Smoke Cessation With The Theralase Laser
At Advantage Laser Clinic we specialize in smoking cessation with low level laser therapy also known as LLLT. By targeting different pressure points in the ear and body, we are able to suppress the physical addiction of nicotine. The application of the laser signals a release of endorphins by the body which provides a relief of the withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit smoking. In combination with this treatment, behaviour modification counselling is provided. The treatment is painless and many quit with just a couple of sessions. A normal smoke cessation program will include 1 laser treatment and a booster coupled with therapy to ensure the desired outcome and to monitor your success.
Advantage Laser Clinic uses the FDA approved super pulsed Theralase laser. We use only the best and most effective laser technologies in order to maximize results. Laser therapy is combined with behavior modification counseling on how to quit smoking. Our specialists will work with you towards your goal.
Nicotine creates elevated levels of dopamine which produces pleasure or endorphins by the body. The absence of these chemicals triggered by nicotine is the main cause of withdrawal symptoms when someone is trying to quit smoking. These withdrawal symptoms from nicotine begin after the first few hours of quitting and peak anywhere between 24 to 48 hours. By directing the laser at precise acupuncture locations on the ear, hands and body, endorphins are released by the brain, pituitary glands and nervous system. These endorphins provide relief of the withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking. The treatment is safe, painless and there are no side effects.
