infrared sauna

 

An infrared sauna is a wooden cabin equipped with infrared heaters designed to improve the body's overall health and well-being, relieve stress, promote deep sleep and more. Infrared saunas offer similar benefits to traditional steam saunas, without the extreme heat. Proven health benefits from infrared saunas include relieving stress, relieving muscle and joint pain, improved circulation, and cleaning out skin pores.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNA?

  1. Relieve stress

  2. Helps boost exercise benefits

  3. Improve the body's overall health and wellbeing

  4. Promote deep,restorative sleep

  5. Cleanses and hydrates skin

  6. Help maintain cardiovascular health

  7. Support muscle recovery after exercise

  8. Helps decrease discomfort in inflammatory and pain conditions

WHAT IS INFRARED?

Infrared is a safe wavelength of light (or energy) which we feel as heat. Infrared heat is all around us. You can feel it from sources like fire and heated sand on the beach. The largest source of infrared heat is the Sun. It is invisible infrared wavelengths that make the sun feel warm (ultraviolet UV wavelengths are what makes it bright). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths, so does infrared light. The infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) infrared waves, each with distinct characteristics and frequency ranges. Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body as they increase the thermal energy in the body.

WHAT DO INFRARED SAUNAS WORK?

Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared heaters to warm your body directly. These heaters use ceramic or carbon panels instead of conventional heat to emit infrared waves to easily penetrate human tissue and heat your body instead of the air. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this increases thermal energy, inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. Because infrared heat waves penetrate more deeply than warmed air, you experience a more intense sweat at a lower temperature. In fact, infrared saunas usually operate between 46 to 57 degrees while traditional saunas can get up to 85 degrees or more.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INFRARED SAUNA OR STEAM SAUNA?

The main difference between infrared saunas and traditional saunas is how they use heat. Traditional steam saunas use a single heater that heats the air and that hot air heats the user. In contrast, infrared saunas use advanced infrared heaters to warm your body directly. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this increases thermal energy, inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. The infrared environment is cooler than traditional saunas, allowing you to stay in the sauna longer to enjoy the benefits.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SERVICE?

During your first service, you will fill out the consultation form. This will be roughly be 5 minutes.. The actual service can take about 30 minutes - 45 minutes., depending on which option you have selected.

PREPARATION AND AFTERCARE

Preparation

  • Don’t use a sauna immediately after you’ve had a meal. When our bodies digest food, our system rushes blood to the stomach and digestive system. In a sauna, the heat causes blood to rush o the skin. This sudden change can make some people feel very dizzy and uncomfortable, especially if they’re elderly. If you can’t get around avoiding a meal before your session, don’t worry – just limit your food intake to lighter foods. You might want to avoid meat, pastries, heavier pasta dishes, and so on. 

  • Drink plenty of water before your session to ensure you are hydrated

  • Dry body brush your skin to remove any impurities

Aftercare

  • Ensure that you stay hydrated after your infrared sauna session.

  • Relax and cool down, as you’re still going to sweat once the heat goes off, so just keep relaxing after you’ve finished your session. 

  • Take a shower to remove toxins that are now outside of your skin.

  • Apply moisturiser after a shower

For Best Results

  • Regular appointments are essential to obtain best results. We recommend 2-3 treatments at per week, as needed.

