Sleeping has been a subject of concern for those who suffer from snoring and those who must endure a partner snoring. Snoring can be obnoxious, and there have been people who actually refuse to sleep with a snorer. There are, however, many solutions to snoring problems, so you don’t have to move to another room at night.
Snoring is a harsh sound that happens when air slowly passes by the relaxed tissue in your throat. Air flowing past these tissues causes them to vibrate as you breathe. Nearly everyone snores now and again, but for some, it is a chronic problem. Snoring can also indicate a serious health condition, and it can cause relationship issues.
Lifestyle changes like losing weight, avoiding alcohol close to bedtime, and sleeping on your side can reduce snoring. You can also try treating nasal congestion, avoiding sleep deprivation, or using oral appliances or a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. Upper airway surgery is also an option.
A more comfortable and effective way to increase your quality of sleep and reduce snoring is to contact SkinVolution Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, Arizona, for their newest laser treatment: NightLase® treatment. NightLase therapy is a patient-friendly laser treatment designed to reduce the effects of snoring by gently treating the mucosa tissue in your throat.
What is NightLase?
NightLase® is a patented laser device from Fotona Dynamis. The FDA has cleared it for ENT surgery, intra-oral soft tissue ablation coagulation, excision and incision, and laser-assisted uvulopalatoplasty (LAUP). Research has proven that NightLase® reduces snoring with a patented treatment that lessens snoring by using a non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring.
The laser device optimizes the length of laser pulses to allow for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. The laser is gentle enough to be be used on the sensitive tissues inside your mouth but strong enough to provide clinically beneficial heating.
How can NightLase® be so Effective?
NightLase® is biologically different than other laser protocols. It uses the Fontana device that has a dual-wavelength laser. Scientifically, the NightLase® laser uses wavelengths of ND: YAG and Er: YAG. The characteristics of these wavelengths create non-ablative heat generation. The heat from the device opens the conversion of your existing collagen to more elastic and organized forms. The treatment also begins “neocollagenesis” or the creation of new collagen. If these scientific descriptions mean nothing to you, don’t worry. The device works, and that is something important to know.
NightLase® is used for those who have been diagnosed with chronic snoring, or even mild to moderate sleep apnea. You may not be required, or you refuse to wear an appliance or CPAP device (and they are uncomfortable), and NightLase® can be your answer. SkinVolution Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, Arizona’s research proves that NightLase® can reduce snoring and provide a non-invasive modality to reduce the effects of obstructive sleep apnea.
The results after treatment include a visible elevation of the soft palate, uvula, and a tightening of the oropharyngeal tissues. Tightening and elevation in the back of the throat result in more upper airway volume. Better air volume as you sleep avoids the problem of your tissues vibrating and causing snoring.
What Will My Treatment Be Like?
NightLase® treatment consists of three separate treatment sessions over two months. The final results of the treatment last up to a year, and the treatments can be repeated. NightLase® is a satisfying solution since there is no device to wear during sleep and no chemical treatment. The treatments are safe and comfortable and done in the pleasant offices of SkinVolutions Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, Arizona.
NightLase® therapy is not permanent. Your tissues and palette will regain its original position and shape, after about six to 12 months. You can have your practitioner at SkinVolutions Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, Arizona, use NightLase® to touch up your tissues in follow-up appointments. If you refuse to wear the “Darth Vader” CPAP mask or the oral appliance that hinders talking, you need to contact SkinVolutions Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, Arizona. Take advantage of NightLase® therapy. NightLase® focuses on reducing the collapsibility of your upper airway and maintains natural tissue mobility. It is a comfortable solution to snoring reduction and gaining back your sleep.
