Snoring

Sleep Quietly, Wake Up Fresh

Snoring is caused when the soft tissues at the back of the throat vibrate during nighttime breathing.

Snore No More

Snoring is a very common problem for both men and women – it can be treated in a number of ways by clearing out or tightening loose tissue from the throat area that causes the vibrations.
Fotona have developed a unique approach to treating snoring called NightLase™ Therapy.

NightLase™ is a safe and comfortable procedure that uses a laser to tighten the soft tissues at the back of the throat. NightLase™ takes at least three separate visits over the course of several weeks where the professional gently lasers the back of the throat. The laser tightens the tissue which creates more room for air to flow, effectively reducing the vibrations that cause the snoring sound.

Treatment

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.
