Red Light FAQ's

You!

Red Light Therapy is great for anyone that wants to improve the appearance of their skin. It is great for:

  • Increasing the production of collagen and elastin in the skin
  • Diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size
  • Reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, age spots, and blemishes
  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Helps with tissue repair, wound healing, and recovery
  • Google for more information and research online

We’re more effective because we’re medical-grade and FDA-approved.
Ours are the most effective out there, given that they’re medical-grade equipment.

For wound healing, light therapy is thought to promote the skin cells’ biological responses to increase the number of fibroblasts, increasing collagen proliferation into the skin, thereby reducing the required time for wound closure, while increasing the strength of the regenerated tissue.

Red Light Therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort. This treatment helps counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne, and acne scarring. POLY provides noticeable results, without the high cost and downtime of other more expensive treatment options.

As we age, the skin undergoes changes that are caused by numerous factors. As aging progresses, the skin can lose 20%-80% of its thickness due to changes in the function of special skin cells called fibroblasts, which are responsible for the production of collagen and elastin. The result is thinning, wrinkling, and changes in skin texture. Damage from the sun’s UV rays can further reduce the elasticity of the skin as it degrades the structural collagen and elastin matrix.

Best results are achieved when POLY is used for 20 minutes, 2-3 times per week, for 8 weeks. Allow 24 hours between treatments.

Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons were among the first practices to utilize POLY in conjunction with their services. When POLY received FDA 510K OTC Clearance; Salons, Day Spas, Med Spas, Health Clubs, and Wellness Centers joined in offering POLY Pro Systems to their menu of Spa & Wellness services.

Light waves and light energy, including those found in natural sunlight, are measured in nanometers. A nanometer is a unit of length equal to one-billionth of a meter.

  • Blue-Light, which is used to treat acne and blemishes, occurs between 400-500 nanometers.
  • Red-Light, which is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, etc., occurs between 600-700 nanometers.
  • Infrared, which is used for general wellness and pain management, occurs just beyond 700 nanometers.

POLY Systems harness the health & wellness properties of each of these naturally occurring wavelengths and deliver light energy within a specific nanometer range – thus providing maximum power and effective results.

Infrared radiation has longer waves than red light, and thus oscillates at a lower frequency and carries less energy. UV radiation has shorter waves than blue or violet light, and thus oscillates more rapidly and carries more energy per photon than visible light does.

Red Light Therapy is safe, gentle & effective for all skin and body types. It is drug, laser, and chemical free. It is non-invasive, gentle, and relaxing and requires no downtime or recovery time.

  • Pregnant women (must consult with doctor)
  • People with Migraines
    Epilepsy or Photosensitivity
  • Suspicious Legions on body
  • Photosensitizing Medications – antibiotics, NSAIDS, diuretics, retinoids, statins, photodynamic therapy drugs, neuroleptic drugs, antifungals, or prophoto sensitizers.

Red light therapy uses LED lights to emit a low-wavelength LED red light. This is outside of the UV wavelength range and doesn’t stimulate melanin production.

POLY systems can be used by all skin types and body types. There are no age restrictions, however, Tommy’s Tanning requires parental consent for customers under the age of 18 years.

Eye protection is not mandatory when using Red Light Therapy, however, it is recommended if you have a sensitivity to light.

HaloIR – Infrared Sauna with Halotherapy

The HaloIR sauna is the first to offer a synergistic combination of Infrared Saunas and Halotherapy. In a far infrared sauna, about 20% of the heat goes to heating the air and the other 80% heats your body. This radiant heat penetrates the skin more deeply than traditional saunas. Our HaloIR sauna provides you with detoxification and muscle pain relief. Halotherapy (salt therapy) delivers antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties which can improve your immune system and respiratory system. The release of negative ions purifies the air to facilitate stress relief and general wellness. 

The combined effects of these therapies engage all five senses for a truly relaxing and transformative experience.

