SMOKING CESSATION FAQ’S


Is laser therapy safe?

Laser therapy is completely safe, painless and non-invasive alternative medicine which has been widely used internationally for over 30 years. It is a bio-stimulation laser, not a surgical laser.  There is no feeling to the treatment. There will be no change to the surface of the skin where the laser is applied.  Your treatment will be given by a certified Laser Technician, specifically trained in low level laser therapy. The laser signal used by LASERMAID is sometimes called a soft laser with no more power than a 60-watt light bulb.


How effective is laser therapy for smoking cessation?

International clinical studies in Europe and Canada have shown very much higher success rates at ending nicotine addiction that any other nicotine replacement therapy method currently available.

Is it guaranteed?
Unfortunately, because of the complexities of the psychological side of the addiction, no one can force you to stop smoking. The laser therapy will not make it impossible for you to ever smoke again, but it does eliminate the physical connection and addiction the body has to the nicotine.  We can help to eliminate the withdrawal and physical cravings with laser therapy, allowing you to become a non-smoker in the easiest possible way.  Our technician, together with you, will devise an individual plan to overcome the habit and emotional desire to smoke.  You will also receive nutritional guidelines to help your body to detoxify itself very quickly.

What if I start to feel irritable, anxious or think I still have cravings?
You are welcome to return at any time for a free booster treatment.  A booster treatment will reinforce the stimulation already in place from your first visit.  For most people, just one treatment is all that is needed for you to be smoke free.  Booster treatments are very effective for those experiencing any difficulty. 

What does the treatment involve?
It is a safe and painless therapy and will create a loss of nicotine craving.  Points can be treated to control weight gain and aid with withdrawal.  There are no negative side effects.  You will experience an increased sense of well being.

Which parts of the body are treated with the laser?

The low-level laser (soft laser) is applied to specific energy points on the hands, the face, the head and the outer part of the ears which are associated with nicotine addiction or weight control. The auricular acupuncture points are located on the outer part of the ears.  Meridian acupuncture points located on the hands and wrist are also treated.

How long will it take?
Plan to be with us for about 45 minutes to allow the technician adequate time with you for lifestyle counseling.  The laser therapy itself will take about 25 minutes.  Usually one treatment is all that is needed.

How much does it cost?
Our smoking cessation therapy costs $295.00 USD. This includes laser therapy, lifestyle counseling and nutritional information for the detoxification.  One booster treatment is included, if a smoking event occurred after the previous session, there will be a charge for $195.00 USD including one extra booster session.
