NightLase Snoring and Apnea Treatment
The medical power of light to lessen the effects of snoring and sleep apnea.
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 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. During NightLase treatment laser light heats the tissue causing tightening of the tissue which leads to less obstruction and therefore less sound of snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
The procedure is performed in two simple steps: Preconditioning and tissue strengthening.
A full course of NightLase treatment is comprised of three separate treatment sessions over a six-week period. The result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year until a maintenance treatment is recommended. When the patients or their loved ones notice an increase in snoring, a maintenance or another round of treatments may be performed.
NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep, involves no chemical treatment, and no anesthesia. It is a gentle and easy way for the patient and their loved ones to regain a good night's rest.
