Fotona NightLase therapy is a noninvasive laser treatment recommended for conditions such as snoring and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that occurs when the airway is blocked during sleep and normal breathing is prevented. It typically occurs when the soft tissues of the throat collapse or the tongue rolls back. If untreated, sleep apnea will contribute to a number of serious medical conditions, including heart disease and stroke, depression, obesity, high blood pressure, daytime drowsiness and problems with the nervous, immune and digestive systems. Snoring also occurs as a result of a blocked airway but may occur on its own or as a symptom of sleep apnea.
NightLase therapy is an alternative option to traditional sleep breathing treatments such as CPAP devices and oral appliance therapy. This state-of-the-art laser treatment works by optimizing the length of laser pulses, inducing a gentle tightening effect so that you can breathe easily and quietly while asleep. Treatment typically requires three sessions over a six-week period to provide optimal results.
Benefits of NightLase treatment include:
- A highly safe, precise and controlled treatment
- More comfortable treatment
- A treatment that can be repeated as needed
