Evolve Light Therapy

Stimulate Your Mitochondrial Production & Heal Your Body

Near Infrared & Red Light Therapy

Sun Stream Infrared Saunas brings authentic science based Near Infrared and Red Light Therapy to compliment our Far Infrared Saunas.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy!

In the medical literature Red and Near Infrared light therapy is referred to as Photobiomodualtion Therapy or PBMT.

There is decades of research and 1000s of published studies validating the therapeutic use of Near Infrared and Red light with its ‘photochemical’ effects.

Red and Near Infrared light are poorly absorbed (do not generate heat) but are highly transmitted (pass through our tissue). Their effects include reducing oxidative stress and stimulating mitochondrial ATP (energy) production to accelerate our body’s healing processes and reduce pain and inflammation.

The benefits of PBMT result from our cells’ light receptor chromophores being stimulated with single or narrow band frequencies in the 600nm or 800nm range.

Why Choose Evolve Light Therapy?

Evolve Light Therapy LED products are available in either 660nm (Red) or 850nm (Near Infrared) versions.

Unlike other brands, we do not mix the frequencies 850nm and 660nm to produce combination Near Infrared and Red Light devices. All Evolve Light Therapy Devices are single frequency, so as to deliver a more concentrated dose of light to the exposed area. This harmonises with the science and clinical studies which have proven to be successful in treating patients.

All Evolve Light Therapy products are tested with a proper radiometric meter (ThorLabs Photodiode sensor S121C) to ensure therapeutic levels of light energy.

First we recommend positioning yourself 10 – 15cm away from the Evolve Device. Since your cells can only absorb so much light, the recommended dose is approximately 30 Jules. which equates to a treatment time of about 10 minutes.

Always use your Evolve Light Therapy device prior to sweating. For best results be consistent and use your device at least 5 days per week if not everyday.

Expose your naked skin to the light as much as possible for maximum mitochondrial repair since clothing will block the NIR or RED light.

That’s a good question and opinions seem to differ widely. The most common answer is that you don’t need to wear eye protection, however at Sun Stream Saunas we would say it’s best to be cautious and not stare straight into the RED or NIR Infrared LED’s until more conclusive information becomes available. Just relax , close your eyes and enjoy.

Near infrared light therapy is essentially the same as red light therapy, except near infrared energy is invisible, and it penetrates the body deeper than red due to it’s longer wavelength, it reaches deep into soft tissues, muscles, joints, and bone.

Red Light Therapy leads to increased collagen production and optimal skin health. It is 100% natural and safe for all skin types.

So called ‘Full Spectrum’ Saunas DO NOT meet the criteria for Photobiomodulation! Some sauna companies have added incandescent devices including simple heat lamp bulbs or halogen tube heaters to their Far Infrared saunas. These emit only small quantities of Near Infrared and do so over the entire range of Near Infrared 780nm – 1400nm. These devices DO NOT meet the criteria for Photobiomodualtion Therapy as they provide very little energy at the specific required wavelengths in the 600nm and/or 800nm range. These devices are also too hot and therefore our skin cannot be placed close enough to absorb any of the light.

Lasers and LEDs on the other hand are capable of producing the single frequency wavelengths for therapy and can be comfortably positioned close enough to the body, even pressed right into our skin, to ensure the delivery of therapeutic levels of light energy.

NIR has a high transmission rate and passes through our tissue where several biochemical reactions occur associated with cellular energy production and healing. There is decades of research and 1000s of studies published on the therapeutic benefits of NIR and Red light which is known as Photobiomodualtion Therapy (PBMT) or Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) in the medical literature. All of the PBMT research has used either lasers or LED sources of Red and NIR light emitting single frequencies of these wavelengths. 660nm for visible Red light and 850nm for invisible Near Infrared are the specific frequencies often used in the research. The research has discovered that our cells’ chromophores (light receptors) respond to a high intensity of a single frequency in the mid 600s nm and mid 800nm ranges.

All Evolve Light Therapy devices utilise high quality LED’s and emit single frequencies of each specific wavelength so as to provide a therapeutic dose of Light. This harmonises with the 1000’s of published studies and the science associated with PBMT Light therapy.

Outside of the advertising from certain ‘full spectrum’ sauna companies we have been unable to find any information indicating particular benefits of MIR which makes up a very small portion of the light spectrum (only 1.4- 3.0 microns). Mid Infrared is likely absorbed by the water content in our skin as is Far Infrared and can add to the heating effect of the far infrared sauna.

The Ultra Low EMF Nano-Carbon panel heaters in Sun Stream Infrared Saunas emit Far Infrared (FIR) with approximately 70% of the heaters output lying between 5-15 microns (5000nm – 15000nm) and approximately 90% of the output lying between 1-20 microns (1000nm-20,000nm). Thus, our heaters also encompass the Mid Infrared range of 1.4- 3.0 microns.
