It’s natural to have questions about your upcoming laser therapy treatment. The following are a few of the questions we encounter most often at our treatment facility. Don’t see the answer to your particular inquiry? Then feel free to contact a therapist at our office directly by calling a clinic offering The Break Free Stop Smoking Solution that is closest to you.
Laser therapy to quit smoking is a painless, needleless, non-toxic treatment for reducing nicotine cravings. Administered via a low-level laser, this form of treatment stimulates areas of your bodies to help reduce both the physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawals and improve your state of mind.
The laser is placed on trigger points on your hands, ears, face, and legs in order to activate the appropriate endorphins.
When you enter our clinic, you will be greeted by our receptionist and shown into a private treatment room. The first part of the treatment is a conversation between yourself and the therapist. The therapist will give you the tools to recognize the cigarette is not your friend, as well as the tools to overcome any emotional cravings. Before the treatment beings, you will be asked to put on a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the laser. Trigger points are stimulated individually using the pen-like laser. You may feel a slight tingling sensation throughout your body – this is normal. As the treatment continues, your body will begin to release endorphins and powerful neurochemicals that will help you to relax naturally.
We have a 90 percent success rate – often with just one visit! In comparison, other stop smoking aids, like the patch for example, have an effectiveness rate of roughly 30 percent.
Serious side effects are extremely uncommon. The biggest risk is having the laser come into contact with your eyes. We ensure you wear protective glasses that keep your eyes safe.
Some patients have reported that they feel drowsy following treatments.
Absolutely. Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions, laser therapy is a non-toxic, drug-free, non-invasive stop smoking solution.
