Infrared Saunas Fat Lost: Can Targeting Cellulite and Fat Loss Smooth Out Stubborn Areas?

At Sun Stream Saunas, we­ know many are chasing after smoother skin. Doe­s sauna use aid in the fight against stubborn cellulite­ and fat? Can infrared saunas help to smooth out areas of skin that we struggle­ with? Read our article below to learn about infrared sauna and fat loss.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is fat commonly found on the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.  These fats give your skin a lumpy, dimpled appearance on the skin. The reason behind the puckery appearance is the reduction of volume in the dermis, making your skin loose, and positing for a fat layer beneath the skin to rise.


What does the research say about infrared saunas and cellulite?

So how does sauna use affect the body’s ability to metabolise cellulite? According to  research investigating the effects of LED illumination on exercise, infrared saunas can be beneficial in reducing cellulite with regular use.

This experiment was conducted to explore novel approaches to physical therapy beyond established surgical and pharmacological means, through the implementation of infrared light therapy (infrared-LED) and treadmill exercises on a sample size of 20 females, between the ages of 25 to 55. 

They were divided into two groups: one assigned just treadmill workouts, and the other with light therapy while exercising. 45 minutes of exercising was implemented, three times a week, within three months.

With success being measured by the reduction of fat deposits around thigh circumference – and their resulting development as cellulite, as these deposits stretch the skin – engaging this practice could prevent increases in body fat percentage, alongside loss of healthier, lean muscle mass.


Infrared saunas – fat loss and cellulite

Beyond relaxation, we can say that an infrared sauna can provide you with more. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that a 30-minute session can burn up to 600 calories, indirectly targeting the body’s capacity to process cellulite by prompting the body to consume its more immediately available stores of energy, over an extended period of time.

The infrared sauna has been proven to improve blood circulation, enhance the body’s detoxification process, and even break down our fat cells – all contributing to the reduction of our cellulite. 

Sessions take advantage of the body’s homeostatic response in thermoregulation, raising core temperature to induce sweating and elevating metabolic rate – effectively burning calories, and potentially mobilising fat stores for elimination. Studies have demonstrated that if we take a single session in an infrared sauna, it can result in significant calorie expenditure, offering a complementary approach to traditional weight loss methods.

Additionally, infrared saunas are known to be non-invasive and even have minimal effects, even taken in stock against other forms of saunas. In comparison to more physically demanding means to weight loss or gimmicky trends, infrared saunas provide you with a supplementary approach to combine alongside lifestyle changes, without the need for rehabilitation and recovery. 

However, it’s important for us to take note here – approaches to weight loss with an infrared sauna should be done with care and consideration, and we can’t guarantee a linear-cause relationship. We recommend consulting with a healthcare professional, especially if you have underlying health conditions, or if you’re pregnant. While generally safe, prolonged exposure to high temperatures can pose risks like dehydration or overheating.
