Frequently Asked Questions

1.  What is Low Level Laser?


    Low level laser is the application of a cold pure laser light to treat certain conditions.  While low level laser therapy is relatively new to the United States for smoking cessation, it has been in practice internationally in countries throughout Europe & in Canada for over 30 years.  It has been used to successfully treat many musculoskeletal injuries as it promotes healing & tissue repair while reducing inflammation.  Low level laser therapy has also been found to be extremely successful in the treatment of smoking cessation, weight control and stress management.

 


2.  Is laser therapy safe?

 

   The FDA has classified low level laser therapy devices as non-significant risk medical devices.  They pose no health risk to the patient provided that protective eyewear is worn.  The laser has been compared to an ultra-sound in that it is completely non-invasive, heatless and pain-free.


3.  What parts of my body will be treated?


    The points and areas vary depending on the treatment.  For smoking cessation and weight loss, a low level laser is applied to several acupressure energy points on the hands, ears, nose, wrist, feet or arms.  The areas for pain vary by individual client.


4.  How can Laser Therapy help me stop smoking?


    We apply a low level or cold laser to your body's natural energy flow points to stimulate the release of endorphins in the body.  Endorphins are the body's natural mood elevators.  These same chemicals are raised artificially when you smoke.  Laser treatment causes the body to feel effects similar to what you get when you smoke, relieving the physical withdrawal symptoms.  Laser treatments are a drugless way to quit smoking, and are more successful, because most other quit smoking programs involve mind-bending pills or are simply drug replacement therapy, forcing you to wean yourself off of and quit the replacement, which is often harder than just starting to smoke again. 


5.  How long does a treatment take?


  A laser therapy treatment takes about 45 minutes.  However, you should allow 60 minutes for evaluation and paperwork during an initial visit. 


6.  How many treatments will I need?


    Most patients only require one treatment to successfully quit smoking and alleviate cravings.  However a free booster, or second treatment, is offered up to 8 weeks after the initial treatment if needed to assist in combating the mental habit, as long as you haven't smoked.  If you have started smoking again, you will have to start over again with a full treatment.


7.  What does the treatment feel like?

 

   The laser produces a warm, tingly, pulsing sensation.  If you have ever used a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine, the sensation is similar to that.  The effects of the laser are immediate and you will feel tension leaving your body.  Most patients feel completely relaxed and some even fall asleep during laser treatment.  We like to refer to it as a natural high feeling.  In fact patients often return for another session for its calming and relaxing effects.  We also offer stress management treatments to address the tension, pain, sleep deprivation & other physical imbalances brought on by stress. 


8.  How long are cravings alleviated after treatment?

 

    For most people the physical craving will be gone forever.  We will give you tips on handling the mental habits associated with smoking to support your success.


9.  Are there conditions for which laser therapy is not recommended?


    Yes.  You would be excluded from receiving laser treatment if you are pregnant, taking photosensitive medication or steroids, have cancer or epilepsy or use a pacemaker.  Although no adverse side effects have been documented, Life Laser does not treat these particular conditions as a precautionary measure.  We recommend that you consult with your physician if you have specific concerns related to your medical health.


10.  Are there any side effects resulting from laser therapy?

 

   The laser is completely safe and causes no known adverse side effects.  In fact many clients feel very relaxed during and after treatment.


11.  I have smoked for 20/30/40/50 years; will this therapy work for me?


    All you need is a strong desire to quit.  No matter what other programs you have tried and no matter how long you have smoked,  we are committed to helping you kick your smoking habit!


12.  Is treatment affordable?

 

    Please call our clinic to inquire about pricing.  The overall cost for the smoking cessation program is about 5-10% of your yearly smoking expenditure (depending on how many packs a day you smoke).  An average smoker will recover the cost of the laser treatment in 2-3 weeks of not smoking.  A free booster or second treatment is offered up to 8 weeks after initial treatment if desired.  Laser therapy is close to the same price as many other methods of quitting.  Other methods such as the pills, are VERY expensive and have only between 20-25% success. Over the counter methods such as the patch are also expensive and have about the same success rate of 20-25%.


13.  Will I put on weight if I stop smoking?


    We can also treat the energy points associated with appetite control to stimulate your metabolism.  If you're concerned, we can discuss this further with you during your consultation to ensure all your needs are met. 


14.  Are treatments guaranteed?


    Laser therapy has helped thousands of people and is highly successful.  We are confident that we can help you quit smoking with your commitment.  Nicotine addiction consists of both a physical and mental addiction.  Laser therapy addresses the physical aspects but because every person is different and has individual psychological and emotional aspects to deal with, the process can not be guaranteed.  There is no guarantee with any addiction.  We will work with each person to support success and a free booster is available for you if you are struggling.


15.  What is the success rate?


    Statistics for smoking cessation has been reported at a staggering 85 - 90% success rate, the highest success rate of all smoking cessation programs!


16.  Will my medical insurance cover the cost of laser therapy?


    Several insurance companies are now reimbursing the cost of smoking cessation programs.  Contact your provider for more information.  You may be able to use a HCSA (Health Care Spending Account) to cover the cost of the treatment.


17.  How does laser therapy work for weight control?


    A cold laser is applied to various points on the body to stimulate the release of endorphins; suppressing the appetite, reducing cravings and raising the metabolism.  


18.  How does the drug treatment work?


  Drug withdrawal refers to the physiological and psychological process of overcoming addiction to drugs such as heroin or other narcotics, barbiturates or amphetamines by complete cessation of use.  It has been shown that laser therapy can abolish both the physical symptoms and psychological craving present during the withdrawal process.  Through laser therapy patients usually will feel less drowsy, more interested in their surroundings and quickly regain interest in conversation.  In addition running nose, wheezing, stomach cramps and feelings of aching bones and cold will usually disappear after 10-15 minutes of treatment.
