Enter the doors of GLOW, and you will see beauty in every detail. Walk out, and you will feel nurtured and beautiful. A seeker of beauty in every sense of the word, Tasa Painter knows that our outer beauty reflects the inner beauty we all carry. Everything about GLOW—from the hand-painted murals that grace the walls, to the individualized care you’ll receive—reveals her passion for encouraging clients to make the most out of their own individual and natural beauty. The team at GLOW embraces that we are all aging, and over the years their treatments have shown that science and tools can help us to look and feel beautiful at any age. We provide the true GLOW experience in every moment.
I had the opportunity to speak with Tasa recently to learn more about her thriving practice and the secret of her great success helping her clients to look and feel amazing.
Thank you for speaking with us today. Tell us what is new with GLOW.
We are excited to announce after 13 years in business, GLOW has purchased our first commercial building! After 4 months of remodeling we are so pleased we have a unique, beautiful cozy space to offer our clients. We love the entire Rogue Valley as a whole and are happy to join the Medford market. Many of our long-time clients feel the same when they visit down from the coast or up from northern California. The local clientele hasn’t skipped a beat at all driving the extra 10 minutes up I-5 to be pampered. We are getting to know our neighbors and are pleased to be in the company of many talented providers.
What sets GLOW apart in your industry?
Beauty is at the heart of GLOW’s service to this community. 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 advanced estheticians at GLOW are recognized as elite experts with an innovative approach to skin care renewal. Education is a priority. Our team 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.
As technology is ever-expanding, we are motivated to continue to bring the latest science to our clientele. For example, we recently purchased our first fractional laser.
Clear + Brilliant® is a gentle fractional laser resurfacing treatment that helps rejuvenate the skin by addressing early signs of aging including fine lines, sun damage, tone, texture, and gives an overall improvement to your skin’s appearance, giving you a radiant, youthful glow. This laser uses two different wavelengths to target multiple concerns and can be used on all skin types. Little to no downtime.
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.
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 CoolSculpting, 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.
Vivace Radio Frequency Microneedling. One of our most popular treatments is the newest generation of needling with radio frequency. Non-surgical treatment for contouring and tightening the face, neck, hands and body. Vivace stimulates the natural production of collagen with no downtime and instant results. We love that this machine is a combination treatment for both skin tightening and resurfacing. It continues to win each year the new beauty award for best skin resurfacing microneedling treatment!
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.
Ultra Femme 360. Through this relatively short treatment—usually under 30 minutes—we can help rejuvenate your female intimate anatomy. Using radiofrequency, treatment delivers heat to internal and external tissues, which increases blood flow, this comfortably 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.
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.
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. We will always offer our signature heavenly facials and traditional esthetics.

What’s coming in the year ahead?
We are waiting for the shipment of our new Visia camera! Although this is not a treatment, Visia will ensure every before and after is taken in the same light and position each time and will provide us feedback of the clients results with a scientific method. In the year ahead we look forward to sharing this new larger space for our educational events and private group parties.
What would you like our readers to know, in closing?
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.
