Certified Laser Center uses Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) on acupuncture points to stimulate the body's natural endorphin system and help ease the withdrawal systems associated with quitting nicotine. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that pass along signals from one neuron to the next, causing feelings and emotions. When you light a cigarette, smoke enters your lungs and triggers the nicotine receptors in your brain within seven seconds. This causes a physiological reaction that releases endorphins into the blood stream. The release of endorphins is associated with feelings of pleasure, motivation, euphoria, social connection and pain relief. Medical reports show that smokers have a higher level of these endorphins, and when they try to stop smoking the sudden drop in endorphins is the main reason for the craving effect. The treatment is also effective for appetite suppression, which can help with weight loss. Tired of trying the latest diet without results? Appetite suppressant treatments will help to suppress your appetite, control your hunger and raise your metabolic rate, increasing your body's ability to burn fat and calories. It will also stimulate the release of endorphins, generating a feeling of relaxation and calm.
The price of the smoking cessation procedure is $300, or approximately 2 weeks of moderate smoking. The price of the appetite suppression treatment is $50 per session.
