Innovations in laser treatments now make getting the snoring and sleep apnea treatment you need faster, less invasive, more affordable and accessible than ever before.
Traditional sleep apnea surgery is invasive, higher risk, and costly. Yet snoring can have a serious impact on quality of life, while sleep apnea may lead to serious health consequences up to and including death.
As such, many individuals seek out alternatives to remedy their condition.
NightLase® is a patient-friendly, non-invasive laser treatment designed to improve the quality of sleep for individuals suffering from snoring and/or sleep apnea. The treatment involves a gentler approach than traditional surgery, utilizing medical lasers on targeted tissue to induce a tightening of the oral mucosa tissue.
FDA approved in the USA since 2013, this non-surgical laser snoring treatment provides long-term relief from snoring without the need for traditional surgery and recovery.
NightLase® works by inducing contraction of mucosal collagen, using optimized laser pulses to safely and effectively penetrate to deliver heat to tissue. This process has been clinically proven to attenuate and/or reduce snoring, while also offering a non-invasive alternative to reduce the negative effects of sleep apnea.
The entire process consists of three individual treatment sessions carried out over a 6-week period, with results demonstrated to last up to a year post-treatment. Additional NightLase® therapy can be performed as necessary or as directed by your care team.
During each session, a non-surgical medical laser will be used to target and heat tissues at the back of the throat. This heat, applied and delivered to the area acts to tighten and tone posterior palatal tissue reducing the severity of snoring and assisting in further opening up the airway allowing you to breathe easier.
