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.
