Our skin plays a vital role in the protection of our bodies. When broken, it is important to repair the skin quickly to prevent infection. Until recently, infrared saunas have offered little benefit in the process of wound healing.

The advanced heating technology of our full spectrum infrared saunas (by Sunlighten) has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near infrared LEDs.

Near infrared (NIR) light is the shortest infrared wavelength on the electromagnetic spectrum. As such, it penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than either mid infrared or far infrared. Not surprisingly, NIR therapy is in high demand because of its unique skin health and anti-aging benefits. But most saunas that claim to produce NIR are powered by high-wattage halogen bulbs. Those heaters produce extremely high temperatures that are neither comfortable nor beneficial.

The NIR LEDs of our saunas are the same technology used in scientific research for NASA that concluded NIR therapy greatly enhances the wound healing process. Specifically, the study stated that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing, and human tissue growth.
