Snoring is a common problem that can not only affect the person snoring but also their spouse. Sleep apnea is also a common sleep breathing disorder that causes repetitive pauses in breathing. These can not only affect your sleep but also your spouses sleep, common treatments for this are not affective or not comfortable such as mouth pieces. Using innovative technology we offer a treatment that is clinically proven to reduce snoring and sleep apnea.
What is NightLase?
Fotona’s NightLase therapy is a non-invasive laser treatment that reduces effects of sleep apnea and decreases amplitude of snoring. The Er:YAG laser works by safely and superficially penetrating heat into the oral mucosa tissue, this contracts the collagen causing a tightening effect in the tissue which tightens and allows for more room in the air passage- reducing the sound of snoring and effects of sleep apnea.
What to expect during the treatment
A complimentary consultation is required to ensure this is the right treatment for you, the consultation also allows us to get to know your expectation or any concerns/ questions you may have. The treatment itself is 20-30 minutes and there is no downtime, just a mild sensation of a dry throat which can go away with drinking fluids. Once the technician has completed the treatment appropriate aftercare will be given.
