NightLase™: High-Tech Solution for the Age-Old Problem of Snoring

No one likes sleeping in a home with someone who snores loudly. At any hour of the night, you never know when you will wake up to a particularly boisterous snore. On the other side of the situation, someone who snores heavily could be suffering from sleep apnea, a medical condition that can lead to serious health complications.

Some cases of sleep apnea have been linked to:

  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Night terrors
  • Mood swings
  • Increased risk of heart congestion

Thankfully, advancements in technology have come up with an incredible way to treat both snoring and sleep apnea all in one. Specifically, NightLase™ laser treatments that use the Dynamis Pro laser system from Fotona have proven highly effective. Patients can say goodbye to mouth guards and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices with NightLase™.

Most cases of snoring and sleep apnea can be traced to an excess of loose flesh in the back or top of the throat. While laying down to go to sleep, the person’s loose flesh will fold up and block the airway, either partially or entirely. Fotona’s Dynamis Pro laser system can be used by a trained medical dermatologist to rapidly heat the flesh, causing minimal pain or discomfort but tightening the flesh in the process. The end result is loose flesh no longer folds over the patient’s airway and reduces the troubles caused by sleep apnea and snoring.

Is NightLase™ the Right Choice for You?

As with any medical treatment, NightLase™ may not be the right choice for every patient. You should speak with a trained medical dermatologist to learn about the laser treatment’s procedures and benefits.

Many patients love NightLase™ because it is:

  • Quick, only taking about 15 minutes per treatment session with no downtime.
  • Painless, causing little discomfort without any need for anesthesia.
  • Effective, producing noticeable improvements in as little as one or three treatments.
