Infrared Therapy Q & A

How does infrared therapy work?

The unique sauna works by using infrared wavelengths of light to heat the body at its core. Using a specialized wavelength, the heat vibrates water molecules in the body to a point that they break down. You experience a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins lie.

If you desire improved skin and a reduction of inflammation, you may benefit from infrared therapy. All types of skin and adults of all ages benefit.

Is the heat of the infrared sauna really intense?

The infrared sauna brings about results at a lower temperature as compared to a traditional sauna, making it more tolerable for clients who don’t like high heat.

What are the benefits of infrared therapy?

Infrared therapy brings about a number of extraordinary aesthetic benefits. These include:

  • Detoxification
  • Weight loss
  • Clearer, tighter skin
  • Improved circulation
  • Faster healing of injuries

When you’re exposed to the light, your cells are prompted to produce additional collagen and elastin. These compounds improve your skin’s strength and youthful look. The infrared light promotes nutrient exchange, oxygen delivery, and greater blood flow in inflamed and painful areas, too.

How long does each infrared therapy session last?

Infrared therapy sessions last 30-45 minutes. Dr. Monfared develops a customized plan for your goals and needs. You benefit from a series of 12 sessions, scheduled two to three times per week over the course of three to four weeks.

Does infrared therapy require downtime?

No downtime is required after infrared sauna therapy. You can go right back to your daily activities, including work and exercise, if desired. The light therapy has no side effects. It doesn’t heat the surface of the skin, so there’s no risk of burning. Sauna therapy is pain-free and noninvasive.

How soon will I see results from infrared therapy?

You notice improvements in skin health and feel fresher after just one treatment. Optimal results are achieved when you follow through on a recommended full course of 12 treatments.
