Far Infrared is here to stay, taking a strong foothold in the ever-evolving marketplace of portable at-home beauty devices is the lumiNIR by Sunlighten Saunas. Any easy and affordable way to grab a bit of bleeding-edge technology all in the name of capturing that “glow”. I personally have been testing this unit out for months and can honestly say it is effective and I see the results. Like all technology, there is a bit of a learning curve on this one. Super lightweight, packable and easy to use, I most recently traveled internationally with it. 

Why I love it?

The device offers different modes for recovery, pain, beauty, and anti-inflammation and blemish removal. Depending on the faceplate and mode you are able to control what you need when you need it. Healing times are reduced, long-term pain is managed if you are an athlete and for those of you living that instagramable moment, the lumiNIR will keep you glowing. 

Sounds great, but how does it work? The various cell and tissue types beneath your skin’s surface are every bit as unique as you are. Each one absorbs light at a different wavelength. The lumiNIR 4-in-1 Light System offers four attachments to deliver low-level light therapy to a targeted area for best results. 

LED (Light Emitting Diode) therapy is not new. In fact, it has been around for a very long time. LED light has long been used to assist with plant growth in greenhouses because of its ability to rejuvenate cells. Once doctors, scientists, and researchers were able to test out LED light therapy with people, the results were unanimous. LED light has numerous health benefits, including skin rejuvenation, cellular turnover, tissue repair, and pain relief. 

And now the good stuff:

Infrared energy is part of the sun’s invisible light spectrum and is necessary for all living things to grow and flourish. Near-infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength and penetrates as much as 6 mm beyond the surface of the skin. 

Sunlighten has harnessed the specific spectrum of light needed to trigger a natural, photo-biochemical reaction. This recharges the cell’s mitochondria and stimulates cellular turnover. The lumiNIR LED attachment emits 880 nm for the deepest tissue penetration. 

155% increase in cell and tissue growth 

36% decrease in wound size 

50% reduction in cell death 

Because our bodies are biological machines, keep in mind your lifestyle and current beauty habits will affect the way the technology is effective for you. How you recover and respond to the wavelengths would be very different than say the person next to you. The more you know, the more you glow. This is definitely worth a closer look.
