If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love spa treatments. I am pretty much open to trying anything once. Glo Sun Spa in Market Street The Woodlands asked me to collaborate with them and I thought Yeah! I love a great spray tan, why not. I know a few people who have their own spray tans their own spray times at home, and I’ve heard of people using something similar to these Afterpay DIY spray tan machines. I have never used them but I wanted get a tan myself. I decided to take a look at their site and saw that Glo offered so much more than just spray tans.
When I arrived at Glo, the staff was very welcoming and informative on all the treatments I would be receiving. They took me back to one of the treatment rooms and gave me a plush robe to change into.
The first treatment I tried was called the Lumiere Excel red light therapy.
I was given a pair of tanning goggles to protect my eyes. Then, I layed down in a zero gravity chair and spent twenty minutes in total relaxation. The lumiere is a red light therapy machine. Red light therapy can be used to treat a growing list of skin conditions including:
- cold sores and herpes
- everyday cuts, scrapes burns & bruises
I had a bad bout of hormonal acne on my chin last week. After using a lot of acne medicine to spot treat, I was left with three bad, red scar marks on my chin. I will admit that I was skeptical, but after one therapy and two days later, the scaring is almost non-existent! There is zero pain and zero down time with this treatment.
Next, I tried out the hydration station. This is an advanced capsule that provides a combination of topical radiant heat and steam, LED color technology, in a vibratory bed. The combination leaves your summer skin looking soft and supple. I knew I would be getting a spray tan before I left and wanted it to last as long as possible. Moisturized skin tans more evenly and deeper than dry, scaly skin.
During the treatment you lay inside the pod with your head sticking out. The bed starts to vibrate and steam. Again, this is totally painless and has zero down time. Here are some of the results you can expect when using the Hydration Station at Glo:
• Completely detoxifies the skin
• Burns 300-500 calories per session
• Darker UV tanning results
• Even, odor-free, sunless results that last days longer
• Deep and even skin care product penetration
• Advanced absorption of nutrients & active ingredients
• Improved appearance of skin tonality
