Far infrared rays have the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate, and reflect. Infrared has a deep penetrating quality allowing for the human body to easily absorb it. Light energy is transformed into heat energy in the subcutaneous tissue, causing blood vessels and capillaries to dilate. As a result, better blood circulation is promoted and the heat helps rid the body of toxins, promoting skin purification and detoxification.
Infrared is the most effect wavelength in healing the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin. It stimulates collagen production and as a result we see fewer wrinkles and fine lines, and improved overall skin tone. A series of treatments helps the production of collagen and slows collagen breakdown for up to six months.
In addition, because Infrared causes better blood circulation it also oxygenates our skin’s cells, improving cell health. As we age our skin cells turn over slower so this benefit will leave us with a more youthful glow.
Infrared is also great for reduction of pore size, redness, and acne. Contact us or book your LaVida Facial appointment today.
