Nightlase is a non-invasive treatment to help reduce the effects of sleep apnea and decrease the amplitude of snoring by stimulating collagen production in the throat. Research has demonstrated, this treatment reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
The science behind the treatment:
The NightLase uses a long pulsed laser to treat snoring. The heat prompts the laser to stimulate collagen and strengthen the tissue. The tightening of the throat tissues helps to open up the airway at the back of the throat. This treatment is a less-invasive alternative to current surgical, chemical or radiosurgical options that may require hospitalization, general anesthesia or soft-tissue mutilation.
It is a comfortable and gentle treatment that is not considered painful. At most, patients only feel a mildly warm sensation during the procedure
3 treatments 2 weeks apart with results lasting up to a year.
It is common to notice some degree of snoring reduction after the first session. Once all of the sessions have been completed, the airway size is noticeably increased and snoring volume and intensity will be significantly reduced. Results leading to improved sleep patterns and quality. Most noticeably approximately 12 weeks after the first treatment.
The treatment takes a total of 12-20 minutes per session and there is no downtime required after the treatment
There is usually no side-effects after the treatment. Some individuals may experience a minor sore throat, but generally subsides within a few days.
