Snoring occurs when the air is not able to move freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. This is due to the narrowing of your airway, which causes the tissues to vibrate and make an audible sound. In extreme cases, the airway can become blocked which is known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Many factors can contribute to snoring such as age, nasal and sinus problems, being overweight, alcohol, smoking, medications and sleep posture.
NightLase is a leading-edge laser procedure for the treatment of snoring. It is non-invasive, no appliances needed, simple, and yet effective way of reducing or eliminating snoring.
Laser energy is used to heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect which helps to keep our airway open. NightLase is performed with approximately three short treatments spaced over two months. Each treatment lasts 30 minutes and requires no anesthesia. The procedure is comfortable, and you can resume your daily routine immediately afterward. Results are often seen after the first treatment.
