NightLase® Snoring and Airway Improvement
NightLase laser treatment provides airway improvement for people who struggle with snoring, or are seeking a CPAP alternative. Dr. Monika Vermani can help reduce or stop snoring for a better night’s sleep.
Laser snoring treatment may be the best snoring treatment available for many people.
If snoring is interrupting your sleep or that of your loved ones, a good night’s sleep without appliances is now available.
NightLase requires no appliance or device to be worn during sleep, no CPAP, no chemical treatment, and no anesthesia. It is a gentle and easy way for the patient and their loved ones to regain a quiet and good night's rest.
Non Surgical Laser Treatment for Snoring
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 snoring 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. As the tissue is tightened, the airway is enlarged and less obstructed, providing greater airflow and a reduction of snoring resulting from vibration of the “skin” inside the mouth and upper throat.
How Does NightLase™ Work?
Before starting a NightLase™ treatment, we recommend an at-home sleep study. We can provide you with an at-home sleep study system to check your snoring.
We send the results electronically to a sleep expert for a full evaluation. Each NightLase™ treatment session takes about 30 minutes and typically consists of 3 or 4 treatments.
Laser treatments with Lightwalker® are provided in office at about 3 week intervals. Most procedures are completed in about 6-9 weeks.
The procedure is painless. Some patients may feel a warm sensation from the laser as tissues shrink.
Touch-up sessions may be needed every year or two, as NightLase® isn’t a life-long permanent procedure.
