Laser snoring treatment - NightLase
Snoring can have a devastating effect on relationships and can cause a number of problems for sufferers as a result of disturbed sleep. Recent research has shown that over 70% of people who try over-the-counter snoring cures do not get the relief they had hoped for. This is because there is no one 'cure' for snoring . Some people sleep on their back and this causes their tongue to roll back, others have problems with stuffy or blocked noses, while other people snore because they're overweight. Most snorers would have tried many physical and medical treatments and these are discussed on the NHS Choices website.
Fotona's NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient's sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
Simple, Safe and Effective
Fotona's patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase is easy to perform and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
A patient friendly solution
A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a six week 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. It's a gentle and easy way for your patients to regain a good night's rest.