  • What is the Fibroblast/Plasma Pen treatment?
    Fibroblast/Plasma Pen treatment is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to reduce the volume of excess skin. This treatment is low risk, has minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery. Fibroblast Treatment is known for it's success with Non Surgical Eye Lifts, Tummy Tightening, Neck Tightening and so much more.
  • Why does it have two names? Is fibroblast and plasma pen the same treatment?
    This treatment has two different names in the beauty industry, however both of them are the same procedures and use the same machines. The treatment name 'fibroblast' derives from the fibroblast cells which are stimulated during this procedure. The other treatment name 'plasma pen' comes from the name of the machine which is used for this procedure.
  • What are fibroblast cells?
    Fibroblasts are active cells in the dermis. Their function is to increase the productions of fibres, collagen and glycosaminogly­cans. The number and productivity of fibroblasts decline with age. Their density gradually begins to de­crease and fibroblasts in connective tissue rarely undergo division. Small injuries from plasma stimulates fi­broblasts to produce new collagen and elevates elastin levels.
  • What does the plasma pen do?
    The Plasma pen ionises gas in the air to create a small plasma flash. When the plasma touches the skin surface, the heat widens and is transferred into the epidermis all the way to the papillary layer which contains fibroblast cells. The skin then contracts and tightens, tones and lifts. Overall, this method activates healing, and this leads to the skin remodeling and improvement in various signs of aging
  • How many sessions do I need? How long do results last?
    Results are immediate! So a single session is often all you need, as all clients see results post-treatment. However, follow up treatments can be performed after 8-12 weeks if needed. Results are expected to last 1 - 2 years. Results and the required sessions can vary each client, as it depends on the aging of the skin, its decrease in elasticity and how deep the wrinkle lines are.
  • What happens during the procedure? How long does it take?
    During the procedure, you will discuss your desired treatment area. This consultation will be roughly 10-15 minutes, as you will also need to fill in the consultation from. Numbing cream will then be applied to the area and will be left on for 40 minutes. The actual treatment on the skin can take about 30 minutes-1.5 hours, depending on the size of the area and if more than one area is being treated.
  • Does it hurt? How long do the spots last?
    It is similar to hair removal laser, where you will feel mild zaps (not as strong as hair removal though!). Numbing cream will be applied to minimise this feeling. The carbon crusts will show immediately and are expected to fall off from 3-5 days (can be up to 7). There is minimal downtime compared to other treatments/surgeries.
  • Who is an ideal client? Are there any limitations?
    - The client should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no preexisting health conditions. If the client displays signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled. - This treatment is ONLY recommended on Fitzpatrick Scales 1-3. Fibroblast Treatment is NOT advised for those with very dark skin (Fitzpartrick Scales. 4 +). This is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment. - Clients skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure. - Clients prone to keloid scars are not ideal candidates. - Clients with diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic draining issues should not undergo treatment. - Clients with a sunburn/suntan should postpone treatment. - Clients who have a history of Hyperpigmentation/Hypopigmentation are not ideal candidates. - The client must not display any tanning at the time of the treatment. - The client must not display herpes simplex (cold sores when working in the lip area) It is recommended they consult with their medical Doctor and begin taking the prescription Valtrex 3 days prior to treatment and 4 days following treatment. - If the client wears a pacemaker avoid treatment with electrical arcing. - Clients who are pregnant are not ideal candidates.
  • I am a male. Can I do this treatment?
    Yes, definitely! Fibroblasting is a versatile treatment and can treat a wide range of skin conditions and people of any age and gender. It is an ideal treatment for people who want to avoid the risks of surgery.
  • Is aftercare provided?
    Clients are provided with a detailed aftercare pamphlet and a flyer of what to expect. A free complimentary aftercare ointment is provided, which needs to be applied while the carbon crusts are on the skin. After the 7 days and the carbon crusts have fallen off, our Fibroblast Skincare hyaluronic acid gel is to applied. Clients can purchase the hyaluronic gel from us. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash or cleanser should not be used. Instead opt for a pH balanced soap (dove), and avoid rubbing the area.
  • What do I need to do prior to my treatment?
    On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. You may take an anti-histamine 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
  • What areas can be treated?
    The following areas can be treated; - Upper eye - Lower eye - Crows feet - Top lip/smokers line/periorial wrinkles - Nasolabial folds (Smile lines) - Front of ear creases - Chin crease - Jowl (Skin below chin) - Forehead lines - In between brows - Bunny lines - Accordian lines - Brow lift - Marrionette lines - Cheeks/Face lift - Neck Lift - Stomach area - Belly button area - Arms - Aging hands - Sagging knees - Acne scars - Stretch Marks - Skin lesions - Sun spots - Skin tags - Scars - Pregnancy scars - Surgery scars
  • Can you treat more than one area on the face when doing fibroblast?
    Yes, you can do multiple areas in one appointment. Each client has a new needle which can be used for various areas on their body. This needle will be disposed after use.
  • What minimal side-effects can I expect after the procedure?
    Fibroblast has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature when done by a fully certified technician. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment. Immediately after the treatment, the are may be red and midly swollen. You may experience a sensation similar to a sunburn which will last for a few hours on the day of the treatment. If this feels uncomfortable, apply an ice pack. There will be small carbon crusts (dots) in the treated area that will last 3-7 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for 2-3 days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation and to ensure the best results, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.
  • I am unsure about how my skin will react. Can I do a patch test?
    Yes, you can do a patch test at least 24 hours before the treatment.
  • Is it cheaper than surgery?
    Certainly is! For example, upper eye lift surgery can start from $3,500. Our fibroblast upper eye lift is for $400 and definitely worth it!
  • How much does the treatment cost?
    Prices vary on the treatment area. We can put together customised packages to combine multiple areas, or packages on the same area. Please see our Fibroblast Treatment page for the price list.
  • Where can I get this treatment done?
    We have a studio which is located in Roxburgh Park, Melbourne.
  • Do you have any payment plans?
    Yes. Clients can pay for treatments/packages in Zip Pay installments.
  • Do you have mobile Fibroblast/Plasma Pen treatments?
    Yes. We do provide mobile services within 30km from Roxburgh Park. A mobile service fee will apply in addition to the treatment cost.
