The team of specialized aestheticians at DermaClinic Coral Gables wants to change the way people think about healthy bodies and their skin as not just something for the lucky few.
That’s why for certain cosmetic services we utilize Sunlighten™ Sauna technology, an effective, all-natural tool for dermal layer rejuvenation and cell healing and damage prevention.
What is Sunlighten?
Unlike ultraviolet light, which has damaging effects upon the tissues and cells of the body, infrared light–invisible to the eyes and commonly felt as heat–helps cells regenerate or repair themselves. Infrared light also improves the circulation of oxygen-rich blood in the body, promoting faster healing of deep tissues and relieving pain.
One of the characteristics of infrared light is its ability to penetrate deep below the skin layers, providing a much greater depth which can effectively provide pain relief. In fact, this invasive, natural, and painless method can provide a vast range of health benefits, without damaging the skin through UV radiation.
Infrared light is the heat people feel when exposed to the sun. The skin naturally radiates infrared heat every day. From pain relief to reducing inflammation to anti-aging qualities infrared light exposure has shown immense health benefits, making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” home therapies for overall healthier living.
If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals:
Detoxify: Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to rid itself of toxins and pollutants. Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins actually reside. A detox session from a Sunlighten™ sauna is 7 to 10 times more effective than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve Pain: Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low-level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain.
Lose Weight: A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and detoxification.
Lower Blood Pressure: Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Improve Circulation: Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain, and expedite the healing process.
Purify Skin: Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of a Sunlighten sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, and firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly faster.