Sit back and relax as you:

  • SMELL the essential oil aromatherapy
  • TASTE the salty air
  • FEEL the warmth of the infrared heat as it envelops your body
  • SEE the changing lights of the medical grade chromatherapy light waves

Halotherapy FAQ's

Halotherapy uses negatively charged ions to purify the circulating air and is an excellent way to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the whole body for preventative and restorative health benefits.

Micro-sized salt particles are dispersed into the cabin through a unique process generated by a halogenerator. These salt particles, while creating an antibacterial environment, draw out the excess moisture, the mucus and impurities that are in the airways and on the skin. The salt widens the airways and loosens any mucus reducing inflammation, which makes more room in the airways for you to breathe. The non-inhaled particles landing on the skin help to balance pH and induce reparative and regenerative processes in the skin, stimulating cell growth and microcirculation. The result is an improvement in your overall mental and emotional health, helping you to relax and de-stress.

Dry Salt therapy is like a toothbrush for your lungs and skin, EVERYONE can benefit. It is a detox for many conditions including lung conditions, such as allergies, asthma, bronchial infections, sinusitis and even snoring as well as common skin conditions such as acne, dry and flaky skin, psoriasis and eczema.

When you sweat, you increase circulation, which results in glowing skin, pain relief, weight loss, stress relief, increased athletic performance, improved immune function, injury recovery and more. There are many benefits to sweating!

We recommend leaving your phone, watch and any other electronic device out of the sauna, as the temperature of the sauna can overheat your device.

Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life.

Infrared Saunas offer a wide range of Health Benefits, however, there are some guests who are required to consult with their physician prior to use or are recommended to avoid infrared saunas altogether.

Do not use if pregnant, have serious inflammation, a condition that inhibits your ability to sweat, a pacemaker or defibrillator, a fever, a communicable disease, acute bleeding or if you are intoxicated.

There are typically no side effects to Halotherapy, other than potential thirst. However, if someone is on any medications or suffers from any serious medical issue, please seek medical advice before any therapy.

Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are cumulative, so consistency and frequency are the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy has been used on a daily basis without any side effects. 

Yes, when the air is dry and warm, it will allow for deeper penetration and better absorbency of the salt particles in the bronchi. Halotherapy at low levels of heat enhances the experience and efficacy of Halotherapy.

Less is more (even nothing at all if you please!). Typically, a bathing suit or underwear are ideal for use in our infrared saunas (just be sure it’s free of plastic or metal fasteners or eyelets). We will provide towels and a bathrobe.

The more water that’s in your body, the more productive your session will be. We recommend good hydration as well as a light meal prior to your session (but nothing heavy or directly before your session).

Yes. Halotherapy is a completely drug-free treatment, safe for of all ages. Depending on the age and treatment goals, session times and concentration levels may be adjusted. Please consult your physician with any concerns.

The essential oil used in the HaloIR is RC. The initials stand for respiratory care, as this oil may provide a refreshing breathing experience.

R.C. essential oil blend contains three varieties of Eucalyptus, to help create a refreshing and invigorating breathing experience and Peppermint essential oil, which provides the soothing and cooling effect of menthol.

The environment in a cave/room needs to be kept cool to reduce the humidity levels. The reason for this has to do with the amount of “moisture “in the air and not the temperature of the air. If the humidity is too high in an environment, the microscopic salt particles will attach to the moisture and become ineffective. Infrared is “dry” heat, moisture is not an issue.

What is Infrared?

Sweating is the body’s natural way of eliminating toxins.  While traditional saunas rely on humidity to heat up the room around you, infrared saunas heat your body directly by emitting near-infrared light, mid-infrared light, and far-infrared light wavelengths that you immediately absorb.  Localized heat sent right to the source means tolerable temperatures, a quicker, deeper sweat, and several health benefits.

Infrareds healing rays are felt on our skin as warmth, and are absorbed by our bodies to help detoxify, relax, improve circulation, recover faster, sleep better, age well and help us feel good.

