What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for Sunlighten sauna therapy. Sunlighten's Solocarbon Infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.
How Safe is Infrared?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occuring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight; in fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
This session starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.

Infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance, and the skin on your entire body – from face to feet – will benefit from a sauna therapy session.
The near-infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
In this session, a low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near IR LEDs improve overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits.
