Nevertheless, you should consult your surgeon prior to using an Infrared Wrap. Certainly, the usage of an Infrared Wrap must be discontinued if you experience pain near any such implants. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by the far infrared waves. It is still advised that you check with your surgeon and possibly a representative from the implant manufacturer to be certain.
If you have any other form of physical impairment that may affect your body’s ability to thermoregulate or your body’s ability to sweat please consult a physician prior to use of the infrared wrap.