Benefits of Infrared Light:

  • Detoxification
  • Relaxation
  • Better sleep
  • Weight loss
  • Relief from sore muscles
  • Relief from joint pain such as arthritis
  • Pain relief
  • Clear and tighter skin
  • Improved circulation
  • Help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome 
  • Improved appearance of cellulite 
  • Skin purification

Infrared Light

 Infrared is a light wave next to red light on the electromagnetic spectrum that is invisible to the human eye but felt as heat.  It has a range of wavelengths in its own category. 

There are 3 types based on wave size, frequency, and the amount of energy they carry: 

  • Mid infrared is a longer wavelength that can penetrate a little deeper into the body’s soft tissue targeting inflammation and speeding up the healing process. It promotes heart health, circulation, pain relief and muscle recovery.
  • Near Infrared is the shortest infrared wavelength that promotes anti-aging, skin renewal, cell health, tissue growth, wound healing and muscle recovery. 
  • Far infrared is the longest wavelength and reaches the deepest part of the body, where toxins are stored. FIR raises your body temperature and stimulates at the sweat glands. It promotes detoxification, heart health, weight loss, immunity, general wellness, relaxation, and muscle recovery.

What is Chromotherapy?

Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. The belief that color is important in healing has been around for thousands of years rooted in the idea that specific colors in the spectrum of light positively affect your emotions.

Color has a profound effect on us on all levels; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

The available colors in the Chromotherapy light have been specifically selected based on their wavelength: 

  1. Red: Activates the circulatory and nervous systems. 
  2. Strong Green: Provides anti-infectious, anti-septic and regenerative stimulation. 
  3. Strong Blue: Lubricates joints. Helps address infections, stress, nervous tension. 
  4. Orange: Energized and eliminates localized fat. Helps address asthma and bronchitis. 
  5. Green: Acts as a relaxant. 
  6. Blue: Stimulates muscle and skin cells, nerves and the circulatory systems. 
  7. Strong Yellow: Strengthens the body and acts on internal tissue. 
  8. Strong Indigo: Helps address eye inflammation, cataracts, glaucoma and ocular fatigue. 
  9. Strong Pink: Act as a cleanser, strengthening the veins & arteries. 
  10. Yellow: Reactivates and purifies the skin. Helps with indigestion and bodily stress. 
  11. Indigo: Activates and eliminates impurities from the bloodstream.
  12. Violet: Relaxes the nerves & lymphatic system. Addresses inflammation and urinary illness.

Tips to make the most of your HaloIR session:

Before Your Session

Always drink plenty of water before, during and after your sauna session! We encourage you to bring a water bottle with you, or, we have water bottles to purchase.

Remove all make-up to allow your skin to receive the full benefits of the infrared waves.

The inside temperature of the sauna can cause electronic devices to overheat. We recommend leaving any electronic device out of the sauna to prevent this from happening and damaging your device.

What to Wear

Lightweight shorts and a t-shirt are ok, swimsuits are better, birthday suits are great too. We recommend bringing clothing that is loose fitting and comfortable to put back on after your session. 

Fresh towels will be placed in the sauna (on the bench and the floor) and a bath towel and robe will be provided.

Shoes are not allowed to be worn inside the sauna.

During Your Session

You may not sweat much during your first 2-3 sessions. This is normal for most, especially if you haven’t had a recent history of sweating and/or your body isn’t accustomed to the infrared rays.

Take care not to overheat during your first few sessions. If you feel lightheaded, have a queasy stomach, or start to get a headache, end your session immediately. As your body continues to adjust to the infrared rays sweating can increase dramatically and body temp regulation happens more readily.

If the sauna cabin temperature becomes too hot for your comfort, or the cabin becomes ‘stuffy’, just open the door for a minute or so to let some fresh air inside.

Stretching your arms, legs and back area during your session creates more body flexibility. Massage congested and “knotty” muscles to help alleviate troubled areas.

After Your Session

When you finish your sauna session it is important to relax and cool down while your body continues to perspire. Sit for 5 minutes afterward. Let your body do the work to return itself to it’s regular temperature.

Wait at least 20-30 minutes before you shower.
