If you struggle with snoring, and if snoring is interrupting your sleep or that of your loved ones, an effective treatment is now available for you to help stop your snoring and get a better night’s sleep.
The NightLase laser snoring solution, a non-surgical treatment to stop snoring and sleep apnea, is one of the most exciting treatments available.
What Is NightLase™ and how can it help me?
NightLase™ Laser Snoring Therapy is a pain free, non-surgical procedure that uses a sophisticated laser to tighten and shrink the uvula, soft palate, and surrounding tissues. The muscles then become firmer, and your airway is less likely to collapse during sleep.
NightLase™ doesn’t just help eliminate snoring. The process can also be an effective treatment for sleep apnea by allowing you to breathe easier and deeper while you sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea, often caused by a large tongue or large tissues in the throat, can easily be treated with NightLase™ in most cases.
How Does NightLase™ Work?
Before starting a NightLase™ treatment, we recommend an at-home sleep study. We can provide you with an at-home sleep study system to check your snoring and sleep apnea. We can send the results electronically to a sleep expert doctor for a full scientific evaluation. Each NightLase™ treatment session with our Fotona Lightwalker laser takes about 30 minutes and typically consists of three to four treatments. During the procedure you may feel a warming sensation, but no pain. The sessions are spaced about three weeks apart, so you should be finished in about six to nine weeks.
Touch-up sessions may be needed every year or two, since NightLase™ is not a life-long permanent procedure.
