Lectures from Science: UV doesn't do much about heat but it's short wavelength breaks chemical bonds and destroys paint. IR (infared) is the stuff that heats things up just by shining on them. Aa lot of places use IR lamps to accelerate drying on spot repair. The plastic in your temp. booth has almost no effect on the IR - it goes right through and heats the body up directly.
