BREAKING THE HABIT. Laser therapist Roxanna Trosclair can help you quit smoking with a treatment program that focuses on acupuncture points that release endorphins.
Licensed laser therapist Roxanna Trosclair says that quitting smoking and shedding those unwanted pounds is easier than you might think - especially when you’re using the revolutionary Fresh Start-21 laser therapy program.

“Breaking the nicotine habit may be one of the hardest things a person has to do,” said Trosclair. “But the benefits of not smoking are greater than the reasons to continue.”

Trosclair’s cessation treatment program involves a cold low-level laser session where the pulsating light of a laser is applied to certain acupuncture points on the hands, face, wrists, nose and ears.

It is then absorbed by the skin and cells to stimulate the endorphins that help block out the cravings while leaving you with a feeling of well being.

And when used in conjunction with the Fresh Start-21 program, Trosclair says that the results are amazing.

“This treatment is a comprehensive 21-day program that combines laser therapy, nutrition, fitness and support,” she said. “Smoking addiction requires that you change your behaviors in order to break both the physical and psychological needs for nicotine.”

But Trosclair points out that in an effort to be successful, each client needs to first commit to the laser treatment sessions and be dedicated to quitting by following the step-by-step instructions in the Fresh Start-21 workbook.

“Within five days of having the laser treatment the nicotine has already left your body,” she said. “But it’s the smoking habit and personal wellness that the nutrition program addresses.”

Inside the Fresh Start-21 workbook is a wealth of information that not only motivates smokers to quit, but educates them on why cigarettes are so harmful.

“Someone has to want to quit smoking first for themselves in order to beat the addiction, but there are so many benefits for their friends and family members.”

Passive smoking is defined as the breathing in of air that has been polluted by other people’s smoke and it causes an estimated 3,000 lung cancer deaths each year.

Trosclair says that each treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes and its method is 100 percent natural, non-invasive and there are no side effects.

“One of the main reasons people put off kicking the habit is because they fear that they will gain weight,” said Trosclair. “And that’s what makes this program successful - it also helps you with weight management.

“The same laser that is used to break the smoking addiction is used to aid in weight loss.”

For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact Trosclair at 985-308-0540. All treatment sessions are held at Vous Salon & Spa in Paradis located at 15329 Highway 90. Pricing varies.

Trosclair is also a trained permanent makeup artist. Call 985-308-0540 for details.
