Snoring is caused when the soft tissues at the back of the throat vibrate during nighttime breathing.
NightLase™ Therapy reduces the volume and frequency of snoring and can also relieve the effects of sleep apnoea – a serious medical condition.
NightLase™ uses a laser to softly heat the tissues in the throat – this triggers the collagen fibres to tighten up which improves air flow and reduces the snoring vibrations.
For NightLase™ to be effective the patient needs at least three separate treatments, usually over a six-week period. Each appointment takes approximately 30 minutes and the patient will be able to eat, drink and talk normally straight away. The only side-effect of NightLase™ can be a slightly sore throat for a day or two.
Compared to surgical snoring treatments, NightLase™ is a painless procedure that does not require the patient to take weeks off work to recover. NightLase™ is also a long term solution to snoring, with a recommended annual ‘top-up’ laser session to keep the collagen fibres tight and snoring levels reduced.
