At Vita Day Spa our Sunlighten Infrared Sauna has advanced Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heating technology and the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near infrared LEDs. No other sauna can do this. Skin plays a vital role in the protection of our bodies from the external environment. When broken, it is important repair it quickly to prevent infection or further problems. Saunas have not been able to provide the benefit of wound healing…until now. Sunlighten’s Solocarbon Custom Spectrum is the only heater on the market capable of producing near infrared (NIR) light using LED technology. This is the same technology used in scientific research that concluded NIR therapy greatly enhances the wound healing process. Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.4
