Hi
you can use Yafa Render pass ( emit one) and the glare node in post-compositing to enhance the glow effect, that's what I do in this case ;)

Does that work better than "Meshlights"???

Thanks,

Glow is not a realistic effect you can fit into a mathematical model, it is all done in post pro. The usual way to do it is by blurring a pass of the emiting object as Rio explains.
