Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Thin needles slip gently into the skin at specific points on the body, promoting balance and a healthy flow of energy. At the other end of these needles is the sure hand of Sonia Li, who uses the ancient practice of acupuncture to alleviate anxiety, hypertension, and chronic pain. Her holistic treatments have also been known to promote collagen growth, which combats wrinkles and fine lines. Sonia's medical knowledge also comes in handy during metabolic assessments, in which she advises clients to cut back on drinking soda and unrefined oil.
Bright blue and red lights radiate from a collection of tanning booths in the back of Solea Tanning & Beauty Lounge, bathing private rooms in technicolor tones. The front holds equally colorful couches and a unique wavy desk, designed to both catch the eye and firmly remind guests not to sit on it. This well-thought-out decor emits an air of confidence and beauty—the very same traits that the salon aims to instill in its clients through services such as facials, cellulite removal, and tanning.
When Dr. Martin Dayton originally founded Dayton Medical Center in 1973, he became a pioneer in combining conventional medicine with alternative therapies to holistically address a broad range of health-care concerns. This philosophy has never wavered over the decades, and the practice's staff of physicians and practitioners, still led by Dr. Dayton, continues to help patients while using natural, minimally-invasive methodologies whenever possible.
Although the center's treatment regimens draw inspiration from everything from osteopathic medicine to traditional Chinese medicine, they share common goals: addressing symptoms and their underlying causes, and supporting the body's natural self-healing capabilities. These treatments include vitamin injections to bolster metabolisms, acupuncture to restore balance, and infrared light therapy to detoxify bodies. With so many approaches available to them, the practitioners are able to recommend personalized regimens that take each patient's needs and superpowers into account.
As an undergraduate, Dr. Kellie Mosley-Mendez started out as a business major before she had a potentially dangerous mole removed. The experience inspired a change of career plans. With the help of a physician who took her under his wing and even became her godfather, Dr. Mosley-Mendez started on a path that transformed her into the board-certified dermatologist she is today. Her proprietary skincare line includes medical and cosmetic solutions for all skin types. When she's not treating her patients with general and cosmetic dermatological services, Dr. Mosley-Mendez is performing free cancer screenings and educating young people about sun safety.
