Laser smoking cessation treatment involves the use of a pen like device in most cases which is pointed using a beam at specific parts of the body. This may include nostrils, ears and chin of a smoker. The science behind it is that the energy released by the laser prompts certain parts of the brain to progressively disassociate with the pleasure or cravings of smoking or to fool the brain that it is receiving the same nicotine effects.
Laser smoking therapy is also known as laser smoking acupuncture. Instead of needles all over your body, laser beams and wavelengths are used instead.
Laser quit smoking treatment has had claims of success with thousands of people. It's critics point to the fact that this method specifically for stopping smoking has not been approved by the FDA.
Typically a patient opting for this treatment is one trying to avoid other treatment methods especially those that involve re-introduction of nicotine such as nicotine patches and nicotine gum. A need for cleansing of internal organs of harmful effects of toxins and chemicals in cigarette smoke is also an equally important driver in laser treatment users.
Laser smoking therapy usually involves more than one 30 minute sessions of laser treatment at about $300 per package of 3 sessions. Information is not easy to come by on the global success rate picture apart from individual reviews. However some put the success rate overall at 20%.
Further reviews of laser smoking cessation treatment claim that the method does nothing to the body except work as a placebo effectively tricking the smokers mind.
Whether laser quit smoking treatment is for you is dependent on the forgoing factors and the advise of your own doctor. Certainly, it is a method still shrouded in mystery as it pertains to stopping smoking. Yet to thousands others it has worked wonders even were other products have dismally failed.
Respectable physicians and medical professionals such as those from Mayo Clinic have questioned the credibility of the therapy.
User laser treatment smoking reviews from sciencebuzz.org are as follows;
I've tried many times to quit and the Laser worked for me. I was skeptical but as soon as i left and went to my car, the smell of cigarettes doesn't appeal to me. I rarely have cravings and am smoke free. - Quinn LeFeber
I tried it and it does not really help. It was like going cold turkey. I used food as a supplement as well and gained weight. A waste of money. I only quit for 2 weeks out of sheer will because I spent $300.00 on it...and the first week I thought I was going crazy. It's a placebo people...nothing more, nothing less. - Anonymous
