Snoring is caused by things such as your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose vibrating as you breathe. It happens because these parts of your body relax and narrow when you’re asleep. Some people have laxity of the soft palate causing an exacerbation of these symptoms. You are more likely to snore if you:are overweight, smoke, drink too much alcohol or sleep on your back
Sometimes snoring is caused by a condition like sleep apnoea, which is when your airways become temporarily blocked as you sleep.
How it works:
Fotona’s NightLase®* therapy is a patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase can reduce the effects of and decrease the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle laser treatment of the mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating and therefore collagen stimulation.
Research has shown that NightLase can reduce snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring.
A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a two month period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated.
Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment.
Duration of Treatment:
Recovery: No down time.
Treatment Interval: Ussually 2-4 week intervals, 3 sessions are required.
Pre-Treatment Advice: No specific care required.
Post Treatment Advice: Avoid hot drinks for up to 12 hours post treatment.
