Quit Smoking Smoking Cessation Using Low Intensity Laser Therapy A low-intensity laser is used to stimulate specific points on the ears, face, and hands (laser acupuncture), which helps to alleviate the withdrawal and craving symptoms associated with quitting smoking by increasing the natural endorphins in the body. The endorphins will build up in the body over the first 24 to 48 hours and then level off and dissipate between 30 to 45 days after the initial treatment
1. How Will I Feel After the Laser Therapy Treatment?
Most people feel quite relaxed after the treatment. Laser therapy also helps reduce anxiety and stress associated with quitting smoking. It may take a few hours for the effects to kick in, but within 24 hours after the initial treatment, most people should have very few cravings or none at all.
2. How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Many people are successful with just one treatment. Laser Cosmetics/ Health Wellness Clinic offers a complimentary follow up treatment for those who require them at no cost within first three months following treatment. Our goal is to ensure your success.
3. Will Laser Therapy Work for Me/Are There Any Side-Effects?
The use of laser therapy is safe, painless, drug free and highly effective. After 30 years of use, there are no known side effects associated with laser therapy. The benefits of laser therapy are well documented and over 2500 research reports have been published world-wide. Also, studies have shown that up to 80% of people who have received laser therapy have responded positively to the treatments.
4. What About Weight Gain?
Often people replace the habit of smoking with the habit of eating, so it is important to eat healthy, exercise regularly and drink lots of water. However, we do include appetite suppressant points which can help to minimize weight gain.
5. The Cost:
Our regular cost for a quit-smoking session is $450.00, which is close to the money a regular smoker will spend on cigarettes in a month. This does not include the cost associated with the damage to health. Therefore, a better way to think about the cost is a monthï¿½s worth of cigarettes without the cost of damaged health. We do offer an additional complimentary session within 3 months if a client needs.
