NightLase, a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment, was created by Fotona and is clinically proven to decrease snoring and reduce the effects of sleep apnea. It is light enough to be used on sensitive tissue in the mouth, yet, strong enough to deliver effective heating that gets results.
The NightLase laser is used to heat the tissue in the back of the throat. The laser energy heats the tissue causing a tightening effect. This causes air to flow more freely which stops snoring. NightLase is performed in 3 treatments over the course of 2 months. Each treatment lasts around 15 minutes and no anesthesia is required. No cutting, no bleeding, no downtime.
Results are typically seen after the first session.
