Solocarbon infrared heat therapy

Our Wellness Program at Hair Studios Plus here in Duncan, SC includes the best and #1 Doctor recommended Broad Spectrum Solocarbon Infrared Sauna available in the Market.  

Infrared Sauna Therapy works by using Mid, Far and Near  Infrared elements to  penetrate tissues and joints, and generate the most heat from inside the body rather than air.  The far infrared elements have been clinically shown to increase core body temperature up to 3° C (~5.4°F), which is best for increasing sweat and detoxification.  Mid and far infrared spectra are optimized for the best absorption for relaxation and health benefits.  

Because Infrared Sauna Therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperatre and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside.  In addition, far infrared saunas aid in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one session!

Our Infrared Sauna by Sunlighten, is the only Infared Sauna Heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature nearly 3 degrees.  What does this mean for your health?  You will experience the most detoxifying sweat, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure and aid in weight loss through waistline reduction

Near Infrared

Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than the other two. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewalcell healthwound healing, and tissue growth.

NIR heaters consisting of high-wattage halogen bulbs at extremely high temperatures are not comfortable or beneficial. In order to make NIR heat safe for saunas, we used NASA research to develop a patented LED array that provides NIR at a singular wavelength with minimal variability and virtually undetectable heat and light.

LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction (similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue). Research from Dr. Harry Whelan, it takes a specific joule of NIR energy to deliver the wavelength needed to penetrate human tissue.

Mid Infrared

Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process. View 3-in-1 study on pain relief.

To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 250⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the polypropylene material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR. We worked with engineers and scientists to overcome this obstacle by using a higher quality product – DuPont’s Kapton® polyimide film—a high tech material made to tolerate the high heat required to produce MIR. Plus, since our full spectrum heaters are made up of three distinct heating elements, the MIR layer can be heated independently to a higher temperature than the FIR layer.


Far Infrared

The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized. Plus, since sweating increases heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, you’re also burning calories.

We already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating . We’ve applied that same coating to our polyimide panel and discovered this application makes it 99% emissive! This is why Solocarbon panels are the only far infrared heaters clinically shown to raise core body temperature nearly 3° for the most detoxifying sweat, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure and aid in weight loss.

The Safest and Most Effective Saunas on the Market with Ultra Low EMF Technology

Not only are our Solocarbon heaters the most effective infrared heater on the market, the are also the safest. Our proprietary heater design produces virtually NO EMF. Our exclusive manufacturing process allows us to cancel out EMF to levels that are virtually undetectable.

Our heaters have gone through comprehensive third-party testing to ensure safe levels of EMF. Electro Magnetic Fields are measured in milligauss (mG). Since there are no EMF safety standards set in the U.S., we have used the Swedish safety standard of 3 mG as the benchmark. When EMF levels are measured inside Sunlighten saunas around your seated position, EMF levels are virtually undetectable.

Please see the testing below performed by EMF testing lab VitaTech Electromagnetics. These EMF reading are measured directly on the heater (Diagram 1.0). Where you are seated in the sauna, the levels are virtually zero.

The EMF levels of Sunlighten heater panels were considered by VitaTech to be excellent with the component magnetic field levels measuring at 0.05mG or less on all axis.

The Truth About EMF & Infrared Saunas
Sunlighten saunas are safe – and always have been.

There has been a lot of buzz recently about EMF levels and infrared saunas. Despite extensive research over the past 20 years, two national research organizations (the National Research Council and the National Institute of Health) have looked at the studies and have concluded that there is not strong evidence supporting EMF exposures pose a health risk. Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF.

Only Sunlighten infrared heaters have been tested by independent engineers who concluded that our proprietary heating technologies meet the most rigorous standards for safety, emissivity and power for infrared heater applications. This is one of the reasons why Sunlighten remains the #1 sauna brand recommended by health experts!.


What is truly important when buying an infrared sauna – Safety and Effectiveness

When purchasing a sauna, your top two priorities should be safety and effectiveness. Solocarbon® heating technology is the foundation for all of our sauna products. It is the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss.

Solocarbon® panels contain a unique proprietary blend of materials that are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten™. This means – unlike other saunas on the market – we can ensure the safety & effectiveness of each individual heater. Not only have our saunas been electrically certified to meet safety and performance standards, they have also been environmentally tested and approved for no off-gassing. Visit our website to view our safety certifications.

If you are purchasing a sauna for health benefits, the single most important element to consider is heater emissivity which determines how efficient infrared heat is conducted and emitted. If a sauna is not efficient at emitting infrared, you are not receiving the benefits! Generic carbon blend heaters are less than 85% effective. Solocarbon® heaters are 95-99% efficient at emitting infrared. When researching infrared saunas, always ask for emissivity data on the specific heater you are considering. This determines the quality and effectiveness of infrared heat.


Sunlighten contracted the services of Bruker Analytical Services to verify the emissivity of several heater materials. Emissivity is the ability of a material to absorb and release energy in the form of infrared heat. To best measure emissivity, we measured the reflection of energy off of a heater and subtracted that from 1 to calculate the emissivity.

Sauna & Contraindications

Like all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Drinking an electrolyte-replacing water or a sports drink is strongly recommended before and after use.

Important Safeguards

  • Never sleep inside the sauna while it is on

Medical Conditions
If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

  • Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
  • Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
  • Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.
  • Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
  • Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
  • Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
  • Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
  • Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
  • Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
  • Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
  • Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
  • Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.
  • Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.

In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
