Laser (like) appearance trick?

Hey guys and gals, kind of an oddball question here. I was wondering if there was a way (or trick) to getting a model to look like a laser. My bosses wanted me to make a picture representing one of our products getting zapped with the heat laser, showing how wide it was in comparison to the product. I've attached what I managed to come up with, and they were more than pleased with it. Me on the other hand...well, maybe I play too many video games, because I wasn't really feeling the laser effect.

 

I used the Red LED texture for it, but I'm wondering if there is a way (without involving Photo Shop) to making it look more like a laser. All I did was make a cylinder and apply the texture.

 

I'm still playing around and experimenting with it, but would love to hear some suggestions or solutions. Thanks!
