Infrared tanning may initially sound daunting; however, it is easy to understand, and the benefits are excellent! You first need to know that infrared tanning beds completely differ from regular tanning beds. Now that you know that, let’s talk about what infrared tanning is and the benefits! 

What is Infrared Tanning? 
Infrared tanning is a red light therapy that exposes you to light waves between 650nm-850nm (nm stands for nanometers, which is how wavelengths are measured). These light waves do not produce heat, and you feel nothing during the 20-minute treatment. Please note that infrared tanning does not expose you to UVA/Ub/v rays nor darken your skin. Red light therapy optimizes mitochondrial metabolism, increases ATP production, and improves blood circulation, immune systems, and healing properties. So what are the benefits of infrared tanning?

Four Benefits of Infrared Tanning

Skin becomes weaker as we age, resulting in wrinkles, lines, and saggy skin. Getting older results in a reduction of collagen levels which leads to weaker and looser skin. Infrared studies have shown that this therapy can increase collagen production.

Acne and Scarring
Infrared therapy has shown to be effective against acne and scarring because the red light particles have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Muscle Recovery
Red light can delay muscle fatigue and exhaustion by lowering lactic acid levels. Lactic acid is produced in muscle cells and increases during exercise.

Psoriasis is a common skin disease characterized by rashes on the knees, elbows, or scalp. There is currently no cure; however, infrared therapy has been shown to heal psoriasis patches quickly and easily.

Infrared tanning therapy, or red light therapy, is a newer yet effective method for many skin ailments and muscle fatigue. Interested in better-looking skin and painless light therapy? Find your local red light therapy provider today!
