NightLase is a fast, patient-friendly and practically non-invasive treatment for snoring. It reduces snoring intensity with a gentle laser light treatment. It also can be used to help treat sleep apnea for patients who can’t tolerate CPAP or oral devices. There is no anesthesia needed for this procedure.
Advantages over surgery to remove these tissues
Will not alter normal functions like swallowing and drinking
No significant healing pain – surgery is extremely painful
Tissues will return to former shape if treatment is not effective for the individual. Surgery is permanent and irreversible.
How does NightLase Treatment work?
During NightLase treatment laser light gently heats the tissue, causing tightening of the tissue which leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patients snoring. The procedure is performed in two simple steps:
Step 1: PRECONDITIONING – The laser light preheats the tissue.
Step 2: TISSUE STRENGTHENING – Laser light strengthens the tissue.
A full course of NightLase treatment is comprised of three separate treatment sessions over a four-week period. The final result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year. When the patients or their loved ones notice the effects eroding, another session of treatment can be performed.
