There are millions of people around the world who are facing snoring problems that prevent them from enjoying a good sleep. If snoring is keeping you and your partner up at night, there is a latest snoring treatment called “NightLase”. It is a non-invasive, patient-centric laser therapy that promotes quality sleep.
Additionally, it reduces the effects of obstructive sleep apnea and the amplitude of snoring using gentle laser light. There is no use of anesthesia in this treatment.
How Does NightLase Treatment Work?
It is a non-invasive treatment in which laser lights ( Erbium laser) are used to gently heat the tissues in the back of the throat to tighten them. It leads to more open airways thus easy breathing which results in little or no snoring at all. NightLase has a two-step procedure that includes Preheating and laser treatment. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete the procedure and no anesthesia is required during the treatment.
Keep in mind that NightLase cannot cure obstructive sleep apnea, though it can reduce some effects. For most people, 3-5 treatments are recommended depending on their condition. Treatments are separated by 3-4 week intervals. A maintenance treatment every 4-5 months is recommended.
There are minimal side effects, the most common is soreness of the throat. There is no downtime from the treatment and you can eat and drink normally afterwards.
