fat reduction. Patients love this treatment as there is no downtime and it’s virtually painless. Even better, Vanquish can handle a larger variety of body types and treats multiple areas at once. After four to six treatments, patients often see a difference in pants size. One of the best features that drew us is that it combines skin tightening with fat melting for advanced results. To this we also add Celutone to expedite the break-up of fat cells.
We still continue to offer Sciton Broadband Light (BBL) laser treatment with remarkable results. This treatment is fast becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for people of all ages and genders. A wide variety of conditions can be treated with BBL therapy, including redness and age spots, rosacea, blood vessels, unwanted hair and uneven skin tone, providing our clientele with clear, radiant skin.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses the skin’s natural ability to repair after creating micro wounds to stimulate a healing collagen response. Microneedling minimizes pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, and is a promising treatment for lip lines. This procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner with a single-use sterile needle head. To this service, we have added our LED light therapy to promote faster healing time and a more all-inclusive treatment.
Medical-grade peels are for those who want to try another progressive option to achieve results. While there is a process of shedding skin involved, peels can refine texture and tone by producing new healthy skin layers to come to the surface. Peels are offered at many different levels and we individualize the treatment based on your skin. For example, a deep-sea peel uses no acids; instead it utilizes sea-based herbs to stimulate collagen changes at a deeper level. As we age the process of turning over cells slows way down, so performing peels can be like a workout for the skin. A series is often recommended to move you forward in results. I have always been a fan of peels. I do them regularly on myself.
For those who feel timid about these bigger procedures, we continue to offer these cell-nourishing treatments: microcurrent, LED light therapy, and oxygen.
Microcurrent stimulates ATP, which is the vital nutrient to healthy, functioning cells. Even after one treatment, microcurrent lifts and tones the muscles of the face. LED light therapy increases the health of your skin by restoring collagen, minimizing fine lines, and reducing redness and pore size.
Oxygen deeply hydrates and revitalizes, because it infuses vitamins and antioxidants into the skin during the treatment. These are all non-invasive, extremely healing techniques.
With the technologies that we offer, we can’t correct everything, so bringing in Dr. Herron for Combination Packages with her specialties gives more of a full-spectrum answer to natural-looking results. For example, we are combining injections, administered by Dr. Herron, with Exilis skin tightening to maximize the results. Dr. Herron is extremely gentle and makes sure her clients are comfortable, well-informed, and satisfied.
Tell us about your upcoming event.
On Thursday, February 13th at 6:00 pm, we will be hosting a fun and informative event to get the word out about our new line of treatments with the BTL Ultra Femme 360. This event is free, because we want people to feel comfortable talking about these issues and to realize that help is available. Dr. Margo Herron will be joining us in the Ashland Hills Inn—Stardust Lounge. We will serve hors d’oeuvres and wine.
Please RSVP by Feb. 11 with our office at 541-488-5555 so we know how many to expect. Seating is limited.
What do your clients say?
We regularly get great reviews. Here’s what some clients say:
“EVERY SINGLE THING was clearly explained in easy to understand terms. Service could not have been better.” J.L., Ashland
“The staff at GLOW are amazing…all knowledgeable and skilled. I have struggled with adult acne for 10 years and within months of going to GLOW I was no longer breaking out as frequently or as badly. I got married last June and my skin looked so beautiful, which is not something I thought I would ever say about my skin…the products they recommended to me have been wonderful…I can’t thank them enough!” S.M., Ashland.
“I can’t say enough about GLOW. The staff is efficient, talented and attentive, and so welcoming.” L.G., Ashland
In closing, what would you like out readers to know?
How we feel on the inside affects the GLOW that we reveal to the outside world. We strive to open up conversations about graceful aging, beauty, and healthy intimate awareness so these conversations become more mainstream, less taboo. Beauty starts with you. A smile on your face, good sleep, eating healthy foods, exercise, and staying well-hydrated all contribute to radiant skin. We recommend daily use of hot towels to keep your face fresh and pores clean. Coconut oil is a wonderful, nourishing, and inexpensive way to hydrate the body. Sunscreen is an essential element in everyday care too, even in the winter months!
Glowing skin is healthy skin. Call us for a consultation. See, feel, and experience the difference!
