Infrared sauna rooms like the ones from SaunaGen and Polar Sauna are safe, and to some people, are even more comfortable than traditional saunas. The radiant heat in infrared saunas is the same kind of heat that comes from the sun, without the harmful UV rays which burn your skin.
The air in infrared saunas is cooler than in traditional saunas, and you can sit in it for hours and not burn. Infrared heat is so safe that some hospitals use it to warm newborns in nurseries.
To make sure your sauna is as safe as possible, review the UV requirements with your Polar Sauna, SaunaGen, or Caatu Series by Sauna Warehouse infrared sauna room. Also, drink plenty of water to replenish the fluids you lose when sweating in a sauna.
