Skin & Complexion Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Aging is caused by a variety of things including genetics, lifestyle, and toxic buildup both biological and environmental. Outside of lifestyle, the primary cause for aging skin is the reduction of Collagen and Elastin proteins produced by the body. As our skin ages, it loses its soft, supple, and elastic properties.
Now, We all know that beating time is a losing fight but we certainly try. We have many options to reduce the signs of aging, potions, lotions, crèmes. Expensive cosmetic treatments and sometimes surgery that may have limited effects or questionable long-term safety. Here at Celebration Saunas, we have joined the anti-aging fight and we love our all-natural method to not only reduce the signs of aging in our skin but throughout our body.
It’s easy to rejuvenate your skin naturally and improve overall health in the process. Although far infrared light benefits the skin, the near-infrared light provides the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Our highest exposure to near-infrared light naturally is at dawn and at dusk.
How does far infrared affect so many skin disorders?
The skin is the largest organ in the body protecting everything inside the body. When we breathe, ingest, drink, or absorb environmental toxins the body processes these toxins through the liver and kidneys to then expel as waste. Some environmental toxins are so toxic your liver and kidneys don’t want anything to do with them. The body must do something with deadly toxins to maintain the health of our organs, so it stores these toxins in the subcutaneous layer of skin. When the body absorbs far-infrared light it uses this energy. The increase in thermal energy causes your pulse rate to safely increase and then breathe faster encouraging increased oxygenation for introduction into the circulatory system in the body’s attempt to cool itself, it begins to sweat. It makes sense when we clean our bodies from the inside out, skin conditions improve, purging waste, dirt, bacteria, and toxins eliminating disease at the source. All topics and conclusions of the health benefits of infrared saunas have been thoroughly researched by Celebration Saunas but results can vary.

Wound Healing: When a far infrared is applied to wounds our bodies increase the nitric oxide concentration to the affected area which correlate with vasodilatory and anabolic responses improving healing in skin ulcers, lacerations and bed sores. The enhanced delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s soft tissue promotes regeneration and accelerated healing.
