Infrared Saunas And Keloids

Scarring is the skin’s natural response to injury and is part of the healing process. But, when this scarred tissue becomes excessive, it can create smooth, large, hard growths known as keloids. Although keloids do not negatively impact your health in any way, they can cause discomfort and self-consciousness in some individuals. Thankfully, the regular use of an infrared sauna may help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Keloids

With a Good Health Saunas' infrared sauna, your body heals faster from tissue injuries by opening up the capillaries and delivering more nutrients to the surface of the skin. Not only does blood circulation improve with regular infrared sauna use, but unwanted toxins are also being extracted from the body. Double win, right? More oxygen is also reaching the tissues, joints, and especially the skin, improving skin tone and texture while reducing inflammation in the process. Inflammation can worsen the appearance of keloids, so reducing inflammation can be a great help in improving the appearance of your skin. All of these benefits combined can create some noticeable improvements in your skin tone.

The more you use an infrared sauna, the softer and supple your skin may become. After all, your skin is getting rid of all those toxins through sweat, and your capillaries are supplying all those nutrients your skin has been missing over the years. Baby-soft skin isn't guaranteed, but babies are a great example of how soft skin can be when blood circulation is working at its peak. By making the skin more pliable, the stiff, bumpy appearance of keloids is reduced, allowing the skin tissue to blend in more with the surrounding skin tissue. Good Health Saunas has infrared saunas that utilize some of the best skin-improving infrared heating elements found in a commercially available infrared saunas.


Tips for the Best Sauna Experience

1. Stretch before entering the sauna.

Stretching wakes up your body, gets your blood pumping, and increases your flexibility, and these preparations will ensure that your mind, body, and health will see the greatest results after your infrared sauna session.

2. Hydrate your body.

They say you should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, and they’re not wrong! Keeping your body hydrated guarantees that you’ll have the stamina to enjoy an entire session of healthy heat in an infrared sauna.

3. Find the right settings.

Not everyone has the same body, so not everyone should have the same settings when it comes to their infrared sauna experience. If you’re looking to truly relax, then you may want to adjust the chromotherapy lighting to our cool blue, turn the heat to a lower temperature, and play some calming tunes. But, if you’re someone who wants to use the infrared sauna to feel energized, then perhaps a radiant orange, higher temperature, and an inspiring music selection is the way to go.

4. Take advantage of the bench.

Our infrared saunas come equipped with a comfortable bench that’s stationed at just the right height, so use it! The bench gives you somewhere to put your feet up to relax, sit calmly if you want to meditate, or provides an area for you to do that stretching we talked about earlier.
